get what you pay for…

these days, money is hard to keep ahold of… there are so many things we think we need and want… it’s insane… things cost a bunch more than they should also… another problem is that people are knowledgeable about how much things cost… when someone wants to buy something, often it is considered a rip off..

i agree with this mindset to a certain extent, but people ignore the fact that hard work goes into most things that are made… especially in the skateboarding industry… money is spread so thin by every company, no matter how big or small… it is a tough industry to succeed in… you gotta hustle… constantly…

our local skate shops in the Denver area are awesome… they have open-minded and unselfish owners… the primary focus of their businesses is to push and promote skateboarding with their differing styles… awesome.

what i am getting at is if you go into their shop, realize that when you buy something, you are supporting the shop just as much as the brand you bought… the shop and brand are collaborating to bring you what they think is true skateboarding… you go into the shop because you wanna support them both…

price should never be an issue… asking for discounts or why something is more expensive than another place shouldn’t come up… there is a purpose to every price… feel good that your money is going back into skateboarding… when you buy something at a corporation-run shop, your hard earned money will disappear into some bullshit… keep your money in skateboarding…

respect your local shop and owner… the respect will be reciprocated and you will be rewarded in the future…

these guys rule, period.
