How to Apply Grip Tape

Jo Che

Step 1 

Peel off the paper backing from the sheet of grip tape.

Make sure you do not fold or wrinkle the grip tape.

  

Step 2 

Center the sheet of grip tape evenly over the top of the skateboard deck.

 

Step 3 

Starting from one end of the board, and moving to the other side, firmly press down on the grip tape while smoothing out any air bubbles that start to form. 

 

Step 4

Use a screwdriver to scrape along the edges of the skateboard. This will remove some of the grip around the edges making the trimming process easier on you and your equipment.

You can use the utility knife to cut a perpendicular line in the excess grip tape if it is resisting the screwdriver too much.

 

Step 5

Use a utility knife to begin cutting around the edge of your skateboard to remove excess grip tape.

Angle your knife towards the inside of the skateboard to make it easier to cut a straight line.

Be careful when using the utility knife and always keep it pointed away from yourself and others.

 

Step 6

Once you have removed all of the excess grip tape, you can use the scraps to sand the edges of your cut to smooth out any small inconsistencies.

Use caution when sanding as the grip tape can become heated.

 

Step 7 

If air bubbles persist, gently use a utility knife to poke a small hole in the grip tape at the center of the bubble and press out the air. 

Be careful when using the utility knife and always keep it pointed away from yourself and others.

 

Step 8

After you have finished applying your grip tape, you can use a small screwdriver to poke holes where your truck hardware will be installed.
