Another great new production video from C3 YoYoDesign…these guys are just going non-stop for 2013!
The Kengarden gives us some more wood-on-wood action with this great kendama & bilboquet video.
I’m now officially freshly bummed about my dogs eating my awesome custom bolero that I had made by the guys at The Unit all those years ago. (Anyone know what happened to them? Can’t even find them online anymore.) It was amazing. Had my name carved in the decoration and everything. Now a Google search can’t even find them anymore. Anyone know where I can get a good bolero or drum-style bilboquet?
I post a lot of videos here, but with 365yoyotricks.com putting out a new trick every day it seems a little much to repost those every day. So instead I’m going to do a weekly round-up, which should keeps things more manageable!
The 2013 season features myself, Spencer Berry, Rafael Matsunaga, Jake Bullock, and Darnell Hairston…in addition to as many guest tricks as I can fit in there.
First up we’ve got some early tech 5A from former Trick Innovator of the Year, Jake Bullock.
Spencer Berry brings back Magic Drop with this super flexible repeater
I make things needlessly difficult with this awkward and mostly pointless suicide:
Up-and-comer Darnell Hairston gives us a new trick inspired by Zach Gormley:
I pop in again to take one of Jason Lee’s best-known tricks and make it about 2/3 as cool:
Ed Haponik drops in for a guest spot to make us all reach for a wooden yoyo:
Brazilian National YoYo Master Rafael Matsunaga drops a 10-year old mount and makes it look good again:
And Jake Bullock brings it all down with a crazy-long tech 5A construct that leaves you with a lot of homework to do.
New video from the arctic wilderness of Norway! WE LOVE YOU, PEKKA!
If the fact that it’s an amazing yoyo, and easily one of the best plastic yoyo releases of the past 12 months, wasn’t enough to get you to buy a new Severe from YoYoFactory, this video should do the trick.
First video of 2013 from Poland’s Backspin. I have no idea why that one dude keeps punching the air, but I think he’s having a really good time. Also, the video is titled “Backspin Office” but it’s in a bedroom. So I’m not sure what kind of business they’re in, but I think it involves a lot of napping. Featuring Grzegorz ‘Plamek’ Wójcik, and Piotrek Śmietana.
The Czech yoyo scene is amazing, and it’s easy to forget how old it is. Here a group of players hang out and reflect on their decade as yoyo players and professionals. Hit the CC button at the bottom for subtitles! Featuring Jan Novotný, Vašek Kroutil, Adam Gaszczyk, Peter Kišoň, Pavel Klůs, and Marek Němeček.
This video was just shared to me by Hiroyuki Suzuki (World Champion) and owner of sOMEThING.
It feature Amane Okubo who is just 13 years old! Love to see this kind of talent in yo-yoing at such a young age!
Using the sOMEThING Angle.
New video from Adam Brewster, who is one of those people who has always been known as a “player’s player”. Along with players like Justin Weber, Jon Gates, and Sid, Adam is a pioneer of trick composition and his play just oozes with a completely unique style.
2012 3A National Champion Patrick Borgerding just dropped a great video getting all of his old tricks as he prepares for the 2013 World Yo-Yo Contest.
Using the YoYoFactory Proton!

Patrick Borgerding – 2012 USA 3A National Champion
Thank you to Yoshi Mikamoto, Ian Johnson, and everyone who inspires me daily.
I wanted to get all my old tricks on tape so I can start preparing for Worlds 2013. I hope you enjoy.
Anytime a video of 2008 World Yo-Yo Champion John Ando is posted you know it is worth a watch or two! This is a fun one.
Here John Ando is throwing the new YoYoFactory Proton.
A little video we made one day while waiting for lunch. We arrived 30 minutes before opening and used those 30 minutes well! We enjoyed the meal, hope you enjoy the video!
Videos are starting to show up following the 2013 East Japan Yo-Yo Contest.
You can find many of the prelim routines here:
1st (Tatsuya Fujisaka) and 2nd (Shinji Saito) in 1A videos are here.
Note – Shinji Saito is not only amazing in 2A but has some equally amazing tricks in 1A. Very impressive freestyle!
For the full results from the contest by division see our previous post here.
Great players, great tricks, and Brandon Jackson from Duncan Toys gave us the heads up that Kohta Watanabe is throwing a prototype of his upcoming signature model!
I got Brandon on the horn, and found out that Kohta’s new signature model will be aluminum, and part of the De-Luxxe Series from Duncan, which means it will retail under $60. Tentative release is Spring/Summer 2013 but nothing is finalized. That was all the detail he could spill for the time being, but I know where he lives so I’ll stalk him until I can get more info.
