twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now was once again at the Perth Royal Show performing some great entertaining bmx stunt shows. Teaming up with ASP FMX and Eljay entertainment, the Freestyle Now bmx stunt squad really threw down the radness and got the bmx stunts working for the large crowds. With a stunt show at lunch time with only one jump ramp and a stunt show in the evening with two jump ramps and 10 bmx riders the Perth Royal Show patrons truly were exposed to the amazing performances that Freestyle Now can put together for any venue and location. On night 6 the weather took a bit of a turn and the rain started to drizzle down, but the riders just wanted to keep riding. After the show Dylan Schmidt said, “They came for a show and we could not disappoint” it was crazy seeing the riders getting rad while you could see the light rain coming down. If you’re looking for some exciting entertainment then please contact Freestyle Now to discuss your requirements.

Freestyle Now work experience guy

twitterlinkedinmail

This week at Freestyle Now we have had the pleasure of having Oli Lane from Ellenbrook Christian collage attend our offices for his year 10 work experience.  He has been helping around the office with many tasks and working on getting the ramps for the Rockingham Invite Competition ready to shred on the day. Freestyle Now are happy to have school students in for work experience and teach the younger generation how to run a business and roll out the radness. Oli had this to say about his week with Freestyle Now

“I came from Bindoon just to do my work experience with Freestyle Now, I love what they do with the comps and demos and it’s awesome. It’s interesting to learn that things don’t just happen they take lots of planning!!! On Monday we went for a quick ride at Carine skatepark and I got a few little clips there with my gopro. I’ve spent my mornings in the office sorting out the invites for the Rockingham Invite Competition and trying to ride when I can. In the arvos I’ve been helping build ramps and painting them up, they’re a really nice size and look fun to ride can’t wait to try them.  This has been a hell of a good week filled with, jokes, coffee, work and… coffee all mixed into one, it has been a rad week at the Freestyle Now office but as they say all good things come to an end. Thanks for a good time.”

Freestyle Now recently entertained the masses with a bmx flatland show at The Light in Winter, winter solstice festival in Melbourne. Federation Square was a vibrant place with light displays and entertainment for many to see. Good friends and Melbourne radsters Grant Cruise and Shane Badman were there to throw down some good hi tech flatland riding and dazzle the big crowds with fast spins and crazy rolling tricks. It’s good to know that many unexpecting people got exposed to flatland bmx.

twitterlinkedinmail

Last weekend Freestyle Now performed a bmx flatland show at The Light in Winter event at Federation square in Melbourne. Freestyle Now invited good friends and total shredders Grant Cruise and Ben Moran along to the show to perform some crazy bmx flatland tricks to the roaming crowds. It’s Melbourne so of course it had been raining so the performance area was a bit damp but like the rad riders Ben and Grant are they did not disappoint the crowds. Freestyle Now will be at the Light in Winter event again on the 21st June to celebrate the winter solstice with local and international artists, performances and exhibitions. If you’re in the area make your way there and take in all the magnificent light displays along with all the performance.

Shaun Jarvis – May 2014 travel video part 2

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis is having a busy month of May. From heading to Canberra and Melbourne earlier in the month he has just got back from a trip to Brisbane and a long long drive out to Cunnamulla to host a coaching session session for the locals. This weekend Shaun along with squad members Hudson Goodchild and David Pinelli head to Exmouth to get rad with the locals and host another skatepark coaching session. Shaun sent in a few words about his Queensland trip and had put together another travel video.

“The trip out to Cunnamulla was one of the most fun and hectic trips I’ve ever been on. Hectic was the order of the weekend. With an 840kms drive out to Cunnamulla we had planned to set off early, haha plans what are they!!! Along for this trip was Brisbane locals Bradley Spann, Manuel Kovacs and Alex Haim. At 4am I got a phone call from Manuel saying he has a flat in his car and can I pick him up…. So much for leaving Brisbane at 5:30am. After picking up Alex 2 hours late we roll out at 7:30am. The drive was long and we got in to Cunnamulla at 7:30pm just in time to get dinner at the pub before it closed. The coaching session at the Cunnamulla skatepark was one of the raddest, with the youth there so receptive. It was a long day. Sunday morning came around and with not much sleep thanks to the other guests in the hotel we departed back to Brisbane. So about 30kms out of town we get a flat. Some travelers stopped to make sure we were all good, we were, and as they drove off they said have a good day, Brad replied “thanks it can’t get any worse”… wrong. After driving for just over an hour we realized we were not heading east but travelling north. North to Charleville, 200kms north. We did have a rad session at the skatepark though so it was kinda worth it. Arriving back in risbane and dropping off the other guys I got to my hotel at 1am, so Sunday was a long day. Coming back to Perth my flight was delayed so I got an earlier flight, via Sydney, which resulted in a mad rush to get my bike packed. Getting on the plane with only minutes to spare full of sweat form the mad rush.The trip its self was so much fun and Brad, Manuel and Alex were so much fun to hang with and they did such a rad job at the skatepark coaching sessions.  I made another trip video, hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the weekend. Stay rad”.

Shaun Jarvis – May 2014 travel video part 1

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis is having a busy month of May. He recently came back from a 10 day trip to Canberra and Melbourne. With only two days in his home town of Perth he has ventured off to Brisbane where he is currently in the remote town of Cunnamulla some 840kms west of Brisbane. Next weekend Shaun along with Hudson Goodchild and David Pinelli will be travelling up to Exmouth in the northwest to host a coaching session. Shaun sent in a few words about his part 1 travel video for the month of may.

“Canberra was good fun. I headed out to Tumut about 200kms from Canberra to host a skatepark coaching session taking some Canberra shredders with me to assist with the session, was good to have Mike Ross, Troy Harradine and Jayden Poidevin along with me. It was so cold that it started to have light snow towards the end of the session. Spent a day just hanging in Canberra before heading to Melbourne where I spent a week just hanging out with friends and riding, it was cold but a great week. I always seem to film stuff with my good camera and never really edit the footage together so for the month of May I decided to film using my phone and edit it on the go with a phone edit app. The result is this video. It’s dodgey and raw but shows what I did and saw and rode with over my 10 day trip. For me it’s something I can look back on with fond memories. I’m working on my next one from my Cunnamulla trip and will also have one done from our Exmouth trip later next week. Stay rad and have fun.”
