Action Sports Games 2022 – Skateboard – Scooter – BMX competition

twitterlinkedinmail

The 2022 Action Sports Games took place at the Mandurah skatepark after a few delays. The event was scheduled to take place in April but bad weather forced a reschedule. This worked in our benefit as due to Covid having the competition in April would have meant a bunch of restrictions. We would have worked through them to make the event happen, but delaying it a few months meant the restrictions had been lifted and made the event a lot easier to manage and compete in. This year the Action Sports games skatepark competition we set up over two days for all disciplines. Small bowl competition on Saturday, big bowl competition on Sunday with points added together to make the final competition results. It was an interesting concept which saw some great skatepark action.

2022 Action Sports Games open winners, clockwise from top left – women’s skateboard open, mens skateboard open, BMX open, scooter open

Saturday morning started with BMX and an action packed competition with the stand out in the intermediate class being Ronan McCamish. Mad flow big airs. Shae Mathhews was keeping up the pressure with only 1 point between them at the end of Saturday. In the Open class Dylan Schmidt destroyed the small bowl with all of his radical BMX skills taking the top spot from Luke Tooze with 4 points between them.

After BMX was scooter and also was the rain. It rained and then it stopped and almost dried up and then it rained and almost dried up and then it rained. Ohh the torment. It was finally called as a no comp for scooters on Saturday. Skateboard was next and the skatepark dried up. Or did it?

Skateboard was awesome. So many young rippers. The 9 years and under class was stacked with talent and you need to remember the name Otis Sienkewitz, the kid shreds. Just before the open class was to take place it rained, insert sad face here. It stopped raining and it was all hands in for drying up the park with blowers, squeegees, brooms and towels, and it was on. 2022 was the first year to have both open men’s and women’s in skateboard. Action Sports Games skateboard champion Brendon Cross was in full effect to defend his title but the three Evans boys, Cruz, Via and Zen, were there to keep up the pressure. There skating skills have exploded in the past year. And the rain came in again and then it stopped and again it was all hands in for drying up the park with blowers, squeegees, brooms and towels, and it was on. This was repeated many times over the course of the skateboard competition, the competitors were keen to get it done, bit thanks to everyone getting in and doing the work. The women’s open class was super rad with Hailee Roberts being the raddest and ending up 2 points ahead of Mia Kretzer and Lily Heney.

Come Sunday morning it was scooters in the big bowl and no rain in sight. The open class was stacked with riders of all styles but the two top riders Adam Puffler and Mitch Bacon were going head to head with big overhead trick combos. They were both going large and in charge. When the wheels had stopped rolling it was Mitch 2 points ahead of Adam for the win. A super tight competition result.

Clockwise from top left – Mitch Bacon on the upside down tailwhip action – Stanley air from Adam Puffler – There is no no stopping Brenten Waddingham – Jake Budgie winner of the intermediate class – More photos can be found on our Facebook page here

Clockwise from top left – Mia Kretzer took home first place in the first open women’s Action Sports games skateboard competition – Brendon Cross rolling and getting rad – Cruz Evans on the way to a first place trophy and prize money – Watch out for Otis Sienkewitz they are a super rad skater on the up – More photos can be found on our Facebook page here

Skateboard was the highlight of Sunday afternoon, with lots of spectators gathered and the hype was large. In the 9 years and under it was again Otis Sienkewitz destroying the bowl with some large skills and taking the first place for the weekend. Mason Clark and Tayah Payne were rolling with the skills required to take the second and 3td places and we are looking forward to seeing more of their skating skills in the future. In the women’s class Mia Kretzer had the skills to jump ahead of Hailee Roberts by a few points to take the win for the weekend and a 1st place share in the $850 prize purse with Hailee in 2nd and Lily Heney in 3rd place. We need to give a big props to Lola Grislain who took a heavy slam in the deep end to a trip to hospital to get a broken arm mended. The open men’s was so rad with a battle between longtime Action Sports Games champion Brendon Cross and the three Evans boys. Anyone of them had the ability to win and could have if the sequence of tricks were to be working. What was needed to take the win was lots of flow, big tricks and having the consistency to match. This is what Cruz Evans had. The tricks were on. Brendon Cross was trying to match but a little less tricks packed into the run might have been the only reason Brendon got less points. 1st to Cruz Evans, 2nd Brendon Cross with Zen Evans taking 3rd

To finish up the two day competition was BMX. In the beginner class after two days of competition, 4 competition runs, 3 judges, 3 judging categories and more numbers to be added than Steven Hawking could manage there was a tie for firsts and second between Liam Miller and Morgan West, guess it was bound to happen. So a one minute run off was had and judges were to decide who rode better. The win went to Liam who had higher airs and more flow, it was close though. Big props to Bianca Martin who was in the lead at the end of Saturday’s competition but just missed out on a few points and took home the 3rd place. In the intermediate class it was all Ronan McCamish. Winning his first and last intermediate competition. Expect to see him ride the open class next year. The open class was a tight battle between Dylan Schmidt and Luke Tooze. Both had it for the win and to share in the $870 prize money. Both riders went big, though Luke went bigger. Both riders has tricks though Dylan has more. Both riders sent 360 whips over the volcano, Dylan doing it for the first time. Dylan’s second run was so hyped and the energy was electric. Dylan went with the energy and front flipped out of the bowl but just missed the rotation around to wheels. Landing back wheel heavy resulted in also landing on his back. Off to hospital and off the bike for a few months while some fractures heal up. Lukes runs on Sunday were just a bit better than Dylans and was awarded 5 points and then with Dylan riding better on Saturday Luke won the Action Sports games BMX open class for the second year in a row, congratulations.

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.

twitterlinkedinmail

Emmi Rumsa stalls a spiderman in the deep end of the bowl. The rollerskate crew came to Bridgetown in full effect.

When Bridgetown had their skatepark built back in 2008 Freestyle Now was there to help celebrate the opening by hosting a skatepark competition, and it was an honor to return 14 years later to help celebrate the opening of the skatepark upgrade. The new upgrade is rad. It has some great elements and is linked to the old park well, which helps hosting competitions. The Bridgetown competition marked the inclusion of the first official rollerskate competition for Freestyle Now. With skateboard, scooter and BMX already on the schedule adding another discipline made for a super hectic but super rad competition. Rollerskating at skateparks has been steadily growing and now rollerskating is ready for competitions, and all the proof you need for that happened at Bridgetown, the rollerskate crew brought the hype

The Bridgetown / Manjimip area has a great skatepark scene and the crews were stoked on the competition, it was also great to see many past locals returning to where it started for them to participate in the competition. The morning of the competition Freestyle Now hosted a skatepark coaching session which was well attended and many skilled were taught along with what judges are looking for in a competition.

We need to give a big shout out to the Blackwood youth action team, Relationships Australia WA, Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes and the Rotary Club of Bridgetown for supporting the competition and also a massive shout out to the Paper planes store in Bridgetown for supporting the rollerskate competition. They definitely know rollerskates and if your in town be sure to stop in and check out their shop, its super rad.

We would also like to thank all the competitors for attending and making the event as rad as it was. Competitions are great to attend to meet new people and see other riders and their styles of riding. Hope to see you at the next competition soon. Be sure to check our coming events page for more information on all of our coming events.

Balga skatepark festival – scooter skateboard bmx skatepark competition – January 2022

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now hosted the first skatepark competition at the new Balga skatepark. It was a well attended event despite the 40c heat. Competitors were told to stay hydrated and apply sunscreen, a 30 minute maximum warm up and two sixty second runs meant they were not out in the heat for long. Sure it was a hot day but nothing can stop the radness from being rolled out. There was a great turn out of competitors in all the divisions. The structure of the skatepark competition was to have the scooter competition first, announce the results and present prizes, then the skateboard competition and finally the BMX competition. This format worked really well over the course of the day. There was so many prizes at this competition that all competitors took home a prize and in some cases two or three prizes. A big thank you goes to the City of Stirling for all their support on this competition

2021 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships

twitterlinkedinmail

On a fine sunny 13th Day of December 2021 many BMX riders descended onto the Bayswater skatepark to partake in the finals of the 2021 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships. The day was fantastic and well attended by participants and spectators. A great display of BMX freestyle skills was put on by the participants. Currently Western Australia is the only state that is holding BMX freestyle state championships and this being the 3rd one with 2019 and 2020 held prior. The competition at Bayswater was the finals in a 3 competition series. Round 1 was held at the Mandurah Action Sports Games in May and round 2 at the Groundswell festival Zambrero BMX bowl battle in October. Points were awarded to competitors at each of these competitions with the rider with the highest points taking the 1st place and claiming the state champion title. Round 1 and the finals were an even points round with round 2 being an odd points round. Check the  table at the bottom of the post to see the final results and placings.

On the day of the competition there was a riders choice vote for the most improved rider, the raddest rider and future Olympian. Over the course of the year many riders deemed it to be Jake Welhan who has improved the most so he got to claim the medal for that. Well done Jake, your one footer tabletops are the raddest. Ruby Rose Welhan was the third competitor to roll out on the day and midway through her first run took a massive slam of cross bar to the mouth, blood was all over the place as she had really given her lip a trauma of great proportion. After some first aid and ice everyone was shocked to see her out there ready for her second run. This act of radness was definitely the key factor on her winning the raddest rider medallion by riders vote. Well done Ruby Rose, see you at the next competition. It was without a doubt that Bianca Martin won the future Olympian medal. We saw that coming right from the get go. Let hope that the riders vote come true and your determination and radness pays off and Bianca represents Australia in the 2032 Olympics.

Congratulations to all the competitors and BMX appreciated your support. Remember the more you attend competitions the more BMX grows.

Clockwise from top left – Ryan Aquilina took the state championship title. He grew up riding Bayswater skatepark and knows the park better than anyone. his lines and flow were so rad to watch. This boost in the horseshoe is way rad. – Roman Riches-Depiazzi is progressing with his tricks well and and consistency is growing. Sending a tailwhip of the beast is a combination of both. 1st in intermediates and winner of the state championship title. – Ruby Rose Whelhan just before her cross bar slammed into her face, but she was ready for her next run and won the riders vote for the raddest rider – Over 50 year old Gareth Evens jumping the beast on his way to 4th in the over 35’s.

Clockwise from top left – Ray Houghton entered the over 35’s class and won the championship. – Albie Livesley rode in the under 10’s and beginners and blasted high airs in both. He went home as state champion in both. Albie will be moving up to the intermediate class for 2022. – The future Olympian Bianca Martin is the 2021 girls champion and also place 2nd overall in the under 10’s and beginners. Her determination is what future Olympians require. – Jack Quinlan is the youngest competitor at age 5 and he powers through the skatepark like a seasoned professional. Thanks for supporting BMX Jack.
