Harold Owen III is a major threat at any contest he attends. Off the stage he is building a solid repertoire of bangers, but world be warned…. he is just starting to blow up and could become one of the most dominate players of his generation.

YoYoExpert is first to list this new yo-yo from YoYoFactory, the second signature edition of Gentry Stein.

 

“With the HUGE success of Gentry Stein and his signature yo-yo, the Super G, YoYoFactory wanted to re-think what the Super G is capable of. Shrunken down to an undersized throw, the G Funk is one of the best all around pocket yo-yos that they have ever made.

 

Almost identical in shape and dimension to its bigger brother, the Super G, the smaller diameter and lighter weight G Funk is a fundaMETAL yo-yo that can rival the best all around throws on the market. The smaller diameter changes the weight distribution so that the yo-yo is more nimble on the string and faster though the air.

 

If you like what the Super G brings to the table, you are going to love the G-Funk! This initial release features the G-Funk in three colors (Blue/Black Acid, Green Acid, Solid Red). But also available in a solid black wavelength edition with laser engraved wavelength rims!”

Another day, another state! Finally we made it to North Carolina and the Double Decker skate park in Fayetteville. There was a big crowd already in attendance when we arrived thanks to an over night skate all night lock in and by the time the Birdhouse crew showed up they could barely contain themselves.

With Hurricane Irene bearing down and potentially wiping out the East Coast the hard decision was made to cancel the weekends events at Virginia Beach (including all the surfing and beach events). We were re-routed inland away from the danger but before we went we wanted to see the power for ourselves. After our beach adventure we headed to Columbia for some well earned rest.

Day 5 and we headed over the border into South Carolina. It was scheduled to be our only day in SC but the weather was about to conspire against us.  That didn’t stop a crowd from turning out at the Buckwalter Skate park in Bluffington.

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!
