The Yendor Interview

Yendor Martikonis is perhaps the most enigmatic figure in freestyle. A staple at nearly every major freestyle event over the past decade, Martikonis has chronicled freestyle yet remained elusive. Everpresent but hard to spot, Martikonis more than anyone has offered the perspective of a freestyle observer, albeit an observer with an astounding knowledge of the sport. Always in the right place at the right time, Martikonis has seen many of the pivotal moments in freestyle and overheard countless revealing conversations among elite players.

Whiz Rings

Hi everyone, spent the weekend playing with my new Whiz Ring from Was really awesome. I learnt UTL airbrush and hand guides, chest rolls (the rolls still need a bit of work though) and almost pulled off a scarecrow brush. If you havent tried one I suggest you do. They are really cool.

New ZMachines

In 1992, JT Thorne showed his first disc spinning contraption, the Disc Popper. A few years later, he introduced the ZMachine, a portable training device that allowed freestylers to spin discs at high speed then lift them into a delay. The patented invention was an immediate hit. New players could get the feel for a delay instantly. Experienced players loved the superhuman spin produced by the ZMachine and used it to learn difficult technical moves and attempt longer, previously impossible combinations.

The ZMachine was out of production for a while, but Thorne is back with a new design and is taking orders for new ZMachines at

Dave Schiller Sweeps 2004 World Beach Invitational

Last month, Pipo Lopez and Toddy Brodeur won the Jammers Championship in Florida. This month, Pipo traveled to the West Coast, teamed up with Dave Schiller and won the World Beach Invitational in Ventura, California for his second big win in a row. The man is on a roll.

Meanwhile, Dave Schiller swept the Open Pairs and Mixed Pairs titles as he and wife Amy defeated Dave Lewis and Cindy Kruger in the Mixed final. Schiller hasn’t traveled much in the past few years because of injuries and other commitments, but he has won nearly every competition he has entered. There is no arguing that he is still at the top of the game and is a furious competitor.
