Founded by Ben Mackay in 2010, Penny Skateboards were inspired by the first plastic skateboard designs of the late 1970’s. In fact, the first Penny board was modeled after a plastic skateboard Ben’s grandfather had given him when he was just 5 years old. The company is even named after Ben’s sister – Penny! Fast forward to today – Penny Skateboards have grown beyond Australia and are beloved around the world. Their seemingly simple design is actually the result of extensive engineering to create a skateboard with an old-school feel but a modern, high-performance ride. All Penny boards feature a super-strength, flexible plastic deck that allows you to carve into turns for a unique riding experience. The authentic “waffle-top” pattern on top of the deck provides excellent grip without the need for griptape. Discover the Penny Skateboards experience right here in the Cruisin City online shop!
