How to Do Yo-Yo Tricks with Paul Yath

Learn about four-time US National Yo-Yo champion and 2006 World Yo-Yo champion Paul Yath in this Howcast video.


Hi my name is Paul Yath and I am a professional yo-yoer. I own a company called Crucial and I've been yo-yoing for about 13 years. And yo-yoing is not just my job, it's my passion, my hobby, this is what I love to do. I love traveling, I love going to places and showing people my passion.

I started yo-yoing in high school when yo-yos were very popular and every kid in school had a yo-yo. And at the time I wasn't really interested yo-yoing, because in high school you've got to have this image of you know, you have to be popular and cool. People who were cool did not yo-yo and I was just like, whatever.

One of my close friends, he brought a yo-yo to school one day and he was doing all these kinds of tricks and I was like, "Oh that looks pretty cool," so he let me try and it and I was like, "Oh I can do that better than you.". I'm very competitive in nature, so I was just like, "Okay, let me borrow that yo-yo," and came back to school the next couple of day's and I already learned like, maybe five tricks and I was trying to just out do him.

That really pushed me to the next level and made me more interested in yo-yoing. I've been all over the world competing and I've won nationals four times, and I've won Whirls in 2006.

My main main focus now is not competing, but with my company, Crucial Toys I basically do my own designs and my own yo-yo's for players.

If you want to find out more information about my company Crucial you know, just go onto Google, type it up or if you want to see more of me, type my name up on YouTube, Paul Yath, Y-A-T-H, and today I'm going to show you guy's some yoyo tricks.
