So this is a kendama ball with a big groove in it like a yoyo. The kendama world and yoyo world has been merging a lot recently and this is a direct result. Definitely some really rad things can come of this. Can’t wait to see more and get my hands on one.
Sourmash just came out with his own full kendamas! I’m so stoked for the homie. He also redesigned his store and it’s looking better then ever. Now when you buy an epic Sourmash tama you get a dama with it, can’t argue with that. So go check out his new store and support an OG in the dama game.
Bryan Hansen just put out this sweet little promo of some wormhole trickery. It’s so rad to actually have people finally playing our damas and making videos of them. Thanks for the support BHC!
The homie Kristian coming thru with the mental juggling steez! Good luck in the comp man.
If you didn’t know already Haley Bishoff is the new Tribute member! Congrats to Haley and I’m hoping that her being on Kendama USA will get more girls into kendama. She is a rad person and really rips at dama. The “dama fam” is happy to have a new member as well.
"Footage from Damafest in Atlanta, the Spring Meltdown Jam at Snowvalley, Calgary, Edmonton, China, and beyond. Tricks by Eric, Matt, Trevor, Charles, Mathias, Turner, Alex, Jacob, Scott, John, Daryl, Kristin, and Rodney. Advice from Jake, KE special presentation by Benny." I’m not sure what is "mini" about this edit cause its almost 7 minutes long but I definitely enjoyed it. Super stoked on this.
This is Mathias’s first solo edit and god damn is it good. It’s got dama, ladies, art, KROM hops and figs. What more could you want in a dama edit? I’m definitely stoked when people show some personality in there edit. I feel like the dama game is growing so fast you really need to have more then just dama porn. Nice work guys. Go get yourself some KKKKRRRROOOOMMMMM!
So here it is folks. The new Mugen! This color is called Earth blue and will only be availible on this first run. You can only get one if you bought a tama or won a mugen during the Gloken auction. I’ve heard from other homies that some of the colors they have in store will blow your damn mind! Also I know they will be releasing jumbos as well. These Earth Blues are coming in at $130 which seems a bit high but if they can rival the quality of the old mugens $130 is a deal. It looks like the tried to make some improvements as well. From redesigning the logo, changing the slip stop, adding a new stringing method, and even a hole in the bottom cup. I can’t wait to get my hands on one and see how these things shred.

So it is finally here, Kengarden Roots Tour 2013!!! To find out all the details check the FB event page. Above is the amazing drawing Nik Stergios aka J. Beast made for the tour shirt. We will be selling the shirts along the way to help fund this adventure. I won’t really have time to blog while on tour so when I get back on the 30th normal blogging will commence. I have about 50ish tsunas to sell on tour so if you have been trying to get one, come on out to a stop and snag one. We have light brown and dark brown for sale. Also I will have more tsunas to upload to the site if you can’t make it to a stop to snag one. Be sure to follow me (dealwithitsf) and the rest of the dudes on instagram to see the shenanigans we get into. The hashtag is #kgrootstour2013. See you on the road!!!
Ruisch and Van Rasta just started a company called The Boss kendamas. For all you people out there that love bigger kendamas this is for you. Their first model is in between the Taiyo (performer) size and the emperor. Support people that have been in the scene forever. For more info check them out here.
