Bunbury Action Sports Games 2020 – BMX scooter skateboard competition

twitterlinkedinmail

Every year competitors look forward to the Action Sports Games and this year was no different. One of the biggest scooter, skateboard and bmx skatepark competition held in Western Australia it had an awesome turn out. With a prize purse of $2000 up for grabs and $2500 worth of prizes plenty of competitors were keen.

The level of competition is forever increasing and it’s great to see younger competitors come up from the beginner into the intermediates and then start knocking on the 1st place spots in the open class. Once again the level from all the competitors was high and it was great to see some of the competitors who had been attending our coaching sessions also competing in the beginners class. There was plenty of action throughout the day but one of the most action packed was the bmx open class. Three riders were all on fire, Luke Tooze, Fabio Connetti and Jordan Minchin, all three with different riding styles and trick and skatepark lines. This one was a hard one to judge and it was not until all the points were tallied up that we got to see how close they were. With only 2 points between 3rd and 1st it was one of the most tightest competitions we have ever had. 1st went to Luke Tooze, 295 points, 2nd Fabio Connetti, 294 points and 3rd Jordan Minchin, 293 points. With 3 judges scoring over three categories and having two runs that’s a lot of numbers to add up and to get scores that close is super rad.

Other notable competitors were Rowan Cosh riding in scooter and bmx, Brax O’brien who attended the Collie coaching sessions and skated well, Kash Toft moving up to scooter open and taking 3rd, Jeremy Wilson and Tyler Gayski in the intermediate bmx class and Albie Livesley and his progression. Thank you to everyone who attended and come and got rad. We need to give a big shout out to the competition supporters, Colony BMXModus BearingsThe 4 skateboard companyRoot IndustriesGrit Scooters and of course the Action Sports Games.

Freestyle Now rolling out the rad at the Australian Moto Grand Prix

With the Phillip Island race circuit in the background and the crowd behind the camera Freestyle Now squad members Luke Tooze and Shaun Jarvis team up for some radical action on the small kicker ramp.

Freestyle Now recently performed bmx stunt shows at the 2019 Australian Moto Grand Prix in Phillip Island in Victoria. This was the second time Freestyle Now had performed at the Australian Moto grand Prix and the third time at the Phillip Island venue. The first time was the 2017 Australian Moto grand Prix and the second time being the 2019 V8 Super series. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Luke Tooze were joined by good friends and all round radical riders Andrew Ahumada and Alec Danelutti. The first day of the 2019 Australian Moto Grand Prix bmx stunt shows were great, with perfect weather conditions, unfortunately it was all downhill from there with Saturday and Sunday being horrendous weather conditions. There were extremely strong winds and intermittent rain down pours which hampered our efforts to perform the bmx stunt shows. We missed out on just 2 of the scheduled 12 bmx stunt shows, as we scaled back the shows to match the weather conditions. Freestyle Now performed at two different venues at the Moto Grand Prix. The first was the main location with our jump box set up and the second location was a smaller show with the use of just a small jump ramp. Freestyle Now came to roll out the rad and entertain the masses at the Australian Moto Grand Prix and that is what we achieved. When it comes to entertainment Freestyle Now definitely has you covered with a high entertainment value bmx stunt show. Make sure you check out our coming events page to see where the next Freestyle Now stunt shows will be going down. If you would like this type of great entertainment at your next event please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements. A full list of all the stunt shows that Freestyle Now has ever done over the past 32 years can be found on our past stunt show page.

Clockwise from top left – Andrew Ahumada mid backflip on the Friday when weather conditions were prime – Alec Danelutti with a massive 360 no hander – Andrew Ahumada flairs while Shaun Jarvis balances a mod hopper in the inclement weather condition on the Saturday – Andrew Ahumada likes to fly like a bird.

FREESTYLE NOW – GETTING RAD IN THE STREET

twitterlinkedinmail

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.

Luke Tooze worked on some new tricks, this is the result of some of that work. Be sure to watch the video to see what Luke was working on.

When we needed a fill in rider for our bmx stunt shows Luke’s name came up a few times as a rider that had the right attitude and radness. He brought such a rad energy that he got invited a few more times as a guest rider. Luke gets it. With all the right elements, radness, super keen, unique riding style, great energy, easy going and knows how to entertain a crowd during a stunt show. Luke is also progressing his riding and tricks with recently learning double backflips that he is keen to bring to the Freestyle Now bmx stunt shows.
