Frankie Villani is the type of skater that you could watch day in /day out because he is having more fun than any of us doing it.  When we decided to put together Vol. 1 of The Dirt there was no question that we wanted to feature Frankie in the first issue.  Franky's creativity extends far beyond his skateboard, take a look at some of his sketches that he sent us.


Frankie has supported us form the day we started and we are very hyped to consider him family.  We called Franky and asked him some quick questions for your enjoyment.
