Slaptap Closing Down Sale

03/03/2019 21:22

Slaptap Closing Down Sale.

 close

After owning Slaptap for over 5 years I have come to the hard decision to close up shop.  This hasn’t been an easy choice to make but it is the right one for me personally.  As a lot of you will know I have run Slaptap part time while working full time to live. Last year I left my full time job to focus on moving into a career I enjoy rather than continuing to work in a job I hated. This also allowed me to focus more time on Slaptap. Now I am about to embark on a new chapter of my work life I have decided that it isn’t fair on me or Slaptap to split my focus; it needs much more love and focus than I can offer at this time. Slaptap is in a good position to continue to grow if someone wanted to buy the company, stock and assets but it would need some one who is serious about running a business with a passion for skate products. If someone wants to make a serious offer or discuss options I invite emails to info@slaptap.co.uk. If no one comes forward Slaptap will close doors at the end of March. All products will be sold and a huge sale will be underway for the month.

 

I would like to thank everyone for your continued support and I’m sure I will see a lot of you around as I continue to enjoy old-age skating.

 

Much Love. Chris Leaver.

Dan Loveless - Rocket Makio Stall

The thirteenth photo drop is back with one of the team legs members Dan Loveless. This photo was the last trick in what was a very cold but eventful session skating Tiverton Skatepark in Devon. Dan proved that he like Matt Woods in the last photo drop is also one with the force, using his senses and skills to lace this trick after the lights had gone out on us.

Matt Woods - Ally-Oop Topside Pornstar

The twelfth photo drop comes in the form of the big man himself Matt Woods. These photos actually follow on from the last photo drop featuring Niko these were taken in the remaining time we had. Once Nikos photos were done and dusted we decided to try and snatch a photo of Matt before we got kicked out of Rampworld in Cardiff. Luckily we had enough time to get two goes at this shot even if Mr Woods did have to do the later with the lights out using just the force to guide him.

Niko Salaman - Fakie Carve

The eleventh photo drop brings us back to the youngest Slaptap team rider, the tech wizz kid Niko Salaman. After spending the last 2+ years using the same tatty red paint covered seba CJ skates Niko made the call to get the latest Seba SX2 skates ordered. Once they arrived I decided it was only right to deliver in person and we decided that a little session at Rampworld in Cardiff would make for a good location to test them and maybe get a few shots for the blog.

Slaptap Park Edits: Matt Woods And Niko Salaman
Cadbury Heath, Bristol.
 
Cadbury Woods
 
Been a while since the last blog post so I thought it was time to bring the posts back with a bang. I was in Bristol shooting a photo with Cooper and he said that Matt and Niko were skating a park near by so we decided after we had got the shot to pop over and surprise them. I had my camera with me so decided to capture some of their antics. Here is a fun little edit of what they got up to.

Slaptap Time Machine: Ollie Jones
 
New ollie
 
For the Slaptap Time Machine series Ollie came up with a really cool idea of taking an old photo of a spot and re shooting the same trick on the same spot to see if it stands the test of time. He found the old photo on a still existing spot and grabbed Sam Cooper to help him realise his idea.
