Fan (while lying down)

Yeah I have entered this for VOTW because I was very please with myself for landing this! It is also going to be part of my next video which I am filming sometime this week (as I am now on my holidays). I hope you enjoy:

The fan is very common.

Now that you have posted it seperately it probably won't become a VotW.
It wouldn't anyway, as you have seen this in many videos and so it is not original or creative. It is an achievement though, well done.

I've been doing this trick for a while...
Right now I'm trying to learn from going from a lying down fan to a backwards somersault fan.

I posted this after I had the email back saying it wouldn't become a VOTW because it was too common.

Well... the title may suggest that it is the lying down fan. I know the fan is common as I spend most of my time watching diabolo movies hehe.

good job. only one suggestion, why don't you try using s-fan instead so that you won't lose speed and end up having to worry about the left diabolo dieing. haha

Fan whilst laying down is a tired trick and should blatantly not be entered for a trick of the week.

Sorry if you think I'm being harsh but its true.

And I wouldn't say the fan is a common trick, the fan done BADLY is a common trick, but the fan done well is a whole different ball game.

Sorry, its just not that impressive anymore, Nev and I have being doing fans laying down with swings for a hell of a long time, and 'Fan Boy' John Gherkin has been doing them for longer, he's the reason I learnt fans.

And as for the attempt at a backwards somersault fan, good ****ing luck. Forward roll fans are hard enough and I've never truly landed a front somersault fan, never tried it backwards but the only way I can see it as being possible is with a c-fan as the momentum is in the right direction at least.

GT

P.s

Also if you haven't noticed its in the first collab video and by the way I posted this before watching it.Now I've watched it, I do not believe it can be counted as the trick for the lack of rotations and you were on your back for what 3 seconds not even that.

Congrats for landing it though,but keep trying to get more rotations and more time on your back.This can be achieved by slowing your fan down for a start.
Out of focus lovin', Mark_BMC you legend!

I'm sure I have only seen it on one video though! That is why I entered it! Sorry!
No I don't think you are being harsh, you are giving positive feedback and I welcome that! haha

Remember your advice. Locations, video quality, don't over quality, no long credits etc.
