I've been out of the game for about a year now, but WOW diabolo has evolved so much.

So this isn't exactly diabolo but I'll share it with yall here anyway since offstring yoyo is semi-related to diabolo I guess. It's pretty amazing.

So, this is a video I made a year ago. I don't think I've ever posted it here.
Looking back at it, I realize that I pretty much haven't improved since then, except for my 3d. If anything, I've gotten worse. :'(
Anyway, yeah. Enjoy I guess?

Ok, thanks guys.
I think I started losing that motivation around after learning 42's. Or maybe it was when I started having to practice, practice, practice (to the point of no fun) for shows. Now I practice maybe every other day for like 15-20 mins to keep that muscle memory so yea, practice is pretty harsh I guess.
Anyway, at the beginning of that time period, I tried juggling. To this day I'm stuck on getting solid 5 balls runs. Juggling is pretty boring now too.
Currently, I'm alot into yoyo. I don't know if this hobby is taking me away from diabolo, maybe? It's just so easy to create stuff with the yoyo since I have so much ahead of me. I can explore.

I feel like I just need to learn something new that will lead me on a new path. I think I just got stuck or something and I need something to dig me out of this rut like a new trick (like Tyson said). I definitely agree that inspiration is going to take ALOT of effort.
I will try do some frequent, short diabolo sessions this week, thanks again guys.

One last thing, to Tyson. What did your break look like? how much or would you even practice diabolo at all?

- I think motivation is one of the key things when it comes to learning. Yes you can FORCE yourself do an hr of practice a day, but if you don't WANT to then you'll be real inefficient at learning. I lost motivation learning 3 so stalled in my progress for a long while. I ended up buying new diabolos and that was enough  to motivate me to learn 3.

I'm straggling a bit off topic, but how do you guys find that motivation? I basically haven't learned anything new since like a year ago. Every time I practice, it's like JT said, I have to force myself. (It's not really even practice, it's more like repeating basics so I don't forget how to do them.)

I feel like diabolo has been becoming more and more boring lately. I've not been having fun, ergo resulting in no learning whatsoever. What do you guys recommend me to do?

The entrance doesn't look bad. Try making large async movements with both arms to make a bigger shuffle. That helped me at least.
Are those all even the same diabolos?

So gud.

Seriously though, everything was so smooth and clean. This is by far one of my new favorite videos.

Hello all,
This is the link to the info about the Eastern Yoyo Competition, being held in Toronto. I know it's not a diabolo convention or anything but if any of you are coming then I will bring my diabolos along too.

Hello all,
In December I'm doing a ten minute diabolo show for a children's Chirstmas party. I not so much worried about how to fill the time but how to keep the audiences attention for that long.

Gear / Re: So i bended the axle on my Diabolo.
« on: September 08, 2015, 11:15:05 PM »
Do you know how it happened?
I know my friends Sundia Shining's axle snapped in half due to abuse.
What diabolo is it?
I've stripped 3 Finesse and a Taibolo axle, all of which were replaced by finding the right size at the hardware store. I guess you could do the same. Easy fix.
I don't really know anything about bending it back though. I guess you could try, um, pliers or something?
