Fine tune to suit your riding style

When it comes to skateboarding, don’t believe all those balding trendies when they reminisce about 360-ing on fancy Kryptonic-clad custom decks back in the 70s. The truth is most of ‘em hit the pavement (literally and metaphorically) on Penny Skateboards. Confused? You won’t be because thanks to Firebox these best-selling boards are back to thrill a whole new generation.

Built in Australia, each gloriously colourful re-issue features a 57cm x 15cm injection-moulded plastic deck, ultra smooth ‘well’ wheels and high quality trucks with super soft bushings and nickel-plated nuts and bolts. Cool? Pick up a Penny and it’s like the last thirty years never happened.

High quality trucks and bearings
with "Super Soft" 90A bushings

Whether you’re an experienced skater, a total beginner or an old fogey attempting to relive your youth, the Penny Skateboard is just the ticket. If you happen to be the latter we guarantee the memories will come flooding back the second you plonk your foot on that waffled deck: 360s, grabs, tic-tacs, daffies – and those were just the tricks you did in the kitchen when mum wasn’t looking.

Okay, so we wouldn’t recommend screaming down a half-pipe on a Penny, but when it comes to cruising around the park, pulling off freestyle stunts or even rediscovering skateboarding 30 years down the line, this classic board is perfect. You can even complete the whole 70s vibe and make a total Tony Alva of yourself (kids get Googling) with some denim shorts, tube socks and a straggly mane. What’s that? You already have? Bravo, or, as they used to say back in the 70s, totally radical, man!

Austin, Hertfordshire - 27th December 2012
Firebox says: Hi Austin, the penny skateboards are on offer until the 3rd of January, or until stock sells out. Grab yourself a bargain quick!
All the kids have these in Australia. There are lots of cheap copies but Pennys are the real deal. My 13 yr old son rides his to school, they are small and light enough to take anywhere, on the bus etc. Very strong too.
Anne, Adelaide - 11th December 2012
Whats the weight limit for these please?
Mike Barratt, Banbury - 29th August 2012
Firebox says: Hi Mike, the weight limit is 100kg, which is the standard requirement for ride on products. I hope that helps
As a 30 year old female, is it inappropriate for me to buy one of these?
Lisa, Portsmouth - 3rd June 2012
Firebox says: Not at all Lisa, you are never to old to have a little fun! Having said that we wont be held accountable for any injuries sustained while using this. Have fun!!
Got one of these for Christmas, and was brilliant for riding around on flat ground, but I felt it didn't have enough stability for going down hills. Personally, I prefer the Stereo Vinyl cruiser, because it comes with better bearings and and wheels. My Penny came with Abec 3 bearings, and the Stereo with Abec 7.
Sam, New Milton, Hants - 3rd April 2012
Had one of these for about 2weeks now and its perfect for the morning commute to my 6form college and around the building. I was at first a bit nervous of the board-to-foot ratio but once it came I was quite shocked at how easy it was to ride with size 10 feet, and how maneuverable it is (probably a 1. 5m diameter to turn it 360degrees - Fab for rolling into lesson or your office on). I wouldn't recommend this for bombing any hills but it is definitely worth the buy if you are looking for something, zippy, maneuverable and lightweight.
