It may be the old joke of being put in a bad position, but it's true! How many times have you seen a crappy skateboard in a box-store and wondered, "Who the Hell would buy this?"

The answer is scary. Lots of people must be buying $25 skateboards at Wal-Mart & Target, else they wouldn't have carry them. With tight margins and precise purchasing data, these money-grubbing box-stores won't stock any product that doesn't sell. Too mnay consumers are uneducated about skateboarding and the proper equipment that is necessary.

You don't see pros in videos rocking a 4-ply Ninja Turtle board. It's not a style issue - it's a safety issue. You can't really skate on a deck that was designed to last ten minutes at best. Cheap stores sell cheap products. Your local independent skateboard shop sell the kind of high quality equipment designed for the rigors of real skateboarding.

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.
