FlipSpin, YoYo Komunidad is the extreme yo-yoing community of the Philippines. The group traces its roots back to early 2000 when a handful of yoyo enthusiasts banded together to form a yoyo club of 11 members. The FlipSpin community has grown to about 600 yo-yo players nationwide.

The FlipSpin community is an independent organization dedicated to skill toys, most notable of which are yo-yos. As a group, FlipSpin is an active participant of the international community of play. And as such, members are actively involved in events and product promotional campaigns. In addition, all members are active in competitions in the Phillipines and abroad. Some of the more experienced and decorated members have also been hand-picked to be part of internationally recognized teams.

The group, as well as individual members, have also been interviewed, featured or showcased in various magazines as well as TV and radio programs.
