YoyoExpert Fixed Axle Challenge: The Kickflip Suicide Shootout!!!!!!


(ed) #1

How many Kickflip Suicides can you do in a row?
(Ok, I’m not sure, but the most I could fit into an Instagram video was 5.)

Anyway, that’s the question we’re asking with this little follow-up to last month’s Fixed Axle Challenge. You’ve got 1 WEEK to see how many of Drew’s trademark trick you can hit in a row. The winner will be crowned Kickflip Suicide Shootout Champion and take home a sweet (and huge) Free Spirit yo-yo from Once Upon a Tree!

Rules Rules Rules!

  1. You may only use a FIXED AXLE YO-YO.

  2. You must post your YouTube or Instagram video AND the number of consecutive Kickflips you hit (in text) in this thread.

  3. The contest ends on 6/10/15 at 9pm EST. No posts after that time will be considered.

  4. You may try (and post) as many times as you like before the countdown is over. (Bluffs and psych-outs are encouraged, but obviously trash-talking will get you disqualified.)

  5. All Kickflips must be clear and in frame on video.

  6. You MUST regenerate the yo-yo back to the hand after your last Kickflip. NOTE: you may not bring the yo-yo back after MISSING a Kickflip. Any misses will disqualify your entry!

Note that this contest is open to ANYONE with a fixed axle yo-yo - not just those who participated in the Fixed Axle Challenge. Do YOU have the consistency and focus needed to be crowned Kickflip Shootout Champion??? You’ve got a week… Better get flipping!!!

Oh boy. I’m in!

Edit: YOu can bring the yoyo back to your hand in any way after you’re done, right?

Was just doing this last night! Should’ve turned the camera on! I’ll see what I can come up with.

Here we go again :smiley: I’ll give it a shot.

Yep! Fully wound to the hand however you please.

I’m stoked to see what people can get. Id love to see double-digits!


(major_seventh) #6

Definitely double….

What if…. triple…… :o someday


#7

It’s like Flappy Bird. Once you get into the rhythm, you can go on for a bit

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Time to waste the next 168 hours doing non-stop kickflips.
Well, not waste, I meant enjoy.

Soooooo just to clarify, I miss my last kick flip but it spins enough to for me to regen it back. That’s all good?


(ed) #9

GOOD POINT. No I would say a missed kickflip disqualifies your entry. You need to go as far as you believe you can WITHOUT messing up. I’ll add that in to clarify.


#10

Now that is going to be tough.


#11

Since psych-outs are encouraged, I take that to mean mind games are, too.  Here’s the video from the last fixed-axle consistency challenge I was involved in. (I get too into these things.)

Is there going to be a losers bracket??? I can land a kick flip about once every 4 or 5 tries!!! ;D


#14

Uffda
It took me an hour of filming, but I finally got the 10 I was going for!

On the Moon, too! Nice touch! Gauntlet thrown!

I think most of us are just waiting last minute for something to beat. :wink:


(ed) #17

yeah i assumed double bass was doing that too. i think 10 was probably just a warning shot. :wink:


#18

Hmmmm… hmmmm… 10 huh… hmmmmmm… :wink:


#19

Yes. Yes it was :slight_smile:
No one had posted yet so I thought I’d set the bar at a nice round number!

I always get to seven and then miss.
