Around Oban
« on: 10 August, 2016, 14:54:03 »
Back in 2013 at the BKO weekender, @MisterJumpshoe 's description/suggestion of Around Oban seemed ridiculous.

Time moves on, and I thought I'd have a try at filming it whilst the clickers were in Amsterdam. Although I didn't get all the way Around, I present to you The Oban Bypass:

And if you're asking "What's Around Oban?" then, come on, you really ought to be able to work it out.  :P
If you don't want to buy my books, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Oh, well done!

The trickiest part for me has been either the axe or going from spike to small-cup stilts. Good job getting that far!

Thanks chaps.
@MisterJumpshoe For me I think it'll be either Spike to Opposite Small Stilt, or from there to Opp Small Lunar.
@Jak On camera, yes. I'd been idly having a go, and it was going okay, so I decided to try to film it. You perhaps can't hear because of the wind, but that's me saying "Take 1!". :)

So... The race Around Oban is on!

@MisterJumpshoe I have seen Around Oban done before my very eyes! I thought that @akira tajima might be the man for the job, so I explained the trick to him at EJC. He hit it second go! On a Prime, but still amazing.

Great work!  Is Around Oban the official name, then?  Neat!

I will have to try it at some point.  My kendama has been...unfocused of late.

This is awesome, @Dimensions , but Around Oban has an "In" (Aeroplane) between the two Stilts.
