Freestylers began to realise that there were no rules and no limitations. Different styles were developed such as; lowers, uppers, sitdowns, grounds and blocking. Because of the huge influx of newcomers to the sport, there was a sudden urgency to leave your own mark on the culture, meaning that the difficulty and level quickly rose. The next step for freestyle football to continue evolving and developing was to host live competitions. Battling one on one for national, continental and world titles would give freestylers a new sense of meaning to their daily training. The first major competition of this kind was Red Bull Street Style in 2008, which was hosted in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Sean Garnier won this competition with a style and look that hadn’t been seen in the public eye before. All of this meant that freestyle football was becoming a sport in its own right.
