Remember the days of wide 9" skateboard decks and monster half pipes? Vert was king, wild colors ruled the day and Hosoi was a huge name in skateboarding. We may be 20+ years beyond those days, but things aren't all that different if you are true to yourself. Styles change. Technologies change. Still, Hosoi is back in skateboarding, the X-Games still sport a huge half pipe and some indie skate shops stock wide decks.

You local indie skate shop is the only place that will understand your yearning for a wide deck and heaps of vert to sail over. Those sporting goods stores and toy stores that sell cheap skateboards are about money not skate-culture. They don't get it. Your local sk8 shop knows the history of skating and it's roots. They are there to help you, not judge you. And your money only matters if you are a happy customer. Indie shops want your business and will work hard to earn 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.
