Hello,
My name is John. I live in Maryland, 48 YO, married, mortgage, kids, etc. My first yoyo was a Duncan (wooden/fixed axle) I bought at the local Ben Franklins. Fast forward about 20 yrs.
I got interested again when Yomega was king. I have to admit that if I had followed some basic advice and bought a Dark Magic earlier in my latest buying binge, I would have saved a lot of money. Ounce for ounce the DM can't be beat! I'd like to pay homage to Andre and his associates for their contributions to this type of site - particularly the videos of all the tricks. I have learned more from watching (and practicing) hour after hour then any other source.
I look forward to learning from everyone and getting tips, suggestions, etc. Thanks!

My name is Jon (31) and I have loved yo yo's since I was a little kid.  I fooled around with basic tricks, all the ones in the Duncan handbook.  Recently I rediscovered how much fun yo yo-ing can be, and with so many things available on the internet, I have learned numerous new tricks and need to learn more.  Right now I am using the Speed Dial by Yo Yo factory, but have decided that this yo yo has gotten me as far as it can, and now I need to upgrade to a more advanced yo yo.  If anyone can suggest a good one, that would be great, because I will probably go with aesthetics over performance...

thanks.

Hello,
My name is Kai and I am 9 years old.
I was born in California, but I now live in Sopron, Hungary.
I was lucky enough to be in California this last October for the 2008 National Championships, in Chico. Lots of fun and got to meet and see a lot of the pros perform.
My favorites are Grant Johnson, Yoshi Mikamoto and Augie Fash.

My favorite yoyo is the Dark Magic and am patiently waiting for the Legacy. It's harder to learn by yourself, but I hope to hook up with some of the guys here in Hungary. Also, the videos are awesome.

YO! What's up yoyo experts? and novices(like me!) this site seems pretty cool! i stumbled upon it by accident(divine) so i figured i would register and share my yoyoing experiences. i first began as a kid
in the mid-70's when there was a yoyo craze going on. The main yoyo company was Duncan and the butterfly was all the rage,although, if you had a velvet imperial you were considered cool.i have thrown yoyos ever since,but only really learned the basics: sleeper, 'round the world, rock the cradle
and the infamous walk the dog(URGH!).It wasn't until a few years ago that i was reintroduced to the world of yoyoing by a fan backstage throwing a really cool yoyo. i was taking a smoke break,but didn't have any cigarettes, so i spent my break yoyoing instead.then,it hit me (an idea,not the yoyo)
what if i were to yoyo every time i felt the urge to smoke? i had been trying to quit and figured this would help to take my mind off of it. and it did! 3 years later i am smoke free (nasty habit) and i have a nice collection of yoyos! i even got other band members and friends into yoyoing. i perform with Bushwalla and....123 Band! and there's always some type of zany antics on stage! we yoyo,juggle,breath fire and balance our instruments on our faces all while makin' you shake your booty! if you don't believe me just check out Bushwalla.net and see! yoyoing is a great way to express yourself,meet people and experience a since of accomplishment,not to mention it takes the kids away from the t.v. and gives them something more challenging and fun! YOYOS FOR EVERYONE!
