As the Fourth of July approaches, sales of fireworks, flags, and other patriotic paraphernalia rises. Holidays seem to be more focused on decorating and shopping than the holiday itself.

The fourth of July is a celebration of our independence as a nation from Great Britain. This independence affords us many freedoms that do not exist in other countries. We have the freedom to open our own independent businesses and work hard in the hope of having a good life. Life can be hard, but we have it pretty good in the USA compared to a lot of countries.

Speaking of having a dream, hard work and independent businesses... sounds a lot like your local skate shop. Skate shop owners are passionate about skateboarding and work harder than most business owners to make a living - or survive. It's their love of skating that keeps them going and keeps their shops alive in areas that would otherwise have no skate shop!

On the fourth of July holiday weekend - go buy a new deck from your local skate shop on the 3rd, celebrate on the 4th and rip like a mother-fucker all weekend long! But remember: Wal-Mart has the freedom to sell shitty skateboards, but YOU have the freedom to shop at your local indie skate shop instead!

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.
