Freestyle Now recently hosted a BMX, scooter and skateboard incursion for students at the York Primary and High school. The school arranged the sessions with the goal of motivating and inspiring students while promoting the advantages of physical activity for both mental and physical health.

Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Oben McHoull, and Amos Hadad attended the day to provide coaching and guidance to students of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced riders. Freestyle Now supplied a few small ramps and a ledge, along with skateboards, scooters and bikes.  The squad members showed off an array of BMX stunts, skateboard tricks, and scooter moves, motivating the students to attempt them themselves. The engagement sessions were a huge success, with students expressing their enthusiasm and excitement for the sports. Some students even showed potential for becoming skilled riders in the future. Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis had this to say to the students “We do this not because it is easy, but because it is hard. We fail over and over again, until we succeed. When you learn something new, it is yours, you own it!” Emily Hughes from the Department of Education said “Thank you for coming out, the kids absolutely loved it! We hope to be able to get you back out in the future.” The event was an excellent opportunity for students to explore their interests and gain new abilities. Similar activities can have a positive impact on student engagement and motivation.

Helmet safety ain’t no joke – Be sure your helmet is a certified helmet for your safety


Helmets save lives. Wearing a helmet at the skatepark is vital. Wearing the proper helmet is vital. Wearing the helmet properly is vital. Shaun Jarvis runs through helmet information that can either give you a trip to the hospital, stop your riding session for the day, have someone wipe your bum and feed you for the rest of your life, give you a bit of a headache, or let you keep on riding for the day. There is no point wearing an ice cream container with padding, it’s not going to do much. Remember your choice can not only affect you but those around you in the moment and in the long term. Safety never takes a holiday so be sure you have the right helmet that fits right.

Australian’s Got Talent – Freestyle Now stunt show


Freestyle Now took to the Australian’s Got Talent stage with pure raw freestyle energy.

Freestyle Now got to perform a stunt shows for Australia’s Got Talent auditions. We assembled a rad crew consisting of Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Luke Tooze along with Gonzalo Bellanti, Chris James, Matty Ceravolo, Zeth Bennett and Nathan Philps. The crew hit the AGT stage with pure raw freestyle energy. Filming of the show took place in Sydney at the end of June 2022 and unfortunately, we did not make it to the next round. There were many challenges around the set up on stage, difficult blind run up, challenging run off and a full change to the performance routine due to having to make the jump smaller, which was a challenge in itself to work that one out. We managed to run through the show routine only twice. Once on the set up outside which was perfect conditions and once on stage. Had we had more stage rehearsal time then who knows our performance might have been tighter. We rolled out the rad and made people stoked and motivated, we fulfilled what has been our main goal for the last 35 years. Big thanks to AGT for getting us on the show, we all had a blast. The on-air audition was cut up a bit and did not show the entire 8 minutes, but what was shown we are stoked on. Thanks to the team of performers we had, you all are rad.


Be sure to check out our performance which aired on Channel 7
