I'm sure everyone likes one over the other, why though? <BR> <BR>less vibration? <BR>more board control? <BR> <BR>Also, does anybody have anything totally against ripping off your eva and slappin' on some jessup? Just curious...

Foam is too sticky and it makes it hard to adjust your feet. <BR>Grip Tape is grippy but not sticky also because of how thin it is you can feel the board and the concave better. <BR> <BR>I took the foam off my first board and put grip tape on. made such a big difference.

i like grip tape better aswell. <BR> <BR>I have a LF armada and its a pain to adjust your feet on the foam grip, its like you are glued down. <BR> <BR>my wood sattelyte has grip tape and ive been having alot more fun riding it, adjusting your feet on the grip is alot easier, and like mitch said you feel the board more

I have to agree with Mitch and Chase. The foam is more difficult to move around on. <BR> I thought I liked the EVA (I use gator grip) because it was softer landings on my old knees during w2w jumps but I have over come it, grip tape allows you to feel so much more of the board. <BR>Its like anything else, go with what you feel comfortable using, you can always change it later or buy more boards,lol

I've never tossed on a grip board before but looks to me there's a time in everyones life where a new saga needs to begin ahhahha

Foam makes an annoying sqeeky noise when you move your feet around.

alright alright. <BR> <BR>but im sure its just like skate gt where it'll begin to smooth out after your journeys to the waterland <BR> <BR>and when your tape gets just remotely damp on a skateboard its slippery as soap, but im guessing the companies have taken that into effect, right?

My old skate was eva and i just got a new one with grip tape and i love the feel of the grip tape. You cant really feel the difference in landings all that much.
