Penny Complete Skateboard Review
The standard 22-inch length skateboard can be found in Penny’s Complete range. This size is suitable for kids and shorter teens and adults. Any taller than average adult should choose a longer board, such as one of Penny’s 27-inch boards from the Nickel range.
Being compact and light in weight, the retro boards in the Complete range are very convenient to carry around. In use they give you a fast ride, with easy steering control and great mobility.
The deep crosshatch design across the top of a Penny skateboard does provide some grip. This is something you really need on a plastic molded board, which would become too slippery in wet weather without any grip. If you want to, you can add grip tape on top of the crosshatching, but this is not necessary and the grip on this board does become greater with use.
It’s not the cheapest board available, but you can get a good deal on the price and you will get the quality. With a Penny skateboard you know that you are never going to have any difficulty in getting replacement parts when you need them, for example if you want a new set of wheels.
You do need to be sure, however, that you have a genuine Penny product. There are some fakes around, and you will not find it so easy to get spares if it’s not a genuine Penny skateboard.
You can avoid imitations by making sure that the seller has a good reputation and by checking the board very carefully. A genuine Penny skateboard is one that is made in Australia. If you can’t see where the board was made, then it will be a fake from another country.
When choosing Penny boards you will have a good choice of different colors for the board and for the wheels. Some stunning designs are also available. Do be aware though, if you pick a decorated board, that the design will have been painted on.
Some skaters prefer a board that has a design molded in, because they know how a surface can get scratched and that paint can peel off when it’s damaged. If you are concerned that in time the painted design is going to spoil the board’s appearance, you should choose a plain Penny skateboard, which is made of colored plastic.
A Penny skateboard is a good choice when you want to have a great looking retro board molded in colorful plastic. It will give a smooth ride, with a better grip than other molded plastic boards. You will be able to move about freely and have a lot of fun with this board.
