Round 6 of the 2018 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series took place at the Bridgetown skatepark. It was great to have some good weather for the Bridgetown skatepark competition as in the past it rained on several occasions. It was a small but good turn out with many bmx riders making the journey down south to attend the competition and make a weekend of riding some of the south west skatepark. The competitors were all keen to show off their skills in the skatepark competition. With participants in scooter, skateboard and BMX the competition was a great success. The riding at the competition was as always off the hook with competitors pushing themselves to get their tricks done in the runs.

Collie skatepark competition BMX scooter skateboard – Round 3 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark series

twitterlinkedinmail

Round 3 of the 2018 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series took place at the Collie skatepark. Freestyle Now has held a skatepark competition there every year for the past few and with each competition they get better and better with more competitors and more progression. There was a great turn out this year with a good amount of skatepark competitors in all groups and classes. It is great to see many competitors travelling to enter the competitions, this is great as it brings many different groups of riders together that not necessarily would get a chance to meet or see others ride. With 53 competitors at the Collie skatepark competition it was one of our larger competitions.  But as normal Freestyle Now got the skatepark competition done without effort and done smoothly. We would also like to thank our supporters Kickass BMXThe 4 skateboard companyModus BearingsGrit scooter, and the Shire of Collie. Round 4 takes place in Pinjarra so be sure to check our coming events page for more info.

Clockwise from top left – Jack Forman won the open skateboard class. After 2 runs both he and Adam Pacyanko were equal points. So it was a mad run off in the bowl, 30 seconds each back and forth until one fell off. Paper scissors rock and it was Adam who went first, run 1 they were good but in run 2 Adam bailed, jack was the winner and went home with the glory and a new 4 skateboard Co. deck – Daniel David whip hopping of the ledge into the bank, Daniel took out the win in the BMX open class but Luke Tooze was keeping the pressure on. Ethan Rowland won the intermediate year end title in 2017 and made the move to the open class. When the young 12 year old is firing he has the move and consistency. A win in Collie was good for him – Best trick of the comp would have to be Jack Carwardine and his no footed bar twist. So rad. More photos can be found on facebook here.

Bunbury Action Sport Games skatepark competition BMX Scooter skateboard – Round 2 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark series

twitterlinkedinmail

The Action Sports Games is back. After two years of a hiatus it has returned to a new home in Bunbury. It was on a smaller scale to what it was in previous years but this will  give it room to grow just like it did when it first came upon us 6 years ago. The skatepark competition took place on the Saturday with the wake boarding competition taking place on the Sunday. In amongst all of that were some freestyle moto shows. All up Bunbury has some of the best action sports taking place right in the heart of the city. The Action Sports Games skatepark competition was also round 2 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark series. This scooter, skateboard and bmx skatepark competition had $2400 prize money up for grabs and a stack of prizes from Vokul scooters and Minority clothing. The turnout was good with over 60 competitors and hundreds of spectators.

David Pinelli 1st in BMX open class

The beginners all went off first in the morning with some great riding all round in all the disciplines.  The intermediates were up next with some great stand outs like Adam Puffler and Seb Conte who only had one point between them for 1st and 2nd in scooters. In skateboard it was all Levi Pound, an up and comer who has defiantly the potential to make it in the open class. In BMX it was Fabio Canetti and Jayden Cugini who took the 1st and 2nd with some great bmx stunt riding.

The afternoon was all about the hard hitting open class. $500 was to go to first place. From the moment he dropped in you could tell Kody Law was on a mission. He was consistent and had some hard tricks. Taking home the win with 214 points with Kieran Ramsy 204 points for the $200 2nd spot and Jakob Well on 197 points for the $100 3rd place. The skateboard class was a tough one to judge, a lot came down to consistency. It was Brendon Cross who went big and stayed on the most and too the win with 220 points and $500. With only one point behind for the 2nd place and $200 was David Wilson, it was a tough competition. It was great to see Dylan Tomlinson skating hard again taking the 3rd place with 212 ponts and going home with $100. BMX class last to run. Dylan Schmidt was ripping it all day but come comp runs he just was missing that punchy push. A 3rd place, $100 with 218 points. Luke Tooze has been stepping up lately with his riding, he has the power and the ability he just need to refine his style to be a bit more smoother. 2nd place with $200 and 226 points. First place was all David Pinelli. You could see it when he dropped in, precise riding, big tricks and full of flow. $500 richer with a total of 231 points. We hope that for 2019 the Bunbury Action Sports Games will be back even bigger for all to get involved with, so stay posted. Round 4 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark series takes place in Pinjarra so be sure to check our coming events page for more info.

Clockwise from top left – Shane McIver took 5th in the bmx open class but this super whip was one of the best tricks at the competition – Adam Puffler took home another Vokul complete scooter, this one from winning the intermediate scooter class – Rowan Cosh started his bmx journey when he was 3 after seeing a Freestyle Now bmx stunt show, now 12 years later he has some awesome x-ups – Dylan Tomlinson contorted and high on his skateboard, just the way he wants it. More photos can be found on facebook here.
