Has anyone ever griptaped their skis? I was thinking it might be neat if I put grip tape on the top sheet and then did stencils or something. I'm not necessarily planning on doing this I just thought it would be neat and was wondering if any of you have

^^^ On my Candides it was a clear substance with a bunch of diamond ridges, depending on how hot/cold it was the snowsometimes sticked but you just swiped it off and it was all good. but i still like NON griptape skis. thanx

Not wearing poles is alot like getting a blowjob from a guy...It feels good until you look down and realize you're gay.
i've seen pics of people who put that on their tails. there was a pic on here of a kid who snapped his tm's on an urban rail and he had griptape on the tails. i guess maybe it could help with grabs or something
Here's a little experiment.... Paint your skis with spray paint... go skiing for a couple days.. look at the paint...
You'll notice that the paint on the tail disapears supper quick, because for some reason, the backs of your skis hit each other alot. Putting grip-tape on the tails of your skis would only dull your edges.
''Independence is for the very few; it is a privilege of the strong. And whoever attempts it even with the best right but without inner constraint proves that he is probably not only strong, but also daring to the point of recklessness. He enters into a labyrinth, he multiplies a thousandfold the dangers which life brings with it in any case, not the least of which is that no one can see how and where he loses his way, becomes lonely, and is torn piecemeal by some minotaur of conscience. Supposing one like that comes to grief, this happens so far from the comprehension of men that they neither feel it nor sympathize. And he cannot go back any longer. Nor can he go back to the pity of men.'' -my buddy, Fred

shitty idea... candides had a little grip tape patch except it was useless cause when the snow goes over it it becomes completely slidy... and also if your ski was all griptape and you crossed them your bases would get scratched up as fuck!
thats an excellent idea! while youre at it, why not put some trucks and wheels on the bottom too!
sometimes when im running water to wash dishes or something, i think about how lucky i am to have access to running water and how some people will never know such a simple pleasure.
i did that with a pair of old volkls. it didnt work to good. to flexy, even though they were stiff skis.
in science class i sat down to fast and you know how you can sit on your balls. well i did and i sat down really fast and crushed them and right when i sat down i started puking and fell out of my chair. they teacher laughed. i felt like i could pass out i wanted to die.-*NWFT*nUkkA
I still just have no idea how you can mistake your dick and a chicken neck, let alone not realize what you are doing. -manus
if you use it in order to help grab why not just put some on your gloves?
it seems like this stage of life for a lot of people around our age is like when you are playing a video game and you beat the Final Boss, only to find out that was just a decoy Final Boss and the real Final Boss is about 50x harder. and on top of that, you used all your special tricks to beat the Decoy, and you are also low on life. and you have a crappy third party controller.
hmmm well I read this entire thread...very gay...but I was thinking at first...Id like to do something to protect my edges...so i thought why not just put duct tape or something on the inside edges of your skis...then when you cross em and shit the edges will just hit the duct tape and cut it up instead of your nice topsheet and sull the edges...I dont know if It would work in application but it sounds good in theory
buying brand new skis and using them on rails is like buying a new car and driving into telephone poles.
