Thank you. It turns out around the world was something I had never tried before.  :-\ I will post a freestyle video here in the next coupla days. I need to learn barrel rolls first.

Ok, thanks to Professor Neff's video and ta0's in-person critiques, I can now check barrel rolls off of the list. Next stop, snap start club.

Ha! So you learned to do barrel rolls between 09:55PM and 10:48PM?  Are those one-sided or two-sided barrel rolls? Regenerating?
Congrats!!!!

All of the positive encouragement on the board keeps me going.

Is it possible to get the patches by posting videos on this forum and being evaluated by ta0?
It would be very hard for me to be tested in person, as I live in Italy and I don't get many chances to meet entitled examiners....

If so, do I just have to make a video of all the tricks in the "8" list being performed by me?
Does it have to be a "one-shot" video, for all 8 tricks at once? Or do I get a chance to retry failed tricks more than once?

Thanks for the info! :D

Yes, you can get the patches with videos. No, they do not need to be one continuous shot of the 8 tricks. You can do a shot for each trick.

I could judge them, but Spintastics will send you the patches.  So you might as well send the video links to Dale (yopro AT spintastics DOT com) and have the spin pope himself judge them  ;)

Cool!!!
Thank you ta0, I will put myself to work on this asap! One last question... Besides tricks that can be done with FP only, like wirewalker, etc.. and when it is explicitly said that bearing is forbidden (freestyle patch), is it possible to use OWB?

I can't wait to get my first patch, I love the feeling of "belonging" that I discovered on this forum, and this patch thing would definitely add to it! :D

LOL ciao Jim!  ;D

Ok, I promise I won't stick the patch anywhere until I can prove that I master the first 8 tricks... Cross my heart! :)

I believe it must be a Spintastic's top used.

You are right, I just printed out the patch request form, and it states that it has to be a Spintastics top...
Well, that can be achieved, I have the two Quicksilver Hybrids to use :)

Thanks for pointing that out, Larry! :D

Dale sent me this email:

Hi Jorge,
I received an email from Alessandro in Italy giving me the URL for his tricks and asking about the patches.
When viewing his videos I saw that there were a number of others doing the tricks. These people could also receive the patches but they need to pay the postage ($2 covers it) and send me their names and addresses. Pay Pal to "orders AT spintastics DOT com"
YO'ers,
Dale

I guess this would be for international requests.
