Not many people have heard of Daniel Fleury. He isn’t really part of a riding scene and he doesn’t seem overly concerned with upping his Instagram rep. If you expected his feed to be a run of extreme bike shots, you’d be surprised to find a view of the world based on natural beauty with a series of images that present a creative view on everyday things like foliage, ocean and…sky.

Daniel grew up in circumstances more likely to guide him into team sports than inspire an endeavor in bikes, but something drew him into the woods where he spent the better part of two years hand building a massive cluster of jumps known as ‘Laguna’. A line with features that reach for the treetops and a coastal view that delivers breathtaking sunsets daily.

Rupert Walker filmed Laguna a couple years back and was impressed with the results of Daniel’s hard work and solitary dedication not only as a builder/rider but as a creative person with a unique view on things. It was a project that inspired a follow-up. Welcome to: For The Sky.

 Superb. Never heard of Dan Fleury but nice to see a guy that rips hard for himself and not for Facebook likes. Makes you wonder how may unknown local heros are out there. Props to them all.
