The retail experience had changed dramatically and so has skateboarding. These changes have resulted in advances in online retail and the manufacturing of skateboard decks and wheels. But this doesn't mean that all these changes should go hand-in-hand. Online shopping is convenient, but it's equally important to get the right product.

Ordering a book online is much different from buying a skateboard online. Once you determine the title of the book you want, the rest is easy. Skateboarding isn't the same. Sure, you can find a graphic you like on a deck, but that's a far cry from feeling the wood under your feet!

Most indie skate shops will let you stand on a board to get a feel for the concave and size. Try that online! Interacting with the components that go into a complete skateboard is an important part of the process. An independent skate shop wants you to be satisfied with everything they sell you and will go to extremes to make sure you get the best possible products. Online shopping may be convenient, but becoming friends with your local shop will always create a retail scenario that can NOT be replicated online. Your local shop cares about you and will take the time to do simple things like saying Hello and getting to know you. In addition, they'll help you find the best products available.

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.
