I have been doing both for around two years now, and now have some skills. Smile I was wondering if anyone here does them? Some sites dealing with yo-yos and diabolos.

If you want to see what is possible with a yo-yo, watch one or two videos (Try "Yellow Airplanes"). Steve Brown has a few videos on this site, he was the stunt yo-yoist in
"Zoolander."

Around a year ago, I went to the beach with my diabolos. I wasn't planning on having a crowd around me, and wasn't used to it. When I shot the diabolos in the air (I had two on the line), one went straight up, the other went left... And almost hit someone on the head. Thankfully they moved, no lawsuits. Smile

I was teaching a class and was doing diablo, went for a impossible knot to whip catch, as the diablo went up it hit the tent roof!!!(next time look up FIRST) hit the tent and went spinning at the front row!!
I did the only thing I could do, the whip catch. and DID IT!! the guy in the front row who I missed by inches thought I was god!

yeah, I meant ta do that. Smile

Love the diablo site! Smile

I love the diablo! I've been doing it for 5 or 6 years but don't generally have time to work it into my act. Still fun to play with!

Diablolo is great - I think it is easier to perform with than a yo-yo as it's more visable. Check out the performances and books of Donald Grant if you can. Great stuff.

Cheers

I've never really got into the Diabalo, is there many tricks you can do that don't involve throwing it in the air, tricks that are fun for someone to watch? Smile

Did you look at the site Volant started the post with? There are LOTS of tricks out there but I will grant you that the crowd pleaser is the high toss.

I use the high toss as a running gag throughout my show going higher between each trick. My big finish is the magic knot to whip (can be done inside) with a very high toss ending if I am outside.
I like the diabolo folies tapes
