Diamond Grind


Yeah, yeah, pool coping is the way to go, but if you have to go with metal coping, Diamond Grind might be worth checking out. It appears to give you a little grab without sticking. I’ve never seen or ridden it in person, but the video makes it seem like it might be a good thing. Plus, you can’t put pool coping on a rail.


  1. It is good stuff. I was at that session with the flat bar in the upper right corner, much better on a quarter than a rail but still fun regardless. FSGs feel great.

  2. that stuff is super rad, yeah its no sub for pool block but it gives a really nice GRRRRRRR to a grind on metal coping.

  3. We LOVE our Diamond Grind coping on TheBarnacle mini-ramp (4’h x 20’w).

    It is fast and surprisingly not sticky at all on grinds or slides. But still gives the perfect grip for no slip pivots. Just as easy to grind as regular pipe, only with DG, you can FEEL it!

    The ONLY downside is it IS loud. If ya got close neighbors to your ramp, they will not be happy with your new coping, but you most certainly WILL be.

    Christian (DG proprietor) is one cool cat too. Skates his ass off! (Seriously, he’s a skinny bugger.)

    To the person who thinks that “Diamond Grind Coping sucks because it destroys your trucks”: God PLEASE tell me you are joking. I’m an older dude (who owns a ramp with our BELOVED dg coping), been skating a LOOOOOONG time and have many friends in the “newer generation” of skateboarding that are younger…and DO have some subtle differences in how they skate than I guess “we” did (and do)…BUT to make myself feel better I’m assuming that you are joking because that statement is the goofiest shit I have ever heard in my life.

    Hey Kevin…I said it sucks, it was on a micro mini ramp w/ way too tight transition, so the coping was way too big for a tiny structure…didn’t mean to piss u off just. Don’t get why serrated steel coping is so great, no one uses it any way. I’m 41 and only street skated since the 80s pools and pipes were scarce where I grew up

    Lastly any one who can make a dollar and a cent in skateboarding via any plastic Bird gimmick or magical coping good for u skaters are picky bastards w/ zero loyalty to any one. Diamonds are forever- ric flair

    This shit is garbage. You have to force every grind and it still forces you to a stop. It sounds stupid snd does not feel good at all. Gimmicky bullshit.
