We are always yo-yoing. Whenever. Wherever we have a chance. This weekend after the East Japan Yo-Yo Contest we were waiting for a Ramen shop to open up, and decided to shoot a video. Featuring multiple time World and National John Ando playing with the new Champions Collection Proton.
The 2013 European Yo-Yo Championships is closely approaching. The list of Seeds to Finals has been published on the official Contest site. Congratulations to YoYoFactory Team members Yuji, Vashek, Kojo, Marcin, Daniel and Dave for amazing performances in 2012 that have earned them spots in the Final round of their respective divisions! We are looking forward to an amazing EYYC 2013 in Budapest, Hungary!
Last month found YoYoFactory in Moscow for Russian Nationals. During the contest we also had some pre-released models from Champions Collection. As the team started playing and getting to know the new offerings, it became apparent that Vashek had found a new favorite. In seasons past, Vashek has gravitated towards the Supernova profile. So, with the introduction of a smooth, machined plastic yo-yo with an inspired profile it was a no brainer. He couldn’t put it down, even outside in the Russian winter.
Yuji S-Kelly just dropped this amazing video part on New Years Eve. Yuji is constantly evolving and refining his style, and from this teaser 2013 is going to look great! His combination of intricate contortion and superb control of his slack string is incredible.
Darnell Hairston is one of the most prolific up-and-comers on the YoYoFactory team. He’s constantly producing video parts, and always trying to push his tricks to the next level. His newest part, Dim is a great example of his dedication to the sport while staying fresh and original.
