1. How many years have you diaboloed for? I first picked up a diabolo yesterday.

2. What or who got you started? One of the first times I ever talked to my boyfriend (otherwise known as the "crazy guy with sticks" at schools on the days he had his there) he had a diabolo. I've loved it ever since and have wanted to learn.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general? Not sure yet, I'm just in the begining processes of learning.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
Unfortunently, I haven't really been able to yet as I don't have one of my one at the moment.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
Nope.

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ? I've tried to juggle balls before, but it didn't go so well.

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
I've only ever used one diabolo, a set of sticks and string.

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
1 for now...I've never tried more.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
The fact it didn't take me over an hour like everyone else to get one spinning.

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done? I haven't seen many yet.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
Everything past getting it to spin.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you? I suppose my boyfriend at the moment, but I imagine this will get better as I get more experienced in things.

Hey...
My name is Roland (as my sn implies)
I live in Tallahassee, Florida...
age 16 (17 in like 6 days)
ummm...don't really have a website, but I have a blog...sorta boring though...

I have diaboloed (?) for about 2 years sparingly, with Chinese yoyos and cotton string, so you can imagine why it never took off...I recently got some Yoho's and fiberglass sticks and the such, so now I am addicted...
Uhhh...don't really know what started it...
Don't juggle other stuff...play for an hour or two or three every day if possible...
performances are not really on the schedule yet...did some stuff for my Chinese school, but that was it...
Actually I do know what got me hooked...There's this guy at FSU (the college in Tallahassee) who came from Taiwan... apparently he's like number two or something, and he's pretty amazing... Our Chinese school got him to teach us.
My favorite trick that I can do would probably be some arm combinations...overall would be s-fans

Right now I am working on arm tricks and I am starting two diabolo stuff.  Still perfecting corrections, doing fans, etc...
Infinite suicides are definitely driving me crazy.

btw is there a thread about entering s-fans?
I have searched and couldn't find one...

Roland, theres a few s fan threads and a sweet s fan exits tutorial as well, check the tricks sticky http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=149.0
I dont think theres a dedicated sfan entry thread, start one in the tricks section  (watch out for the mods ;) )

I think it used to bw a given that if you have reached s fan level you will know how to enter :)

BTW any info or vids on this diaboloist you write about?

two things, when you learn a new trick that feeling you get is immense, also when you can do a trick really well and really smoothly, it feels great two.
