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.

American Red Cross

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in helping Slapstik Skateboards raise money for the American Red Cross Haiti Earthquake relief. A portion of the board sales from the Dark Ages series totaling $75 was donated to the relief effort. Again, thanks for the support, and enjoy the new line of graphics coming in July of 2010. Slapstik would personally like to thank the following shops for their support in this drive.
Nocturnal
Exit
Bluetile
South Philly Comics
Square Peg Artery
