If you thinks its all a gimmick, here’s a few reasons why we are sold on the Penny style.
Why Plastic? The durable flexible nature of the plastic injection-molded decks allows a responsive ride that basically conforms to the shape of your foot. The camber, or slight arch in the deck creates a “pop” that allows ollies and momentum building carves.
The whole negative plastic stigma only applies to single-use plastics. The durable Penny decks outlast traditional wood decks and even survived the tire test.
Why Retro? Every skater must respect the roots of the sport, because old-school skates will improve your style and balance. The narrower decks allow your feet to grip the rails and throw filthy lay-backs and spins. The griptape-free deck is even better for cruisers who prefer to pump down the boardwalk barefoot and hang-ten.
Its the perfect skate to fit in your backpack, buzz down to Trestles without worrying about tiny skate wheels hitting the skids on some gravel or sand.
Instagram Penny regularly celebrates and rewards skaters with style. Post a unique inspiring and artsy instagram, including #Pennysinceforever for your chance to win a penny skates and shirts this March. Tag us @swelldotcom and we’ll give you some props on your stylish skate as well!
