How to remove stomp pad from snowboard

To remove a stomp pad from a snowboard, follow these steps:

Materials you will need:

  1. Snowboard

  2. Hairdryer or heat gun (optional)

  3. Plastic scraper or putty knife

  4. Rubbing alcohol

  5. Clean cloth or paper towels

  6. Stomp pad adhesive remover (optional)

  7. Gloves (recommended)

Steps:

  1. Choose a warm day or use heat (optional): If the weather is warm, it can make the removal process easier. If it's cold outside, or if the stomp pad adhesive is particularly stubborn, you can use a hairdryer or heat gun to warm the stomp pad's adhesive. Hold the heat source a few inches away from the stomp pad and move it around in a circular motion for a few minutes. Be cautious not to overheat or damage the snowboard.

  2. Peel the stomp pad: Start by trying to peel the stomp pad gently from one corner or edge. Use your fingers to lift the pad gradually. If the pad comes off easily without resistance, you can proceed to remove the entire pad this way.

  3. Use a plastic scraper or putty knife: If the stomp pad doesn't come off easily, or if there is adhesive residue left on the snowboard after peeling it off, you can use a plastic scraper or putty knife to help lift the pad and scrape away any remaining adhesive. Be very careful not to damage the snowboard's surface. Work slowly and gently.

  4. Clean adhesive residue: After removing the stomp pad, there may still be adhesive residue left on the snowboard. To remove it, soak a clean cloth or paper towel in rubbing alcohol and gently rub the residue until it loosens and comes off. You can also use a specific stomp pad adhesive remover if you have one.

  5. Wipe clean: Once the adhesive residue is removed, wipe the area clean with a clean cloth or paper towel. Make sure there is no residue left on the snowboard.

  6. Inspect and clean: Inspect the snowboard for any remaining residue or marks. If needed, you can use a snowboard cleaner or wax remover to clean the area thoroughly.

  7. Apply wax (optional): After cleaning, you may want to apply a fresh coat of wax to the cleaned area to protect and maintain the snowboard's surface.

  8. Reapply a new stomp pad (optional): If you plan to replace the old stomp pad with a new one, follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation. Make sure the snowboard is clean and dry before applying the new pad.

Remember to be patient and take your time during the removal process to avoid damaging the snowboard's surface. If you are unsure about any step or encounter difficulties, consider seeking the assistance of a professional snowboard technician or shop for guidance or removal services.
