So we did it. We went to Iceland to check out the show and spread some Smashing YoYo Company love. We all had a great time. Especially because it was the Brits first chance to meet Abby in person and she’s as wonderful as we’d imagined she is. Roland, Victor and Abby did a fantastic job of representing us and where we’re going, I could not be more happy or more proud to have them with us.
Anyway, onto the good parts. Here’s Abbys routine for the Women Division.
And who could forget Victor?
We’re already planning our trip to Shanghai and probably Cleveland too! We can’t wait to meet you all there. In the mean time, enjoy this picture that one of our party took.
Yes that’s right! Smashing will be at the 2017 World YoYo Contest in Iceland. We’ll be posting updates on our Instagram stories throughout the contest so come find us if you’re around. You’ll get to meet Victor, Roland, Abby and myself. Don’t be shy, come and say hi!
In other news, since we’ll be away for a while, the store will be going offline on Tuesday (8th Aug) and will come back up on the following Tuesday (15th Aug). Don’t worry though, we’ll have something special for you soon!
We love seeing your photos and tricks that include our yoyos. We love it so much we’re going to be giving away two yoyos every month to our two favourite posts that include a Smashing YoYo Company product and the #smashingyoyos hashtag on Instagram.
The rules are simple. Upload a photo or video that includes a Smashing YoYo Company yoyo or product and include the #smashingyoyos hashtag and we’ll pick our favourite at the end of every month. We’ll make a post on the first week of every month to announce the winners. It’s that simple.
The first winners won’t get the yoyo in the picture, they’ll get what we have at the time (and we have some cool stuff coming!)
Just remember, it’s about our favourite post, not the most posts so spamming won’t get you a win.
Want to win a Pinky Minky Interlagos? Well it’s pretty easy to give it a go. Record your best trick that’s 10 seconds or shorter from throw to catch, upload it to Instagram and tag it with #smashing10seconds and the team will pick a winner on the 7th July. You can enter as many times as you want. Simple.
So to be clear. The trick must be 9.99999999 seconds or less. You must record it and upload it to Instagram. You must add the #smashing10seconds tag to the post for us to find it. The team will pick a winner on the 7th. You don’t need to add any other tags or do anything else though you’re welcome to if you want. If you have any questions, drop us a message here.
Our resident film making hero, Roland (AKA SLVRANDBLK) made a video showing of how effortlessly Victor is able to pull off his crazy tricks on his new signature yoyo, the Interlagos. What better way to celebrate winning his UK National YoYo Champion title and releasing his signature yoyo than with a video from the after party of the day it happened.
The Interlagos will be available here on Saturday 10th June or on the 11th June at YoYo Village and YoYo World for £70 for splash editions or £65 for raw. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!
