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.
Fist Salud launched a new yoyo brand at EYYC, and we are STOKED. Dubbed “MOWL“, they’ve got one yoyo and some apparel already and we can’t wait to see what else Eiji and his crew come up with. All three colorways of their first yoyo went on sale at EYYC, with the green edition being reserved exclusively for Fist Salud members and close friends. No word on when these will hit larger distribution, but we’ll let you know as soon as we know.

Fist Salud dropped an amazing new Big Dipper video featuring CLYW team member Petr Kavka, and I’ve already watched it six times. In my professional opinion, you should watch it at least four times. I’m a professional, so I have to do this kind of thing more than you, but four should be pretty good for you. Maybe five.
Filmed last week during a pre-EYYC trip to Berlin, this love letter to The Grey City features beautiful filming and editing, and a fantastic visual breakdown of the tricks and style of Czech uber-champ, Petr Kavka. So damn good!
