People need to come together and embrace the manic insanity that skateboarding represents. We all have our unique styles, ways and whacky shit we do, but we're all skaters. If we unite and make a stand against cheap imitation skateboards, we can make a difference in the life of a kid who gets his/her first skateboard.

Do you remember your first board? Was it a cheap piece of crap that fell apart on day 2? Probably not. If you or your parents bought you a quality board, you probably learned a lot of skills with that first board. Think what might have happened if your first board was one of those crappy boards you see in toy stores or sporting goods stores. It probably would have broken and caused an injury. A tweaked ankle or wrist isn't a good intro to skating.

Would you have continued skating if you go banged up on the first or second day? Maybe not - and that would suck. We love riding the plank and all the frenzied emotion that comes with it. It would be a shame for all those good times to be flushed because of a cheap-ass board. Make sure you always buy quality merch from your local indie 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.
