I can do a messy one, i havn't qualified for it yet tho
Ethan deleted his post which read the above.
I changed my post because you changed yours but ethan, you can not do a 360 fan. A messy one is still one, and you can't do a messy one, and, you don't qualify for a trick, you qualify after or before a trick, ONE day ago, you couldn't do a regular fan, and unless you learned in One day to do an ac fan, instead of an s-fan, with one diabolo twisted, and then learned to do a 360 fan in your remaining time, you can't do one, and you can only do a 180 with bearing, with one diabolo in a double twist, and the other, darkside in a single twist. If you can, you should be able to get it frequently, or close to, you don't get many flukes with tricks like that, you have or you don't. After I nailed a 360, I could do it on every try because I practiced so much to land it.

I have only done the 360 spin once, but i can not complete the trick, the diabolos have no spin at the end.

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
10 now.

2. What or who got you started?
Well, 10 years ago me and my family were camping on some island were diabolo was a big rage that year. My mother got inspired and bought one too, and I played with it aswell. (I guess you could have hardly called it diaboling when some 5 years old boy plays with one but ok this was the start.) We came there every summer 4 years long, and I allways played with it. When I got 11 or 12 I got a henry's circus myself, and I kept playing the diabolo every summer.
Now this year (thats already half a year ago) I started on searching on the internet for more tricks (I was able to do all tricks I knew.) Soon I found alot of information, more tricks I could all easily learn because of my 10 years diabolo experience etc. etc.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
Exchanging tricks and tips

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
well it was a hour a day for a while, now its atleast once or twice a week, but I do more juggling and devilsticking and rebound juggling and other things now.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
nope

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
Balls, devil stick, bouncing balls

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
I like henrys circus above the finesse, allu's en henry's string are great too. But maybe it changes soon, I hope I get my sundia fly delivered this week

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
Well I would really like to learn more with 2 diabolo's, but even most suns are too hard now. so I guess that will be 1 diabolo.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
I guess thats the genocide..

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
I don't know. I have only once been to a jugle convention, and for the rest I have not met any other good diaboloers.. I dont know what the most amazing trick was.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
I really working on improving my genocide (still working on stopovers, started only last week with practicing this.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?[/url]
None special, but I remember some vid of some guy who did not use handsticks but only string, I really want to try that someday, and I have the diabology dvd here, witch is a very inspirating dvd.

Hey Jimmy, welcome. Good to see another Aussie. :) You all seem to be in NSW..
Just a bit of advice. Don't bother with Yoho fibreglass. They're yuck and chew through your string pretty quick. Try and get some Henrys Aluminium, Henrys (short) Carbons or Mr. Babache Xtremes

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
About 3 years

2. What or who got you started?
As a child somebody showed me some diabolo tricks at a festival and I learnt how to throw and catch, but not much else. Years later I came back from university one summer and a friend and I found the diabolos in an old sack and began to play with them. We looked for some more tricks on the internet and amongst other things saw the previews of diabology. Later I bought a copy and a Henrys Circus and joined the university juggling club
 
3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
Shiny props, progression, creativity, beautiful tricks and nice people

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
About 2-4 hours a week

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
Nope, maybe one day

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
A bit of bounce juggling, some contact and some basic ball and club stuff

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
I mainly use my Henrys Circus with Henrys aluminum or homemade sticks and henrys string

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
All of the above for different reasons

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
At the moment probably 3 low to 3 high, or a 42 with a sun but it’s usually a new trick I’ve just learnt or an old one I’ve just re-learnt. A lot of passing and stealing stuff is really fun too.

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
On videos, on stage or at clubs and conventions I’ve seen so many amazing tricks that it’s difficult to choose one. Most of the stuff nev does is pretty amazing and more recently the ‘funtycopter’ made me laugh.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
3 high and clean exits to 3d suns

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
Diabology, lots of people on this forum, Nev and Séan from my juggling club and lots of the jugglers and diabolists I have met at conventions

Y'see, this is the attitude that gets the negative comments on your videos. FILM THE COOL STUFF. We'll take your word that you've learnt stuff, though there may be special requests (thanks for filming the quintiple whip :o).

Hey Everyone!

Just a little bit about my person: First of all I am from Austria and 19 years old. I'm playing Diabolo for not too long (over a year now) but I'm training hard. I juggle all kind of stuff - espacially clubs. I'm playing the drums, guitar and the piano. I also try to write my own songs. There is nothing left to say.

If you want to see me in action.
This is my first video, so pls be kind.

Nice video Scrat. At least you took the time to make something quality.
Its well done but the slow motion at the start got really annoying, and I just didn't like the first song. The second was better.
Your progress is good for a year - keep at it.
