#795 The Flying Saucer Frisbee Toss

Cover your throat!

There are a few types of Frisbee tosses out there:

1. The Sideways Roller. Even the best frisbee tossers can’t avoid the occasional Sideways Roller. This is when the frisbee hits the ground almost immediately, and then rolls away in a sharp, spinning circle. For some extra points, it’s always fun to chase it around and around and then half-heartedly give up and wait to see where it stops.

2. The Boomerang. Oops, too high, way up in the wind there. Careful though, that thing’s coming back, straight at your throat.

3. The Fancy Fudge Up. After a few tosses, someone might get cocky and attempt a novelty forehand throw or under-the-leg toss. These usually end up flying way off into the distance and then rolling into the sewer. Don’t get too cute out there.

4. The Laser. A classic sharp, shooting toss right at the chest of your partner. They can usually catch it without moving an inch, but might jam a finger or two in the process.

5. The Flying Saucer. And lastly, the highlight of the day, everybody. It’s gotta be that Flying Saucer. A nice, airy toss that just seems to pause in mid-air and slowly hover down into your waiting hands, like a spinning plastic angel from heaven.

  1. A good friend of mine used to be in frisbee competitions. He has life trophies and everything. (As a side note, its really weird when people have trophies for things most people just do for fun. Like if you had a hula-hoop trophy. Or if the guy from Priceline had a Monopoly trophy or something).

    At any rate, we used to go up to his cottage, and I’d swim out to a small 6’x6′ raft a couple hundred feet in the water, and he’d stand on shore, and would be able to throw frisbee after frisbee, right to the raft. It was remarkable. The problem was, I couldn’t really get them back to him, so he’d usually have about 10 frisbees, throw them all, and then I’d have to swim most of them back to shore.. I am not awesome with frisbees.

    1. Weird trophies rule! My daughter went on a little ski trip with some relatives this year, and a couple days later, she got a ski trophy in the mail, with her name, following the inscription “Great Air” and the date of said achieving of the great air. She thought that was pretty awesome.

  2. The forehand throw is really accurate when you get good at it. I’m much better forehand than backhand.

    Plus, you look AWESOME! doing it.

  3. yes, this throw is definitely the best. But no mention of the one where you do it facing sideways??? lets just say, it slices through the air toward the other person like a circular saw XP

  4. How cool that my Friz-a-bee story is featured here in a link. Thanks, and check out my website for some fresh news from the Rocky Mountains. Peace, out!

  5. I’ve played so much frisbee this summer thanks to my summer job. We play on our breaks all the time. I’ve seen all five of these throws and more. Our best FFUs have been when it went sailing over a fence and landed in a construction zone never to be seen again and when it (repeatedly) landed in poison ivy. And one kid dove straight in time after time to retrieve it. Poor guy.

  9. Oh yea, everyone can do backhand because it’s the ‘typical’ frisbee throw. But to the people who can do forehands/flicks and hammers and scoobers, well that’s just awesome. I can’t do a scoober but I can do the others :)
