Grip tapes for decks are necessary. Itís a sandy, gritty material thatís applied to the top of a skateboard deck so your shoes can better grip the board. Without grip tape, there would be a lot less talented skateboarders in the world, and far more injuries. Patterns can be cut from the grip tape so a boarder can personalize his/her board with unique designs.
Usually, if a boarder wants better grip tapes for decks, they pay for the higher quality material: silicon carbide. Itís a thicker, edgier grip tape that wonít lose its grip-action as quickly as some other, more flimsy grip tapes.
