Just posting this because I think it looks cool. The grip tape that came on my Bustin Boombox was super coarse. Not as bad as pizza grip, but a lot rougher than regular grip tape. Man, I don’t need that in my life. I left it on the nose and tail, ripped it off the whole middle section of the board, and replaced it with pieced together remnants of normal grip tape.
Ah yes, I also noticed that the tape on my two bustins-maestro and the push king sportster seems a bit extra course. My take is the idea of this is a board for hills, lets keep the feet glued to it. Although I think it is jesseup tape on the bustin’s it may be there extra course tape. I had a DB board pre taped and it was this duper grit mondo shoe holding tape. I talked with other old folks of skate and we all believe that pizza tape was made for sanding down concrete or barnacles.
How’re you supposed to dance on pizza tape?
That’s a good question! Or even move your feet?!
This tape as rough enough that if you brushed your skin with it there would be blood.
