Seems to be the season to say goodbye to some print magazines. The German “Boardstein” mag will have to stop the press soon and we all have been following what will be taking place with SLAP Magazine.
Well, the final print issue is out now and the people behind the scenes are working hard on getting the website ready for the beginning of December. It is definitely a strange development which is taking place – magazines which have been read, traded, flipped through while taking a dump (that’s where most of my magazines land when they arrive at my house!) or whatever will disappear in the form that we got to know them. I just hope this development works out…here’s what the SLAP editors have to say about what’s in the final issue:
“Itâ€™s a full-on rager, featuring cover boy Heath Kirchart destroying while bedecked in all white; an all-sequences Leo Romero interview; the continuing adventures of Big Blue (our beloved SLAP van) with Arto Saari, Omar Salazar, Tyler Bledsoe, Jason Dill, Keegan Sauder and more; the return of the Tiltmode Army and all their shredding and good-times antics on the eve of their third video; a peek at our annual One In A Million contest road trip with all the unsponsored rippers going from Seattle from Los Angeles under the watchful eye Caswell Berry and SLAP staffers; the SLAP forum Pals putting the Q&A heat to Bobby Puleo; an intriguing interview with Metal legend and NASCAR fan King Diamond; an amazing f/s bigspin heelflip bluntslide for Curtains via young buck Jordan Hoffart; 13 SLAP Pal pros and their favorite SLAP covers of all time; a collage of every SLAP cover ever; and tons more! This is one issue you definitely donâ€™t want to miss!!!”
