When’s the last time you went barreling down a hill on a skateboard the size of a small sea bass? Never? Well, there’s always a first time and while you’re at it, why not get extra crazy and have your questionable friends dare you to go down that hill on a 3D printed skateboards?

Last year Simone Fontana posted his first concept for a 3D printed Penny board. Since then, he’s taken a few falls, learned a few things, probably inhaled more acrylonitrile styrene acrylate fumes than he needed to and has come up with the 3D Printed Penny Board V2. The model is made up of four individually printed parts, held together with some steel bars and those massive Penny Board trucks. Here he breaks down the board the process and materials used to create it.

According to another Thingiverse user who made it, it cost about $80 to make, including the standard 4″ Penny trucks. You so need this. Besides being stylish and practical, it’s 3D printed, which is like… a lot… of street cred… probably. You can download the files on Thingiverse.
