Hi, well, there are often people asking about the Boing-E-boing trick as, for those who can do it, it is much harder to do than it looks like.
I found the existing tutorial not sufficient in order to get what’s going on, some are good and all, but none really helped me in getting the trick right.
Once I got it right, I tried to break it down for my friends so I could show them and teach them how to do it. After a discussion on a board, I decided to do a quick video, trying to show some of the elements that I find important in order to get that trick down. Hopefully it’ll help you guys out.
Oh, and this is about the side style boing-e-boing, I find it much easier due to easier hand positioning, and sidestyle is just more common nowadays. It’s a tiny bit harder to do it front style, but the principles are basically the same, it’s just less “readable” from the thrower point of view.
anyway, here’s the vid.
