“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.

A triple backflip is always a crowd pleasing favorite. Luke and Josh out in front with Dylan sending the final flip

Freestyle Now was at the 2021 Mandurah Boat, Caravan, 4wd and camping show to entertain the patrons with some awesome BMX stunt shows. Over 3 days Freestyle Now rolled out the rad with some serious BMX stunt shows. On day one Freestyle Now squad members Shaun JarvisJosh Garwood and Luke Tooze were also joined by Dylan Schmidt to perform BMX stunt shows. The conditions were perfect and the radness was rolled out. On day two we had another list of riders come in for the stunt shows as the Brunswick Junction agricultural show was on the same day and Shaun, Josh, Luke and Dylan we heading there to perform. Freestyle Now squad members Jack Carwardine, Albie Livesley and Taj Hamilton were joined by Nathan Dobbie, Ryan Aqulina and Michael Pidgeon. This crew was in charge of rolling out the rad and that is something they did. Lots of rad stunts were performed and lots of noise was made for the crowds, just like a BMX stunt show should be. One day three Shaun, Josh, Luke and Dylan returned but Josh’s ankle was feeling a little damaged from the Brunswick show, so Michael Pidgeon and Dempsey attend to help out with their radness. This gave the shows something on the next level with 5 rider backflip trains the crowds were so loud. Day three was definitely one of the raddest show days for sure. One of the comments we had from the event organizers was that the stall holders that we set up around the BMX stunt show site could still discuss business with customers while the BMX stunt shows were happening due to the bikes not making any noise, unlike the freestyle motocross shows they have has in the past.

Tackling mental health with BMX – Freestyle Now RU OK day at Mindarie Collage

twitterlinkedinmail

Freestyle Now attended the Mindarie Collage for a school assembly presentation as part of R U OK day. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Josh Garwood and Luke Tooze were at the school to roll out the rad.. The presentations main focus was to talk about mental health. Due to the rain on the day the set up took place in the undercover area. Just before the lunch break the secondary school students got a chance to come and watch the BMX show. The BMX riders performed some great BMX stunts and tricks that the students were super hyped with. In the middle of the presentation Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis took to the microphone to talk about the importance of speaking and listening about mental health. It is important to speak about how you are feeling but it is also just as important to listen when someone is not feeling mentally well. When your friend or family member talks to you about how they are feeling it does not always mean you need to fix their problems. Sometimes just speaking to someone who is listening helps. Please remember to ask people R U OK if you can see a change in their mannerisms. Sometimes all it takes to help someone is to ask R U OK.

 

A Freestyle Now school assembly presentation can be tailored to suite whatever message the school is currently delivering to its students. If you want Freestyle Now to come to your school for a school assembly please get in contact with Freestyle Now with your requirements. A full list of all the stunt shows that Freestyle Now has done since 1986 can be found on our past stunt show page.

2021 DownUnderGround – The Australian BMX flatland championships

twitterlinkedinmail

2021 DownUnderGround, the Australian BMX flatland championships number 13 was a video only contest due to travel restriction within Australia. For whatever reason the number of riders who entered was smaller than past years even though the concept was changed this year so riders could submit multiple clips in their video up to 2 ½ minutes. We did get two new riders entered into the beginner class that we have not seen in an Australian flatland competition, this was super rad. As we did for last year we invited the judges, Paul Chamberlain and Joe Cicman and James McGraw, to offer commentary, competition run reviews and general banter on the final video. Freestyle Now squad member Shaun Jarvis took out the 2nd place in the expert class.

 

Competition format – Each judge scores each category out of 20 points;
Difficulty – How difficult and complex the tricks are.
Flow / smoothness – A riders ability to control their bike and make the combos flow.
Variety – Range of tricks, types of tricks, combinations of tricks, front and rear wheel usage, backwards and forwards. This can take into account range of techniques (spinning, turbining, rolling, scuffing, stationary, pumping…)

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.

Thank you to DownUnderGound supporters – Freestyle Now , Colony BMX

Kareece Furneyvall moves up to full Freestyle Now squad status

twitterlinkedinmail

Welcome to full squad status Kareece Furneyvall.

Welcome to full squad status Kareece Furneyvall. Starting out as a recruit in August 2017 Kareece has not only progressed with their riding, carving out their own unique style, but also they have grown into the one of the most amazing coaches and mentors Freestyle Now has. Kareece has a natural ability to engage with participants at skateparks and understand how to break down tricks to their basic form and explain each step to participants. Being a coach is not an easy task, it takes a certain understanding not only on the way to break down the mechanics of tricks but also the understanding that each participant has different abilities to comprehend. Kareece has all of this dialed. When it comes to scooter riding Kareece has their own style. After riding for 12 years and trying to follow the same as many other riders and not having fun, it took a scooter ride around the Swan river to really find what the reason for riding was all about, the fun and enjoyment. After this ride their riding style shifted to have more flow, more technical type of tricks. The fun of riding came back. You can see when Kareece is riding they don’t care about impressing anyone except themselves, this makes a good rider. Their riding is for them and judgment of others is irrelevant. What a lot of people don’t know is that Kareece also skates and rides BMX as well. While he enjoys both of these, scooters are their jam and we can see a scooter lifer every time Kareece steps on their scooter.

The love of manuals is evident in Kareece’s riding, like this Xup manual at belmont

Kareece suffered a broken collarbone on October 2020. After a coaching session had finished he went for a quick ride at the skatepark only to be too comfortable on a finger whip and forgetting the cardinal rule with riding, never take tricks for granted. Landing wrong and rolling onto their shoulder a distinct sound was heard and straight away knew it was a collarbone. The recovery was impeded by a doctor dislodging the bones which resulted in surgery to screw it all back together. Coming in to March 2021 was when Kareece really started to find that mojo to be in scooter mode again. The below video is that journey of ”getting my mojo back”

 

 

“I’m incredibly stoked to officially on full Freestyle Now squad status. I’m so grateful to be able to finally release this video! The first clip was filmed in March of 2021 just a few months after breaking my collarbone, and I set myself a goal to collect some clips from every skatepark and spot I get to travel to through coaching. Freestyle Now has always been there for me, whether it was participating in the comps and learning from the sessions, or being able to live out my passion and be continuously inspired by my environment. Freestyle Now has given me the confidence to freestyle the now in my own unique way, being able to work with passion and spontaneity. Without Freestyle Now my recovery wouldn’t of been the same and I think this video shows how impactful that support was for me ‘getting my mojo back’! Words can’t express my gratitude to Freestyle Now and the opportunities given to me, thank you for the last five years and I look forward to rolling out the rad forever!” Kareece

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.”
