Finding a "wrapped orbits" acceleration tutorial

Yea. I can't do this amazing acceleration. So i ask for you, can you please make a tutorial about that thing? I mean "wrapped orbits" acceleration. I'm waiting for your answer!  :P

The name is generaly "orbit acceleration."
you can find it here: http://www.diabolotricks.com/Addspin.htm
they call it "orbit thrusts" (good site to learn tricks and some other accelerations)

Well, I think that's pretty straight forward one. Just basically you do orbits, throw diabolo from the other end to other and let it slide back. Practice that first and then you just add the wrap to diabolo and do exactly the same thing. Remember to keep your other hand slightly more forward than other (depending which wrap you use) so that it doesn't tangle.

The thing you need the most is just practice. ;)

A new piece of Henrys yellow string helps :)
Other than that pretty much what Arthur and Marko sugests.
Just keep at it, you should have it well before anyone sorts out a tutorial that will tell you more than the written steps.

Thanks guys. I'm going to practise a lot with this thing.
But if i do the orbits from right hand to left hand, do i need a right hand wrap, no left hand?
(And sorry my bad english, i'm just a young finnish boy.)

Wrap does not matter, that much. Just adjust your hands hands slightly (one a little bit more forward, one backward) so that the diabolo does not tangle in high speeds.  How to adjust and avoid tangling?

Please read this instruction (it's in Finnish): http://www.kumiankka.com/index.php?sivu=ongelmia-keriminen

Wish you all the luck while practicing.


ps. if you're not finnish and you need to understand what that webpage said, here's a link for the english version. http://www.rubberduck.fi/index.php?sivu=problem-tangle  In this case i just provided the help in native language.
