Between the legs sun is one of my favorites. When I was learning it I kept smacking myself, but now it's a very slick trick.
Haha I really know how you feel! I had the same with a sun behind the back between the legs... If it goes wrong that way it could be painful. I still have a scar on my belly from my first practise session this summer :(

The first time I did an inf. suicide was also great! I thought I would never learn a trick like that, but then suddenly I got it! Just like minigenosides - feels great.

But if I had to choose, I would choose the rubberarm to monorail combo! Especialy the moment when the first tricks goes into the second trick feels great.

Thanks Martijn!!!

Great to hear the tutorial has been helpful :) Glad I could help.

And as i created that tomicide genocide trick which martijn put in the TOTW too.

Yeah, that's nice. I'm now working on the double version of that (Eric's integral to wrapped mini g I believe). I'm having trouble with the stick unwrapping the wrong way though... Try it!

Yes it's the same trick which Eric does.The only different is that he starts with a "backside thing".I did the double version in my freestyle video at 5:20 too.It looks very similar to the normal one and the quality is bad.Perhaps that's why some people didn't see it.

Yeah, that's his very stylish entry to the minisuicide, integral stays the same though :D

And I did notice the trick in your video, it's just that it's been a while since I've seen the video, and I only recently started messing around with the double variation :)

of course i am most proud of tricks that i have invented by myself - and those are great moments when i see somebody ELSE do something that i think is my stuff (even and maybe even more if one does it better than me)..

but then, i realise there is maybe people out there who have invented stuff like fan, sprinkler and genocide.. that is something very else.. do you Guy know which people are originally behind those tricks.. or is that kind of basic stuff allways 100+ years old and nobody knows who has made it first time?

Kapis, I think there was no definite inventor of those types of tricks, but many people would of probably once thought of it. Take vertax for example, I think alot of people would of once thought of getting the diabolo going vertical.

Fan, I believe Ryo yabe claims that.
Sprinkler, Dave P
Genocide, Robert Biegler (Matt H reckons the stuff he did back 10 years ago would be up and above a lot of the suicide stuff people do these days).

Anyhow, back on topic. like Mattias I was really happy when i got double sprinkler duicide, looking back i think tricks that stood out for me were, in no particular order, full genocide, 2d shuffle, continuous backwraps, sfan exit, 2d fig 8 sun, mini coloumns, wrapped ping pong and of course 3rd base concept.

Was Ryo the guy on diarhythm.com doing the fan ?
I learned this trick 6 or 7 years ago from this bloody GIF (unfortunately, that was the one video of a fan available)

integral suicide to infinite suicides.  I have some other cooler tricks w/ two diabolos, but I like doing it a lot (probably cuz it took forever to learn).
There are 11 types of people in the world.  Those who can count in binary and those who can't.

I still think mini-g and infinite suicides are my greatest achievement  ;)
Not sure how many times my diabolos have been in the pond

Aaah, the nostalgia!  Just reading Sean's post, chatting about Dave P and Robert doing their thing.....

Got me so misty eyed, I dug out my old dusty copy of the Manchester convention video (that's BJC number 7 for all you newbies out there, 1994!)  Was fun to watch all those Renegades flying around, Dave P doing 2-in-one-hand to finger curl back to 2-in-one-hand, a brief bit of Robert doing some of his great combos, and of course me and Guy looking impossibly young....

Anyway, back on topic, can't honestly say I'm "proud" of any particular trick, but continuous 2 diabolo suicides still puts a smile on my face.  Something about the way that all that stuff is flying around and around without spraying  all over the place is still strangely hypnotic, even after all these years.

Cheers,
Donald

The double frontwrap sprinkler suicide pass with two diabolos and/or back to back 2 diabolo excalibur passing, both of which I think are very hard technically but extremely visually pleasing to both lay audiences and to diabolo savvy ones.

WHip catch genocide...
i remember this happened almost by accident, i sucessfully completed a whip catch went to throw a sun to the right, dropped one of the sticks and ended swinging it full circle while the daibolo was still rising. Well, well, well, this is very interesting, i thought, it took me ages to learn, but i eventually got it, and named it the 'Selective translocated Herbicide'
Oh if anyone ever invents any new suicides, the world of golf course greenkeeping has many names...
Fungicide, herbicide, pesticide, vermicide rodentcide...
I also came across this word the other day
'infanticide' so if anyone can come up with a dark enough trick?
Or we could just rename mini genocides, cause infants, like those tricks are smaller..
Fire Walk With Me...

A VERY fast and a bit lower Vertax Genocide would do it...
