Don't hid in the shadows or lurk in the background. If you love skateboarding - you're just as much a skater as any pro! It's not about how high you can ollie or how many tricks you can pull off. It's about passion. The common trait to most real skaters is a love of skateboarding. Whether you are bombing hills, dropping in or grinding ledges - you're a skater like the rest of us.

Tony Hawk wasn't born a great skater and neither was Koston or Vallely. They worked hard, progressed and turned a passion into a career. A lot of what makes an accomplished pr skater stand out goes beyond his skills on a board. Most of the greats give back to skateboarding through foundations, communication and shepherding the industry. You can too!

Giving back to skateboarding can be as simple as telling a parent in WalMart to put the Bratz deck back and go to the local skate shop for a quality board. Notice a kid at the park with a busted kingpin? Send him/her to the local skate shop for a replacement. If you overhear Grandma's plan to buy a grandson a new skateboard at the sporting goods store - tell her about your local skate shop.

Get the word out so fewer people wind up with the inferior boards sold through discounters who only want your money. Talk to your local skate shop owner about what you can do to help promote the shop. They'll be glad to have you on their street team. You can make a difference. K-Mart is NOT a skate shop!

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.
