Paradise Lost

Yo-Yoing has always had strong ties to Northern California. Long before YoYoFactory demonstrators visited the town every summer bring yo-yo season to the people. The culture is deep and strong, especially focused around Chico, home of the National YoYo Museum and long time home of the USA National Contest. Around Bird in Hand, home to the museum a community grew, through Chico and the surrounding towns, Paradise, now infamously, one of these towns people know.

Izuru Hasumi Singularity

YoYoFactory will release team member Izuru Hasumi's signature model “Singularity” on August 23, 10pm in Japan!

Singularity is built for optimum power and stability because of its higher mass distribution on the stainless-steel rim weights.
At the same time, it maintains a great controllability, so it works perfectly for horizontal style and the speed combos that Izuru is famous for.

The first release comes in three different blue-oriented colorways since blue is Izuru’s favorite color.

Singularity will be available first at the REWIND on August 23, 10pm (Japan Time).

Please wish Izuru good luck in his future contest participation and give Singularity a try

Evan Nagao is the BATTLE FOR CHICAGO CHAMPION

AKA, 2x USA NATIONAL CHAMPION

Evan Nagao of Honolulu, Hawaii is the USA Yo-Yo Champion having won the title at the National Yo-Yo Contest in Chicago on July 1st. This win yields a seeded spot for him to represent the USA at the World Yo-Yo Contest in Shanghai in August. Nagao first gained notoriety for his talent at the young age of 4 appearing on the Jay Leno show as a yo-yo prodigy. Video of his unbelievable National’s performance using his signature YoYoFactory “Edge” yo-yo has become the most popular post on Reddit and gained over 200,000 YouTube views in just 24 hours. Evan credits his victory to many hours of practice as well as meditation and visualization. Along side him on the winner’s podium were two of his YoYoFactory Contest Team mates, 3x USA Champion Gentry Stein placing 2nd and Nate “The Great” Dailey placing 3rd, both of California. 

 

Check out what fans think of Evans win on REDDIT !

Hunter graduates SHUTTER CREW and accepts a spot on YoYoFactory Team!

 Hunter Feuerstein graduated SHUTTER CREW and was immediately presented with the opportunity to join the YoYofactory Contest Team. Hunter is the first Graduate to be offered a spot on the Team and we proud to announce he accepted!

Hunter has been a prolific traveller this season making it out to PNWR, NWR and just this weekend he put down his best freestyle to date at MWR taking 2nd place amongst a talented field. If he were a horse we would say he is just coming into form for the big race, the race being USA nationals. We would also say he is quite small for a horse.

Congrats on the MWR result and heres to a bright future on the team!

TEAM HORIZON weekend double!

First off, Marcus Osborne became the UK National YoYo champion is a rather upper crust event in the UK. The porta-potties and skateboard ramps of previous UK Nationals were a memory as everyone battled it out in relative comfort ;)

On the other side of the world, Polo (Garbkamol Limangkul) won his first Thailand National Championship!

Congratulations guys!
