Freestyle Now has been rolling out the rad for over 30 years now. What started with three young BMX freestyle riders wanting to show off the growing popularity of BMX freestyle has now 30 years later molded into a Australian wide enterprise with squad members around Australia and the world. Covering not only just bmx but scooter and skateboard with entertaining stunt show performances, skatepark coaching workshops, well managed skatepark competitions and motivational school presentations. Freestyle Now started in late 1986 with our first shows taking place in December of 1986. It was not until March of 1987 that Freestyle Now did its first paid performance in front of thousands of people at the Fremantle Speed Classic. The event was an old time car drag race held at the Fremantle port passenger terminal. Freestyle Now performed 3 bmx stunt shows on that day. Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis was joined with the original squad members Georg Molnar and Brad Dyer for the first 2 shows. In the 3rd show Todd Triebler who was announcing the first 2 shows took over from Georg as he had taken a bar to the stomach in show 2. Georg then went on to announce the 3rd show. The shows were mainly a flatland show but we did have a kick ramp, they call them flat banks now. BMX riding and the Freestyle Now stunt shows have progressed a vast amount in the past 30 years.

We were lucky enough to have good friend Andrew Romano come and film the shows. 30 years later we have taken the video footage off VHS and it is now uploaded to the web for the world to see our past history of radness. Over the years the quality of the footage has diminished but we hope you will enjoy the videos of some of the first Freestyle Now stunt shows.
