In New Zeland, two families have been locked in a dispute that started in the 50’s. Depending from where you come from, these casual footwear are called differently; flip-flops are a common type of footwear. They are a thin rubber sole with two straps running in a Y shape from the sides of the foot to the gap between the big toe and all the other toes. They are usually used at the beach or outdoor. In India and Pakistan are immensely popular and called Hawaii chappal. In Australia they are commonly known as Thongs, in New Zeland are Jandals, whilst in UK and the USA as Flip-flops.

G’day mates! As I’ve been missing my country lately, sometime ago I’ve decided to take a ride through Rome’s flat streets and let my remembrances flow. As I took my red board, it came to my mind Penny. Penny from Australia is a brand of plastic skateboards. Have you ever heard of it before? Taking inspiration from the 70’s skateboards these boards seems more are a retro replica of the original sidewalk surfs. Penny’s boards are perfectly balanced for being micro cruisers, and give great performance while using them. These are mainly the two fundamental rules of choosing a skateboard: choosing a board for a good performance and having the expectation satisfied (there’s a third one too which is to know how to ride well..). Colors of Penny’s decks can be various: pink, purple, orange, blue, green, black, yellow and many more. You can also choose different colored sets of wheels. Summer is on, fun is out…what else? Ah yeah, are you ready to ride?
