It’s finally here! On Friday January 24th at 7pm (mountain time) we are going to be releasing Palli’s brand new signature throw, the Puffin 2, in our store.

Yesterday CLYW Team Member and current Czech National Champion, Petr Kavka, had a triumphant day for the first Czech YoYo Cup Contest of 2014. He ended up taking 1st in the X-Division (throwing a Yeti) and 2nd in 1A (throwing a Bonfire). If this is any indication of how 2014 is going to go for Petr, this is definitely going to be another amazing year! Petr ended up using the same super emotional song (the Funeral by the Band of Horses) as Zach did for his freestyle at Worlds last year.
Check out Petr’s 1A Freestyle!
Last Friday Harrison Lee was invited to join the Barenaked Ladies on stage for their concert in Vancouver, BC. Three years ago Harrison had the opportunity to perform on stage with the Barenaked Ladies and since it was such a big hit with the crowd they asked him to join them again! The adventures Harrison has experienced over the last few years have been incredible, all thanks to his hobby.
An interesting fact about the Barenaked Ladies is that Ed Robertson, the lead singer, was the president of his high school’s yo-yo club!
Congrats Harrison! You never seize to amaze me!
