Daniel Grant is one of the most talented wake specialists on the planet, but his "Island Blessings" will blow your mind.

"The Turtle" is fast. Grant was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, but his dual British-Thai nationality explains his exotic style in both wakeboard and wakeskate divisions.

With Rip Curl, Daniel learned that the search is everything. So, what better place to show off his magnificent stunts than in one of many Bali's ancient temples. A winch is all he needs.

But there's more. The young wakeboarding champion also visited and rode the Bali Wake Park. Watch him attack the multiple kickers and completing dangerous transfers over small islets.

The "Island Blessings" were shot at the start of the season. In the meantime, Grant won the "Best Wake Park Rider" trophy at the 2015 Wake Awards.
