Nigel Sylvester

Nigel Sylvester is from Queens. Feeeel me? He was on WeThePeople, got to Eurotrip with those dudes, then got picked up by MirraCo (and Nike 6.0, what). Last week I got to see him snap BOTH axles on a 180 bar-to-bar-back flyout gone wrong, and this week he managed to snap BOTH sides of a 3/8" front Primo axle simultaneously—the wheel fell out but his pegs stayed on. Looked like he had peg bosses. He's currently testing a prototype of his soon-to-come MirraCo signature joint (the current one's based on the Black Pearl, and let's just say there'll be a lot of changes). Anyway, he missed a good chunk of this summer due to a broken scaphoid bone in his wrist, and I had this shot from before then. Long icepick to bar out. Yeah, b.
