  • This is so much more than skateboarding, the first video is my favourite for the video editing in slow motion, it has great flow but I can’t quite touch on the word for how it makes me feel, it’s almost like ballet with a sort of power about it. Martin is an incredible skater and an artist himself, they way he moves and uses his surroundings, it’s so free. With some of the moves he pulls, combined with the slow motion, he is almost turned into a moving sculpture, I’d love to see someone make something like that, a whole area filled with sculptures of skaters pulling different moves.

    truth be told, i was getting pretty excited as soon as i recognised park guell in the photograph.. but woah! and the music is magic aaahh! and all of the giant WTF’s kindof reminded me of the way they shoot martial arts own giant WTF’s, anyway.. amazing yeah.

  • absolutely brilliant !

  • diogo

  • Kilian Martin is an amazing skater. I have had the oppurtunity several times to photograph him. All amazing films from Brett Novak.
