Infamous skateboarding legend Christian Hosoi has signed with Penny Skateboards as an ambassador and more importantly as a rider for the nascent Australian company. “I wanted to work with Penny because after riding all the plastic boards on the market nothing felt as good under my feet as a Penny,” stated Hosoi, which carries a lot of weight coming from the three decade veteran. To celebrate their joining, Penny debuted Hosoi’s signature Nickel skateboard at the Agenda Trade Show last weekend in Long Beach. The Nickel will feature Hosoi’s favored “Rising Sun” Penny Plastic Print detail on the underside, plus clear die-cut signature griptape, custom powder-coated 4-inch trucks and exclusive red shielded Abec7 bearings wrapped in Penny’s 59mm black wheels. The Hosoi Nickel Signature model will officially release on April 1, 2013 at select retailers worldwide.
