Gaston


Gaston: 522

Gaston is a simple enough trick to describe in words: crossed arm reverse cascade, throwing under-the-arm 2ís with the caught balls. Youíd probably like more direction:

Version 1.0
This teaches you to do a crossed arm reverse cascade. All throws are under-the-arm, and all catches are under-the-arm. Begin with two balls in your RH and one in your LH, arms crossed L over R.
1) Throw the ball in your RH as a high throw (to 5 height) arcing to the other side of the pattern.
2) Swing your RH over your LH.
3) Throw the ball in your LH as a 5, going to the right (outside) of the ball thatís already in the air. Catch the ball coming down.
4) Do it back on the other side.

Now that you can theoretically juggle a crossed arm reverse cascade, youíre ready for the one modification that makes it Gaston.

Version 2.0
Begin with two balls in your RH and one in your LH, arms crossed L over R.
1) Throw the ball in your RH as a 5.
2) Throw the ball thatís left in your RH as a short straight up throw (sitewapically, itís a thrown 2).
3) Swing your RH over your LH and catch the ball you just threw.
4) Throw the ball in your LH as a 5, going to the outside of the ball thatís already in the air, and catch the ball coming down.

Now for the other side:
5) Throw a quick LH straight up throw with the ball you just caught.
6) Swing your LH over your RH and catch it.

You can examine the video here. Gaston is a fun trick to juggle, with the added benefit that it looks good (if only Eat-the-Apple was the same way).
