A Q&A With Nic Hilton
What about the products are you most psyched on and how do they help you?
The products that I am most stoked on would have to be Slytech Noshock Hip pads. The hip pads are thick enough to really counteract some big crashes, but thin and tight enough to fit underneath my jeans without screaming “I’m wearing hip pads.”
Gnarliest or scariest experience riding?
The scariest thing that I’ve done personally, is, the first time I tried to double backflip the Mega Ramp. I thought because the ramp was so big I could not pull so hard. I was most definitely wrong. When I was done with one flip I spotted the landing with a total OH S*** moment. I landed completely upside down. It’s in one of my old videos on youtube called “70 seconds of Nic Hilton” if anyone wants to see it.
What's the perfect day of riding to you?
To me, the perfect day of shredding is really about having a good time. Having fun, regardless of the tricks that get accomplished, is what its all about.
Favorite place to ride?
Woodward West is my local spot so it is definitely one of my favorites, but in Italy at my Friend Diego’s house is probably my favorite. So much fun when I am there.
