I always put a bit of time into gripping my boards. I guess this dates back to the 80's when I grew up skating and people used to write stuff on their boards and have all stickers and brightly coloured griptape and stuff. Also, I keep the off cuts of grip when riders come to my house and grip boards. For some reason a lot of Heroin riders do this, Rogie used to, but now he pretty much will focus a board (See his trailer for Video Nasty) and there's no point spending three hours on a grip job if you're gonna snap your board in 20 minutes is there?Anyway, a lot of people ask me how I grip my board like that and why, well, me and Compton filmed a little video for you all. Enjoy!
