It has been a slow weekend, so we figured it would be a good time to re-up Kriss Kyle‘s latest Red Bull video from Dubai! We’re not sure how much time and money went into making this one happen, but Kriss got access to water parks, skyscrapers and other landmarks all over Dubai where he stacked some amazing riding on some unique setups. Add in some awesome film work by Matty Lambert and you have a BMX video that you won’t want to pass up.
“Kriss Kyle lands incredible stunts on his BMX across Dubai’s most famous landmarks.
Home to the world’s tallest building the Burj Khalifa, Dubai is renowned for its breathtaking skyline. With stunning buildings, huge water parks and bustling souks, a place like this is the ultimate playground for thrill-seekers. Who would have thought that it’s also a BMXer’s dreamland? That’s what Kriss Kyle discovered when he had the opportunity of a lifetime to explore the city by bike, and land tricks you’ve never seen before. If you’ve watched the videos about the Burj Al Arab fireworks during the 2019 New Year, then expect even more fireworks here.
From cavemanning out of a helicopter onto the Burj Al Arab, to tricking it out on some of Dubai’s most famous landmarks, with barspins and all sorts of tricks you can imagine (and unimaginable) Kriss captured it all for our eyes to feed on.

There’s always something rad going on down in South Africa. Here’s a quick video from the BMX Tea Party jam that went down recently with some of the locals and a little help from Red Bull and Vans. The guys used a Coastin’ style ramp that they setup on a few different spots for some fun. Here’s a look at some of the action and good times that went down!

Here’s an interesting video Red Bull just dropped called the ABC’s of BMX where they discuss everything you need to know about BMX. This features footage from the team, along with some behind the scenes footage from training and riding sessions. The video is narrated by Sebastian Keep, which definitely makes this better. In this first part, the video covers everything from injuries to the lifestyle and traveling. It’s pretty basic, but it’s clear this series is more geared toward people that don’t ride BMX to help explain it a bit. Either way, it’s an interesting watch, so take a look.

Kostya Andreev and Irek Rizaev throw down on a crazy sand castle ramp setup in this video from Red Bull!
We have seen some crazy setups to ride over the years from Red Bull and they never fail to completely blow our minds on what is possible. The other week we got the Mirror Park video, now today we get a video featuring Kostya Andreev and Irek Rizaev throwing down on a frozen SAND CASTLE! Well, we’re not 100% sure what this thing is actually made of, but it looks like a sand castle and it seems to hold up well to the riding these guys throw down on it. Even with the cold temperatures, which were sure is how they held this all together, the guys were able to produce! This turned out damn good and it’s well worth a watch! Check it out right now and make sure you give it a share!
“Two of Russia’s best BMXers head to the freezing northwest of their country to embark on a unique skatepark build.
Four hundred tons of sand and water, frozen to almost concrete-levels of hardness. This was the material chosen to construct a giant skatepark castle on the shores of Lake Ladoga in Northwest Russia. The unusual playground was the brainchild of Kostya Andreev and Irek Rizaev.
Everyone is familiar with building sand castles; fragile structures unable to withstand the returning tide. Irek and Kostya decided to build a bigger-size castle suitable for BMX riding.
It took the pair quite a while to choose exactly the right location for building the park. Eventually, they selected the northern part of Lake Ladoga where they found a beach with a beautiful view and access to the water. In the winter, the air temperature is incredibly low – perfect for ensuring the sustainability of the build.
Only two ingredients were used for constructing the park: sand and water.
At -30 Degrees Celsius, frozen sand was very similar to concrete in its properties and provided excellent grip. Irek and Kostya rode several truly frosty sessions and managed to demonstrate a totally stunning performance” – Red Bull
Check out how Red Bull made the Mirror Park video featuring Courage Adams and Paul Tholen!
Last week Red Bull released that CRAZY Mirror Park video featuring Courage Adams and Paul Tholen riding a crazy park covered in mirrors and reflective material. If you saw the video, you were probably wondering how they made the video and how it all came together. Now, we get a look at how the project came together. What might surprise you, is that this took SIX MONTHS to figure out and make happen. The end result was absolutely amazing. Check it!
“Six months of planning, design and then execution: Mirror Park was filmed over just two days in a facility near Pamplona in Spain.
Watch the secrets of Mirror Park being revealed in our behind the scenes above.
The project was made possible with the help of a number of partners. BAAM, a company specialised in ramp manufacturing, put in the initial ground work. Spanish-based brand management firm Lateral Thinking took care of the artistic direction of the project, and co-produced the entire project with Malgenio Films.
For some of the filming a Segway was used. This bit of solo transport was particularly good for capturing transition runs of the video’s stars, Courage Adams and Paul Thölen.
There was some post-production work needed, with a mirrored roof having to be created. Bearing in mind that the mirrors gathered all the info of what was happening during filming, things like cameras, spotlight lighting and people had to be removed from the mirror’s reflections in order to get a clean clip.” – Red Bull
