Esperance skatepark competition – round 18 freestyle now western Australian skatepark competition series


Round 18 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series took place at the new Esperance skatepark. It was the opening celebrations and the skatepark was full of participants and spectators. Freestyle Now headed to Esperance with squad members Shaun Jarvis, Ben Thomas, Matt Adkins and Kieran Ramsay. 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. The competition turnout was great with lots of new competitors who were entering their first competition. the spectators were everywhere and supported the competitors with great applause and cheer. 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 girl’s class to help encourage more girls to enter. At the Esperance competition there were no open class riders but we think with such a rad skatepark at their disposal it won’t take long before the level of skill increases rapidly. We would like to thank the Shire of Esperance for putting on such a rad weekend and taking care of the Freestyle Now squad. also thanks to our supporters, Colony bmxSacrifice scooters. Round 1 of the 2017 series takes place at the new Wanneroo skatepark on the 13th January. Be sure to check our coming events page for all the latest information.


Clockwise from top left – Zacyyah Smith took out the 1st place in the girls class, it was great to see so many girls competing in Esperance – Talyn Galic took out the 1st place in the intermediate scooter class with some great skills over the volcano – Nic Woods flippin out on his way to 1st place in open bmx – Charlie Howard was unsure if he should enter into the beginner bmx class as he said he could not do any tricks. It’s not about tricks it’s about participating and having a good time.

Freestyle Now turns 30 years old


Freestyle Now has been rolling out the rad since 1986.

It’s hard to believe but Freestyle Now started way back in December of 1986. Now 30 years later it has grown from 3 young guys just wanting to promote BMX freestyle with BMX stunt shows to an Australian wide entity. Freestyle Now specialises in entertaining stunt show performances, skatepark coaching workshops, well managed skatepark competitions and motivational school presentations all while making sure inclusiveness and diversity is at the forefront of our ethos. By applying the same philosophy that free sports teach us, to our business ethics, we have persevered to achieve our goal of running well-managed events and entertaining performances. We have accomplished this all while promoting the fun aspects of BMX, skateboarding and scooter riding and associated activities. This has, and will always be our main focus.

freemantle speed classic 3rd march 1987

The original Freestyle Now squad members L to R Shaun Jarvis, Brad Dyer and Georg Molnar taken at the Fremantle Speed Classic in March 1987

Freestyle Now began as an idea in mid 1986 by three friends Georg Molnar, Brad Dyer and Shaun Jarvis. 1986 was a year of new things for these three friends. A new sport was emerging, BMX freestyle. This is what brought these three guys together. In Perth Western Australia where they lived the small BMX freestyle community was tight. There were only a handful of riders and Georg, Brad and Shaun were in the core of it. Shaun started in the BMX racing scene in 1981 and raced in Western Australia until the new emerging freestyle sport took hold of his senses in early 1986. Within a few months, he took a spot on the newly formed Redline BMX trick team which was put together by Padbury cycles bike shop. It was through this shop that word got around about other riders, this is how Brad, Georg and Shaun met each other. The very first show that the Redline trick team did was at Whiteman Park for its grand opening in August 1986. Although this team did a few shows they only lasted a short time and in the later part of 1986 Shaun left. It was upon this leaving that the three friends got together to form their own BMX freestyle team, Freestyle Now.

Where did the name come from? A very popular magazine from America was called “Freestylin”. Freestyle is what the riders did, it’s what they called it. Now is an action word as in do it “now”. So Freestyle Now was the name that Brad, Georg and Shaun settled on as it seemed fitting.

In 1986 the only form of information available in the BMX world was through magazines. There was no internet to gain instant information from. Only the magazines had the information and this was sometimes up to 6 months old by the time it would reach Perth from either America or England. BMX freestyle teams were all over these magazines, from the large factory teams to the little group of friends that started something. It was this that inspired the formation of Freestyle Now.

The sole purpose of Freestyle Now when it was formed was to promote to the masses the newly emerging sport of BMX freestyle. This was done via BMX stunt shows. December 1986 was when Freestyle Now did their first ever show at the Mullaloo primary school which was followed a few weeks later by a performance at a Christmas dance event in Girrawheen It was the start of something that no one could ever imagine would survive still all these years later.

The second show Freestyle Now did was at the Girrawheen Christmas dance

With the first show done new locations were sought for more stunt shows. For Georg, Brad and Shaun it was all about the promotion of BMX freestyle. Another medium that was also emerging out of America was the “Zine”. A small photocopied magazine that was produced by various people. It was another platform to promote BMX freestyle. So the three guys brought a second hand photocopier and started making the “Freestyle Now zine. These were produced using photos and a cut and glue method. They were put into bike shops and given to other riders. It was a very D.I.Y mentality. With no prior experience it was just hands on and make it work, a true Freestyle Now philosophy.

Another good friend of the trio Todd Triebler, who had also been on the same BMX freestyle shop team as Shaun in early 86 was recruited to announce the stunt shows and as a backup rider. These guys were tight, inseparable, spending every moment they could riding together, learning new tricks and exploring Perth.

The BMX freestyle scene was growing steadily in Perth and the need for regular gatherings was required so Freestyle Now went ahead and held its first competition in January 1988. Riders came from all over to attend. The only way to spread the news was through word of mouth and the Freestyle Now Zine. The competition was a success, so more were organised. Over the next few years, many competitions were held.

The whole ethos of promoting the new sport of BMX freestyle was complete, BMX stunt shows, BMX zines and BMX freestyle competitions.

In time Georg Molnar started to move on from BMX and left the Freestyle Now team and Brad Dyer returned to America. Shaun and Todd recruited new riders into Freestyle Now and kept on performing the BMX stunt shows.


Todd Triebler on the left and Shaun Jarvis on the right at the Bruce Rock show in 1989 performing double no handed cherrypickers.

When the 90’s rolled around a major shift took place in the sport of BMX freestyle. It was as if overnight every rider had quit and stopped riding. There was still a core group of BMX freestylers but the need for competitions had passed. With Brad now in America, the drive to produce the Freestyle Now Zine was in a standby mode. The promotion of the sport had shifted to just the stunt shows.

Over the coming years, Todd and the other riders moved on from BMX and their association with Freestyle Now. This left Shaun Jarvis at the helm steering Freestyle Now into the future. When there were no riders to perform at the stunt shows Shaun just went out and did solo shows. The need to carry on the promotion of the freestyle sport was what drove Shaun to keep going. After 30 years you can check out a list of all of our past stunt shows on our past stunt show page here.

In late 1996 the sport of BMX freestyle seemed to be coming back, new riders were emerging. One of these riders was a young Jason Parker. Jason had heard about the Freestyle Now stunt shows through friends in the south-west area of Western Australia where he lived. When Jason moved to Perth in 1998 he managed to track down Shaun through an advertisement in a national BMX publication for BMX products that Freestyle Now was then distributing. The two guys started riding together. It did not take long for Shaun to recognise Jason’s riding potential, and he was asked to join Freestyle Now in 2000. In an ironic twist, when the two riders met for the first time Shaun showed Jason some BMX photographs, one of the photos was of Shaun at the very first BMX show that he did with the Redline BMX trick team, the one at Whiteman Park in mid 1986. Jason was surprised to see the photo because as a very young 6 year old Jason Parker was in the crowd that day and saw the show. The two new friends could not believe it, Jason remembered the whole show, how a tram came in through the middle of the show location and stopped the show leaving some riders on the top of the ramp. Even to this day, the two riders can’t believe how ironic it was. Jason is still riding and involved with Freestyle Now today and apart from Shaun is the longest serving squad member.


Jason Parker joined the Freestyle Now squad at the start of 2000. This was Jason’s second show at the Toodyay Moondyne Festival in May 2000. His first show was at the Denmark Country Fair in February 2000

Over time more BMX shows were performed and new riders were recruited into the squad. But now with the growing popularity of BMX, the need for competitions became prominent once again.

In the early 80’s Co-founder Shaun Jarvis helped organise BMX races on the local BMX dirt jumping/BMX track that the youth of the town of Quinns Rock had built. Organising BMX competitions was nothing new as he had done it before as a BMX racer and then as a BMX freestyler. The need for well managed events was something that was required to help with the growth of the BMX scene. Some of the first competitions that Freestyle Now organised were dirt jumping competitions in the late 90’s. These morphed into BMX skatepark competitions for local government and community organisations and were very successful. Freestyle Now was then asked to manage skateboard competitions as well as BMX and then with the rise of the scooter scene the whole skatepark culture was catered for in competition management. All of our past competitions can be found on our past competition page here

In 2001 community T.V. was starting to emerge in Perth via channel 31. There was a show being air called “Cruzin” a show about Perth hot rods and the car street scene. Shaun was watching this show and realised that a show about BMX could be done. Shaun called up Jason and said “do you want to do a television show on community television”. Jason said “sure why not!” and with no prior computer experience or video editing experience “Behind the Bars” was started. The show was a nine part show with each show airing every 4 weeks. It was a major undertaking at first. In the same way, the Freestyle Now zine was done with a D.I.Y. mentality so was Behind the Bars. Learning as the show progressed was the format. It was just hands on and make it work, a true Freestyle Now philosophy.

This is the first episode of Behind the Bars which aired on Perth community television in 2001. All the episodes can be found on the Behind the Bars media page here

With BMX, scooters and skateboards being a great youth involvement activity it was not long until Freestyle Now started its motivational school presentations. These school presentations were to help keep the youth motivated to pursue their dreams and goals. Using the medium of BMX, scooters and skateboards as a way of delivering this motivational message, with self discipline and consistency you can reach your achievement. Tricks done on BMX, scooters and skateboards are a great example of this

To help grow the competitions and to also help new riders Freestyle Now started to host skatepark coaching sessions. These sessions are designed to help younger participants or those needing to progress their skills.

With show performances, competitions, coaching, publications and promotions, Freestyle Now is advancing into the future with positivity paramount. The past was great but the future holds larger aspirations. Freestyle Now continues to grow by using our fundamental ethos of courtesy, respect, inclusiveness and diversity within our cultural industry. Please always remember to Freestyle now……….. before it’s too late…………….

Over the 30 years Freestyle Now has progressed so much. This is one of our stunt shows from January 2015

Freestyle Now at DownUnderGround bmx flatland finals 2016



DownUnderGround is the Australian national bmx flatland contest series. Round 1 was in Adelaide with round 2 being a video round and round 3 the finals of series 8 took place in Melbourne at the iconic Imax location at the Melbourne Museum. Freestyle Now squad members Paul Chamberlin, Shaun Jarvis and Jason Parker attended the contest with awesome results. With one of the best turn outs that DownUnderGround has seen in recent years the contest was great. Paul Chamberlain took out the win in the open class along with the series 8 year end title in the open class. Very consistent riding as normal from Paul with some great whiplash combos. Jason parker was a surprise entrant as no one knew he was showing up. Being off his bike for 6 weeks due to his up north work schedule can be hectic but it was great to see Jason there. With two good runs he ended up taking the 1st place in the expert class to his surprise. Well done Jason that was epic. Shaun Jarvis rode well and took home 4th place in the contest and in doing so won the series 8 year end title in the expert class. Congratulation to all three squad members for their efforts at DownUnderGround. Series 9 will be taking place next year so be sure to keep informed about all things flatland in Australia via www.bmxflatlandaustralia.com

“This was the third time I had gone to Japan for Flatark. For me it is now a yearly thing to do, and I look forward to seeing so many riders and friends and making new friends. I travelled to Japan with two other riders from Perth, Tim Sutherland and Trent Karow. On our first night in Kobe we went to this small jam at Shin Kobe station that started at 11pm. With one like 2 hours sleep over the past 40 hours i managed to ride ok and won a G-Shock watch from Uchino. A very proud and honoured moment for sure. We met Paul Chamberlain and friend Kit McKenna in Kobe the day after. I rode every day and experienced so many good times. On the day of the competition I finally planned out my run. I felt comfortable to ride at the contest site, the more comfortable you are the more relaxed you can be for the contest. I hit two smooth combos and then with the third combo it fell apart a bit and didn’t go very well. I had not slept well the night before so I was not that bummed as I knew I had rode the best I could on the day, I was happy with my run and that is what counted the most. To find out a few days later that I took 19th place was rad, super stoked for sure. After my contest run  I met Ryo Ishikawa, a young 10 year old who is inspired by my riding, I was blown away that he wanted to meet me. I felt very honoured to inspire younger riders. Later I headed over to Meriken Park to ride. There I met 3 young riders (under 10) and riding with them was a highlight of my trip, they inspired me and they started to copy some of my tricks I was doing. They even brought me coffee, something so small but meant so much. Going to Osaka and seeing friends, and riding with them was another awesome time. Halloween in Osaka was an experience I could no imagine, what an insane night, be sure to check the video of the footage to see what I meen.  The whole 10 days trip was so good. Every day riding, experiencing, learning and being motivated. Looking back on the trip I feel so motivated to progress more and I can’t wait to return. I made a video diary from each of the 10 days adventure and compiled them into one video. Give it a watch to see the adventure and how awesome the trip was over the 10 days. Sure it’s just over 1 1/2 hours but the trip lasted ten days with so much packed into it it was hard not to show this much.”

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


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.
