Dec 7: Diabolo advent calendar

Day 7: The high throw
We had the throw and of course we got to have the crowd pleaser. I would add high throws are not too difficult to catch if you point the handstick at the diabolo. The problem I always have in the garden is the wind which will take the diabolo a good 3 meters if you are not careful. Those 3 meters could mean over the fence, although it hasn’t happened yet.
