Default Throwing rollers in the wind!

http://heavydisc.blogspot.com/2013/1...s-in-wind.html

Okay so this isn't really a technique thread... just windy as hell today so I had a little fun (video in the link).

I think I'd take rain over wind. Hope it's sunny and calm where you're at.

Old beat Roc. Really beat... like it lost a fight with a lawn mower. Still rolls true in the wind though!

Did you even throw the disc? It looks like you drop it and it rolls.

It's a fine point you make. I might have foot faulted as well. It could have been ruled a drop and not a throw, but lucky for me this wasn't a sanctioned event.

I thought you were joking... Yes, I did just literally hold the disc upright on the ground and it took off.
