Normally I drop this on Sunday night, but once again it slipped my mind after a long day. Either way, I’ve got this weeks list of the top videos from the past week together for you to enjoy. Check out videos featuring the likes of Ben Wallace, Andrew Casteneda, Mike Gray, Drew Bezanson, Mike “Hucker Clark, Rob Wise, Vasya Lukyanenko, Broc Raiford, Brian Yeagle, Morgan Wade, Martyn Tambling, Disco Stu and more. Check out all 11 videos after the jump!
This week I’m giving the top spot to BSD for part one of their “Living For The City” series. I have a feeling all 3 of the videos will be making this weekly list, but we’ll have to wait for those to drop. Don’t skip this one.

I’m sure every single one of you reading this wouldn’t mind being a professional BMX rider. Ben Wallace gives you a look into what it’s like living the good life for this new Monster edit. Also real stoked on how good of a job Richard Forne did with this.
“Ben Wallace is not a golfer but he does have a fun life. After being nominated for the Nora Cup dirt rider of the year 2012 he took a flight out to the states to hang out with friends, ride a little and just soak up the sun. Here’s an insight into Ben’s life.
Andrew Casteneda is damn good. Team him up with filmer and editor, Veesh and you have yourself a double threat. This new edit for Primo is the outcome of these two working together.
“The family has been busy this year. Here is Andrew Castaneda slaying spots. Sick edit shot by none other then the man Veesh!”
Mike Gray has been on fire for such a long time. This video consisting of leftover footage that Justen Soule didn’t use for the section they submitted for The Hunt is a good indicator of Mike’s level.
“There were quite a few clips leftover from The Hunt DVD that never got the chance to see the light of day for one reason or another. Instead of wasting them, we’ve put them together for this all new, Hunt leftovers edit.
To see more, watch The Hunt Gold Rush. Now available on iTunes.

What happens when you drop Drew Bezanson, Mike “Hucker” Clark and Rob Wise on a small island? Big things. Check out what these guys got into on their recent trip to Hawaii thanks to Skullcandy.
“What is Island Fever?
When you think of the infamous North Shore of Oahu, most people immediately think of the greatest surfing on our planet. We decided to send Drew Bezanson, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Rob Wise, and legendary BMX Filmer, Justin Kosman, to the Skullcandy House on the North Shore. Together they set off on an exploratory adventure to see what Hawaii had to offer in the way of BMX spots. The result was nothing short of spectacular. Huge roof drops, incredible street spots all surrounded by the lush vegetation of the island. Island Fever is a what we called this edit, documenting the madness that ensued over a five day period on the island of Oahu.” – Skullcandy
If there was a list of the craziest spots in the world, I have a feeling this would be towards the top of that list. Don’t look down.
“Following his spectacular ride along the roof of a skyscraper in Kiev in 2010, BMX star Vasya Lukyanenko recently took things to the next level as he headed for the Ukrainian National Space Centre in Yevpatoria to demonstrate his bike skills on the huge radar dishes.
He made his way to the National Spacecraft Control and Testing Centre outside the city of Yevpatoria on the Ukraine’s eastern coast for a BMX session unlike any other ever seen before.” – Red Bull
Broc Raiford is another one of those riders who had their career really take off this past year for obvious reasons. This new promo for his signature bars from Volume is loaded with some damn good riding.
“Back in September and fresh off our Tea & Biscuits UK Tour, Broc and I headed to Salt Lake City to hang out with Tate for a few days and stack some clips for this as well as Tate’s Drifter V2 promo. As you can see, Broc (or as most of the team now calls him, “Little Puppy”) really put his 18 year old puppy power to use obtaining a whole grip of footage on all the amazing spots SLC, & Pocatello, Idaho had to offer.

I’m a big fan of Andy Maguire and his videos. When the Least Most dropped his latest full-length video, I knew I was in for a good time before I even hit play. 24 minutes and 49 seconds of goodness. Enjoy.

I’m not going to lie, this has to be one of the best “Day in the Life” videos to ever drop…
“Join dsab superstar Disco Stu as he takes you through a hilarious day in his less than average life. Awesome park and street riding as always from Disco, plus more than a few twists n turns along the way.
This is NOT your average, snore fest BMX day in the life. Try it and see…

They say good things take time. Martyn Tambling’s new Verde edit might have taken a year to make, it was well worth it in the end.
“Originally we hoped to shoot this edit in around three months but this proved easier said then done; finding days where Martyn was free for exploring spots proved rather difficult in between being a husband, father, site foreman and TM for the Verde UK Team amongst other side projects he does. This alongside the atrocious British weather meant that this web edit took us a little over a year to complete.
Martyn likes to keep off the beaten track and seems to get a kick out of sneaking around in places we shouldn’t be; often a days riding can be as much about the adventuring and overcoming obstacles as it can be about the riding itself. This project saw us visit boat yards, drop slides, full pipes, reservoirs and more and some spots proved successful while others proved less productive. However every location included a sense of exploration and discovery and a hope of finding that hidden gem, hopefully this is just the start of many more adventures to come!

I honestly didn’t realize how stacked the S-One team was until I saw this edit. Such a good mix of riders who kill it. Can’t go wrong wit hitting the play button on this one.
