Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Hopefully be back soon

15 May 2017

Long time no see fam. I typed up a big post but then modified told me to relog and I lost it. Oh well. In short: grad school has eaten up all my time; it's finally summer.

A few highlights:

-BSOS far butterfly
-fairy cloud (new for me)


Bag placement was poor.

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Hopefully be back soon

26 December 2016 Practiced for the first time in a long time today (over three months). Per advice, I took it easy for the most part. -50 toe op toe (1st try, hopefully not as rusty as I thought I'd be) -worked on some ATW/orbits and my flipside was dismal. -clipper practice. Ss drill, op drill, cli...

Re: AdAstra's Footblog

Hey everyone. I'm still alive. No footbag to speak of though because of how busy I am. It's killing me and I can't wait for a break so I can play.

In preparation for actually having some free time for once, what's the best way to get back into form?

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

20 Sept 2016 Thanks Nick! Unfortunately I haven't the time to focus on footbag in any serious way right now but I'm hoping that will change as I adjust to grad school. Practiced today for the first time in awhile. Drills: -ATW and Orbits bs -ss clipper bs -clipper op clipper (best 11). -tiltless str...

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

8 September 2016 Haven't practiced in over a week, which I think may be the norm now that grad school has picked up. Pretty unfortunate. Today I drilled: -ss clipper -op clipper (best 13) -far legover on flipside -strings (best 11) -clipper near mirage BSOS drill -mirage -clipper near pickup BSOS dr...

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

30 August 2016 Practiced today in ridiculous temperature and humidity. 93 F plus humidity plus blacktop is easily over 105F effective temp. Rough. Anyways, I have a new bag from Karibou Footbags so I spent part of practice trying to break it in. Love the colors as they match my soccer team. Drills: ...

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

25 August 2016 Thanks everyone for the responses! @bob- inspirational; thank you. Practiced a little bit today just chasing short highlights for the collab thingy. Didn't do very well since I wasn't very disciplined. Oh well. I'm going to be really strapped for time over the next ten months and I'm ...

Re: Footbag collaboration video

Definitely a cool idea. I can see the name and city thing below each player being a great way to show the abundance of the sport.

I'll try to film one myself though I'll be limited to my phone camera unless I can swing something somehow.

Re: Dan's Footblog

Sometimes I find it useful to force myself to start a string with x > y > z and then freestyle. That way I'm drilling the concepts without the monotony of x > x > x etc. I still drill of course, but I feel like this is a decent compromise.

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

Congrats on your milestone, I think you've shown how committed you are and getting some good improvements. Will you go to Worlds next year? That's something cool to aim towards. Thanks. Means a lot. Portland, right? I'd love to go and I think it would actually be doable time-wise and finance-wise. ...

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

Been spreading the sport left and right lately. Was at a picnic with the graduate director and all the graduate students and got to show what footbag was all about. The professors kids really got into it. Future gatesmans and vaseks and Honza's I'm sure. My demonstration was done completely cold and...

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

18 August 2016 Been a little while since my last practice. Maybe a week or so. I was really sore from playing soccer and moving into my new apartment so I haven't been able to play. The new parking lot is not level so I may need to go to the park from now on. Drills: -ss clipper bs -op clipper -stri...

Anz, what are the chances of you including this in your app? I looked into Swift for coding iOS apps and I just don't have the time. We'll see tho

I might actually try to write a super basic iPhone app. We'll see.here's what I'm thinking: Practice log: user presses a button to signify start of session. Adds up time played.

Re: AdAstra's Footblog: Summer Tiltless Grind.

No practice this weekend but I did spread the sport a lot this past week. Talked about it during grad school orientation to about 15 people, then played at the park and had a few people's attention, and finally played some soccer in Cincinnati with the FC Cincinnati supporters group I'm a part of. O...
