We are proud to introduce the newest member of the Suavecito family, Kilian Martin! Here is Kilian's back story and how he got into skating:
When Kilian Martin was 10 years old, he joined a gymnastics school in Madrid, Spain. At this same time, he also found a passion for surfing, however, with the ocean over 6 hours away, being able to practice every day was a near impossibility. Surrounded by cement and asphalt, he realized he could take up skateboarding to help his surfing abilities. So, at the age of 16, he started to skate Mini-Ramps and Street. After a year of skateboarding, Kilian Martin discovered Freestyle Skateboarding after watching Powell Peralta’s Ban This skate video. He then realized that this style of skateboarding would allow him to utilize his gymnastics abilities but more importantly, expand his outlet of creativity. When he turned 21, he decided to visit California, where he set out on a journey to master his skateboarding abilities. Kilian grabbed many of his freestyle tricks and adapted them to street skateboarding. Since then, he has developed his own unique style, and a level of technicality that has set him in a class of his very own.
So now that you have read a bit of his story check out this short clip of him tearing through the streets of Santa Ana! We will attach a link to his website below.
