First, you want to remove your old grip tape. It's pretty tricky and takes a bit of patience. You'll need to use a blow dryer to heat up your grip tape. The heat helps soften the grip tape adhesive. Work a corner of the grip tape up once it's been heated up enough. Keep applying heat to the top of the board with the blow dryer while pulling up the grip tape. Once the old grip tape is removed you can apply a sheet of new grip tape.
