Landyachtz Dinghy

Length: 28.5″
Width: 8.6″
Wheelbase: 14.6″

The Landyachtz Dinghy is a great option if you want something to do ollies/flip tricks with. It’s much easier to do tricks on this than on a penny board since it’s a wooden deck and won’t flex.

Lander La

Length: 26.5″
Width: 9″
Wheelbase: 13″

The Lander La cruiser is made from recycled fishing nets and glass fibers. Not only are you helping the environment, but you’re getting a highly functional cruiser skateboard.

Width: 9”
Wheelbase: 14.75-16”

The Loaded Ballona is a high-quality mini cruiser by Loaded Boards. Its deck is flat compared to the others on this list. Functional for the casual cruiser that’s not looking to do any tricks.

Hamboards Biscuit

Length: 24″
Width: 14″
Wheelbase: 15″

The Hamboards Biscuit is the widest on this list. If you want to go for casual cruises, it’s a fun option.
