Do things sometimes seem upside down? Don't some aspects of skateboard retail seem turned up on their head? We think so too.

Seeing Mandy Tease upside down is nothing short of a delight, but the same can't be said of illegitimate sk8 retail. Every time we shop for some innocuous item in a box-store, we always see an assortment of $25 no-name skateboards and wonder who the Hell buys them!

Most skaters know these cheap boards are low quality toys that are often purchased by parents who don't know that this lack of quality exists and can result in some unnecessary trips to the Emergency Room when some kid gets flung as a result of cheap-ass-board failure. The parent's insurance deductible soars and that kid can't skate for 6 weeks - all due to someone buying a crappy board.

Prevent this tragedy and get the word out about your local indie skate shop! They're the only reliable place to buy skateboards and skate equipment. All that product in box-stores like Wal-Mart and sporting goods stores is sub-standard junk that will fail like any cheap toy.

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.
