Don't confuse "sporting goods" with "skateboards"! Sporting goods stores want you to make this mistake.

They are two entirely different things. Skaters "live a lifestyle" in which skating is a major element. They don't play a skateboard sport!

Just because you can buy a quality football, lacrosse stick or baseball glove at a sporting goods store, don't assume they sell quality skateboards. In fact most of these box stores and mall shops carry inferior skateboards for about $25 (a complete set up). Your local skate shop can't compete with that pricing, but they shouldn't have to. As an educated consumer/skater you know that a quality complete usually costs around $100.

Don't buy an inferior board that will break and cause injury. Those cheap boards at box stores are not designed by reputable skate companies and will not hold up to the rigors of modern skateboarding. Poorly made equipment causes unnecessary injuries! Your local indie skate shop is the only place that reliably carries quality products made by the same companies that have helped skateboarding grow and expand.

Uninformed skaters/consumers need your help. You can lend a hand and help support local skate shops by downloading these SYLSS "Crappy Skateboard" WARNING LABELS (4-up PDF files) and stick 'em on those crappy products you encounter in the mall, discount stores, toy stores and sporting goods stores.

Only independent skateboard shops sell quality products that won't break or fall apart in the first 10 minutes of use. Boards purchased from crappy department stores and gluttonous box-stores are unsafe and will usually result in unnecessary injuries.

Your local skate shop is the only place that cares about you and ensuring you get high quality equipment. Department stores, toy stores and sporting goods stores only want your money. Independent skate shops want to keep you as a customer by helping you get the best products available.
