William Corey Duffel (born April 11, 1984) known as Corey Duffel, is a professional skateboarder from Walnut Creek, California.[1]

Duffel's sponsors include Foundation Skateboards, Osiris Shoes, Venture Trucks, Mob Grip, Pig Wheels, Metro Skateboard Shop, Armourdillo, CCS magazine, Skullcandy headphones, and Powell Swiss Bearings.[2]

Fashion and skate style[edit]

Corey is straight edge, and is well-known for dressing in a distinctive 1970s punk fashion.[3]

He is known for fast-pace, performing tricks on big gaps, rails, stairs, big wallrides and other large obstacles (for example, the freeway gap in Foundation Skateboard's 2007 "Cataclysmic Abyss" video). His skating stance is Goofy. Duffel rides for his original sponsor, Metro, in his hometown.[citation needed]

Duffel began skateboarding at age ten, and turned pro at age eighteen.

Charity[edit]

Duffel works with mentor Michael Davis' Music Is Revolution Foundation, raising money to support music education in public schools. Davis and Duffel collaborated on fashion and skate items for Foundation.

Interview controversy[edit]

In a June 2000 interview for Big Brother Magazine, Corey Duffel referred to fellow professional skateboarder Stevie Williams as a "trashy nigger." This statement, along with negative comments about homosexuals resulted in Duffel being dropped by all of his skateboard sponsors.[4]
