Welcome to the Freestyle now recruits squad – Ethan Rowland

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now would like to welcome young Ethan Rowland onto the Freestyle Now recruits squad. 12 ½ year old Ethan has been riding scooters for about 3 years and is a total shredder. Last year Ethan took the 1st place in the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark Series in the intermediate class and made to move to the open class for 2018. He is currently sitting at the top of the point’s ladder in the open class for the 2018 series. Freestyle Now has been rolling out the rad since 1986 and started out with only 3 squad members and over the last 32 years many people have come and gone but one thing has always remained and that is the need for our squad members to always be wanting to roll out the rad. Be sure to check Ethan’s profile out on our recruits squad page here. Welcome to the recruits Ethan.

Ethan at the recent Collie skatepark competition

The Freestyle Now recruits squad is designed to teach young radsters about how a sponsorship works. So many young shredders say they want to be sponsored but none really understand what then means. Sponsorship is a two way deal, the rider promotes the brand, and the brand helps the rider. Too many young guns think that they just get product and that’s it, they don’t understand how the sponsorship treadmill works. For Freestyle Now, the recruit’s squad is the chance to help out young shredders but also to help them educate others what sponsorship is all about. Every young radster must start somewhere. The recruits is just that place. Younger shredders who show the potential to roll out the rad, being inclusive, show the potential to be good role models and the ability to progress up the ladder of radness, one day could become a full Freestyle Now squad member

Collie skatepark competition BMX scooter skateboard – Round 3 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark series

twitterlinkedinmail

Round 3 of the 2018 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series took place at the Collie skatepark. Freestyle Now has held a skatepark competition there every year for the past few and with each competition they get better and better with more competitors and more progression. There was a great turn out this year with a good amount of skatepark competitors in all groups and classes. It is great to see many competitors travelling to enter the competitions, this is great as it brings many different groups of riders together that not necessarily would get a chance to meet or see others ride. With 53 competitors at the Collie skatepark competition it was one of our larger competitions.  But as normal Freestyle Now got the skatepark competition done without effort and done smoothly. We would also like to thank our supporters Kickass BMXThe 4 skateboard companyModus BearingsGrit scooter, and the Shire of Collie. Round 4 takes place in Pinjarra so be sure to check our coming events page for more info.

Clockwise from top left – Jack Forman won the open skateboard class. After 2 runs both he and Adam Pacyanko were equal points. So it was a mad run off in the bowl, 30 seconds each back and forth until one fell off. Paper scissors rock and it was Adam who went first, run 1 they were good but in run 2 Adam bailed, jack was the winner and went home with the glory and a new 4 skateboard Co. deck – Daniel David whip hopping of the ledge into the bank, Daniel took out the win in the BMX open class but Luke Tooze was keeping the pressure on. Ethan Rowland won the intermediate year end title in 2017 and made the move to the open class. When the young 12 year old is firing he has the move and consistency. A win in Collie was good for him – Best trick of the comp would have to be Jack Carwardine and his no footed bar twist. So rad. More photos can be found on facebook here.
