Rod Lavers and Quantum 3 for sale

Had those for a while and never used them, so I decided to let them go. All Rod Lavers have never been modified and everything is original. The Red and Blue Lavers have only been used a few times (not for hacking) but are like new imo. The Quantum 3 was used a few times and is great shape. I had a s...

The thing with the dragon stalls that I've seen is that you have to stick your butt up to rotate the cross the leg. Can you do it without doing so? Any link of a proper dragon stall that I can see? I once showed to my girlfriend a video of a guy doing a bunch of ducks n dives. I was all amazed and i...

IMAO Dragon is by FAAAAAAARRRRrrrr the ugliest move ever in footbag. Take a picture of a dragon stall, fill the player with black sharpie and observe the silhouette. It's hideous!!! The more adds the stranger it looks for a non player. Specially when you can't see the bag and the player looks like h...

You probably got microsuede instead of ultrasuede. UltraSuede light is pretty tough and doesn't fray (at least the one I have). I bought some microsuede at Joannes as well... some of them fray like crazy. The faux leather microsuedes are better. I was told by experient stitchers to put some nail pol...

After my first bag fell apart I made bag 2 and 3: http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o140/dimitrifrazao/03Bags.jpg Bag 2 is all USL and I used a AAA battery for gathering. It's really small and round, but it rolls too much :( http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o140/dimitrifrazao/02Bag.jpg Bag 3 was ...

I think access to footbag is another problem. Playing with a real bag makes a huge difference on improvement and consequently making the player more interested in the sport. When I was back home in Brazil I showed my girlfirend's little brother a few footbag videos. Next week the kid is trying to se...

Here's just a visual idea of the website dedicated to beginners. Something with information to get people started and motivated. Have a step by step process to get people to learn it fast and properly. Something divided in modules to get the newcomer to follow it. I'm not a web or graphic designer, ...

1-Shouldn't be intimidating. Don't have Top players performing 7 adds in the front page. It's beautiful for a medium to experienced player, but ultra intimidating for a beginner. People playing 1-2 (maybe 3) adds is easier to understand and more welcoming. 2- Having a variety of examples to prove th...

I'm a newcomer myself and I can say that footbag information is very cryptic and hard to find. There are tons of stuff out there, but is not so easy to understand it when you're starting. You have to be really interested to make the time investment to find and organize all that information scattered...

Thanks guys!
Too bad I just found out there's a spot where it's leaking :(
Probably some of the microsuede that torn off while I was gathering.
It happened a few times on the making.

Gotta work on the next one now :)

So maybe proper form is performing a trick perfectly, where no energy is wasted in the process? Like all body parts do what they're suppose to do (in order to perform a certain trick) so efficiently to the point where you don't spend any extra movement? Yep. Footbag seems very subjective and I can s...
