Freestyle Now bmx scooter skateboard stunt show – CMEFU family picnic day

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now recently performed some awesome stunt shows at the CMEFU family picnic day. Taking place at the Melbourne show grounds the set up was indoors. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Lee Kirkman were there onn the day to roll out the rad along with good friends Jai Bradley and Dean Anderson (bmx), Matty Cerovolo and Billy Watts (scooter) and Josh Dunstone (skateboard). The weather on the day was a very wintery day in the middle of summer with rain coming down in buckets. It was great to have such a perfect indoor location to perform in. the crowds were loving it and getting into the shows with great crowd interaction.

Lee Kirkman has the best no foot Indian air seat grab in the business.

When the last jumps were performed in the stunt show the crowd erupted in so much noise, seeing the riders hit the jump box in a series of back flips, front flips, back flips, front flips and back flips. This was defiantly a crowd pleaser. Freestyle Now performed some radical stunt shows for the families that had gathered and attended the CMEFU family picnic day. Be sure to check out our coming events page to see where and when Freestyle now will be rolling out the rad next.

Freestyle Now at Onslow skatepark activation

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now recently travelled to Onslow to host some skatepark coaching workshops. Freestyle Now promotes inclusiveness at all of our skatepark activation sessions and Onslow was no different. The skatepark coaching sessions were open to all participants of any age for bmx, scooter and skateboard. Squad members Shaun Jarvis and Kieran Ramsay invited rad skater Adam Pacynko along for the journey. The trio played the “Game of life” on this trip, like on all trips, with Adam doing the most pushups. Lots of radness went down at the skatepark during the few days the trio was there. It is great to travel to remote areas and engage with skatepark users, getting them to learn new skills and help them roll out the rad. Freestyle Now hosts many skatepark activation sessions with bmx, skateboard and scooter skatepark coaching workshops, jam sessions and private sessions. If you want more information please contact Freestyle Now.

 

Shaun Jarvis nohanded fakie stall.

Freestyle Now squad members are always there to help skatepark users of any skill level and of any age. Inclusiveness is the key important factor for all Freestyle Now events.

Freestyle Now skatepark coaching and competition in Karratha

twitterlinkedinmail

For the past several years Freestyle Now has been returning to the Pilbara and the City of Karratha to run some skatepark coaching sessions and skatepark competitions. We have met many skatepark participants over the years and we have watched them grow, progress and achieve. When you see that moment when a first trick is pulled or a goal has been achieved for the first time it is an amazing thing to witness. Although it may be very basic for the more advanced rider, it was a time that you too were just like that mastering the basics. This is one of the joys of hosting skatepark coaching sessions.

 
Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Mitch Harris and Hudson Goodchild were sent on the task to roll out in the City of Karratha. The trio visited Dampier, Wickham, Roebourne and Karratha skateparks for some skatepark coaching workshops and Nichol West skatepark to host round 11 of the Freestyle Now Western Australian Skatepark competition series. this video highlights some of the moments when the skatepark participants achieved their first time goals as well as some skatepark action from Shaun, Mitch and Hudson. A big thank you to the Youth Shed crew in Karratha.

Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Dylan Schmidt and Kieran Ramsay were there for 3 days for some skatepark coaching sessions and skatepark competition.
