Most Helpful Customer Reviews
First of all, penny boards are great little boards. I've skated since before I was 7 years old, so I know a thing or two about skateboards and I'm glad I invested in this one.
Let's start out with what penny boards should NOT be used for:
Penny boards are NOT a good board if you're looking to do tricks (i.e. kick flips, shove its, ollies). Sure, if you're quite skilled you could pull off some tricks, but penny boards aren't going to do you any favors in that sphere. They have no "pop" (which is to say they don't spring easily up into the air).
Onto what penny boards SHOULD be used for:
I'm a college student. I bought this board for easy transportation around campus. The penny board combines the easy, smooth riding of a longboard with the lightweight, easy-to-carry aspect of a skateboard. The smooth wheels mean that the board will carry you further than a classic skateboard, with less pushing required. I used to skate all around...
I'm a college student and I was getting tired of walking around campus so something portable yet fast like this was perfect for me. I had considered several other shortboards (and a few longboards) aside from the Penny but ultimately I decided to opt for the portability that comes with the Penny's form factor and I haven't regretted it since. The ABEC-7 bearings that come with these are pretty nice but I put in Bones Reds and it made the ride a bit smoother and faster. I also used Sharpie to add some flair to mine since it was blending in with all the other blue/red penny boards I'd see on campus.
I also didn't really have much experience with riding any skateboards before getting this but it didn't take me too long to pick up. For the first few weeks, I faltered or even fell quite often while riding it. The key is to not care about people judging you, but I guess that's more along the lines of life advice.
My daughter and her friends have recently become huge penny board fans. The Penny Pastel Complete was a big hit! She loved the colours and size. Seems to be an ideal gift for girls between the ages of 14-16. As with any skateboard (particularly for beginners) wrist and elbow pads are highly recommended!
