The 2015 Brazil National YoYo Contest has come and gone, while along with new champions that means we have a new clip video! Check out this fun look at one of the most loved yoyo scenes in the world, complete with great tricks and some really nice animation!
The recent Israel National YoYo Contest had some excellent local talent, as well as some big-name visitors from out of town! CLYW’s Petr Kavka and Backspin’s Piotrek Smietana were both in attendance, and when they weren’t swimming or partying they took to the roof of their hostel for some filming. Enjoy!
Be sure to support Piotrek’s “We Are Throwers” documentary campaign on IndieGoGo if you haven’t already!

Luke Finnell and Ibrahim Rahman, better known as second-tier superheros LUKE & IBS, have dropped another pile of gold in our laps with their latest video. Shot as a promo for the “so good it almost doesn’t need promotion” new signature model for Gentry Stein, this new video is a gentle reminder that
one day, Luke and Ibrahim will destroy the Earth and rule us all Luke and Ibrahim are awesome.
