Honored to have a full page feature in the new @digbmx Magazine Trails Issue. It’s nice to be able to share some of my thoughts and experience growing up in the start of the modern day BMX dirt jumping movement in NY.

This is the S&M Shield…. The back bone of the most core company in BMX since 1987. They have supported and sponsored the most bad ass motherfuckers in BMX for the last 28 years. No amount of money can buy your way into this brotherhood just like no amount of gold medals won can put this crest on your back… this is a badge of honor. This is real BMX. This symbolizes a lifetime of achievement and focus to the most punk rock mother F*cker that I’ve met, The Mad Dog, The ball breaker aka @moeller_chris the same guy that had a huge set of balls and threw the first ever bar spin on a BMX known at the time as the bus driver. Since 1987 many riders have worn this shield before me and after 2015 many will wear it after me… but none of them will wear it THE WAY I DO and with the amount of Pride I have for it…. My name is Darryl Nau and I am honored and proud to announce that I am sponsored by, supported by and ride my BMX for S & M Bikes.

This Brian Kaminski, he is one of the most inspiring people that I’ve ever met in my entire life. One year ago @brianJosephKay found out he had a stomach cancer and would need a surgery to remove his entire stomach… That’s right his entire stomach, so when he eats it goes from his throat to intestine. Just imagine the amount of mental stress, physical stress and life changes that would take on a person. For many it would be so easy to fall into a depression, letting your life and goals fall to the wayside… Well that’s not Brian…

I am proud to report that one year later he is not only #CancerFree but in that time returned to riding and surfing 6 weeks after his surgery, expanded his graphic / printing business, Rode and 360’d some of the Biggest BMX jumps in the US, Put in hundreds of digging hours at his local trails, has gotten his eating patterns under control and has a more positive attitude than ever!

I want to Thank You Brian for being a great friend, riding partner for over 15 years and one of my biggest inspirations. #BMX #BrianKaminski #DarrylNau #Boondocks #LIBMX
