How did you get into yoyoing?


#1

I was looking up gyroscopes (yeah, I know) and came across Andre’s gyroscopic flop tutorial on Youtube and I thought it was so awesome, so I got my first yoyo, my Yoyojam Journey! How did YOU get into yoyoing?

it was summer and I just found my sister’s old yoyo, so I threw it down and it broke beyond repair. I was disappointed so for Christmas I asked for a yoyo, and its been going of ever since.

My most recent start was I had a 2 Hour lay over in the Denver Airport, and I remembered throwing a yomega brain in my grade school days so I got a yugioh clutch yoyo, and a butterfly. Next week a fast 201 then when I broke my string in about a minute I bought a 50 pack off of a not yoyoexpert site, and I bought a redline, and after that it just spiraled out of control.

I LOVE YOYOS

Well, I started 10 years ago when McDonalds was giving out yomegas (fireballs, x-brains, and a powerbrain). I lost them all, then found them last year. Then, my friend convinced me into going into trick yoyos. He let me use his legacy, then I was hooked, he is a great friend. He got me in. You guys know him Death here on the forums.
