Everyone has something to hide. Even Ms. Laren above seems to be hiding a few things. It's OK if you're hiding personal information, your real age or your tits, but if you're hiding valuable consumer information - that's bad. And that's exactly what toy stores, discount box-stores and sporting goods stores do when they sell "skateboards".

Anyone who skates can look at a $25 skateboard at Target or Kmart and knows it's crap. However, a large segment of the consumer population that doesn't know a thing about buying a skateboard. The obvious place to go is the local skate shop. Many people do this and then wonder why a complete skateboard at a skate shop is $90 and the ones at discount stores are only $25. For some reason they don't instantly wonder if the $25 board is poorly made, inferior or cheap crap. They just look at the dollar value.

That means some kid out there is getting a really shitty skateboard from Grandma. Lots of people must be buying these cheap-ass boards or the discount box-stores wouldn't stock their shelves with them. Consumers deserve to know the relative quality of the goods and services they purchase. The best way to buy a good skateboard is to do your own research and visit your local skate shop for confirmation and/or advice.

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.
