From a young age, founder Ben Mackay, has been inspired by skateboarding and it has influenced every area of his life. At age of 5 he received his first ever plastic skateboard. He got his board second hand, and painted it blue with gold pinstripes. He thought it was the coolest thing ever. Once he conquered the garage, he started bombing hills. It was terrifying, it was exhilarating, it was bliss. Almost 30 years later he realized it was time, time to bring that little plastic board back, and back for good.Each Penny Skateboard is built with the highest quality raw materials and fanatical attention to detail.
