Skills are so yesterday!
Why practice more than you have too? That would mean that you have to yoyo more. Yoyoing more means you have more fun. Having more fun makes you want to yoyo. Having more fun and wanting to yoyo makes you better. If you are getting better, your skills are developing. If your skills are developing............maybe skills are so today!
I don't believe that one path of yoyoing fits all. I do believe that if you acquire the appropriate fundamental skills that you will most likely be much more succesful and be more likely to enjoy yoyoing for a very long time.
I guess that's part of the freedom of yoyoing, to choose for yourself. As in all things, some make better choices than others.
Btw, why start with plastic yoyos and bearings? How about that nice wood fixed axle?
Lol, I'm rambling. To much caffiene!! If my posts confuses you I apologize. If it doesn't confuse you please explain it to me
