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.

Mandurah Mazda Action Sports Games presented by Drug Aware – Scooter competition April 2021

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 .

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.

Both went fast, but it was Brendon who took the win by only 12 points.

In 2008 Freestyle Now held a competition at the Bridgetown skatepark, one of the first at the then new skatepark. Now just  over 12 years and 5 competitions later Freestyle Now was back to host another skatepark competition. This competition was the sixth one at Bridgetown skatepark and it was just as awesome as the past 5. With a great turn out of competitors and spectators the radness got rolled out by many. There was lots of prizes on offer and everyone that entered took home products, when that happened its awesome. A big thank you to Blackwood Youth Action and also to our supporters Grit ScooterThe 4 skateboard co and Colony BMX. Be sure to check our coming events page for more information on all of our coming events.

Great riding from Jayden. – Seth Jiblet took the win in the BMX open class riding brakeless and chainless. Great flow and smooth riding was one of the key factors in his win. – Noah Almond took home a 5th in scooter beginners but as you can tell from the photo his determination will defiantly set him up for a win soon enough. – We were stoked to see Cooper Clause compete in Bridgetown and take the 5th place in skateboard.

Port Kennedy had an old skatepark It was built at a time when it seemed no one knew how to work with cement. The City of Rockingham after years and years finally got the funding to build a new skatepark, and what a awesome skatepark it is. The designers and builders got this one about 90% correct. Good lines, good flow and good a good range of elements. Freestyle Now hosted the first skatepark competition at the new skatepark. As always at Freestyle Now skatepark competitions all disciplines and skill levels were catered for. It was really good to see the great turn out of competitors. A big thank you to the City of Rockingham and also to our supporters  Grit ScooterThe 4 skateboard co and Colony BMX. Be sure to check our coming events page for more information on all of our coming events. A full list of all the competitions that freestyle Now has hosted can be found on the past competitions page here.

Clockwise from top left – Madison Ware took the 2nd place in the skateboard beginners class. She had some great skills and put together a great run around the skatepark – Brandon Newbury won a new skate deck from the 4 skateboard company for winning the intermediate skateboard class – Jack Hoopes travelled the 1 hour long train ride and then the 30 minute pedal from the train station to get to the Port Kennedy skatepark competition. It was great to see that level of commitment. A 2nd place for Jack along with some great riding. Thanks for coming and rolling out the rad Jack – 1st place in the scooter intermediate went to Kaden Hodson. With a great mix of skills using many of the different elements of the skatepark, Kaden put together some killer runs. While many riders were focusing on just a few banger tricks and getting their trick list done Kaden focused on flow and a range of skills and tricks all over the park.
