Freestyle Now squad member Jason Parker York Jam America trip

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now squad member Jason Parker recently fulfilled one of his long dreams and headed over to America to attend the York Jam in Pennsylvania in America. Jason has been an important member to Freestyle Now since he was enlisted on the squad in 1999 with performing bmx stunt shows around the nation and being heavily involved in the production of Behind the Bars with Shaun Jarvis. Jason sent through some good words about his trip and a few snaps so read on

“Well I guess ever since I started riding freestyle BMX way back in 1995, I came across a video called “Wheelies” That video had, and still has some of the best flatland riding caught on film. Ever since seeing that video, I have wanted to go to York Pennsylvania to ride at the annual event called ‘York Jam’.Earlier this year, while I was on Facebook, I saw an advertisement for the “25th anniversary of York Jam”. I decided just by seeing that ad, that if I was rostered off work, I was going! It was that easy. I looked up my roster and checked that I could go! All that was stopping it, was a decision of “was it worth it”? That was easy to decide. I had always dreamt of going to meet the best riders from the world, the riders who made flatland what it is now! So I said this is it, the Jam has rolled for 25 years, if I miss this one they may not have another! It was the easiest decision I have ever made. So next I was booking the flights and accommodation, car hire etc. Then I thought I would see if anyone wanted to come along. I ended up getting my friend Simon to join, he was stoked!

Simon and I had started riding together back in 1995. He knew the video and the people we were heading to go and hang out with. It was game on! We were booked and ready to go, next I received the worst news from Simon, “man I have broken my leg and torn an ACL and Ligament too”. Oh no way, I was like “so I guess you can’t go”? Simon was like “hell no, I’m going”! So despite the major setback Simon pushed through the pain barrier and discomfort and made it along for the ride.

Photos by Simon Johnston

We left Perth flying via Sydney and then flew onto Los Angeles. We saw Santa Monica Beach, Hollywood, and Huntington Beach. As fate would have it, when we left Huntington Beach Simon noticed a rider in the car park. I was like “No way! That looks like Gabe Weed”! We decided to go see who it was, Yep it sure was Gabe Weed, he was just about to have a ride. We had a yarn and rode some flatland for a bit. Simon and I could not believe it, what is the chance of meeting one of the best flatland riders like that. We then drove down to Las Vegas in a Ford Mustang. That is a must if you are ever going to go see Las Vegas, Simon drove most of the way. We went to Hoover dam then arrived at Los Vegas. After we were in Vegas for a few days we headed to the East coast landing at JFK airport, New York. We had made it to the big apple AKA New York. We did the tourist thing and saw Brooklyn Bridge, Empire state building, and the Statue of Liberty. We also ate the best Pizza ever!  NY is not my scene that’s for sure but the Pizza is so good. We got out of NY and headed to the place we had been waiting to ride since we started riding. The drive was awesome, we saw so much. Once we made it to York we got on the “Buffalo wings” and did a wall mart visit. Simon was loving it! He wanted to get a bike and ride at the jam.

So Friday 11th Sep 2015 the Pre jam day arrived. We headed out to find the spots that were on the advertisement. No one was there yet. We decided to do a Harley Davidson tour while we waited for the jam to start. The place is heaps cool. Interesting fact that Australia is the second biggest purchasers of Harley Davidson other than the US. So about 3.00pm I get a message from Brett Downs on Facebook, Saying “Let me know when you want to go ride”! So I replied “I’m at the Hidden Spot now”! So I was doing a manual and a car pulled up. It was Brett he was like” You want to come ride, with Kevin and me at the Pit”? I was like “Yeah that would be sweet”. So Simon and I followed Brett and we meet up with Chad, Ivan, Terry and Kevin. It was so cool to see Mr Jones ride in person. He cranked up a heap of speed put one foot over the bars and did the longest no handed nose wheelie I had ever seen! EPIC was about as good a word I can think of to describe it. The man is KING! I could not believe how lucky we were, to be able to hang out with these guys. The typical BMX crew, who I had never meet before, but felt like I had known them all of my life! So after hanging with the crew, we headed back to the Hidden spot and started to meet some of the people who also made the long journey to York P.A. Riders from all over the US and Canada had made the effort to be at the 25 year jam. It was so cool to be apart off. We rode until about 8.00pm then headed out with everyone!

The day had come and after 3 months with no rain in York, the only thing that could ruin travelling over 18000 Km’s was RAIN! Yep it sure did “It pissed down all day”! But in typical flatland style we had plan B. Lucky the locals knew of the best spot in York for this 25 year jam to push on. We had a whole multilevel car park all to ourselves. Well unless the local authorities were to show up! Everyone headed, to go ride in the car park out of the rain, It was awesome I think at least 150 riders made it for this year’s jam. Also we had six girls show up to throw down some flat action, they were all awesome!!  The rest were “two tired”. No that was just a real bad joke! Mark Eaton was cranking tunes all day it was like being in the video “Wheelies” but it was real life. LOL some awesome riding was done and heaps of tricks were pulled. After a full day of flatland, we headed out yet again. We made heaps of new riding friends for life. After a huge night with Lincoln and Matt, everybody reunited and jammed again at the George st spot on Sunday. It was awesome getting to meet hero’s you never think you will ever get to meet in your entire life. So many good riders and the scene was like when I saw “Wheelies”. Thanks to Diggs and everyone who organized York jam. Simon and I left the next day we had 28 hrs of flights and 2 days of travel ahead of us. And then straight back to work for me.

For anyone who has a wish to or thought of an event that you have always wanted to attend, just go for it and make it happen, you will be so happy you made the effort.
As the saying goes Freestyle Now…….. Before it’s too late. Ride on!”

It’s a large building with some rad riding spots. A short flatland session took place and some clips were taken. The results are in the video. Look outside of the box you live in and explore new grounds, you will be amazed and what you will see.

Freestyle Now new recruits squad member – Jack Carwardine

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now would like to welcome new recruits squad member Jack Carwardine. Freestyle Now has introduced a new programme to help the younger crew come up the ranks and help them understand what sponsorship is all about. Every young radster must start somewhere and that is what The Recruits is all about. Younger shredders who show the potential to roll out the rad, being inclusive, show the potential to be good role models and the ability to progress up the ladder of radness, one day could become a full Freestyle Now squad member. Jack Carwardine will be promoting Freestyle Now to the masses and in turn Freestyle Now will be helping Jack understand how a sponsorship works.

Jack has been involved in competing in many of the Freestyle Now skatepark competitions over the past few years as well as attending many of the Freestyle Now skatepark workshop session. This has been a great platform for Freestyle Now to get to know Jack and see how he interacts with others and get to know him. Freestyle Now gets lots of videos and contacts on “can you sponsor me”. Videos only show the persons riding and not their character or persona, this is something that is just as important as the skills ability
So many young shredders say they want to be sponsored but none really understand what then means. Sponsorship is a two way deal, the rider promotes the brand, and the brand helps the rider. Too many young guns think that they just get product and that’s it, they don’t understand how the sponsorship treadmill works. For Freestyle Now, the recruit’s squad is the chance to help out young shredders but also to help them educate others what sponsorship is all about. Welcome to the squad Jack stoked to have you rolling out the rad.

Welcome Dez Maarsen – Freestyle Now squad member

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now would like to welcome Dez Maarsen from the Netherlands to the squad. Dez brings his world class bmx flatland riding to the squad, with his recent 6th placing in the 2015 BMX Flatland World Circuit. In the past year Dez has followed the circuit to Flatark in Kobe Japan and placed 11th, Real Spin City in Montreal Canada placing 3rd and to Voodoo Jam in Louisiana America where he placed 3rd. His determination to ride is a major driving force in his placings and this is evident in his riding. Fast and aggressive combos with lots of style.

Freestyle now Dez Maarsen at Flatark final Photo yuriochan11

Dez Maarsen at Flatark 2015 where he placed 11th in the open class.

Dez Maarsen comes from a country where there are more bikes than people, the Netherlands, so it’s no wonder he started riding bmx. With no local skateparks to start riding at, like in Australia and other countries, flatland was the obvious choice. Going to one of the big international contests, Flatground, and seeing the best riders in the world was what set Dez on his flatland bmx riding career. Some of Dez Maarsen’s other career highlights have been in 2010 when Dez went on Holland’s Got Talent and made it to the semi-finals performing live for 1.8 million viewers. In 2012 Dez got an invitation to participate in the Red Bull Circle of Balance in Kyoto, Japan. Only 16 of the best riders in the world got an invite, this is a true indication of his determination and success in flatland. Dez’s drive in riding and willingness to get rad makes him a great asset to the Freestyle Now squad. We will be adding a squad profile page for Dez in the coming days.

Dez Maarsen took out the 3rd place at the 2015 Voodoo jam in  Louisiana.

To get some insight on Dez Maarsen joining Freestyle Now we asked Shaun Jarvis and Paul Chamberlain for some words

Shaun Jarvis (Freestyle Now founder and squad member) - “I first saw Dez at Flatlark in 2014. We were at Meriken Park and I saw this rider who had a style that blew me away, lots of flow and so consistent. He was quiet and articulate and just keen to ride and not sit around and chat to everyone. He rode well in the contest and we partied after the contest. Another year later I found myself again in Kobe for Flatark and again Dez Maarsen was there. Once again we were riding at Meriken Park before the contest and I was blown away with his riding and manner. Something that is important to being a Freestyle Now squad member. So come to the open class rounds and finals I’m standing with Paul Chamberlin on the side watching and Paul says to me that Dez doesn’t have a sponsor. I was speechless, one of the top riders in the world who has no support from companies to help with his riding, really!! I could not believe it. I knew that Paul had known Dez for sometime from the European contests that Paul had been to and I trust Paul’s judgment on character, it’s the same way that we put Tánh Gà on the squad from Vietnam. So I just said to Paul “we should put him on the squad” and Paul was just like “yeah man” so now the rest is history as they say. I said to Dez, that the main goal of Freestyle Now is to promote radness, he replied “sounds rad, lets promote radness”. Welcome to the squad”.

Paul Chamberlain (Freestyle Now squad member and friend of Dez)  - “I first saw Dez in 2004 in Germany. He was a tiny little Dutch kid who could do so many tricks. Those were good days, soooo many riders in the Netherlands at that time. I felt like it was easy to progress quickly with all those riders in Amsterdam. Lots of events going on. Yeah, it was a kind of golden era for flatland in Europe. Since then a lot of guys quit, or stopped going to events, then the events stopped. Blah blah blah. Now there are only a few riders in the Netherlands. Dez just kept going and going though. I mean, flatland is kind of all he has ever really wanted to do I think. He’s got so much passion and energy for it.
So, having said that, I was so surprised when I found out now, over 10 years later, that Dez didn’t have any sponsors. I was shocked. Completely shocked. He’s out there at all the events, travelling, placing pretty well amongst a bunch of guys who are all sponsored. So, here we are. Dez is on Freestyle Now. I can’t think of another rider more deserving of a little help. Welcome to the squad Dez!”

Freestyle now Dez Maarsen 2016 new BMX flatland bike

Freestyle Now hooked up Dez Maarsen with a bunch of the new Colony bmx flatland products for him to set up this new ride for 2016. Looking fresh.

Some words from Dez Marssen – “For me the most important part about going to a contest is that I get to hang out and ride with people that love flatland as much as I do! The best part for me from FlatArk was riding and hanging out at Meriken Park! There was an amazing vibe and flatland at its purist. Closing that weekend with Shuan and Paul offering to support me with Colony parts was pretty much the cherry on top! I’m super stoked to be starting 2016 with a brand new whip and to be joining the Freestyle Now squad! I’ll be definitely making a trip down under soon!”
