A recent footbag session in Santiago’s Plaza de Armas turned into more of a cultural experience, with a live band joining in the fun.
The band played while Daniel Boyle gave a footbag demonstration for some interested onlookers. You can see the video below of the show. Daniel used a Phat Tyre bag.
Despite never having met, everyone involved was able to put on a great show for the passers by in Santiago’s downtown area. Daniel managed all most three minutes before dropping the bag.
Thanks to the donated bags from Flying Clipper, the sport is gaining traction in Chile, with a demonstration at the recent Milk Cup qualifiers in Colina and meetings with various charities in order to use footbag as a tool for personal development in poor communities, as well as the ongoing footbag and English classes.
Aside from these developments, some of Chile’s best freestyle football players have also taken to footbag. While Vasek, Honza and others have led the way with the transition from footbag to freestyle football, there are fewer cases of others coming into the sport of footbag.
We’re sponsoring World Juggling Day!
Flying Clipper is sending 7 of our new Phat Tyre 12-Panel Juggling Balls and a Logo Pouch to this amazing event for one lucky winner to take home in the raffle!

This review came up on our Rave Reviews section of the site and we thought we’d share it:
I have restarted my interest in kicking footbags after a decades long absence and have purchased lots of footbags in the past few months. I love these Dirtbag bags for how well they stall and kick in general. The Mighty Mite is great for just kicking for consecutives as it is easy to control and stall while the larger Phat Tyre bag will stall on the end of a finger. All I need to do is get my foot in the general vicinity of the bag and it will stall for me. These bags are great for control and a long and invigorating aerobic workout.

In his role as ambassador for the Danone Nations Cup under 12 soccer event, former Universidad de Chile striker Diego Rivarola was given a footbag and put on a short show for the crowd gathered.
To know some of Diego Rivarola’s exploits on the field, see this homenaje video created after his retirement in 2011. He is particularly known for last minute goals against Colo Colo in the superclásico.
“Gokú”, who scored more than 100 goals for Universidad de Chile spent the morning signing autographs for excited fans. Rivarola was not the only person to get involved with footbag, with some of the young players having a turn. The footbags were donated by Flying Clipper helping with education programs in Chile.
Daniel Boyle teamed up with freestyle football player Cata Vega, who represented Chile at the 2012 Red Bull Street Style in Italy, to give an impromptu demonstration.
The team that wins the tournament will represent Chile at the Danone Nations Cup in London later in the year.
Next week there will be some more footbag interactions at junior tournaments, with Daniel Boyle giving a demonstration at the Rumbo al Milk Cup 2013 tournament in Colina. Daniel will be giving English lessons to the winning team to prepare them for the journey to Northern Ireland.

I played professional footbag for 20 years, retiring in 1998 from footbag golf. I had already given up competition in freestyle and net and footbag golf was the last footbag event that I played competitively. I have won more than a few tournaments. As anyone who has played footbag golf knows and for those of you who do not, the golf holes are above ground and have the dimensions of 18” round and 18” high. The holes are cone shaped with a tray at the bottom for roll up puts from outside of a 30 foot putting circle. In my years of playing footbag golf I learned the wisdom of the roll up and would most often position my approach shots to land at about 30 feet so that I could have a “two for one” option of making it into the basket or rolling up into the bottom tray. I worked hard on my 30 foot puts in practice and in my best days I could hit 7 of 10 shots from 30 feet. Most went into the basket but about 25% of them would land in the roll up tray. I learned how to roll the entire 30 feet with some puts when conditions dictated.
I also manufacture footbags and on one of my visits overseas for production, my hosts would go golfing everyday at about 4:00 p.m.. They would play on a private course owned and operated by the local military. It was a 9 hole course. Being left handed and never once playing regular ball golf, I tagged along with my hosts from hole to hole on their round. When they would finish putting and go to the next tee, I would pull out my three putters that always carried around in my pocket and take a few quick puts before catching up with my friends at the next green. I did this all the way around the course. When we all reached the final hole and as my friends finished their putting, they were greeting by an Army Major who ran the golf course. I saw them pointing at me and lifting their legs as they described to the Major that I played a different kind of golf. They wanted me to demonstrate…
“They wanted me to demonstrate…”
Now I knew that I had not made one putt on any of the eight previous holes I putted but I took out my three beauties and focused on the lie. Remember this is not an 18” round, 18” high footbag golf hole. This is a standard ball golf hole. I determined about a one foot break to the left and downhill from my spot at about 30 feet above and to the right of the hole. I lined up my first attempt and it rolled with a perfect break down the hill and into the cup. They all clapped. I line up my second putt and rolled it to a near perfect putt missing off to the right by 6”. Big sigh from the crowd. I lined up my third putt and rolled another perfect break right into the cup to a rousing ovation. I do not tell this story often because when I do, it sounds to whacky to be believable. This story is true and is the one thing in footbag golf I remember best of all, even in the face of my last tournament where I made two “holes in one” in 18 holes at the Western Regionals at Stanford University.
