My school year is starting pretty soon and I’m looking into either getting a nickel or penny board to ride to and from school and to just cruise around when bored . I like the penny board because of the portability and I could probably throw it in my backpack. On the other hand, I like the looks of the Nickel board. I’m new to skating so it would be easier to stand on and more comftorable for my 9.5 shoe size. Any input or opinions will be greatly appreciated!
