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.
