Five years ago, André Boulay went to the National YoYo Contest and came home with three things: a sunburn, the title of National YoYo Master, and an email confirming the very first order placed at YoYoExpert.com.
Probably the most influential of all the National Masters, André’s tutorials have millions of views from aspiring yoyo players, and the number of people he’s helped learn to yoyo is incalculable. His work as a retailer has redefined the industry, and his tireless sponsoring and support of yoyo contests has been a game changer for many organizers.
So please join us in congratulating André and the rest of the YoYoExpert.com staff on five years of serving the yoyo community and industry as the largest specialty yoyo retailer in the world! And keep an eye on their website, as they gear up to announce some special deals to celebrate the anniversary.
YoYoNews co-founder and YoYoExpert.com owner André Boulay and his wife Devon welcomed their first child on July 19th! Pierce Olivier Boulay is 8 pounds of screamin’ awesomeness, and we can’t wait to see him at his first yoyo contest.
Congratulations to André and Devon!
