Bionic: The 2010 California State Yo-Yo Championship

March 19, 2010

This was 10 years ago: a humble contest, hidden between the busy streets of San Francisco. With an open freestyle division, players from all over California got to show off their routines to crowds of parents, fellow yoyoers, and the few passersby who happened to be in the right place at the right time.

This is now.

Click here to watch in HD.

The 2010 California State Yo-Yo Championship featured over 100 competitors from around the world competing to claim the top prize. Prizes were no longer yoyos, but one thousand dollars instead. Crowds filled the two-story mall to see what yoyoing has evolved into. This video is a glimpse of the 2010 yoyo community as a whole.

Looking at the leap in skill over the last ten years, I can’t help be excited for what the next ten has in store for us.

National Breakthrough (PSY Trailer #2)

February 18, 2010


This was a combination of the Nationals 2001 contest video as well as the second PSY trailer. It featured not only footage from the 2001 National Yo-Yo Contest, but also various clips sent in from around the world. I believe this video was the internet-debut of Arthur Staykov, one of the B3 members from Poland.

Looking back at the video, we start to see the emergent trend of faster tricks as well as more complex string tricks. By 2003, these trends eventually led to a new renaissance in 1A where more emphasis was placed on getting as many string-hits into a single combo as possible. This is one of the last glimpses of the 1A of yesteryear. Aside from the PSY/String Theory DVD, this was one of the last videos I released publicly on the old Sector Y.
