Birds of a feather flock together is an old expression dating back to the mid 16th century. In nature, birds of a single species do in fact frequently form flocks. Ornithologists explain this behaviour as a 'safety in numbers' tactic to reduce their risk of predation.

In skateboarding, skaters need to band together and keep their brethren informed about the perils of cheap-ass box-stores selling inferior skateboards. Most skaters know that the local indie skate shop is the only reliable place to buy skateboards and equipment. But there is a surprisingly large segment of the population that thinks a $20 skateboard from Wal-Mart, Kmart or Target is just fine. It's NOT!

Birds of a feather need to skate together and let folks know that crappy skateboards cause injuries and are a scam and waste of money. Tell everyone you meet to check out the local skate shop for all their needs. Its more than a store- its a central hub of the skate scene and community in your area. Don't let your favorite skate shop fall at the mercy of large corporate box-stores. Shop local - Skate global!

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.
