This is the best video part that I’ve seen in a long time. On balance, given that you also get to watch a bunch of short episodes showing Jake’s approach to making it – it easily one of my overall favourites. Check it out – it’s so sick.
This style of riding is so good to watch – and given that it’s all backcountry, there’s a great mix of terrain and tricks.
- 1:13 – love the way he takes the line
- 3:29 – butter to cab 5 looks sick!
- 3:55 – this sequence is so smoothly put together, on both sides of the lens
You can see all of the 5 episodes from the “naturally” series on Jake’s Vimeo channel. They’re half documentary in style but still contain loads of good shredding. The duration of each episode ranges from 6 to 15 minutes or so.
They include Jake riding with his friends, his travels, injury and recovery and a rounded view of his backcountry trips/riding. I’d definitely recommend watching those, too. All together – they culminate in the video part above; that’s a lot of hard work and creativity. Awesome.
