Jakub Velek

Sometimes (rarely) there are certain people on which you immediately see that they love creating tricks and they have a born talent for yoyoing. And one of those people is Jakub. He started playing at the end of 2012 with a Butterfly XT and he’s hanging out at the store basically ever since. The amount of tricks he’s able to come up is beyond our belief. We can’t even comprehend how he can remember them all. His love for yoyoing also shows in the number of contests he’s going to. He’s gathering experience exponentially thanks to that and  he’s firmly placed in the top 10 players of the Czech YoYo Cup. Not only does ho express his skill on stage, he’s also one of those players who’s always happy to teach tricks given the chance. And that’s one of the key characteristics we look for in a team mate.
