Jammin in the Park


The jamming in the park 2010 was a really awesome day had by all. A large portion of Bunbury came out to hang out, listen to some hardcore bands, do tricks, win prizes, and most of all have fun.

The coaching session that Freestyle Now hosted in the morning  were well attended by many youngsters all wishing to gain some more knowledge on bmx skills. In the afternoon the Bunbury skatepark was awash of bmxers, skaters and scooters as the park was full of mayhem. The best of the action was the high jump comp that ended in Jaymin King and Sebbi Scott both skying over a set of Bicycle Union handle bars. When it could be resolved as both were jumping the height with ease it turned into a 180 high jump battle and still at over 1.5 meters high it was still unresolved. So the Pav man stepped in and hoisted them bars way high into the air and the high jump was on again and this time Jaymin King rocketing well over the bars, over 2 meters. Score.

There was a young ripper attending the Jammin in the park event named Rowan. Rowan got bitten with the bmx bug back in 2006 when he was only 3. After seeing a Freestyle Now show in Mukinbudin in 2006 he was hooked and said that is what I want to do. He is mad keen on bmx and loves it, now aged 7 he was stoked to be getting some coaching from the Freestyle Now squad. Shaun Jarvis had this to say about meeting Rowan again ““This is one of the most inspiring parts of doing the Freestyle Now shows, having shown bmx to many people and to get someone so stoked on bmx because they saw one to the shows is a massive inspiration”

Thanks to Stowaway distribution and Royal bmx for the flow of prizes that the riders were able to get a hold of during the afternoon and a mad props to the City of Bunbury for throwin on the Shindig.
