Have you heard the expression, "Jack of all trades. Master of none?

That's the mantra of most box-stores and particularly sporting goods stores. Sporting goods stores sell mostly generic stuff. Sure they'll carry well known brands of tennis balls, baseball bats and bowling balls, but check out their skateboard selection. I'll bet you won't recognize a single skate brand (OK, some skate brands make cheaper models to sell into this market - avoid them). Sporting goods stores sell such an array of products that they don't specialize in anything and their sales force won't know the specifics about anything - especially skateboards.

Why would anyone buy a skateboard at a sporting goods store when they can go to a skate shop that caters specifically to skateboarding? Your local independent skate shop knows and carries numerous brands and the employees are skaters who can inform you about products from personal experience. That sounds much better than asking help from someone who just memorized that tennis balls are in isle #5!

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.
