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.

Sharkbling decks 8.3"x32 and 8"x31.25" zinger.

The Deerhunter decks 7.8" and 8"x31.8125"

The Animals series has arrived. Having grown tired of the Brothers Grimm, and little kids complaining that there weren't enough bright colors on their skateboards, Slapstik has responded with Animals. Animals, I couldn't think of a clever name, is a collection of drawings, photos, and glue, illustrating the stupid things that people do and the animals who fight back. The first two of this series are Sharkbling, available in 8.3" and an 8" zinger, and The Deerhunter, available in 7.8" and a new 8" with a 14.25" wheelbase. These decks will be available very soon at a skateshop smart enough to carry them.
