Skaters have always run afoul of the law. Our counter-culture nature combined with the creative freedom of skateboarding seems to make us targets of local law enforcement. Cops often get a kick out of harassing skaters. Sometimes we skate where we shouldn't and sometimes we leave a mild trail of destruction, but should we be the targets of Police brutality? Not a chance!

Aren't there more deserving criminals out there demanding equal time with angry cops? Seems to me murderers and drug dealers should be higher priority than a skateboarder. And what about crimes against skaters? When was the last time you saw a skateboard at a discount box-store and didn't think, "What a rip off!!"

Becoming a good skater takes time and practice. Finding a reliable skateboard retailer can be a lifelong pursuit. But they're out there - the good skate shops. They may be fewer in number than chain-stores trying to lure you with low prices on inferior skate products. Behind every good skater is good equipment. You can't progress on a board with no pop and stress cracks. Seek out your local independent skate shop and support them with your buying power!

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.
