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.

Ring around the rosies...

Incase anyone was interested, this is the upcoming slapstik graphic for the summer of 09. The shapes will be the usual 8", 7.8", and a newly requested 8.125" with a 14.125" wheelbase, 7" nose, and 6.625" tail. Should take about a month to get, but it will be worth it. If you're looking for slapstik decks currently available, look no further than Hazard Co. skatepark, and Woody's Halfpipe. If that's not close enough, bitch about it to your local shop and let me know who's giving you problems. As normal, only 30 of these will be made, so the best thing to do is pre-order. 
thanks for looking.
