What is grip tape for a skateboard?
Grip tape is simply skateboard sandpaper, that is, a piece of rough plastic to be stuck on the deck. This inconspicuous accessory serves many functions and can make your ride much more comfortable in all conditions. Why use the grip?
The most important function is to increase the grip of your feet on the board. Thanks to the rough texture and material, it is harder to slip on the board, even in rainy weather. The porous surface makes the board easier to control and more responsive. Griptape for the board helps avoid slips and falls, making it safer to ride. It can also be considered that the skateboard griptape makes it easier to perform jumps and tricks, because it increases the skater's control over the board.
An important role of the griptape is also to enhance the aesthetics of the board. Thanks to it, you can change the look of your top at minimal cost, and the deck itself is much less damaged, because the grip protects it from wear and scratches from shoes. Protecting the board and at the same time being able to style it, plus the ease of changing the grip and the non-invasiveness of this procedure, make it serve an important aesthetic function.
