    What up dama fam? I’m Davis Bergstrom I’m 24 years old and I am from Portland, Oregon. I’ve been playing Kendama for almost 5 years now started in late 2014. What I like about Kendama the most is it’s not about skill it’s about the growth and the feeling of lacing something new. It never changes
    My ig is @biggucci_dama
    Go give @g1990boy & @sacred.g.spot a follow!!!

    Hi everyone, I've been in the game for about 11 years now, and I still love it! Not that active on social media, but I do enjoy watching Kendama videos here and there!
    Make sure you check out my UK sponsor, Royal Kendama for something a little different!

    Also, please check out my latest video! Nothing too crazy as most things were filmed for the scenery, but there is a little wing gem in there for all you stall freaks out there... Cheers!

    What’s good everyone!

    this is Jonathan here from Singapore . 28 this year and on the older spectrum of playing kendama - the knees ache a little longer each time.

    been playing kendama for about 5.5 years now, and am running Cereal Kendama with my best friend for 4.5. Very late to the show here but really hoping to expand my knowledge on kendama news and meet new people.

    my IG is : @JonnyyRamone and you should follow my partner @wceriously and the bossman @azleonhart

    Yo my name is Rob I'm 37 and my 16 year old son and I have been playing kendama since last Christmas. From Columbus Ohio, we don't know any other players aside from friends we have given some kendamas to.
    I get hyped learning something he can't land. But he's got me on lunars.

    @Garrett112 see if you can touch base with @KeeganS. He should know about the Boise area. Welcome to the boards.

    We've got a small handful of players in Boise but we don't meet up to sesh much anymore unfortunately (adult responsibilities tend to get in the way).
    We used to have one at a local owned toystore which made meeting during the colder seasons bearable but that slowly ended (again, adulting).

    But I do know that one of the other teen players in addition to myself will be down to try to start a new weekly meet up, it's just a matter of finding a place to hold them at as everyone is either coming from near the downtown area to all the way from Nampa and/or Meridian.

    But leave me a DM, it'd be great to have a group back together to sesh with it'll just be a slow take this time around compared to previously.

    Also if you do get an instagram gimme a follow at @thekeegansablan
    Our group chat on instagram for the Boise players isn't all that active anymore either but it's the best way we have to keep in contact with each other.

    Hi, not really, there´s a spanish kendama online shop which distributes Krom, and there´s sweetkendamas Spain too. I´ve also ordered some Krom stuff from their headquarters in Denmark and although I had to pay some custom fees at home, I got everything ok.

    What’s up guys!!! I’m Alex Tanguay, I’m from Barrie Ontario Canada, about an hour north of Toronto. I started playing kendama on labour day 2019 and I’m just beyond stoked to keep improving my skill set. It blows me away how much progress I’ve made even in this much time, kendama is so damn cool that way. I’m also super stoked to see the local scene keep expanding and having more meetups pop up over time!
    Instagram links are: @tangydama - Dama page started this month!
    And also @tangyglass ; if you’re into the cannabis scene as well!
    Cheers guys hope to see some new faces pop up!!

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Joe Piro and I'm from Chicago, IL. I've only gotten into kendama a few weeks ago but I'm already practicing a few hours a day. I'm mostly just excited to have a new hobby that I really love and can do around my work schedule! I'm also excited to head to the Chicago meetups!

    Edit: I don't have any social media so no IG tag to follow
