The Yo-yo buddy thread

So on a speedcubing forum I was on, there was a thread called “the buddy thread”. You would match up with someone of your skill level, and then you two would set a goal like being sub 15 seconds on 3x3. It was a really neat way to set goals, to have a push to get better. Now I know most people hear are pretty experienced, but you can still give it a try. If this becomes popular, I will organize the pairs of people and what not on the main post. I’ll start

I’m currently learning The 1.5 mount. I want to race to let’s say Kwyjibo skill level. Would anyone like to pair with me?

Thats a solid idea.

These guys have a few ppl who embark on challenges they change weekly. Learning new tricks together and share videos. I already know kwyjibo but i would gladly practice it live on Instagram with you

Like Frankie said, we offer group buddy thread on the link he posted above ^

But our first trick is Kamikaze, so you should jump on board with us when you are ready. We will be waiting and expecting your arrival :slight_smile:

Maybe if there isn’t anyone in someone’s skill level they could be a “mentor”, someone who already knows the trick and helps people who are learning!:grinning:
