When it comes to Broc Raiford, we all know this dude’s riding and style are on another level.
He is ONE OF THE TOP BMX street riders out there, without a doubt.
Don’t get me wrong, Broc murders it in skateparks and trails, too.
I’m a massive fan!
Moreover, along with riding BMX professionally, Broc is also an avid tattoo collector, an artist and a very down-to-earth guy.

Best Broc Raiford Street BMX Videos
1. Source – The Distillery / Lock In
What does Broc do when he arrives at the Source BMX to film a video but forgets his bike? He builds his signature complete because it’s the exact copy of his actual bike. (No need to get used to it – he’s already used to it!)
The riding that went down is full of solid stunts that are butter smooth. Broc. Style!
But I really like the nose bonk to x-up followed by a tabletop over a sub rail – how cool is that?
BTW, Broc, how can you forget your bike?
2. Odyssey BMX – Strike
I was hungrily waiting for this one to drop the moment they announced it. Why? Because I knew it will be FIRE – but I didn’t know it’d be 5 minutes long (even better!).
Broc came out with another street masterpiece for Odyssey, and I cannot stop pressing the play button. I watched it a few times already, and I’ll do it some more just because it’s so good.
Broc does it all so smoothly, whether it’s a technical trick combo or a big setup.
So much goodness, it’s pointless listing down my FAVS because everything’s my fav. Enjoy!
3. 2021 X Games Real BMX clip
I don’t really know what to say about this. Extremely insane and EXTREMELY smooth. I really dig how Broc manages large drops. His landings are effortless.
His 2021 X Games Real BMX contest submission doesn’t start slow. Every clip could easily be a banger.
I’ve always been a fan of Broc Raiford’s riding. Every time he puts something new out, you know it will be mad and a MUST WATCH.
This one is no different, so go, hit play and enjoy. I’ll do it again because it’s just too good.
4. Sunday – 2022 Darkwave Authentic
Whatever Broc releases, you do one thing – you watch it! This short promo video is for his unbelievable signature 2022 Sunday Darkwave Authentic complete bike.
Do you know what’s special about this bike? It features the exact parts that Broc rides. Is this the best complete bike ever built? Maybe!
But first, enjoy yourself in a few hammer moves from Broc, hitting streets with his butter-smooth style. That 360 was MAD!
5. Broc’s USL Blow Up The Park submission
If you are down to watch some intense cement park shredding from a street rider like Broc, this one will do you well.
This is his 2020 submission to the Ultimate Shred League’s video content, “Blown Up The Park.”
He is all over the place in true Broc fashion, from pulling technical moves to going big on transitions.
However, the moment you are all waiting for is the fakie 540 barspin. Yes, that’s what he pulls for a banger and could not do it any cleaner.
Another combo I also dig is the 360 to feeble to hard 180 on a down ledge.
6. Broc’s Sunday Bikes Darkwave promo
For 2020, Broc’s signature Darkwave frame in matte dusk fade and matte raw needed a proper promotion.
Instead of filming something short, emphasizing the frame mainly, Broc and Sunday did something entirely different.
This is a full-blown part that will boggle your mind from start to finish.
From TECH stuff to BIG stuff, it’s all there for your viewing pleasure.
However, I must say that the 360 to feeble to hard 180 down that tiny ledge was my favorite.
Still, the ender is insane indeed. But the best part is still seeing Broc smiling all the time.
7. Broc Raiford welcome to Sunday pro
To celebrate the announcement of becoming the new Sunday pro rider, the king of pop decided to go all-in. This outstanding street video is jaw-dropping.
Whether it’s something older or something newer from Broc, he simply knows how to surprise.
There are definitely a few bangers in here with a 180 to double peg to full cab over the rail at the end that needs a couple of rewatches.
If someone deserves to be a pro, Broc Raiford sure is the one.
8. Broc gets super creative on sidewalks
Not every city or area has sidewalks like LA or Santa Ana; still, creativity plays a key role in creating a masterpiece.
As an artist, you know that Broc has an OPEN-MINDED approach to everything, and this Sunday video proves it right.
Broc and Zach Krejmas worked hard on this one, creating an end product that is just ridiculous. Broc set a few rules to follow when finding spots, and they succeed at it.
Enjoy watching Broc Raiford shredding and killing sidewalks.
How do your local sidewalk spots look like?
9. Broc Raiford Ride BMX’s “Pro Part”
To accompany his pro interview in the 206th issue of the Ride BMX magazine, here is a four-minute clip that will blow you away.
Broc and Zach traveled from Arizona to California to find tons of amazing spots that fit Broc’s riding ideally.
You can EXPECT anything from massive gaps to technical moves.
As versatile rider as Broc is, this timeless BMX video will excite you to go shredding any time.
Let’s face it, if you need motivation, a Broc clip will always do the trick, and that is a guarantee.
10. Headlights – Broc Raiford part
Insane tailwhip gaps, up rail ride to barspin to wallride and a super scary 360 gap over the fence, all this and more is in Headlights’ Broc section.
To be entirely candid with you, this is one of the parts that I watched God knows how many times already.
I like the intro, The filming, The song, THE EVERYTHING.
It is something that definitely deserves a second watch. Probably a third and a fourth one, too.
Also, if you are wondering about Broc’s artistic venture, here is a piece of it.
11. The alleyway creativity from Broc never disappoints
First was Passageways and then Walkways, the two Broc Raiford web edits by Odyssey BMX.
Instead of filming another clip, Broc and the Odyssey crew decided to do something different.
And it worked extremely well!
You will experience excellent street riding from Raiford all around Long Beach.
Along with all those wild truck drivers, whips and grinds, I must say that I like Broc’s footplants.
It is a trick you do not really see many riders do, which makes it unique.
12. Broc’s Disco Stew DVD section
Grinds, flairs on tiny objects, hop whips over handrails, footplants, wallrides, unique lines. Yes, that’s what’s up when it comes to Broc’s Disco Stew section.
However, I must say that toothpick to hop over barspin is the most insane move in here.
From the first clip to the last bunnyhop over the fence gap, your eyes will be as big as saucers.
This officially dropped back in September 2018, but it feels like they released it yesterday.
13. Signature Odyssey bar promotion
First and foremost, do you know what I love about this promo the most? That it has no music to it.
I simply love the idea of a no-song BMX web clip, and this is it.
And when it comes to Broc, you know that you will enjoy watching him shred, as he never disappoints.
The specs of his signature Odyssey BROC bars are: 9.8″ rise, 29″ wide, 10° backsweep and 2° upsweep. If you want to know what it feels like behind the bars of Broc’s ride, now you can.
Note: If you’d like to go slightly higher, our collection of the best 10 inch BMX bars will help you pick the right one.
14. Volume Bikes “The Finer Things” Part
Even though this might be pretty old and Broc Raiford does not ride for Volume Bikes anymore, it’s still golden.
To this day, you can watch and rewatch this part as many times as you want and never get bored.
Just think about it; this was released back in 2015, and it’s still so INSANELY good. Not to mention, Broc’s part is seven minutes of craziness.
Yes, that’s 7!
Sit tight; otherwise, all these killer moves will blow you away.
15. Video interview after the knee injury
As you know already, Broc went under the knife back in 2018, fixing his ACL and meniscus.
About six months later, Odyssey caught up with him to talk about life and how his recovery is doing.
In this cool little clip, Broc Raiford talks about living in Long Beach, riding with friends, talking about his knee injury (torn ACL and meniscus), his mental battle, art and more.
You will also get quite some clips of him riding the Volcom skatepark with Kris Fox.
It looks like riding bowls is a great transition back to riding from a torn ACL.
16. Learn how-to nose manual with Broc
As popular as nose manuals are these days, you might need to get some tips from pros themselves on how to do them more easily.
I learned it the hard way, but you will get some good insight from Broc Raiford in this Ride BMX video.
First and foremost, Broc advises you to start with hang 5s.
Then shift to pedal 5s to see how it feels leaning forward and get comfortable with it.
From then on, it’s just about practicing and finding that balance that will keep you nose manualling forever.
But do not get discouraged if it does not happen on your first session – because it will not.
Give it time, have fun and sooner rather than later, you will be doing multiple parking spaces on your front wheel.
17. This is how you do hop 360 the right way
There are tons of tricks that you can do out of a bunny hop. This is especially helpful for all riders who might not have that many awesome street spots around.
After you learn a decent bunnyhop and 180, only then do you progress to a 360. (Without the basics, you will not really come far.)
Especially not when it comes to hop 360s.
But Broc Raiford explains it all in great detail in this how-to video by Ride BMX.
One essential thing about the 360s is not forgetting to turn your head (!).
No matter how hard you try, it will not happen if you do not do it. Or it will look so SKETCHY that you better not do it.
Note: Videos are listed in no particular order, but I plan to add newer ones on top.
Bonus: Broc Raiford Bio
Born on March 1, 1994, Broc grew up in Destrehan, Louisiana.
To no one’s surprise, he already took off the training wheels at the age of two, and it seems everything took off from there.
Still, it was at the age of 18 when Raiford turned pro, but you know he was already killing it way before that.
A year later, Broc Raiford was already on the front cover of Ride BMX magazine.
It is no secret why many of the top brands want to work with Broc, offering him sponsorship for what he loves doing the most.
Want to see his latest setup? Don’t miss our collection of Broc’s bike checks.
Whoever knows anything about Broc Raiford, understands that he is a big guy who has some insanely high bunnyhop.
Not just that, but at 1.85m (he’s amongst the tallest at 6 feet), Broc also has an incredible style of riding.
From his BMX videos alone, you would never tell he is of that height, which is not too common amongst professional riders.
Even though a torn ACL kept Broc away from riding for about eight months in 2018, he returned STRONGER than ever.
