Owen Ekblad

Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA

Owen was first exposed to yo-yoing in 2006 while vacationing in Texas. He was purchased a Duncan Tournament by his grandpa, and learned all the compulsory tricks along with his sister. His sister gave it up, he did not.

He’s a prolific member of the yo-yo community, and boasts having a unique style and personality. In early 2017, Duncan took notice of that, offering him a position on the team. Naturally, he accepted. He has flourished with Duncan, being given the opportunity to help with Duncan social media, and even create some content for the company. He enjoys pushing the envelope of what it means to be good at yo-yoing, and doesn’t see any end in sight.

Outside of yo-yoing, Owen is student working on an undergraduate degree in Mathematics at the University of Michigan.
