Penny Skateboard are made here in Australia and are really fun. They are very small and can carve really well. They are great for going down monster hills, not at full speed. But because they can carve from left to right so easily. When I saw one for the first time I thought no way that is practical. But my mate was carving down this massive hill where there was a sharp corner. I had to slow down and stop to get around the corner just as I was approaching it. Where as he was just cruising down left to right the whole way. They are around $150-$200 (Australian Currency) and I would buy one for a novelty. I am more into medium or longboards. But these things are so much fun.
Here is a picture to give you guys a general idea of what they are like (Yes they are made from plastic)
