Your ride has to be just right. It has to be the way YOU want it. Off-the-shelf doesn't cut it. You want to pick out each part that goes into that beloved new skate you'll be spending so much time with. That's how you get the perfect ride.

Most retailers (box-stores in particular) don't understand this. They assume if it looks like a skateboard then it must be the same as every other board. Skaters see right through that - which is why we shop at local indie skate shops that offer a wide variety of parts for those custom builds you just can't get in a complete.

Tell everyone you know about the insane joy of assembling a new skate! Getting the perfect sized wheel and setting your favorite bearings is a great feeling. Not to mention buying trucks that really fit the width of your board and aren't jacked up on cheap hard plastic risers. When you do it your way, it gets done right and your local skate shop benefits from your business. Box-stores and sporting goods stores just want to take your money and be done with you. Your local skate shop wants to be there to meet all your customized needs. Thank God for independent skate shops in a world of homogenized commerce.

Stand out. Do it your way. Get it done right. Support your local skate shop!

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.
