Penny Skateboards And Cruiser Skateboards
Penny skateboards are the reincarnation of the “banana boards”, a plastic skateboard that was very popular in the 1970′s. Penny skateboards update the classic banana board design with modern day advancements in plastics, alloys and composites.
Penny boards have a non-slip waffle top that provides a great flex that will give you the perfect ride. Penny skateboards are ultra-portable and features a custom 3-inch Penny branded hanger truck plus 59mm/78A Penny wheels with Abec 3 bearings. The Penny board measures just 22 x 6 inches, which makes it the perfect size for any locker or backpack.
As we said, the banana board was popular in the 1970’s, but lost luster because the board manufactures were not able to keep up with the natural progression of the sport. By utilizing modern day advancements in plastics, alloys and composites, the banana board is alive again with a product that has to be seen to be believed. Penny skateboards are available in 14 different color variations including a transparent and a glow-in-the-dark model. Most importantly, the Penny board is a revolutionary product that has seamless appeal to all types of skateboarders – young to old, core to longboarder, beginner to expert.
You won’t believe how smooth and quiet the Penny board is. It’s a ride like no other. A tight little board that can take punishment like a champ.

Cruiser Skateboards History
So, What Is A Cruiser Skateboard? A cruiser skateboard has a classic deck shape with a kick-tail on the back. A cruiser skateboard can be long or short, but is made for straight ahead cruising.
Many cruiser skateboards are long boards. Long boards generally measure 33 to 59 inches long while the width varies from 9.0 to 10.0 inches. There are a number of shapes for longboards, such as pintails, flat-nose riders, drop through decks, drop decks as well as long boards with the same shape of standard skateboards.
For instance, pintail skateboards permit looser trucks and larger wheels which make for better carving or a “surfing” feel. Drop decks and drop throughs allow a rider to be closer to the ground, hence a lower center of gravity which increases stability and allows these boards to support more high speed downhill riding. Mid-length boards, 37 to 50 inches, are the most versatile. The greater weight and bulk they have make them less able to do skateboarding tricks, but this does allow for fluid motion. The longboard’s design allows for big turns and quick short carves similar to the motions of surfers or snowboarders. Longboards have all the same parts as any other skateboard although the parts generally have different dimensions and the wheels are softer, which gives longboards a much smoother, quieter ride that a standard skateboard.
So if you’re looking for cruiser skateboards, Penny Skateboards, or any type of skateboard or skateboard accessory, you’ve come to the right place.
