ive been seriously thinking about getting a club going up here. also a school but i thought id create some interest by having free weekly lessons first. very few jugglers up here though, dont know if it will work, only about 70000 people in the region. firejams have worked well here, maybe an arvo juggle followed by fire??
also with fulltime uni, 2 jobs and other sports its hard to find time.

ive got yohos, and cds fit perfectly in there too. i made up some metal blades and attached them to my diabolo as a fan, it worked but you couldnt put your fingers in there!
also balloons fit in any diabolo, ive been wanting to try helium ballons to do big throws.
sand and stones are easy to throw in when its spinning.
sandwiches!! haha

i made my sticks yesterday wahoo!
i left the tip uncounter sunk, and the string is fine after a long play. i left it so i can counter sink it if i choose. theyre 33cm long and work great, nice weight. only cost about A$5.00 lol, i got the aluminium from some old devilstick handles. just need some good string now.

General / Re: what do you view diaboloing as?
« on: January 24, 2007, 10:48:03 PM »
for me its a hobby and apart of my jobs. i think it originated as a chinese toy, so its just fun!
it has potential to be art and sport, depends on the person

josh! how ya goin?
i found that site you were telling me about. yeh julien was mad. if anyone here lives in sydney go into the city and watch his amazing diabolo show, or just goto the sydney juggling convention, i think he just got an invite there. also for will, he should be at the juggling convention in tassie, psycus pete too.
thats not the matt who done the fire circle is it? i recon marbo and kong win the prize for best poi style, marbo played like a crab (with skill) haha classic!
ill add a few things to here too

hey is it better to have a crator tip (like most) or a rounded off/out one with the string coming out the centre? it will be coming out of a wooden core, so ill have to smoothen and seal it, maybe use graphite powder.
im going to make some from 10mm (2mm thick) alu tube filled with dowel and drill it like the henry's handles to secure the string, just not sure how i should do the ends yet.
also whats a good length to make the stick?
