is the gritty sand paper like construction that you layer on top of your skate deck. Rough to the touch, it creates traction for feet to grip onto the board. This is especially important whilst doing tricks. Grip tape

is normally made from silicon carbonate or a cheaper material called aluminium oxide. MOB
