What is harder than footbag?

Kick back and relax. Anything that does not have to do with footbag goes here!

A more serious answer from me, though I still maintain Chuck Norris is harder, faster and stronger than anything in the world. He came round my house once, i showed him some footbag. He laughed at me, took out a canonball, hit 25 beasts in one string and left looking somewhat dissapointed and unchallenged, but i digress.....

Playing the guitar would be mine. Ive always wanted to, and when im a bit more financially secure ill take some lessons. Finding my way around the frests wasnt as much of a problem as I was expecting, but strumming and picking - I just coudnt get it. The into to Green Day - Time of your Life was about all i ever managed. That and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

And parenting. Being a good parent is both tough and fun, and an almost constant learning experience.

Flatland for me, but to be good at most sports/hobbies takes years of practice and dedication.

Yea I feel like a lot of footbaggers would do well in Jiujitsu because half the battle is being body smart and muscle memory to lock in perfect moves every time.

Skateboarding and guitar for me. Shit is impossible.

I have been skateboarding for 16 years, that would be my choice next to footbag. I would say that because it is hard to go a day of skateboarding without slamming the pavement at least 20 times. There is a higher risk of injury. That is why I picked up footbag, it is extremely difficult for me and I can see myself doing this until I am 60.

Then again, anything can be just as hard as footbag. I got into a debate with a co-worker about this. He was CONVINCED that NASCAR, yes nascar, was the most physical and mentally challenging sport on the world. I told him that high level performance of anything can be as equally or more challenging. Think about the Tour de France. In my mind that is the most physically demanding event on the planet at the moment.

We as humans take everything that we can do to the physical and mental limit. Everything takes time and practice and is hard as hell.
