YoYoJam released a clip video from their recent Minnesota Tour. It’s really great to see them getting into retail-based promotions…here’s hoping we see more from them!
Hey guys, it’s Ben Conde. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out to see the team on tour — this past week was an incredible experience for us. You can expect more tours in the future! Please enjoy this montage I made of the Minnesota Tour. Thanks!
Jensen Kimmitt dropped a fixed axle video! Not only are the tricks pretty good, but Jensen reminds us once again that he’s just really damn entertaining to watch. Filmed by Charles Haycock, and according to the video comments, the yoyo used is ” a 70mm red oak/ash design I’ve been tinkering with for awhile. Charles turned out this one on da lathe.”
CLYW’s Mark Mangarin gets whip-happy in this new video. Mark is easily one of the most creative players in the game right now, and everything he releases is packed with ideas and inspiration.
What’s Bergy got cooking? I know he’s been practicing because he offered to set me up with some tricks for 365yoyotricks.com…but then he didn’t, so he’s been stockpiling tricks. Probably awesome tricks. Probably lots of them.
Whatcha got, Bergy?
Ilya Shaposhnikov from the St. Petersburg YoYo School put together a tutorial video for János Karancz trick, “Fisherman’s Bastion Tower”. Enjoy!
Check out the excerpt below, and follow the link for the full article.
Harrison Lee had just been practicing the yo-yo for four months when he entered his first competition, the Western Canadian Regionals. He finished second. He was 11 years old.
Two years later, the Burnaby boy is ranked fourth in Canada, he’s sponsored by a yo-yo manufacturer and he has his own line of specially coloured yo-yos.
Lee’s slender fingers dance through the neon-coloured string, weaving it in intricate patters as the grey and blue-splattered yo-yo spins perpetually at its end. He’s putting in two to three hours a day designing and perfecting new tricks that will bedazzle the four judges during his two-minute session at Saturday’s third Western Canadian Regionals, to be held at the National Nikkei Museum and Heritage Centre.
“Whenever I’m not eating or sleeping, I’m yo-yoing,” says Lee, who owns 40 yo-yos, many of them prizes from competitions he’s won since taking up the hobby.

Paul Kerbel and Luis Enrique continue their unrelenting battle for 1A supremacy in Mexico, and this year Paul Kerbel ended the Mexican contest season ahead of YoYoFactory teammate Luis Enrique.
Luis Enrique defeated Paul recently at BAC 2013 and 44CLASH 2012, but Paul ended up ahead at BAC2012 and the last three contests in Mexico – Winter 2012, Nationals 2013, and now Summer 2013.
Last year Paul failed to make finals at Worlds, but his three season titles in Mexico assured his spot among the Nationals seeds this year.
There’s little doubt those two are among the strongest contenders for the World title, and here’s a taste of what to expect in August:
The Mexican seed is decided by adding up the scores from the three major contests in the country, and here’s how it went down this season:
|Player||Winter 2012||National 2013||Summer 2013||Total||Rank|
|Sergio Daniel Licona||52.45||131.4||61.4||245.25||5|
I’m proud to introduce Steller Features. For whatever reason, I find myself in the lucky position of having people who consistently give my videos views and publicity. I felt that I should take advantage of such a privilege by featuring other yo-yoers who are under the radar of many others in the yo-yo community, in hopes of giving them the publicity they truly deserve. Each Feature will come along with a “Player Profile” found below describing the featured player. There is no set time-frame on when these release other than when I get the chance to film and edit. Please be sure to share, these yo-yoers have earned it.
PLAYER PROFILE | Nick de Valpine:
When this video was shot, Nick had just passed his 2.5 year mark in yo-yoing, and was 11 years old. Allow me to reiterate the fact that NICK WAS 11 YEARS OLD when I filmed him at the 2013 Massachusetts State Yo-Yo Contest. Nick is one of the most endearing and enthusiastic yo-yoers in the sport today. Plain and simple, Nick just loves to yo-yo, and his attitude and tricks show that this type of mentality gets you quite far. He is a fan favorite at every northeast event in the United States because of his consistent presence on stage, as well as his incredibly technical yo-yo tricks. You’ll always find his name high on the scoring sheet as a result. Nick is ahead of his time, and I can’t wait to see where yo-yoing takes him in the future. At the moment, Nick is not affiliated with any yo-yo companies, but I personally don’t expect his availability to last very long. The yo-yo used was a CLYW Arctic Circle.

Riccardo Fraolini, one of Italy’s most creative players, just dropped this 1A clip showcasing his new signature throw “The Seed” from XCube. The video is a dreamy first person POV smorgasbord of neat concepts and saturated colors, with everything from behind-the-back finger spin transitions to a one-handed frog in a bag. If you want more European yo-yo fun, you should definitely check out the R-Special videos on Riccardo’s youtube channel.
