Way too many people are buying skateboards from Wal-Mart, box-stores, mall shops and sporting goods stores that also sell crochet sets and jock straps. These stores are NOT viable sources for quality skateboard products.
Help the unwitting and downloading these SYLSS "Crappy Skateboard" WARNING LABELS (4-up PDF files) and stick 'em on any of the crappy product you encounter. Nothing makes a cheap skateboard look better than a sign stating "Don't buy it!"
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 sporting goods chains are unsafe and will usually result in unnecessary injuries.
Wise up and buy from your local skate shop. They are the only ones who care about you and ensuring you get high quality equipment. Department stores only want your money. Independent skate shops want to keep you as a customer by helping you get the best available products.
