My mate lost a jazz in the canal at birmingham during a gig, cos some drunk show off decided that he'd try and do some contact diabolo. What an idiot.

At least it wasn't a finesse

The bottom of a lake.  :D  I like doing tricks while standing on an air-matress and every now and then I drop the diabolo. Most of the time I find it though. I even have some videos.

I have them on a DVD and can't find the original ones. So I will find out how to rip them from the DVD and post them as soon as possible... :)

Alright here it is http://media.putfile.com/Diabolo-59  :D

The quality is really bad, I used a crappy digital camera. This was last summer. I wasn't very good back then, I still aren't, but I'm a LOT better now.  :)  I didn't do any "big" tricks I was mainly fooling around. The biggest problem was that it was difficult gaining speed with a wet string and a wet diabolo. As you can see the diabolo doesn't stay stable and this makes it almost impossible to gain speed. For some reason this happens with a wet diabolo.  :?  This summer I'm planning on trying two diabolos on the mattress.

The video is really bad, but enjoy anyway!  :D

The strangest place would probably be a tree :) Managed to get my sticks up there aswell. Getting it back was the fun part.. poor tree

Ive left a set of sticks at the cinema once, but have never lost a diabolo (unless you count my last GF alwys stealing my circus :roll:  :P ).

Once i got a frisbee stuck in a tree, used my diabolo to knock it free. Damned aerobies.
If you see me please feel free to come over and give me some advice. Thanks in advance.

I use red and black circus's, wear to much black and will be at the BJC.

I would call the fire department and say that my cat is stuck on the roof....
some people think they are better because they can do something better

And then what?? The cat just flyed away? On, offcourse its been kidnapped by aliens!! No better!! It commited suicide because of all the diabolo`s around him...

Couldn`t you just take a ladder? And when the building is to high, usually there is a indoor ladder at the top floor wich takes you to the top.

my first diabolo:mb harlequin. 2 days old fell in our pond.
when i suddenly realised that that thing was sinking. i ran  to the pond to take it out. was bit scared: pond is really deep 8) (had only dry sweater)

at grandma's garden i was doing 2 high with the harlequins. I knew that one mistake would let the diabolo fly over the fence in the garden of the neighbours. but i couldnt stop. Well it happened. but the pink one landed first on the roof of a house and dropped in the damn garden from 2 houses further. lucky me, someone was home...
cheers:)

Two times has my diabolo fallen into the gutter in front of my house. Luckily i was able to get them back. They also tend to get lost in the bush by my house too, but I always get them back after looking hard.
Go Draco with your Diabolo!
