What Is The Function of Grip Tape On a Skateboard?
Grip tape on a skateboard plays a major part in performing tricks and skating experience in general as it keeps your feet from slipping of the board. However, grip tape is not only important in it's technical ways, it is also important for your overall style. At B.Y.B you will find many different grip tapes with some crazy designs that can style up your deck and make you stand out from the crowd.
When you choose your grip tape, it is important to put it on your deck appropriately in order to avoid creating any air bubbles. Once your grip tape is on the deck, you can use your skate tool or a screw driver to outline the shape of your deck on the grip tape and then cut around your deck using a blade.
When Should I Change Grip Tape?
At B.Y.B we always get asked "When should I change my grip tape" and the answer to this question is relatively simple. Once you start loosing grip and find it difficult to flick the tricks, it is probably a good time to invest in a new grip tape.
