Remember how Skip felt in Lords of Dogtown after seeing those kids skating empty swimming pools for the first time? He knew everything would change after that, and that’s exactly how we feel watching Kilian Martin’s approach to the sport/art in A Skate Regeneration.
Even those who wouldn’t list skate films as one of their interests will find something to appreciate here; switching from one skateboard to another via a tree? That’s in there. Handstand kickflip? He does a few. Murphy’s skill phenomenal, as is Novak’s knack for capturing it beautifully.
