1. How many years have you diaboloed for? 0 years, 3 days.

2. What or who got you started? A friend of a friend. He has unbelievable skill.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general? I just love being baffled and thinking of all the different ways the strings cross and dont tangle, baffles me.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average? As much as I can. When Im not doing anything else.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
Simple tricks to friends and family.

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ? Not really. I can almost juggle 3 balls.

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string? ermmm.. I brought some from firetoys.com and they are doing me fine at the moment. Unsure of makes and names at the moment.

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best? I'd love to be able to do 2.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
I don't know the name of it, but it's a kind of reverse trapeze, and then flicked off to be caught again. It's simple and flows smoothly (Usually!)

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
I dont know the name of it, but its where the diabolo comes off the string with hangtime and the stick is spun around the hand and back underneath the diabolo to bve caught above. Its quite mind blowing.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
The one above. Its too advanced for me, but Im determined to get it. (And not far off it.)

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you? Just those who have made video's on this forum, they are very impressive.

I feel Im quite advanced for someone who has only been doing it for 3 days, and Im not the sort to give up. i want someone else who is fairly new to discuss things with or a mentor effectively would be nice :).

http://shawnfumo.blogspot.com/

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?

A bunch, but it has been an on and off thing. My main hobby will probably always be yo-yos, but I really like diabolos too. We'll see how far I get this time, now that I'm actually on a board with other people. :)

2. What or who got you started?

Who knows at this point...

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?

I like object manipulation and skill toys in general. Just something that I really enjoy and seem to be decent at.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?

Been doing 1-2 a day now that I've just gotten back into things.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?

Not yet.. not a big performing person..

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

Yo-yos (mainly 1A and 2A with some 3A, 4A, and 5A knowledge). Jitter Rings (the forgotten skill toy!). Balls (working on 5). Basic 3 clubs. Poi. A tiny bit of baton/staff. A tiny bit of footbag. Learning some kendama.. need to give a better shot at contact juggling one of these days. Worked a little on bounce juggling, but I need to try it again. I have a bit of an interest in string figures, which is related to some yo-yo and diabolo. Very basic three rings and very basic devil stick. Basically I'm interested in almost everything..haha

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?

Basically I'm still using Henry Circus with the two-piece wood sticks. I also have two Renegades that I got some years ago for 2d, though I haven't really used them yet. Also using the basic white Henry string. I'll have to give new sticks and string a shot at some point...

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?

I like 1d since that's what I can do, but hopefully I'll be good enough to do actual tricks in 2d soon. I'll probably hold off on 3d for a long time since I think I'd be more into complex tricks instead of throw juggling style stuff. I'll probably stick with 5 balls as my "numbers" effort..

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?

Not really sure yet. Infinite suicide and 2d shuffle are fun since I just learned them. There's a combo that I do that I really like (I think it involves slowicides.. I need to get back up to speed on names of stuff).

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?

In terms of pure difficulty, I guess some of the 3d stuff, but I think I'm most interested in the genocide type combos that I see diabolumberto doing in his latest vid.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?

Need to learn to correct 2d shuffle. Need to get better at catching the stick in infinite suicide. But most of my really frustrating stuff I'm actually making major progress on, so I'm pretty happy right now. :)

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?

Just about everyone right now! ;)

This is one of the nicer boards I've seen for any topic, so I'm glad to be a member!

1. i started with 12 .make holiday and there was a workshop.
    with 24 i started with 2 diabolo.now i am 25 and would like to learn 3 diabolos . i am juggling too clubs balls .5 clubs nearly a minute 7 balls i try now .at the moment i work out with 5 balls , mills mess ,fullshower,over head and pirouette . with 2 diabolos i can do around 20 tricks but i don t know all the names of the tricks called here but sprinkler i know :-) i can do it double and let the stick fly , but i still have the problem to let the one sprinkler run ??for longer .

the most i like at juggling is to feel free if you juggle the conzentration let you forget some problems  and i like the feeling if i get a new trickat the first time !

i train often but not every day sometimes 1hour minimum ,but normally over 2 hours if i train . i use carbon sticks henrys rope and henrys diabolos with ultralight kit ,sometimes i use alu but they are roof for the head :-)
i work mostly with 2 diabolos trying to get all of tricks into a solid routine
best trick i think i can stay is the double sprinkler .
player i like the mad french posse i don t see much but that was all hard stuff good well done .


greats marc
