Gustaf Rosell ”Sorry won’t cut it”

Gustaf Rosell with ball body throws, bounce, and balance combinations. This zen master is throwing 7 up pirouettes from a cold start directly to a collect with the last ball landing in an elbow balance. His technique is not only high in a transitional sense of catching and throwing with precision but he has figured out how to make incredibly accurate bounce with balls off of his body. Sending them off different sides of the elbows, behind the neck, and performing elbow bounces synch with drops from the same side hand to backwards leg catches. He has really developed his own style of working where it looks like no one else!
