On the other hand, this is a Diabolo community, and it isnt one of diabolo elitists who dont want anyone to progress, just everyone has to be better than everyone else.

im pretty shure the first time you learnt the magic knot you were pretty stoked, i know i was.

we should, like we do with everyone, encourage these videos, because at least they have the balls to post up a video that they are in, i mean i know they are no MFP, but isnt it good to see people using the diabolo, and having fun with it- whereas some people play with it for 30secs and throw it in the closet, never to be seen again.

i wish you wouldnt swear on here either,   and putting a  *   to replace one of the letters doesnt make it any less offencive.

you say you have been a member of this forum for a long time, yet you have only made 2 posts whereas stevey has made 13 and has only been a member since october last year and he has submitted a Video.  he is an active member of this online community and we support him and his diabolo.

maybe you should try talking to some of us, and asking questions instead of not posting and complain about people having fun with diabolo even if its not the greatest ever.

I agree with you 100%!! benjamin was very rude to say thing like that!!

P.S. Nice video Stevey keep up the good work!!!

You should probably put a disclaimer that it's not really a serious tutorial....I was let down because I thought someone actually found a nice and easier way to clean.  However, once I knew it was a joke, I got a chuckle out of it.  Yeah you want the vid to be smaller too.

I just put a disclaimer on it sorry I didn't make that clear in the first place

Performances / Cirque Du Soliel Diabolo Act

Quote from: Colin

There are also two acts in other shows (La Nouba and Quidam), you could say are, 'cloned', but there are some minor differences.  Either way, there are always three Chinese girls

I thought there where four Chinese girls in La Nouba. I have never been to La Nouba but My frend went to it and said there where four Chinese girls.
