1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
Bin diabin fer about 1.2 years now

2. What or who got you started?
About May time last year my mum brought sum cheap diabs for our holiday, got kinda hooked, bought sum proper ones, can't put em down, end of

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
No idea, sumtimes I wish I weren't hooked on it cuz I need to get work done, I don't like puttin it down tho

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
depends wot else I need to do, i.e. sleep, eat, go to college maybe.  But if theres a trick I'm desperate to learn up to about 3 hours a day, if theres not much I'm that keen on maybe 30mins-an hour and a half

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
I have twice, once in a school xmas show when I was rubbish (but better then anyone everybody there had seen), and once at the Hat Fair in winchester when I just got the fan, and ever since then I've been qouted by my mate Dave with "I'm so glad I managed to pull off that fan"  :roll:

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
I juggle balls a bit, workin on 4, nuthin much, wanna try and learn unicycle

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
I use henrys Circus, wanna get the tuning sets for em now, shortish carbon fibre sticks and normal hardware string, thinkin i mite try the henrys stuff

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
2, just love the feel of it and the fact that it impresses "normal" peeps easily...wud luv to do 3

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
I just love my classic "Sun between your mums legs" when done on the beach, its not my own trick just a short combo I like, I'll try and video it

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
I rlly like the whip catch between the legs followed by a duicide between the legs, really need to learn that

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
tryin to see if I can stabalise an s-fan above my head or on my back

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
The one diaboloist who really inspired me was JiBe, his videos really got me into it properly, learnin the harder stuff, then pretty much anyone hu can do 2 really well, barnsey and sean are the two names that come to mind, anyone with a decent montage video I luv lol
