“Skateboarding is absurd and this is the way we see it”
When we asked Absurd Skateboards’ main man Kirill Korobkov to explain the idea behind the Russian brand’s latest full length video that’s the answer we got. I guess his point is that it’s open to interpretation… That being said, whether or not you manage to make sense of the rather conceptual editing there’s one thing that everyone can appreciate and that’s the rawness of the skateboarding it features. It has everything from underexposed spots to unpredictable tricks and a crew that seems completely unaffected by the ever so popular (yet slightly contrived) “aesthetics over effort” mentality.
