He's the first member of this version of the forum, which started in 2005 (https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?action=mlist;sort=registered;start=0). Not sure he was the first first member, though. On a related note, Andy Stone was maybe the first pro to post on here. Sluggo was also an early Slap pro and sent RDS videos to whoever wanted one.

Oh snap. Forgot about sluggo. Dude was super cool and had me hyped on RDS. My friends were saying "wtf??" Ha ha ha

Gipper could be pretty insufferable, but he had that back 5050 on the clipper, so there was respect due. Homie never had a problem talking about prostate milking either ha ha ha dude was probably a cool high school teacher.

As in the Clipper hubba? Why am I only learning of this now?!?!??!

I believe that it was the Hubba hubba.

You're correct. I just remember it being kind of a big deal because homie's jaws were always flapping and clapping, so to show up with some pretty good footage at a legendary spot was legit.

@rocklobster, that's really rad that you got stuff sent to you in SE Asia! It felt like a big deal for a kid on the east coast to get mail from the SF promised land. Can't imagine the level of stoke you experienced!!!

What made Gipper eventually focus? Didn’t he have something like 50k posts? I remember him debating/arguing with a lot of people.

he didn't focus, profile is still up. just disappeared.

Dudes still lurking, for sure. He was once named Turkey Lurkey, after all  :o

@DaSk8D00D was really active around the time I got on SLAP. Definitely someone people either loved or hated, but I thought he was always entertaining. Pretty damn good on his skateboard, too. Heelflip to fakie sig was the best.

Those were wild times my friend, I'm just happy to have gone for the ride


Congrats on SLAP's 20 year anniversary


I see y'all added all those site features I asked for years ago while y'all crucified me for trying to "change too much"

Haven't heard that name in forever!

@rocklobster, that's really rad that you got stuff sent to you in SE Asia! It felt like a big deal for a kid on the east coast to get mail from the SF promised land. Can't imagine the level of stoke you experienced!!!

International mail was much more expensive back in the 2000s, the local skate scene was still maturing at the time and me talking about Cardiel or FUlly Flared must have been like speaking Greek to my homies.

Slap may not have been the most welcoming community, but it's our private slice of the internet that I'm proud to be part of. I love and hate that it still uses HTML and lacks modern message board functionality, but that's what makes it Slap and not r/skateboarding.

Yea, I have absolutely no problem with people liking this type skating, if you want to be gay, do you. Just don't say it's a more pure form of skateboarding, when it's the same thing. That's the only thing i have a problem with people on slap.

Came across a random CotG post from the Ricky Oyola thread.

Only started lurking in 2014 or 15, but I’ve always loved the history of anything skate related so it’s really cool to see the evolution of the site over the years. Happy 20th SLAP.

Happy birthday SLAP! Started my account in 2014? I think? Something like that.

Going back to the office tomorrow so I'll be lurking and posting a lot more.

I was living with the original administrator and got on the board the day it launched. Been on here in one form or another since with breaks in posting and this new name since I couldn't recover my last account.

as a relatively younger person compared to you guys, i never really got to experience skateboarding as a core tenet of my childhood. i only started skating when i was 15 and before that spent a lot of time on a forum for a lego game that i used to play.

now that im a full blown skater, i love the fact that slap still exists so i can pretend im a dope skater dude from the early 2000s talking with other skaters on my dial up internet connection and talk shit with yall. thank you for still being active as this forum definitely is great for someone who wants to keep social media down to a minimum while still enjoying talking to strangers.

I've been on since the early days...had a different handle but lost it when board changed/updated many years ago. 


I think the only fellow PAL I met in person was The General. I met up with her when I went to a trade show in Montreal.

Also been on here since the earlyish days (2008)... but lurked more than posted, hence why im not pal status, yet have the angel logo. Happy bday Slap! We need a "where are they now?" of posters from yesteryear. Wonder what CigBeer and Tobey are up to these days.

calmed down quite a bit is an understatement! mid 00s slap most definitely wouldn't fly, at all.
 
those photoshop dicks were brutal. Whose signature had gipper's face photoshopped on someone getting plowed and someone else eating turds in a toilet?

I think GAY created an account around the same time as I did. And I think he's focusing on his music more. He's popped in from time to time..

Damn, good on you for tracking all that stuff down @WarmUpZone, respect. And happy anniversary to Slap. I love this place.

Used to think this place was a cesspool but would lurk it to get inside info for my blog, and then got pulled in and realized that all the sensationalist shit talk wasn't actually the majority here and that there were tons of funny and smart people. Then I found the "Whatever" section and got hooked.

Personal favourite memories are tearing apart that Bugs dude, making Faster lose his mind over his homophobia, Nick Rix flickin' them kitties, making fun of Handsome Dallas, laughing at Bipsmound's posts, and contributing and losing my mind over so many good photoshop threads. Specifically organizing The Situation photoshop thread where Officer Caruthers took the photoshop game to whole new levels.

Shout out all the pals over the year that made me laugh. Too many of you to name.

Couple years ago I randomly searched my name in google and saw that someone on here photoshopped dicks on my high school senior pictures


I didn't even see that shit when it happened that 7-8 year delayed ether hit different

photoshoping dicks on people is quite tame, slap is really tame compared to kiwi farms or even encyclopedia dramatica

Happy birthday slap, been on and off here for years with different accounts but first joined around 2008. Some highlights for me were jayme fortune and Henry Sanchez meltdowns, some of the first stylin on you threads, getting a fully flared link before it was out, and pontoon boat posts.

Happy birthday Slap!!
This is probably my fav place in the internet, and I really think it’s a lot more welcoming and chilled than people from the outside make it sound. Most of the Pals are genuinely nice people that happen to also be skateboarding nerds! I learnt a shit ton of things by spending hours upon hours here, not only about skateboarding but also about life. You can’t buy that.

One highlight I cant forget was @JB being the nicest dude ever and sending me some spare apple earphones all the way from the US, for free, to me, a broke ass teenager living in Portugal, cause I wrote about mine breaking in the “things you’re not stoked about” thread. Infinite gnars!

Also, RIP 360frip and RustyBerrings. Gone but never forgotten!

Shalom to all the Pals and long live SLAP!   :-*

afaik GAY is doing well. i saw him lurking from time to time. nothing against slap, just had a lot going on last i heard and needed to focus energy on his real life time. he seems to enjoy his slap free time, ha.

GAY if you read this come back to say hi, we love you and miss you.

or don't, dowutchalike.
