Penny is the first brand to develop original plastic skateboards. They were first introduced in the mid 1970s, but quickly died out after being unable to keep up with the skateboard industry. They have since made a comeback! Modern advancements in manufacturing have allowed for Penny complete skateboards to hit the streets better than ever before. Penny boards are high performance and long-lasting. They are built with the highest quality raw materials and attention to detail. Penny boards, averaging at only 22 inches, are smaller than most skateboards, which typically range from around 30 to 32 inches in size. They also come in a variety of neon colors and rainbow designs. Female boarders are especially attracted to these smaller boards with vibrant colors! With its sharp turns and small surface area, the Penny board is perfect for both getting around and fitting in your backpack. Penny skateboard decks are also made from their secret plastic formula, ensuring you the best ride possible. Choose from their selection of colors and marble designs. Whether you skateboard down endless hills or through town, having the right skateboard trucks is important. Penny skateboard trucks are constructed from aluminum, making them light, strong, and durable. New trucks will improve your turning and stability as well as boost the overall look of your board. They also come in matching colors to pair with your deck! If you want your skateboard to have a uniform look, then you’ll love Penny skateboard wheels featuring the same bold colors. Made of high quality materials, they give you a fast, smooth ride without the risk of getting nicked or chipped. Finish off the look of your board with Penny skateboard bearings and bushings. Their bearings are built for speed and supplied in a handy case. Tighten or loosen your Penny bushings against the truck for easier turning while you board. In the case your skateboard ever loses a bolt, it’s best to keep some Penny hardware close by! Their Gumball bolts come in sets, and are dipped in colors to match your board.
Penny also makes colorful, graphic grip tape to stick to your deck. Penny grip tape will give you the added restraint you need to performs tricks without slipping off your board. Whether you are building your board or buying a complete, you will not be disappointed with Penny equipment! Take your Penny brand craze to the next level by sporting their variety of apparel items. Penny t-shirts are great to wear while boarding and during the day for casual comfort. For cooler days, Penny long sleeve shirts are the way to go. If you wear caps, then you won’t be able to say no to Penny hats! They are lightweight and quick drying for days of hardcore shredding. Finish off your Penny look with a Penny phone case.

The laws for skateboarding helmets vary from state to state. Many states require that skaters wear a helmet under a certain age, and some states like California make all skaters under 18 wear a CPSC Certified helmet at all times. CSPC skateboard helmets usually have an EPS protective liner that meets the safety standards for skateboarding. Make sure you check your state's regulations before ordering.
CPSC Certified Helmets: California requires that all skateboard helmets must meet the requirements of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Section 890.4 of the Streets and Highways Code enforces these standards in California and will not allow Warehouse Skateboards to ship non-CPSC Certified helmets to California.

Most bearings are measured by an ABEC rating. The higher the ABEC rating, the more accurate and precise the bearing will be. This rating system includes grades 1,3,5,7 and 9. The closer you get to an ABEC 9 rating, the faster and less friction you will have when skateboarding.
Many companies do not use the ABEC rating scale. They brand their own specific technology.

Note: Each brands skateboard helmet size will vary; therefore, it is best to measure your head and refer to the sizing chart specific to each brand of helmet. In order to properly measure your head, follow these steps:
Wrap a soft tape measure around your forehead, just above your eyebrows and ears. Keep the tape measure level from the front to the back of your head. Your skateboard helmet should sit low on your forehead.
If you do not have a flexible tape measure, try marking a string and measuring it against a ruler.
If the helmet is a gift or you cannot measure the skater's head, measure the inside of a current helmet or hat they wear.
Within each skateboard helmet product page there are specific measurements for each skate brand. Use that information, along with your head size, to determine your correct helmet size before placing your order. This will ensure that you receive the best fit.
