Yeh, I guess I wouldn't be too worried about times with no income, I've got a friend who used to build computers for his friends and their friends etc. He was happy, but he wanted to move on and get a higher income. He got a job in a computer building company and he seems very stressed and doesn't have time for much.

Hey, nice video! There's some simple tricks there that inspired me!
Plus, it gave me an idea for a crazy trick:

Infinite suicide with 2 diabolos! Put it in a sprinkler, do a suicide out and wrap it again before it comes out of the sprinkler. And obviousely repeat.
Do any of you think it's at all possible becuase its way beyond my ability!

Hey all!
I've just come back from bluewater and I had a great time, I just practiced and performed around "Airborne Kites", a shop that sells juggling stuff, and the director saw me and offered me a job! Wehey! But not until I'm 16 (June)  :(   When I'm 18, I want to do a degree in circus skills up in London. And maybe see what turns up. My dream job would be to teach juggling (in all its' forms).

Do any you diabolo/juggle for a living? Is it feasible?

Diabolos were a rage? I'd never seen anyone diabolo, even the guys at the shop didn't know how to do it. I don't really know why I bought one! That kid is great! I wish I had started young  :(   Now what I can do seems so rubbish! Not gonna give up though!

I didnt know there were so many ways of getting into sprinkler!

Hmm, what I really want is a few simple 2 diabolo tricks slowed down and explained (arm stalls, vortexes, magic knots etc)

If you could do that, it would be great!


P.S. Is excalibur hard? I can nearly get it horizontal and spinning

Yeh, I guess you're right. Has anyone here come up with an original way of speeding their diabolo up?

I always use wrapped orbits, but I have heard that chinese acceleration is better, should I try and learn it, or keep with what I am happy with?

Which way do you lot use?

Does anybody know the price of the new finesse diabolo? Or when it's coming out? Or where I can get it from (UK)?

I use Henry's jazz diabolos, but I find that when I'm doing a 2 diabolo shuffle, they get out of line really quickly. So I'm constantly having to correct them even though they are spinning quite fast.

Also, when I use the wrap start, I have to point the wrapped diabolo inwards because it naturally turns outwards when it's in the wrap.

I have tried other diabolos and they seem to stay straight better.

Is there a way to fix my diabolos (if there is anything wrong!).
If not, then any reccomendations on a couple of new ones?

Thanks you guys

I spent abosultely aaaaages working on a 2 diabolo throw in, I was so frustrated! After about 2 months, I tried a wrap start and it worked first time! So try out different ways of starting.

Hey everyone, first post for me.
I learnt 2 diabolos about a month ago, but I've been learning tricks very slowly. I need some help!

I can just about do sprinkler, speedwarps, sidesun (not very well)and 1 up.

I want to learn trapeze stalls, but I'm just not getting anywhere with them, any tips? And any other tricks you reccomend?
