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.

Freestyle Now bmx stunt show – Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now recently performed some bmx stunt shows at the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix, one of the biggest motor sport events taking place in Australia.

David Pinelli rotates a 360 no hander for the Australian Moto Grand Prix crowd.

The Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix takes place in Victoria on Phillip Island. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and David Pinelli were also joined by guest riders Brock Horneman and Dean Anderson. Veteran squad member Georg Molnar was also there to handle some of the announcing duties. George has not announced a Freestyle Now bmx stunt show for almost 30 years so it was great to hear his voice over the P.A. once again calling the tricks and amping up the crowd. Freestyle now performed bmx stunt shows over the 3 days at the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix. The weather was not show friendly over the 3 days. The first day there were clear skies but strong winds and day two and three the rain decided to play games. Throughout the 3 days and 12 bmx stunt shows Freestyle Now were able to perform all 12 shows. We dodged the rain the best we could with some shows starting in the dry only to be called off halfway through and other shows were striped back to the minimum due to the ramps being wet. Whatever the case it shows the true professionalism of Freestyle Now plus Brock said “We cant disappoint the crowds, they came to see a show a show is what they will see”. The crowds were stoked to see the bmx stunt shows for sure. Be sure to check out our coming events page to see where and when Freestyle now will be rolling out the rad next.

Some raw video footage of the Freestyle Now bmx stunt shows at the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix.

Clockwise from top left – Brock Horneman captured in mid double tailwhip while the rain clouds start to approach – Shaun Jarvis took to some stationary flatland skills when the ramps became too wet to ride.

Australind skatepark opening day

twitterlinkedinmail

Some people believe making a skatepark is easy and happens relatively quickly. How wrong they are. Back in June 2010 the seed was planted to upgrade the Australind skatepark. This was not an easy task. The Shire of Harvey wanted the community to raise $50000 to help build the park. Right away Freestyle Now was in there to help with attending fundraising days and getting donations at our events and matching dollar for dollar those donations. It was hard work for the community to really get this awesome skatepark built. After 6 years the final go ahead was give but some of the government agency funding had been cut from what was initially going to be given. So it was a quick retry on design to try to accommodate a $1.3 million park down to $900000. The final design and build works well. Construction started early this year, seven years after it was seed was planted.

Nigel Heidt who was 10 and Dwight Eckersley who was 11 at the time were not happy with the inadequate portable skatepark that was in Australind. Dwight and Nigel, along with Nigel’s mother Sabine Heidt, put together a petition which they presented to the Harvey council with more than 400 signatures. If you want something you need to go and get it, and that is what they did.

Freestyle Now was there at the opening day celebrations to roll out the rad but unfortunately so was the rain. When the rain stopped we dried up parts of the park and let the radness flow. It rain again and we did it all over again and again and again. Nothing was going to stop the flow of the radness from the Freestyle Now squad and the locals attending the opening day celebrations.

 
Squad member Shaun Jarvis had a radio interview on ABC South West about the skatepark and that interview provides the soundtrack to some of the opening day celebration video footage,  be sure to give it a listen and watch. Some photos of the day can also be found on our facebook page here

Freestyle Now school assembly – Bruce Rock school

twitterlinkedinmail

Recently Freestyle Now travelled out to Bruce Rock for a school assembly to give a motivational presentation to the students. Squad members Shaun Jarvis, David Pinelli, Matt Adkins and Jarrod Murfit, were on hand to roll out the rad and show them that through dedication and sacrifice you can reach your goals.

Through dedication and sacrifice you can reach your goals.

Matt Adkins lets loose for the students with a cannonball over the jump box

BMX stunt riding is an excellent example of what perseverance is all about. When learning a new trick, a rider must be willing to devote their time, energy and effort. They must be able to calculate risks, find out how to correct mistakes and pick themselves back up when they fail. Just as it took Thomas Eddison 1000 tries to create the electric light bulb it took Matt Adkins 99 attempts before he learned how to do a front flip – this is the type of drive, dedication and singular focus that is required for a rider to master a stunt. Coming to understand that to be truly successful you must learn from your failures can be broadened out to other parts of your life.

Clockwise from top left – Shaun Jarvis brought much of his life experience to the presentation along with some awesome bmx flatland skills like this backyard trick – David Pinelli spins a 360 without his hands on the grips – Matt Adkins mid front flip showing that anything in life is possible if you’re willing to learn the skill – Matt Adkins arms are aerodynamic for more air lift.

At the school assembly presentation the squad also talked about leadership to the students. Leadership can take many different paths, and an example that Shaun gave was on how someone else can have an enormous impact on your life and they don’t even know it! Shaun helped a young BMX rider set up his bike 25 years ago. Later that rider made contact with Shaun via social media saying that he never forget the time that Shaun helped him. He was so pumped and happy about the time that Shaun dedicated to him that it made him want to keep riding. Given that it was 25 years ago Shaun can’t remember that moment but the other person can! Our actions and what seem like small insignificant moments of leadership can have far-reaching consequences. When Shaun was a young BMX racer, he met the Godfather of freestyle Bob Haro. The opportunity to meet one of the BMX industries heroes and be encouraged by him was the main reason Shaun started Freestyle Now. If you were to ask Bob Haro about that moment 33 years ago, he would not remember, but Shaun does. The message to students was that leadership does not necessarily mean being a manager or CEO – it is about your everyday actions and how they can affect people for their entire lives – so strive to be a positive influence!

Presenting these positive, meaningful messages and demonstrating the most radical heart-stopping BMX stunt riding that the students have ever seen is what Freestyle Now is all about. When you combine these motivational stories with back flips, front flips, 360 spins and so many other crazy epic stunts those messages stay with students for a long time and Freestyle Now is grateful to bring that radness to life to our young generations.
