Sounds like Jester Games visited your middle school. I just started teaching with this program too. If you're in the SF Bay Area let me know!

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?

2. What or who got you started?
Saw this on TV (was a different music, but the tricks were the same), thought it was cool and bought 2 diabolos the next day:

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
That feeling when you finally learn a new trick or when you create something new.
I also love the sharing and learning during conventions.

Half an hour max.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
I did once.

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
A bit of cigar boxes, but I'm not very good at it. Maybe because I use them more as a tripod for my camera than as juggling props  :embarassed:

JuggleDream Typhoon
DEOS carbon fibre
Henry's white

WELCOME BACK, CLO!!!

You can't imagine how many times I have told people about your 2D full genocide, and how much time it took me to find you video all these times.

I see you uploaded Sagnat to youtube, here the original in j.tv. Exactly 10 years of difference (error +- 16 days)

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
How happy it makes small children. They love it.


Oh, mate. That's so sweet

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?

Beginner here. Started learning in December 2020, so I'm very new to it all. Haven't done much since January, so am looking to get back into it.

2. What or who got you started?

Curiosity, interest in flow arts, and a desire to improve at something through practice. First discovered the diabolo when I was in China; been wanting to learn it since then!

Hello !
Name: Jack
Location: USA, Minneapolis
Age: 29
Website: https://viplikes.net/

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
13, although only really started about 6 months ago.

2. What or who got you started?
Was given one ages ago and just started playing.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
I mainly do diabolo and 3 ball/club juggling, but I find diabolo the most versatile - its movements seem to sometimes turn into devil sticks, poi, conventional juggling... seems nearly endless!

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
So far, I just have 2 blue MB Galaxies (and a really old yoho small one) with the sticks and string that came with the yoho (13 years still holding fairly well... it may be telling of how much I've used it over the years). The Galaxies are the only 'known' ones I have and know (and even then, they seem unknown), so I have nothing else to judge by. I recently made my own wooden sticks and used 2mm blinds string from the hardware store, and after a few tests, seems to be more effective than the string I've used in the past, they're now my main sticks.

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
I'm developing my skills with 1, learning to start and correct 2... 3 is a long way off!

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
Just learnt how to genocide!

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
Currently learning the tomicide, with many bruises.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
All the people and posts here on diabolo.ca!
