Vortex Suicide Tutorial
« on: November 15, 2008, 12:08:53 am »
I made a little tutorial on how to do vortex suicides. Barely a tutorial actually, I'd rather call it a video with some pointers on how to do clean vortex suicides.

The reason I made this tutorial is the fact that I've seen a lot of people struggle with vortex suicides, not understanding the actual concept of the trick (/my perception of the concept of the trick).

Very nice tutorial that goes into some of the more subtle points to doing this well. Nicely adds to the (now) ancient vortex tutorial that John did back in the day.

Not that it's something to worry about in the video, but just so we set the record straight and this doesn't catch on, the plural of vortex is apparently "vortexes" or "vortices". Ain't English a wonderful language? ;)

Defo, it's what cracked the trick for me when I first learned it (doing it from a Fan helps with learning the strong vortex) and it's what I need to explain every time someone wants to learn this trick. Thanks for the effort Marijn!

damn i can never get a strong vortex...
whenever i try it slips down the string and it ends up being an inbalanced circle around. :(
does this have to do with my braided nylon string? its not diabolo string i think.
This was a 5 star post ★☆★☆★

Great tutorial.  I finally learned how to do a vortex(albeit weak) thanks to this.
