What trick are you most proud of?
« on: November 03, 2006, 01:43:03 PM »
I appreciate some of you will have a few under your belt but what trick really made you think 'after all the effort, it feels so good to finally pull it'.

For me it has to be the double anti-suicide which I've pulled only twice since yesterday. After about 6 months of going back to it every now and then I finally managed to land it with the vortex out. It was chuffing brilliant, felt like how Tony Hawk would have when he pulled the 900 for the first time (I can appreciate the diabolo skill isnt up there with some of you guys though ;)  It's also the feeling of knowing how much practice on other tricks/techniques went into making that trick, such as the vortex and simply catching the handstick.

The one-handed round the leg was another proud moment as it was the first trick I thought would actually impress people therefore giving me the motivation to carry on learning.

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.

Infinite Suicide. It´s been my dream from Day 1. I finally nailed it this summer.  :D

I also like my J and C-whips.  :-*

Ever since I saw Antonin do a 1d lifting mini-genocide on Diabology, it became one of the reasons I wanted to get better at diabolo. It's my favorite trick that I can do (right now).

Otherwise, a slowicide to stick kick to infinite suicide is my second favorite.

One of them has to be the excalibur genocide. I had been trying and trying it every once in a while for like 1.5 years! Then, it finally clicked, learned variations, and made a tutorial :D

There are probably some others, but that's the one that I thought of first.

lol fredo! :P

I think mine changes every time I learn or make something new. So I guess lately it would be my new version of my Berkeley performance combo...or my vortex combo, long vortex-->anti-suicide-->long vortex-->short vortex to short vortex-->arm stall.

But the next time something comes up it will definitely change...

PS. look for those two things in the next video ;)

42* because it was my dream trick since I started doing 2 diabolos.  I finally got it once and I was excited for the next few days.

The 2 diabolo shuffle.  Was such a nice feeling when I finally got it going.  Well, probably just being able to get it spinning really fast was a nice feeling.  Perhaps infinite suicides is up there somewhere.

Vertax genocide and 3D are still being worked on, for bloody ages.

I'm not really proud of any of my tricks as i dont think any are original or very hard.
But My happiest time learning a trick was probably when i first started and learnt elevator. It was so kool! lol

I think the best trick i have learnt is a tomicide. Also i just love throwing two diabolos up, but it is the only trick i can do on 2

hmm. hard choice. I'm going to have to say vertax genocide, as its the trick ive spent the longest amount of time on.

Out of all the tricks I've ever learnt, pulling off a vertax genocide for the first time was the most satisfying.

I do have to thank Martijn for his tutorial, it's the final left hand unwrap that sorted it.

I'm a lucky guy!!!I've never practiced vertex genocides but after watching martijns tutorial and 3 days of practice i got it.And it felt very good because before I sought i will never get it.
Thanks Martijn!!!
And my first 3 diabolo shuffle and infinite unwrapped suicide 360 made me proud to.And as i created that tomicide genocide trick which martijn put in the TOTW too.

2 diabolo between the legs sun. Everytime I do it there is something satifying about keeping my balls intact.
