The Penny Skateboard Story
From a young age skateboarding has inspired me and influenced every area of my life. Here I am at the age of 5 on my first ever plastic skateboard. I asked dad to move the Kingswood out of the garage so I could make this kicker ramp. I got my board second hand, and painted it blue with gold pinstripes. I thought it was the badest thing ever. Once I conquered the garage, I started bombing hills. It was terrifying, it was exhilarating, it was bliss. Almost 30 years on I realized it was time, time to bring that little plastic board back, and back for good.
12 years experience in skateboard manufacturing has given me a strong appreciation for what it takes to make great quality skateboards. I’ve channeled everything I’ve learnt in manufacturing and design to come up with a high performance, long lasting, ultra fun plastic skateboard. From looking at any skateboard you can see whether its fundamentals are balanced. You can see it as each component comes together to make the final product and you can feel it under your feet and in your hands. And, it’s what sets Penny Skateboards above all the rest.
Each Penny Skateboard is built with the highest quality raw materials and fanatical attention to detail. Penny Skateboards are designed and built to look good, perform well, and exceed all your expectations. Penny Skateboards, since forever.

Given the various penny style boards that range in price from ~$25-125, I decided to use my Amazon Prime membership to order a few quickly to compare them. I purchased this board (per the review title, with red and blue wheels for ~$75) and also:
[not adding links as Amazon will probably swap URLs quickly so just search Amazon]
~ $50 Tiger Boards Complete 22" Skateboard (22" x 6")
~ $45 Sun Boards 22" Skateboard with Vinyl Deck with Colorful Combos
~ $35 RETRO BOARDS Deck Skateboard
I then tested the flex of the board, the ease of turning, the stability and most importantly the wheels/bearings. The tests were done around the office on carpet (which provides more friction than concrete, but less "real world maneuvering and skating." I was skeptical that these boards differed in quality and while the decks are all very similar, the "smoothness" of the rides on the various boards is markedly different.
The Penny board traveled about twice as far across the carpet when pushed with ~equal force, and was much smoother riding. Also the trucks provided smoother turning (in combination with greater board flex and softer/more resilient rubber it was easier to turn and easier to balance on the board while pushing and turning).
The second place board which was about 2x as good as the other two boards was the Tiger board. It didn't roll as far as the Penny board (about 1/2 to 3/4 as far) and had a slightly stiffer board but it also felt more compact under the foot.
The final two boards were way cheaper feeling all around and were both pretty similar -- although the RETRO bearing felt really cheap and the wheels rolled very poorly.
The board gets me from A to B really quickly, though I will say it's dangerous to ride over bumps (maybe because I'm a novice at boarding).
It helps that the board is lightweight (compared to other boards like: longboards, electric skateboards, etc). If you're a little more clumsy, I would suggest getting the nickel board, which is the 27 inch variant.
I also got this color since it was about an extra $30 off compared to the other color variants.
I also want to mention that my friend bought a knock-off brand, and there's a pretty big difference between the two. Her board was too stiff, and turning was impossible. I'd recommend paying a little bit extra for an authentic board.
