yepp but you can just buy more grip tape and replace it once it starts to wear away.
grip tape is one of the most important parts to any functioning skateboard. it helps you stay on.
The rim, the strings, the grip... You need to replace the strings and grip very often.
Until it breaks, if the string breaks just restring it, if the grip is worn out get a new one!
grip tape is the gritty sand papery layer that's applied to the top of a skateboard deck
I am not entirely sure about which grip tape you should go with. the best thing for you to do is go to olympia sports or another facility that specializes in skateboards.
Mob Grip tape is most commonly used and known for quality
Mystery or Death. Get some Krooked or Tensor trucks and spitfire weels, some mob grip tape...man. oh and BONES bearings. best skateboard ever
its easier to wear out your grip tape first slide your grip tape along a wall and it should Peel then get a hairdryer and heat up the peeling grip tape to release the glue then with a sharp knife carefully slide the knife under the grip tape while pressing a hair dying over it
no but it can wear out your shoes
How they grip the ground.
Grip Tape. You fail
I have used spraypaint and paint pens on my grip. There is no loss or peeling of the grip... It just paints like canvas, or concrete... or paper.
yes a shaun white skateboard is good. tough grip, trucks, wheels. and deck. nothing is wrong with it

It's some kind od tape so u can get a good grip of ur skateboard and NOT fall off XD
There is a lot of good griptape out there, the top brands are usually made out of the same stuff. As mentioned Mob and Jessop are good, but you can find other grip tapes, such as these: http://www.antisliptapeshop.com/Category/Skateboard-Grip-Tape/151 http://www.heskins.com/skateboard-griptape.htm Which are definitely of the same quality, and are better for personalisation too as they are blank.
yes you can buy every single piece to build a skateboard
the best times to change your skateboard are when the bearings are shot so the wheels don't spin that good anymore, or of course if any part of your board falls off. if you have had a skateboard for a long time and it still rides well than you should just get new grip tape and ask the skate shop to put in on for you, but if they charge then just put it on yourself. I put grip tape on my board and i have no air bubbles and its really easy. Just look on you tube for video's.
