Hello all; my name is Grant and I am a strapping young lad of twenty with a passion for yo-yoing.  Although I'm currently quite horrible, I am getting better every day.  Right now I'm rocking a stock Kickside with home made shims and it plays like a dream.  Someday I hope to work my way up to a Dark Magic or a Hitman, but  at the moment I can barely afford ramen so a forty dollar yoyo just hasn't found it's way onto my budget.  I'm still very new, but thanks to the videos in the Learn section I am currently working my way through the advanced level tricks.  I was referred to this fine site by Andre himself after telling him of my renewed interest in yoyoing and thanking him for his informative videos.

Hello, all!

My name is Buck, Im out of Denver, Co, and first off Id really REALLY like to put up my most heartfelt THANK YOU to Andre and YoYoExpert. See, ive been watching all the vids at Mastermagic, and the ones at Expert Village, and I can usually follow whats going on.... The thing is, Im deaf, and having the entire discourse on the videos actually PRINTED right next to the vid is a Godsend. All of a sudden, everything old is new again, and Im able to get details I didnt have before.  Its SO great!!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU!  You have NO idea!!

Anyhow Ive been throwing for a long time, but only seriously for about a year or so now; Im an avid collector, Im actually a better collector than a player, and I like to try all the new stuff as it comes out and compare with everything else on the market from a consumer/enthusiast perspective. I like being able to help people when I can.

I dont usually forum jump, but the mere fact that some one took the effort to caption all those tutorial videos gets VERY high marks from me, and so I figured it would be well worth my while to join you here.   Thanks for havin me!

Lookin' forward to it!

This is so much fun!
My name is Max.  I am kind of a small person but with large attitude which is why my name is Might Max!!!  I have been playing yo-yo for 6 months.  I learn all my tricks at MasterMagic.net and begin2spin.com but now yoyoexpert.com

This is cool forum.  I also like to read news section.

Nice to meet you all!

Hello one and all.

I am 64 years young and haven't touched a yoyo in more the 4 decades.  Why I got interested in yoyo's?  I seen my grandson, age 9, attempt to work his Dad's wooden relic.  As I watch him struggle, a thought came to mind.  Perhaps he and I could do (yoyo) this together as a team.  I went web surfing and OH MY GOSH. I was hooked.  I've purchased a few yoyos and learning some of the basic stuff that's available on this web-site, fantastic site by-the-way.  I'm positive when I show off after Christmas dinner, he'll be hooked to........ then we're off n'throwin down.  My wife thinks I've reverted back to my childhood and, well, she's right and I love it. (I caught her trying to work my yoyo when she assumed I wasn't around :0),  A camera is never available when you need one!!!

So far I've learned a lot from all you young whippersnappers, and thanks
Larry.

Hey,
My name is Max, and ive been yoyoing for about 3 years. I'm known in my area as the "yoyojesus". Ive gotton a lot of great comments about my yoyoing, because i made a performance in front of 1,500-2,000 people. Ive also competed in MA states 08 but did extremely poorly( www.youtube.com/idaman3 ). My favorite trick would have to be one of my creations that can be seen in a couple of videos at www.youtube.com/spinnerdude. It contains three slack swings,and ends in a robotic entry to a reverse green triangle. I found out about yoyoexpert through my research in good websites I was trying to recomend or the seven people I teach.

Sup, My name is Robert and I'm from Wister Oklahoma. My favorite yo that I would say is the Yoyojam Dark Magic by André Boulay. I've been yoing since April 2008 so about 6 months. My favorite trick I would say is probably leg rap trap and thumb grind. I started back when I was 9 for a wile and just learned the basics, than I quit. A few years later I went on a school trip to a historic site. While I was there I bought a basic wood yoyo that wouldn't even sleep. so I showed my friends some loops and hops and they where just amazed! So i taught them some tricks and how to yoyo and that's when I realized "I want to try this out again". I have a DM, Big yo2, custom yo Axl, 2 Duncan imperials, Duncan butterfly, Duncan mosquito, And a glow-in-the-dark yo i got out of a vending machine. I'm am currently trying to get 2 Sunset trajectories. Some day I hope to be as great as André. Later.

Hello, all!

My name is John Little...I was playing yo-yo ages ago when the hottest thing going was a good Duncan Butterfly.  Huh WOW! How old is that!?! don't ask

Found this site when Expert Village decided to make yoyoexpert (or however that happened)...absolutely lovin' it.

Well, I purchased a Speed Beetle from Wally World followed shortly by a Mosquito. Bought all 4 of my kids a yo-yo and we got busy.  We all learned some tricks and had some fun. Now here we are 6 months later.  My oldest step-son still plays and I'm an addict.  I start playing at 5:30 when I get up to go to work and I don't quit till I go to be at night. There's always another trick to learn.

lmatthis, I feel your pain...my wife has threatened to hang me with my own yo-yo  Shocked...she'll get over it Cheesy I hope.

Current yo-yos: Lyn Fury, Dark Magic and a Mini Mo-Trix Tu.
I just got the Mo-Tu, but I still love my DM...it's very modified, silicone mod, homemade KK bearing and it rocks!

BIG thanks go to Andre for taking the time to make all those wonderful videos for us to learn from.
