Nigel Sylvester x Gatorade | Go All Day

Although he’s had more “day in the life” videos than almost any athlete out there, when you have a life like Nigel Sylvester, there’s never a shortage of material for another. Nigel’s latest “Go All Day” from Gatorade is by far the raddest yet. From shredding mad spots in the city to an impromptu photo shoot at 21 Mercer with none other than Mel D. Cole to a late night wile out at BOB, Nigel gets it in. If you are from NY you’ll recognize mad people in this video, if you’re not you’ll appreciate it for its sick cinematography and banger backing track from Donnis.

13th Witness x Nigel Sylvester | Escape From Tomorrow

12 November 2009, 11.44 | Posted in bmx, lifestyle, videos | No comments »

Between 6.0, Gatorade, and the Maestro, Nigel Sylvester has been getting more internet face time than Kanye. But you can’t say the kid doesn’t deserve it. Next up is this “Day in the Life” project Nigel did with 13th Witness, who told us how it came together, “I was shooting with the Maestro for his final NYC episode of “Maestro Knows” and Maestro called Nigel to come hang out. We were taking pictures and fucking around and we exchanged info. I had been wanting to make something action packed so I said ‘fuck that, I need to make a video with this guy.’ We met up, shot it and there it is.” Expect more to be bubblin from both of these talented dudes.

Rad Collector - Nigel Sylvester x Nike 6.0 Chocolate Mavrk
When you’re on fire, you’re on fire. In more Nigel Sylvester news, the Queens ripper is dropping an exclusive new Mavrk-Mid next Monday with Dan’s Comp. Dubbed as “Chocolate, but for your feet,” Nigel hooked this kick up from top to bottom with black on black detailing, stingray leather swooshes in alternating gold and black, and an ice gel toe bumper with quilted purple lining, what?! Not bananas enough – the right foot has a toe box sewn in ostrich leather while the left is pure croc. Seriously. Good luck getting a pair of these. More looks after the jump.
