Prague has one of the biggest and most talented yoyo scenes in the world, so it’s no surprise they should turn out such an incredibly gifted young player like David Stejskal. This latest video from him is pure joy, and after you watch it a dozen times you should leave a comment below so David knows how damn impressed we all are.
Yoyo used is the CLYW Scout.
The Czech yoyo scene is fantastic, and we’ll never get tired of telling you about it. Check out the yearly “Just Tuesday” video from Slusny!
30th of June means end of school and beginning of summer holiday. There is tradition at SLUSNY that yoyo players celebrate this together, they gather together and film yoyo tricks. This time we had players from all over the country and SLUSNY yoyo shop was opened until 10pm. Thanks to everyone for coming and thanks for making the Czech yoyo scene so friendly and awesome 🙂
Turning Point team member Josefina Nesporova has a new video, courtesy of YoYo Store in Prague. Nice work from one of the few sponsored girl players in the scene, and definitely one of the most active.
Yoyo used is the Auldey x Turning Point Positron.
Czech television station Česká Televize has posted a 25-minute documentary about the 2014 World YoYo Contest and the Czech yoyo scene that put it together. A fair chunk of the documentary is, predictably, in the Czech language but it’s a great watch and you can still get a pretty clear idea of what’s going on. Because hey, yoyoing is an international language, right?

The weather here in Cleveland still sucks, but it looks like things are warming up in Prague. Let’s welcome spring with new yoyo tricks from Pepa Trojan, Kuba Velek, Ondra „Debakl“ Schmid, Ferry Procházka, Honza Paprštein, Ondra Horák & Libor Bulíček.
CLYW team member David Kreibich is making some noise this year! Last month he tied for First Place at the Prague YoYo Battle with Matous Tomes, and now we’ve got a crazy fun new video from him! David is blowing through some really burly tricks here, and the stop-motion intro and outro are pretty awesome. Great work, David!
Yoyo used is the Bear vs Man 2 by CLYW.
Perfect Elements, the film production name of Russian super awesome guy Igor Galiev just dropped an epic video featuring nearly 8 minutes of brilliant yoyo tricks from the best players in the world. All you are doing for the next hour is watching this over and over. I’m not even kidding here. Shot at 60fps, so make sure you watch it full screen at full size!
Featuring Ben Conde, Riccardo Fraolini, Yoshi Mikamoto, Justin Weber, James Reed, Charles Haycock, Jensen Kimmitt, Harold Owens III, Petr Kavka, Vashek Kroutil, Kentaro Kimura, Paul Kerbel, Takeshi Matsuura, and more.
Our friends at Slusny know how to throw a yoyo party, and the latest in their “Just Friday” video series makes me want to get back on a plane to Prague! Partly because hey, yoyo party! And partly because of the svickova.
C3YoYoDesign had a huge showing at the World YoYo Contest in Prague, and it looks like their team had a great time filming after the event.
