cheap crappy skateboards

I'm sure there are some little kids who get stoked when they see an advertisement like this. A great price and who doesn't dig Phineas & Ferb? And Tinkerbelle is a little hottie. So anyway...

The problem is little kids don't know any better - they just see something they like and they instantly want it. A fair number of adults have the same problem. They think a skateboard like this is a good buy for their child. FORGET THAT!!

Cheap skateboards like these only cause problems. They're poorly made, they perform horribly and they will likely cause injury.

Wise-up and take your kid to the local skate shop and get him/her a real skateboard, not some janky setup with Scooby Doo plastered all over it. My five-year-old has a real skateboard that he's used for butt-boarding, knee-boarding and now he'll stand and do mock turns on the carpet. Its a real board that will hold up, perform well and won't break the first time he pushes its limits.

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.
