We enjoy what we do. That’s why we are almost constantly on the road. Touring, traveling, competing and teaching Yo-Yo. We have the best crew in the world supporting us. Both on our sponsored team, and everyone who throws and creates with our products. In our travels we get to meet a lot of our fans and supporters. When we do, we love hearing what they think of our new ideas. When we set out to make Vashek a signature Yo-Yo, we wanted it to be a true to the sport as he is. Always pushing, always bringing a new hand to the table. In this first installment of “Underground Tapes” we wanted to show you what the future of Modern Japanese Yo-Yoing looks like, and what they can do on a CZM8.
Vashek Kroutil travelled from the Czech Republic to Japan for the launch of his new signature yoyo the Czech Mate (CZM84VK). Filming his edit in a day we threw the Czech Mate to a few legends and some up and comers in Japan to see what they could do.
We are constantly impressed with the level of creativity in Modern yo-yoing. Ryan is know for creating exceptionally produced videos, and this one hits it out of the park! Thank you to Ryan, and everyone who supports us and creates with our products.
The YoYoFactory ONE may be our entry level yo-yo, but that doesn’t mean it can’t handle the newest Modern Yo-Yo tricks! Check out Mateusz “Gacek” Ganc as he rips through some of his newest moves on his Champions Collection ONE.
Malaysia has been a yo-yo spot for a long time, and it continues to see growth. At the core of it is 28Spin, and their physical retail shop 28DC. They are also great representatives for YoYoFactory, with a great selection of our yo-yos and producing great product videos like this new Severe piece.
Slusny is known for amazing video production, and this new video part is no exception. Holding it down for YoYoFactory in the boom Czech Republic scene, Slusny is headed by long-time Team member Vashek Krutil. When Vashek and his team of super star yo-yo players aren’t traveling the European Contest circuit, throwing underground yo-yo contests or doing amazing yo-yo demos at youth culture events you can find them manning their birck and mortar store front in Prague. In this new video part Matouš Tomeš is showcased. One of the best and brightest up-and-comers in Europe, expect to see his name a lot more.
Shu had an outstanding Contest Season last year. The pinnacle of it was his World Championship win in 2A, and also the release of his highly anticipated signature Loop 1080. Getting in some stage time before Japan Nationals, and Worlds. Looking good!
The 2013 Contest Season is really heating up in the US. One of the biggest State level contests, Minnesota States, drew many top players from the country, and even Canada. Coming out at the top spot, Harold Owens III is really showing a strong start to the season. With his eye on BAC, and ultimately Worlds in August, Harold has the determination and is putting in the hours.
