Anything great happen in the past two years?
« on: February 18, 2016, 02:47:23 am »
Hello everyone!

It's been just over two years since I last logged in to the forum. I remember around that time my last piece of string broke and I never got around to ordering a new roll. Yesterday a friend gave me his old pair of sticks so I decided to get back into diabolo.

It's great to see a lot of the old members still here and all of the new members who have joined since then too!
So this is probably a silly question but has anything unique happened in the two years I was gone? Exceptional videos I should watch, new records, 4 low progress, new vertax tricks etc... (just to save me a bit of digging right now, but I'll do some too). The one thing I did check and was surprised about was no new videos from Eljas or Joona (I was always a fanboy :P)

Cheers!

Not sure if you were around for this or not, but the full Planet Diabolo Project released in December 2014.

(To the best of my memory at least)

EDIT: Nope, I was wrong, that was 2013. Nevermind me.

But you are right that planet diabolo had a highlight, since January 2015 the main part of the DVD is buy-able through vimeo

Yeah I dropped off the forum pretty much right after that, thanks Icebox! haha
