Introduce Yourself!

Most Definitely!


Hello all, long time lurker here(since yoyo nation) but im trying to get out of that phase. My name is shannon, 25 years old.Been throwing since middle school but stopped, picked up the hobby again after high school when i had money to buy higher end throws. stopped again since i worked full time.Found it more fun to trade and collect, but slowly…very slowly learning more advandced tricks…
What i love about our little niche community is that, everybody is polite and willing to help each other out. ya kow mutual respect something you don’t see a lot of down in south florida.(not a lot of thrower down here either.) But once you do show that one cool trick you can inspire another .

Now about to join the coast guard.i want to get back in to the hobby again so i have something to do if i get shipped out on cutters. so like the toy i’ve had my ups and downs. so hopefully i’ll get to be part of this community even after shipping out after basics.

Great, can’t wait to see you again, Ant!

Hey Im Taylor. I had an account here under the username sstaylor.

I am looking to sell some of my stuff.

Ive been yoyoing for like 6 or 7 years now :smiley:


Welcome back! Did you want to merge your old and new accounts? Let me know, I can help, I’m the forum janitor!


Heyoo, I’m eli. I threw for fun when i was a in middle school, I think my last yoyo then was an x-brain. Just randomly thought about yoyoing a couple weeks ago and it seems I’ve given in to the mental quick sand. So here I am! I came over specifically for the BST, but also to join the community and hopefully learn a thing or two and get some sage advice. Just got my first throw of the modern age yesterday, and Im loving the wedge. But Im already drooling over all of your used throws in BST, so expect to see me lurking.

Hi all,
I was here from Sept. 2018 until Feb. 2019. Quit the Forum and deleted my profile. I’m back for good. Never stopped throwing and working on my frontstyle. I sincerely apologize to the friends I made here…for quitting without a word.


why did you leave in the first place?

(Jacob Waugh) #6248

Yoo, do sidestyle, please!

(ChrisFrancz) #6249

At this time it does not interest me that much and this is talk for a topic about styles. I don’t want to sidetrack the Introduce Yourself thread.


Welcome back! Feel free to bounce the frontstyle topic any time!

Hi my name is Evan, I’m 23 and I’ve been yoyoing since high school, I’ve only ever learned a few basic tricks because as much as I loved throwing I just never really had the time or money to get into the good stuff so I just sort of stopped for a couple years. In the past couple months I’ve been working on improving my basic skills and finally got a shutter to learn with and I’m making so much more progress than I was with cheap yo-yos. I have a few other hobbies including programming, gardening, and building things. My goal is to compete in and hopefully one day win worlds. My primary interest in joining the forum is to keep motivated and to keep up to date with the goings on of the yo-yo community. I look forward to making new friends and learning new tricks.
