Its easier to follow then to be yourself.

Honestly skate grip is just really fun to use. It's a big change from using fbs/rip/ any other foam tape out there. It makes fingerboarding more of a challenge which makes it more fun. Isn't fingeboarding supposed to be about fun? Not people arguing over "trends"

I've used skate grip like twice, after going to Jason Bard's house and using his setups with grip. It was so fun and then when you go back to a setup with FBS or anything everything seems so much easier. At least that's how I feel. I like using skate grip, but only sometimes.

I don't really understand how people like to be more challenged and cut up their fingers at the same time. Not trying to offend but I mean foam just feels nicer and being able to do better tricks is more fun than struggling to do easier tricks. Maybe I'm a little biased happy

There is nothing wrong with people using skate grip.
I just don't like people watching Sam and John videos and totally copying their style/tricks/grip jobs.
happy
