I started this project in January 2011 as a personal challenge: could I keep up with filming and posting an original trick every day for a year? Three hundred and forty nine days later the project has not missed a single day and I was awarded the Trick Innovator of the Year award by the National Yo-Yo Museum and Contest for my work on the site.

Answer: More players! For the 2013 season of 365yoyotricks.com, I will be joined by four other players, each contributing one trick per week.
National YoYo Master
National Yo-yo Master and 2003 5A World Champion, Rafael is known for his highly conceptual and visually-appealing tricks. He is the founder and president of the Brazilian YoYo Association, and head organizer for the Brazilian National YoYo Contest. He spends most of his time disguised as a computer geek.

Co-winner of the 2007 Trick Innovator of the Year Award, Jake is one of the most gifted and under-appreciated counterweight yoyo players in the world. Jake was a massive force in the early development of tech counterweight play and, along with Jonathan Robinson, ushered in a new style of counterweight play that dominates contests to this day.
YoYoFactory Protege Team
Darnell Hairston is an up-and-coming player from the Cleveland YoYo Club who managed to land a spot on the coveted YoYoFactory Protege Team. Mentored by National YoYo Master Steve Brown, expect to see Darnell destroying contests all over the Midwest in 2013.
Spencer Berry is responsible for a tremendous number of the building blocks of modern yoyo play. He is the creator of genre-defining tricks such as Breath, Rancid Milk, and Laceration and is generally regarded as one of the founders of modern yoyo play. His signature yoyo, Walter, will be available in 2013.
