Grizzly griptape was created by an 11 year old Torey Pudwill. Torey began making wax out of a bear shaped chocolate mold. He progressed to cut outs on grip tape sheets which he would then sell to his local skate shop. His skateboarding career grew leaving no time for his entrepreneurial cottage industry. Years later and backed by Diamond, Grizzly griptape has an epic team list and produces consistently interesting grip alternatives to make your board your own.
