The Traveling Throw is looking for participants for Round 2 of our Seasoned Traveler Project

The Traveling Throw is excited to announce Round 2 of our Seasoned Traveler Project. The MonkeyfingR Tri-b will be making its rounds again and this time it will be joined by something special from Recess Intl. We are looking for several people who would like to participate and can commit to a few guidelines. Each participant will be given 4 weeks to film and 1 week to edit a video. The participants will be responsible for shipping costs and will be required to meet the deadlines set at the beginning of the project. Once we finalize the list and the schedule, we will touch base with each of the participants and then publish the schedule with their names to add a bit of accountability. The whole purpose of this project is to help expose people to modern throwing so your videos need to filmed in public places where you can interact with people and we encourage you to bring your thrower friends along to help. If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of or just have some more questions about the project, just shoot us an email with the following information to project@thetravelingthrow.com

The Traveling Throw Presents: Street Team Member Paul Bovenkerk

The Traveling Throw is proud to present our newest member to The Traveling Throw Street Team: Paul Bovenkerk!

Paul first caught our attention with his YYE Battle of the Elders submission (which if you haven’t seen it already, make sure to go check it out) and we’ve been following him ever since. After chatting with him for a while, it was clear that he would be a perfect fit for the Traveling Throw Street Team. We asked Paul to share a little more about himself with everyone and this is what he had to say:
“Well I’ve been playing bass and guitar in punk bands for the last 8 years. Love traveling wether its a road trip or a big round the world journey (went earlier this year to eyyc and last year to Tokyo for wyyc)
I’m a ceramic tiler by day too 🙂
I got into yoyoing back in the craze in the 90s then forgot all about it until 2014 when I came across the ken garden video of Ann Conolly and was totally hooked on it again
I love it because it’s like a zen level of relaxation that helps with depression and anxiety, and through instagram and going to contests I’ve meet so many amazing people and the community as a whole is so welcoming and helpful”
Please join me in welcoming Paul Bovenkerk to the Traveling Throw Family, we’re really looking forward to working with him!

Special Edition 1/1 Ramblers

As some of you probably know, we originally planned on having a clear/silver Rambler at release. We were really excited with the way they looked; unfortunately we were not happy with the finish. The yoyo did not play the same as all the other Ramblers and instead of selling something we were unhappy with, or scrapping an otherwise good yoyo, we sent them to our friend Matt over at Adventures in Anodizing, who turned them into something better then we could’ve imagined. Because of the refinishing, they have a hint of vibe, but they still play amazing. Each one is a unique work of art, and we plan to do something special with this release. Keep an eye out for further details.

The Traveling throw presents: Street Team Member Anthony DeSana

I’m proud to announce our newest Street Team member Anthony DeSana. I had the chance to meet Anthony at the 2016 Virginia State Yoyo Contest and right from the beginning his enthusiasm and professionalism towards the community made it clear that he was going to be a great fit on our team.

Anthony returned to throwing in June of 2015 after finding one of his childhood yoyos. Since then, Anthony has become an active member of the Tiki Tiki Yoyo Club in Woodbury, New Jersey where he enjoys learning from and teaching new tricks to other members of the club. He will be competing in his first competition at The Ringmaster Classic (New Jersey State Yoyo competition) on April 9th.

Anthony decided to film at his alma mater, Seton Hill University. While there, he played collegiate lacrosse and graduated with a degree in psychology.

After taking a short break from the program, Anthony will be headed back to Lexington, Kentucky to continue a PhD program at the University of Kentucky. He hopes to spread his love of yoyoing upon his return.
