Why would I choose to use a FootStop?

⦁ Gives you exactly the same starting/balance point each time you skate which allows you to skate with more confidence and consistency. If you skate at night, you always know where your foot is on the deck without seeing it.

Which FootStop should I choose?

⦁ If you don't move your foot much when you ride - choose a concave shape (In-Side, In-&-Out or I/O Mini).
⦁ If you move your foot when you ride - choose a convex shape (Aer-Out, Out-Side, In-&-Out or I/O Mini).
⦁ If you're not sure, or sometimes do both - choose a FootStop with both a concave and convex surface (In-&-Out or I/O Mini).

More about PSD / RipTide FootStops.

⦁ They're designed by PSD Designs in the U.K. and are manufactured by RipTide in the U.S.A out of an extremely tough urethane so they will take whatever you throw at them. This international collaboration was made possible by one of our team riders, Aaron Skippings, Tim Pritchard of PSD and RipTide.
⦁ The 60d urethane is hard yet still flexible. This means the FootStop will conform to the concave of your board while still taking the compression of your mounting hardware!
⦁ Designed to take high impact hits so they won't fail if your board hits a guardrail, tree, rocks or the hay bales.
⦁ Designed to protect the rider if he does fall. If you have ever fallen and landed on a metal FootStop, you know what I am talking about!

Small stop for a small board
on 2019-06-07 Verified Purchase
Had a small mini ish cruiser that already had mild wheel flares, but I wanted a stop so I could get aggressive with the pumping... For situations like that, have like a 9 or less inch wide board that pins at the tip or rear, this cant be beat. For a wider deck with a consistent platform it might make more sense to get something bigger, but this stop can still do the job nicely if you prefer to stay compact
Just what I wanted

I'd never used a foot stop and was skeptical of them, I feel very comfortable on skateboards of all sizes without them. However, it was cheap and I figured I'd give it a shot. This foot stop definitely changed my mind. It's just the right size - not obnoxiously large but big enough to secure my size 11 feet. It's made me more confident sliding and helped my speed tuck big time by forcing me to be more consistent in my positioning. I really can't imagine wanting or needing a bigger one, this feels perfect size to me. If you're not sure if a foot stop is for you, this is where you want to start. The shape allows you to play with various angles, try concave or convex setups and really dial in the position. I'm now a foot stop convert. Writing this review now because I'm back here buying a second one for my other setup.
