      A good grip tape that I would buy again

      Grip tape is basically sand paper that is put onto a skateboard. Grip tape on skateboards make sure that your feet don't slip off the skateboard whilst doing tricks. It is an extremaly important piece of equipment for a skateboard. Grip tape some times comes already put onto the skateboard. Some times it can be brought by itself and put on.

      Fracture are a budget skateboarding company so when I brought this grip tape I was expecting it to be bad quality and I was also expecting it to lose its gripping power after a few weeks. How wrong was I! The grip tape was superb! It cost £4.99 for one skateboards worth.

      It came in a roll like in the picture. It was easy to put on and I had no problems. It felt thick and good quality in my hands. After it was put on , it was very easy to cut the excess off. It was easy to remove but I could tell that it wouldn't fall apart when skating. A few hours later I went to my local skate park to try it out. It was amazing! I could easily move my feet around without them getting stuck but when I was on the ramps or doing ollies and kick flips I could feel that I wasn't going to slip off. I could even Ollie higher because of the grip that I was getting. In the first few weeks I actually thought that it was too grippy as my shoes were wearing down from where I was sliding my foot in flip tricks but after breaking it in I don't get a problem with this anymore. I think that the tape just needed to be broken in.

      I am still using this same grip tape six months on and it is doing great! It does have a few pieces missing around the sides but this does not affect its performance. Overall, a excellent grip tape.
