I tried those slackwhips for ages but I just can't do them at all(they don't look very difficult.....).
So I went out and made a short video.

I hope you can help me because I want to be able to do those whips! ;)

well you need to do more of a swing and you need to do a j type motion with your hands, if you get me

were you even trying in that video???
didn't look like it...
if so then there are some vital points that you need to remember, don't move the left hand (the non dominant), pull up way more and come down quickly in a J shape. you have to guide the slack around the cup as well, this was a problem that i had when i was learning it, i could get the slack but most of the time it wouldn't go around the diabolo.

if you dont have success with the j-whip try a c-whip.

I've merged your thread, Dennis, with this one because this is the trick  you're tying to do. Have a look at the first post and see if that helps you.

Just watched your video and I'll give you a few short tips on the motion. The video makes it look like you're a lefty so I'll try and give the instructions from a leftys point of view.

It looked like you're trying to lift the diabolo with your right and then whip it with your left. For you, the motion will be nearly all left handed so forget about your right. Just lift the diabolo up gently with your left and then whip it around with your wrist. -The movement doesn't nearly need to be as fast as you'd imagine, the slower it is the more slack the whip will develop which means that it's easier to catch the diabolos axel with the loop that you create.

There is little else I can say that will help you, as it's one of those tricks that's about the 'feel' of it. Once you've done it a few times you'll be able to do it forever.

Hope this has been of use,

-Leo

yeah, if you're a righty, the left hand really does just about nothing. use the right hand and wrist to shape and direct the slack.

keep it smooth - as guppygould noted, a fast movement doesn't necessarily work.
