A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:I've stuck a few more tutorials on my site. Couple of new things but nothing im amazingly pleased with. The beetle is on there, oh and something ive called a propellor prayer matrix horizontal conveyor (its a bit sketchy but you'll get the idea). Shite name but i wasnt feeling very original and it sorta fits the move.

I did film me attempting a vertical substitution matrix but i never quite got it so its not going online yet, maybe in a couple of months ill have it good enough to upload.

Anyway they are all here:
http://inspinerate.com/video/tutorials/april%2007/
havnt been arsed to propperly link them up yet but ill get round to it soon.

Posted:I finally got the Halo Roll!!

(Yes I'm back here nailing all the newbie tricks.)



I'm well chuffed. wink



I thought it was quite tricky, turns out I was looking at it in the wrong way. For some reason I though there was an extra rotation between the shoulder blades... I watched the video again, and realised that I already knew how to do it!



Fishtails next...



Edit:

I lied, I went onto the conveyor belt... I've sorta got that too! biggrin Took me a good few hours though.



Hmm, I should start getting back into staff practice... I'll put down the diabolo for a while.



Edit 2:

Learning the Jesus is painful when you get it wrong...

*Rubs jaw*

Maybe I'll try to do the Steve for a while.

Posted:I'll join in the newbie posting! I got a jesus a few days ago, although it's really sketchy and mostly goes wrong... I agree with McAlpine, it hurts when it goes wrong

Also, nailed the snes, and managed to turn from the exit into a halo roll (I think). And I finally got the hang of the steve without smacjing myself in the face. Yay!

damn you staff! I haven't touched my poi in about 3 weeks.

Posted:I got the jesus!! biggrin And I can move smoothly from the conveyor belt into a halo roll! I'll just have to try and move from a conveyer belt to a jesus now, without stopping! smile



I got half of a SNES, meaning I can't get it to the second shoulder after I get it round my neck. Off to look at the videos again I suppose...



Take that bruised jaw!

I still need to do the Steve... I get worried that its gonna hit me hard in the back of the head as it comes down my arm.



What about you professionals? Learned any gravity-defying stunts? wink
