Heavy news. After leaving United at the beginning of the year, the prolific video part rider Nathan Williams and the traveling video brand Kink have joined up. Check the welcome to Kink video above and then stay for an “Honest Conversation” piece I shot with Nathan while he was here in SD filming…

“The rather heavy news dropped today that Nathan Williams is now riding for Kink BMX. I met up with Nathan and Kink’s resident filmer Darryl Tocco one morning to discuss his reasons for leaving United, what it’s been like riding for a new bike company for the first time in his pro career, and a few things in between. As I generally intend with these, they’re rather loose, not formatted and barely edited…just an actual conversation. My apologies for the sup-bar audio on Darryl and myself…the mic that was supposed to pick up our voices had a bunch of feedback on it and was pretty unusable.”
