Community & Events / Top 20 Diabolo Players of 2020
« on: January 22, 2021, 11:08:39 PM »
So in order to keep this forum alive, I'm also posting the result video here :)

For those of you who might not have followed what happened over the last 3 weeks, Damian, Aldair and I organised a top 20 players as voted by the community over on the diabolo_world instagram account . We released smaller clips of the result on instagram the entire week long, but we were really looking forward to showing you the final, whole video. (on a more personal note, I'm happy with the way it turned out, and it proved very challenging to find good tricks with a good pixel quality for every single person in the video)

I got some of your feedback on whatsapp already (@Wis huge thanks for the effort of writing something so personalised) but feel free to discuss what you think about it here too if you feel like it :D


2 Collaboration Video / It's here! collaboration 2019
« on: December 25, 2019, 09:29:56 AM »
Hi all,

Merry Christmas! It's finally time to share our yearly group project. I spent a great part of December editing and it was both challenging and highly satisfying.

Thank you so much to each and every one of you who sent clips, sent recommendations, or said you were looking forward to seeing the final result!
I truly hope you like it ❤️


(and of course as always I cannot wait to hear your feedback, be it positive or constructive)


Hey all,
So, it looks like I will be editing the collab this year! Let me first say that it is an honour, I'm thrilled to handle this project :-D

The last two years, as you probably know, the collabs suffered a lack of participants and overhead organisation. Therefore this year, I think we can all aim at a well-prepared project with quality clips (aaand editing too of course) and a greater amount of participants. Growing up into the diabolo world, l always considered good old collabs a huge source of inspiration that showed the complicity of our community. Maybe this one can inspire young players who are starting out there as we speak!

Now met's move on to the rules :

- take your time to film. I would like the collab to air around Christmas time (early January if I end up having exams, which I cannot predict as of now), and decided to set the deadline to November 30th.

- you may send as many clips as you like. However if I receive stuff from too many people, I might have to include only one clip from each of you. We want the collab to have rhythm, please think about it when filming tricks. It's a good idea to avoid (too) long combos, and consider using two different angles if you want your trick to look more lively.

- as per usual, send your clips through any website like Please send them to (yes, I have a postcode in my address, yes, it's been harder and harder to live with that). Write me with your name, city and country.

- I will only accept standard video formats - no instagram square videos or whatever - and quality from 720p onwards. Nowadays this quality can be achieved with a simple GoPro and some phones (please be careful if you're using a phone, I know it's many people's only cqmera but the result is often not that satisfying. Borrow a camera from a friend if you can!). Video quality really is one of the most important points so please use a good device!

- film in a nice location. It doesn't have to be fancy, a simple tree behind you is largely enough, but I would like to avoid clips shot against the sunlight where one can't see anything, or shots of a messy area.

Some additional commentaries :

- If there is any sort of issue whatsoever with your clip.s, I will write you back to inform you about it.

- I will be at the EJC, you can email me in advance if you want me to film some tricks on the site. I only own a GoPro 5, nothing fancy, but if you feel too unsure about your device's quality we can always work with mine.

- it's always a good idea to send bloopers, shots of your diabolo, a close shot of your sticks or whatever can make people breathe in between two crazy clips in a video.

- music is always a hard part to handle when editing a long project, if you happen to enjoy a band or a song that fits the diabolo mood, you can send it to me and I'll take the recommendation!

- be creative 8)

I'll be happy to answer any questions!

So now shut your laptops and go outside and practise! ;)

Keep on spinning,

Videos / HUNGRY (some weird stuff)
« on: May 16, 2019, 01:08:46 PM »
Hey all!
This is my newest video, HUNGRY.
The concept I explored is really special, but I still hope you like the idea.

Fun fact, 2 months after having created most of the tricks for the video, I decided to watch old VotW and found out that Luke Burrage had actually done the same thing back in 2004 😅 I put the link to the VotW in the description on YouTube.

The concept goes along with Henri's click tricks very well, I have to thank him for inspiring me massively.

Feedback is welcome, especially for such a strange series of tricks! Also I would encourage you to try this thing, there probably is a lot to be done with it!


Videos / Weekend uploads
« on: November 11, 2018, 02:50:04 PM »
Hey diabolo people!

This weekend I filmed a video in the forest, here is the link  ;)

And today, I uploaded a performance from last week, if you're keen to know what my act looks like  :-D

I hope you like them both!
If you have some feedback (especially on the act, if you're used to performing or have a critical eye) I'd be happy to hear it!


Videos / French Convention video
« on: July 23, 2018, 10:01:03 PM »
Hey there!

We made a little group video at the French Juggling Convention last week!
Unfortunately I didn't have time to ask Thomas, Théo, Jérôme, William or Quentin for a trick.

I hope you'll like it anyway!
Feedback appreciated ;)

PS: no, I had not brought any tripods 😅

Videos / Sparkling Water

Hi diabolo people,

Yesterday I felt like making a video, here is the result:

I really hope that you will like it, if you have any feedback I'd be really glad to read it ;)

PS: at one point I randomly hit my mum's rose tree, and the way the petals fell on me while I was finally succeeding in that trick (which I had been shooting for a good 45 minutes), I couldn't help but make a stupid edit out of it:

VIPS (very important PS):
I did intend to make the video look professional at all.
The only camera I had with me was a Gopro-like one and dates back to 2012. Thus, we have here an extraordinarily-blurred-barely-720p quality.
The same thing goes for the awesome quality framing work that took me approximately 12 seconds per shot.
Also, I filmed it in my garden.
To sum this all up, I made that video for fun, mostly to show you my technical and creative progress over the past 6 months.

Hey people !
So I made this video as a milestone for my five years on youtube.

Practice / NK Jongleren 2017 Diabolo Players
« on: January 12, 2017, 11:39:13 AM »

This weekend I went to NK Jongleren in the Netherlands, decided to make a little group video, just to keep a memory of this very nice moment  :)

Practice / Stream and rocks, by Chloé
« on: August 09, 2016, 03:01:16 PM »
Hey people!!
This is my new video, Stream and rocks!
I filmed it 3 weeks ago in Southern France. Unfortunately I didn't have many tricks to show so the vid is a bit short and some tricks are rather basic, but I really hope you guys enjoy it anyway !!

Criticism is very welcome  ;)

General / A bit of support for Paris and for France
« on: November 17, 2015, 07:19:53 PM »
Hello all!
I guess you all know about Paris' attacks which happened last Friday. Since I live in the affected country, I was wondering how to show my support with a diabolo and ended up taking a photo of and Eiffel Tower. Here it is :

I thought it would be great to create a topic where everyone who wants can post a picture of themselves doing the trick, so if you're interested, don't hesitate!

Bonjour à tous! J'ai décidé de montrer mon soutien à la France après les attentats en postant cette photo d'un Tour Eiffel.
Je pensais que ce serait une bonne idée de créer ce sujet pour que tous ceux qui le veulent postent une photo de leur Tour Eiffel pour montrer leur soutien à la France. Donc si vous êtes intéressé par ce petit acte d'empathie, n'hésitez pas!

Hey guys ! I would like to go to EJC 2013 only during one day, and I had a few questions :
- Is it possible to buy any dayly ticket ?
- If so, should I buy them on Internet or can I buy them in Toulouse the same day I want to go there ?

Thank you for answering my questions !
