slapstik skateboards mission statement

Slapstik Skateboards arose from a series of drawings called 101 Alternate Uses for the Human Body. Slapstik's graphics were originally composed of violent acts centered on floating pastel backgrounds. As time went on, short stories and ramblings related to the drawings began to fill the backgrounds leading to more words than pictures, ultimately ending the 30 deck run. The success of Slapstik suspended the company's scheduled end in 2006, and resulted in Slapstik of the Living Dead. SSLD's concept was to recreate the original Slapstik series with a George Romero living dead twist, which ran from 2006 to 2009. The Living Dead series was soon followed by the fairy tales and fables of Mother Goose and the Brothers Grimm which illustrated classic fables and tales in a modern setting. In 2010, Slapstik returned to the pastel back drops and absurd visuals started in 2001, with animals engaging in foolish human acts in a series simply called Animals. The mission of Slapstik Skateboards is very simple. We will make fun of you.

last saturday....


....I ended up going over to Tim's house to help him work on his truck and we were talkin bout cookin a pig. Hell, it was early when i got over there and around 10am, Jeff done came over smelling like a damn brewery from last night. And had done started drinkin again talkin bout that Huey Lewis song, "Everybody's Workin For the Weekend". So we all took a beer and had the pig started cookin and little while later Tim's son and his skateboard buddies came over to ride the U-ramp we all made awhile ago. I guess Jeff had done brought some Wild Turkey from home and had been sippin off that as well cause a little later in the afternoon he starts in on them X-treme TV shows they got on TV. He likes that Nitrus Circus one, cause he used to do that motor cross stuff when he was a kid, 'member? But started talkin bout one of 'em named Rob's Funhouse or somethin with a skateboard dude on it and how they were sissies cause they could just jump off the thing and on and on and on. We told him he could keep that shit to his self and went on bout our business. Next thing I know, he's down there messsin with them skater dudes ,tauntin 'em. Me and Tim go down there to pull his ass back up to the truck and he's all...."I can do that shit boy. Ya'll ain't take nothin ride around on this thing!" So, he goes up top of the ramp take's one of 'ems board and 'bout that time I'm all..."Better put that thing down boy. You gone bust yer ass!" He didn't like that much and started cussin at me. So i pulled out my camera and was all "Let's see it bad-ass. Let's see ya walk the walk!" He put that thing on the edge of the ramp and said...."Fuck all ya'll sons-a-bitches! Watch this....!"
