What is your craziest yoyo experience?!


#1

What is the most crazy experience you ever had yoyoing at some time in your life? Explain with details and pictures if you have them!


#2
 I broke a string right before the start of my 1a performance at the 2012 NER Yoyo Contest.  At the 2014 Ma State Yoyo Contest I broke a string during my performance (brand new string that I had forgotten to break in).

#3

Oooohhh!! You were the kid that broke the string! I was there for that :slight_smile:


#4

Not “crazy” so much, but John and Rebecca Higby had me do a quick couple of combos for their crowd at the Ottawa Busker’s Festival. That was pretty memorable. :slight_smile:


#5

I was on a Boy Scout campout, and I saw a kid from another troop with a OneStar. He could barely land trapeze, and I asked him if I could try it. He was saying something like, “I don’t think you’re as good as me.” I was going to tell him I was, but I decided to have fun. Proceed me ninja vanishing, spirit bombing, and doing tricks like that. He looked like this the whole time: :o So fun.


#6

I wanna do this to someone but have like music going and do a routine lol.

Then just walk away.


#7

These are good keep it up haha!


#8

Oh and after that someone else tried that, and they were a jerk and kept walking the dog on concrete. :-[ The one star had super beat rims after, but not as bad as my shutter.


#9

I was at a talent show at my cousin’s school and some kid was doing a yoyo performance. All he was doing was around the world, walk the dog, rock the baby, and some picture tricks (only the really basic stuff). After the show I asked if I could use his yoyo. It was a magic yoyo t5 or something with a semi-responsive bearing. I did a speed combo, RIB stole, Eli hops and a horizontal brain twister combo. Next thing I know he goes to get his friends and I’m doing a mini yoyo routine for them. My cousin said that everyone at his school was talking about me for like two weeks


#10

Well there was this one time back in 'nam…


#11

So pro!


#12

When I got a free cinnamon bun for yoyoing outside a restaurant we were waiting to be seated in. I ended up performing in the restaurant on that day too.


(major_seventh) #13

I wanna be like “OOOO I can yoyo! Can you rock the baby? I can!!”

“Ummm, well this is a modern yoyo, they’re unresponsive.”

“What does that mean??? Can I try? I’ll do it over the grass.”

At this point he’s thinking, Hmph, noob.

Then I proceed to lay out all my speed combos, triple brent stoles, fingerspins, etc.

THEN walk away


#14

I meant A yoyoer sponsored by GSquared at PAX east! He was really nice. I know his first name, but not his last. His name is Grant. HES WAY COOL


#15

I was there today with my Code1, I didn’t see any other yoyoers. There was some diabolo though.


#16

Yeah, they were here last year. This year I didn’t see much for skill toy acts. Then again, I didn’t see much for acts because we had younguns with us. :slight_smile:

Well, on our way home from a vacation to LA, we stopped by Porto’s bakery and I was yoyoing a little, then mark mcbride walks up to me and we start talking. He gave me so much good advice that my play has been improving faster than ever!
