Rip Grip #2.
Santa Cruz came up with a soft foam stick-on for your board to assist with grabs. Theoretically it helped. At the least it was made in some neat colors. Rip Grip came in a variety of shapes and thicknesses. Everybody was using it.
I'm sure other companies made Rip Grip imitations, but I didn't stumble across any ads when I was looking.
