Today I had a back garden session. Got a few quickies in the can. Will water the RK insta with them this week.
Oof, my knees, my back,....

Swing to Bird > Whirlwind Spike (no turn).


Today I crawled out of hibernation and did my first 6th Dan practice run since the end of September. I passed (just), most unexpectedly. Extra latte for me today.

Today, in a luxurious 10 minutes of quiet, I landed Around the bird (or Bird around the world? Not sure*) - quite a basic trick really, but never seemed to get it before today. It was a tad wobbly, but I did it nonetheless. Video to follow later.

* Small cup, bird, big cup, bird, base cup, bird, in.

Nice one John.
No clicking time for me today, so here's some daftness from a few days ago.

I'm not trying that one!
However I did try your bird - no turn whirlwind with little success Mr @The Void . After 2 weeks of intense whirlwind grinding, especially working on the spin control, doing it with no spin just frazzled my brain a bit. I'll come back to it!

Amazing what a bit of practise can do...

Terribly shot, nevermind eh? I'd like a crack at Around the bird over the valley next. We'll see, need to brace myself for Outlink tonight first...

Helicopter > Helicopter Spike


This was the one (first clip) that I thought I'd half-spun, @rhys_goes_peace . Turns out it was more like ¾.

  Ok, thanks. I'm learning helicopter from the 'Click!' book - it looks super cool, but it's actually quite hard.  :)

Yeah, it took me a while to get to grips with it. Keep your eyes on the big cup as it's coming round.

Today was one of those days where nothing lands. Oh well, c'est la click.
