OMG BEN CONDE WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN WE MISSED YOU BUDDY! Ben Conde finally pops up again with a new video (and it’s been so long we nearly missed it, totally our fault), and we get the double bonus of him hanging out with World YoYo Champion Gentry Stein and European Offstring Champion Quentin Godet, and we get a sneak peek at his new yoyo from YoYoFactory.

Ann Connolly’s latest video blog finds her apartment loaded with yoyo players gearing up for EYYC! Gentry Stein, Andrew Maider, and Palli Gudmundsson all stopped by for dinner (orange chicken w/white rice) and so that Gentry could help Andrew with his freestyle. And then we got a sneak peek of Ann’s new signature edition of the Shutter, with a sweet looking purple-to-pink fade!

CLYW player Ayumu Harada is hilarious and amazing. Both of these traits are on display in his latest video, shot in Prague during EYYC 2016.
Yoyo used is the CLYW Borealis.
You know it’s a good contest when the highlight videos just keep. on. coming!
Check out the latest “I went to EYYC and it was awesome” video, this one from Josh Ciczlow featuring a bunch of GoPro footage that is rough and delightful to watch. The lack of polish on this video actually makes it feel a bit more like you’re clutching a beer and stumbling through the contest yourself, which is pretty cool.
I’m so jealous of everyone who got to attend the 2016 European YoYo Championship this year…it was another fantastic event, run by great people, filled with amazing players. But luckily there have been a slew of great EYYC recap videos (like this one from Jeffrey Pang) and now my homies at CLYW have dropped this fantastic bit of video showing off some amazing tricks and good times. I really need to get out to more contests.
The CLYW team is scattered across eight countries and three continents, so when they get together it’s filled with laughter, camaraderie, great tricks, and good times.
A huge chunk of the team converged on Prague for the 2016 European YoYo Championship. They had a great time. Featuring Petr Kavka, Tessa Piccillo, Palli Gudmundsson, Alec Campbell, Riccardo Fraolini, Ayumu Harada and Nuu Gatowsky. Special guest appearances by Eiji Okuyama, Jake Mulvey and David Stejskal.
(And here’s a Vimeo version…a few people reported problems viewing the YouTube version on mobile.)
This is not a drill, we have a new two minutes worth of tricks from John Ando!!
Filmed during EYYC 2016, this new video should give you a full year’s worth of inspiration. “New Ando video” is on my evergreen list of “Top Five Things You Want To Wake Up To”, along with “Winning Lottery Ticket” and three things I won’t post online. What a fantastic day. Thank you, Joe Black.
Yoyo used is the YoYoFactory Superstar.
Jeffrey Pang never disappoints. Doesn’t matter if we are talking about contest videos, 3D printed yoyos, or the most glorious titanium yoyo releases we’ve ever seen, if you want something done right then you hand it to Jeffrey Pang.
Which brings us to Jeffrey’s latest video, his recap of the 2016 European YoYo Championship. The quality of the footage, the clean editing, the choice of shots….if you want to know how to make a yoyo video, watch this and take notes!
We’ve got another recap video from the 2016 European YoYo Championship, with a totally different look and feel and it’s fantastic to get a truly first-hand look at how different the contest looks to different people. Stay up all night, pound a few beverages, watch them both back-to-back, and then maybe you’ll have a 20% idea of what it was like to be there.
Nothing like a fantastic contest recap video to really make you wish you’d been there, right? Roland Thomas-Biason brings us this amazing 10-minute love letter to the 2016 European YoYo Championship, and it’s going to be the highlight of your day.
