    I tried out a lot of different fast hand variants today!
    -Sara grip spike fast hands to ken grip spike
    -Airplane fast downspike fast penguin airplane
    -Penguin stuntplane fast hands penguin spike

    I am trying to get these slightly more tech fast hands clean so I can actually make some good use of them in the future!

    Trapeze to lighthouse to in.
    Trapeze to lunar to in.
    Mars turn(never tried before today)
    Turntable to spike

    Those are all separate tricks above.
    Tonight went out since it is such nice weather. In the 50’s in KY in December! And hit some new tricks. Trapeze to lighthouse to lighthouse flip to in.

    And hit my first Bird over the Valley. Missed the pin the first time but got the spike like 2nd or 3rd time I actually landed the trick

    Hit my first UFO while at BATB this wkend. Also Was practicing some underbird nod-offs and got a tip from a kid named Andrew, then watched Parker do one on stage with a different kind of grip, tried this AM and nailed it SecondT.. underbird nod-off to big cup (nod-on?) Back to underbird! Was hyped :)

    *edit* couple hrs after posting this I hit another UFO and then base cup to downspike fasthands working on downspike fasthands recently..

    Orbit j sticks are actually kinda fun.

    Do you start the j stick then do a front to back orbit or a side to side orbit? Side to side is WAY harder.

    When you do it side to side you have to throw a slowish j stick and then once it has completely left the tama do a really fast orbit 3/4 of the way through and the for the last 1/4 of the orbit really try to slow it down and catch the j stick. It is a super weird trick but very fun when you stick it...feels really good.

    I always handle it kinda like a whirlewind motion. Jstick first then a fast orbit.
