« on: June 27, 2009, 01:04:24 PM »
At last after a very long time failing I have finally got normal genocides down fairly solid and I've also finaly manged to get my head round minigens too and landed my first one last night and this morning did my first genocide to infinte(ish) suicide.
Also on a non diabolo note I have finally learnt to juggle three balls only managed 15 catches so far but getting better. :-D

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?

About 3 years

2. What or who got you started?

My brother I'd tried with limited success a few times before but him getting one inspired me to buy my own and learn more than just throwing and catching

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?

The endless possibilities and learning anything new

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?

Only if you count in front of a few mates at parties etc.

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?

I can't juggle tried with three balls for ages just can't get my head round it :(

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?

I use finesses I have a g2 and a g3 my friend has a Henrys Jazz which is nice would like to try a circus. I have henrys carbons short sticks but I need new ones after i slightly cracked one need to buy some more thinking about getting some of the new mister babache ones. I like henrys string used to use green just switched to the new yellow and it seems good so far.

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?

1 because I'm still quite bad at 2 and take forever to learn anything new

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?

Whip catch to duicide or infinite suicides at the moment but I like anything new

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?

One of the most original diabolo act I've ever seen was this guy at the edinborough festival had and act involving multiple diabolos, wobble boards and coat hangers

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?

Genocides (still :-|) 2 diabolo suns and 2 diabolo speedwraps

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?

My brother we swap tricks all the time and compete a little:P

JiBe and the rest of tmfp, Ryo yabe, and  and the guys who made drop it like it's hot blew me away had not seen any good diaboloits really until then and loads of other people who have made vids I've seen on youtube and here too many to mention

I'm having trouble catching the diabolo in a wrap to do wrapped acceleration do you just do a normal throw in the shuffle or does it help to throw it a bit higher/lower left/right? I can do wrappped start so once I can learn to ctchit but also having trouble doing the similar trapeze stall on the dominant side
