hey welcome to the forum and welcome to diaboloing, some good beginner tricks to try would be suns - half sun or full sun these scared me at first but after a few weeks youll get alot better and youll find this trick very easy. Trapeze's are a good beginner trick also, they are quite easy to get a hing of after a few days. orbits are also not to hard to learn and before long youll be doing over the leg orbits. a good website to check would be www.diabolotricks.com. good luck.

I would get him to show you because you always learn stuff easier if someone shows you it in person.

Orbit Thrusts, Chinese Whip Thrusts and Chinese Snaps are the techniques that most people use to accelerate the diabolo.

What i think you may be talking about is a string climb it can also be found on www.diabolotricks.com a tip for this one is to make sure the diabolo is going very fast and that the string is wraped aroung the diabolo then continue to make the diabolo spin faster, then lower your right hand while putting some tension between both the string and the diabolo and it should drift up the string this is a trick that took me a few days, hours to learn but once you get a hing of it its very good.

i had that probelm your letting the diabolo grab to much string keep your string tight after the whip.

It may also be because your string is old or isn't proper diabolo string.

The string will probably alright then, it's just practice to get the technique.

the string can definatly cous the problem your having but the string wouldnt be that old that it wouyld be causing that problem, it needs to be about 10 hours old before i find the string useless, but i defatly find having to change the string about every week or 10 hours. its a good idea to change the sting regularly as it helps for every trick.

Well I wouldn't say "for every trick" because it's just impossible to practice 2d wraps with a fresh string...

Hmm... but is it "fresh" anymore? If you put some soap, it will get stickier, and btw, does it shorten the strings lifespan?

Unless you rub soap on it.

or unless you unwrap instantly and start the shuffle.
