Variations in Routines
1. Funky Toe Stall Start - Start with an inside foot stall (right leg), then grab the stalled foot, jump and bring your left leg over the grabbed, stalled leg. The jumping will make the sack fly up into the air then stall it on your left leg. Be careful, sounds like you could hurt yourself.
2. Inside Foot Start - First, with your feet, you push the footbag onto the inside of your right foot. Then cross your left leg in front of your right leg, and finally you lift your rigfht foot like you're kicking your own behind which should get the footbag to go in front of you where you can keep on kicking. (This can also be done using the opposite legs).
3. The Classic "O" Start - Either start from a toe stall or just pop the bag up in front of you to about chest height. Jump up off both feet and bring them together while bending your knees outward forming an "o" with your legs. Then kick the sack up with the insides of both feet, where they touch. You get quite some height from this and it leads well into other tricks.
4. Snap Start - When the footbag is on the ground, take your left foot and slide the footbag onto your right foot. Then place your left foot on the edge of your right foot. Then push your right foot up and the footbag should flick up into the air and you can continue playing. (If you find that you can't get the footbag to go high enough, increase the force on your left foot.)
5. Side Start - Standing with your feet facing forward and parallel to each other about 1 to 2 inches apart, put the footbag in between your feet positioned at your arches. Then using your left foot to hold the footbag onto the inside of your right foot, rotate your right foot sideways so the inside of your right foot is facing upwards and you are standing only on the outside of your right foot and the footbag is resting on the inside of your right foot. Move your left foot in front and past your right foot and then stand on your left foot. Then move your right foot upwards to flick the footbag into the air and then move your right foot in front of your left foot and kick the footbag before it hits the ground. Once you learn it, this is a cool and fast way to start kicking without having to bend over and pick the footbag up. DON'T TRY THIS WITHOUT SHOES ON BECAUSE YOU MAY BEND YOUR ANKLE TOO FAR AND HURT IT! Sounds very hard on the ankles though and if not done right you could break an ankle - we recommend just picking it up.
6. Around the Head Start - This start is done by taking the bag with either your right or your left hand and swinging your arm back behind your back (like you are scratching your back) and let fly to the left of your head if you used your right hand and reverse for your left. The footbag should fly to the right or left of your head and come to an inside kick position. It's hard to get the right release point to make the bag come where you want it.
7. Heel-Roll Start - This start is performed by placing the footbag on the ground and your dominent foot directly in front of the sack (with heel touching). Start by using your other foot to roll the sack up the heel of your dominant foot, then quickly bend your leg upward flicking your ankle to pop the sack up arching over your shoulder (while doing this make sure you are bringing your other leg back down to stand on). Finish the start by kicking the sack with the inside of the dominant foot then the inside of the other foot and continue kicking or pass the sack on.
8. Vertical Chicken Scratch Start - Scrape the bottom of your foot towards yourself and across the top of a grounded footbag, forcing it onto your toe which rapidly pops it staright. Next, toe stall the footbag and continue kicking.
9. Shirt Stall Ending - When the footbag comes to you about eye level and close to your body, grab the bottom of your shirt and catch the footbag in the bottom of your shirt which you have now made into a pocket.
10. The Flicker Start - Stall the footbag on the top of your shoe. Then bring your opposite foot over to the other one with the edge of the opposite foot on top of the edge of the foot with the footbag. Then just press down with the opposite foot and lift up with the foot with the footbag and it will pop right up. As you get better at it you can learn to angle it to pass it to another kicker.
11. Fake Out Start - Start with the footbag in your hand and throw it up (about head height) and follow the footbag with your best kicking foot. Then just as it hits the ground, step on the footbag and pull your foot back and flick your toe. This is quite hard at first but gets easier as time goes on to get the footbag back in the air.
12. Sideways Scratch Start - Move your foot of choice inwardly sideways over the footbag while making slight contact with it so that it rolls over your shoe sideways. Try practicing just rolling it over your shoe while flipping the footbag up. Always make sure to keep your shoe facing forward the whole time. Also, the movement of your foot should be a right angle. Daniel S. submitted five tricks and won a free Stalling Star.
13. Over-the-Head Scratch Start - This is for when the footbag lands outside of the circle. You get it back in without picking it up and walking back. When you walk towards it scratch with your back to the circle, quickly, but instead of flipping it forward, lift your leg way up so that it goes up backwards over your head.
14. Two-Footed Scratch Start - Stand with one foot about a foot away from the other one with the footbag diagonally on the outside of your foot and bring your feet together so that the footbag lands between both feet. Then jump up and release.
4. Back Flip: Grip the footbag on the ground between your feet and kick your legs up behind you. It won't go over your head at all unless you jump forward a little when you flick it up.
15. Back Flip Start - Grip the footbag on the ground between your feet and kick your legs up behind you. It won't go over your head at all unless you jump forward a little when you flick it up.
16. Hat Catch Ending
Instead of catching a footbag with your hands, you take off your hat and catch the footbag on the inside of the hat. Then bend over and stick out the hat and give it a swift kick right where the footbag is. At the same time, release your hat so it flies up too and then catch your hat on your head. It sounds complicated but it is easier than it sounds. The harder you kick the hat the better your chances of catching your hat on your head. Once you have your hat on you, wait for your footbag to come down and you catch it. Anonymous submitted this trick and won a free Stalling Star.
17. Toe Stall to Cross Over Start
To do this trick, first land the footbag in a toe stall. Then pop it up to an inside foot stall with the same foot. Then, slowly bring your foot down to the ground while carrying the footbag on it. Place your foot on the ground and support it with the other foot. Take the foot not holding the footbag and place it over the other one so that you are in a Jester position. Then, jump up in the air and launch the footbag straight up as you would do with a Jester and keep on kicking. Harley A. submitted 2 tricks and won a free Stalling Star.
18. Super Crossover
First just toss the footbag up, cross your feet and stall it in between them. Then jump and while in the air uncross your legs and if done correctly, it should be sent straight up to continue kicking.
19. Pop Start
Do a toe stall and bring your foot to the ground. Bring your other foot on top of the stalling foot (which is on the ground) and push your toes up as hard as you can. This makes the footbag go into the air and sets you up for another trick. It works kind of like a spring board action and is pretty easy.
20. Around the Back Start
Start with the footbag in the right hand. Then slightly lift the shirt away from your body with your left hand. Then throw the footbag into your shirt towards the left. The footbag should follow the shirt around the back and then shoot out on the right/front of the body into a perfect starting position.
21. Sick Combo Ending
Start with an Around the Back start to a toe stall on the right foot. Toss the footbag over to the left side and do a Clipper and spin the right leg back around to an inside stall. Flip the footbag to a knee tap to outside stall. Rainbow the footbag to an opposite outside stall, then toss the footbag into the air and jump to the left foot and Flying Clipper (Jester) the footbag with the right foot to a right leg knee stall. Let the footbag roll to an outside stall on the right foot. Flip the footbag to a heel stall and do a Scooping Clipper. Catch the footbag in a hat and put the hat back on with the footbag inside and walk away. Jacob W. submitted 3 tricks and won a free Stalling Star and a deCinco.
22. First Man on the Head Ending
Start with a toe stall, then kick it up into the air and hit it with the inside of your foot. When you kick it with the inside of your foot, catch it on your head to do a head stall. Then, drop it down and kick it with the outside or inside of your foot and catch it in your hand (Great for public performances).
23. The Illusionist Start - Start with the bag between your legs and hold it with your left toe against the inside of your foot in the middle of your shoe. Then roll your foot sideways so the bag is resting on the inside of your foot like an inside stall. Then bring your foot behind your left leg like you jest did a Jester. Then flick it out towards somebody and catch it as it gets close to them bringing it behind your back as if you are trying to scratch your back, and throw it over your left shoulder which should put the bag by the outside of your left foot. Then do a full rainbow and an inside kick to a backstab, passing to someone or continue on your own. This and four other tricks submitted by Terry L. who won a Stalling Star.
24. The Lost Start or Ending (a joke) - If you wear a light jacket, make sure your hands are in your pockets and kick the bag just right so that it goes straight up into the inside of your jacket and hold it there with one of your concealed hands and everyone will wonder where it went until you drop it out and kick it again or if ending a routine it seems like magic. (Be sure you do this only with your own footbag) This and four other tricks submitted by Terry L. who won a Stalling Star.
25.Quit Stalling Ending
While kicking the bag, do a toe stall on either foot. Kick the bag up and stall it on your knee. From there, hit it high and tip your head forward so that it stalls the bag on the back of your neck. Let the footbag roll off one side of your neck and toe stall it on either foot (assume it is the right foot). From there, kick the footbag across your body and stall it on the inside of the same foot (your right one) but have this foot behind your left leg. Flick the bag up and stall it in your hand.
26.Sunny Side Up Start
With your right foot held out in front of you, stall the bag on top of your foot swinging it underneath and behind you like a pendulum. Once your right foot behind you is at the top of its swing (bag still above your toes), swing it back down toward the left side of your left foot. As your right foot meets your left foot, roll the sack onto your left foot and lift your left foot up. When performed correctly, this trick is one fluid movement.
27. Side to Side Ending
Drop your footbag into a toe stall on either toe. Flip your footbag up about knee high off your toe towards your other side. Toe stall the footbag on the toe where the bag is headed towards. Repeat the previous sequence about five times from foot to foot. On the sixth time, flip your footbag off your toe about waist high to the opposite thigh and stall it. Then hit it to the other thigh for another thigh stall. Repeat the first sequence about five times. On the sixth time, flip it about eight inches above your head to a head stall. Pop your footbag off your head into a Flying Clipper. Catch your footbag in your hand on the way down from the Flying Clipper. Practice makes perfect.
28. Horsekick Start
To begin you put the footbag in the crease where the back of your thigh and the back of your leg meet (180 degrees around your leg starting at your knee). Once the footbag is in place, you kick your foot back in the direction in which you want the footbag to go. If you do this correctly the footbag should shoot out from the back of your leg towards where you are serving it.
29. Flip Start
Start off by clinching the footbag in between both feet. Then jump up kicking your feet against your rear. When your feet are close to hitting your rear, open them up a little while in the air. If done right the footbag should come out of your feet and go high over your head and land in front of you where you can continue kicking.
30. The Duncansaurus Start or End
Vertical Chicken Scratch the footbag onto a toe stall on your left foot. Then keeping your leg straight, bring your foot as far left as it can go with the footbag still on your foot. Then quickly bring your left leg into your right, clicking your heels together and thrusting your right leg forward. When done correctly, this trick transfers the footbag from your left foot onto your right foot and is scooped into play with your right foot. It helps to start practicing in your bare feet and then to use shoes.
31. The Duncanarmflick Start
Hold the footbag up in your hand with your arm straight. Then slowly let the footbag roll down your arm by bending it and when it meets your elbow, quickly straighten your arm and the footbag will pop up into the air.
