Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Louise Alling­ham

The pro-rider crew from Freestyle Now are hit­ting Onslow, Tom Price and Parabur­doo next week for three fun-filled skat­ing events.

Shaun Jarvis, Ben Thomas and Match Har­ris will head to Tom Price and Parabur­doo for the Night­fall Sum­mer Skate night and Onslow for a skate night un­der the lights.

The Night­fall Sum­mer Skate night will be from 4pm-7pm at Tom Price skate park on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 25 and Parabur­doo skate park on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 26.

Jarvis said kids of all ages and skat­ing abil­ity were wel­come to join in on the fun with their scoot­ers, BMX bikes or skate­boards.

“If there’s a three-year-old who comes up to us we try and fa­cil­i­tate the best we can, but we may not al­ways be able to,” he said.

“It’s about hav­ing fun and en­gag­ing with the youth there and help­ing them build their skills.”

Jarvis has had many trips to the Pil­bara with the Freestyle Now crew and said he looks for­ward to each visit to see how young rid­ers have pro­gressed.

“There are some re­ally good rid­ers in the area and from what we’ve seen and who we’ve en­gaged with there are some re­ally good shred­ders who re­ally kick it hard,” he said.

“We’ll be happy to go back and see how the progress of those guys (is).”

To cel­e­brate the open­ing of the brand new BHP Bil­li­ton Fish­bowl on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 24, the Shire of Ash­bur­ton are putting on a free fam­ily-friendly event, Skate Night Un­der the Lights with skat­ing, tunes and food.
