Josh Garwood getting it flat in the pool

Freestyle Now recently headed out to Meekatharra for a skatepark activation session. On the trip was Freestyle now boss man Shaun Jarvis, Josh Garwood who was just getting back into riding after his fractured vertebrates 9 weeks before the trip after the doctor gave the all clear to go and scooter radster Tyler Jennings. Guest skateboard shredder Sam Orme was also invited on the trip. The first day was taken up by the 9 hour drive out to Meekatharra. Day two was the opening of the skatepark and a skatepark activation coaching session. The Freestyle Now helped the locals learn new skills and gain more confidence in bmx, scooter and skateboard activities, so they can have more fun at the skatepark. Day three was another skatepark activation coaching  session with more skills being taken up. On day four it was the long journey home again. Definitely was a great trip full of good times and much radness. The local skatepark participants out in Meekatharra were stoked as were the Freestyle Now crew. On the trip the crew even managed to find an old pool on the trip that Josh and Sam got to roll in, definitely a highlight of the trip. The Meekatharra skatepark is great and if you are ever travelling the 770kms out that was into the remote Western Australian outback be sure to stop and have a roll.

Josh boosting a tabletop on a full pipe that was never meant to be ridden.

Freestyle Now recently travelled to Port Hedland for a week of youth engagement, skatepark coaching and to host a skatepark competition. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Karee Furnevall and Josh Garwood  were given the task to roll out the rad over the week. Skatepark coaching workshops took place at the Port Hedland skatepark as well as the super large South Hedland skatepark. It is great to help others learn how to roll out the rad. On the Monday the squad got to hang out at the Port Hedland BMX track. On the Wednesday to squad travelled out to the Warralong community and did a school presentation session. It was a great experience and we hope to be back there again soon. The skatepark coaching workshops defiantly helped many skatepark participants learn more skill which they all put to use in the competition on the Friday night. It was also great to see the Evans family from down in Perth, skating in Port Hedland and attending the competition. Cruz, Via and Zen are all rad skaters.

 

Shaun, Karee and Josh captured some of the radness that took place on the Port Hedland trip. Be sure to check out the video

Bunbury Action Sports Games – skateboard scooter bmx competition

twitterlinkedinmail

The Bunbury Action Sports Games was another rad competition. 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 $2500 up for grabs, first place winning $500 in the open class and $3000 worth of prizes plenty of competitors were keen. With an early 9:30am start for the beginners class it was going to be a long day. The beginner class had some great riding and good number of competitors. The bmx class had 11 competitors which was great to see. Roary O’Donnell took the win in the scooter beginner class and also took home a brand new complete scooter thanks to Grit scooters.

The intermediate class was large with a total of 31 competitors. Again it was the bmx class that had the largest numbers with 14 riders all willing to get rad and win prizes. Kieran Ramsay who has made the move from scooters to bmx took out the win in the bmx intermediate class and taking home a nice new colony sweet took frame for the win. It was great to see Jayden Cugini taking the 2nd place. 3rd place went to Chris Efi in his 2nd ever competition. The intermediate bmx class was awesome to watch so much great riding. Levi Pound was the guy who skated well enough to take the win in the intermediate skateboard class. Watch for him to up it in the next few years. Scooter intermediate was all about Kash Toft. He rode well and consistent. A good range of tricks helps with getting more points and thanks to Root Industries he took home a brand new complete scooter.

Left to right – A three way tie for first in scooter open,  Tyler Jennings, Kody Law and Jakob Wells the level of riding was off the hook.

The open class was insane, so much awesome riding went down. In the open scooter it was a three way tie for first between Jakob Wells, Kody Law and Tyler Jennings. The riders decided that they would just split the winning prize purse between them instead of having a final run off. With each judge having three categories to judge from, difficulty, diversity and consistency and then each rider having two runs and then with three judges it’s a lot of numbers to add up and for there to be a three way tie is crazy. That’s how insane the riding was.

In skate open is was Steve Murray all the way, although Jack Foreman was chasing him. Steve hit all the ramps with power and speed, his flow was on point so much so that he had to vomit after each of his runs, he was that sick at skating. Jack Foreman has been skating for a while now and it’s great to see how much progress he has had. Bmx open was going to be a tough competition. Fabio Canettii was on fire in his first run and it looked like he was going to be the man to beat, but something happened in his second run and he dint seem to have the same fire, which brought his points down. Luke Tooze gave Dylan Schmidt a run for his money but it was competition experience that prevailed for Dylan to take the win and the $500 cash first place. Luke his some great lines but just could not get the same smoothness as Dylan through the park. Jayden Roadley his some crazy tech lines through the park but his consistency was just a bit off, great riding from Jayden though.

Steven Murry took the win at the 2019 Bunbury Action Sports Games in the open skateboard division.

All up the Bunbury Action Sports Games was a great success. With 61 competitors and about 300 spectators the day was long and rad. We need to give a big shout out to the competition supporters, Colony BMX, Modus Bearings, The 4 skateboard company, Root Industries, Grit Scooters, Rip N Dip, Death Lens and of course the Action Sports Games. Our next bmx, skateboard and scooter skatepark competition takes place at the Pinjarra skatepark 13th April 2019, more info can be found on our coming events page.
