Yoyo Unboxing – YoyoFreaks Your Mom 100 Series

“100 Yoyos, 10 Color Ways, 1 Time Run,” that is what sums up YoyoFreaks Your Mom.  This is directly from the site http://yoyofreaks.com/.

With the plethora of yoyo companies and yoyo models out there, YoyoFreaks is doing something different, quality versus quantity.  This is the brain child of JD Steele   who created YoyoFreaks originally as a site for yoyo videos.  Now it is a site of the 100 series and after they are gone, they are gone.

LorenzyoCubing.com Launch

It is official, today February 12, 2017 the website is launched, http://lorenzyocubing.com .  It seems time flew fast.  Just a couple of years ago I started my youtube channel and now we launch an actual site on the internet.  Pretty cool indeed!

What better way to launch the site than a video.  This video is a way for me to introduce myself officially to the world.

It starts off by a quick introduction then I talk about how i got started with yoyo tricks.  I even shared my thoughts on what is important to get better at this hobby and advice for kids who wants to get started.

I brought my Duncan yoyo bag that day.  The bag contains my favorite yoyos.  It is hard to imagine that I started with the DV888 which I like.

But now I have many other advanced yoyos to play with and enjoy.  It is truly a blessing to be able to enjoy this sport.

Like my first video that launched my youtube channel, I shot this video with my Dad.  We were joined by his friends who were really awesome and was responsible for the awesome video.

The yoyo I used in this video to perform tricks is one of my favorite yoyos, the CLYW Orca. Here is the actual yoyo in 360.

So without further delay, here is the launch video.  Please like, comment and subscribe.

Yoyo Tricks – Everything Is Cooler In Slow-mo even Vanilla Mint

This video is different from the ones we posted before.  We visited a friend of my Dad in his production studio and I was blown away.  Actually my Dad was blown away because between him and I, he is the one who geeks over video equipment 🙂

In the studio, we shot video of tricks from different angles and scenes but mostly outdoors.  This one was the only one we shot indoors.

The setup was fairly simple, there were two side lights and a black backdrop as the background.  At first I thought, hmmm this is different.  But it was not until I saw the video footage that made me realize how cool the shot was.

You know I cannot name yoyo tricks and in fact, I am one of those players that says it is just a combo.  But since this video is full of new things, lighting, background, indoor video footage, the music, I am going to name it.  Let me call this combo Vanilla Mint, because it is cool and refreshing like the breath mints sitting on my desk 🙂

My favorite mints sitting on my desk.

The trick itself is straight forward but technical in nature.  It involves string slack control, speed control, and finishes with a picture trick.  As if the shot was not cool enough, when I was editing it, I saw something that made it cooler, slow motion.

Check out the video and comment below.  Thanks!

Yoyo Tricks – Cool Binds Part 2

It’s been almost a year since I made the Cool Binds video and since then, I learned some even cooler binds, So in this video, I am show casing the new binds that I have learned in a year!!! The yoyo I used in this video was the YoyoFactory SHU-TA.

One Year – YoyoFactory Dream

One year after the launch of my YouTube Channel LorenzYo Cubing, I decided to do a “One Year Video.” I purposed the video to thank you, my subscribers for supporting my channel. It was also a good opportunity for me to capture how I have grown as a yoyo player after one year.

The yoyo I used in the video is the YoyoFactory Dream. Below is the actual yoyo I used.

Taking the theme from the name of the yoyo, I setup the scenes as if I was dreaming. You will see some of my friends in the video, goofing around and having fun.

The tricks were new at the time and were full of quick throws.  Please enjoy the video and share, like and subscribe.
