Josh Yee brings us a great highlights reel from this past weekend’s 2017 California State YoYo Championship. Featuring a ton of players, including Alann “Hotpocket” Herrera, Daniel Flaherty, Zac Rubino, Michael Ferdico, Keiran Cooper, Ernest Kahn, and more.
Recess Intl. – Komodo (Bay Area)
Daniel Flaherty and Kieran Cooper show off some solid tricks with the next release from Recess! The Komodo is a new monometal yoyo coming in early 2017 from Recess Intl., and is the new signature model for Indonesian champion Ahmad Kharisma! The Recess Intl. Komodo is expected to retail for around $60, and should hit stores in early 2017. More details as soon as we have them!
Ahmad Kharisma & Daniel Flaherty in Singapore
The Recess boys are always on vacation! Check out the latest clip from Daniel Flaherty and Ahmad Kharisma, filmed in beautiful, sunny Singapore. Crazy good, as you would expect.
Yoyo used is the Recess Vacation.
Recess Vacation – Since I Left You
The Recess Vacation is finally available! This next-gen remake of the Weekend is a noticeable step forward in design for this young company, and to celebrate the initial launch we’ve got a new video from Recess featuring Keiran Cooper, Daniel Flaherty, CJ Atkinson, Tyler Severance, Andrew Bergen, Joe Wilson, and John Wolfe.

Recess Intl. – Supercut Remix (NSFW)
Recess Intl. just dropped a supercut of all their Instagram edits, and the result is hilarious. It’s like a glorious festival of “wait, what?” for the short attention-span set (which is pretty much all of us), featuring great tricks from rookies and pros and…well, other stuff.
Yoyos used are the Recess Weekend, Joyride, and First Base.
Daniel Flaherty – dflahjul14
Keiran Cooper just dropped a new (old) video featuring Daniel Flaherty! I say new (old) because it’s an old video that never actually got released, which means it’s old but it’s new to us so I had to find a clever way of saying this, because appearing to be clever is terribly important to me.
So, new (old) video. Daniel Flaherty. Enjoy.
Yoyo used is…I don’t know. But Daniel is sponsored by Recess now so let’s just pretend it’s a Recess Weekend because those are pretty good.
Recess Intl. Presents: Daniel Flaherty
Daniel Flaherty recently got picked up by Recess, and this video should remove all doubt as to why that happened. Flaherty is a crazy gifted player, and he’s barely even started his career! Seems like we can probably expect some really great things both from Daniel and from Recess, which is already scooping up an incredible amount of talent for such a young company.
Yoyo used is the Recess Weekend.
Recess Announces New Team Members
Recess Intl. came out of the gate strong with an impressive roster of sponsored players, and now their are setting their sights on the next generation.
Recess kicked off their roster with owner Tyler Severance, as well as National Champions Patrick Borgerding and Ian Johnson, and the always incredible Ky Zizan. They they scooped up rising star Colin Beckford, and announced a new signature yoyo for him called the Diplomat, scheduled for an early 2016 release.
Now they’ve announced three more players on their team! All the way from Japan they’ve added Kenta Kushiro and Syoto Saga, and from the US they’ve added Daniel Flaherty. Great pickups, and tons of talent here!
Check out some video below of the recent additions, and congratulations to Recess on such a strong team!
Keiran Cooper Presents: Daniel Flaherty
Keiran Cooper has put together a solid showcase video both for himself as a video creator (nice job!) and Daniel Flaherty as a yoyo player (daaaamn dude!). There’s some crazy good yoyo play in here…solid trick construction, smooth execution, and the general look and feel of the whole video is top notch.
Welcome to the next generation!
CLYW Presents: Bay Area Comrades
Charles Haycock traveled out to the 2014 Bay Area Classic with the intention of hanging out with some friends and filming a little for a video. What happened was much, much more than that, and he ended up with a 20-minute concept video that includes Jensen Kimmitt, Ernest Kahn, Elliot Jackson, Aaron Bendich, Daniel Flaherty, Matthew Fernandez, and Kieran Cooper.
Ernest Kahn and Matt Fernandez steal the show with two of the best yoyo video parts I’ve ever seen, like, EVER. Make yourself a sandwich, grab a beverage, and get settled in for Bay Area Comrades.
The Unofficial Selfie Video
Aaron Bendich, Wilson Van Gundy, and Daniel Flaherty drop bombs in this new video. Tons of great tricks in here from some solid up-and-comers!
Yoyos used are the CLYW Bonfire, Canvas, Puffin 2, Arctic Circle 1 & 2, and Werrd Fruiture.
