Freestyle Now recently performed some bmx stunt shows at the WD-40 Phillip Island Super Sprint V8 super cars in Victoria. The 3 days of bmx stunt shows was awesome. It was good to be back at Phillip Island, last time was for the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix in 2017. Freestyle Now squad members Dylan Schmidt and Lee Kirkman led the charge at Phillip Island bmx stunt shows along with good friend Luke Tooze who made the trek from Perth just so he could help roll out the rad at the show along with Melbourne heavy hitter rider Andrew Ahumada to round out the shows performers. The entertainment value was high with tailwhips, seat grab indian airs, 360’s, backflips and frontflips taking place over the three days of stunt shows. It was nothing but the pure radness that Freestyle Now is known for. Make sure you check out our coming events page to see where the next Freestyle Now stunt shows will be going down.

Bunbury Action Sports Games – skateboard scooter bmx competition

twitterlinkedinmail

The Bunbury Action Sports Games was another rad competition. One of the biggest scooter, skateboard and bmx skatepark competition held in Western Australia it had an awesome turn out. With a prize purse of $2500 up for grabs, first place winning $500 in the open class and $3000 worth of prizes plenty of competitors were keen. With an early 9:30am start for the beginners class it was going to be a long day. The beginner class had some great riding and good number of competitors. The bmx class had 11 competitors which was great to see. Roary O’Donnell took the win in the scooter beginner class and also took home a brand new complete scooter thanks to Grit scooters.

The intermediate class was large with a total of 31 competitors. Again it was the bmx class that had the largest numbers with 14 riders all willing to get rad and win prizes. Kieran Ramsay who has made the move from scooters to bmx took out the win in the bmx intermediate class and taking home a nice new colony sweet took frame for the win. It was great to see Jayden Cugini taking the 2nd place. 3rd place went to Chris Efi in his 2nd ever competition. The intermediate bmx class was awesome to watch so much great riding. Levi Pound was the guy who skated well enough to take the win in the intermediate skateboard class. Watch for him to up it in the next few years. Scooter intermediate was all about Kash Toft. He rode well and consistent. A good range of tricks helps with getting more points and thanks to Root Industries he took home a brand new complete scooter.

Left to right – A three way tie for first in scooter open,  Tyler Jennings, Kody Law and Jakob Wells the level of riding was off the hook.

The open class was insane, so much awesome riding went down. In the open scooter it was a three way tie for first between Jakob Wells, Kody Law and Tyler Jennings. The riders decided that they would just split the winning prize purse between them instead of having a final run off. With each judge having three categories to judge from, difficulty, diversity and consistency and then each rider having two runs and then with three judges it’s a lot of numbers to add up and for there to be a three way tie is crazy. That’s how insane the riding was.

In skate open is was Steve Murray all the way, although Jack Foreman was chasing him. Steve hit all the ramps with power and speed, his flow was on point so much so that he had to vomit after each of his runs, he was that sick at skating. Jack Foreman has been skating for a while now and it’s great to see how much progress he has had. Bmx open was going to be a tough competition. Fabio Canettii was on fire in his first run and it looked like he was going to be the man to beat, but something happened in his second run and he dint seem to have the same fire, which brought his points down. Luke Tooze gave Dylan Schmidt a run for his money but it was competition experience that prevailed for Dylan to take the win and the $500 cash first place. Luke his some great lines but just could not get the same smoothness as Dylan through the park. Jayden Roadley his some crazy tech lines through the park but his consistency was just a bit off, great riding from Jayden though.

Steven Murry took the win at the 2019 Bunbury Action Sports Games in the open skateboard division.

All up the Bunbury Action Sports Games was a great success. With 61 competitors and about 300 spectators the day was long and rad. We need to give a big shout out to the competition supporters, Colony BMX, Modus Bearings, The 4 skateboard company, Root Industries, Grit Scooters, Rip N Dip, Death Lens and of course the Action Sports Games. Our next bmx, skateboard and scooter skatepark competition takes place at the Pinjarra skatepark 13th April 2019, more info can be found on our coming events page.

Freestyle Now recently performed some bmx stunt shows at the CanTeen for Life fundraising event that took place at the Waroona Recreation centre. The day before was full of rain and it was unsure if it would fine up enough for the radness to be rolled out. In true from the clouds dispersed and the sun came out. With the first show taking place at 9am in was an early start for the squad to travel to Waroona and get set up, but nothing can stop the radness and as always Freestyle Now were keen to get the show underway. With Kim Bloodson on the mic the squad of riders consisted of recruits squad member Taj Hamilton, and reserves rider Jack Carwardine. Guest riders Josh Garwood, Luke Tooze and Nathan Dobbie rounded out the show riders. Some great entertaining performances were done over the morning. With the riders hitting the ramp and performing some amazing stunts the crowds were stoked. Backfilps, 360’s and tailwips were just some of the bmx stunts that were performed.

Freestyle Now was recently at the Ficifolia Festival in Drouin Victoria to manage a bmx, scooter and skateboard skatepark competition. Drouin is a town in the West Gippsland region about 90 kilometres east of Melbourne. The Ficifolia Festival was a great event with a massive street parade lots of entertainment and stalls. With $800 prize money up for grabs thanks to the event sponsors, the competition was on in the open class to win some of that cash. Drouin Cycles gave out some rad prizes for the afternoon competition as well with all competitors taking home prizes. Freestyle Now squad member Lee Kirkman entered into the competition and took home the 3rd place, his first skatepark competition in about 4 years, so it was great to see him shred the park. 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. It was great to see the Drouin skatepark competition building in participation levels with many new competitors coming to help roll out the rad. There was a great turnout from the town at the competition with one head count at 400 spectators. Work is underway for the 2020 Drouin skatepark competition so don’t miss it as once again its going to be a rad time. Thank you to the event sponsors Bendigo and Districts Bank, Drouin Cycles, McDonald’s Drouin, The Committee for Drouin and Michael Robinson Photography.
