[Edit: JTV vids seem to be a bit stuttery. We'll try to fix them. Meanwhile, you can download the original from JTV if the tricks aren't clear. EDIT: FIXED.]


Very funny one. Will definitely give it a few tries, although I don't think I can do a spacewalk consistently, but adding an unicorn will probably help me with the consistency... same goes for the whirlwind.

Glad I watched the video! I would have ended up in A&E trying to transition from spacewalk to unicorn :o (If I get that far)

3rd place @ BKO 2016 Adv. Division. :-)



Current leaderboard:
1. @theobau Level 8 (clean) / Level 10 (2 misses)

Well done Theo!
Can anyone equal or beat him?


I can expect myself to do a level 7 clean. I will upload it anyway once I have some time (today has been crazy busy)

also, @theobau impressive skills, terrible framing :-)

Man, Theobau, looked like you breezed through the first lot! Was at the Dojou tonight so not had much time to practise this, gave a few goes and didn't get very far on the weekend, but tomorrow I'll have a fair crack at it. God I hate Spike Around the Side. Books, flowers and whisks I detest equally.

love the way theo makes sure everything counts


Two weeks left. Is Theo going to walk it? Anyone else still trying? (And if not, why not? :P)


I want to try and I'll probably do but:

1) I'm definitely not going to do better than theo
2) I've been freakingly busy lately

Well I put an hour or so into this today and have improved greatly at Tomeken with a book on my head ;D. However mosh kami hopping is okay but my hopping spike end is not and then the rest are also not ready for film :-\

Anyway it seems my consistency with distractions/hindrances is not up to snuff :-[ without it also needs work.
However I have hit a few turntables and a sweets special today but that's for another thread :)

I had a run through or two with the list, quite fun! Not taken too seriously as I am missing one key item from the list... But I improvised in the same fashion as I do with my omelettes...

Not good enough for first place, but possibly a podium finish if no other contestants!
