twitterlinkedinmail

Round 4 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series took place at the Collie skatepark located about 200kms south of Perth. It was great to see many competitors travel from Perth to attend the skatepark competition. Once again there was a good number of spectators on the day with lots of parental support, this is always good to have. The weather on the day was looking a bit doggy with rain forecasted.  As the last competitors was finishing up their run the rain started, timed perfect. At all of the Freestyle Now skatepark competition 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 girl’s class to help encourage more girls to enter. We would like to thank the Shire of Collie and our supporters, Colony bmxSacrifice scooters4 skateboard Co and Aikenhead skateboard shop. Round 6 of the 2017 series takes place at the Pinjarra skatepark on the 1st April. Be sure to check our coming events page for all the latest information.

Clockwise from top left – Karee Furneyvall has been competing in a few competitions lately and she is progressing well, 1st in the girls class – Jack Forman is a rad young kid who loves skateboarding. He took out the 2016 intermediate year end title in the F.N.W.A.S.S. and had now moved up to the open class. taking out the 1st place in Collie was well deserving – Jiordan Giacoppo has the power and the flow, another 1st place for him – Andres Lainevool is travelling in Australia from his home country of Estonia, it was great to have him roll out the rad in Collie. This tuck no hander gap transfer from the little quarter to the wedge in the foreground was just some of his radness, 1st place in bmx open.

Freestyle Now North West skatepark coaching sessions tour

twitterlinkedinmail

The Freestyle Now North West skatepark coaching sessions tour was five days of good times and great skatepark coaching sessions. In February Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Ben Thomas and Mitch Harris fly into Paraburdoo and got ready for the 4 hour drive to Onslow. Onslow had just had a fantastic new skatepark built and their opening day celebrations taking place and what better way to help celebrate than by having some skatepark coaching workshop sessions taking place.

Shaun Jarvis gets all tucked in as the storm passes Onslow.

Thursday afternoon was the first low key session with the official opening taking place on the Friday. During this session Freestyle Now hoisted a few mini competitions and fun activities and gave out some rad prizes. On the Saturday it was a long 5 hour drive inland to Tom Price to host another skatepark coaching workshop session. Again some mini competitions and fun activities took place and the participants at the skatepark all had a great time. On the Sunday Shaun, Ben and Mitch managed to do a bit of sightseeing to Karijini National Park before heading back to Paraburdoo to host another skatepark coaching workshop session. The north west can be forever changing and on this day the weather decided to change rapidly with a sudden downpour of rain and strong winds. It lasted for about 20 minutes but long enough to soak the skatepark, though it did dry out just as the session was ending. On the Monday the squad headed back to Perth for some relaxation time and to escape the heat. Till next time a big thank you to the Shire of Ashburton and to all the skatepark users that got to interact with Shaun, Ben and Mitch. Check the video below of the trip to know what took place and how the radness was rolled out.

DROUIN SKATEPARK COMPETITION

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle now was recently at the Ficifolia Festival in Drouin Victoria to manage a skatepark competition. Drouin is a town in the West Gippsland region about 90 kilometres east of Melbourne. The town is supposedly either named after a Frenchman who invented a chlorination process for the extraction of ore or an Aboriginal word meaning “north wind”. As at the 2011 census, Drouin had a population just under 9700 people. The Ficifolia Festival was a great event with a massive street parade taking place just before the skatepark competition got underway. Drouin Cycles put up a guaranteed $300 for the winner of the BMX open class, they also gave some rad prizes for the afternoon competition. There was only a short time frame to run the competition in the afternoon to fit within the Ficifolia Festival schedule but in true professional manner Freestyle Now got the competition done in time with great accolades from the competitors, festival organizers and parents. There was a great turnout from the town at the competition with one head count at 400 spectators.
At all of the Freestyle Now skatepark competition 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. We would like to thank the contest supporters McDonald’s Drouin, Drouin Cycles, Michael Robinson photography and the Committee of Drouin for their efforts in supporting such a rad event. Be sure to check our coming events page for all the latest event information on stunt shows, skatepark competitions and coaching sessions.

The day before the competition Freestyle Now hosted a bmx and scooter coaching jam session with lots and lots of great participation. Freestyle Now was in Esperance to host a skatepark competition, this was to be the last round , round 18 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series.

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.
