The school holidays had a soaring start on Saturday, when the world-renowned Freestyle Kings were in action at Wollongong's Crown Street Mall.
Featuring Nowra's Luke McNeil, the Sydney-based freestyle motocross team showcased the sport's hottest moves, performing flips, whips and handstands.
Propelling themselves and their bikes 10 metres into the sky from a 3.8-metre high ramp in the upper Crown Street Mall, the trio of riders twisted and rotated their way through a choreographed routine.
Each of the three shows drew large crowds of several hundred fans.
McNeil, 27, is a former Australian FMX Champion and was Vin Diesel's dirt bike stunt double in the movie xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.
He is joined in the Freestyle Kings line-up by X Games and European World Championships competitor Ryan Brown, along with ESPN - World of X Games show performer Jake Smith.
Freestyle Kings company director Josh Hannah said the company's riders performed all over the world and loved showcasing their sport to the broader public.
"Freestyle motocross is one of the most exciting sports in the world and it has that ability to enthrall people of all ages and backgrounds," he said.
"Everyone dreams of being able to fly and we take that dream to the next level."
Wollongong Central marketing manager Holly Howell said the show was the perfect adrenalin shot to kick off the school holidays.
"The athletic ability of the Freestyle Kings riders is extraordinary and they have amazed audiences everywhere they have performed," she said.
