    It's all about the process: are there any tricks you tried to land today but couldn't? This is for those days where we grind out a trick to share in the "what did you land today" thread but come up short. It is also a place to ask the community for tips on that trick you can't land yet. For me, it was inward lunar backflip cushion.

    I was working on this combo: lunar, stilt, in, base cup, a weird flip back to base cup, in.

    Didn't go after it today, but I've been chasing this line for the longest time:

    Underbird, Trade Lunar, Lighthouse, Trade to Bird, earth in.

    Try spinning it a bit faster and cushion it later than you think. Flip it straight as possible. Don't tap it. Just let Ken tap the Tama. Use your knees and you'll get it.

    Spike juggle spike, all day every day. As much as I practice the trick, it seems like I can never change something about what I'm doing to improve my odds. Any tips?, rotation of the tama when you toss it off spike/ from your hand?

    lol I love this thread! I've been going for candle grip swing up trade bird, juggle late sling, gunslinger juggle, and multiple juggles, also I've been trying to get single taps consistant. You can tell how bad I am at new gen stuff...:rolleyes:

    also been working toward this flow line- spacewalk-> swirl-> reverse spacewalk-> swirl-> butterfly-> carousel-> toss up-> opposite hand toss up-> tornado-> handroll-> kenflip-> in.

    kenflip, juggle, late kenflip, spike. It is so hard getting that late in there.

    Hahaha I checked in to respond spike, but your trick over shadowed mine. But really all of us miss the spike ending all day everyday:oops:

    Just work on getting a lofty toss on the tama so you have time to catch it. :)
