A Penny Board is a short plastic cruiser-skateboard that is produced by an australian-based company. The boards are made out of a light weight and flexible plastic material that’s also really strong and long-lasting.   The Penny Board has a basic design with the option to choose between an array of colors and different sizes. The plastic cruiser wheels are often a different color than the board it selves, and so people mixes colors and personalize their boards.   The plastic cruiser wheels allow the board to ride comfortably over rough tarmac and also picks up speed quicker than a normal skateboard would.   Penny skateboards was born in 2010, and founded by Ben Mackay. The idea came from a plastic cruiser skateboard he had when he was 5 years old.
