Organic Growth - By The Coastal Crew
Crazy video- Coastal crew's vids have always been next level. You can't predict what they'll come up and they never disappoint. I also knew I had heard this song on PB before: (which is also sick BTW)

@skarsy: Also if VOD was meant to show you things you may not have already seen then why do they choose films as VOD after putting them on the top of the Global homepage, Movies for you Monday, posting it on their instagram feed etc? 9/10 films I have seen before they have been made VOD.

@skarsy: I wasn't suggesting that vids with the highest view count should get VOD- that's only an indication of how well marketed a bike film has been. I think they should divide the views by the number of faves to give a 'hit rate' as such. With such a wide audience on PB these days it makes sense to use their feedback more and build them into the site. We had the entire 4 part series of this each as VOD- probably a combined fave count of less than 100. PB just isn't close to what it used to be.

comparing this with Hollywood type films is crazy- the sales figures are in another league. I look at it like this.... if I buy Deadpool I'll watch it twice, maybe 3 times ever. I must have watched all of my riding films 20-25 times at least. Take the £10 you would spend on 2 pints in the pub, use £8 to buy this and use the other £2 to buy a couple of tinnies to drink at home while watching it.

PB has a view count and a fave count. Why not use these stats to let PB users select VOD? Yeah this vid is ok but it's not particularly exciting, interesting or different in any way- as shown by the number of faves. Currently both VOD and POD are based solely on the opinion of a few people that are deeply embedded within the hugely cliquey bike industry.

Drew Bezanson's Learning Curve - Episode 1
Hes always seemed to pick the bigger drops ad transfers and I think that's why a lot of MTBers like him too. The joyride edit had my jaw on the keyboard. Hope he hangs around for a bit to give it a go over a few seasons- not gonna be easy to go straight to the top of such a talented group of riders.

Amazing vid, love the roll shots with the drone, lovely cable work and gimbal shots. You can tell a lot of work went into making this. Class.

Video of the Month - June 2016
Yeah I know it's crazy... Anyone would think he picks the VODs himself. All a bit weird these days with so many of the other vids being uploaded to other sites. Pure Darkness 3, RAW 100 & Andreu's latest vid for starters. Thats what I'll remember June for, and the farmer edit from Caldwell because it's undeniably rad.
