Kendama Connects Worlds.
Boo Johnson is a professional skateboarder for DGK, Grizzly Grip Tape, Diamond Supply Co, Ethika, Remind Insoles, Bones Wheels, Thrasher Mag, Weedmaps, and Raw Papers. On top of that he owns Pharmacy skate shop in Long Beach, California and runs his own clothing brand Just Have Fun.
Reed Stark knew Boo in the past and showed him kendama at Coachella 2017, but not everyone falls in love with the toy immediately. At the 2018 X Games in Minneapolis, Reed taught him how to do an earthturn and it was over. The sheer joy that Boo had in that moment proved to Reed and everyone else at Sweets that he would be a great candidate for a signature kendama.
“Boo is a pro lifer and it shows. The amount of positivity and motivation he brings to the world is unmatched by anyone I’ve ever met. Constantly thinking about the well being of others can be overwhelming, but not for Boo. He’s a beaming light people strive to be and the man earned it all by himself.” -Reed Stark
We are beyond excited to add Boo to our crew, and to present the first Boo Johnson Signature Model!

:THE BOOST SHAPE:
The Decade Mod was the first Sweets Kendama to introduce a new shape in years. The extreme playability of this new design meant it had to be brought over into other products we offer. With some tweaks we are proud to offer the BOOST to the world. The BOOST is pretty much a PRIME on steroids. The cups are slightly bigger, stalls more pronounced, and there is a balance bevel in the bottom cup to make lunars slap with ease. Unlike the original Decade shape, Safari BOOST kens are not made with laminated layers of wood but a solid piece of maple.
BOOST tamas are also slightly larger to help improve play and match the bigger cups.
