He is in fact from Costa Rica and his name is Edwin Viquez.  We discussed that video before:

I thought this might have come up before--I missed it the first time.  Perhaps we might relocate these posts to the other thread?

I was impressed with the way he manipulates the top with his hand (@ 2:08) to induce precession and flip the top over.

The foot and pocket tricks are fun, I especially like the way the top emerges from pocket and goes back to hand still spinning!

The ball/top balancing act at the end are what reminded me of Fushigi.

This guy has got some great moves!  I love the double toe pop!  I've seen lots of folks end with the top or yo-yo in the pocket, but never an in-n-out!

I thought of Tom Connolly when he does the two tops on a straw on his nose when I saw this guy do his balancing stuff.  Well done!

It is not the new name for contact juggling but the name of the ball. This special ball is easy to use because it has the ability to spin, levitate, and float. Of course, this thing can't function without the performer. I think playing with fushigi ball is a real fun.
