5 Common Beginner Mistakes on Pyraminx
Just simple stuff that I see when I judge pyraminx at comps mostly. If you're sub 6 or 7 you should know all this already.

Pyraminx Tutorial: 1-Flip Method
Ok, so here is how I am going to give you the algs: first letter= which center you should place the edge over, then I will put a / And tell you which way each center needs to twisted (cw=clockwise ccw=counterclockwise). The alg will be directly below this notation.
alg: R' U R L R' L'
alg: L U' L' R' L R
R/ R ccw, L ccw
alg: R' U L'
L/ R cw, L cw
alg: L U' R
L/ R cw, L ccw
alg: L R L R' U' R
R/R ccw, L cw
alg: R' Dw R L' R' L R
R/R ccw, L ccw, B ccw

Congrats to Yulun Wu and Aniket Das for sharing the podium with me, and to Jules Desjardin for setting the European record average in the previous round.
More Pyraminx Methods: WO and Nutella
These are the fast/useful cases from the WO and Nutella methods. Some cases are not included because they are slow. Neither method is intended as a main method, and you really shouldn't learn them until you have learned 1-flip and Oka.
Listing the algs and the cases they solve is tricky, here's the system I'm using for Nutella: (place you should put the swapped edges R, L or F)/direction R center should be twisted(CW or CCW)/direction L center should be twisted/direction B center should be twisted.
so for example, R/R:ccw/L:ccw/B:none means the 2 centers on the front need to be twisted counterclockwise, and the 2 swapped edges should be on the right side of the U vertex.
R L R L'
L R' L' R'
L U [U] R' L R
R' U' [U'] L R' L'
R' L' Dw' R'
R Dw L R
there are 2 cases I didn't show in the vid that are decent, but not great. They are:
L R L U B
R' L' R' U' B'
For the WO algs the case identification will be the same, but without the letter that tells you where to place swapped edges.
R' L' R' L R
L R L R' L'
R' L R' L' R L'
L R' L R L' R

ugh, tutorials are hard.

Cong's Design Pyraminx Unboxing! | 2.67 avg12
Thanks for watching! This cube is very promising, I’m excited to lube and tension it. I also forgot to mention that I really like the tips of this pyraminx. I’m sure they would become even better with some break-in, too. I realized after the video was recorded that it said roncesvalles under every time. Sorry about that, I'm not sure how that got there.
Thank you to Moyu for sending me the cube to test. Check out their facebook page here:

If you are wondering why the average of 12 didn’t show up at the bottom of my computer screen (Where it normally would show up), I was using avg20 instead, to practice for the 20 pyraminx solves I’ll be doing at Nats (if I make finals).

Solve a Pyraminx With Only 1 Algorithm
Today you could be one of the few millions of people that can solve a Pyraminx puzzle. But, unlike the other millions of people, you would be one of the hundreds of thousands that can solve it with only a single algorithm. This is pretty epic!

Cubing Classroom Pyraminx Unboxing/First Impressions
This puzzle is very interesting. It is a very slightly modified version of the MoYu magnetic pyraminx, but it uses ball bearings for the clicking mechanism. It's performance is very good, but the tips especially tend to click with too much force.
It is not yet available for sale.

Pyraminx Tutorial: Oka Method
So, there you have it. Told you it would be crappy. I'm prepping for a large amount of dislikes. :) Sorry for going out of the camera, it's really hard to tell yellow and green apart through the viewfinder.
If you don't know the keyhole method, you should learn it first. Erik's tutorial is pretty good:
