Terrible grip from shop
« on: June 07, 2018, 03:30:23 PM »
Just grabbed a new deck and the goofball at the shop gripped it horribly. Sure enough, first time out, two huge chunks tore off of the tail because I landed an ollie wrong - as in my shoe tore off the grip. Have you guys ever complained to a shop about something like this, or do I need to just skate through this deck and grip it myself next time?

Cthulhu!

Your first mistake was letting someone else grip your board.

Don't get me wrong - I will definitely grip it myself next time. What is my best solution for this deck, though? I doubt the shop will do anything about it, and removing grip is an epic pain in the ass. Should I just skate it out and do it right next time?

I sniff my own butthole all the time

hair dryer to melt the glue if it's that that bad but i would prolly just get used to it. you ever see those african ladies w/ hoops around their necks? if they can get used to that, you can get used to bad grip.
it'll only last a month or whatever then get a new deck, grip it right make sure that it counts. you're downtown w/ a discount!
I wanna get spitroasted by them with dickbelts.

Haha. Fine, you win! It's not so much that the grip bothers me...it's just that I'm mad at the stupid guy at the shop for gripping my board so poorly. Every trick I land sloppy takes off a piece of grip. Live and learn.

i would def take it back to the shop you bought it from.  they should stand behind their work.  either give you a new deck so you can grip it urself, or regrip this one.  dont pay for crappy work, its their fault and they will know it when they look at it

A man never lets another man grip his board. Focus the board, reevaluate your life choices and buy another deck. The industry depends on it. The shop grom executed his plan perfectly.
