Who is your main inspiration? Please don’t forget to tell how you knew them.
My main inspiration is Gentry Stein. One day, I was browsing around yoyo related stuff. Then, I saw Samad Patel’s formspring account. Not to mention, Samad Patel is also one of my inspirations. A person asked him there, “What videos have you been watching recently?” Samad gave three links. One was Graeme Steller’s “Zen”, the second one…. I forgot, and the third one… was Gentry Stein’s California States 2010 Freestyle. The first thing I noticed was his name. “Gentry” is probably one of the coolest names ever. So I clicked the play button, and I watched the video. I loved his style. His style was insane. I said to myself, I have to meet this guy. I really have to. It’s a must. I hoped Gentry to go to BAC. BAC!!! It was a great day, a lot of players around, and it was awesome. I saw a guy with a blonde hair, really tall, and had a deep voice. Gosh. It’s Gentry. “Hey! Aren’t you Gentry Stein?” “Yeah! Sup bro.” I talked to him for a few moments, he was really nice. Probably one of the nicest person I ever knew. Next thing I knew, he was the same age as me. Heck, I thought he was a Senior. He was also nice enough to teach me a trick. And from there, he has been my main inspiration.
