The options for putting a piece of sandpaper on your board are getting a little out of control!
Griptape is the gritty, sand paper layer that’s put on top of a skateboard deck. This adhesive backed friction-surfaced material helps that skateboarder stick to the top of the skateboard deck.

Griptape comes in different forms but the most common is in a sheet. You just peel off the backing and stick it on the top of your new board. Griptape also comes in rolls and more recently, companies are making 4 little squares so its even easier to apply.
Over the years griptape companies have worked with different colors and even putting graphics on griptape to give it that custom feel. Here are some of the options that are now available.
