Yes. The modified set list even has a Revsteining set, but I've never seen that one on a video. :)

Jay has hit Slicing (Gyro Rev Swirling) tricks I think, so maybe ask him for details.
I hate bad form and I'm a hypocrite.

Props on the ripstein stuff. Definitely a bit jealous of those. As for reverse swirling set, I've never seen a proper one done. The closest I've seen has been dragon set reverse swirling set, which Jon Scneider was doing in the early 2000s. I've never seen a revstein that involved a proper set on the first dex.

It may be a small dream to some, but this was my dream trick for so long. I had quit footbag, then upon returning, I injured myself. While I was injured, I learned this trick. I got about 100 of them. It's also the last trick I've done with a footbag. I injured myself again, perhaps to the point where I can not play again. I will be sad if thats the case, but at least I hit my dream trick, Ripstein. I will be satisfied with that if I must quit footbag once and for all. Footbag has taught me many things, both positive and negative, and I'm gaining wisdom from both experiences.

Ah man. Sorry about the re-injury :( That sucks. I've never hit ripstein. It's such a cool-looking trick, and yours was dope.

I am optimistic you'll play again some day.

You'll be back ;) I have a good feeling about it. You're an important part of the scene.

I don't know what the curtains thing was all about. I wanted to be like Kevin Hoagey and Nick Bologna and they had something about curtains in their title.

So, I've not improved on my injury in the least bit. I would guess this is my new normal living conditions. Footbag is done for me.

I wish I wasn't saying this because I've wanted to serve this community in a meaningful way, and in big ways. Now I don't even want to know what's going on with footbag because it hurts my heart. But I'm going to drop out of running the Joulukalenteri, The 2 sequels to Grand Theft Gravity, The Online competition series I was working on and whatever else I had I the works.

I am so very sorry. Please someone pick up where I left off.

Sad to hear Paul :( you have done a lot of great work already. I'm sure someone will come through with the goods on the calendar. It's only April now so there's plenty of time to get that sorted out.
