My tip is to yo-yo everyday. I keep a yo-yo in my car so I can play before I start my shift and during my lunch break. Also try not to get discouraged if you feel like you're not constantly making progress. It's better to compare yourself month to month instead of week to week or day to day. I would start with the tricks in the learn section on this site. Also don't be afraid to ask questions on here if you get stuck. I find posting videos of myself on here when I need help is very beneficial. I bought a tripod, phone mount, and head mount for a gopro on Amazon. I also bought a used GoPro on eBay.

My tip is to yo-yo everyday.

In my opinion, this isn't necessary. Yoyoing is about having fun and enjoying the ride. If you don't feel like it, what's the point? I do what seems fun at the moment and don't push to learn anything new in yoyoing unless it has some fun factor to it (which could include the the journey of learning the trick, including the frustrations). Maybe this is why I'm not a very good yoyoer for how long I've been in the hobby Wink

I started yoyoing 4-5  years ago and around 2years ago I stopped (the reason? I honestly don't remember probably due to time and boredom). I'm a senior in highschool now and since it's second semester I have some free time so I thought why not. ALthough I wasn't really up to date on anythign yoyo related, in the past year I've started keeping up with the yoyo scene again and stuff like that. I'm honestly really rusty and don't remember much other than the basics but the basecamp expedition really caught my eye and I decided to pick one up along with the highly praised shutter which seems to be a staple in everyone's collection these days. I've also thought of posting reviews and videos so if anyone has anything they would like to ask me or know regarding the yoyos feel free to leave a response belowwwww. Smiley

I am a 50 year old beginner. My wife bought me a DV888 with unresponsive upgrade for our anniversary a couple of months ago - now I'm hooked. Hopefully I'll be able to celebrate another anniversary after she finds out I ordered a markmont classic today!

Welcome, welcome,welcome!  Being of age myself I know how wives can react.  Best advice?   Get the grand-kids interested.  That will make grandma happy.   And most important: Have Fun!
