“I started Eternal Throw back in 2011 after a trip to the U.S. National YoYo contest in California. I had been yoyoing for a long time at that point and wanted to start giving back and investing more in the community.
The vision was simple, make yoyos, make some new friends and have fun! In the past 7 years we’ve definitely had a lot of fun! We’ve also done YoYo demos over the years for places like Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald house, a local Children’s Museum and many other places. One of the most memorable yoyo demos was with Boeing, the manufacturers of Jets, asked us to come entertain at a party they were throwing for Singapore Airlines. That was a blast!
YoYo clubs have a special place in my heart since it was the Rocky Mountain YoYo club in Denver, Colorado that introduced me to modern yoyoing about 20 years ago. Eternal Throw wouldn’t exist without that club.
We’re a family, I love my team members and really appreciate everyone who has contributed their ideas and time to Eternal Throw. -Free”
“Hello! I'm Levi and I've been competitively yoyoing for four years. The first time I started yoyoing was when my sister was born and I received a 'big brother bag' with a yoyo inside. When I threw the yoyo down, the string snapped and I was immediately hooked.
One day I was looking up yoyo videos and saw Gentry Stein winning the World Yoyo Contest. I was amazed by the video and the fact that there were yoyo contests. That year I went to the 2015 MWR yoyo contest competing in the amateur division. I ended up placing 8th out of ten contestants without a routine. From there I kept pushing to accomplish the goal of winning a yoyo contest.
I started building routines and kept competing until I finally accomplished my goal of winning the amateur 2017 Minnesota State yoyo contest. Later I ended up winning the 2018 MWR yoyo contest were I met Lucas Gremler. One month later I became a team member of Eternal Throw. I am honored to be a team member of Eternal Throw and I’m anxious to see how I can improve as a competitor and as a team member with an amazing company!
My name is Kyle and I started yo-yoing when I was in the fifth grade. All it took was getting a yo-yo in my Easter basket and an old VHS tape of Arne Dixon teaching tricks to get me hooked into something I’ve carried into my adulthood.
I’ve traveled to competitions all around the states and Canada and have met so many wonderful people in the process! Now, as an elementary school counselor, I get a chance pass along the same excitement to the kids I work with every day. Yo-yoing helped me find a way to express myself as a kid and I hope that with it, I can help the children I work with find there own positive ways to express themselves!”
“I was 14 when I really began to pursue yo-yoing, but I think I was about 10 years old when I got my first yoyo. It was an orange Duncan Imperial that my Mom bought. I played it until the string broke or I lost it. I missed school the day the yoyo guy came because I never saw him but I definitely saw the effect of him being at school. Everyone had a yoyo and it was really popular. I got really good at making my X-brain sleep for a long time. Once the yoyoing fad had faded so did my interest in it. Later in high school I saw someone doing yoyo tricks similarly to the way I do them today. I was astonished a yoyo could spin for so long and that you could do so much with it. I asked him about where I could find a good yoyo and he directed me to a few online yoyo stores. I ordered a Duncan Bumble Bee and really began to yoyoing.
A few years later (‘07-‘08) I competed at the Pacific Northwest yoyo contest I believe I got 8th place in 1A.
These days I don't throw as often but still really enjoy it as a hobby and enjoy showing people tricks.”
Hey everyone my name is Josiah. I've been playing for around 7 or 8 years and I came on to the Eternal throw team a few years ago. I was a part of the Midwest yoyo my freshman year of high school. I moved to Washington State where I met Free, the owner of Eternal throw. We quickly decided that we wanted to rekindle the flame that had once been Seattle yoyo Club. We started having regular meetings and the community began to grow which was a very big inspiration to us all. The Seattle yo-yo scene has expanded greatly and has become one of my favorite places in the community. We’ve been working hard to design new models and expand our team by adding powerful new players such as Lucas and Levi to our team. I love my team and I love my community and I cannot wait to see where things go from here.
I have been yoyoing for 7 years! My grandparents gave me my first one and I’ve been yoyoing since! I started competing in talent shows like America’s Got Talent, then went to competing. My first competition was the MWR amateur division. This contest led me to competing in local competitions and Worlds in Tokyo, Japan! I joined Eternal Throw in 2016, and have loved growing with the company. I’m looking forward to competing in future contests, and competing for Eternal Throw.
