Jason Parker moving over to the veteran’s squad

twitterlinkedinmail

Jason Parker such an awesome rider, such an awesome dude, moving over to the veterans squad

In 2014 Jason travelled to Japan. He competed at the international bmx flatland contest Flatark. This cross footed Mc Circle was taken at a riding spot in Osaka.

Jason Parker is a very important part of the Freestyle Now squad. His journey to being part of Freestyle Now is a unique story for sure. In the mid 90’s Freestyle Now co founder Shaun Jarvis was doing solo stunt shows. Jason was 15 years old living in Australind when he heard that Freestyle Now (Shaun Jarvis) was going to be at the 1995 Brunswick Junction agricultural show, he was devastated that he could not make it there. Jason almost went to the Perth Royal show in 1996 as he knew Shaun would be performing there, he found a program for the entertainment in the news paper, but unforeseen circumstances rose and he did not make it. Shaun was again at the Brunswick show in 1996 but Jason could not make it there but some of his friends did and told him about it, he was super bummed and just wanted to be able to meet Shaun and see the Freestyle Now show. This was at a time when there were not many riders and no one was riding flatland bmx in Perth. This was at a time of no skateparks and if you found another rider you were lucky. The BMX freestyle scene in Perth was super small. In 1998 Shaun was back at the Brunswick agricultural show and Jason did not make it. In 1999 Shaun returned to the Brunswick Agricultural shows to perform another solo show but by now Jason had moved to Kinross in the northern suburbs of Perth, so he missed out again.

By this time Shaun had started to be the distributor in Australia for the well know flatland products Graveyard, Nankai and Cam Acura. To help promote this distribution an advertisement was placed in a national BMX magazine called Freewheel BMX. In a print mistake the phone number listed was wrong and Jason who was keen to meet other riders rang the phone number. Jason “Is this graveyard products”, old guy on the one end of the phone “Graveyard is some kind of joke” and hangs up. Jason rang that number a few more times and almost put the old guy into a graveyard! Not giving up Jason was determined to get in contact with Freestyle Now so he called a bike shop called Pal and Panther, a popular bmx friendly bike shop who was also a sponsor of Freestyle Now. They happened to have the correct phone number for Freestyle Now and Jason made contact. This was late in 1999. On the first time Jason came to ride with Shaun it was at Shaun’s house in Clarkson, 10 minutes from Kinross. Jason got his mum to bring him up and ride, Jason had some rad tricks and knew what was up with bmx flatland. This was the rider that Shaun was looking for to join Freestyle Now and start doing BMX shows. At the end of the riding session Shaun was showing Jason some photos in the photo album (yes that’s what we used then) One of the photos was of Shaun doing an air on a quarter pipe, Jason recognized it straight away. “That was taken at the Whiteman Park opening, mid show a tram came into the show area and the riders had to stop and wait on top of the ramp” This was correct Jason was at the very first BMX freestyle show that Shaun had been a part of. Mid 1986 before Freestyle Now Shaun was part of the Redline trick team and the very first show they performed was at the opening of Whiteman Park. Jason was only 6 years old at the time. He held that memory of that BMX freestyle show for 13 years. The connection was made 100%

Jason’s first show with Freestyle Now was at the Denmark country fair 26th February 2000. Jason performed constantly for 8 years with Freestyle Now. He even got to perform at the Brunswick Agricultural show 4 times, something he was always pumped about doing. Jason has performed in several Freestyle Now stunt shows since 2008 but his involvement in Freestyle Now had tapered off due to work and life commitments. It’s not as if Jason has ever left Freestyle Now as he never will, this is why we are moving him over to the veterans squad. Jason is a lifer Freestyle Now squad member, his involvement and contribution has been epic.

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

This is the photo that Shaun showed Jason when they first met. Shaun at doing a show at Whiteman park in August 1986. Jason was only 6 when he saw the show and 13 years later he got to met Shaun. Both friends were surprised that this actually happened. Was it this show that got Jason into BMX?

 

Jason joined the back flip club in 2008. Jason had always talked about backflipping the FN box jump but he never really had the chance. Jason had been working in Tom Price when Freestyle Now had the opportunity to perform BMX stunt shows there. So while his workmates looked on Jason threw it down. On this occasion Jason did not pull it and it was a few weeks later when he was in Melbourne at Rampfest that his goal was achieved. What make this even more challenging is Jason is riding a pure flatland style bike, a bike that was never meant to back flip or has the geometry that even would make backflips easier. A pure Jason Parker move right there for sure.

In 2016 Jason surprised many competitors when he arrived at DownUnderGround, telling everyone he has not been riding much and then proceeded to take the win in the expert class like he had been in full training mode, everyone knew that he always tells the truth. That’s a total Jason Parker move right there.

Jason Parker worked fly in fly out at Tom Price for many years. He had one bike at home and one bike in Tom Price. Jason trekked all the way up to the top of Mt Tom Price with his bike and had this perfect decade photo taken with the town of Tom Price in the back ground. Pure radness.

In 2002 Jason got to perform at the Brunswick Junction show, he was pumped, as always.

In 2007 Jason was working in Tom Price. Freestyle Now has a stunt show there so this was super close for Jason. No one nose picks the FN box jump like Jason.

2008 Kojonup show. Shaun Jarvis and Jason Parker double routine on the FN box jump.

Jason entered the video round of the 2016 DownUnderGround video contest. This was filmed while he was in Byron Bay

Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware – BMX competition May 2021

twitterlinkedinmail

Luke Tooze is so bad ass. This 360 gap is so rad. Luke took 1st place in pro and $500 cash. Luke rode the Mandurah skatepark and just sent trick after trick. Such a great run.

The Action Sports Games has been a staple of the competition scene for 10 years, the first taking place in Mandurah in 2011. After a few years the event moved to Bunbury and was held there for a few years and now it was back at Mandurah, held at the new Mandurah skatepark. What an amazing event the Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware was. The competition zone was the small bowl and street/plaza section so that it gave diversity to the competition so that competitors of many different styles and abilities could throw down. This was one of the biggest BMX competitions since the Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships held back in November. The Action Sports Games BMX competitions was postponed twice before it was finally held. The competition was set to take place on the Sunday of the Action Sports Games but the water falling from the sky put a stop to that, and then it was set for early May but Covid restrictions were in effect so it finally took place in a perfect sunny day. The BMX competition was well attended with large numbers of competitors all keen to roll out the rad and help support BMX. The beginners and intermediate had finals, their qualifying rounds were super tight in points. In the beginners after qualifying the top six moving into the finals was Harlan Pfeiffer and Albie Livesley tied on 66 points for first and then Kayden Taylor sitting in 3rd with 60 points. 4th was Harry Daley with 59 points and Brenten Waddingham and Bianca Martin sitting tied in 5th with 57 points. Going into the finals it was a one between 4th and 5th. This was going to be a tight final. Harlan was able to take the win, with some good flowing and consistent lines. Coming in 2nd and a well deserved place was Freestyle Now recruits squad member Albie Livesley, only 2 points behind. Brenten Waddingham upped it in the finals moving into 3rd place. Kayden Taylor moved on down to 4th. He rode really well but tried some harder tricks which lowered his consistency scores. He has lots of potential and we are sure we will see him taking podium really soon.

Clockwise from top left – Harlan Pfeiffer on his way winning the beginners class – Albie Livesley with a rad 360. Albie won the under 10’s and a second in beginners with all the skills – Jack Quinlan is one of the youngest competitors at the age of 4 and ripped around the skatepark, expect to see more of him at competitions – Bianca Martin is a shredder. Bianca won the girls class and mixed it in the beginners for a 6th place.

The intermediate class was super rad and fully stacked with lots of rad young riders. Ronan McCamish and Roman Depiazzi had tied for first place with 79 points in qualifying and were in the finals. Either of these two roadsters could take the win. Also making the finals in 3rd place was Jake Welhan. Jake has the best one footer tabletops going at the moment and he did plenty of them in the competition. We need more trick like this coming on up that for sure, pure style. Shae Matthews also made it into the finals but after hitting up some 720’s in qualifying his ankle was cooked from landing off. Only 3 riders in the finals, any one of them could take the win. Ronan McCamish has a great style and flowed around the Mandurah small bowl effortless. A first place. Roman Depiazzi is moving on up the skill set super good. He is expanding his abilities almost on the daily. In the finals he was less consistent than in his qualifiers which dropped him a few points behind Ronan but a well deserving 2nd place. Jake Welhan didn’t get the radness rolling in the finals. His game was off a bit. But he still managed to hit them one footed tabletops with that Jake style, a 3rd place.

Clockwise from top left – Ronan McCamish won the intermediate class by a few points, blasted some rad airs and rode super rad – Roman Depiazzi has been progressing so fast over the past year and it was great to see him take a second place in the intermediates – Jake Welhan is rad. He has some rad one footer tabletops. Jake took 3rd in intermediates – Shaun Jarvis the oldest competitor took the 3rd in open, bike flip foot plant.

The open class had just 3 riders. 3rd place went to Freestyle Now squadron leader Shaun Jarvis, second place was taken by Jack Hooper and first was Kieran Ramsey. These two riders ride completely different from each other. Jack is all grinds and lines while Kieran is all whips and flips. At the end of the two runs they both had a highest score of 82 points, it was a tie. To seek a tie breaker their firsts runs were looked at and Kieran had it with 80 points over 74 points for Jack. Congratulations Kieran. The pro class was all Luke Tooze. Power, flow, speed, big tricks. His 360 out of the bowl over the step up gap into the plaza section was just epic. A first place and $500 prize money. 2nd place was west oz legend Ryan Aqulina. Riding like only Ryan can. Great use of the park both bowl and plaza and $300 prize money, he was stoked. 3rd place went to Jeremy Mills with some nice riding and good flow and winning $160.

The Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware BMX competition was a rad day. It put BMX in the spotlight. Big props to the under 10’s and girls competitors, the future is rad that for sure. It was unfortunate that the weather cancelled the competition on the weekend as the rest of the Action Sport Games but the important factor is the competition finally took place and the radness was rolled out. We would like to thank our competition supporters Colony BMX, Local BMX, United Bikes as well as all the BMX riders and spectators who came to the competition. We are looking forward to making the 2022 Mandurah Action Sports Games even bigger again. See you there.

Clockwise from top left – Kieran Ramsey sending a flair and wining the open class, just – Jack Hooper has some great skills and it was great to see them compete at the Action Sports Games and a 2nd in the open class – Ryan Aqulina is a rider of large skills and has been riding for 20 years, 2nd place in pro – Jeremy Mills rode well and took the 3rd place in pro – More photos can be found on our facebook page here.

The Action Sports Games has been a staple of the competition scene for 10 years, the first taking place in Mandurah in 2011. After a few years the event moved to Bunbury and was held there for a few years and now it was back at Mandurah, held at the new Mandurah skatepark. What an amazing event the Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware was. The competition zone was the small bowl and street/plaza section so that it gave diversity to the competition so that competitors of many different styles and abilities could throw down. This was one of the biggest scooter competitions that Western Australia had seen in a few years. The scooter competition was so well attended with large numbers of competitors all keen to roll out the rad and be involved supporting scooters. With lots of cash and prizes to be won many riders were keen to compete. The beginners had a good list of riders and it was a regular to our coaching sessions Lucas Lenane that took the win. Freja Iburg has been attending a few competition in the past few months and it’s good to see their progress. Keeping it calm during the competition runs it important and you can see Freja has been improving, taking the win in the girls / ladies class, most awesome. Luke Donovan is on the rise with their skills. Will he be completion in next year’s pro class? Could be if his progression stays moving on. His win in the open class was super impressive and dialed.

Jarod Colwell had so many tricks at the Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games. This super grab over the box was so clean and dialed just like all of his other tricks. A true professional skilled scooter rider.

The pro class was off the hook and Jarod Colwell was hanging off another hook that was well and truly off the first hook. His runs were something else. His backflip from flat down a gap was the wildest thing of the contest, totally came from nowhere and erupted the crowd for sure. His first place in the pro class and $500 cash winnings could never be disputed. Taking 2nd place in the pro class was Corey Vandam with $250, his 540 flairs was so spot on and clean. Another OG taking third was Jae Yates only 3 points behind Corey. A few inconsistencies in a few tricks may have been the issue as it certainly was not his lack of skills. Consistency is key in competitions. Adam Puffler was only 1 point behind Jae, Adam has defiantly moved up the skills ladder since he won the intermediates class at the 2018 Action Sports Games. Kash Toft is on the up and rise, it’s a name to know for next year’s pro class. Kash was only one point behind Adam, yeah the pro class was a super tight competition. Kash as some rad skills that if the progress is still there could be a podium challenger. We would like to thank our competition supporters Scooter Hut, Grit scooters, Crisp scooters, District scooters, Striker scooters, Root Industries as well as all the scooter riders and spectators who came to the competition. We are looking forward to making the 2022 Mandurah Action Sports Games even bigger again. See you there.

Clockwise from top left – Lucas Lenane is a young beginner scooter rider that is seeking out their own style and flow. Some nice uprail action on his way to first in the beginners. – Freja Iburg road really well and took the win in the girls / ladies class. – Luke Donovan likes Nirvana and can also ride scooters really good. Over the box on his way to first in the open class. – Logan Dunbar backflippin and winning the intermediates class, expect to see Logan in the open class next year. – More photos can be found on our facebook page here .

Brendon Cross doing what he does so well, skating and getting tweeked over the box, on his way to the pro class win and $500 cash prize.

The Action Sports Games has been a staple of the competition scene for 10 years, the first taking place in Mandurah in 2011. After a few years the event moved to Bunbury and was held there for a few years and now it was back at Mandurah, held at the new Mandurah skatepark. What an amazing event the Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware was. The competition zone was the small bowl and street/plaza section so that it gave diversity to the competition so that competitors of many different styles and abilities could throw down. The skateboard competition was so well attended with large numbers of competitors all keen to roll out the rad and be involved supporting skateboarding. There was a strong turn out in the girls/ladies division as well as the beginners which was great to see. Some competitors entered in two different divisions such as Hailee Roberts and Mia Kretzer who exchange placings in the intermediates and girls with each taking a win and a second place. The Evens boys were in full effect and have also powered themselves up to the awesome level with Zen taking the win in the open class and Vai placing 4th in the pro and Cruz 6th in pro. These young boys have still got so much growing to do and will definitely be challenging the top pros very soon. In the pro class there was over $900 to share with the top 3. It was defiantly a close contest between Brendon Cross and Sam Ormski, with both skaters having so much power and skill pushing through their runs. Both went big. Both went fast, but it was Brendon who took the win by only 12 points.
We would like to thank our competition supporters Modus Bearings, The 4 Skateboard Co and Star surf and skate as well as all the skaters and spectators who came to the competition. We are looking forward to making the 2022 Mandurah Action Sports Games even bigger again. See you there.

Clockwise from top left – It was good to see Mia Kretzer skate, taking the win in the girls/ladies division and second place in the intermediates, big moves and great consistency. – Hailee Roberts won the intermediates division and also took second in the girls/ladies division, such and awesome skater with a big future in skating. – Zen Evens was amazing to watch skate on his way to winning the open class. So much power and skill for such a young competitor. His brothers Via and Cruz was are watching in the background, both of them held it up well in the pro class. – Jack Forman has been skating for some time now and his presents at the Mandurah Action Sports Games was great to see. Always having a positive attitude at competitions. He was out of skating for almost a year due to a knee injury so it was good to have him back and rolling out the rad. – More photos can be found on our facebook page here

Sam Ormski has so much flow and power in his style, he is so rad to watch as he navigates his way around the skatepark hitting up what ever is in this way. So much height in this over the hip, no one went higher than Sam, second place in the pro class and $260 cash winnings
