Holy shit, thanks a lot, Jorden. I've got a bunch of my inspiration from you. Did you catch the Moirius I hit in there? Thanks for inspiring so many players, including myself. Would love to see some more shred footage from you again in the future. The skippy sack stuff is insane, but I miss good old Destroyer footage.

Mark, great stuff. Paradon Swirl is so your calling. I agree with Evan, great video lately and I can't wait to see the rest.

Edit: Also, thanks Bonslaver and Boatz for the nice comments. Stoked for your finished video, Bonslaver. A certain ghost of a certain Fearless link's past will be happy too, I'm sure :P

Here we are with Day 23, and that makes it a trio of videos from the USA, we are taking a look at The Future of Footbag now, with the Nathan Bonslaver, who has made huge improvements under the guidance of Nick Polini.

A clue for the final day, it will not be from the USA.

A single tear in one eye at the end. From being some random younger kid that I met up with a few years ago, who could barely do flipside Legover in Nikes during his first session, to THIS... just... man... you've made me so happy. I won't give it away for others, but the end was just.. the best ending to any footbag video I've ever seen. I'll be commenting on Facebook when it's up too. You've made me so proud as a teacher and a friend. Great job, buddy.

The last day! Day 24 and boats was on the right track country-wise, but it's a different multi-time world champion.

Here we have Jan "Honza" Weber, one time child prodigy, three times in a row Routines World Champion, and someone who has taken footbag to some huge audiences in recent years.

And he has a little competition within the video which is a nice way to finish things off, so have fun with that.

Thanks to everyone for watching and especially all the submitted videos. Stay tuned for some fun footbag projects next year. Don't forget to try the Links of the Day, which have their own thread in this same forum.

Cheers everyone, and have a great Christmas.

I didn't get the chance to comment on every video like I wanted to. But I do wanna give another big thanks to Boyle and to everyone else involved in the calendar this year. All the videos were great. Things like this that the community does for each other is one of the things that keeps me loving footbag, and I probably wouldn't have even started if it weren't for the online community.

Spent an hour tonight going through and watching this footage. Thank you to everyone for their efforts.

It's such a walk down memory lane to see these players, these friends, these places. Really amazing.

Thank you and I hope everyone has a great 2016.

Interesting. I'd be curious to see which videos got the most views based on YT and Vimeo views. I have a feeling Olav's would still be #1 (has over 500 views), but a quick lazy spot check already shows that a bunch of videos end up in very different spots in the rankings.

I will be compiling all those rankings in the next few days, give it a few days for people to have a look again and a few re-watches etc. I think Olav's will come out on top.

Cool analysis. Surprised Olav didn't finish with the most overall. Lots of good vids in the calendar this year. Thanks for running it.
