IJA Tricks of the Month by Johan Juslin from Finland | Diabolo

Hi, everyone! My name is Johan Juslin. I’m 29 years old and I come from Finland.

I am a circus artist specializing in diabolo and juggling.
I started juggling when I was 10 years old. I saw a Cirque du Soleil show on TV and the juggler in the show was just amazing.
Right after the show was done, I went to my backyard with 3 tennis balls and started practicing. I fell in love with the idea that it’s possible to manipulate more objects than you have hands.
Half a year later, I tried a diabolo for the first time and slowly it started to become my favorite prop because it felt so cool to have something spin on a string!
About a year ago, I started thinking that it would be nice to play diabolo in a skatepark with all the ramps and make the diabolo slide, bounce and go around everything that there is. Last summer it finally happened in a cool skatepark in Finland and here is the result!
I want to say thank you to Lauri Koskinen for filming and editing. The song used in this video is called “Club” by Andrew Huang.
