Today I’m happy to present you with what is no doubt one of the most astonishing video parts of all time. BMX has taken a turn for the tech over the past couple years and Ricany is one of the leaders of the pack. I loved the Stranger video the whole way through but the OSS store pretty much exploded when Sean’s part came on; it’s just that good.
This section has been re-edited from it’s original form due to music issues on YouTube.
It wasn’t easy, but I managed to condense the past fifteen months of my life into this 21-minute video.

Chijioke Okafo got a cool feature with Vice Canada where he talks about riding and BMX in general and pulls off this perfect Corey Martinez inspired uprail abubaca to fakie downrail at some indoor skatepark.
The man behind most of the Colony videos you watch put this out in 2013 with footage from the US and his neck of the woods, Austrailia. Cooper knows his way around a camera just as well as he can take on good rail setup. His technical yet simplistic style of riding is always easy on the eyes.
It’s no mystery that Matt Closson is a fucking G and if you have any questions just hit play and you’ll come to your senses over the next three minutes. As great as this is let it serve as a mental warmup for what you’ll see in his Blunted DVD section. Trust me, it’s going to be fucked up. Enjoy.
Let’s start by stating the obvious: the Deadline DVD was one of the most incredible BMX videos of all time. But despite that, it never really received an official online premiere. Well today we’ve got Augie’s section for you and who knows, maybe we’ll have a few more sections soon. Augie always come with the heat, so just in case you have somehow managed to not see this, tune in and enjoy.
When it comes to Michigan‘s Modern Times Skatepark Nick Bullen knows what it is and when the winters keep you inside you gotta ride something. You can tell Nick takes advantage of this pretty often. Check it to watch him completely shut the place down.
Brad Simms isn’t a stranger when it comes to travelling around the world and this new “Until-The-Wheels-Fall-Off-Tour” project he has going with filmer Dani Kralik sounds amazing! This video project will take them on a 30,000 mile long journey on the Pan-American highway from North to South! The’ve created a fund raising page for you to help them out realising this project and you can check it out here.
“Never before has an undertaking like this been done – a 30 thousand mile journey through the Americas: 18 countries in 8 months while filming 18 videos featuring BMX riders from the entire continent. This once-in-a-lifetime filming adventure is a project that no BMX rider or videographer has ever attempted to document. The plan is to complete this mission in 8 months, documenting the life and local culture of the riding communities in each location we visit. In traveling to this many different places and encountering distinct cultural environments; we are confident that the result will be more profound and gratifying than any other BMX chronicle ever made. Our hope is that these videos will inspire future generations to discover new opportunities, to develop trust and confidence in themselves, to stand up for their individual talents and wishes, and—finally—to make their dreams come true. This is exactly the influence that BMX has had in our lives, now we want to give back to the sport that’s given so much to us! So please, do be part of it as it will not only be a unique experience for us, but we promise it will be for you, too!”
After 3 weeks of traveling from the Tip to Tail of New Zealand, jaden Leeming, Mike ‘Hucker’ Clark, Kris Fox and Corey Bohan finally arrive at the end of their journey and here’s the final episode. They rode a bunch of awesome concrete park, meet up with Clint Millar and Kenny Raggett, shred the amazing Gorge Road jumps and more.
Here’s the video from the Colony Fresno jam that went down about a month ago at the Mosqueda park. Looks like everybody had a good time and some great riding went down. Featuring tons of locals as well as Jourdan Barba, Nathan Sykes, Chris Bracamonte and Paul ‘Polly’ Cooper.
The Cultfirst five years book release and photo show party went down last weekend with a turnout that looks great. Things like this really makes me wish I could get out to the west coast much easier. Check this for a quick look at the gallery and some clips from the crew and attendees on the ramps out back.
