Lewis Jones is one of the most down to earth people you will meet - relaxed, approachable and humble. He is from Raglan, New Zealand - famous for its waves, but Lewis has never been surfing - he found his passion in the two-wheeled variety.
With a bit of space at his dad's property, he set to building some jumps, which over years of hard work progressed his tricks and style he's locally so well known for. He is now based in Hamilton (about an hours drive from Rotorua) and spends his days working as a plastic welder, but seizes any opportunity to go riding, including most lunch breaks!
Over summer, we caught up with Lewis at his local turf, followed up with Gorge Road - Queenstown, Rotoz - New Plymouth, Farm Jam and Crankworx Rotorua.
Lewis took out 4th at this year's Jam & best style a couple of years back - can you see why?
Rotoz Dirt Jump Park is shadowed by Mt Taranaki, which is almost as impressive as the work of art Scott Bedford and the locals boys have created. Stay tuned for an edit we're dropping soon on this place soon!
Crankworx Rotorua saw Lewis take part in the Dual Speed & Style, Whip Off and Deep Summer Photo Challenge - The first two didn't go as planned, but the latter saw Lewis & photographer Simeon Patience
take out best photo with this banger shot high above Rotorua - Simeon also took out the judges Best in Show
