    Random question popped into my head - who invented the no comply? Was it on vert originally and if so, who took it to street? Vallely?

    the straight no comply (where you bounce the tail up a curb) is attributed to Lucero - Neil Blender coined the name.
    not sure about the 180 variation etc

    Ah cool, would never have thought of Lucero. I wonder what the first documented 180 version was?

    Lucero (or Lance Mountain depending on who you ask) is also credited with inventing slappies and Lucero was one of the first people to have photos skating street (i.e. curbs) so the 180 variation is possibly his too. Or Blender. Either way - it's a Voltron of those 2.

    Get a skateshop to order you one from a distro, or maybe Zorlac will sell you one direct from power.

    Yeah I'm sure most shops will happily sell you a whole roll. Having one at home is amazing. I have one right now but there's only one sheet left as I gripped a new board yesterday. Gotta get a new one ASAP. [/survivalist]

    Yeah but unless you're super down with the shop they're going to sell it you at retail price which is £££

    I reckon get in touch with Power or Keen or something and save yourself some money

    I suppose you could get a discount on a whole roll in a good shop but yeah, it might be pricey indeed.

    Ask your shop to get an extra roll in and give them the money for it.

    yeah the only reason i;m asking on here is because we don't have a local anymore otherwise i would sort it there!

    who the fuck am i thinking that i'd ever get through a whole roll anyway, the only reason i'm asking is because i normally just get boards delivered gripped from note but grabbed one in the descent sale forgetting about the grip situation haha

    thought it would be a lot easier and cheaper to buy a full roll online though - state of this ffs https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Enuff-Skateboard-Griptape-Full-Roll-9-X-60ft-Black-Grip-Tape-Delivery/1147896203?iid=401442575087

    Does anybody know anything about this place in Combe, just outside Witney? Like who built it, and when? This American dude that follws me found it on holiday and wants to put it in a zine he does back in Colorado.
