Nathan Sykes’s signature seat has been one of our most popular seats and it’s easy to see why.
We spent a few days with Nathan in the heat and came out the other side with some great content. Stoked on the photos we got like these two…
Nathan Sykes has some great footage in this really good video piece put together by Matt Cordova. Shot using Matt’s Super 8 film camera.
TJ Lavin fired out a cool interview with Nathan whilst he was also up in Vegas.
We caught up with Nathan recently to see what he’s been up to which you can read right here.
What up guys! Just wanted to send through an update on what I have been up to. Just got back from a week trip in Colorado doing shows with Team Soil. Had a really fun time riding and adventuring around Colorado. We drove from Huntington Beach to Long Mont. 1200 miles with the truck and trailer. Meet some rad people on the way and have many good memories.
Just got home last night and already excited for another trip.
Next week my signature color in the Tradition frame comes out in Metallic Red. Very stoked on that! Also I have a new signature seat that will be releasing also. Lot of good stuff and I’m excited for you guys to be able to get your hands on it!
Nathan Sykes gets in a fun session down at a classic LA ditch spot. For any video heads out there, this was shot on 120p for something a bit different for me.
Really cool video from the guys at 100% featuring Nathan Sykes along with friends Matt Cordova and Larry Edgar. Get at it…
The DIG crew caught up with Nathan for a few sessions at some Californian trails spots along with good friend Matt Cordova and the result is 3 minutes of effortless style and creative moves…
More trails goodness…
Hey guys summer is here and that means fun in the sun! This month I took a trip to Florida with my girlfriend for her sisters wedding. We drove from Southern California to Pensacola Florida and back in 12 days. Lots of miles across the United States, 3 rental cars later, 2 new tires and our 4500 mile trip there and back was a success. Was able to meet up with style cat Chad Osborn in Texas for a morning sesh at a really rad park close to were he and his family lives. Made for a nice break in between all the hours Aubri and I had been putting in on the road. On your way home we stopped at a few spots in Arizona that are a must go to. Antelope Canon and Horseshoe Bend.
After getting back from the trip I have been getting some riding in down a Bundy Trails. Great place to ride right now with the weather being really warm. The trees hold back some of the sun most the day so it’s been nice cruising laps down there.
And as of now I also just finished the first week of BMX Summer camp with Team Soil in New Port. Had a rad group of kids for our first week. Mike Hucker Clark and Ryan Brennan and myself along with Dylan Stark for a few days help kids learn basic BMX skills, from riding quarter pipes and learning to jump and gain bike control. It was great week on the beach with this young riders. Can’t wait for week two!
As always another month has come and pass, but so much has happened! Cooper was over in the States for a month and we had the chance to do a decent amount of riding and filming. Produced a few different projects that I’m excited to see the final out come of. Was able to ride a few spots in Southern California that I haven’t been to. Always nice to mix it up and get to ride new stuff.
One of the days Victor, Cooper and myself made it out to the Stay Strong compound. I knew that Stephen and the family were getting ready to move soon so I wanted to get out there to see Stephen before he left the States. Was a great day riding and hanging out and Stephen and the boys will be missed very much by all the guys out here in California.
Also been working on a fun Dig project with Chris that should be out in the next month. Always enjoy working with Chris. He makes me laugh most of the time so it makes for fun days out riding and filming. Stay on the look out for this one.
We have a new section to the site, above in the Navigation bar you will see a FEATURES tab which will now host a bunch of original content shot with the guys. It could be a road trip article, bike check or an interview with one of the guys. Basically anything we think of. First up is a photo feature from the trip to Nude bowl a few of us took. Check it out here.
