Skate Warehouse is always excited about new Penny boards coming into the shop, for instance we’re all pretty darn stoked on the Penny 22” Skateboard Complete in Red/Black/White. That’s why we’re equally as excited about a new video that takes a look into the story behind Penny Skateboards. Founder Ben Mackay talks about going from riding one little plastic skateboard when he was five to making millions of them today.
Penny Skateboards is celebrating their second year with a global 2012 product launch this April. Click the pictures below for more info and check out the Penny video. Head over to SW to see the entire Penny collection.
