Hello from Singapore🇸🇬
Jun 29th, 2021 at 9:54am
 
Hello everyone!
I'm El_Jefe from sunny Singapore, I've been only slinging for about 2 weeks now, lots to learn, but not many places to practice safely and unobserved here in the tiny island.

But here is my first slinging video.
Sorry but It didn't occur to me I should've pointed the camera at the lake instead

Howdy from North Texas.

Your form looks a lot better than mine did after only two weeks.

Welcome from Finland! You got the hang of Fig 8 in 2 weeks and that's as long as you've been slinging at all? I was slinging for years and it took ages for me to get Fig 8. Great job!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.
I'm still slinging all over the place , sometimes releasing way too early or way too late , but when it's straight it feels great , by Google maps estimation my furthest was about 60 m

Always the way starting out and for some of us that continues for quite a while...  Grin

Ouch.
You are in one of the few countries on earth where finding a place to sling, no matter where you go, is a huge problem.
That'll just make your experience so much more special. Keep us updated.

  Welcome, El_Jefe.  It looks like you've been slinging for a year, not two weeks.

You're right , that place I slung is a popular public park , so I had to sling a few and leave before curious uncles start staring or start recording me.

Or else I have to go quite deep into the jungle to sling

for general sling practice, you can usually get away with tennis balls in public areas.
With tennis balls, More people tend to want to learn what you're doing than tell you to stop.

So always carry a spare sling and several tennis balls so they can have a go.

The butterfly sling is a really good place to start as far as tennis ball slings goes.: https://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1344443925/15

If you use loop attachments like i do, then you domn't need to find leather.
Because it grips the pouch at the sides without putting any stress on the holes, you can use: canvas, denim - almost any reasonably tough material Smiley
