I've been spinning diabolo for about a year now. here are some of the locations where playing 'the devil on two sticks' was the most enjoyable...

1 portobello beach, edinburgh

2 the mound, new town, edinburgh

3 outside the scottish parliament, edinburgh

4 on the national monument, calton hill, edinburgh

5 oban harbour, argyll and bute, scotland

6 near ilkley, yorkshire moors, england

7 portobello beach (again!), edinburgh

8 cramond, edinburgh

9 erm... somewhere in edinburgh's old town. I performed a diabolo routine at an event run by top psychology bloke richard wiseman, pictured here with one of my diabolos.

I like 5 the most. It looks like you are fishing with it somehow.

Where can't you spin diabolo!? Awesomeness. I love 1 and 4 :)

w - there's probably a few places where spinning a diabolo is not permitted, or at the very least frowned upon. like... um, let's say... in a church during a service, or in an operating theatre during a particularly tricky brain surgery operation. not that I wouldn't be willing to try, mind...

Wendle says:

That's a small operating theatre; there's not enough room to spin a diabolo!

w - I've found that it's surprisingly easy to diabolo in a small area. I often practice in my living room (which is tiny!) and I rarely knock anything off the shelves, although one time I accidentally knocked the big mirror off the wall!

Wendle says:

Well there goes my new turn of phrase.

Have you ever tried setting up some targets and trying to knock them off your shelves?

billion says:

ah, that would be just too easy. it takes skill to knock a big heavy mirror off a wall...
