Behind every crappy skateboard sold in a toy store is a kid who will stop skateboarding before he/she even began. Not everyone can afford a $200 custome ride, but that doesn't mean they should suffer with a $20 complete! Even a used board would be better.

Have you ever spun a wheel on one of these lame-ass completes in a toy store? You'll be lucky to get 10 evolutions out of it. Sure you can lube and tune it to spin 15 times. LAME! And what will you do about the low quality trucks that snap the first time you grind a ledge?

The bottom line is cheap equipment quickly breaks and often causes injury. That's NO way to introduce a kid to skateboarding. You don't have to break the bank or mortgage the farm to get a skateboard, but don't cheap-out and buy the most rickety thing you can find in a toy store. That's not fair to a kid who may well grow up to influence others to skate or become the next Tony Hawk.

Speaking of Tony... a word to parents...
Your kid's interest in skateboarding should produce endless fun not an endless income for lazy name-tag-wearing parents. Let your kid have fun! The best way to ensure his/her fun is to buy skateboards and equipment from your local independent skate shop who will carry quality products unlike toy stores.

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.
