Grinds



This set of tricks involve flicking the diabolo up onto the stick and grinding the axle on it.


Go To:





Right-Hand Grind






  1. Throw the diabolo up at about chest height and turn your right stick sideways, so it points left.
  2. Now catch the axle of the diabolo on the right stick. You should tilt the stick a bit so the diabolo doesn't spin off it. Balance it on the stick for as long as you like.
  3. Now throw the diabolo in the air and catch it back on the string.




Chopstick Grind






  1. Do a Right-hand grind.
  2. Now pop the diabolo up on to the left stick making sure it is tilted correctly, with the stick sideways. Then throw it back onto the right stick, once it is controlled you can throw it back and forth.
  3. Now throw the diabolo in the air and catch it back on the string.
  4. When you've done as many as you want, instead of catching the diabolo on one of the sticks, catch it on the string.
