Our hobby is so great. I had a fantastic chance-encounter with Augie Fash this weekend at Disneyland.
While waiting for my kids on the various rides at Disneyland I’d find the quietest spot(s) I could near the ride-exits and practice about 7-8 different tricks, just trying to make them faster and smoother. (lots of interested people will stop and talk with you, requests for walk the dog, ect. (LOL))
Anyway, a guy comes up to me and starts to ask what kind of Yoyo I’m using, I recognize him immediately as Augie Fash. His C3yoyodesign SHREDDING video is one of my all time favorites.
Augie is a hell of a nice guy, and was as cool as could be. (He was really down to earth.)
He was kind enough to show me a series of tricks, and BOY is he awesome. He was tearing it up.
Anyway, what a fantastic experience. It’s entirely consistent with other Yoyo-ers I’ve happened to meet.
Great hobby. GREAT people. GREAT community!
