    Not to be nit picky, but I think it's called a Traction Pad man. Stomp pad is for a snowboard (I'm assuming you're talking about surfboards). Not sure you want to stomp on a surfboard. Too fragile...

    we refer to them as stomp pads in california as well. Most commonly, they are used for "stomping" out the end of tricks. Traction, stomp, its all the same. I use primarily OAM (on a mission) stomps pads (cause they are free =) but before they gave me those, I always used dakine.

    Any traction pad will work. They aren't very high tech. Just make sure you stick that sucker on properly. On any shortboard, I say a good traction pad is a must. There are so many time they save my landings. I have a retro fish with no pad on it, but thats about it other than longboards and my mini gun.

    FYI, after a year or so, they all start to fall apart. I have yet to own one that stays fully intact throughout the lifetime of a board.

    If you really wanna shred, you do it without a trac pad.
