Jeremy "MrYoyothrower" McKay

Jeremy is the madman behind the Rain City Skills operation. He is the two-time Canadian National 4a Yoyo champion.

Jeremy has been playing with return tops for most of a decade. After recently discovering the joy of begleri, he’s had several designs produced with more in the works. Jeremy is also a musician, basketball player, and obsessed with Pokemon Go and Ingress.

Justin Scott Larson

Justin is the mastermind behind the design work for Rain City. Jeremy comes up with the stupid concepts that should be impossible and Justin says "Well if we bend the laws of physics and invent transparent aluminum I think we can do it." Having grown up overseas (Europe, Asia, Africa, eastern Europe) moving every 2-3 years, Justin went to high school in Switzerland. With a mechanical engineering degree and a masters in materials, Justin has worked on a U.S. Air Force flight test program. He currently works on advanced development programs - super secret squirrel stuff.

Justin has been playing with yoyos since the mid 90’s. He’s pretty sure he still sucks at it.

Waylon Crase

Waylon Crase comes to us from Mansfield, OH. He picked up his first yo-yo on a whim, thinking it would give him something to do for an afternoon - that afternoon turned into years. Waylon is also a musician, bibliophile, poker player, and has recently become addicted to begleri.

Luna Harran

Luna has been experimenting with alternative styles of yoyoing for as long as she can remember. In fact, one of the first tricks she ever shared was a 1.5A tech combo. She finds the creative process of new styles, combined with the challenge of inventing and mastering new techniques, is the true reward of yoyo play, and she often also tries to develop this in her more standard yoyo play. 

Aside from yoyoing, Luna has her mind set on learning every skill toy she can get her hands on, which so far includes begleri, balisong, cardistry, penspinning, juggling, fingerboarding, and even her own invented "phone flipping". Luna is a long time speedcuber and mathematician, and is one of under 10 people in the world to have solved the 6 dimensional analogue of the Rubik's cube.

Jordan Walker-Jenkins

Jordan is a yoyo enthusiast hailing from Ontario, Canada. When he’s not practicing his speed combos or hop tricks, he can be found sitting in a corner somewhere listening to indie music with an ice-cold Canada Dry in hand. Jordan has been throwing for 3-4 years now and has a passion for teaching those who show interest. His other favourite activities include: running, gaming, watching movies, gorging himself at Japanese restaurants, and petting every cat he sees.

Tyler Hackett

​Ladies and gentleman, we present to you the Hipster King himself! Tyler is the real thing, what all hipsters aspire to be. He has been throwing for about 3 years in the solitude of Iowa. When he's not busy fishing, disc golfing, or enjoying a cold beer, you can rest assured you will find him with a yoyo in his hand.

Stephanie Honeycutt

​Stephanie is coming to you from small town Alabama (but it’s ok, we won’t hold it against her). She got into yoyoing in 2014 and is a happy hobbyist who enjoys showing off her modest skills in front of the dryers at her job. Stephanie strives to help improve the community as she believes it is the best part of throwing! Aside from throwing, she enjoys creating things and has dabbled in string making, case building, graphic design, wood working, painting, and crafting of all kinds. Stephanie also has a soft spot for stray animals and her household currently includes 13 dogs and 8 cats. When asked why she yoyos, she replies, “There is something amazing about the inner balance that I find while balancing this simple toy.”
