The Penny Skateboards “Nickel”

Hey there everyone… check out Shop employee Spencer Morgan Knuttila scooting around on his Penny Nickel! These things are insanely fun! It is 27 inches long, 7.5 inches wide, comes with 4 inch trucks and super smooth 59mm 78a wheels. These things are perfect for cruising around with friends, going to the store, chillin’ in a park, or just all around doing  your thang! The Penny Nickel is just big enough to pull off some fun tricks and handle a bit bigger hills! You won’t regret picking one of these puppies up!

Check out some of the photos from Spencer’s Instagram of him playing around on his Penny Nickel! It is a retro type board so we figured retro type images would suit it best!

The Penny Nickel in all it's glory! Nice and fresh!

Rippin and dippin in Penny Nickel cruise mode!

Anthony Bittner (Tony B): Our newest shop employee

This is how our day started out as we got off of work. We had a little session in the parking lot. Anthony has some springs on him so he popped over this trash can pretty easy, he is like a foot over it. Having some standard skating abilities are a must if you want to work here at Daddies. Anthony has some good work ethic and skates well as well so we’re stoked on him.

Anthony over the rail!

You check out those wheels? 78a softies! the Satori Brent Atchley P-Town Players… lord knows portland does not have the best streets, its nice to have a smooth rolling set for when you are just mashing around down or if you aren’t in the parks.

Anthony staying as far away from the rail as possible

Same trick, slightly different shot!

Well, it wasn’t a land but it is still awesome! We’ve found ourselves an awesome new staff member! Stoked for more photo shoots with Anthony!

Juan Mercado!

Im not sure if many people know but we have been working on an ambassador program to  help spread the stoke. We are trying to hook up up and coming riders from all over the place. Here is one of our homies, Juan Mercado doing his thang, getting all sorts of fun stuff in the mix! Check him out in this fun little edit.

In this he is shredding a Landyachtz Wolfshark, DBS abec 7 bearings, Caliber Trucks, and some Abec 11 flashbacks!

We needed Photos….

Pete Benda with the Sector 9 Joel Tudor Mini

So we needed to get some photos so Pete and I went out after work and got out jimmy jam on. We set up a Sector 9 Joel Tudor Mini board with some Randal 150’s and some Abec 11/Sublime 62mm 100a Fernando Yuppie Powerslides. It was actually pretty freaking amazing.

I realized that the Sector 9 Joel Tudor Mini Board is probably more of a park board rather than a street board, seeing as how it doesn’t have much concave… and well it isn’t a popsicle shaped deck either.  It has a nice pointed nose and a crazy square-pointy tail thing. Man its crazy fun though. But regardless of shape and size we have fun on this little thing here.

This wasn't even close to a land.

I was doing this little wall ride/slappy thing to 5-0 on here and Pete got a picture of this happening at one point. There is no way I was landing this seeing as how I wasn’t trying to do this at all but it opened up my mind to some tricks I want to get now. Like a slappy 5-0 to no-comply? Or a No-comply slappy to 5-0… the possibilities are endless!

This is more like it

Slappy type tricks are just fun. I like riding on these big Abec 11 wheels cause when you drop off the wheel and onto the hanger when doing a trick you can really feel it. The best part about this little session Pete and I had was that this ledge is so small and dorky but we had such a fun time messing around on it. Thats what I love about skating… doing stupid stuff, having a good time, and not being too concerned with everything being all perfect and in formation. I have to give some of the credit to this board set up though. That Joel Tudor deck is so sick! Sector 9 seriously did an awesome job on that one.

Then we found this amazing bank. It is the length of a tennis court and it is seriously phenomenal. We were skating it in pitch black though and so when the flashes went off you were basically left blinded. It was pretty sketchy but fun none the less!

One thing besides the board that I was stoked on was that the wheels we were skating were actually very durable. Usually power sliding on tennis courts is a surefire way to get flat spots. I was definitely doing power slides and still no flat spots on these Abec 11/Sublime Powerslides!

Another Day of Skating!

Check it out everyone. We have once again found ourselves up on some street skateboards and went and slayed some local spots.
