Skateboard grip tape - add grip and style to your board
Would you like to put your personal touch on your skateboard? At SkatePro you will find various types of grip tape in different designs, patterns and colours to any skater’s taste. We offer everything from the standard sheets to spray-on grip tape for skateboards, square sheets, big rolls and cut-outs with patterns.
Skateboard grip tape is the self-adhesive sheet that you put on the surface of your skateboard. It reminds a lot of sandpaper and is granulated to provide a good stance on the board.
Apply your new griptape gently and thoroughly on the board to avoid any air bubbles. Some types of griptape are designed with small, almost invisible holes to ensure an easy and bubble free application. Watch our video on how to apply grip tape to a skateboard.
When you need skateboard grip tape
The first skateboards were not even designed with grip tape. But in the 70’s skateboard manufacturers began realising that there was a need for getting a better grip on the slippery boards. As the years went by, grip tape for skateboards also suddenly became a means of branding through logos, slogans and graphic details.
Here at SkatePro we have recently designed our own high-quality grip tape with very recognizable logo printed all over it. Go check it out.
