I have a penny. You'd be surprised at how fast that little thing could go. Not nearly as fast as my longboard, but it takes less pushes to get going I found. Plus I really like the flex. I saw a video where a car ran over one and it didn't break. Crazy stuff. I have a skateboard but it makes my feet vibrate (I gotta get it fixed) and my feet are super sensitive so on the penny its a big relief, it's super smooth. Although the price is wayyy up there for a little piece of plastic. But I love mine because it's smalll too. When I was in middle school I couldn't fit my longboard in my locker but my penny would with no problem. I've seen people dominate the skatepark with penny's. Man that was awesome.
