Great news for all of you attending the Asia Pacific Yo-yo Championships this week in Singapore! The 44FESTA crew will be holding a Triple A Throwdown during the after-party on July 3rd!
The Triple A Throwdown is an almost mythical post-contest tradition, part of the division’s unique culture, with its roots going back over 10 years ago. As a master of both 3A and ducks, we feel that Masanobu Iwata is uniquely suited to host the event for the Asian community!
The crew at 44FESTA was also busy a couple of weeks ago, holding yet another edition of their own event.
44FESTA vol. 18 was held on June 19th, and this time the offstring relay mini-contest had a sweet twist: 403YOYOCLUB in Sendai competed against the 44FESTA teams over Facetime!
Pictured above is Team Seki, winners of the mini-contest, with the Sendai crew sending their regards.
The freestyle contest also had something new: judges provided commentary and advice for the contestants on how to improve their freestyles. We expect to see some substantial improvement among the 44FESTA freestylers in the coming contests!
And speaking of improvement, the big winner of this edition was surprisingly not one of the several sponsored players competing; instead, Tomoki Toyama took home the trophy finishing ahead of the pack!
Check out all freestyle videos here.
Remember to attend the Triple A Throwdown this weekend in Singapore, and the upcoming 44FESTA 3rd Anniversary to be held on August 6th!
See you next time!
