On Australia day in Perth Freestyle Now performed some awesome bmx stunt shows at the City of Perth Sky Show. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Dylan Schmidt and David Pinelli along with reserves squad member Jack Carwardine and new recruits squad member Taj Hamilton in his first stunt show, were all there to roll out the rad. We also invited good friend Luke Tooze to join in displaying the radness. During the afternoon Langley Park was slowly filling up with spectators for the Sky Show. As the afternoon moved on more and more people filled the fence line to see the show. Freestyle Now performed some awesome bmx stunt shows. The crowds were loving it and getting into the shows with great crowd interaction. When asked they made lots of noise to get the Freestyle Now bmx stunt show performers pumped and ready to hit up the large tricks. Freestyle Now performed some radical bmx stunt shows for the families that had gathered and attended the City of Perth Sky Show. 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 bmx stunt show – Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now recently performed some bmx stunt shows at the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix, one of the biggest motor sport events taking place in Australia.

David Pinelli rotates a 360 no hander for the Australian Moto Grand Prix crowd.

The Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix takes place in Victoria on Phillip Island. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and David Pinelli were also joined by guest riders Brock Horneman and Dean Anderson. Veteran squad member Georg Molnar was also there to handle some of the announcing duties. George has not announced a Freestyle Now bmx stunt show for almost 30 years so it was great to hear his voice over the P.A. once again calling the tricks and amping up the crowd. Freestyle now performed bmx stunt shows over the 3 days at the Michelin Australian Moto Grand Prix. The weather was not show friendly over the 3 days. The first day there were clear skies but strong winds and day two and three the rain decided to play games. Throughout the 3 days and 12 bmx stunt shows Freestyle Now were able to perform all 12 shows. We dodged the rain the best we could with some shows starting in the dry only to be called off halfway through and other shows were striped back to the minimum due to the ramps being wet. Whatever the case it shows the true professionalism of Freestyle Now plus Brock said “We cant disappoint the crowds, they came to see a show a show is what they will see”. The crowds were stoked to see the bmx stunt shows for sure. 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.

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.

The game of life was played on the trip with Kieran Ramsay being the winner. (if you say the word “mine” you have to drop and give 10 pushups)Watch the video for more information on this.

Freestyle Now squad members – DownUnderGround video contest

twitterlinkedinmail

BMX flatland in Australia is rather small compared to all the other disciplines of bmx riding. BMX flatland Australia hosts a competition series called DownUnderGround which is now into series 9. In the series there are 3 contests, 2 physical rounds and one video round. This year the video round was the first round of the series with round 2 taking place on the 10th of June at the Bridport Aerodrome in Tasmania. Round 3 is scheduled for Melbourne on the 25th of November.

BMX flatland is where a rider only uses their bike and body to perform stunts or tricks without any other obstacle to assist with their stunts or tricks, like ramp riding

Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Paul Chamberlain and Lee Kirkman all submitted a video entry into round 1 of DownUnderGround. Its with great pleasure to know that our squad members placed well in the contest. Paul placed 2nd in the open class with Lee taking 3rd in the open class and Shaun taking out the 3rd place in the expert class. Check the below videos to see the radness.

Freestyle Now school assembly – Bruce Rock school

twitterlinkedinmail

Recently Freestyle Now travelled out to Bruce Rock for a school assembly to give a motivational presentation to the students. Squad members Shaun Jarvis, David Pinelli, Matt Adkins and Jarrod Murfit, were on hand to roll out the rad and show them that through dedication and sacrifice you can reach your goals.

Through dedication and sacrifice you can reach your goals.

Matt Adkins lets loose for the students with a cannonball over the jump box

BMX stunt riding is an excellent example of what perseverance is all about. When learning a new trick, a rider must be willing to devote their time, energy and effort. They must be able to calculate risks, find out how to correct mistakes and pick themselves back up when they fail. Just as it took Thomas Eddison 1000 tries to create the electric light bulb it took Matt Adkins 99 attempts before he learned how to do a front flip – this is the type of drive, dedication and singular focus that is required for a rider to master a stunt. Coming to understand that to be truly successful you must learn from your failures can be broadened out to other parts of your life.

Clockwise from top left – Shaun Jarvis brought much of his life experience to the presentation along with some awesome bmx flatland skills like this backyard trick – David Pinelli spins a 360 without his hands on the grips – Matt Adkins mid front flip showing that anything in life is possible if you’re willing to learn the skill – Matt Adkins arms are aerodynamic for more air lift.

At the school assembly presentation the squad also talked about leadership to the students. Leadership can take many different paths, and an example that Shaun gave was on how someone else can have an enormous impact on your life and they don’t even know it! Shaun helped a young BMX rider set up his bike 25 years ago. Later that rider made contact with Shaun via social media saying that he never forget the time that Shaun helped him. He was so pumped and happy about the time that Shaun dedicated to him that it made him want to keep riding. Given that it was 25 years ago Shaun can’t remember that moment but the other person can! Our actions and what seem like small insignificant moments of leadership can have far-reaching consequences. When Shaun was a young BMX racer, he met the Godfather of freestyle Bob Haro. The opportunity to meet one of the BMX industries heroes and be encouraged by him was the main reason Shaun started Freestyle Now. If you were to ask Bob Haro about that moment 33 years ago, he would not remember, but Shaun does. The message to students was that leadership does not necessarily mean being a manager or CEO – it is about your everyday actions and how they can affect people for their entire lives – so strive to be a positive influence!

Presenting these positive, meaningful messages and demonstrating the most radical heart-stopping BMX stunt riding that the students have ever seen is what Freestyle Now is all about. When you combine these motivational stories with back flips, front flips, 360 spins and so many other crazy epic stunts those messages stay with students for a long time and Freestyle Now is grateful to bring that radness to life to our young generations.
