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 & 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, I/O Mini).

- If you move your foot when you ride - choose a convex shape (Aer-Out, Out-Side, In-&-Out, I/O Mini).

- If you're not sure, or perhaps do both - choose a FootStop with both a concave & convex surface (In-&-Out, I/O Mini).

More about PSD / RipTide FootStops:
Designed by PSD Designs in the U.K. and manufactured by RipTide Sports in the U.S.A. out of an extremely tough urethane, they will take whatever you throw at them. Our international collaboration was made possible by one of our team riders, Aaron Skippings, Tim Pritchard & RipTide Sports.
The 60d urethane is hard yet still flexible. This means the FootStops will conform to the concave of your board yet are able to takethe compression of your mounting hardware!
Designed to take high impacts, 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!
