After spending many years on the tour as an Overall-player, I was bored with the limitation many of the other disc-events have. You did the same throw more or less all the time, practising too often by yourself, in order to maybe be able to throw the disc a little longer& I found what I was looking for in freestyle. The unlimited world of freestyle offer so much, so it is hard to understand that not all disc-players are freestylers. For me it today is the best thing to do&
Every time I play, I seek variety and flow. I want it to be a lot of movement in the jam, a lot of passing and running around. Move the disc to your partner in a smooth way, and keep the flow going. Combine the easy passes with some tough/risky stuff once the jam is ready for it, but always be prepared to go one step down to make the flow going. Stay alert and have split-vision, what is happening, where will your partner set the disc for you?
I love playing with the smaller disc, 40-, 50- 60- or 100-mold. It makes your hand sensitive and you can do a lot of touch-brushing, and shorter combinations. It also is a great warm-up before bringing on the big disc.
I try to vary my game as much as possible, but I always end up with a lot of tipping, brushing and skid/against-play.
Freestyle changed my life&
