Today’s Nasty comes courtesy of Charlie Crumlish and features Erik Elstran going to war for the first clip in his split video with Jake Seeley, which is definitely worth a re-watch. He ends up tangled in the rail, dips his feet into the nearby pond but ultimately comes through with the move as the sun went down.
Here’s a new one that Craig Passero filmed for us featuring his friend Marvin tearing it up all over Long Island. Craig’s barspins have apparently worn off on Marvin a bit since he does a ton of good ones in here in some pretty unique situations.
Here we have some brutal footage of 2 skaters beating the shit out of a security guard at famed skate spot, LOVE Park which we’ve seen in BMX video as recently as Fiending back in June. Skating and riding has been banned at LOVE for years (I got a ticket there in 2003) and the vast majority of riders and skaters seem to have gotten the memo at some point within the past 2 decades: if you’re going to ride or skate at LOVE, be ready to take off as soon as you see a cop. Here we have 2 dumbasses who aren’t old enough to buy a lottery ticket fucking shit up for everybody by beating the shit out of a park ranger when they could have just skated off like everybody else.
At first the Nasty Mondayz thing was just a way to tie all the crash clips we were getting submitted together for handy search purposes. But I decided that instead we would just change the second TCU YouTube channel into a Nasty Mondayz channel and expand the Nasty concept to include pulled clips as well. I think there’s something to be said for the concept of a YouTube channel full of single clips that include b roll that adds context and sort of gives you a feel for what it was like being there. We’re still going to post some crashes but we’re going to be posting a lot more like this one of Jordan Dwan doing a crazy ledge hop filming for his Guy Stuff section which you can watch here.
Cult and Vans have some new shoes dropping together, check out this dope little video promoting them featuring some riding from Dakota, Bobby Simmons, Timmy Theus and Trey Jones. Everybody kills it but you’ve got to see this tailwhip that Timmy does at the end…
“Continuing our collaboration with VANS, we were psyched to get some of the CREW together and film a quick edit in support of the shoe release…We hit some spots in Cali and had a blast doing so…Check out the ERA PRO and CHUKKA MID CULT COLORWAYS…This time around the technology has been stepped up with the DURACAP process, basically these last super long and can handle it…MORE SOON…”
So apparently there’s another BMX video game in the works, perhaps inspired by the upcoming BMX: The Game project. To be honest this one looks like shit but it’s something, right? Go here for more info.
It’s been a little while since we heard some news about BMX: The Game but today we’ve got a new video featuring their “bike editor” feature. Here’s what they had to tell me about what’s coming up for the game:
“This August and September we will show a lot of great news that we’re working on: sneak peek release, bike editor mobile edition, sneak peek mobile edition, news about the consoles versions, collaborations and agreements with BMX companies and others related to BMX, office for Barspin Studios and new team members – development and business -, support for virtual reality, and approach to the games industry. We’re really excited for all this”
Here’s Ride’s video of the finals from this year’s Mongoose jam:
“From beginning to end, this four minute recap of the Street Jam at the Mongoose Jam is pretty damn unreal. Opening up with Corey Martinez’s never been done half cab to ice down a rail, a front flip off a ledge, a tooth hanger-to-over ice, tailwhip to ice down a rail, more than a few wild backwards grinds, and ending with Peraza’s super clean 540 cab down a set of stairs.
“During today’s Mongoose Jam Street Competition, pros and amateurs ripped at the Block, the Plaza, and the Outdoor Street course at Camp Woodward. Riders landed tricks in all three areas, but the coolest feature was Mongoose’s custom “M” logo ramp. The Street Comp was the second event in the Mongoose Jam, and the teams showed no signs of slowing down.
Campers cheered on the teams as everyone gathered in the designated Street Comp zones each offering riders a chance to show off a variety of skills. Every team had three runs in each section – the Block, the Plaza and the Outdoor Street course. Highlights included Team Illingworth’s Corey Martinez nailing a never-been-seen-before half-cab to icepick grind at the Plaza; Team McCann’s Kyle Baldock landing a perfect front flip off an upledge at the Block; and Team Peraza’s Jeremiah Smith’s technical combinations in the Outdoor Street course, to put Team Peraza in first.
Team Wallace’s Matt Ray, an amateur camper last year, took first place in Street showcasing incredible consistency and never falling off his bike. Additionally, Mongoose team captain Kevin Peraza, out of his usual Park environment, pulled off some wild lines and placed third.
Tomorrow, Mongoose Jam wraps up with the Dirt Competition, where it will be decided which team takes home the largest portion of the $50,000 prize purse. In addition, each amateur will take home a custom, American-made Mongoose frame as well as a brand new GoPro 3+.

This just got submitted to the OSS Facebook page. This is Stevie and Brandon riding together back when they were 12 or 13. Pretty hilarious. Watch both of their OSS web videos from a few months ago after the jump. Continue reading →
“Today we present you with a street mix that we put together most in Colorado with a few ABQ clips peppered in. The boys all kill it in this with near misses on smashing pedestrians to hitting moving cars in the streets. Give it a watch and thanks to all the homies who rode and killed it for the camera.
The WTP team ended up in Vienna for just a couple days but still managed to make some magic happen thanks to the ridiculous skillz of Dillon Lloyd, Moritz Nussbaumer and Ed Zunda. The thing that Dillon does at 2:45 is absolutely fucked and I’m scared to call it a half cab nollie downside whip but that’s roughly what it appears to be.
Despite attending the premiere, I still haven’t managed to see more than a minute or two of Make It Happen but apparently I’ll be able to right that wrong later this week:
“Hopefully you’ve been able to get hold of a Make It Happen book and DVD over the last few months, but if not the project will be released online next week, with the book being uploaded on Tuesday 12th August and the full length video on Thursday the 15th of August. The video features Greg Illingworth, Gary Young, Ben Hennon, Kevin Kalkoff, Tammy McCarley, Paul Ryan, Maxime Charveron, Matthias Dandois, Ed Zunda, Josh Harrington, Matt Preist and Brian Kachinsky.”
Pretty hyped to announce that we are now carrying DUB in the USA! I’ve always been a fan of the brand but over the course of the past year I’ve really gotten to know Jack, Jay, Lacey and the rest of the crew and just from talking to them it became clear to me that they needed someone to push their shit over the pond. They have one of the dopest brands in BMX and one of the best teams as well. We have a lot of cool stuff in the works for the next year and this is just the start. Hit up http://www.thecomeup.bigcartel.com for all your #lolweed needs.
Oh and you can pick up all the new Dub stuff from our headquarters over here at the OSS store in LA located at 127 east 5th st.
Cult and Vans have a shoe coming out so they had a jam last week and paid for people to get into the Vans skatepark. A lot of people came through and killed it but some highlights include Dakota Roche, Max Vu and Timmy Theus. Shout out to John Hicks for putting this together!
We’d been talking about doing an Instagram Slam with the Chicago locals since the winter broke this past spring, but due to travel/injuries/work, we weren’t able to link up with everyone until mid-summer. We were able to meet up on a windy but beautiful Chicago summer day and had a lot of laughs getting this one done. Brian Kachinsky, Timmy Theus, Kevin Porter, Trent McDaniel all take some requests and some of Chitown’s up and comers get some shine time as well. Watch the guys bust out some normal and not so normal moves above and give ‘em all a follow on Instagram if you aren’t already.

Brandon Begin blew a lot of minds with his first OSS video a few months ago. While he was filming that video with John Hicks we were also going out and filming with our camera whenever John wasn’t around. This is the video featuring all that footage plus some other stuff we got done soon after his OSS video came out. Shout out to Merritt for making this happen, follow @merrittbmx and @brandonbegin on Instagram.
I knew this girl in high school named Caitlin Hickey. She used to get prank calls all the time from comedic geniuses wielding ingenious one liners such as “do you have a hickey?” and “can I give you a hickey”. As I watched this video, I wondered to myself… has Jordan ever received similar prank calls? Maybe that’s why he’s so good at feebling rails. He just sits at home answering dozens of prank calls a day and just bottles up all that rage and takes it out on handrails. That’s my theory anyway.
Paul Pike filmed this out in Newfoundland. They were planning on making a full Summer edit but he sprained his ankle on the last clip so they decided to put these clips out and start fresh for the fall when he healed up. Shout out to Charlie Crumlish for helping hook this premiere up too.
