We are Matt (👨🏽🦱) and Tobi (👨🏼), two German skaters who love to have fun with our friends in the global rolling community. From longboarders to e-skaters, OneWheelers, EUC riders, e-scooters, or any other ride with wheels, we're part of a big family that we're proud to be a part of. Our travels to different countries have allowed us to meet so many welcoming members of our community and make tons of great friends all over the world. If you ever travel to Germany, let us know and we'll hit the road with you!
I (Matt @voltagefrog) am a World Cup finalist in electric skateboard racing and the first to invent a cushioned grip tape. Having a strong connection between rider and deck is vital, as it's the only connection that allows you to control your board. Without a great connection to your board, you'll have a much harder time controlling your board and feeling the true freedom that we skaters love so much. Like riding on a perfect endless wave. First, I developed a few prototypes in my basement, and after testing them in races, my friends were so impressed that they asked me to make one for them. That's how DopeGrip was born. Since then, my best friend and German engineer, Tobi, has joined me to help develop the product further, and it's been a blast working together.
Today, DopeGrip uses custom-crafted materials that have been refined based on data from thousands of test ride miles by various World Cup riders. The data helped us determine the exact composition and physical properties of the waxy density compound, which gives DopeGrip its signature ride feel that everyone loves.
