I think this is probably the best board for a beginner like me. I just want to learn to skate with my 10 year old son. I'm not interested in doing tricks, even though I know this board could handle it. I just want to get from place to place. I really like the Penny size, but this board seems more stable for someone like me.
Greatest investment. Needed something to take me around campus. Wheels could be slightly bigger because they sometimes get stuck in cracks for a beginner rider. If you are a casual rider and can ride over cracks then you good. Turning is easy. Can make sharp turns because there is a tail you can lift the board up with. Wheels roll smooth no complaint, wheels do start to chip a bit on the edges and I've only been having the board for 2 weeks. But not that big of a deal. Riding in any dampness on the ground can result in loss of grip of the ground. Flexible deck is awesome. Very manuverable and I get plenty of people commenting on how dope the board is. I'm a boss

Penny Skateboards Nickel Classic 27" Plastic Skateboard Complete - red / yellow trucks / green wheels
This is such a fun board. Its great and love to ride it with friends. It came right on time. Really happy with purchase. If your hesitant, get it you won't be disappointed.
I would recommend this board (or any Penny) for beginners who enjoy cruising. I'm used to my longboard. It's about 10" more from the Nickel, but these are easy to learn and adapt to. I'm convinced that this board will last for a long time, if not a lifetime. It's also surprisingly affordable compared to Penny's online shop and even Amazon. I looked all around on the web for a Nickel that was up for a good price, and here it is! I hope whoever has one would agree that you won't go wrong with this board. Get an amazing board for an amazing price. Skate on ya buncha punks!

Asked by Ralph on 4/22/2013
Can I put my 7" Gullwing Mission trucks from my Sector 9 Steady Mini 25" cruiser on a Nickel deck? I mean, the Nickel is wider than my Sector 9, so why does the Nickel have 4" trucks?
by Tim S
No, they won't fit because the holes where you mount the trucks are closer together than your normal skateboard or longboard.

Asked by Dizzy on 1/26/2013
Is this prone to weel bite ?
by Tim S
I know it kind of looks like it is but it's not. I ride the penny all the time and have never gotten wheel bite.
