Posted:ok, feel free to use this thread to ask anything about technical moves or trick ideas for anything.

i'd like to know if its theoretically, or physically, posible to bunnyhop a unicycle onto a rolla bolla and survive(for at least 5 seconds), cause that would be an awesome trick and i happen to posses both peices of equipment needed.

yay for new tricks biggrin

Posted:I would say impossible. but i have seen pro jugglers a lot of things done that i previously thought impossible so give it a go and let us know the results

i dont know about rollas or unicycles but wouldnt it be easier to roll onto the bolla instead hopping?

I think it is possible. You would probably have to jump on inline with the rolla bit. But im sure it will be possible to do jump on.

Good luck. Wear an 'elmet.

Not sure if a rola bola would work - there's no need for the platform, just the roly bit.

Posted:I've seen a woman riding a unicycle on a large ball while she flicked spoons from her foot up to the teacup balancing on her head - I reckon that riding a unicycle on a rola bola is possible smile

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Luckily, it's a juggling video, if you fancy you can borrow it wink

Posted:you have to give him the tape first will...

ucof meant if you give him the vhs, he can rip it to a computer and then put it online.

i think.

i'm not sure you can do uni on a rola bola...

i had a look around for people that could do 2 rola bola's stacked up (as in tube-board-tube-board) and i can't find any.

i would have thought that that would be similar difficulty to trying to uni on one rola bola...?

its the good ol' double pendulum problem i think.

i would love to be proved wrong though ubbrollsmile

Posted:yup, it looks nice smile

on the subject of uni/rola bola:

I think it is definately possible. it would involve some weird weight distribution; either you would have to do a very quick short length idle and try and keep in the centre (staying inline with the platform, so as to rock the rola bola at the same time); or possibly quite a long length idle, again, inline with the platform, but shifting your body weight right back and forward, quite fast.

I also reckon it would be easier on a balance board

Posted:balance board??? pfffffffffffffffttttttttttttt! soft!, it looks basically the same as a rolla bolla anyway.

alternatively, you could take the usual stance on the rolla bolla and idle along the center keeping your lean non-existant (but that would be rediculously hard)
