Yes, that is Whip. The video is from 2006; I don't know if he has continued playing. His is the brother of Titi Freak who actually freestyled in tops at worlds. According to Rafael (Red) there was not much top spinning left in the Brazilian yo-yoing community (but this may be changing with Fenix promoting it).

I remember talking to Rodrigo once at worlds.  It was something like 2009 or 2010.  I asked him about his top throwing and he said "Yes, I throw tops.  But I am not as good as my brother."
