That’s right, the inspiration giant Guy Wright is going to join me for an interview this weekend, and I want to get the YoYoSkills readers involved. In the comment section below, enter a question that you want me to ask Guy. I will pick the best questions that work with the flow of the interview, and use them. “Letter Blue” himself! Get those questions in fast; I will take them until Friday at Midnight.

    Seeing you on youtube, I know that Elliot and you are the 2 main yoyoers around…Have you ever encourage other people to play?

    How did you learn tricks at first? (like split the atom, double or nothing, plan D, etc) Did you learn them from youtube?

    Yoyo is a toy afterall…will you still play it when you are 40+ years old?

    How do you proceed when you make a trick?

    How do SPYY spikes work?
    How expensive will your new signature yoyo be?


  7. October 30, 2009 @ 12:53 pm Adam

    Considering you do a lot of slack tricks, do you consider your string choice just as important or perhaps more important than your yo-yo choice? Like changing your string would effect your play more than changing your yo-yo?

    Have you ever been happy with any of the boutique strings, or do you only throw highlights?

    SPYY yo-yos are way better than YYF, right?

    Why do you smoke cigarettes? Do you think it’s cool? Should I start smoking? Please advise.

    How many years have you been yoyoing?

    How often do you practise yoyoing? Or do you just yoyo when you want to?

    Where do you see yo-yoing going in the coming months and years?

    Do you think judges at competitions should start awarding points at competitions for smoothness and style instead of awarding so much for speed?

    Have you ever considered changing your name to Stylee McSmootherthaneveryoneson?

    I second this question:

    “In a fight between Ed Haponik and Jon Rob, who do you think would win and why?”

    And, which one of these applies to you the most and why?
    1) The tricks (style) makes the yoyoer.
    2) The Yoyoer make the style.

    as well as:

    1) The yoyo makes the yoyoer.
    2) The yoyoer makes the yoyo.

    How has SPYY influenced you as a person and as yo-yoer?

    What motivated you to be sponsored?

    Guy, as a SPYY team pro… when will you be visiting Calgary?

    When / if you visit Calgary… would you be willing to come to a YORAD (Alberta Yoyo Club) meet?

    and finally, in this fully self serving questionnaire, do you need a ride from the airport?

    haha, thanks for this much anticipated interview, Doc!
