How did you discover SLAP?
« on: July 10, 2018, 12:24:20 PM »
How were you introduced to the SLAP Messageboards? Did you hear about it from a friend, or from seeing it mentioned in an interview? Did you just stumble upon it?

When I was first getting interested in skateboarding, I used to Google Search skateboarders in order to learn more about them. I remember that I was searching the Web for information about Andrew Reynolds, and a link for a topic about him on SLAP came up. I remember being so psyched that there was a website full of others who were just as interested in skating as I was. I lurked for a year or two, and then eventually signed up as a member.

i think watson mentioning it on 'you will soon'.
i usedta fuck w/ them skate blogs heavy, BTO, YWS, PI, CBI, QS, texas ted barrow's 'in remembrance of all things whatevs' and frozen in carbonite.
then slowly but surely they all went away except snackman and pilot light [and occasionally chops and peel].
think maybe it was the situation 'covers baby' and that lead me down the dark hole of 'real confessions' [read that thread from the beginning] and then i lurked a while and here we are today.

interviews in magazines always asked people if they read the forums. They always made slap seem like it was more than just a bunch of skate nerds fucking around. it's not...

My friends stopped skating so in the search for a community I found the Bob's trick tips forum. When that got shut down like fifteen years ago I didn't have a place to talk about skating and was pretty bummed. Think I read something about the message board from the actual print SLAP, lurked for a while then made my first account a few years later. Skating with no friends or sense of community sucks ass

I posted on the Transworld board when I first started skating but it sucked. It was either someone over there mentioning this place or just totally random, I'm not sure. The fact that that was like 17 years ago, and now i'm right back here, is in-fucking-sane.

Slap used to be a content website for the magazine where we could would watch videos and shit. The forum was always there for lurking, just started posting this year.

I had no friends in college so I used to lurk online all the time. I found skateboardrumors.com and Slap in '03 or so, then sr got shut down for publicizing Danny Way's address or something lol.

Knew about slap for a while. Getting a desk job combined with the excitement of the Dill styling on you thread made me sign up.

Watson's mention of it on You Will Soon sent me here. So if you hate my posts, take it up with him.

I had a year subscription to the actual magazine in high school around 97/98. Really wish I still had those plus the 4 years of thrasher I had back then too. Pretty sure Pops tossed those years ago. Years later Iíd find this wonderful place. Anyone remember when slap went out of print?

My friends seemed really happy, so I set off in search of sadder friends. That search led me here.

Used to read the mag back in the day because of my older cousin. Came across the forums when I was about 17. I turn 30 in a day so Iíve been lurking for a minute.

I feel like Thrasher may have mentioned it in something (negatively) and then I started lurking.

I want to express my attraction to Morgan Smith. He is such a cutie! I'd love to kiss him, hold hands with him, and snuggle in bed with him. I'm being completely sincere about this.
