When Freestyle Now hosts a 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 City of Rockingham and our supporters, Colony bmxSacrifice scooters4 skateboard Co .

Freestyle Now skatepark etiquette presentation – video

twitterlinkedinmail

Shaun Jarvis gives a discussion at the Fremantle skatepark on skatepark etiquette as part of the skatepark coaching workshops. This is some great information to new young skatepark users and especially parents. Young skatepark users don’t retain information well and it’s important for parents to help educate their young ones on the do and don’ts at a skatepark to give all users a great experience at the skatepark. This discussion took place at one of the recent Fremantle scooter sessions and covers skatepark etiquette (what to do and not to do at a skatepark), foot placement on a scooter, scooter design differences, quick maintenance and helmet safety. Please give it a watch and educate yourself in skatepark etiquette so that all users at the skatepark will have a rad experience.

 
Give the below video a watch to help understand the difference between a certified and non certified helmet as to what Shaun was talking about in the skatepark etiquette presentation video

A few hours behind time the skatepark competition for bmx, skateboard and scooter got underway. With a good crowd of people to watch the locals of Esperance got busy rolling out the rad. It was really good to see the progression of the riders since our last visit to Esperance in December with much progress in the building of skills. There was a great turn out of skateboarders and scooters riders but a few of the bmx riders we missing. Many people came down after and had thought the competition had been cancelled, Freestyle Now will always do our best to run a competition when the weather condition are not ideal, so we told them that it was not, they were most upset.

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.
