From the beginning, Nehemiah Peterson’s “Tech Creators” project has been a mixed bag of videos, general confusion, and people arguing on Facebook about what “tech” means. Which is pretty typical of just about any yoyo-related anything that gets launched, so by all of our normal measurements that means it’s doing pretty well, lol. But Nehemiah wanted to clear the air a bit about what the project means and where it’s heading, and this video does a pretty decent job of that. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts!
One of the best parts of heading to a contest are the house parties that spring up around them, and the videos we sometimes get from them. PNWR gave us a pile of serious talent crashing at Will Prater’s house, including Tessa Piccillo, Nehemiah Peterson, Alann “Hotpocket” Herrera, and AJ Garcia.
Drew Mrowiec-Barnhart and Nehemiah Peterson make with the good stuff in their first video of 2017! Solid tricks from solid dudes…can’t beat that.
The Scales Collective bring us a new yoyo-related podcast called Scales, and it’s off to a solid start. The Scales Collective is made up of Andrew Bergen, Andrew Maider, Colin Beckford, Dennis Cinquegrani, Ethan Cheung, Keiran Cooper, Mark Mangarin, Patrick Canny, and Zafran Aqil.
If you’ve ever spent even a few minutes talking to Bergy or Mark or any of the rest of the Scales crew about yoyoing then you know those guys are some of the most thoughtful yoyo players in the scene, with perspective beyond their years and a desire to move the scene forward.
Episode 1 finds Bergy sitting down with Nehemiah Peterson, a self-described “tech innovator” who is passionate about the more technical aspects of modern yoyoing.

Sixteen-year-old Nehemiah Peterson of Burlington is only good at one sport.
But in the rising sport of competitive yo-yoing, he’s amazing, what-the-heck-did-he-just-do-and-how-the-heck-did-he-do-it good.
The Burlington High School junior is the reigning state freestyle yo-yo champion in Wisconsin and Ohio. He has just acquired Australian yo-yo manufacturer Werrd as his sponsor. And he’s qualified for the national yo-yo competition in California on Oct. 4.
“This year was a really big year for me,” Peterson said. He won Ohio’s yo-yoing competition, placed third in the Triple Crown of YoYo in Chicago and second in the Midwest regional contest — which qualified him for the nationals.
Just two weeks ago, the owner of Werrd called and offered to sponsor Peterson. He was added to the company’s contest team, the Werrd Wrecking Crew.
The sandy-haired, slightly built teenager — 5 feet 7 inches tall and about 125 pounds soaking wet — isn’t boastful about his obvious skills. But he does exude casual confidence, whether it’s in conversation or the dazzling demonstration video he did for Werrd outside Veterans Terrace, 589 Milwaukee Ave. It ends with Peterson smiling and doing a couple of joyful bounces after what he has just shown.
