ha, shame on me! i knew only the standard names :) but it seems to me like surnames within the scene... there is no alternative for genocide! well, i call them genos or minigens bot not to be less offending, just lazyness 8)

fun to read that listing of unpleasant names and theis stories behind :)

bloody good fun... yes indeed!
seems like the names fit well, haha!

i 90% agree with you Arjan but i cant think of a offending trickname in skateboarding...

i also can imagine that conservative parents may be shocked if their kid tells them, it wants to learn how to do a genocide, lol! kids of younger age probably dont know about the real meaning of this... and the words are too hard to be misunderstood, so why give a f*** ;)

i think in times like this, only hypersensitive people can be offended of that :)
if someone with a brown jacket and a small moustache pulls of a genocide, then...

that was absolutely beautiful. was the second diabolo starting from rest? i first thought he was holding a mad long UFO grind or something...
i would not bet but i believe the second one was on spin when he gave it to her... the diabs have enlenghted axles so they can spin like a spinning top or a one sided diab!

Diabolo88, try getting one on a good spin, do the unwrap and keep on turning to the left to "emulate"gravity, take the second, wrap it in and do a hover wrapstart, that works pretty well!
i stopped to train it because the continous turning around makes me dizzy!

oh, martijns Lightpics for example are in an album within the fire and lights section but have no possibility to vote or comment...
and i got a comment on a pic i made and wanted to respond but there is also no add new comment button for my own pics.

i would like to have the comment an vote option for the whole gallery, if there is nothing to be said against it :)

haha, the one who(probably Flo) is saying "Alter" was 100%right! ;)
ALTER!!! or OIDA!!!(vienna style)

very nice entry!
i know they are not the first to try vertax 2dshuffle, but its the first vid i've seen with a vertax shuffle that lasts that long and that nice!!! i tried it my own once and it worked out very similiar but i found it hard to turn fast enough to keep it going for longer than just a few otts(can i say otts in vertax? i doubt it :)) so i stopped trying :(

loving the spinning top idea!

big thanks for all your encouraging words! :)

i had the idea of making a set:

Set of
GoldEditions
(incl.Batts&String +free engraving +1 extra set of replacement batts)
together with the new
Diamond Handsticks(click for infos)
for straight 70,-€ with free shipping worldwide!!!

edit: i also reduced the price for 1set of replacement batts(6xAG3) to 3,-€ (you still may find them cheaper on the web though)!

keep up the nice comments ;D

i think this start is much easier:
when you swing back a left trapez, let the diabolo go round your body(clockwise from above), while you move the left hand over your head to btb.... when the diab is about to finish the round(it is now to your left) let go the right handstick, thats it! the entry is pretty easy - explaining it is not(at least for me with my crappy english)! hope you can imagine what im trying to describe :)

however, i have a question: for me only some pics have the possibility to vote, am i alone with this problem or is it intended for some reason? there are some nice ones in there and i would like to give them the 5stars they deserve :)

no, they are the softest to string of all handsticks i tried, i usually play the yellow henrys till its black(really black and unplayable - so rough you can almost do a stringclimb on open string). well, thats wat i meant they have supersmooth sticktips ;)

oh and thewu, the holes are exactly 2,3mm for the string and 4,5 for the knots if you want i can make a bigger drilling, but i wouldn't go for a wider drilling than 3mm(oh and with such a big string it could be hard to get the knot into the hole)how fat is your string actually?
