Thick & Thin
Everything about this trip was either new, shocking, or weird enough to take 8 seasoned travelers out of their comfort zone for a solid 26 days. We've been doing this for 5 or 6 years, as a group, and I can honestly say this trip brought out the best or worst in all of us. We went from the most extreme heat possible, to straight-up east coast winter temperatures, all while trying to shoot as many photos and film as many clips as possible. I saw filming meltdowns, broken cameras, petty arguments, and annoyed teammates. I also saw reality checks, amazing demos, unbelievable riding, and my closest friends more motivated than ever, and prouder than ever, to represent Kink in one of the most foreign environments possible. I've never been able to say enough about the dynamic that the Kink team shares on the road, and that dynamic was stronger than ever in Asia. Good or bad, thick and thin, shit was unreal. Thanks again to everyone we met along the way, and of course to everyone at Kink for another life-changer.
