Beginner Tip

Learn how to control your angles, release point, height and power. Once you feel comfortable executing those with your swing, see how the fluctuation of these variables affects the flight of the discs that you throw. Ideally this analysis can be done with minimal wind & elevation change and as comfort with your execution grows, begin to include these "course" variables in your strategy. The bottom line is that once you can begin envisioning the flight of the discs before you throw with all variables in mind - measuring your execution and closing the gap between envisioned and actual throw is going to be how to get better most quickly.

From a holistic standpoint - be confident, take in your beautiful surroundings, embrace our eclectic community and HAVE FUN! We are all out there to express ourselves kinesthetically, enjoy the journey and take in the moment

Most Memorable Moment

Shooting a 1066-rated final round at the New Years Classic in Oakland, CA to come back from four strokes down, force a playoff and take down my first MPO win on camera.

In The Bag

Drivers

Dynamic Discs Lucid Enforcer

My go to overstable, fast driver that I can depend on to stable out at the end of the flight.

Dynamic Discs Fuzion Defender

When I am confident in my angles and am looking for more distance/hyzerflip in a max distance throw.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Raider

The perfect stability for the forehand I've developed coming from a former Ultimate Frisbee background, requiring less stability.

Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Felon

Shorter forehands that require a driver/backhands that need a medium distance between Explorers and 12/13 speed drivers & LucidX Felon for a disc that will never flip or requires a spike hyzer.

Latitude 64 Opto-X Explorer

OptoX/Metallic/Opto for varying stabilities within shots requiring a fairway driver.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Evader

Loving this proto! Still figuring out where it fits in with my Explorers.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Vandal

Understable/turnover shots that require a driver and more understability than my Explorers.

Latitude 64 Opto Fury

Rollers.

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Lucid Justice

Pure utility disc, will only pull it out if I need a RIDICULOUSLY stable short distance throw/extreme headwinds.

Dynamic Discs Prime Verdict

My go to approach disc for anything that requires a stable finish. LucidX for a super reliable stable finish, Prime Verdict for straight shots that require stability at the end of flight.

Westside Discs VIP Bard

A midrange that has what I like to think of as torque resistant stability - it'll maintain the angle you put it on, but the angle will not change drastically through its flight, even as it reaches slow speed, in comparison to a Justice/Verdict.

Westside Discs VIP Gatekeeper

Reliable true straight to slightly overstable midrange.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Bounty

Understable mid-range shots for backhands.

Putters

Latitude 64 Zero Hard Dagger

Putting putters!

Latitude 64 Opto-X Pure

Go to putter for backhand approaches - OptoX/Medium based on conditions and desired flight path.
