Footbag on Instagram – February 2019

February is a shorter month and we are getting things done early this time around, taking a look at what footbag material people have been posting on Instagram

Unfortunately I haven’t had so much time to kick this month, but I did get a short clip in one of my favourite locations.

I performed footbag at wedding party! ・ 【結婚式二次会でパフォーマンス!】 先日は高校の友人の結婚式二次会でフットバッグパフォーマンスを行わせて頂きました。 ・ 貴重な時間にフットバッグを使ってくれてありがとう! ・ 同年代の人達が多く、パフォーマンスの時間以外もとても楽しませてもらいました? ・ そして結婚おめでとう!末長くお幸せに。 ・ 今週末も結婚式でフットバッグパフォーマンスを控えています。 ・ とても大事な場。気持ちを込めてパフォーマンスしたいと思います。 ・ #footbag #フットバッグ #サッカー #フットサル #石田太志 #taishiishida #soccer #follow #世界一 #worldchampion #パフォーマンス #performance #performer #instagramer #結婚式二次会 #結婚式 #二次会 #ライブハウス #wedding #weddingparty

A post shared by TAISHI ISHIDA (@taishiishida) on

There have been some great clips and photos of the years of different footbag involvement at weddings. I had a few fun tricks in my suit after the event, while plenty of footbagger weddings have ended with an impromptu shred session.

Here is Taishi Ishida performing at a wedding in Japan!

All in the catch

I enjoy finding videos of people just doing some casual hack on Instagram. It’s great to see all levels around. Here is one with a stylish ending on the handcatch.

Footbag in Qatar

Some freestyle footbag fotos from #Qatar.

A post shared by Pavel Motorov (@pavelmotorov) on

Here is Pavel Motorov playing in Qatar. With the World Cup heading there in 2022, there could be more opportunities for foot sports over the coming years.

All sizes

Here is Sidharth from India going from the big ball to the small bag in India. Some nice flow to these tricks.

Speaking of India, Paloma Mayo has been doing some performances there in recent times too.

4 Square Manual

The Polish crew have put together this awesome guide to playing four square. Some top players showing how it’s done, but you don’t need to be a world level player to have a great time playing this game.

Beating Some Eggs

Here’s Cory Allen with a few eggbeaters in a row. Very nice style and I like the spiky bag. It’s a great idea to use bags with spikes or streamers for these kind of short clips.

Bag Brothers Cup 2

The turnout for the Bag Brothers Cup in Poland. Poland will be hosting the World Championships this year, so there will be big preparations happening throughout the year.


Vasek Skittles Flashback

A post shared by Vasek Freestyle (@vasek.freestyle) on

There has been a lot of older Vasek footage lately, this one is from a great Skittles advertisement. Like I mentioned, keep it colourful!

Eyes on the Prize

According to the Google Translate version of events, Pawel Nowak is the most popular athlete in his city in Poland. If he keeps pushing it with the big tricks, his popularity will continue. It’s great to have footbag recognised in these kind of sporting awards.

Footbag in Melbourne

Any footbag in Australia is always great for me to see, but it’s very exciting to see some solid improvements from Albert Hua since I first played with him in Melbourne a couple of years ago. Albert is from Vietnam and a great freestyle football player, nice to see a mix of the skills. Hope we can kick together this year.

Footbag on Instagram – October 2018

The months fly by and here is another round up of what’s happening with footbag on Instagram. There are plenty of players sharing their tricks from all over the world.

Here’s something from me at the Melbourne Central YHA rooftop. I actually shared a similar clip from the same location about a year before.

Rafał Kaleta – Barraging SS Motion

This is someone who has featured a number of times in these monthly roundups.  This is a trick I’m not sure I have seen before. He is someone who has been on the scene a long time, but really keeps pushing the boundaries lately.

Austrian Championships

Austrian Championships Warm Up

A post shared by Footbag Vienna (@footbagvienna) on

This time of year there are plenty of competitions throughout Europe and the Austrian Championships had a great attendance. Here’s a clip from before the competition with Dominik Simku in fine form.

Blurry Drifter – In Pants

It’s most common for footbag players to be wearing short sports shorts in order to have room to move around the bag. Not everybody needs that though, and here’s a smooth Blurry Drifter from Japan.

Franck Remy Footbag

Franck Remy is renowned across various disciplines and here is a cool little run of hims playing some footbag in Portugal. Looking at his profile he has recently competed at the King’s Cup for Sepak Takraw in Thailand as well.

Honza in the Seychelles

Honza Weber recently treated us to a video of his time in the Seychelles, with some amazing backdrops. It was also the location of his wedding, so congrats to the new couple! Here is a clip at this side of a cliff with some big ocean views with some different swirl varieties.

Pawel Motorov in Russia

This memory post looks to be a throwback to the World Cup held in Russia earlier this year, with Pawel Motorov putting on a performance for the passing crowds.

Horse Chestnuts

A post shared by Vasek Freestyle (@vasek.freestyle) on

Mads Hole recently featured Vasek Klouda and Dominik Simku using horse chestnuts to kick with in one of his videos from the World Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. Looking at the video, they work just fine, straight from the tree!

Shredding at the Louvre

I mentioned earlier it has been a busy time in Europe with regular competition, and Matt Kemmer has been to quite a few of them. I am always a fan of kicking in front of iconic buildings, so here is a clip from Paris.

Footbag Advertising

Footbag is part of an advertising campaign in Canada encourage more physical activity. Apparently doing so will have you “pooping better”! Camille Surovy is showing her skills in the video.

Muppet Footbag

View this post on Instagram

? “One fine afternoon, young princess Piggy took a walk in the forest in her bonnet, dirndl, and clogs. She carried with her a golden hacky sack, for hacking was her favorite hobby. For hours at a time she would bounce the little bean-filled bag from foot to foot. She had made an effort to play with it less, but alas, she couldn’t kick the habit…” 〰️〰️〰️ There’s more where that came from (sorry? ?) inside #Muppets “#FairyTales from the #BrothersGrimm,” out now and scientifically engineered to tickle every reader age 8 to 88. And best of all, it features amazing illustrations by ??? Find it on Amazon or at your local bookstore ? and we THANK YOU for the support ??

Now this a new take on some classic stories, with a Muppet appearance as well, with Miss Piggy playing with her “Golden Hacky Sack”. It looks to be from a collection of Muppets-related takes on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales.


Footbag on Instagram – April 2018

I am planning to do a couple of segments that pick up some of the clips that go across the social media networks and might not get seen by the rest of the community. The first one of these will be from Instagram.

Some #footbag tricks on the runway. Canberra Airport open day.

A post shared by Daniel Boyle (@boylefootbag) on

I’ve been trying to put up a clip daily on there and I find it a really good format. There are quite a few footbag players on there but there’s always room for more!

I’m just going to take about 10 clips from recent times that have impressed me.

It’ll be mainly freestyle footbag clips, as there is minimal footbag net on Instagram. However I’m opening up with this one, which is actually a set of pictures.

Footbag Medellin – Walt and Francois visit

Encuentro de #footbagnet #footbagMedellín #FootbagNetColombia #footbag

A post shared by Footbag Medellin (@footbagmedellin) on

The crew in Medellin, Colombia have had some high profile net players visiting. Walt Houston and Francois Pelletier have made the journey down to South America and seem to be having a great time. I have fond memories of my own visit to Medellin, so no surprises there.

Brayan “Bracho” Stiven

Sticking in Colombia, this one is from a couple of months ago, but shows a cool street show from Brayan Stiven. Hopefully one day we will see him compete at Worlds.

Por q esto es mi vida… 100% #footbag #freestyle

Paloma in Spain

Keeping on the Spanish language theme, Paloma has been doing awesome things with both footbag and freestyle football. This particular post had more than 1000 views.

Honza Weber – Adidas Tango

We don’t see too much of Honza Weber on the competitive scene these days, but he is still doing a lot of performances and you see some of the behind the scenes vision on his Instagram.

While everyone is always looking for the ideal shoe, he has made use of the Adidas Tango 18.1 model – they seem to do the job!

Vasek in Lights

Here’s something from Vasek Klouda, all lit up. He is doing a performance in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It looks awesome.

Nick Landes showing off

Nick Landes has recently been active on Instagram and his clips have not disappointed. This one is a gym clip using a really large orange show bag – he still shows great control.

College Kicking

This one brings the level of shred down, but that’s what it’s all about – having fun kicking a bag around. I don’t know anything about these guys, but they look to be having a great time.

Grand Canyon Kicking

I am a big fan of kicking with awesome natural backdrops – so this one of the Grand Canyon impressed me.

Brian Bear – Morpheus bsos

I don’t think this is a recent clip, but big combo anyway.

Houdini Polini

This is just one trick, and Nick has many more advanced videos on Instagram, but the view behind the newest member of BAP is awesome.
