Bayswater skatepark competition – January 2023


Freestyle Now recently hosted the first full skatepark competition at the new City of Bayswater state-of-the-art skatepark. Skateboarders, BMX riders, scooter enthusiasts, and rollerskaters from all over the state gathered to showcase their skills and compete in the event, which was a major skatepark competition. The competition featured three categories, beginners, intermediate, and open, providing a platform for riders of all ages and skill levels to demonstrate their talents. The new skatepark’s challenging features, including the halfpipe, rails, and bowl, provided an exciting environment for the participants to showcase their unique styles and approaches. It was great to see the return of Adam Pacynko in the skateboard competition, after his time living in England. He amazed everyone with his incredible Halfpipe skills and unique style, demonstrating that he is still one of the top skateboarders in Western Australia. In their first skateboard competition, mother and son Laura and Ollie shared the skatepark for their beginner runs to help both ease the nervousness they were experiencing. Both skated really well and we were stoked to have them in the competition and making memories of their first competition. The competition was a great success and attracted a diverse group of riders, including a strong showing from the rollerskate community. The scooter enthusiasts, BMX riders, and skateboarders also put on a great display of skill and technique, showcasing the incredible talent and dedication of the competitors. Spectators cheered on the riders throughout the event, creating a lively and energetic atmosphere that added to the excitement of the competition. The first full skatepark competition at the new City of Bayswater skatepark was a great showcase of the thriving skatepark culture in Western Australia, and a testament to the importance of providing safe and welcoming spaces for riders of all disciplines to come together and share their passion for skating. Big thanks to the City of Bayswater for supporting the competition, we look forward to seeing what the future holds for the skatepark community in the area. With this successful skatepark competition, we can expect more and more events like this to happen and support the local skate community. Be sure to check our coming events page for more information on future competitions and other events and you can also look back on all of the past competitions on the past competition page here.

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.

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.
