In this video I talk about the basics of a flat nail delay and a rim delay.
In Freestyle Frisbee, a Delay is when the Frisbee is kept spinning on one’s finger nail. This can be done either in the center of the Frisbee on in the rim of the Frisbee.
Most people want to learn the Center Delay immediately. However, it can take many hours of practice to get it down.
The way I learned was by starting with the Rim Delay. This kept me from getting frustrated by not mastering the Center Delay right away. I learned to pass the disc under my legs and behind my back, all with a rim delay.
Over time, I began to understand how the disc progressed naturally in a circle and how to control it better. And then, one day I could keep it in the center.
So, don’t overlook the rim delay as you’re learning new tricks.
