When I was in my teens, I was heavily into skating. I had the usual mid-nineties set up. My dad, who was a surfer back in the 70s, said he used to skate. I let him have a go, and he’d always end up falling off. Typical old man, right? But I also had a 70s-style molded plastic board that someone had given to me. I couldn’t skate it. Too small! But my dad jumped on and was suddenly a pro. Both he, and these old boards, gained cred with me that day. Penny Skateboards are simple, colourful boards that fit in a backpack and are easy to cruise on anywhere. Skip the longboards and give one of these a go as your cruiser of choice.
