Cal 7 Astronaut Popsicle Double Kicktail Skateboard
Hard to find someone who doesn’t love this board, which is something of a shout out to the old school of the 1970’s and 80’s with the popsicle shape and double kicktail. Besides it’s incredible look, it rides extremely smooth and handles the corners with ease. Buy it five different colors.
Rimable Maple Skateboard 31 Inch
Another terrific ‘first’ skateboard by Rimable, this one coming in three different designs, which tend to the more “metal” of beginning skaters. To Buy the Rimable Maple Skateboard.
Penny Classic Skateboard
This is the Caribbean design of the Penny Classic Board, which comes in 36 different colors, including the gorgeous sweet tooth design and the psychedelic indio tie dye.
The Boss Vintage Skateboard
Very similar to a penny board, but The Boss skateboard is for a bit more experienced skateboarders, as it’s more difficult to use than a longboard. My favorite color combination is the Superman, but it also has dragon and Easter Bunny.
