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”

Freestyle Now Embelton Primary School BMX presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

The more effort you put in the bigger the rewards

Freestyle Now attended the Embelton primary school for a school assembly presentation as part of a reading reward program they had running at the school. The day before the school assembly presentation Freestyle Now hosted a coaching session at the school for skateboard, scooter and bmx participants. In the presentation we spoke about how putting in the effort you are able to achieve the rewards and bmx riding is just one example of this. You cannot get good at bmx freestyle riding if you don’t put in the effort. The more effort the bigger the reward. Main Freestyle Now presenter Shaun Jarvis  also spoke about the act of kindness and that how being kind has its own reward, others being kind to you. Freestyle Now squad member Luke Tooze was on hand to throw down some of his radness as well as good friend Daniel Davis. The school students love it and got super excited when Principle Walker sat on top of the ramp and got jumped over.

twitterlinkedinmail

Tackling mental health in important. Stay active both mentally and physically to help your mental health. 

Luke Tooze sending the vertical rotation at Waroona School

Freestyle Now attended the Waroona school for a school assembly presentation as part of R U OK day. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Luke Tooze invited along good friend Daniel Davis to roll out the rad to the school. The presentations main focus was to talk about mental health. Students from pre primary through to high school were in attendance. The BMX riders performed some great BMX stunts and tricks that the students were super hyped with. In the middle of the presentation Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis took to the microphone to talk about the importance of speaking and listening about mental health.It is important to speak about how you are feeling but it is also just as important to listen when someone is not feeling mentally well. When your friend or family member talks to you about how they are feeling it dose not always mean you need to fix their problems. Sometimes just speaking to someone who is listening helps. Please remember to ask people R U OK if you can see a change in their mannerisms. Sometimes all it takes to help someone is to ask R U OK.
