What is grip tape?

Grip Tape

Grip tape is the sand paper-like substance that is applied to the top of a skateboard deck. And, applying grip tape is the first step in skateboard assembly. It is sold by the sheet, and one sheet is all you need. There are lots of choices, when it comes to grip tape, but most skateboarders agree that there's not much difference between them.

this is one more item I do not agree with. Cheap ebay griptape that comes free with crappy cheap blanks sometimes turns into sliptape within days. As long as you go with a reputable company I agree with you. Although I don't think clear grip tape by fkd is sticky enough.
