One Drop team members Paul Dang and Andrew Daugherty show off some tricks with One Drop’s 2014 Benchmark Series.
One Drop has been releasing some great quickie videos from their shop…check out a few below, and then head over to their YouTube channel to watch the rest!
When Jensen Kimmitt visited the One Drop machine shop to check out the first production samples of the Wooly Marmot 2, it was too good of an opportunity not to catch on film. So they shot a new video featuring Jensen, Andrew Daugherty, Will Prater, and Paul Dang. Enjoy!
OneDrop’s Andrew Daugherty laid down a tutorial for his trick “Bowie’s Revenge” for the Terra YoYo Tutorial folks. Enjoy!
Yoyo used is the OneDrop Format:C.
Paul Dang and Andrew Daugherty get in some quality
deli yoyo time in this new video. My favorite part: an actual working pay phone. Seriously? WHERE IN THE HELL ARE THERE STILL WORKING PAYPHONES!?
This video is recommended for audiences 18 years and older.

Because it is my regional contest, The Bay Area Classic is dear to my heart. Currently held in San Francisco, CA, the BAC always manages to bring together many of the world’s greatest players.
Since I personally never compete, I am always a spectator on the sidelines. I don’t mind this. In fact, I embrace it. Very rarely do you see me without my trusty camera. Since 1998, I have shot video at pretty much every yoyo event I’ve gone to. Some people have said that my work has documented the growth and change of yoyoing over the past 15 years. While I don’t feel I’m worthy of such high praise, I do feel that my videos have made a large impact in the yoyo community. That is why when the BAC committee asked me if I was willing to help shoot freestyles for the event, I gladly accepted. This acceptance, however, came with a downside.
This year, BAC ran freestyles throughout the day (as opposed to the end of the day). While this made everything run much smoother, it meant that I was unable to film tricks for a clip video since I would be busy with freestyles all day. I was pretty bummed, as I really enjoy making clip videos. So, to get my “documenting fix” in, I decided to shoot photographs and maybe hope that I could grab some good video footage at the Official BAC BBQ on Sunday.
My initial video plan was to make a video that showed people hanging out at the BAC BBQ. I wanted to make a sequel to last year’s BAC video, but this time focus on the players themselves, instead of their tricks. I wanted to show all of us hanging out, laughing, having a good time, making up and sharing tricks, and relaxing after a tough competition. This was the plan until I got home and realized that the photos I had taken all weekend showed a much more interesting story.
Over the course of the weekend, I shot approximately 2000 photos using a combination of my iPhone, Lumix LX7, and Sony NEX-5N using (primarily) a 8mm fisheye. If you were in my vicinity at any point this weekend, odds are I took your picture.
Inspired by Kohta’s EYYC 2012 video, this BAC 2013 video shows a different side of the contest filled with friends, family, spirits, camaraderie, yoyoing, and kendama.
The California State Yo-Yo Championships is one of the larger yo-yo contests in the United States. Players travel from across the country to show off their amazing tricks and combos, hang out with friends, and compete for thousands of dollars in prize-money.
This video showcases several amazing yoyo (and kendama!) tricks that were filmed at the contest.
