I'd like to believe that sporting goods stores are places where one can buy tennis racquets, footballs and skateboards. It would be a dream come true to find such a place that also employed a sales force of people who were knowledgable in all these areas. Alas, sporting goods stores are simply box-stores like Wal-Mart and Target who just cater to sports - in a jack-of-all-trades master of none mentality.

Simply put - sporting goods stores carry crap just like the other department store box-stores and are filled with employees who often have no training or knowledge of the products they sell.

Fortnately, most towns have skateboard shops where you'll find high quality products and employees who know and use them. You just can't trust a sporting goods store to sell quality skateboards or equipment. They stock their shelves with the same low-budget crap that department stores do. Beware cheap skateboards - they don't hold up and will likely rob you of your healthcare deductible at the emergency room.

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.
