Rip Grip.



This is an ad for OJ II Street Razors, too, but I want to focus on the Rip Grip. Rip Grip was this foamy stuff with an adhesive backing made by Santa Cruz that you put on your board to make it easier to hold onto for grabs. I don't think it ever really helped out much. Rails were better to hold for most grabs anyway. Even if Rip Grip did manage to help you hang on, it was soon realized that you put it in the wrong spot from where you actually grabbed the board. We were just kids doing early grabs off small launch ramps so maybe we were missing out on the full benefits of the product. It looked cool at least and if Eric Dressen had it on his board, well then it better be on mine.

Street Razors were good wheels.

They were damn fine wheels.

Rip Grip was almost totally pointless. I put it on the nose of my Robskopp Eye it peeled off after a couple of weeks. It looked really sweet though. I think I had neon pink to match my neon pink gullwings and bullet 66's. Can you say poser!

I remember putting ripgrip on the nose of my SMA Natas deck. Then thinking it was pointless because you couldnt do nose slides with that crap on it.
