Ginji was a star at AP. It wasn’t even because he won the 2A division, which he did, it was the fact he constantly plays yoyo, loves it, loves meeting new yoyo players, loves sharing tricks. We are proud to be associated with him and congratulate him on his first international contest win.

2A is a contest division. Looping is a style of play. with that cleared up I think it is easy to agree with the statement Atsushi Yamada is the greatest looping player of this generation and one of the greatest of all!

We just got a bunch of awesome new colors in and we’re excited to show them off. First up, the ultimate looping machine, Loop 1080 is receiving a full stock in 2 new colorways. Creating the perfect looper has been a labor of love here at YoYoFactory. A challenge that has spanned over 3 years and several models. We are proud of the results and can’t wait for you to try them!

Heres another shot of the new Loop 1080 colorways. We’ve got the bright and flashy edge-glow yellow with neon pink caps for the flashy crowd. And for those looking for something more subtle and understated, clear with gold print.

The ONEstar has become a new canvas for special editions, and a mainstay for anyone looking for amazing performance at a good price. We wanted to spice things up for the latest general release with this solid red ONEstar with new cap art.

Finally, we have a special edition ONEstar. We went with a sleek matte black finish and our popular “Triple” logo.

The Yo-Yo scene is strong in Prague, and leading the charge is Vashek. Whether he’s manning his shop, Slusny or touring the US and Europe, he’s always teaching and spreading the Yo-Yo. No idea when he finds time to create so many great tricks and move. Check out the new video part below showcasing his June 2013 tricks.

It should come to no surprise that the YoYoFactory Team does a lot of traveling. On any given weekend we have members attending contests, doing trade shows, touring, teaching and promoting Yo-Yo literally around the world. To give you a little glimpse into where we’re at this weekend, we put together a little report:

 

Ann is no stranger to travel. Over the last few years she’s become quite a jetsetter, hitting Japan, China, Russia, Australia and all over the USA on tour. Her current trip takes her to the London for a few days, then this weekend Ann makes an appearance at a Toy show in Japan as the special guest. From Japan she’ll be heading to Prague. Then onto a whirlwind European tour. Poland and France among others.

Jason Lee is in transit between the Middle East (Iran was the last place he touched down) and Europe. Pictured below, Jason is standing at the edge of a perpetually burning gas crater. Berlin for a bit, then to Prague to meet up with Ann and the SLUSNY crew. Where to after that? Only Jason knows.

State-side US National Champ Patrick Borgerding took 1st at Midwest Regionals, then headed to Chicago for some sight seeing and inspiration.

 

Here at the YoYoFactory Office in Arizona, Tyler Severance just booked his tickets South Central Reagionals in Denver, CO. And everyone is finalizing travel plans to Worlds.

We also have some special guests in the office. Former US National Champ Harold Owens III is in town for an extended stay. Sharpening his demonstrating skills with the awesome summer programs Tyler is running here, and fine tuning his Worlds freestyle. He’s got to make it through all the prelims AND get a final routine down. The peace and quite of the desert is helping him focus.

Along with Harold, we also had a surprise visit from 2x time World Champion Eiji Okuyama all the way from Japan. He and Harold made the trek up to the Grand Canyon to see the sights and get some cool photos.
