Freestyle Now BMX stunt shows – Carine High School presentation

twitterlinkedinmail

 

 

Freestyle Now attended the Carine Senior High School for a full day of motivational presentations. The presentations focused on resilience, something all BMX riders will know. Achieving goals is challenging, you have to be focused. There are many hurdles and barriers that can slow you down from achieving your goals, be it with BMX tricks or just in life achievements. You need to know how to jump over the hurdles and push through the barriers. Throughout the course of the day Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Luke Tooze and Josh Garwood not only did some BMX stunt riding but also spoke of their personal barriers they had to overcome with injuries to keep on achieving their goal. Determination is what is required to achieve and each person has a different level of determination, but it’s their determination and they own it. Each person tackles achieving goals differently, and it’s how to go about pushing yourself to reach them goals that creates your resilience. All of these things BMX teaches you.

Shaun Jarvis April 2022 skatepark web play

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle co founder 53 year old Shaun Jarvis has put together another skatepark video from the month of April. During April Freestyle Now hosted many skatepark coaching sessions. Shaun’s plan was to get riding clips at each skatepark visited for coaching and any on the way that there was time to ride. With April being a super busy month some clips were filmed in a matter of minutes while others there was more time to plan a line and work through the run to achieve the best outcome. Shaun looks at skateparks in a different way to see what lines are able to be achieved with his current skill set and riding for the feel of the run. Taking different ideas to different locations give different outcomes of radness.

“That show was fantastic, cant wait to see you perform again” Father of child in line getting an autographed Freestyle Now poster.

 

 

Freestyle Now once again returned to the Gidgegannup show to perform BMX stunt shows. Freestyle Now has performed at the Gidgegannup show many times over the past 35 years and the patrons of the show never let us down with their interaction. For the 2021 show the crowds surpassed all expectations by hyping up the Freestyle Now show riders. So it was good to be back and ready to roll out the rad for the crowds. The crowd interaction is just as important and the BMX show performance, the BMX stunt show performers feel the crowds energy which makes them energized and they end up sending bigger tricks or trying new tricks.

The triple backflip routine in a Freestyle Now stunt show is scary to watch, look how close Dylan is to Luke and Josh. There are no mistakes being made here. The BMX stunt performers know what they are doing, one slip up, someone is going to the dentist.

The day was perfect, no wind, sun was out and the crowds were loud. The performers were feeling the hype from the crowd and they ended up performing some of the most amazing BMX mid air stunts.

Shaun Jarvis October skatepark video

twitterlinkedinmail

Shaun heading down the rail at Kwinana skatepark

Freestyle Now co founder and squadron leader Shaun Jarvis has been riding BMX for 40 years and he is not slowing down just yet at 53 years of age. During September and October Freestyle Now hosted many skatepark coaching sessions and after each of the sessions Shaun set the goal to get clips at each location. Some time there was only a few minutes to work out lines and get the clips done. Shaun explains “BMX freestyle for me is a organic process, what flows is how it is, nothing is forced. Looking at the spot and thinking how can I interact with what’s here and how does my riding fit with the location. Many of the clips are just freestyled, no set plan just as it flowed out. Some took longer than should have and some were a one and done. Over all I’m stoked on the clips.”

Shaun Jarvis – Rolling out the rad in April 2021 video

twitterlinkedinmail

Shaun Jarvis April 2021 bmx edit has some crazy moments.

Freestyle Now co founder and squadron leader Shaun Jarvis has been riding BMX for 40 years and he is not slowing down just yet at 52 years of age. In April he attended many different locations with Freestyle Now hosting coaching sessions and skatepark competitions. The premise behind the video was to get clips at as many of the locations as possible that Freestyle Now visited. In some cases there was not much time to plan its was simply ride and film. Shaun explains “For me riding is an organic process, nothing should be forced, just let it flow. It was a lot of fun filming the clips. Looking at the spot and thinking how can I interact with what’s here and how does my riding fit with the location. Many of the clips are just freestyled, no set plan just as it flowed out. Some took longer than should have and some were a one and done. Over all I’m stoked on the clips, I pushed myself a bit more than normal, took some heavy slams and the outcome is some great memories. Big massive thanks to Kareece Furneyvall and Amos Hadad for their filming, really appreciate it. Stay rad”

2020 Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships

twitterlinkedinmail

The Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships took place at Bayswater skatepark on a weekend in November that saw record rain fall. The competition was meant to take place on the Saturday but leading up to the day rain started to fall and did not stop. The Saturday was so washed out that a canoe would have been better at the skatepark than a bike. Competition goers were notified that if it did not clear up the competition would be scheduled for the Sunday. Saturday night the rain was still falling at a rate that would fill an ocean. Come Sunday morning the rain had stopped but the weather was still looking less than favorable, but it was all systems go for the 2020 Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships.

Bayswater skatepark was picked as the choice of skateparks due to it scheduled for demolition in the new year. It is making way for a multi level carpark for a new train station, the community has great hope for a good replacement in the future. For 18 years Bayswater skatepark has seen its fair share of radness and hosted its fair number of competitions and it was only fitting that a final competition would be a great way to finish up the life of Bayswater skatepark (it has now had a reprieve and due for demolition in 2022)

Luke Tooze the 2020 Western Australian state champion in the open class.

Clockwise from top left – Albie Livesley rode really well in the under 10’s class. The 7 year old has got some rad skills. 2020 state champion. – Imogen Denison took the win and the championship title in the girls / womans class but only just from her mother Rachel Denison. This was a great competition to see mother and daughter riding together. – Roman Depiazzi is now the current bmx freestyle Western Australian state champion in the beginners class. He is definitely moving forward into the intermediates soon enough if he keeps on progressing. – The 2020 state champion in the intermediates is Ronan McCamish. Such a rad kid who loves bmx and like to do no handers of the beast box at Bayswater.

Clockwise from top left – Justin Edwards has been riding Bayswater skatepark for years, we wonder how many times he has done no handers over the beast? over 35’s state champion. – At 52 Freestyle Now co founder Shaun Jarvis is the over 45’s Western Australian state champion. Double pegin down the kinker ledge. – Ryan Aquilina is a living legend of Bayswater skatepark. He has rode there almost every day over the past 18 years. We are sure he could do this tyre tap on the wall with his eyes shut. Ryan rode so good but just missed a few points and took home the number 2 placing. – Luke Tooze has been on a mission this past year. Winning the Scarborough beach bmx bowl battle only a few weeks before winning the Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships. This 720 over the beast was super clean and Luke took the well deserving state championship.

BMX freestyle skatepark is now an official Olympic sport. It was meant to be rolling in the 2020 Olympics but due to world events it’s hoped that the Olympics will run in 2021. This was the second Western Australian state championships that Freestyle Now has hosted (2019 being the first). There were a good number of riders who entered the competition which catered for many ages and skill levels. Under 10’s, Girls /womans, beginners, intermediates, over 35’s, over 45’s and the open class. The level of riding is always growing and it was good to see the level of riding in the under 10’s. In the girls/womans it was most awesome to have daughter and mother take out the 1st and 2nd places, big thanks and congratulations to Imogen and Rachel Denison. We are unsure if that has ever happened in a bmx competition before.

There were lots of different styles of riding going down over the different classes, some riders going wide open and some riders being super technical along with a mix between them all. All up it was a great representation of the riding that is currently taking place in Western Australia. The riding in the groups was all really close. Each competitor had two runs with only their best run being taken into account for their points. A big congratulation to all the riders who entered and especially to the riders who took out the number 1 positions. Freestyle Now hopes to roll out the 2021 Western Australian state championships soon.

We would like to thank our supporters for the 2020 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships, Colony BMXLocal BMX, and Aus Cycling.

2020 DownUnderGround – Australian BMX flatland championships

twitterlinkedinmail

2020 DownUnderGround , the Australian BMX flatland championships number 12 was a video only contest, open to all riders around the world. With the current global situation with Covid -19 travel restrictions are in place around the world and earlier this year within Australia. This made organizing a national contest problematic. We could not set a date as we never knew if or when travel restrictions would ease up in Australia and or if riders would even want to travel interstate with the current conditions. As DownUnderGround has had a video round as part of the contest for many years it was a easy decision to make 2020 a video only contest. To make the video even more special we had our contest judges live announce over the video after they had judged the video contest and the riders were placed in the video according to their contest placement. Thanks to Shaun Jarvis, Paul Chamberlain and Joe Cicman and James McGraw.

The format of the contest was easy, riders submit their video as if they were riding at a contest. No edits or multiple clips, one continual run, no less than 1 minute and no more than 2 minutes. Each rider’s video was judged by three judges using the DownUnderGround contest format. Each judge scores each category out of 20 points;
Difficulty – How difficult and complex the tricks are.
Consistency – How consistent the rider is in pulling the tricks within the contest run.(feet down, foot dab, smoothness of run)
Variety – This is left up to the judge’s discretion on what their own interpretation of variety is. This can take into account range of techniques (spinning, turbining, rolling, scuffing, stationary, pumping…) variety and range of tricks, types of tricks, combinations of tricks, front and rear wheel usage, backwards and forwards.
The best possible score from one judge per video run is 60 points. The three judges points are added together to determine the winner and place getters.

Due to the nature of the contest we knew we would get many international riders entering than Australian riders. This just made the contest so much more rad. The level of riding around the world is amazing. Some many great riders being able to showcase their riding and their riding spot. Nothing but pure radness in the video.

Congratulations to Freestyle Now squad members for their placings – Shaun Jarvis 18th experts , Lee Kirkman 12th opens, Paul Chamberlain 7th opens.

Thank you to DownUnderGound supporters – Freestyle Now , Colony BMX

On the journey many of the famous skateparks at Busselton, Dunsbrough, Capel and Margaret River were ridden and clips were obtained. The results of the skatepark trip is contained in this video below. Be sure to give the Josh Garwood section a watch and feel the pain of the journey to achieve the goal of accomplishment. Bmx riding is always fun when you travel to ride with friends.

The Augusta bmx coaching session was a super fun day with lots of new skills learnt and new levels of confidence gained by all the participants.
