I’m proud to introduce Steller Features. For whatever reason, I find myself in the lucky position of having people who consistently give my videos views and publicity. I felt that I should take advantage of such a privilege by featuring other yo-yoers who are under the radar of many others in the yo-yo community, in hopes of giving them the publicity they truly deserve. Each Feature will come along with a “Player Profile” found below describing the featured player. There is no set time-frame on when these release other than when I get the chance to film and edit. Please be sure to share, these yo-yoers have earned it.
PLAYER PROFILE | Nick de Valpine:
When this video was shot, Nick had just passed his 2.5 year mark in yo-yoing, and was 11 years old. Allow me to reiterate the fact that NICK WAS 11 YEARS OLD when I filmed him at the 2013 Massachusetts State Yo-Yo Contest. Nick is one of the most endearing and enthusiastic yo-yoers in the sport today. Plain and simple, Nick just loves to yo-yo, and his attitude and tricks show that this type of mentality gets you quite far. He is a fan favorite at every northeast event in the United States because of his consistent presence on stage, as well as his incredibly technical yo-yo tricks. You’ll always find his name high on the scoring sheet as a result. Nick is ahead of his time, and I can’t wait to see where yo-yoing takes him in the future. At the moment, Nick is not affiliated with any yo-yo companies, but I personally don’t expect his availability to last very long. The yo-yo used was a CLYW Arctic Circle.
