    Title says it all, what's your favorite "around ________" trick??
    Personally I've been loving Around Ddenmark lately. There's just something about how it flows that I love.

    What about you?

    p.s. describe what it is or post a video for anyone who doesn't know all the Around tricks (aka me).

    Around Denmark (not my video, but clear and to the point).

    "Around stalls" is what I think of it as. Big cup bird, small cup nightingale, base cup handlestall, SPIKE! This is just super satisfying when I land it.

    My friends a long time ago made this one fun stupid trick called Around Ken Diego (our group)
    Big cup, Fasthand light house
    Small cup, throw to airplane, ufo
    Base cup, juggle to spike
    Penguin base, under bird, in
    Gunslinger whirlwind

    Everyone's favorite trick was put into it and the idea was to make it just one combo of unrelated tricks.

    My fav would have to be around all american. I've been trying to get it consistent for a while and i'm still working on it. lol

    Around gunslinger and Around Denmark is up there as well (if only i can get consistent on the small cup-trade airplane part)

    I love around Denver. I saw DRobs post it a while ago. I believe it's
    Big cup, bird, flip in
    Little cup, in, whirlwind
    Base cup, in, throw to house, trade spike
    Penguin, in, throw to airplane.

    It's really hard but that throw to airplane is too satisfying.

    I love around Europe just because for me it helped me with my spike consistency also it can really help with Downspikes

    Around Canada!

    Already mentioned, but around Denmark is a good one. Around bird is classic, and @Instagrom3 is on point with the around airplane

    Around USA has been my go-to mostly because anything beyond it is far away from my current capabilities. I also have been doing these series of tricks that's not exactly considered an "around the.." and it goes like: Swing spike- earth turn- base cup- earth turn- whirlwhind- earth turn.

    What exactly is Around Canada? It's only right that I aim for this :)

    Bottom cup -> big cup -> little cup -> top cup -> super top cup, with a spike in between each, and at the end.

    Here is a quick clip of it, but to bird instead of spike:
