Madrid skater Kilian Martin has garnered international acclaim for birthing his own lane within the maturing action sport, using both his background in adolescent gymnastics and often methodical artistic nature to form a fluidly-technical flatground skate style. Having collaborated previously in the past, filmmaker Brett Novak realigns with the Spanish skater to produce a video titled “Internal Departure” for his Short Skate Film series. In this video piece, Martin is positioned in a gallery-like space where his complex tricks look more like artistic expression than a casual sport for misfits. From balancing manuals on two boards to skating up art installations, Martin may be in his own lane, but his style certainly pays reverence to the inline sport’s early days of street competition.
