One minute you're ordering an ice cream and the next minute the waitress dumps it on your lap. Nice job - there goes her tip!

The same thing can happen when skateboarding... One minute you're tearing shit up and the next you're flying through the air - not entirely sure which way is up. WHAM! After wiping off the blood you see your new deck snapped in two pieces and you wonder what the Hell happened.

The answer may lie with where you purchased the deck.
Those $25 completes you'll find at discount stores like Kmart, Wal-Mart and Target are not of the same quality as those at your local skate shop. Even completes at sporting goods stores suffer the same inferior quality. Again, the solution is to buy a quality board from a reputable retailer - your local 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.
