Franky Villani Turns Pro For Primitive With New Video Part

Franky Villani’s talent as a skateboarder is undeniable. It was only a matter of time before he was promoted to Primitive’s professional ranks. His moment has arrived. Have a look at Franky’s new “Always on My Mind” video part above, and read what Paul Rodriguez has to say about Primitive’s latest pro below.

When we first announced Franky Villani on the Primitive Skate team as an am, Franky was already the quintessential modern skateboarder who could skate any spot that you took him to and have a lot of fun doing it. Since then, Franky’s skateboarding has continued to evolve in creativity and difficulty, and getting to know him better has been an awesome experience. It was only a matter of time before we had the honor of turning him pro. And I’m very pleased to say that this moment has come. So without further ado, it’s my great pleasure to welcome Franky Villani to Primitive Skateboarding’s professional ranks! – Paul Rodriguez

Congratulations, Franky!
