Freestyle Now – Tapping Primary school – School assembly presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now was invited to attend the Tapping primary school to host a school assembly presentation. The focus of the presentation was around the importance of safety equipment. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis , Luke Tooze and Josh Garwood invited Kieran Ramsey to come and roll out the rad with them to Tapping primary school. It was a hectic morning as we had set up on the basket ball courts and about to start the first presentation when it started to rain. We packed down the ramp and airbag lander and moved it into the inside location to escape the rain. Once set up inside there was no more rain for the day, but we knew that would happen. We had a smaller set up with no platform on the ramp, but the Freestyle Now squad did not let that slow them down. Freestyle Now put on two presentations for the students over the day. School shows are always the loudest and Tapping primary did not disappoint. The message we gave about safety was well received by the students.

A Freestyle Now school assembly presentation can be tailored to suite whatever message the school is currently delivering to its students. If you are wanting Freestyle Now to come to your school for a school assembly please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements.

Not just one backflip or two backflips, but three backflips. Precision is key when performing bmx stunt like these, it take a high level of professionalism to achieve this level of entertainment.

Freestyle Now put on some really good bmx stunt shows to entertain the crowds. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun JarvisJosh Garwood and Luke Tooze were joined by good friend and all round radical rider Nathan Joson to round out the bmx stunt show performers. Big tricks were being performed and the crowds were putting the energy back into the performance, the more noise the crowd makes the more energy the performers receive. Josh Garwood sent the double backflip in every show, he is really comfortable with them now. Freestyle Now came to roll out the rad and entertain the masses at the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service family fun day and that is what we achieved.

Practice make perfect as the saying goes. But how do you practice for a bmx stunt show, work on new tricks and gain more confidence? You set up your bmx stunt show ramps in the street and proceed to get rad, and that exactly what we did. We invited Freestyle Now squad members Josh Garwood, Shaun Jarvis, Luke Tooze, Tim Rose and Taj Hamilton to come and get rad in the street. We set up the FN big jump on the street out the front of our house and got rad. We also invited good friends Nathan Joson, Daniel Davis and Kieran Ramsay along for the day to session the FN big jump and throw down some tricks, try new tricks and generally get used to hitting up the FN big jump. What a fun and rad day it was. Be sure to watch the video.

It was great to had veteran Freestyle Now squad member Tim Rose come and have a roll on the FN big jump, Nice table 360.

Getting rad in the streets, be sure to watch the video to see what we got up to.

2019 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships

twitterlinkedinmail

BMX freestyle is now an official Olympic sport. There are many different types of bmx freestyle riding from street, skatepark, flatland, vert and dirt but it is the skatepark style is the one that is now in the Olympics. Freestyle Now decided it was time to run an official Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships for skatepark riders. The location was the Belmont skatepark due to its openness and functionality along with having a good jump box. There were a great number of riders who entered the competition which catered for many ages and skill levels. Under 10’s, beginners, intermediates, over 35’s and the open class.

Freestyle Now squad members placed we in the competition with Josh Garwood taking 2nd in open even though he went to hospital with a concussion and new squad member Luke Tooze taking 3rd in the open class along with Jack Carwardine placing 11th. Co founder of Freestyle Now Shaun Jarvis was leading the over 35’s class but took the 2nd place in the finals and recruits squad member Taj Hamilton took the 6th place in the intermediate class

The week leading up to the competition day was rain all week. But come competition day the sun was out although it was windy, but this did die down toward the end of the day. Many bmx riders turned up to roll out the rad and to try to take the prestigious number 1 in Western Australia title. There were lots of different styles of riding going down over the different classes, some riders going wide open and some riders being super technical along with a mix between them all. All up it was a great representation of the riding that is currently taking place in Western Australia. The riding in the groups was all really close as you can tell by the points awarded to each rider, each competitor had two runs with only their best run being taken into account for their points. Riders were judged on difficulty, diversity and consistency with a maximum score from one judge of 60 points, and when you add up all the numbers for rider to be only one or two points the difference you know it’s a close competition. A big congratulation to all the riders who entered and especially to the riders who took out the number 1 positions. Freestyle Now hopes to roll out the state championships into other states around Australia over the next year. We would like to thank our supporters for the 2019 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships, Colony BMX, Local BMX, Mad Orse Industries, City of Belmont and Bmx sports Western Australia along with the sports governing body Freestyle BMX Australia.
