It is the first day of school. I have my books, backpack, lunch, school clothes and yoyo. You meet your teachers, find your classes and meet new friends as well as reunite with old ones. Everything feels fresh, new and exciting. This is the inspiration to the yoyo trick in the video.
I named the trick The Freshman because when I do the trick, it feels fresh, new, exciting and even a little cheeky, LOL. Seriously, I looked at this video and thought to myself, I look like a freshman during his first day of school.
The yoyo in the video is a plastic yoyo by Yoyo Factory called the Yoyo Factory Protostar.
I like this yoyo because even though it is plastic, it plays like a metal yoyo.
Check out “The Freshman” and let me know what you think and leave a comment. Also feel free to Like and Share.
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.
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 🙂
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.
Finally got the Magic Yoyo Stealth M04 from YoyoBestBuy and it is pretty cool. I picked it up from the store and was so excited. The yoyo comes in two color schemes, Greyscale Stealth Splash and an Ultra Violet Red Splash.
Even before leaving the store, I tried it out and was able to feel out the yoyo. It felt good to hold and even better to play. Check out the video I put together and if you want more information about the Magic Yoyo Stealth MO4 click on the link.
Special shout out to JD at YoyoBestBuy who was gracious enough to let me check out the shop.
After making my Yoyoer’s Point of View video, I realized that I didn’t have any videos showcasing any of my new tricks from the front view, so in this video, I am showcasing the tricks from my Yoyoer’s Point of View video, from the front point of view!!! The yoyo used was the YoyoFactory SHU-TA.
The reason I named this video I Can’t Name Yoyo Tricks is because most yoyoers make a ton of combos but when ever somebody asks them what they are called, they say “They don’t have names.” I’m one of those people.
This video shows what doing yoyo tricks looks like from my point of view. I made this video because I wanted to give people outside the yoyo world the experience of yoyoing from a “Yoyoer’s Point Of View.” The yoyo used in this video was the YoyoFactory Aviator 2.
This is when I went to the Bay Area Classic Yoyo Competition 2016. Although I didn’t compete, I had a fun time meeting new people, yoyoing, and watching all the competitor’s performances.
I got to meet up with friends whom I have met in past events. Seeing them again and witnessing how they have grown in yoyo tricks and skills is really an awesome experience. We spend the day not only watching the awesome display on stage, but also sharing and showing what we know and have practiceds since last we hung out.
In the video you will see lots of yoyos and combo tricks thrown by various players. In parts where I am doing tricks, you will see me use the OneDrop Gauntlet.
