Grip tape is an abrasive, rough, sand paper like tape that is applied to the top of a skateboard deck allowing you to ollie and do skateboard tricks. Skateboarders will quite often cut patterns into their grip tape to make their boards unique. This also helps distinguish between the nose and tail. If you don't want to cut patterns in your grip tape we have many different styles of graphic grip tape with custom screen-printed and laser printed designs. Add a little personality to your riding style. It is super easy to apply grip tape. If you can put a sticker on your locker then you can apply grip tape to your board. Grip tape has an adhesive back and peels apart just like a skateboard sticker.
The best tape for gripping your skateboard is a personal opinion about how much grip you like to have on your skateboard. Some skateboarders love that fresh feel of grip tape and want that glue foot feeling every time they ollie. Let's be honest grip tape is absolutely necessary for your skateboard deck yet grip tape is probably the least thought about part of a skateboard complete. Without it you would have any traction on the board and skateboarding without grip tape is not recommended.
