  • Player Bio

    Lori Daniels has been a prominent figure in the freestyle community (and flying disc sports in general) for more than 20 years. She started freestyling in Virginia, and quickly became a welcome face amongst fellow competitors.

    Her style and spirit exude Aloha, and not just because she used to live in Hawaii. Lori was a primary proponent at the 2002 FPA World Championships of having many of the top female jammers compete with “up-and-comers” as a gesture to grow the female component of Pro Disc Freestyle”. Her love for the sport is contagious and she spreads the “aloha spirit” wherever she goes.

    Lori travels far and wide to get her fix of freestyle practice, competition and jams. She loves to put on a good show when she’s competing. She is a presentation queen! The crowd loves her flow and entertaining routines. Lori’s signature moves include Oliver and Bad Attitude catches, while her gymnastic cartwheels are amazing to behold.

  • Career Highlights

    Playing disc in Sweden, Italy, and Germany; hosting the 1997 FPA Worlds in Hawaii.

  • How I Started

    I saw Eric Wooten and Eric Olsen jamming at Ball Circle, Mary Washington College (Virginia). I was in awe! My college buddies, Kent Birkle & Paul Hobsen decided to teach me how to nail-delay.
