A Tribute to Paul Escolar

Hello friends. Today we lost Mr. Escolar. I never got to meet the guy, but I always wished I could have. And of course, I felt his influence every day.

So today I made a tribute video to him, tracing all my green triangle tricks from the start. You can see little Robin putting in his hours of practice, up until a trick I made a couple weeks ago.

And the whole time, Paul’s ideas are there.

If you guys have any tricks influenced by him, throw them here.

Rest easy, sir.

Thanks for that. Your progress and improvement over the years is evident. Really liked the glow string shots.

That is shocking and a huge loss to yoyoing. We should all take a moment after every magic drop, green triangle or suicide catch to dedicate to his memory.

That was kind of my idea with this video.
I owe him a lot.

Throughout a lot of my life, his ideas have been with me, through the thick and thin.

Not only a nice guy it seems but modern 1a players would be walking the dog considering his trick creations.
He deserves all the hyperboles and may he keep throwing up on high.
RIP.
