Kilian Martin: Altered Route
If you happened to see any of Brett Novak’s videos of Kilian Martin skating (like this one shot in Barcelona), then you’ve probably already pressed play on this clip and you don’t need to read the following text. If not, well, let us be the first to tell you that every second spent watching Martin do his thing is time well wasted. In “Altered Route,” Novak follows the creative skater to an abandoned waterpark in the Mojave Desert, where he proceeds to shred everything in sight. Combine Martin’s phenomenal skills with eerie, nostalgic echoes of the funpark’s former glory, and you get a pretty special skate video.
