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.

Freestyle Now recently performed some bmx and scooter stunt shows at the 84th Heytesbury Agricultural show in country Victoria. The day turned out to one of the hottest days the Victoria had seen in all in months. Freestyle now squad member Lee Kirkman led the charge at the Heytesbury Agricultural show along with good friends Billy Watts on scooter and Luke Tooze who made the track from Perth just so he could help roll out the rad at the show along with Melbourne riders Matt Stowe and Liam Joyce to round out the shows performers. The entertainment value was high with 360’s backflips and frontflips taking place over the four stunt shows. Freestyle Now got some great feedback with show organizer Michelle Holmes said “The entertainment was really good, particularly Freestyle Now stunts shows”.

Freestyle Now was recently at the Ficifolia Festival in Drouin Victoria to manage a bmx, scooter and skateboard skatepark competition. Drouin is a town in the West Gippsland region about 90 kilometres east of Melbourne. The Ficifolia Festival was a great event with a massive street parade lots of entertainment and stalls. With $800 prize money up for grabs thanks to the event sponsors, the competition was on in the open class to win some of that cash. Drouin Cycles gave out some rad prizes for the afternoon competition as well with all competitors taking home prizes. Freestyle Now squad member Lee Kirkman entered into the competition and took home the 3rd place, his first skatepark competition in about 4 years, so it was great to see him shred the park. There was only a short time frame to run the competition in the afternoon to fit within the Ficifolia Festival schedule but in true professional manner Freestyle Now got the competition done in time with great accolades from the competitors, festival organizers and parents. It was great to see the Drouin skatepark competition building in participation levels with many new competitors coming to help roll out the rad. There was a great turnout from the town at the competition with one head count at 400 spectators. Work is underway for the 2020 Drouin skatepark competition so don’t miss it as once again its going to be a rad time. Thank you to the event sponsors Bendigo and Districts Bank, Drouin Cycles, McDonald’s Drouin, The Committee for Drouin and Michael Robinson Photography.

Bassendean Gravit8 festival – skatepark competition bmx scooter skateboard

twitterlinkedinmail

The 2019 Bassendean Gravit8 festival was an awesome event. For about 7 years now the Gravit8 festival has been a highlight on the events calendar, if you have never been you defiantly have been missing out. The Bassendean youth services team really put 100% into organizing the event. The sound system is amazing with the DJ really working the tunes. The timing schedule on the skatepark competition is really important with only four hours to get through fifty competitors. As always Freestyle Now managed the night in true professionalism and got through the competitors as well as hosting jam sessions between the competition rounds, it was a jam packed night without a doubt. The energy from the night defiantly helps the skatepark competition participants be more hyped up to go harder in their competition runs. So much great riding went down. A few stand outs were Freestyle Now newest reserves squad member Dylan Reese taking the win in skateboard open but also showing how talented he is by taking the win in bmx intermediate as well. It was also great to see Freestyle Now recruits squad member CJ Martinez skating and taking the second in skateboard intermediate. Jack Graham Arho who has only been to a few Freestyle Now skatepark coaching sessions took the win in skateboard  beginner ad won a new skateboard deck from The 4 skateboard co, he was so stoked and left that night with a massive smile on his face. Chris Coglais had entered into bmx intermediate in what was his first competition but as soon as he dropped in we could tell he defiantly needed to move up to the open class which he did and took home the 2nd place. When 2020 comes around and you see the Gravit8 festival scheduled in make sure you attend even just as a spectator as the energy and vibe at the event is nothing but pure radness.
A big thank you to the Town of Bassendean for making it happen and also to our supporters Colony BMX , The 4 skateboard co, Modus bearings and grit scooters. Our next skatepark competition takes place in Bunbury as part of the Action Sports Games on the 17th march so be sure to check our coming events page for more info.
