Must Find Guillable person with vidio camera to film me

But nice work dude

tips for not hurting yourself with your fire diabolo include:

Spend Some time getting a feel for the weight and movement of different trick sequences BEFORE u light it on fire preferably during the day when u can see properly

Keep it moving cos otherwise u are breathing fumes
whipping or suns are usually the best basic ways

wearing non flammeble clothing ( i know this sounds stupid but lots of people do fire juggling in things that will catch on fire or melt to their skin)
i recomend jeans and a short sleeved non baggy tshirt

bring a bucket filled with water and a towel to throw on flames
i"ve never had to use these (thank god) but then again i have had to leap on people who have set thier hair on fire with thier poi and pat it out with my hands

Don't think that just cos u can do a trick with ur normal diabolo consistently that u should even try it with ur Fire one(examples include oribits with extra wraps , guillatines , stalls that end up close to ur body)

if your drunk or high and think it"d be a great idea to get some fire kudos from ur mates, think again
Especially if ur REALLY high

and commen sense  :)

Diabolo more than any other prop i can think of makes the transition to fire really badly but even with all of the above said its intensely fun

And the best looking trick by far is the high throw  :P    (just make sure ur on grass)
do it, do it ,do it, DO IT!

it's a fyrefli fire diabolo...i like it a lot...im almost positive it's a ball bearing diabolo too...you can hear it when you the diabolo spinning really fast...

recently ive gotten a sick idea on how to do 2d shuffle with fire diabolos...

do a wrap start for 2d shuffle and right before u spin the diabolo to start it spinning have 2 of your friends light the ends and then spin the diabolo and unwrap into the shuffle...seems like it would work...now all i need is a 2nd fire diabolo...heh..oh and stopping the shuffle is still a mystery in my head heh...someone out there try it!

Wow, nice clip of a fire diabolo jake! I never actually saw one of those used before, and I was surprised that you did an under the leg with it. Hope to see more videos of you man, and i will hopefully see you at a next juggling festival in california.
Go Draco with your Diabolo!

well this particular diabolo is all metal...i think there are some that arent and they may have some sort of fire-resistant rubber around the cups for when u drop it..but im sure a rocket start could work...just youd need to be quick lighting them on fire..and if the start fails..picking them up would be a fun little challenge  ;P

The thread Martijn linked to is probably the most comprehensive list of starts fro 2 fire diabolos solo.  I favour the backwrap the right, other on open string, and push the left diabolo with the right stick to the left, and pull the right diabolo to the left and then pop it up.  You have to do a bit of running along with it though.

If the videos in the link doesn't work, the start I describe is also done by Dai in Feel Good Inc. near the start.
