Nice video. With some of the best locations I've ever seen in a diabolo video. Not necessarily a breakthrough in tricks but definitely one of the great videos of the summer. Btw did you have any drops where the diabolo fell all the way down one of the cliffs?

A very nice and different location to the typically urban environments we usually see in other videos - I love horizons that don't end. I, however, can't imagine diaboloing next to an interstate highway without being a little nervous of the traffic. Glad you had things so that the diabs would bounce AWAY from cars ;)

Pretty good, and different, video in my final opinion. Keep it up.

Edit - I didn't notice up until now, but it's cute how all the cars are going backwards in your little highway scene.

Very good, nice use of the desert landscape around you which is very sparse yet still interesting.  Stick releases aplenty too. 

Well done sir, that was a pleasant viewing.

Yeah that is a really nice video, the locations were superb and the music went with the video very well in my opinion. Some of the stick catches could've been a bit cleaner but everything else was really well done!

Well I didn't really like it much. The locations were great, but I didn't like your style- Not very smooth and quite messy.

Thanks for all the comments!

Btw did you have any drops where the diabolo fell all the way down one of the cliffs?
on that one cliff I was going to do some thing better then just the vortex but after dropping them twice and taking 10 mins to climb down then back up the cliff I thought the vortex would do. ;D

I, however, can't imagine diaboloing next to an interstate highway without being a little nervous of the traffic. Glad you had things so that the diabs would bounce AWAY from cars

Edit - I didn't notice up until now, but it's cute how all the cars are going backwards in your little highway scene.
The cars are also going 3.5 faster then in real life so diaboloing there was not scary as it looks.

I really enjoyed that. The music was perfect, and the locations were stunning. And diabolo in dangerous places is great fun too. I liked the way the blue skies contrasted with the dominating sandy landscape.

Working on your tan and diaboloing at the same time; quite a good deal (and video) in my opinion!

didnt particularly like the diabolo. there were some good tricks but would be better if there were longer combos and less acceleration. Landscapes were awesome. I like ur bowler hat (is that how u spell it? I dunno)
