Golden Bay skatepark competition – Round 17 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series

twitterlinkedinmail

Round 17 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series took place at the Golden Bay skatepark. With the sun out the competitors were treated to some fine weather. Its is good to see the amount of progress the competitors have over the past year with many riders getting bigger and better tricks over the time. It was also good to see Chris Wells and Jamie Ferreo make the journey from Geraldton just for the skatepark competition. Chris took a heavy fall in round 2 and was feeling that one for a few days. We hope to see more of them in 2017. At all of the Freestyle Now skatepark competitions there are three classes for competitors to enter, beginners (younger and still learning), intermediates (competitors with some good skills) and the open class (consistent and dials tricks) in the three disciplines scooter, skateboard and bmx. There is also a girls class to help encourage more girls to enter. A big thank you to all the competitors who rolled out the rad at the Golden Bay skatepark competition. We would like to thank the City of Rockingham as well as our supporters, Colony bmxSacrifice scooters. Round 18 takes place at the new Esperance skatepark on the 4th December.

Willetton skatepark competition – Round 16 freestyle now western Australian skatepark competition series

twitterlinkedinmail

Round 16 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series took place at the Willetton skatepark. Willetton is a regular competition location with normally two competitions taking place each year. The weather conditions were a bit his a miss leading up to the skatepark competition and come competition day it was sunny and cloudy with chances of rain. It was agreed that the competition was to take place. The competitors were told that it might be only one run due to the rain. Once the skatepark competition got underway as normal everything went smoothly, till it rain and help up the proceedings till the park dried out. With the park dry it was back into it, until it rained once again, on this occasion it was more rain than what was really wanted. There was no way the park was going to dry out from that amount of rain so it was deemed to call it for the day. The only competitors that did not get to compete were the bmx class, so to work out their placing their names were drawn out of a hat. A big thank you to all the competitors who rolled out the rad at the Willetton skatepark competition. We would like to thank the City of Canning as well as our supporters, Colony bmxSacrifice scooters and 4 skateboard Co
Round 17 takes place at Golden Bay skatepark on the 22nd October. Be sure to check our coming events page for all the latest information.

Freestyle Now Waroona High School Assembly – stunt show

twitterlinkedinmail

Recently Freestyle Now was invited to the Waroona High School for a school presentation. The focus behind the school presentation is to demonstrate and to educate what radness is all about but to also provide a motivational presentation to inspire others with a mix of awesome BMX, scooter and skateboard skills. The week that Freestyle Now visited Waroona High School it was in the middle of mental health week and the “R U OK” program was in full swing. Freestyle Now set up the jump box and squad members Shaun Jarvis and Lee Kirkman were joined by reserves squad member Matt Adkins and good friend Morgan Ray to roll out the rad.
For the assembly presentation the younger students from the Waroona Primacy School also attended so it was super loud with lots of people screaming.  After the performance the primary students went back to class and our founder of Freestyle Now Shaun Jarvis gave a motivational presentation to the high school students on his past experience about “R U OK” and how it is important to have something in your life that you can turn to that is creative and constructive. Lee Kirkman also shared some of his past experiences to help motivate and inspire the students to make better choices in life. Matt Adkins and Morgan Ray also answered some questions from the students during some question time when the students got to hang out with the Freestyle Now squad. R U OK is an important question to ask your friends, as sometime they are feeling the weight of problems and issues and a simple gesture of asking “R U OK” can be all they need to know you care and are willing to listen. If you feel you need assistance with any mental health issues get in touch with lifeline. If you would like this type school presentation at your school please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements.
