Flying Clipper is happy to be a part of footbag history.

We pioneered so many styles of footbag along the years here at Flying Clipper. We think this new project by John Stalberger on Kickstarter is fantastic because the history of footbag is so rich with so many stories of good friends.

We’re happy to be a part of that history and happy to support this Kickstarter campaign to see the release of the book about the history of Footbag aka Hacky Sack. The book is called “Hack the Sack.” It will be once it gets funded that is! Go check it out now and help out!

And as a part of telling that story, John is talking on Sunday’s about the history of the sport of footbag on Blog Talk Radio. This is a great service and we’re so stoked to see John telling his stories in a way that you can listen in anytime you like for years to come.

Get a custom footbag limited only to project backers at the $30 level, as well as the book of course! You can also get a signed footbag and book for $70! Many other reward levels available, even for $5, go check it out!

Here we have the two latest recipients of the Dirtbag Footbags which are being used to help with education programs in Chile.

Chile Emerson Jefferson Chile kids

 

The two children are named Emerson and Jefferson. They stop by the plaza in the Torres de Tajamar every now and then. Their father works in one of the buildings, so at times they come out and play. This weekend they decided to swap the football for the footbag.

Emerson showed some great control, particularly considering he is only seven years old. The younger Jefferson, who is only four, was able to kick the bag, but had a lot more fun balancing the bag on his head.

Despite their young age, both children showed a great attitude towards the sport and were improving within a short time.

The video below shows Daniel Boyle showing a few tricks to his new followers.

Check out our very first customer review of this brand new product in our juggle catalog!

A great juggling bag development  A great juggling bag development

A great bag that works very well for me. just the right size for working on 5 or 6. Very soft on the hands but maintains that round look in the air due to the 14 panel design. surprisingly easy on the hands compared to all other props I have tried. Since the outside of the bag is soft some slight rub collisions can be recovered without losing a pattern completely. I strongly recommend this bag. Shawn S — Shawn S

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.

Daniel Boyle was joined by a live band in Santiago.

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.
