Colby Franz at Volcom Skatepark

Colby Franz

Colby began skateboarding at the tender age of 6 1/2 years old and as with any child, skateboarding was just a past time event at first.

By age 7, his story begins: Colby took to the sport with a passion. It was apparent he had a plan right from the beginning. Learning new skateboarding tricks came fairly easy for Colby. However, learning them wasn't enough. He had to master everyone of them. It wasn't good enough just to hang at the local skatepark and be a part of the mix. He wanted to hang with the local Pro's and do what they were doing.

He now had a mission...to stand out among the crowd and prove his worthiness to the ones he looked up to, his idols. Through a dedication that goes far beyond passion, Colby is well on his way to making this become reality. Colby has skated with several of the best known Pro skaters of today (and yesterday): Jay Adams, Omar Hassan, Tony Trujillo, Sandro Dias, Bucky Lasek, Bob Burnquest, Rune Glifberg, Ryan Sheckler, Dave Reul, Duane Peters, Jeff Grosso, Lester Kasai, Pedro Barros, Steve Steadham and Andy MacDonald... Just to name a few.

And if that is not enough, Colby has participated in the Coastal Carnage in Huntington Beach for the past two years, the Maloof Money Cup of Orange County (invited to take practice runs with several of the Pros), several local annual events; Basic Bowl, Downey Skate Contest, 1st annual SLAM JAM at Volcom outdoor and several exhibitions throughout all of Southern California including the ASR and YMCA Encinitas.

With his career clearly in front of him, Colby is destined to become a top contender in the professional world of skateboarding and just got this video taped 2 days ago and that already went viral.

What's next for Colby Franz?

Colby has many projects in the works including media work in commercials and print ads. Many potential sponsors have been paying close attention to Colby and watch his developments on a regular basis. All invites are welcomed and entertained on an equal basis. Currently Colby is supported by Black Flys Sunglasses, Konformity Clothing, Viking Helmets, Kalistr Clothing and a few soon to be mentioned. For all the latest info and most current pictures and event updates, you can also check Colby out on his website or on Facebook:
