When you hear the announcer yell,
"You wanted the best. You got the best. The hottest band in the world - KISS!"
You expect to see Gene, Paul & Co rocking their asses off. You'd be pretty pissed if a cover band appeared and tried to pass themselves off as the real deal.

So, how can so many mall stores, box-stores, toy stores and sporting goods stores sell inferior skateboards for $25 and not be complete frauds? The answer is: They can't!

Only independent local skateboard shops sell quality boards and equipment. All the cheap knock-off boards you see are poorly made and will fall apart at the wrong time. Do you really want to kick-flip a set of stairs on a $25 board? If you don't break a leg, you'll probably be a pin cushion of splinters when that crappy board snaps in two! Don't drive up your healthcare deductible - buy a quality board from a real skateboard 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.
