Penny Skateboards has signed skateboarding legend Christian Hosoi as a rider and ambassador for the brand. To commemorate the signing, Penny will debut Hosoi’s signature Nickel skateboard at the Agenda Trade Show which is currently occurring in Long Beach. With a professional skateboarding career spanning over three decades, the Hosoi Nickel will feature Hosoi’s “Rising Sun” innovative Penny Plastic Print detail on the underside of the Nickel shape, clear die-cut signature griptape, custom powder-coated 4-inch trucks, and exclusive red shielded Abec7 bearings wrapped in Penny’s 59mm signature black wheels. In speaking about linking with the brand Hosoi commented, “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. As the original, it exudes style and performance, and Ben’s aim in starting Penny to get more feet on skateboards really appealed to me and my own life in teaching my own kids to skate. For me, Penny’s about what I’m about, so it’s an honor to become an ambassador.” The Hosoi Nickel Signature model will officially release on April 1, 2013 at select retailers worldwide.
