I'm thinking of getting a job at some local skateshop* this summer...

Problem is.. it's not a "local" skateshop... in other words there's about 20 square feet of skateboard stuff in the whole two story place.

I'd like to work there because I know a lot more that anyone there. How do i know this?
 Today i spent about 5 minutes talking to one of the employees who kept reminding me that 62mm Zipzinger wheels were for *ahem* Sector Nines and that you can't do flippy tricks with them.

So is it better to help out young skaters.... but help a kook shop at the same time?

*note that this is the only shop on my island

"adult skater"
never heard of it
I like to think that skateboarding can't see age.
therefore making skaters equal or else were just like jocks or preps, classifying people.

would you rather be flipping fake meat at mcdonalds?

maybe a little bit of legitness in a kookey place like that would do some good.
with some time you'd be able to influence enough to get some legit shit in there.

be prepared for many uphill battles. i had a similar job to what you described, and it was the biggest nightmare ever. maybe your bosses will be cool, but be prepared for some ridiculous questions and demands that you go against every aspect of traditional skateshop operations.

The obvious answer is to work there, and steal.
Steal shit, hook your friends up, get paid.
By the way, how are you at gripping boards?

Since it's the only shop on your spot of land, I'd say go for it since it might give you a look at another side of skateboarding. If a real shop opens up though, go into food service. I made bank daily as a waiter and a bartender. Then again, I'm a bullshitter in real life so I dug those jobs before I became a computer geek.

just remember that your better than anyone else who comes into the shop and allways totally ignore little kids unless they are with their moms and looking at new decks.  i can't stand most people who work at wack ass second rate skate shops for the reasons above. i'm sure you all know what i'm talking about. don't get me wrong, i've met and rode with alot of cool people who work in shops but for the most part they are dickheads.

Dude, working for anything skate related is a fucking blessing, if you can seriously get the job, be happy. You might have to deal with posers/noobs/jocks/goths that want cool shoes/etc., but it's way better than most other jobs (i.e. fast food. Wait, does fucking Guam even have fast food?). Trust me, I work at Taco 'Apocalyptic Hell,' and I would gladly trade that to work at Zumiez or something.
