Practice / 4 Diabolo low training
« on: October 30, 2011, 08:51:53 PM »
I stayed at Folkerts for a few days last week and thanks to his throws i got to practise lots of 4 low.  I seem to be stuck between 15-30 catches, my problem is ajusting the pattern and getting back into the rhythmn. Ive found that i can get longer more controlled runs with a bigger pattern, but i do plan on lowering it when i have better control. I had the same thing when learning 3 low.

The plan was to film my 4 low progression over 3 days, but it rained all through the third day. I got quite a lot of runs inside, but the angle on the camera was too bad to upload. So this is just a short video showing some 4D practise over 2 days, not to be taken too seriously lol sorry about the cheesy video effects and music, I find it funny for some reason :P Enjoy
More videos too come soon, already started filming =] Oh and i almost forgot, i've now been diaboloing for 4 years!!!

Best attempts i managed to get on film the weekend i went to visit Folkert. My longest run was 22 catches but we were filming at the time >.< I still cant self start so i make no progress on my own and i have no one to throw a 4th diabolo in for me =[

Theres a couple of glitches at the start of the video but i couldnt be bothered to fix it. Editing on my pc is a nightmare.

My biggest problem seems to be that im throwing to far to my right and the throw height isnt consistant. My throw timing got a lot better towards the end of the visit.

Videos / Langerz 3 diabolo trick and some 42's
« on: August 04, 2010, 06:55:54 PM »
Nearly a year ago now langerz asked me to try a trick with 3D, i landed it after about a month and it also gave me the idea for my votw back in november. Anyway for some reason i never bothered to film the original trick idea until now. I was practicing the other day and noticed that i had it pretty solid so decided to film along with some 42's

Looking back on this now, im not happy with how i performed the trick. The exit looks messier than it felt, ill probably refilm soon.

Ive had this private on Youtube for a few days cause i think it sucks. But people seem to like it so ive made it public.
As most of you no string tricks arent my thing, this is my only string combo, im mainly 1D integral variations, 2D wirlybirds and 3D so im way out of my comfort zone here.

Decided i needed something so i could get used to using my new camera and editing software before i film for the collab and produce my own proper video. So i thought id do a quick 4 diabolo practice video, it was filmed a while ago only properly figured out how to use the camera and software yesterday and its taking me hours to get it to upload because youtubes uploader wasnt working properly.

4 diabolo practice video (11th september)

Sometimes i get runs to about 6-7 catches, ive pushed to 8 a couple of times. Couldnt anything like that on film tho =[ Anyone got any tips, i no not many people can run 4 on the forum, but any advice from anyone would be helpful.

I can open fairly well (not great) but im still far off being able to shuffle I usually get between 3-4 ott, im happy if i can get the red one back to my right hand  :P Wondering if theres anything obvious that im doing wrong. Hopefully someone can help.

I wasnt originally going to upload this, but i was cleaning up my videos today and decided to get rid of some as i felt i had to many messy 3D videos. People who have already seen this seemed to like it so i decided to upload it today in place of the ones ive taken down. Enjoy.

Ive changed my picture from 3D sprinkler to a hyperloop fan, on Firefox the image hasnt changed and i still have 3D sprinkler, on Internet Explorer it has changed to hyperloop fan. Why is this happening?

More of a technical progress vid than a smooth one, most of these tricks ive only just cracked this weekend, just wanted to show off what i could do :) they will get much smoother soon.

Dont expect anything stylish, smooth or original. I made this video cause i was bored and i thought it would be fun to film some diabolo in the snow (it was :D). Most tricks are just ideas i had on the spot, so there not practiced or smooth (i screw up quite a bit). I made this video for fun and i hope you enjoy it.

Thanks to Marijn for the name :p

Tricks / I just learnt to... (2009)
« on: January 05, 2009, 08:11:32 PM »
Edit by Sean, November 12 2009:
This is one of many "I just learnt to..." threads which was started by mrpink back in 2005. Its intended purpose was as follows:

When you learn a new trick you want to show it and tell others that you have achieved something new. This is a thread where you can tell about your latest achievements, doesn't matter if its the string climb or a solid four diabolo shuffle you just learnt, tell us about it! And let others be inspired by what you do!
The original "I just learnt to..." thread was the most popular thread on the forum. Long forum threads induce an extra burden on the forum database server, so to keep things running smoothly around here I have started archiving these threads by year.

If you really feel like reading them all, there are about 1000 posts per year (2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005). There may also be more years of threads since this message was written. Have a look around. Otherwise, just post in the most recent version of this thread. It should be near the top of the Tricks section. It almost always is.


Original message follows:

Better 3D unfeed the sun, ive done a few fts 2-3-2-3. Ive been trying 2-2-2-3-2-3 (i think thats right.... maybe its 42*-42*-42*-3*-42*-3*?), but i havnt had much luck with that. I get 2-2-2-3-dead. Also beated suns, 2-3-3 and a very close 2-3-3-3

Ive been planning on making a proper diabolo video since i hit 1 year of diabolo in October, but due to bad weather ive only been able to make crappy 3D progress videos. Some of the tricks arent as smooth as i would like them, but again thats due to awful string and awful weather. For those of you who dont no i call my diabolos bees as they are yellow with black hubs, thus the pun ;) The clips where i am using crystal suns are old rejected collab clips =] Enjoy!

EDIT: I forgot to say thank you to Mop for catching the sprinkler pass for me.

A very messy Feed the sun 2-3. I had been trying sun for a while and it wasnt working, so i tried feed the sun for a laugh and it somehow worked. Since then ive landed it many times.
