To everyone who came to the inaugural West Coast Yo-Yo Championships, we would like to thank you for an amazing event!

It takes great people to run a quality event. In fact, it takes a lot of people. Thanks are due to the organizers, the competitors, the instructors, the manufacturers, and, of course, you, the audience.

We had a wonderful time showing the world what modern yo-yo play is all about, and we hope you did too.

We would also like to extend a big congratulations to 5A Champion and Duncan Crew member, Bryan Jardin, on a jaw-dropping routine! Check out his and the other winning freestyles below.
