Variations in Routines
1. Russian Stall/Rocket - This is a simple trick that almost always pleases the crowd. Start off by setting the footbag about head high. As it is coming down, squat down to do a "Russian" to stall the footbag in your lap. Lean back on your arms if you need to catch the footbag. Once you have the footbag stalled, thrust your waist up to pass it to another player or get up quickly and keep playing.
2. Back Flip Russian Rocket - I've only seen one person do this. Start off by doing a regular Russian Stall/Rocket (see above) except have your back turned on the circle. Now, do not thrust your waist up. Instead, slowly open up your knees and let the footbag fall gradually until you have it between your ankles. Now, push off the ground with your feet while leaning back on your arms and release the footbag when you get your legs high enough. The footbag will fly over your head and to another player in the circle. This trick takes lots of practice and upper body strength. Please be careful when practicing it.
3. 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.
4. Five Star Combo - First drop your footbag onto your foot. Do a toe stall. Then from the toe stall flick the footbag over your head and stall it on the back of your neck. Then roll the footbag from your neck onto your shoulder (you might need to use the side of your head to catch it). From your shoulder, bend down like you are sitting in a chair, "A Russian", and drop the footbag into your lap. Then stand up slowly and straighten your knees and let the footbag drop onto your feet. Then flick it up and jester it out to someone else.
5. 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.
6. Four Stall Combo - First drop your footbag on your foot, doing a toe-stall, then from the toe-stall flip the footbag on to either the brim of your hat or your shoulder (either one works). Then move into a position like you are sitting in an invisible chair, a "Russian," and drop the footbag from either your shoulder or hat onto your lap. Then to complete the combo, slowly stand up and move your knees apart allowing the footbag to fall onto your feet while not touching the ground. Ken R. submitted this trick and won a free Worlds Logo Stalling Star footbag as a prize.
7. Five Star Combo - First drop your footbag onto your foot. Do a toe stall. Then from the toe stall flick the footbag over your head and stall it on the back of your neck. Then roll the footbag from your neck onto your shoulder (you might need to use the side of your head to catch it). From your shoulder, bend down like you are sitting in a chair, "A Russian", and drop the footbag into your lap. Then stand up slowly and straighten your knees and let the footbag drop onto your feet. Then flick it up and jester it out to someone else.
8. Lap and Cap - The footbag is kicked up and lands on player number one's lap (a Russian). Player number one then stands up and kicks the footbag to kicker number two who stalls it in his or her lap. Then kicker number two stands up and lets the footbag slide down to his/her feet where he/she catches it between their feet. Then kicker number two flicks up the footbag by jumping and pulling apart his/her feet which flicks the footbag up to his/her cap and it is caughte there. See how many times you can do this series of moves between you both taking turns being kicker number two.
9. 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.
10. Down the Ladder
First kick the footbag and stall it on the top of your head. Next, roll the footbag down your head and try to catch it in your mouth (don't do this part if the footbag is dirty!) Then, throw it up from your mouth and stall it on your chest. Then roll it down your chest and stall it in your lap (as if you were sitting in a chair). Last, you let it roll down your leg and catch it inbetween your feet so you can pass it or just jump up and continue to kick.
11. Jester Combo
Start off by just kicking the footbag around. To begin the combo, stall it on the brim of your hat. From there simply let it drop down and stall it on whatever foot you are most comfortable with. From there fling the footbag up in the air and stall it on your back. Then, let it roll down your neck towards your head and when it is close to falling off the end of your head, give it a nice whiplash effect flinging the footbag high in the air right in front of you. As it comes down, bend your knees and let the footbag stall nicely in your lap. To finish off the combo, let the bag fall through your legas and as you let it fall through, begin to stand up and cross your left leg over your right and kick it with the inside of your right foot like you would a Super Jester.
12. Body Stall
Begin this trick with a toe stall. Flick the footbag straight up above your head and stall it on your forehead. From here you need to look forward while leaning backwards so that the footbag will roll down and land on your chest. Next, crouch down into a squat position with your thighs pressed together. The footbag should roll down your stomach and land in this crevice that is created with the crouch. Now you have to gain your balance and pop your thighs up staying on your right foot. The left leg should squeeze just over the footbag before you land on that foot to then bring your right leg underneath and stall the footbag in a right footed Clipper stall (this is also known as a crouching butterfly). Finally, it is my personal preference to end by setting the Clipper stall up and back over toward the right leg where you can then circle the footbag from out to in and stall it on your right toe. People will be impressed! This was submitted by Chris M. who won a Stalling Star.
13. Cold Fusion
Start by kicking it up a few times. Then kick it with the inside of your dominant foot so the bag goes straight up in the air. As it is falling down, squat down so that you catch it in your lap (make sure it is resting between your legs - if it's by your crotch your pants will get in the way). Then jump up and open your legs to let the bag fall and bring your non-dominant leg over your dominant one and then kick it with the inside of your dominant foot (sort of like a mini-butterfly). While you are squating it is best to keep your balance on your toes so that you can jump higher.
14. Russian Dancer
You start by simply stalling the bag in a Russian (squatted down with legs together and the bag lands on top of the legs and sits in the middle of the legs). Once stalled, you must thrust your waist out to pop the bag up. Then kick it with the top of your right foot back into a Russian. Then, repeat the process only now using your left foot. Do it back and forth using the right and left foot to kick the bag once it comes out of the Russian. This is a crowd pleaser.
15. Russian Jester
Kick the footbag to chest level and drop into a Russian (crouch). Let it land in-between your legs then jump up letting it slide through and do a nice little tight Super Jester..
