Tony Frebourg also has one I believe, but that one is similar to Twin Spin's

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


Gear / Re: Sundia evo, hard or soft cups?
« on: March 07, 2020, 11:33:03 PM »
Hey Tipper!

Contrarily to Jannis, I'm on the hard cups' side.
In terms of soft cups hurting less, hard cups aren't really that violent, I'd say they hurt a bit less than Taibolos, or as much as Epics do.
And although it's true that people have broken some cups, as long as you don't play outside under 10-12 degrees, I think you should be fine. I've been using hard cups since 2017 for high as much as for low and I've never had a problem.
Last point that'll definitely go against soft cups : when you drop a diabolo, the soft cups transmit the energy of the shock to the rings of the diabolo, which are not as capable of absorbing such a shock, and I've been seeing many posts about rings breaking recently.

As for G3 cups, the only difference to G2 hard cups is that the edges of the cups are about half a millimetre thicker (a difference that one can however notice) and they should thus be a few gramms heavier. You also have transparent color choices, other than that G2 hard and G3 hard are very similar.

I hope you can get a good overview with both our comments! And no matter what choice you make, choosing evos is already the best choice you could have made  ;)
Welcome back!

Thank you all!

As Arjan pointed put, it's so nice that many of you got motivated by this year's collab project, and this plays a big role in keeping our tradition alive.
Of course editing isn't to be forgotten, but the better the clips, the better the collab!

Thank you again for enjoying, sharing, liking and being part of our active community 😉

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)

Hi everyone!

Thank you for submitting your clips!
If you're still waiting for an answer from me, it's because I'm still reviewing everything.
I hope to release the video by Christmas, we will see how that goes according to the next 2 weeks.

If you haven't submitted anything but still feel like you really want to, you can still send me something this following week, and depending on how far I will have gone with editing, you might be able to make it to the final video ;-)

Enjoy your adventscalendars and sit tight!

Hey y'all!

October is coming to an end, meaning you have one month left to get your camera ready an film some beautiful tricks outside - or wherever you find a cool place  :-D

Dear community,

Just a quick reminder that this year's collab is happening, and that it will be very nice :D
The deadline for you to send clips is November 30th, and I need you to make this project an awesome one!

Just remember to film your coolest trick in HD, and to send it to me with your name and city.



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!


I'm not a pro but I'm definitely motivated to edit!
I've edited the French collab ( in 2017 and it gave me experience 😉

So good! The movements are very nice-looking and super clean  ;)

« on: February 05, 2019, 07:14:52 AM »
That project is very good idea!
I've got a playlist on youtube that regroups many good videos from the years 2009 - now, most of them would probably have their place in there  :)

Sounds good Milek!
Take your time don't worry  ;)

That's a good idea to give a bit more visibility to diabolo in the juggling world ;)

How has JTV been going these last years? I'm wondering if it's not sort of dying, in which case it'd be great to revive it with a bit of collaboration vids.

Sent for me too  ;)

Thanks Wis!

Performing was a lot of fun and I wish my camera had a focus as detailed as Tim's really, but I'm sooo happy to have the full act on tape!
I'll try and work on more fluidity when I can.

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!
