LorenzYoCubing.com Silver Sponsor of Bay Area Classic 2017 (BAC 2017)

The 20th Bay Area Classic is happening this Saturday, June 3, 2017 and we are excited to announce that LorenzYoCubing.com is a Silver Sponsor!

This event have historically produced many champions and yoyo experts serves as an inspiration to me and to many generations of yoyoers like me.  In fact, the very first exposure I experienced to the Yoyo world as it exist today was BAC 2015, where I met Brandon Vu, Gentry Stien and JD Steele.  I was awe struck not knowing that such an event and community exist.

Like me, many young people have been influenced by this event.  It is amazing to think that for 20 years, the BAC have captured the attention and imagination of generations of Yoyoers and is going strong to this day.

For those of you in the Bay Area, come on by and join us! The admission to the contest is free, however if you want to access the museum, there is an entrace fee.

If you cannot make it to San Jose and would like to view the event, I will be live streaming throughout the day from my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/lorenzyocubing

California State Yoyo Competition 2017

After a week of stressing out, it finally happened, the California State Yoyo Competition 2017.

Why was I stressed, well as it was my very first competition ever! Even though going into it was nerve racking, it was so much fun. This year it was held at Jack London Square in Oakland. The venue was pretty cool, right by the warf near the Oakland/Alameda border. The weather was sunny with patchy clounds with just the right amount of cool breeze. It was perfect 🙂

The competition was pretty well attended. There were a lot of players who I have seen from the previous couple of years as well as new ones whom I have met. Overall everyone was cool.

YoyoBestBuy and YoyoStringLab was there showing the latest yoyos, string and gear. The even was sponsored by all the cool brands, OneDrop, MagicYoyo, Recess, YoyoFreaks, Buddhabearing, YoyoExpert, Yoyofficer, Unprld, Studio42, Spindoctors, MonkeyFingerDesign, JDEvents, National Yoyo League and Yoyohype.

Going on stage for the first time pushed my nerves to the limit.  But when I watched the video of my performance, it felt a lot worse that it looked.  I did not quite make the finals, but getting the experience is inspiring me to do it again.  (Competition Results click here).

The players whom I have met and spent time with that day felt more like a family.  Even though we come from different places and all  walks of life, I feel connected.

This is definitely an event that I will continue to attend year after year.  Thank you all for hanging out and being cool.
