Hey,

Is there something like 4d siteswap? Are there masters out there which practise 4d siteswap (in secret :P )?!! That would be cool 8)  :D 2d and 3d siteswap is common, and Tony does 4d high pretty steady... So maybe even 4d siteswap??

Sure there are! Would you expect anything less from the French?

Check out the MFP's siteswap list on http://www.artofdiabolo.com/ in the resource section. It's all explained in there. An excellent resource! I think I've heard JiBe say that his dream 4 diabolo trick is running the siteswap 534.

Some of us mere mortals would be happy just to run the siteswap 4. ;)

I sure believe it's possible... but are there any videos online?? I would love to see them! Because I never saw someone performing 4d siteswap I thought no one can do that (except ss:4) Does someone know if there are any videos online (or at your HD :wink: ) of 4d siteswap?

Yabe does a pirouette under that like it's no sweat... actually it's 6420.

I heard that Yabe did 6420 pirouette.
It was my dream until last month.
At the Bruxelles convention the place was perfect for high siteswaps (20 meters ceiling), after 3 attempts, I managed it, in front of Trash and many others diabolists.

Don't worry Sean, I'd very happy running 4 consistently for more than 16 catches (which is currently my record with self hand throws).
I would however need to work on it a bit more, did not do diabolo for a month now :-).

When you dream, you can always dream higher :-)
And I guess than if/when  I (or anybody) get 4 solid, some simple siteswaps are definitely possible. I think that 5551, 53 can be done once in a run without it being a lot more difficult than 4 itself.
While shooting Diabology, I had a very good run of 4 (with Baptiste throwing the 4th). I mean I never did better than a few throws and I had a very stable run of around 20 or more catches. I was so surprised I decided I had to try something and tried a 53. Needless to say you don't get it on your first attempt :-) But the nice collision that resulted can still be seen on the DVD (Priam was changing DV tapes and caught the very end of the run).

Cheers,
JiBe
