Longboard Tron griptape by skullfaced Longboard Tron griptape by skullfaced
So here it is. My custom griptape. I wasn't so sure about this one at first. I didn't know how to do it at all, my first time and all. At first I wanted to carve in the family prair from the boondock saints movie; nomine patris et filii et spiritus sancti (if you've seen how the deck from beaneath looks like you'll understand why).

But I really didn't have any energy left to do such a hard task so I began to just put a long pink strip across the boards middle...and I just preety much freestyled from there. At first I wasn't happy with the result, jsut glad there was SOMETHING on it. But then my friend said "Huh...it looks like something from Tron, was that the point?"

Basically he made my day...and the future when I'll stand on my board cruising the streets of stockholm. If you haven't seen how it looks on the other side, check it out.

While that does look rather epic, I've heard that coloured grip loses its...well, its grip. Very quickly - within a week of riding I was told. How has your's held up? I'd hate to think of you putting so much effort into that board (I've checked the underside too: very nice :D ) only for the pink to go slick and you only having grip on the black tape.

Loving the squared nose btw - I may be stealing that idea. How is it for nose manuals?

Beautiful board dude B-)

Heh why thank you very much! Well I don't know about the colored griptape really, mine stays on fine. It's the same "brand" as the black one soo...I guess we'll have to wait and see. You can STEAL my square nose idea:P tell your friends :D also I don't do manuals or tricks in general. I only use my longboard as a transport in the summer :D

Oh and thanks for the input on the underside :)

It is just a silly game on DA right now.

My give button is gone so it may have just ended
