BTW - i noticed that your orbits are going to the wrong direction ( can i call it wrong ??? ), for righthanded, orbits should be clockwise, so the right hand is the dominant hand, and the diabolo is accelerating. Try to improve that one.

They're clockwise from my point of view. Am I being a colossal idiot here? Diabolo comes over the top from my left to my right, rolls down the string in the direction of the spin... (What a terrible explanation)

Damn, I really enjoyed that. The whole thing had a great style to it. Good choice of locations as well.

Thanks for watching it guys.
I've been diaboloing for two maybe three months now.
Thanks for the advice, I'll keep it in mind.

I've ordered a few things from oddballs and they've been okay.

I'm aware that I'm not that good, but I did just feel like making a video.
Picked up loop diabolo yesterday, not too taken with it.
Looking forward to getting my finesse this week if butterfingers get their act together.

Not sure why I'm posting this, just to make you guys feel better about your own skills I guess.

I hate the english weather sometimes, but I wouldn't trade it.

Is GV still going on at Bath uni? I thought Chiok is or was in that.

It is and so is he. But he probably has no idea who I am as I'm so infrequent and he's so famous and cool.

In terms of exercise I find loop diabolo is much more tiring, mainly on the triceps(?).

I'm getting really sick of the cold and rain in terms of practising. At least my room has 9 foot ceilings so I can do most things, but nothing high. Bath is good for old tall Georgian buildings.

Yeah, I think you're right. I'm pretty sure G3s have three of those notches and G2s either have 1 or 2, I can't remember which.

Hello, just joined the forum. I'm at the University of Bath, UK. Been diaboloing for about three months now and still feel a bit crap at it.
I can do all the basics, you know, orbits, slowicides just to name a couple.
What I really need to learn are some more advanced tricks and really get into the flow of it, hoping this place can help.
Anyway, that's me and my reasons for being here.

When you consider diaboloing in the shower.........

Oh man I want to do that now.

When your girlfriend thinks of your diabolos as extra people in your relationship.
