People come in all different shapes and sizes - kind of like skateboards. You'll also notice that skateboards come as completes or you can pick out all the parts you crave and build your dream board. I love snagging parts and taking them home for a beer-friendly assembly session. Getting a precise wheel size, durometer and graphic is a joy - especially when they glide onto your favorite trucks.

So with all this assembly joy (that you local skate shop will do for you if you choose), why would anyone buy a $25 board from a toy store? You know the parts are generic and poorly made. You know the deck will probably snap the first time you land a trick.

With all the drawback to cheap toy store boards, go to you local independent skate shop and put together the exact board you've always wanted and celebrate the awesomeness of not riding a shitty dangerous board. Get the board you deserve from you local indie skate shop - they'll even help you select all the best parts for that dream board. Go for it!

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.
