Successful skateboarding goes beyond that manic desire to ride. Even if you just want to race out the door on a hot Summer day and skate all day... you bring a water bottle and a couple of bucks for a burrito. No one wants to over-plan something as simple as a skate sesh, but when it comes to your skateboard equipment, you have to put some effort behind it. You can rage all day in an empty pool with a $20 board from KMart.

Just as you know to avoid that street with the rabid Pitbull, you also know not to buy a skateboard at the mall. Having the right equipment makes all the difference to a successful day. If you had the forethought to bring a cooler, portable grill and enough raw meat to feed an army... you probably put a lot of thought into the skateboard you ride.

You didn't save your money so you could buy a piece of crap board at the local sporting goods store. You may buy video games at a toy store, but you certainly didn't buy your skateboard there! Riding a quality board prolongs your fun and lets you progress to the next level. No one ever bought a $25 board cuz they were road tripping to a monster half pipe.

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.
