Day 3 of the Birdhouse MIA to NYC tour and we visit. the legendary KONA skatepark in Jacksonville Florida. This is the oldest skatepark operational in the world and was made even more famous from appearing in the Tony Hawk Pro Skater Video video game.

 

The crowd were super stoked to see us there and even stayed with us while the team skated the park! Sebastian Brock came by and was a huge help, Thanks Sebby!

It was raining all through lunch so it was looking unlikely that Tony and Staab would get to skate the vert ramp. Luckily the sun came out about 45 minutes before the demo started and dried up the huge puddles. Tony took to the vert ramp along with Kevin Staab and a group of locals and some of the Birdhouse skate team. Afterwards we had a quick product toss and decided to get on the road. A huge thanks goes out to Clements and the guys at Skatepark of Tampa for their hospitality. Nobody does it like them.

YoYoFactory Presents: A Protege Video, Joe and Mark. Alexander does two things: studying and training his skill. And these two things helped him to get YYF team. How he says: “When I’ve started to play with yo-yo I didn’t thought that it will bring me new horizons. I‘ve made good break in my yoyoing for small time, I have achieved not bad results in competitions and now I’m in respectful YoYoFactory Team. That’s great. But I know that I’m on the beginning and I’ll try to do the best I can!”

Been a bit quiet around here lately compared to previous years.

 

Here is why……

 

YoYoFactory will not
be a sponsor of the 2011 World YoYo Contest. Out of respect to the sponsors we will not have any retail outlet at the contest either through YoYoFactory directly as in previous years or through any other retail sponsors at the event. If you need YoYoFactory product for the contest it is recommended you order prior to the event. YoYoFactory will continue to support the event through the attendance of our Contest Team (with representatives traveling from over 6 nations to compete) and through our coverage of the event which will this year run through our facebook page www.facebook.com/yoyofactory as well as the traditional yoyofactory.com and our twitter feed at www.twitter.com/yoyofactory.

 

We wish all attendees a safe journey and to those competing the best of luck.

Contests going on all week at www.facebook.com/yoyofactory.

 

Hunter Birt won himself an AVANT GARDE with this picture.

 

 

Hunter also has some pretty smooth moves so we found this video of him and think he is well on the way to being a top level player.

 

 

Good Job Hunter!
