A Penny board is a type of plastic skateboard, known within the industry as a short cruiser. The term "Penny" is synonymous with "Penny Skateboards", an Australian-based company founded in 2010 by Ben Mackay. Penny is a registered trademark for skateboards, but has been widely generalised to describe all small plastic skateboards due to the brand's popularity. Penny Skateboards revived the plastic skateboard category by pairing a high quality plastic deck with cruiser wheels and trucks. This combination now epitomises a "Penny board" in generic terms. Penny Skateboards was named after Ben Mackay's sister, Penny.
