Support Your Local Skateboard Shop #sylss

Purchasing skateboards and equipment from corporate mall chains and sporting goods stores puts money in the pockets of people you'll never meet and who don't care about you or the quality of the products they sell you. Don't mistake a friendly face behind the counter as anything but some kid trying to make a few bucks. And there's nothing wrong with that.

It's his boss and the powers behind such stores that ruin skateboarding. Their vague impersonal approach simply takes money and customers away from the hard working individuals who helped build the skateboard industry by opening independent skate shops that cater to skaters.

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.
