Another amazing day in California. Today’s stop is the San Jose Skatepark. Before we could even get set up, people started picking up yo-yos and learning their first tricks.
In no time we had a huge crowd watching the YoYoFactory pros: Paul, Ann and Pat all threw down great freestyles. A true showcase of what modern performance yo-yos can do!
Next up was our first of many Long Sleeper Contests. For most of these players, today was their first time throwing a yo-yo. But they picked it up quick and won some great prizes!
Back in the YoYoFactory tent, people packed in to learn about yo-yos, look at the rad YoYoFactory product lineup for 2012 and learn more tricks.
In no time, the skate demo started. Huge crowds surrounded the bowl while the Birdhouse team went at it.
Always a fun watch, Kevin Staab killing it with color and skill!
Whether you’re a fan because of his style, his boards, or his shoes, Steve Caballero is a true legend in skateboarding. For those of you who don’t know, those Half Cabs you have, this man’s signature shoe. Undeniable Legend.
Speaking of Half Cab, this is Steve’s daughter. Rockin’ her own pair of her dad’s shoe. And showing the same style and grace int he bowl as him too.
More Long Sleeper contests back at the YoYoFactory booth. Show up for a skate demo, walk away a yo-yo champion with $100 YoYoFactory 888 in hand? Sounds like a good day!
We also help the YoYoFactory San Jose West Coast Tour Pro Contest! While one of our favorites of the day, Heshgod couldn’t hold it up to Aaron who threw down a great freestyle and took home the coveted West Coast Pro trophy! Congrats!
Tomorrow is slated to be the best day yet. Sacramento State Fair with tons of YoYoFactory Pros: Pat, Ann, Tyler, Augie, Gentry, Ben and Seth. Along with the Birdhouse Vert team and tons of other great activities! See you there around 4pm!
