A pretty awesome experience!


#1

i was with my mom at costco. i was bored, so i took out my yoyo. someone shouts at me “Are you a spindoctor?” i said no, i wish i was good enough to be one. he said “no, youre definetely good enough to be one!” i was shocked and flattered. then he introduced himself as sonny, owner or Anti-Yo! i was like “OMG!” he gave me his email and asked me where i lived. i said millbrae, and it turns out he lives in san bruno! he said hes trying to organize a meet, so im pretty exited! he then handed me an unnamed anti-yo prototype (TO BORROW)! it was boss, so ill describe it as best as i can:

63g ?
56mm?
v shaped, similar to code 2
anti yo side effect axle system

o now im inspired to try to become a spin doctor, i dunno how much itll cost or what i have to do to become one, but i just wanted to share this experience! ;D

That’s awesome!

Not too many yoyo company owners where I live :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

Sweet!


#4

That’s pretty cool. Maybe I’m totally wrong, but I was under the impression that spindoctors is a club that anyone is free to join as far as I know.


#5

You’ve been grossly misled, jhb. There’s a whole battery of tests that includes subduing a lion with two handed looping, among other secret quests. :wink:

Cool experience you had, subbreh!


#6

#7

#10

#11

Woah lucky! I wish that could happen to someone like me!

#13

Sunny is a chill dude he stayed down the hall from me at nationals he gave me and my buddy anti yo stickers


#14

That’s so awesome! Sonny is the nicest guy on the planet!


#15

Awesome! I would be stoked just to meet another person who throws… to meet an owner of one of the coolest companies around, who is apparently a nice guy to boot… must’ve made your week!


#16

made my month!

EDIT: wait no national yoyo contest made my month… I met AUGIE and andre and the mad yoer, and logi and qwertyo and many others there! BUT STILL!

2ND EDIT: this made my last half month then lol :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

Man, I’ve never even met another yoyoer. To meet the owner of a company must have been awesome!


#18

So true!

One of the best experiences was when he picked me up at the airport for BAC 2008. What a great fella!


#19

Not only he makes excellent yoyos, he also makes nice denim pants from what I’ve heard. Gotta get myself a pair of Self Edge denim jeans now [though it will burn a hole in my wallet] :stuck_out_tongue:
That’s cool that you met Sonny, though!
