This is a trick I learned while cleaning my grip tape today. This is an alternative to slip tape, and 3M tape. Warning: This is for long boarders and skateboarders who simply want to protect their graphic from being sanded away. do not use this if you are planning to do any heavy board slides or grinds. if you end up messing up your new longboard I am in no way responsible. You have been warned. I will be doing my old sector 9 board for you today. I recently did this to my new apex 40.
Step 1: Materials Needed.
Here is the list of materials needed for this instructible.
3.) Clear Packing Tape
4.) Windex Window cleaner
5.) Paper towels
6.) Credit Card / Gift Card
7.) Towel (optional)
Step 2: Step One - Cleaning Your Graphic.
This step can not be ignored, as the tape will need a tight seal on the graphic to protect it. Any dirt or dust on the bottom of the board will make the application of the tape more difficult and could potentially ruin the graphic all together.
1.) Spray a small amount of windex on the graphic.
2.) Grab a small amount of paper towel and rub the bottom of the board.
3.) Repeat until the graphic is clean.
