Freestyle Now in the Northwest Australia 2018

Back in June Freestyle Now spent a week in the northwest of Australia to activate several skateparks. Pannawonica, Paraburdoo, Tom Price and Onslow were the target locations. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Ben Thomas invited super skateboard guy Dylan Recce along for the trip to help roll out the rad to all of the locations.

Clockwise from top left – The outback roads are awesome – Tom Price winners are stoked – Jackson was stoked to win some new bars in Paraburdoo – some of the Onslow crew.

Flying into Onslow on the Tuesday morning the first stop was Pannawonica only a few hours drive away. A great session with the local skatepark users, learning new skills and winning some rad prizes, it was a nice fun park to ride for sure. Wednesday morning the 6 hour drive began to Paraburdoo. Driving through the northwest of Australia is beautiful, so much colour and beauty. Arriving at the Parraburdoo skatepark to see lots of skatepark users all keen to get involved in some of the coaching and mini comps. Another fantastic session was had with a long bunnyhop session taking place with Jackson winning a set of Grit scooter handle bars. Jason had moved to Paraburdoo from Mt Isa in Queensland and had remembers the Freestyle Now comps a few years ago that we did in Mt Isa. Thursday morning was a short 1 hour drive to Tom Price. Tom Price park is rad with a good halfpipe. Again in the afternoon we held another skatepark activation session with some skatepark coaching workshops and mini comps. Returning to these skatepark on a regular basis is great when you chat to the riders and they show you their progress they have achieved form the skill development you gave them last time. On Friday after a 5 hour drive Onslow was the next stop. Freestyle Now had been attending Onslow on a semi regular bases over the last few months as part of an ongoing activation session with the community. Friday afternoon was a skatepark coaching session at the awesome Onslow skatepark with the level of skills starting to take hold with the participants. Saturday another activation session took place in the afternoon with a large cache of prizes to be given out. It was great to see the participation level very high with lots of people partaking in multiple disciplines all eager to win some of the rad prizes. Sunday morning was our final session with some more skills being taught and shown to the skatepark participants. Roll on Monday morning and it was the flight out of Onslow to return to Perth. Seven days in the north west was a rad time. Lots of skatepark participants got to win some rad prizes, get autographs and learn new skills, a great success. We would like to thank the Shire of Ashburton, BHP for their support and to all of the people who came to the skateparks to hang out and engage. Check the video below of the trip to know what took place and how the radness was rolled out.

Collie skatepark competition BMX scooter skateboard – Round 3 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark series

twitterlinkedinmail

Round 3 of the 2018 Freestyle Now Western Australian skatepark competition series took place at the Collie skatepark. Freestyle Now has held a skatepark competition there every year for the past few and with each competition they get better and better with more competitors and more progression. There was a great turn out this year with a good amount of skatepark competitors in all groups and classes. It is great to see many competitors travelling to enter the competitions, this is great as it brings many different groups of riders together that not necessarily would get a chance to meet or see others ride. With 53 competitors at the Collie skatepark competition it was one of our larger competitions.  But as normal Freestyle Now got the skatepark competition done without effort and done smoothly. We would also like to thank our supporters Kickass BMXThe 4 skateboard companyModus BearingsGrit scooter, and the Shire of Collie. Round 4 takes place in Pinjarra so be sure to check our coming events page for more info.

Clockwise from top left – Jack Forman won the open skateboard class. After 2 runs both he and Adam Pacyanko were equal points. So it was a mad run off in the bowl, 30 seconds each back and forth until one fell off. Paper scissors rock and it was Adam who went first, run 1 they were good but in run 2 Adam bailed, jack was the winner and went home with the glory and a new 4 skateboard Co. deck – Daniel David whip hopping of the ledge into the bank, Daniel took out the win in the BMX open class but Luke Tooze was keeping the pressure on. Ethan Rowland won the intermediate year end title in 2017 and made the move to the open class. When the young 12 year old is firing he has the move and consistency. A win in Collie was good for him – Best trick of the comp would have to be Jack Carwardine and his no footed bar twist. So rad. More photos can be found on facebook here.
