Inferno Yoyos is a small independent yoyo company run by me (Nate) and my Dad (John).
We started Inferno Yoyos after going to PNWR in 2018 and finally discovering the community I had unknowingly been part of for many years by then. Getting to know the yoyo design process by talking to the various amazing creatives in the yoyo business had little me thinking, "Oh, I'm totally doing that." I ripped one of the drawings off my bedroom wall for a yoyo design called the Sonar and got to work quickly after that.
With a batch of 100 and a newly created Instagram account, my marching around with the yoyos I made quickly caught the attention of the yoyo community. Like wildfire, IFYO's presence in the yoyo community erupted as Dad and I hopped from contest to contest. Since we had some traction, another design came off of the wall, the Twilight Phantom. A signature yoyo for myself was on my yoyo business owner bucket list, so selfishly enough, I checked that box sooner rather than later. But, as it turns out, a lot of other people liked it too, so we gave the Twilight Phantom a tour across the states as well.
A third design was in the works when the grand slam of COVID, school, and cancer left our company dormant for a long time. Yet, our community was still following us closely, buying our yoyos, and supporting us just the same. So now that I'm on my own and studying at Berklee, it's time to give the community what they've been waiting for. Stay tuned for awesome things to come!
