The inimitable Doc Pop brings us a slew of really fun snap tricks in his latest PopCast yoyo vlog. There is a ton of great stuff in here, and snapping the string is always a fun (if slightly unpredictable) way to get something new happening in the middle of a combo. Enjoy!
In this week’s Vlog Cabin from CLYW, Aaron Davis gives up some pretty helpful information about filming yoyo videos. It’s not a definitive primer, but combine that with our post about yoyo videography and you should be in a pretty good position to start upping your game!
Yoyo used is the CLYW Peak 2.
(And here’s the finished video!)
Ann Connolly is moving, and she has too much stuff for her tiny little apartment in Prague. Comment on YouTube for a chance to win something from her collection so she has less stuff to pack!
In CLYW’s second episode of Vlog Cabin we find out the secret to getting sponsored, a few people win t-shirts, and someone else gets a chance to win a CLYW Kayak yoyo prototype.
Ann Connolly gives us a great player-level view of the recent European YoYo Championship with another fun vlog entry from everyone’s favorite American emigrant to the Czech Republic who isn’t named “Hank”.
CLYW launched their “Vlog Cabin” weekly video series! Helmed by team member Aaron Davis, the first episode gives us a layout of what to expect from future installments, catches us up on what Aaron has been doing lately, and gives viewers a chance to win some “old school” Yeti Fist t-shirts from the CLYW archives.
Note: Commenting on this article won’t enter you to win, but if you head to YouTube and comment there, you have a chance!
If you’ve been enjoying the top-notch vlogs from Ann Connolly and Ben Conde, we’ve got another one you’ll dig. Igor Galiev from YoYoFactory Russia is two episodes in and we’re already looking forward to more in the series. If the whole series ends up being Igor flying around and eating ramen, we are 100% on board for that. Check out the first two episodes below, and we’ll post more as they’re uploaded!
Episode 1 ft. Tatiana Ganikhina
Episode 2 ft. Rodrigo Yokota
Spoiler alert: no. Yoyos are not sexy. Not at all.
Ben Conde and Tessa Piccillo went to Venice Beach, California and used their mad yoyo skills to try and get a date. The results are hilarious, at least for those of us watching at home. For Ben and Tessa, the results are maybe a little on the “you’re gonna die alone surrounded by cats” side of things, but we do love them for trying.
Ben & Tessa will be doing a Q&A video next week to answer questions about the video, about Tessa’s new signature yoyo coming out soon (CLYW Kodiak) and anything else you want to ask them. Just leave your questions in the comments and we’ll get them to Ben & Tessa!
Ben Conde is an aspiring YouTube star, traveling through China where no one has access to YouTube. This makes him 83% less special. But we still love him.
Yoyo used is the YoYoFactory Flight.
Ben Conde, our favorite YouTube dork, has quit his day job and is off on an adventure in Asia with YoYoFactory. After that, who knows!?
What we do know is that we’ll definitely be getting a lot more video from him. Check out the first two videos in his new “Around The World” series and be sure to subscribe to his channel for more!
Mike Montgomery has started up a new video blog series called “Let’s Play YoYo” where, from the best I can tell, he stands in front of the camera and tries to work out tricks while talking through the minutia, tips, and tricks of making those tricks happen.
He’s two episodes in so far, and it looks promising. Not exactly the most informative, so it probably shouldn’t be your first stop if you’re looking to actually learn these tricks, but they’re entertaining and at least worth checking out.
