The nickel board is like the penny board but more larger. The Nickel is a board at 27-inches long by 7.5-inches wide, fitted out with super high quality Penny branded components, including custom 4-inch Penny trucks, the beloved 59mm 78A super smooth Penny wheels and Penny ABEC 3 bearings. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities. The cool thing about it is that it is made out of plastic and so it’s waterproof and more versatile. Don’t worry, even though it’s made out of plastic it won’t snap or get damaged easily. It’s a tough board!

Do you want to know what i think of the board? Well, let me tell you. I love the board, and this is why; First off, the board is big enough to do tricks yet portable and easy to take with me. It is smooth with ABEC 3 rating, it feels like im skating on air! There are tons of colours to choose from for example, Black-Purple-Green, Orange-Purple-Green, Glow-Black-Green etc. You can even customize your own colour sequence! It is amazing how the little thing can withstand the weight of a car (as you might have seen from the video i put up earlier in my blog) As you might guess my rating for this product is a straight 5 out of 5.
