first get behind the back ricochets, as shown in some of JiBe's website's stuff. then, let the diabolo travel towards the middle a little, and lift up your leg before you pop it back to the other side. practice this on both soides and combine.

Try putting your weak leg into the orbit and pass from the back catching it forwards.

It worked for me

Get good with one diabolo around your left leg (assuming you're right handed).  Then plant both feet on the floor, and face to the side, so you're side on to the diabolo.  From there, you can start popping the diabolo around the other leg, aiming for the middle.  It takes a bit of effort, but is hopefully not tooo bad once you go through those steps.

1: Be able to bounce the diabolo from side to side with string behind back, when thats semi solid
2: Sit back a bit so the string is in contact with the back of your knees, starting with the right leg as you catch the diabolo lift you right leg up and slightly to the right, catch on left side
3: Let diab roll a small bit to the middle as step 2 but swap right leg for left
rinse lather repeat

on a side note i started working on diabolo treblas got about 8 rounds last night

We are not talking about the Figure 8 around both legs Barnesy, but about that crazy Eric combo where the string is behind his 2 legs, and he pops the diabolo through his legs from the left to the right and back. I can't explain how to do it.. for me it was watching the video a lot, and practise.

Yes, that one :)

I suggest you start with a magic knot under your left leg (with the string behind your back), and then start popping the diabolo from the right to the left, to the right, etc..

I thought it was a tie or twist that looked like it'd tangle the string but actually allowed it to be released freely.
If that's the case, my knowledge of diaboloing is worse than i suspected, I'd never have seen that as a worthwhile way of learning figure 8s  :?
