Quite honestly I don’t remember. Sometime Summer 2009 I picked up a Duncan Imperial. I brought it to McDonald’s and was yoyoing there. Early 2010 I wanted to “Upgrade” and my dad told me to get a Duncan Butterfly. Well I got bored with those and upgraded yet again to the Duncan Mosquito around August (The blue one Here is the one. I obviously modded it later on). This is around the time I started to make my first yoyo. I had difficulty learning Trapeze and “Quit.” Sometime around (I think) February 2011 my friend brought a Mosquito to a Boy Scout meeting. I had completely forgotten about it. So I ordered a KK bearing and got on my way again. In March I Wanted to upgrade, so sticking with Duncan I ordered a FH2 2010. On my second day with it I started having bearing problems. I joined and posted a new thread on a different forum and was on my way again (My username comes from the trick I was working on at the time, plastic whip). Mid-June I decided to get a DMII and I ordered it near the end of the month. This is around the time I joined this forum. In August, after talking with someone I decided on a Northstar and a Big Ben for 4a and ordered them when I got a pair of Crucial SPR’s.

To sum that up you can say I got seriously into yoyoing in February, 2011.

You can say I’ve been yoyoing for 2.25 years or seriously yoyoing for 8 months (This is what I think of).

I first tried yo-yoing around five or six years ago. In my mind, I feel that I wasn’t serious about it back then. Therefore, I consider September 2011 to be my starting month or “serious reboot” month.

so this is my 8th month doing it. :slight_smile:

#12

August of this year roughly, started with a freehand two and a metal drifter bc they were easy to obtain from the local toys r us. Not bad throws but def glad I came across this website and have learned what I have this far


#13

Lmfaooo im 13 and i started wen i was 6. I broke my arm, so my dad got me a duncan dragonfly, and i learned to throw with my left hand. I learned how to do some basic looping tricks, andmy dad got me a fast 201. Once i mastered some string tricks like brain twister and trapeze, i got a dif r yo barebones. I started to get into some tricks like thr mach 5 and i wanted to learn boingy boing. After a while i got bored of yoyos, and eventually got my cast off, and didnt touch a yoyo for about 4 years. A couple months ago, my dad opened a package in front of me that contained 4 yoyos. The yyf superwide, protostar, pgm, and adjustomatic. Surprisingly, i went straight for the protostar, and tarted trying to bind with it. I relearned some old tricks, and my dad showed me this site. Since then ive been hooked on yoyoing, and its just so much fun! If it werent for this site, i would have still been frutrated not being able to learn boingy boing, and would have gone back to skateboarding. As of now i have a broken left thumb, and it makes it so annoying to try and do certain yoyo tricks. I cant wait any longer until its healed! Let the record show that im right handed, and throw with my left.

Well thats my story! Whats urs?


#14

Sometime towards the end of July this year.


#15

I got hooked up by yoyoing when I got my Hitman Pro, I consider that as my starting point (back then when I was 7, I think I yoyo but don’t care too much), so January 2011


#16

October of last year! So the 1 year mark is soon!!


#17

December I got a Butterfly as a gift it was sooooo cool. C=


#18

Started March sometime in before my birthday, the 13th, ordered a veloctiy. I guess my interest with yoyos was on and off but never tried first saw Hiroyuki Suzuki in 5th grade got a brain then i think i got a throw monkey one year but was not serious. So my 7th month anniversary just past.


#19

August before a 30 day trip… got a dollar store yoyo as a joke, but reminded me of being a kid again. Found a toys r us, got a duncan metal drifter and the rest was history.
