2013 BAC Co-Champion with Teammate Gentry Stein is no small feat. Has he prepares for the World Championship in August, he takes advantage of his stage time at the Mexican Summer Yo-Yo Contest to get a feel for some new tricks.
Just wanted to share one of the new H.O.T. colorways. We’re fortunate enough to have it’s namesake, former US National Champ Harold Owens III in the offices overseeing production, with plans to make these releases very special.
Yo-Yo is one of the most evolving sports in the world. Things move so fast that the competitors are defining the rules. In an unprecedented turn of events, the 2013 Bay Area Classic was host to the first tie in a freestyle division. Watching both Gentry and Luis, you’d be hard pressed to find a definitive winner. As The World Championships gets closer, what these 2 will bring to the stage is on everyones mind.
Coming in 3rd… or is it 2nd?… Mexico National Champion, Paul Kerbel. After Worlds last year his name was at the end of everyones recap. The 2013 Session has shown Paul as a true competitor for a World title. With a National title already under his belt, he’s got a spot in the final round which gives him a lot of breathing room. At BAC, he was a big crowd favorite and judging by the routine, you can see why!
In the yo-yo scene we have the the great opportunity to create and invent new ways to play every day. One of the most innovative players is undeniably, Jason Lee. Jason’s newest video part is shot on location the Great Wall of China and Tiananmen Square and features some of the new planebending moves hes been developing.
We’ve been seeing many great young players coming up in Prague recently. But not so fast, or strong, as Matouš Tomeš. He’s only 14 years old, but has won the last 2 contest he’s entered, and earned himself a spot on our team as a Protége to Vashek! Welcome to the team!
Major heat coming out today with Nikita Apon’s new video part for YoYoFactory and Innovation Movement! Some amazing talent coming out of our Russian Junior Team right now! Be sure to take some time to watch this!
