Dec 5: Diabolo advent calendar

Day 5: Its our first combo, the hand grind to whip.
You have seen the previous two separately but this is the beauty of the  diabolo, the combinations. I have seen everything from 2-3 trick combos to 24 trick combos from the pros.
Watching the pros perform their combos is like magic.
Some tricks chain together nicely, some need you to end in a certain way to move seamlessly to the next one. There’s a neutral respect for those who make it look elegant.
