    First stilt flip last night.
    Been trying it for about a week, but haven't had much time to grind it.
    The sun was going down and I had just decided that I wasn't gonna keep going for it that night, as it's not the kind of trick you can really expect to land in a session
    Then, the very next try, I flipped it kinda high and slow, but bent my knees and there it was, right back in stilt.
    Used my beech shift shape kaizen. Not my favorite by far, but good for grinding stalls.

    I finally got Tunbridge Wells with my off hand. What a sadistic trick- sometimes you grind so long you start forgetting where you are :O

    I remember missing the last earth a couple years ago, but I never really tried hard again until recently.

    Congrats! First stilt flip is a milestone. I remember mine... I was grinding solo in the basement, and it finally went!

    Handlestall Flip finally. I typically dont grind on learning new tricks anymore, just mess around with it every now and then since I have less time and more things I want to do now so not as much time to really practice and learn new dama tricks

    Was catching some Naughty birds out in the wild tonight..! First time hitting bird to Naughty bird 1-turn in..
    Also was a first for me hitting swing up Naughty Birds..! I used to think swing up bird was crazy and impossible, and now I’m hitting swing up Naughty’s!! Here’s the clip of me hitting the Bird to Naughty

    I am very new but I have landed so many new tricks since tackling the KWC levels/years from the beginning. I’ve done swirls and taps, gunslinger and spacewalk, turntable and I have a lot more ahead of me to land. May not be crazy for most of you guys, but I’m excited for my progress and have had so much great support and encouragement from the community.

    Nice! Try learning birds, and once you get them down, handlestall! Thats a tough one to learn, you've gotta hone the balance skills

    Thanks, have done bird and underbird a bit. Not consistent but getting better. Landed handle stall once first try on a whim but dropped it when I tried to move to spike lol. Would love to get some stall game. Right now I need to learn how to juggle for the next trick on the list. Gonna be a long haul on that. I just don’t get juggling. Lol
