Freestyle Now bmx stunt show – GRAMS family fun day

twitterlinkedinmail

“That show was really entertaining, thanks for coming to Geraldton”

Freestyle Now was at the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service family fun day in Geraldton to performed some awesome bmx stunt shows. It was a superb day for getting rad. Freestyle Now set up the FN big jump on Maitland park in Geraldton around the other activities taking place on the day. It was a great location but it was windy at the start of the day, but steeting the ramp up so there was a tail wind helped push the Freestyle Now bmx stunt show performers up and over the jump.

Not just one backflip or two backflips, but three backflips. Precision is key when performing bmx stunt like these, it take a high level of professionalism to achieve this level of entertainment.

Freestyle Now put on some really good bmx stunt shows to entertain the crowds. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun JarvisJosh Garwood and Luke Tooze were joined by good friend and all round radical rider Nathan Joson to round out the bmx stunt show performers. Big tricks were being performed and the crowds were putting the energy back into the performance, the more noise the crowd makes the more energy the performers receive. Josh Garwood sent the double backflip in every show, he is really comfortable with them now. Freestyle Now came to roll out the rad and entertain the masses at the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service family fun day and that is what we achieved. When it comes to entertainment Freestyle Now definitely has you covered with a high entertainment value bmx stunt show. Make sure you check out our coming events page to see where the next Freestyle Now stunt shows will be going down. If you would like this type of great entertainment at your next event please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements. A full list of all the stunt shows that Freestyle Now has ever done over the past 33 years can be found on our past stunt show page.

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now performed bmx stunt shows at the 2019 Australian Moto Grand Prix in Phillip Island in Victoria. Be sure to check out the video highlighting all of the radical experiences that we had at the Australian Moto Grand Prix and what the crowds witnessed.  This was the second time Freestyle Now had performed at the Australian Moto grand Prix and the third time at the Phillip Island venue. The first time was the 2017 Australian Moto grand Prix and the second time being the 2019 V8 Super series. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis and Luke Tooze were joined by good friends and all round radical riders Andrew Ahumada and Alec Danelutti. The first day of the 2019 Australian Moto Grand Prix bmx stunt shows were great, with perfect weather conditions, unfortunately it was all downhill from there with Saturday and Sunday being horrendous weather conditions. There were extremely strong winds and intermittent rain down pours which hampered our efforts to perform the bmx stunt shows. We missed out on just 2 of the scheduled 12 bmx stunt shows, as we scaled back the shows to match the weather conditions. Freestyle Now performed at two different venues at the Moto Grand Prix. The first was the main location with our jump box set up and the second location was a smaller show with the use of just a small jump ramp. Freestyle Now came to roll out the rad and entertain the masses at the Australian Moto Grand Prix and that is what we achieved. When it comes to entertainment Freestyle Now definitely has you covered with a high entertainment value bmx stunt show. Make sure you check out our coming events page to see where the next Freestyle Now stunt shows will be going down.

FREESTYLE NOW – GETTING RAD IN THE STREET

twitterlinkedinmail

Practice make perfect as the saying goes. But how do you practice for a bmx stunt show, work on new tricks and gain more confidence? You set up your bmx stunt show ramps in the street and proceed to get rad, and that exactly what we did. We invited Freestyle Now squad members Josh Garwood, Shaun Jarvis, Luke Tooze, Tim Rose and Taj Hamilton to come and get rad in the street. We set up the FN big jump on the street out the front of our house and got rad. We also invited good friends Nathan Joson, Daniel Davis and Kieran Ramsay along for the day to session the FN big jump and throw down some tricks, try new tricks and generally get used to hitting up the FN big jump. What a fun and rad day it was. Be sure to watch the video.

It was great to had veteran Freestyle Now squad member Tim Rose come and have a roll on the FN big jump, Nice table 360.

Getting rad in the streets, be sure to watch the video to see what we got up to.

Luke Tooze worked on some new tricks, this is the result of some of that work. Be sure to watch the video to see what Luke was working on.

Freestyle Now BMX stunt show – Beverley agricultural show video

twitterlinkedinmail

Back in September Freestyle Now performed some bmx stunt shows at the Beverley Agricultural show. It was a great day but very cold. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Jack Carwardine, Luke Tooze,  Taj Hamilton invited Nathan Joson to come and roll out the rad. We also had Tyler Gayski and Daniel Davis come and hang out and perform in some of the shows as well. It defiantly was a great day and some great tricks went down. Freestyle Now performed at the Beverley agricultural show back in 1999 and 20 years later we had the pleasure of returning to roll out the rad. Much had changed in them 20 years. Back in 1999 it was just squad member Shaun Jarvis performing a solo flatland show at the Beverley Agricultural show. Two years later Freestyle Now got the bmx stunt show ramp set up. After 19 years of service the Beverley agricultural show was meant to the last official show on our old bmx stunt show ramp although just a few weeks later the bmx stunt show ramp was used at the Groundswell festival in Scarborough. The FN box as it is know by will get some modifications and a new landing ramp made and will possibly see another 18 years. Lets keep rolling out the RAD. Be sure to check the video.

Make sure you check out our coming events page to see where the next Freestyle Now stunt shows will be going down. If you would like this type of great entertainment at your next event please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements.

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now is all about the rad and sometimes you just have to build stuff to get rad on. No matter where you are at home, at work or in a hardware carpark. Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis did just that recently and built a kicker ramp (launch ramp) in a hardware carpark. Kicker ramps / launch ramps are great, they can fit in a ute or van, can be used at any location, skateparks or streets, river jumping or even stunt shows which was the purpose for this build. Check out the video and get building. Be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel and scope out the 10 years worth of videos
