Nathan Blake is a trailbuilder and NF team rider on Vancouver's North Shore. With his trail bud Axel, Nathan is a regular on North Vancouver's rowdiest, slippiest trails, both on the bike and the tools.





Steep, slippy and rowdy, his trail creation Skid is a classic Nathan line - short, fast, steep and technical, hold on and hope for the best!

 I have a funny Nate story. A few years back I met some buddies at Seymour to do a shuttle. I show up and see the guys, high fives, whats up bro?! Yadda yadda. Nate is there too so I introduce myself. Anyway we all load up in my truck and drive up. Had a wicked ride even though I cracked my wheel on Salvation lol. Get to the bottom and Nate says bye, thanks for the shuttle etc. So he leaves and I ask my friend where he met him, my friend goes I thought he was with you?! LOL He poached our shuttle harder than an overcooked Eggs Benedict at a truck stop diner! Anyway sick riding bud!

 Trade you my Xbox and five games of your choice for the dog. If you want money, need to wait five birthdays as grandma gives me money every year.

 N8 is one of the nicest guys you'll meet in the woods on the shore. He's created many lines on the shore that add to the diversity of the trail network and have become rider favorites.

 I’m sure N8 is a good guy and has done a lot for you guys In the woods but don’t indirectly incriminate the guy. Some things are best left unfilmed or unspoken of. With the massive problem of new comers joining to the sport promoting rogue creations right now is touchy thing to do. Don’t doom your spots.

 @markbe: it's a short trail. Super steep (as usual looks mellower on camera) so by the time you're at the bottom that's enough to want a break anyway!

 Nice to see them pushing local gear, it’s just too bad you couldn’t get any if you tried.
