VotW: 27 October 2008: The Void
« on: October 27, 2008, 08:21:57 am »
It's time for the s-fan of the week! Today we have an oldie but a goodie from The Void - a start that may help those of you just learning the s-fan, and an exit that will give a few of you a challenge.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a subconscious urge to watch jtv...

That was sweet. It reminds my of my sfan exit, only a much more 'pure' direct exit.

I'm pretty sure I saw this last year and had heard about it way before that. No matter though, a quality exit and pretty tricky to get working right.

I've just realized I've dated this wrong - today's the 27th!

I'll fix all this later.

Thanks for the kind words folks.

When I first wanted to learn the s-fan, about 4? years ago, and after I'd worked out that it was "one diabolo on each side of the string", these were the entrance and exit that occurred to me. The exit was a lot more ropey than the entrance, and at the time I was concentrating more on running/correcting the actual s-fan than sorting out the exit. After a while, I saw Fanman's pop exit, and adopted that instead (since it was essentially the same as my exit, but without any of that tricky underarminess). I only recently started having another go at the underarm exit, with a view to VOTW-ing it. It's still far from solid, but I'll work on it some more now, and look forward to seeing where you lot take it.

And thanks to Duncan for filming it for me.

Cheers,
The Void

Reminds me of the Void's memorable entry to the rec.juggling collab video a few years ago, except with this exit he could walk backwards through the frame.

Nice idea Tom....

I was playing with this a bit more tonight, and I got it a lot more solid. The knack is to point the darkside stick more backwards and downwards to stop the diabolo from flying too far forwards. Probably an obvious thing to say, but I only just worked it out, and it might help someone.
