 No doubt he's fast, but he has got a very awkward style and dead sailors alot of the jumps. Just looks sketch in general.
  • + 4
 And before some genius jumps in and says it, I realize he's faster than me and that if you're pushing it/on the edge you're going to look a bit sketch.
  • + 2
 nice video, but the D90 have just a fixed focus during the filming?
  • + 2
 People this good make me feel truely terrible and really put me in my place. But i'm definately inspired to go to this place now, just looks incredible!

 to be honest i think hes fast but i dont think hes in control alot of the time just seems loose all the time, too loose for the speed maybe bike set up ?!?!?!
  • + 5
 yeah he looses it all the time ... you idiot if you see him in real life he is pinned to f*ck and is 99% of the time in control what excactly do you mean ?? think before you make dickheadish remarks please mate!!
  • + 4
 haha well im sorry if i havnt seen him in real life, its just from this video he looks in control, loose but in control.... i ment if he went a bit faster he would loose it and be out of control... also u would also know, if your in control all the time while riding downhill ur not going fast enuf he just looked although he was pushing too hard, drifting ect looses time he mite look pinned and probly is but the video shows different. DICK!

 I like it are you hand held for the whole thing. you know how it changes the brightness all the time when you pan anywhere. well that is called exposure compensation and your need to lock it, whell set it up so you can press it and it locks it for that shot. it is in the Fn. read all of this it will help you.

peace bro keep it up
hope it helps.

ow ya plus you can hold down the button that is small and round and has a plus minus on it right by the place where you push ther button to take a picture. you will see that small cirlce button hold it down while you are shooting in movie mode and roll the wheels. that is how you change how bright it is. or you can hold down the button that looks like a play back button and do the same action.

 might be something to do with his rear shock rebound set up if there is something wrong. i think it looks super smooth though, pushing the bike to the limit eh. you see the pros doing those scandinavian flicks before corners but on softer peety soil, not stoney stuff as much.
  • + 3
 or you can change the f stop to like 22 and shot where things look a lot cleaner. and not so much is out of focus. plus if you shot your videos. in vivid. I am sure you know what I mean. you will have better and more colors; to fix later. it is hard but with the nikon you have to focus. manuely. Also you can upscale the d90 becasue it really shoots in 800p and you can put it in a 1080p time line with and upscaler and a re-sizer to get rid of stair stepping and it looks way better. my crankworks video from this year was all shoot on a nikon d90 by kai wendt, knoxrider. I was able to get killer slow mo, out of the d90 doing that. first to all my footage. the app for you video editor is called, too much too soon. by mattis sandstorm. props on him for making it,
  • + 5
 To be Honest He looked completely chilled and in-control Great style dude, Hopefully u take it to the races!
  • + 1
 Gah, I compiled a playlist a few months ago of songs im using in a film next year, and what order im using them in etc. So far about 3 or 4 have been used in vods since i made the list =\ gotta be quick in this industry i guess!
  • + 0
 Im loving the shallow depth of field through the camera lens by the way! That constantly changing snappy exposure is a tad annoying though, any way you can lock it?
  • - 1
 Pinning Railing And Loose ! just f**king going..this guy will be racing in the WC series sooon ..Fu*k that was fast ..Great Bike And Rider Awesome Vid
  • + 1
 he jumps real weerd

  • + 8
 very smooth riding, but music is shitty for me Razz
  • + 6
 Nice turns Wink I like the way you take them - tires seems to be so grippy Smile
Good video too ;p
  • + 3
 yeh, those flicks before the berms were sick, and well chosen by going for HSD as it's the fastest/ longest track there, and just soooo flowey
  • + 1
 sick vid
  • + 2
 the pics from this shoot where after thoughts. i am shooting stills only with him in a week or so, they will be something great im sure of it ! have to be if its this guy on his local tracks. so keep an eye on my site over the next few weeks.
  • + 1
 you people that say he is sketch and throwing dead sailors are smoking crack. this kid has flow and pumps everything on the trail to keep speed. to me he seems in control i dont know what you guys are looking at. good video props!
  • + 1
 exactly matee Smile
  • + 5
 VOD. good work as ever milky. luke is rapid!
  • + 5
 best one yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 4
 really nice edit there! got a good chance of being VOD and the rider seemed pinned with a good style on the bike
  • + 3
 man absolutely a pinner, donĀ“t get me wrong jacob, but in the last time I started to like your videos more than your pics! Great work, keep it up mate!
  • + 1
 Amazing riding, so flowy and so full of determination. Great VID great rider!!!

The only thing IMAO that could be fixed for the next vid, is that Jacob is getting this cool "rider doesn't matter nonchalant camera moves" like Clay Porter does, but in some moments it's a bit non consequent, and its strictly focused on rider with moving the camera around. I believe that if you move it around, just do it in one direction because the guy's riding speaks for itself - BUT! I know it's bloody hard Wink GREAT VID!
  • + 4
 Sick riding, filming, everything.. VOD
  • + 4
 amazin video m8 so god VOD

 I've met Luke a couple times (admiring his style, knowing I'll never be as good!)- Such a pleasant young man, he is so modest in all he does - top guy, great video. Awesome run too, I used to love it!
  • + 1
 dude stop dising the camrea its not even suposed to be a video camrea its a still shot im amazed i need to get a new editing program did u edit with final cut?
  • + 2
 Awesome edit! Couldn't fault that, always prefer pure full-on riding over effects saturated tomfoolery

  • + 1
 Great vid, great ridin'. You can definitely see the limitations of the D90 though. I have the same camera and its amazing but not so smooth while panning.
  • + 1
 Awesome riding, good to see you are VOD. I subbed you on You[Tube] I think that all your videos are cool, but this isn't the best. Fast riding too
  • + 3
 great filming and editing and Luke Ball is one fast rider
  • + 4
 Amazing VOD
  • + 3
 I bet he used to ride mx.he is so aggressive on a bike.awesome vid !!!!!
  • + 6
 hes never rid mx in his life hes just straight out pinned
  • + 1
 I don't see how you could call that pinned he had difficulties riding in a straight line without being all over the place. He should definitely be less nervous on his bike and loosen up because he makes it look a lot harder than it really is. I do have to agree though that he does excel in corners, like he rapes those berms.
  • - 1
 dunno what ur on bout m8 but its pinned and he can and does ride in a straight line
  • + 1
 I find that most of the time people who try too hard to get the bike to move around obstacles in an unnecessarily exaggerated fashion, such as in this case, lose a lot of momentum and get highly annoying to watch. Sure I can get that it's fun, but you won't be going very far in the racing scene doing that. Put this kid in some real technical steeps and such, his talent will become much more apparent.

 yeh but m8 we live in the bottom of england and there is no hills at all the only desent hill is gawton
