YYF: You are going to games! Wow! Is there much protesting it are people pretty stoked at what’s going on?
Paolo: protesters aren’t doing much, police cracked down
YYF: Hows the yoyo scene? Do you see many players? How many are coming to worlds?
Paolo: Haven’t had time to do much yoyo stuff this trip, but im sure fenix (local brand) is getting a good crew out to prague
YYF: So you are at iyyo, and then onto Prague. What do you know about iyyo, did you get ‘invited’?
Paolo: as far as i understood its open registration?
*Reach out to Duncan, Paolo invited*
YYF: Have you been to Europe before?
Paolo: never been to europe i cant wait!
YYF: How does all this travel effect your practice?
Paolo: it reduces practice time, but inspires my tricks. in fact, i have a set of tricks that i made while travelling, all named after the city i invented them in. i’m going home in july fir 2 weeks to practice for august.. should be good
YYF: Currently throwing?
Paolo: too hot everyday, on occasion i switch to shutter/shuta
YYF: How far out do you plan a routine? Do you have your worlds song picked?
Paolo: normally 1-2 months, since my travels are last minute this summer i’m behind. i have a good 3 minute but i dont know where to use it. still looking for a second track, if it turns out better ill save it for prague. as far as prelims im on top of that the most, gotta final if i’m going to europe
YYF: Looking forward to it!
Have fun. We are suuuuuper jealous!!!

Paolo is treated like a seasoned veteran at contests but it needs to remembered he is still only 16 and the way he steps up every contest he has it all in front of him.

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.



And finally, Brazil is getting ready for it’s National Yo-Yo Contest and YoYoFactory will be represented by Paolo Bueno! He and his family are down visiting family and fortunately it coincides with Brazil Nationals.

You couldn’t ask for a better team. YoYoFactory is proud to support such talented players. California States is one of the first big contests of the 2013 Season and it drew a lot of top players. Check out Paulo, Kevin and Clints’ freestyles from the contest. We’re looking forward to what this Season has in store for them!

In the past year Paulo Bueno was stepped up as one of the top 1A competitors in the US, making it through every round at the World Yo-Yo Contest. After a great performance at US Nationals, Paulo is ready for 2013.

You’d be hard pressed to find a more creative, passionate, drive group of professionals then those of the YoYoFactory Team. World and National Champions, International icons, Trick innovators. Each move of each trick is meticulously refined to be the most valuable, jaw dropping maneuver on stage, or film. Paulo is no exception. Holding it down for us in Southern California, and ushering in a new generation of Champion Yo-Yo Players, his tricks are deep. This new concept video takes it beyond just a new set of tricks, but explores a larger flow and visual concept that is wonderfully executed.
