Are you new to Defgrip? Just started checking the site over the last year or 2? Well, time to catch up on some sweet original content our crew have produced. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, there’s no harm in revisiting these again. Either way, we appreciate ya.
Harrison Boyce and Andrew McMullen have sat down with some interesting BMX & NON-BMX characters for video interviews starting back in 2008. These interviews were pretty different for BMX at the time and I think they did a good job at connecting you with these people (I didn’t produce them so I can say that, ha). Subjects include Ruben Alcantara, Cory Nastazio (probably the most talked about Original), Greyboy, The History of Oakley and much much much more…

Nigel Sylvester just released his second signature watch with G-Shock and to kick off the launch, Nigel put together a quick tour through Europe, properly titled #Trippinthrueurope. The plan was to start in Tallinn Estonia at Simple Session, then head to London for a few days, from London to Paris, then spend the last weekend in Warsaw, Poland.
The trip consisted of Nigel, his manager Hawaii Mike and myself. The whole thing went by super fast and I’m not sure if we slept for more than three hours each night. We really tried to cram as much in as possible and even though we barely had any time to ride, we had a really great time. Huge thanks to everyone we got to meet up with on the trip and hopefully I’ll get to go back to all of these cities again and spend more time exploring and seeing everyone.
The photos in the gallery are in no particular order. I was filming most of the time and I didn’t get to shoot as many photos as I would have liked, but I did manage to capture a few moments. I shot the most in Warsaw when we spent the day walking around the city. It’s so crazy to me that the entire city of Warsaw was completely destroyed in World War II. So tragic.
Hope you enjoy the photos and keep an eye out for a video from the trip. Big thanks to Nigel and Hawaii Mike for such a great trip!
To celebrate the release of Nigel Sylvester’s new G-Shock watch he teamed up with his long time sponsor Animal to produce a limited run of sprockets. Keep reading to check out more photos and info on how you can win one, as well as info about his Europe tour that will kick off at Simple Sessions this weekend. I’m going to be cruising around with Nigel on the tour, so follow me and Nigel on instagram for updates from the trip!

This past year I had the opportunity to work on the Get Sylvester series with Nigel Sylvester. We put together some great videos and got the chance to travel to a bunch of amazing places. Even though I was filming most of the time, I was able to snap a few photos along the way and put together this gallery of photos. Most of them are from our trips to Barcelona and the Dominican Republic. Keep reading to check them out!
Last month, I spent 10 days in the Dominican Republic with Nigel to film for a G-Shock edit as well as getting some footage for Get Sylvester. While I’m editing the Get Sylvester episode as I type this, the G-Shock edit just dropped! With riding footage filmed by John Hicks, I’m really stoked on how this edit turned out. Always love a nice solid riding video from Nigel. Check it!
