Wear some latex gloves and focus the board cleanly down the center

Nobody help him he's going to do much, much worse than solid red.
How'd you know about the sheet of rainbow Shake Junt I hide in my room?

I've seen what you do you monster

Don't take credit for my scientifically fascinating low resting heart rate.

In a study of psychopaths and serial killers they noticed that on average they had much lower than average resting heart rates.

There's an even higher percentage of it in real motherfuckers.

Ordered a board from CCS the other day w/ a sheet of red grip and forgot to tell them not to apply it. I was only going to use a little bit of it, and I'm not down to skate a board that's entirely red grip. What's the best way to peel it off without a hair dryer, I don't have one of those.

Use a hot air gun instead of a hair dryer.

I don't know why I just thought of this but did you try taking the board off of the grip instead of taking the grip off of the board?
