The weather in germany is the same as in the netherlands. It looks very good and it is a tiny bit sunny, but when you go outdoors you aren't really able to do some nice things with the diabolos like genocides or other stuff. To practise two or three diabolos is nearly impossible, because of the wind.

Glad to be not alone in this, but it just sucks so badly. I really wanted to practice my 2 high (yes, I know, I should be able to do it by now), but the wind just blows them away. My record is 7 catches. How bad is that :s
some people think they are better because they can do something better

I like them both but a 720 is harder  :wink: I've done things like seeing how many 330's I can link together without a 2.  My record is 5.

Yes, it's been looking good round here today.  Hopefully it'll still be this good over the weekend.  I'm looking forward to being able to get outside in the evenings again.

Mot so much a slow down as a complete stop for me............ for good reason though, just became a dad for the second time (now have a four day old son to add to the 2yr old daughter)  :D

Needless to say, the diabolo's are now gathering dust (other than my daugter building towers with them).

Hoping to be allowed out once a week for jugging club but other than that nothing for a while.

Finally I could go outside and play diabolo, but our yard is bad place to practice diabolo....  :?

i think it's time for me to move outside soon too, considering that the people living above me just hammered down on my ceiling after a few drops on my floor. surely it's not that loud? i have to practice, it's actually part of my job to learn new diabolo and juggling skills!

oh well, summer isn't too far away now.

Oh yes, finaly there are some nice spots where the snow has melted. It wasn't too easy to find dry places. But anyways it was great to get outdoors.
I even had some trys with 2 high. Not too much succes, but couple of times when I got +5 catches felt just awsome. I had great fun today.

I've got the opposite problem.  I just came back inside very frustrated.
The return of spring here in the american south means the return of the humidity that plays havoc with my string. Imagine working on vertax when the whipping actually slows down the diabolo!
