#WhipperSlacker Winners!

As said this was a contest for the coolest looking trick, utilizing whips and slacks, up to 20 seconds. What I did to judge the entries was simply narrow it down to my favorites based on the looks overall and technical ability 2nd. To help with his I even took my narrowed down list to a number of friends outside of the yoyo world and simply asked them which they thought looked impressive/cool.

With that said – here’s what we got!

#WhipperSlacker – 1 week left

Just a reminder that you have 1 week to get in those submissions!

  1. Post a trick to Instagram (and only Instagram) utilizing whips and slacks in the most visually artful and beautiful way. Of course you can have other elements in there, but the focus should be whips and slacks. (Instagram helps us keep track and is organized, this will be the only method of submission, sorry).
  2. Use hashtag #WhipperSlacker
  3. Trick must be 20 seconds or less
  4. Trick must be one throw only, regens are OK. This isn’t a craziest whip contest so going from whip to dismount to whip to dismount won’t score high.
  5. 1 entry only – Edit and remove the tag on older post if you want to change your entry – if you don’t remove the tag we take first entry.
  6. Trick must have been recorded and posted AFTER the announcement of contest – we will just take your word for it – don’t be a cheater.
  7. To combat the repost trend, if you repost the contest announcement you are immediately disqualified, even if you remove it. Let people know about the contest by posting a trick. It’s all about content generation!
  8. The most “beautiful” looking trick wins. Not the most tech, fastest, or most tricks, just the best looking use of the string itself.
  9. Contest will run for a solid 14 days -winner announced whenever we decide (pretty soon after it ends).
  10. Must have guardian consent to enter if you’re a minor in your part of the world.
