The constant barrage of retail bullshit can be overwhelming. It seems like every store on the planet wants to sell you a skateboard. I love that skating is increasing in popularity, but you have to realize that only indie skate shops have your interests in mind. Most of these stores with a few boards lying around only care about money.

To them, skateboards are like any product that's taking up space - its a liability. They want to sell everything and bring in new products. They don't care about you , your needs or what equipment is best for you. They want to sell whatever inventory they have and move on. Your indie skate shop is different.

Your indie skateboard shop knows that if you buy quality equipment, you'll be back for more. No one goes back to shifty stores that want to con you. You go back to the stores that treat you right! Indie skate shops are run and staffed by skaters so they know the industry and can help you get the best possible sk8 equipment. Those bargain stores are toxic... and not in a good way. Support your local 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.
