New School/Old School Cool

Posted by Rick | February 11th, 2011 | Filed under Outdoor Sport, Who We Are

Skateboarding has always been a controversial sport around here, not in a “skateboarding is not a crime” way, but from a brand perspective. Basically, there are some people who feel like skating isn’t a “Nau sport” and others who do. A couple weeks ago we came across a video that we all agreed upon—Killian Martin: A Skate Regeneration. No doubt, his style is highly influenced by ‘80s freestyle skating, along with his background as a gymnast and his obsession with surfing. Killian’s also getting a lot of love in the fashion blog world for a video that shows a totally different take on street skating, where he’s decked out in ‘50s-style clothing and pulling off his crazy acrobatic moves to a soundtrack by Ricky Nelson. We’ve always appreciated athletes who push boundaries, and if this style proves to be a new direction for skate culture, we’re all for it.
