The Penny

It’s getting close to the end of the semester for me. Thus, lots of school work is becoming due, and tests coming up. With all this I recently became interested in FOREX trading. But, you’re not here for trading or tests are you? So, let’s get to what matters, The long boards!

Well kind of, Today I will write about the board that had been most used by me recently. You might have guessed it, it’s none other then the penny board. Why the penny you might ask? well let’s just say today when I woke up it was 18 degrees. Because of which I have been stuck inside doing lots of school work. So, when it does become nice I can go out and board with no worries whatsoever.

The Penny board I have is The Boss Board this is 22 inches of plastic boarding power. I never had a penny style board before. Thus, I didn’t want to blast the hundred something dollars for a name brand penny board. So, I researched for a few days for the best board for the least amount of money. I came up with this, I mostly was looking at customer reviews and this came up pretty high on the list. Of course I was looking at other factors such as, style, shipping time, and price.

I have mostly been using my penny board cruising around my apartment. Going to the kitchen? Hop on the Penny board! Headed to bed? Cruz the Penny towards my bed, then jump right in. Of course it works better when I’m not on carpet.

The best part is just flying around in the buildings here. With it being tiled, one push can get me pretty fast down a hallway. I have even found some ramps that are perfect to use! the only thing is I have to watch out for other people, as I have almost hit someone walking out of a doorway before.

The penny board is perfect for just going to and from class as well. Because it is easy to carry it in your hand when you have too, as well as easy to put under your seat in school. I use it more as a short distance board. I have gone late night cruising with it at a pretty far distance. However, I didn’t go as fast, it was harder to control, and hard to kick. So, it doesn’t replace a good quality longboard at all. However, for short fast trips it is great! IMAG1018
