Nice finds!

That is a giant disc top from Japan! I like the contraption he made to spin it ("waist launcher"?).

I wonder where the first guy is from? His name is spelled in English (Patrick) but the posting comment is in Spanish. Puerto Rican maybe?  ::) Nice dynamic video.

It is always nice to see our spinning hero from Dasi, Taiwan. What was his name? I cannot find it.

PS: Perhaps the Taiwanese and Japanese videos should have been on other threads for easier search.

While the guy in the first video has wonderful skills, I found the video to be over-produced. 

I like the real-time footage, and the slow motion footage.  But, the sped-up footage and the reverse motion footage only serve to confuse, IMHO. 

Just one noob's opinion....

Waist launcher!  Very clever.  I know Austen would love to try that.

That first guy is quite good.  Wonder where he learned his tricks?  I am guessing he has been on this board.  I, too, wonder what his name is?

Thanks a lot JohnM for reminding me the name the amazing Mr. Lin Sen Hai (posted on another thread). I need to memorize it.

Mike, the name of the poster of that video and most likely the player is Patrick Bonilauri.

Where is Patrick from?  The bougainvillea in the background suggest somewhere south of ~30 degrees N Lat.
Skills all the same.
