Griptape is - as the name suggests - tape that gives your feet grip on your skateboard. This tape, which looks most like sandpaper from above, makes your board do what you want it to do, so you can kick your tricks. All skateboard decks are supplied with FREE black griptape (on your board or loose). If you want to add some personality to your deck, we also carry coloured and printed griptape from brands like Element and Plan B. For instructions on how to apply your griptape, check Youtube or contact the shop. Make sure you have an old screwdriver and a box cutter handy.
