Variations in Routines
1. Hat to Back Stall - Start off by doing a toe stall or just kicking the footbag in the air. If from a toe stall, send the footbag up in the air and have it land on the bill of your hat (hat stall). From there you want to move your head back in a quick motion like you are looking up real quick, while simultaniously bending forward as if you were to bow. If done right the footbag should stall on your back. Then you want to lean even more forward until the footbag rolls up your back to the back of your neck. Then leaning either to the right or left and slowly bending up again, maneuver the footbag to stall on your shoulder. When standing straight up with the footbag on your shoulder let the footbag roll down the front of you and continue kicking. Danny C. submitted this trick and won a free Worlds Logo Stalling Star footbag.
2. Inverted Kicker Stall - This is a very hard trick to do, but once done, it looks very cool. First of all you kick the footbag straight up and catch it on the top of your head and stall it. Then you tilt your head back and let the footbag roll all the way down your back. Then let it roll down the backside of your best kicking leg. Then just as the footbag almost reaches your heel, you kick your leg with the footbag on it, backwards so as to make the footbag come straight up behind you. Then you tilt your head back and stall it on your forehead. Then you tilt your head to the direction of the player that you want to pass the footbag to. The footbag will then fall straight down at that point and you jester it onto the next player. Allan A. submitted this trick and won a free Worlds Logo Stalling Star.
3. Pause Stall - Kick the hacky sack straight up where the highest point that it goes is at the height of your head. Then move your shoulder underneath the footbag and when it hits your neck, catch it in-between the side of your chin and your shoulder in a stall. This trick looks even better if you have a drink in your hand and pause for a sip during the stall.
4. Shoulder to Shoulder - Toe kick the footbag into a shoulder stall (right or left, it does not matter). Then toss the footbag to your opposite shoulder into another shoulder stall. From the shoulder stall drop the footbag down and jester it and keep right on playing. James N. submitted this trick and won a free Worlds Logo Stalling Star.
5. Freefall - Stall the footbag on your shoulder with or without your chin. After that, simply drop down and bend over. The bag should land on your back. Stand up straight and let it roll down and kick it over your head with the back of your foot.
6. Booghill - Start off with the hack in a toe stall. Flip it straight up, about knee high. When it gets to your knee, hit it with your knee to go straight up again to about head high. Bend over forward like you are touching your toes and stall it on the back of your neck. Once stalled, roll it off on either side for an outside stall. If you are wondering about the name "Booghill", here's the story. A guy I hack with always uses his knee to set him up and his nickname is "booger". Another guy I kick with always stalls on the back of his neck and his name is Cahill. I combined the two and mastered the move. It's really a cool trick. Adam C. submitted this combo trick and will receive a free Stalling Star as a prize. We really enjoyed hearing why this was named "Booghill".
7. Stallorama - Start by completing a toe stall and set it in the air from that. Tilt your head to the side and let the footbag land on one of your cheeks out of the air. Tilt your head downward and let the bag fall onto your shoulder. Pop your shoulder to make the bag fall in front of your body onto a lap stall (a Russian) as you squat. Stand up and let the bag fall down in front of your body and pinch it in the middle of your two feet. To complete the combo, roll one ankle so you are standing on the outside of the foot and push the bag onto the inside of one foot with the other foot. Then hop over your foot so the bag is stalled on the inside of one foot and behind your leg (Clipper). HIt it up and keep kicking! Sounds hard on the ankles though and if not done right you could break or sprain one.
8. Whipp'n it Up - From a regular hit, lean forward and stall the hack on your back. Next, lean forward a little farther until the hack starts rolling onto the back of your head. Then, whip your head up as it gets to the middle of the back of your head. If done right, the footbag should fly up a few feet and come down in front of another player. Don't get a whiplash!!
9. Lee H. Mouth - Start by kicking the footbag with the inside or outside of your foot and then kick it at least three feet above your head and catch it in your mouth. Using a brand new footbag would be a good idea!!
10. Crazy - First throw the footbag up and do an "Impossible Jester" (throw the footbag up and swing your left leg over the footbag and with the other leg "Jester" it). As the footbag is on the way back down do an inside kick with your right foot. Kick it hard because you want it to go above your head and stall the footbag on the back of your neck. Then do a handstand and when ready come back down and stand up. The footbag should still be on the back of your neck. Let it roll off your right shoulder and catch the footbag in a front toe stall on your right foot. Balance is the key. THIS CAN BE DONE!
11. Twister - Start this trick with a hand spring pass facing a wall so it will bounce back towards you. Get back to your feet and rotate 180 degrees and catch the footbag on the back of your neck. Next, jump up into the air causing the footbag to pop off your back. Rotate another 180 degrees and catch the footbag on your neck again (you may repeat this spinning part as many times as you wish). Next jump up into the air again, but this time rotate and drop to the ground to catch it in a lap stall (a "Russian"). Now, raise and tilt your body so that the footbag will roll up your chest and stall it underneath your chin. Lastly, stand upright and drop it into a Jester (either side) and continue kicking. Mike T. submitted this combo trick and won a free Worlds Logo Stalling Star.
12. The Shimmy - First, from a toe stall or a kick, stall the footbag on your shoulder. The next steps are performed quickly: lean back a little and tilt the shoulder (with the footbag on it) up so that if rolls across your collarbone (this happens fast), when it is most of the way there, tilt the other shoulder up and lean forward. It looks funny and with practice you can get it to go far enough. Also, the footbag you use should be one that rolls well.
13. Sweet Combo - Start with a toe stall. Kick it up and stall it on your head. Let it roll down to your back. Make sure to bend over so it stalls once again. Roll it down from your back to the back of your leg. Catch it in your knee pit to do a "Charlie Brown". Roll it down to your heel and kick it over your head for a "Rolling with Charlie" toe stall then "Jester" out of it.
14. Bonniewood Loop
This is an extremely hard trick but it will make your friends say, "no way!" First, start with an outside stall with either foot. Then, flick the footbag into a toe stall with the same foot. Then kick it into an inside stall with the same foot. Next. kick the footbag into an inside stall with your other foot. Then kick the footbag into a toe stall with that same foot and still with that foot kick it into an outside stall. Now,here is the tricky part. Kick the footbag onto your shoulder. Then, wait a second so that it counts as a stall. Then roll it to your chest with your chin, wait a second, and finally roll it to your other shoulder. Finish with a Flying Clipper and keep then go on kicking. This trick reminded me of home. Anonymouse submitted this combo trick and won a free Stalling Star if we get an address.
15. Ultimate Stall Sequence
First you start out with an Inside Foot Start (go to Starts & Endings for explanation) and pop the footbag up into the air and stall it on either outside foot by slowly lowering it to the footbag. From there, flip the footbag up into a hat stall. Then flip your hat up like you are looking up at the sky and bend down foward. The footbag should land on your back. From there bend down and roll the footbag to either shoulder. Lastly drop the footbag off your shoulder and continue kicking.
16. Geometry
Start with a toe stall on either foot. Then, flick it up and hit it with your knee (same leg) and then onto your head for a head stall. Then, roll it down your body onto the opposite knee you just used and hit it with your knee. Then catch the footbag in a toe stall with that same leg.
17. Hacky Sack Jack
First you land a foot stall . Then, kick it up a couple of times. Then land a neck stall (on the back). Then do a Whip'in It Up (see #8 above) and do a foot stall or kick it to another player to finish it.
18. Neck to Knee Stall
Kick the footbag above head height to start. Then bend at the waist and watch the footbag fall (your head will be pointed up making a little crevice in your neck for the footbag to land in). Get the footbag over the back of your neck and bend your knees to absorb the shock of the sack landing on your neck. Roll it off your shoulder and kick it with the side of your foot to finish. Note - this trick looks really great if you follow it with a "Back o' the Knee Stall to Jester." (see #9 above) Ryan V. submitted seven very well described tricks of which this is one and he won a free Matrix AND a Stalling Star.
19. Neck Stall to Chest Stall
Do a Neck Stall but instead of rolling the footbag off your shoulder, throw it up about 8 inches into the air (done by lowering yourself more and then whipping your head up). Turn your body underneath the flying footbag so that you are leaning backwards and the footbag is about to land on your chest. Let it land and absorb the shock. Straighten your body to let the footbag fall and then kick it. Note - it looks really great if you do a Royal Jester immediately after this. (See Jester)
20. Sticky Shoulder
Start with the footbag in a simple toe stall. Then flick it up over your shoulder. Then kick it back with your heel, stalling it on your shoulder. Let if roll off to your front. Then start kicking again. It can be done!!
21. Head to Toe
Do a head stall, then drop the footbag to a toe stall.
22. The Neck Drop
First start off with the footbag on either toe, left or right. Toss the footbag up far enough to land it on the back of your neck. When it lands, slightly crook your neck to the side pushing it off your neck only to land it on the inside of the toe you started on. Practice makes players.
23. The Shoulder Sole Stall
Start this tick with a toe stall. Toss the footbag up onto either shoulder. Once it is stalled on your shoulder, put your leg in a sole stall position. You will then roll the footbag down your back onto the sole of your shoe. Practice makes players.
24. Stalefish
First catch the footbag on either of your toes (toe stall), then proceed to launch the footbag up onto the top of your head (or hat) and stall it there. It helps if you kick it high into the air and position your head just right as it comes down. Just as you would catch the footbag on your foot, you want to bring your head down as the footbag lands on it (absorb the shock). Also, try to be looking straight forward, don't look up. You must then thrust your head backwards with an upwards motion as to hit the footbag with the underside of either foot - a Back Stab - (although it should be the same foot that you did the toe stall with) and hit it back up to your head (or hat) and stall it there again. From there you can repeat the process again by dropping down to your front side and doing another toe stall.
25. Head, Foot & Shoulder
Start off with a toe stall. Then toss the footbag into the air onto the top of your head. The lean your head to the side and drop the footbag on your shoulder.
26. Back Spring Pass
First start off with a toes stall...then toss the footbag up to either your head, shoulder, or neck. Roll the footbag down your back onto the sole of your shoe and lower your leg a little while keeping the sole facing upwards and shoot the footbag over your head back to a toe stall. Practice makes players!!
27. Hit the Floor
To start this trick, kick the footbag a couple times, show your skills, then kick the footbag to a head stall. From the head stall jump and try to get the footbag in the air to a back stall or right behind the neck. From that, let the footbag drop and do a Rainbow so it comes all the way over your body. But you have to be quick because when it is over you in the air, go down on the ground and let the footbag hit your stomach area. Then on the ground try to come back up and keep on getting kicks on the footbag. It's a lot of fun once you are able to master the trick.
28. Bicycle Head
Start out with a toe stall. Launch the footbag up and above your head where you hit it with your head, sending it either backwards or forwards or to your side and continue kicking.
29. The Waterfall
Kick the footbag up about a foot above your head. As it comes down, let your head down about six (6) inches with the footbag and stall it on the top of your head. Straighten out again with the footbag still on your head. Gently roll it down onto your right shoulder and stall it there. You might need to hold it between your ear and shoulder for it not to fall off. Let it roll off, gently again, down your front on to your right knee, stalling it as close to the kneecap as possible. From there, let it fall down to your right foot and do a toes stall. The nsimply knock it up to a Jester on your left side. Then keep on kicking 'til the sun comes up. For a Jester see Trick #1, Stlaling Magic.
30. Gilly Stall Combo
First drop the footbag down on the tip of your toe (toe stall). Then you kick it up onto your shoulder and hold it there with your chin (pillow). Then pull down the footbag with your chin to your upper chest (Chinese phone book). After that drop it down and crouch on your feet, catching it with your thighs or knees (Russian). After that stand up as you are holding it with your knees and slowly drop it down your legs putting in o nyour feet. Then bring it down to a toe stall again. Kick it up with your foot doing another pillow, down to a Russian, and then stand up and quickly put your let up into a crossing type position (flamingo). Drop it down to a toe stall and kick it up and just kick it as many times as you can. Andrew G. submitted this trick and won a free Stalling Star.
