« on: November 09, 2008, 05:14:48 PM »
With a school camp we had to give a show for all those students.

And I did a diaboloa act! It was the first time I performed. I diddn't had a routine I just did stuff but.. I was SO NERVOUS! So things I can do in my sleep normally failed now..

I hope you guys can give me some advice and tips =)

« on: November 01, 2008, 08:09:05 PM »
Hey, I'd like to go out on the street in a big town to diabolo and put a hat infront of me  :-D Like a guy who plays guitar but everyone does that so I would like to diabolo.

But I don't dare it yet though ... Anyways anyone of you has some experience with this? And did you even got money? ( I'm just putting the hat their for fun its not all about the money =P ) and do you need some sort of license if you want to do that?

Performing / Before starting diaboloing on stage
« on: October 28, 2008, 09:01:58 PM »
Hey, yesterday I did my first performance ever! And I'm gonna post a video anytime soon to get some tips.. But anyways I learned one thing..

I cannot walk on a stage and start diaboloing right away! I MUST do something before it to feel more comfortable because I was soooo nervous really.

Now I'm wondering do you guys and girls have some tips for things you could do that just takes like 30 to 60 seconds before you start diaboloing?

Thanks in advance!

General / Progressing
« on: October 21, 2008, 11:08:32 PM »
Today I went out with a friend to film myself for my 2nd diabolo movie.
But what I noticed is that I'm not really happy with the way I diabolo.

Why? Because.. I only want to progress! In a way of learning new tricks! For example.. I see a view tricks like sprinkler, fan, continuous genocide's. And All I do when I go out and diabolo is trying to learn those tricks! And when I can do it I sometimes repeat it but then I got other tricks I see and I go focus myself on those!

So whats going wrong with my way of diaboloing? I only want to learn learn and learn al the new cool looking tricks, and I don't focus anymore on my old tricks.

So when I went filming today all I could do was like hmm a whip duicide and cut or speed up for another trick. Do a finger grind and cut! Mini genocide cut!

Hey.. I can't link tricks together! Now what I am trying to say is.. When you do the same as me stop trying to focus on new tricks for a while! And focus on your hold ones! And then I don't mean keep practicing the tricks you can already do but try to link them together!

Focus on creating combo's! I know most of you already do that but some don't and I'm saying this to the people that don't do it.. Because It really feels stupid when you see other videos and people can do long sequences of basic tricks and you just can't..

Take a look at Martijn his blogs and link it to this one.

Alright thats all I had to say =)

ps: If anyone has a good idea for a title please say so

General / Diaboloing meets winter
« on: September 26, 2008, 01:02:19 PM »
What do you guys and girls do when winter arrives, and its cold outside!

I kinda stopt diaboloing now beceause its just to cold outside.. And I am no longer outside the whole day, so I don't grab my diabolo's that quickly anymore..

And it kinda annoys me to because I gain skill every summer, this would be the 2nd summer this is going to happen that I don't diabolo in the winter. So i progress half the fast.. If I would contineu in the winter I would be able to do so many new things in the summer but yea.. I don't!

What do you guys do in winter concerning diaboloing?

Tricks / Vertax genocide I can do it!
« on: August 15, 2008, 02:13:44 PM »
Since summer last year I've been working on vertax genocide.

I started out on practicing vertax took me a long while to complete that.
Then I had alot of problems with the stopover.. Yes the stopover I couldn't do it.. After this the trowing part came. Took me a long long while to get that under control. Finaly Catching.. Since summer last year I was trying to catch a vertax gen. Not until summer this year I managed to catch it! 1 year for the catching part.. Its a feeling that you need to get, somepeople get it fast and some well they just don't.

Unwrapping: From summer this year until a week ago I finally managed to get it under controll. I first did the unwrap couterclockwise..

And finally catching the right stick and rewrap it and contineu.

Ty everyone who helped me on this tread and on msn!

So don't give up! No mather how long it takes you will be able to do the trick you want. It just takes PRACTICE!

General / Your dream place to diabolo?
« on: May 28, 2008, 11:33:30 AM »
Hey Couldn't find a topic about this so here it goes!

Do you have a dream place where you want to diabolo?
And do you think you will ever be able to do it? Or maybe you have already done it?
And also do you maybe have a trick that you realy wanne pull of there? ( lets say you want to do 3d high on top of the mount everest! )

I think many of you have a dream place where you want to diabolo like on top of the Eifel tower?

When I saw a summit of the Mount Everest on discovery I thought it would be fun to do 3d high there haha.

But I realy wanne diabolo on the eifel tower once :O Can't think of anything else at the moment.

General / Guinness book of world records
« on: May 16, 2008, 07:00:35 PM »

No matches found when looking for diabolo records. How come?
Did nobody every tried to create diabolo records?

Can we create diabolo records? For example

Siteswaps? Excalibur genocide's in a row? Amount of time doing a s fan, amount of time doing a grind?

I was pretty amazed when seeing that there where no diabolo records  :-\

I'm New / What causes the string to wind up?
« on: April 18, 2008, 05:30:54 PM »
Alright.. I've been wondernig this for so many times and I just can't seem to find a way to stop this.

I'm using a  fitnesse G2 wide axle and a yellow henry's string. 

Well I can just feel it before my string even winds up when I'm doing a chinese orbit the diabolo just doesn't feels to roll good on the string.. I dunno how to explain it but maybe you know the feeling.

And as soon as you go speed up your diabolo it will wind up.

Does anyone knows the problem of this? Is it that the string got wet? There is rust on the axle, or the string is not good anymore?

My string is not even a week old btw..

I hope you can understand what i'm trying to say..   :)

Tutorials / Wrapped Mini genocide V2
« on: April 13, 2008, 04:50:51 PM »
Alright.. Here is a new tutorial about it.

- Start doing a left backside. ( Trow the diabolo up on your left shoulder hight and catch it from above )
- Now with your left stick go around the diabolo > that direction.
- Release your right stick to the left and make sure it goes behind the string
- Now pinch the string and the diabolo will fly off the string and the string Will make a circle and it will re wrap it around.

I hope this helps. If anyone got any tips then post it :)

Do you just speed up do a trick speed up do a new trick?

I'm just wondering how everyone over here diabolo's
