SLVRANDBLK Films brings us an intense trick dump from Andy Jones right before they head to Iceland for the 2017 World YoYo Contest. Andy. My dude. You are fantastic.
Andy Jones dropped this great first-person video in stylish black-and-white with some killer new tricks. There’s a lot of fun stuff in here, and the head cam shot means it’s basically a minute and a half tutorial! Sweet!
Yoyo used is the Advance Scout by CLYW.
The UK yoyo scene is small but mighty, and they do a lot more than just swear and blame Langley for everything. Andy Jones (a Welsh player, but we won’t hold that against him) dropped a video with some really solid, smooth play. Not a lot of groundbreaking concepts, but everything is put together nicely and executed really well. This is a great example of how to take a lot of existing concepts and make them truly your own…players, take note!
Yoyo used is the XCube Seed.
CLYW has posted the final results of their video contest!
Something about CLYW really brought out the best in people, because the entries for this contest are some of the best we’ve ever seen for any yoyo video contest. Winners are below, along with the commentary from CLYW. Congratulations, everyone!
First off I wanted to thank everyone for putting the time into creating such wonderful works of art! We were blown away by all of the amazing videos that came in for Round 1, and the top 10 did not disappoint for Round 2. Our favourite video was CMAK’s, it had everything we were looking for and more. It had a great story and was visually stunning. WOW!
CMAK is the winner of the full 2014 Collection, we’ll be shipping him an Arctic Circle: 2nd Expedition, Gnarwhal 2, Bonfire and Puffin 2. Once we get back from holidays we’ll start shipping everything out to our contestants.
For Most Inspiring, we have the Trinity YoYo Club’s video. It was incredibly touching and definitely catches what yoyoing is all about to all of us. We really enjoyed your use of the skateboarding quote. The Trinity YoYo Club has done so much for yoyoing this year and has helped inspire a whole new generation of throwers. Hats off to you guys!
For Most Dope, we have Andy Jones’ video. I think this has happened to all of us, you’re completely in the zone feeling like a yoyo rockstar and then BAM taken right back down with the words How old are you? You sure brought it Andy and we’re super impressed with how good you’re getting. WOW!
For Slickest Tricks, we have Chase Baxter. You brought the tricks, well done!
Each of these honourable mentions will be getting a brand new Bonfire along with a Yeti for winning Round 1. Thanks so much guys!
Yuji Kelly, Ann Connolly, Palli, and Andy Jones.
Nothing else to say on that, really. Just watch, enjoy, and then go practice so you can get caught up.
