Hello everyone! I'm really surprised to find such an active diabolo forum! Okay, here's my list:

Name: Melanie
Location: Virginia
Age: 19
Website:

1. How many years have you diaboloed for? It's been about a year and a half since I started I think, but for quite a while I never practiced. I recently got back in it.

2. What or who got you started?
I bought the cirque du soleil diabolo after seeing Varekai with my mom. I was shocked to learn that average people like me could actually do tricks with a diabolo!

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
I'm actually able to do it! It's like my hidden talent (not that I'm even remotely good). Not a lot of people have actually seen or tried the diabolo, so it's fun to teach other people and entertain them with my simple tricks.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
about 1 hour

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
At a LARP, I do, but not professionally.

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

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
Unfortunately I haven't tried enough of the varying kinds to say. I have two sets of handsticks though , painted wooden ones and some nicer wooden ones I bought from a juggling site, but I switch between the two often. I don't have a preference. The sticks I bought from the store are troublesome in that I have a harder time doing suicides though...

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
Just one for me, for now.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
Hmmm...I'd like to say it's whatever new trick I just recently pulled off. What a rush!
For a real answer...I suppose I like the climb the string trick. UBER simple, yet it's the one that makes people go "Ooooh! Aaaaah!" I also like the Chinese suicide and cat's cradle tricks.

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

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
I can't for the life of me correct a diabolo's direction, so I end up having to move. If I ever go up on stage, my act will likely end with me having turned a complete 180 from the audience.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
I guess I have to say that my main inspiration has been the Chinese girls from Cirque du Soleil. Any diabolo video so far I've seen has amazed and inspired me though.

Ofek Shilton is quite young too, he's only 10 and can do both 3 high and low.  Niels from Belgium was the one that did the 3d armstall, not riku.
