Minicruiser has become very popular over the years because it's easy, smart and fun to commute. Minicruiser is the overall term for small skateboards designed to cruise and transport. They are meant to be easy to carry on the bus or train, and of course not to fill up too much space in the classroom, for example. In the category minicruisers there are both plastic boards and boards made of real wood.

Minicruiser:

A mini-cruiser made of plastic is also called a pennyboard and is like a lighter version of a skateboard. The word penny originally originated from the brand name Penny Australia, which were made back in the 70's, but has gradually become a synonym for small plastic skateboards, regardless of the manufacturer. Penny boards are made in a big and small version, namely "Nickel" (Big Mom) 27 "and" Classic "22". A penny board is good for anyone who wants to start skating and who wants a light transportable board. The small version classic penny is ideal for young people, children and small-footed people. Penny Nickel (Big Mum) is a more stable board that is easier to keep the balance, making it more suitable for larger people, beginners and skaters who want a penny board reminiscent of the regular skateboard. A minicruiser made of wood is often bigger than the little penny classic. Grip tape is mounted on the deck, so you are sure to have a good grip on the deck. Because the tire is often slightly larger than pennyboard, the truck is also wide; also the wheels. This gives more stability and grip in the way, making it better to carve. These characteristics correspond exactly to the longboardets. Therefore, roughly speaking, a minicruiser made of wood is a light version of a longboard.
