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.
Horizontal yoyo tricks are pretty cool to watch and satisfying to execute. When I started playing yoyos I could not do any horizontal tricks until I started paying attention to others who can do it well. Once I analyzed the movements, arm positions, strowing direction os the yoyo, it finally clicked.
In the video I used the Yoyo Factory SHU-TA seen here:
In the video you will see various ways to throw the yoyo an perform horizontal tricks. You will see how to do a horizontal break away, a horizontal front throw and some horizontal yoyo tricks.
The event was held in Chico California, which was about a two and a half hour drive from Brentwood. Although the car ride was a bit long, it was well worth the trip.
When we arrived in Chico and found our way through town, it quickly dawned on me that this was a special town for Yoyos. We found the National Yoyo Museum which displayed the history of yoyo competitions, even the world championships.
I also saw the biggest working wooden yoyo I have ever seen.
But perhaps the highlight of the trip, besides witnessing the Cal State competition for me was connecting with so many yoyoers. It is so cool to see this hobby being enjoyed my so many.
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.
