  • Show Us Your Waboba Contest

    Post by Jordan on June 29th, 2011

    A couple weeks ago, one of our fans, Diana, took her new Waboba with her on her trip to Brighton, England. It was going to be the first time she was going to play with it. Unfortunately, the weather was cold and rainy the whole weekend, but that didn’t stop her from playing with her Waboba in a different way! She made the most of it and shared her pictures with us on her blog, like this one…

    Diana inspired us so much, we want to see where you take your Waboba ball(s) for this week’s Waboba Wednesday giveaway! Take a picture like she did and share it with us via Twitter – @wabobaballs or on our Facebook page – facebook.com/wabobaball. If you don’t own a Waboba, no worries. We got you covered. Just take a picture like this one when you imagine your Waboba napping on a hammock after a day at the beach.

    We’ll be giving away a few prizes for creativity and coolness (that’s right, more than one prize), so show us your Waboba ball(s) – imaginary or real. Plus, in lieu of Fourth of July weekend and the excellent opportunity for someone to take a picture of their ball with fireworks in the background (hint, hint), contest ends Monday, July 4, 2011 at 11:59pm EST.

  • Waboba and +H2O Team Up

    Post by Jordan on June 28th, 2011

    We are very excited to officially announce our partnership with +H2O, a global community made up of water enthusiasts on a mission to promote clean water awareness. +H2O was founded by professional windsurfers, Levi Siver, Jake Miller, Keith Teboul, and Pascal Bronnimann and has grown to become a platform for water awareness that brings together a community of athletes, conservationists, non-profits and corporations to create purposeful solutions that facilitate positive change on a local to global scale.

    Without water, we wouldn’t have Waboba. Not to mention the obvious –> we would we even survive. As the +H2O team says, “Water is our life force.” So its up to us, you, and everybody else to protect our natural playgrounds like the beach and ocean, and take care of them for future generations to come. So we’re going to team up with +H2O for events like fundraiser tournaments and beach clean ups. Even more exciting, we are going to create a special limited edition ball with 20% of proceeds donated to various water charity organizations! Oh yes.

    Stay tuned for more! We can’t wait to help make some positive change this year with our new friends at +H2O. If you would like to help us and get involved, please email jordan@waboba.com.

  • Waboba Street + Wall Ball

    Post by Jordan on June 28th, 2011

    Summer fun tip #2: Play Wall Ball with the Waboba Street! And then run through someone’s sprinkler to cool off for old time’s sake.

    Lets be serious. When’s the last time you played wall ball? Head outside and play a game. Heck, why not reinvent the game with a Waboba twist. If you do, be sure to share your game idea with us!

  • Waboba and Barbara Streisand?

    Post by Jordan on June 27th, 2011

    That’s right. Waboba and Barbara Streisand together in one sentence, thanks to Kurt Shemanske, last week’s Waboba Wednesday winner. Kurt said, “Waboba will soon be talked about like Barbra Streisand. (and you guys will have your own song too.) In the mean time, this is a good one to play Waboba to.”

    I listened to it before I had my morning coffee. Needless to say, I didn’t even need my coffee after I listened. It’s a crazy fun pick me upper alright. Listen for yourself:

    Post by Jordan on June 22nd, 2011

    This Waboba Wednesday, let’s crank up the music for some prizes! We need some new tunes in our life like woah and we want you to be the one to help us spice it up. What do you listen to before you go out? What’s your happy song? What song gets you pumped up? What new band should we check out that’s on the rise? You get the idea. So in order to be entered to win a Waboba prize, all you have to do is recommend a jam one of the following ways:

    * Share a music video with us.

    * Tell us to your all time favorite song,  what you are listening to now, or  what you listen to while playing Waboba.

    * Dedicate a song to Waboba.

    * Do any of the above by posting on our wall – www.facebook.com/wabobaball or tweeting @wabobaballs.

    If you can’t think of one right away. No worries. You have until Sunday, June 26 to suggest a good tune. Winner will be announced Monday, June 27th. Let’s keep it upbeat  like this one… (which I like listening to when I play Waboba)

    And not depressing like this one…

    Let’s hear what you got!
