Teens, Kate’s here today sharing about one of her favorite new finds: Penny Skateboards. She recently got a new Penny Board for Christmas and is hooked. If you’re looking for a new way to stay fit, skateboarding in general is great for fitness, core strength, and coordination. It’s even more fun with friends. Penny Boards are just plain cool. And stylish. And fun.
What does Kate have to say?
How did you learn about Penny Skateboards?
I had seen them all over the internet, and one day I looked up their website and found all of the different choices they have.
What made you want to get a Penny Board?
I used to have a skateboard that was big and bulky and was hard to ride. When I found that Penny Boards were easier to ride, and they’re cute, I decided I wanted one.
You were new to skateboard riding. Talk about learning to ride your new Penny Board.
When I first tried to ride the skateboard, I fell off a couple of times. Then I tried holding on to something like a pole and just getting the feel of how to ride one. Soon enough I pushed off and was riding. It only took me 30 minutes to learn how to ride.
What is your favorite thing about Penny Skateboards?
My favorite thing about my skateboard is it is cute and easier to ride. In my opinion, other skateboards are harder to ride than the Penny Board.
Watch a short clip of Kate on one of her first riding days:
Penny Skateboards are Australian-born but available all over the world. Founder, Ben Mackay, highlights these things about his boards:
- High Quality, lightweight plastic construction
- Top Style
And boy is he right about style. Our favorite thing about Penny Boards is their whimsy and design. Penny lets you custom design your own plastic board (for a premium) on their website. But, we think the regular collection of styles is cool enough.
Penny Skateboards are available in two sizes, 22″ and 27″. The 22″ is the original, and built for maneuverability and speed. The 27″ provides more stability. Kate chose the original 22″. And speaking of choices, let’s look at just a few of the huge color range and fun patterns available in each size:
