twitterlinkedinmail

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

Shaun Jarvis – Rolling out the rad in April 2021 video

twitterlinkedinmail

Shaun Jarvis April 2021 bmx edit has some crazy moments.

Freestyle Now co founder and squadron leader Shaun Jarvis has been riding BMX for 40 years and he is not slowing down just yet at 52 years of age. In April he attended many different locations with Freestyle Now hosting coaching sessions and skatepark competitions. The premise behind the video was to get clips at as many of the locations as possible that Freestyle Now visited. In some cases there was not much time to plan its was simply ride and film. Shaun explains “For me riding is an organic process, nothing should be forced, just let it flow. It was a lot of fun filming the clips. Looking at the spot and thinking how can I interact with what’s here and how does my riding fit with the location. Many of the clips are just freestyled, no set plan just as it flowed out. Some took longer than should have and some were a one and done. Over all I’m stoked on the clips, I pushed myself a bit more than normal, took some heavy slams and the outcome is some great memories. Big massive thanks to Kareece Furneyvall and Amos Hadad for their filming, really appreciate it. Stay rad”
