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

Jake is from Wausau, Wi. He picked up an old broken yoyo at his grandmothers house after diabolo-ing off and on for fourteen years. Like the magical device it is, the yoyo held him entranced. He played non-stop until his obsession lead him to TikTok where he dazzles the masses with his skills. He will be helping bring the Rain City team to TikTok for you all to enjoy. Or something like that.
When he isn’t throwing, he is spending time with his wife and one year old daughter. His other interests include: gaming, disc golf, juggling, longboarding, competitive nose-picking, and anime.
Ashley hails from the Twin Cities, MN and, uff dah, she's Minnesota Nice! She started playing with yoyos as a kid when they came in McDonald’s meals (Remember that?), but became obsessed with them when her dad sent her a yoyo for her birthday in grad school and she played during study breaks.
Ashley's style is goofy, confident, and care-free when it comes to mistakes. She enjoys collecting yoyos of all kinds, and never skips a beat when showing her love of yoyos to anyone who asks. When she's not throwing, she's looking for a dog to pet, pumping out a workout, watching cartoons, eating spicy food, or designing wacky t-shirts. When she got the offer to join Rain City Skills, she smiled and said "AAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!" That means she's happy to be here.
What’s up everyone! The name is Jakob Austin! I am a 26 year old music lover, plant eating, YoYo throwing human coloring book. I got my first YoYo when I was ten years old and quickly fell in love. In 2009 I was introduced to counterweight throwing and it changed my life. My style is a mix of E-Fan flow and tech combos. I’m always down to teach, learn and have some fun!
