Blake has created some of the most unique and creative riding spots on the Isle Wight in recent years. Most notably his Beach segment captured the imaginations of many.

But since then nature has reclaimed the spot and little remains. Blakes recovery from a broken leg in 2014 left him with plenty of time to plan his next big project, in the winter he started work on "The Farm Project"

Eager to make each feature special he got to using every tool on the farm we could lay our hands on.

Blake was so stoked when we finally got down to shooting, several 4am starts later his excitement was some what dampened but he was still able to throw down some wild tricks throughout the home built slope style course.

The project was tough at times and we had to battle with some pretty crazy head winds but in the end all the efforts paid of and Blake has managed to build and ride his new summer time playground.

 Nico- your work has always been good but now it's getting ridiculous. I'm guessing a new cam before the last edit- slowmo, flat and clean- Sony? Crammed full with classy shots- no filler here.

 I've been working with a bloke who shoots on one which is how I guessed- Filming on my 700d next to him gave me serious envy issues! Took delivery of a GH4 today. That's going to have to do for now! Keep up the good work buddy- sounds corny but it's inspiring when to see how quickly you've progressed- it gives me a little faith- I'll always be many steps behind you but as long as I keep progressing too I'll be happy.
