Josh hitting up the full pipe in Port Hedland. This is not an easy task, just look at the surface

Freestyle Now would like to welcome our newest squad member Josh Garwood. Josh has been hitting up a few bmx stunt shows with Freestyle Now over the past year before we added him to the squad roster. Josh is amazing on a bike, has great flow, awesome style and likes to go fast and jump big. Josh was officially put on the squad in May and he had just finished up a super rad video edit. The video was shot over the past 12 months and is all killa and no filla. Josh defiantly knows how to roll out the rad and seems to have some super rad powers on and off his bmx bike. Be sure to check his profile page and watch his video edit below thanks to Jlove media. Welcome Josh and thank you for your radness.

Shaun Jarvis – Red Faces Audition 1997

twitterlinkedinmail

In 1997 Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis auditioned for the popular Hey Hey it’s Saturday Red Faces segment. The audition took place in a Perth night club. Solo bmx stunt show performances were common for Shaun as he performed solo flatland shows from the end of 1995 to the beginning of 2000 when Jason Parker joined Freestyle Now. Shaun went to the audition to maybe get on the show with no expectations. The stage was really small for a bmx  flatland performance, although Shaun made do with the size of the area and put in a solid performance. Shaun was called back to perform at the night club as a encore performance a few months later but never made it onto the TV show.

twitterlinkedinmail

Kalgoorlie is in the heartland of the Western Australian goldfields about 600kms east of Perth. Freestyle Now has had a long history of holding competitions in Kalgoorlie since 2005. Recently Freestyle Now travelled out to Kalgoorlie once again to host a skatepark coaching workshop session followed by a skatepark competition for scooter skateboard and bmx. When Freestyle Now hosts a skatepark competition we always make sure that all disciplines are involved so no participants miss out on rolling out the rad. The skatepark event was also part of a larger youth festival that was also taking place later that evening. A great community turn out on the day was good to see. Crowd participation at skatepark competitions are important and competitors get amped up when the cowed is cheering and screaming, it makes the competitors want to throw down more. It was a smaller than normal participation level at this skatepark competition but the radness defiantly was not held back. A big thank you to the youth team at the City of Kalgoorlie Boulder for their support and also to our supporters Colony bmx, Grit Scooter and 4 skateboard Company as well as. Be sure to check our coming events page for more information on all of our coming events.
