Penny Skateboards - Barefoot Is back

Posted by Route One on 11th December 2015

If you have never been on a Penny board, I strongly advise you do so. The small, quick turning and nippy short boards are great fun for cruising around the beach or just down to the shops. So whether you are a skateboarder looking for a cruiser or just like the idea of using one for your daily commute, then Penny Skateboards are the one for you.

After spending his childhood shaping his own boards with his father, Ben Mackay’s love for skateboarding led him towards starting his own skateboard company. After spending a few years producing his own boards and selling them to shops, he decided to try out different materials like fiberglass, carbon fibre and metal. After a few different prototypes, Mackay decided to try and use plastic and recreate the small plastic skateboard he once owned when he was a 5 years old boy.

Mackay started making Penny boards in 2010 and since then, they have grown from a small Australian company to a huge worldwide force now making short boards, skateboards and longboards, as well as a whole heap of accessories.

Everything for Penny skateboards can be changed and redesigned to match your style. So whether you are looking for a 22” short board or a 27” board, we have you covered.
