Before we get to it – a historical interlude:
In the 1900s, college students in Connecticut started flinging around empty pie tins and soon enough Frisbee was born, named after the Frisbie Baking Company. Walter Morrison of Los Angeles conceived of the first plastic frisbee in 1948, and the rest is history.
How To — Backhand Throw
1. Place your thumb on top of the disc, letting your pointer and middle fingers sit underneath, the middle finger pushing against the inside of the rim. Let your ring and pinky fingers sit on the outside of the rim.
2. Stand with your hips facing the target and step slightly out (not forward) with the foot opposite your dominant hand.
3. While stepping, bend your wrist and elbow back, then flick both forward in a fluid motion, as if you’re skipping a stone.
How To — Pancake Catch
1. Extend your arms in front of you, keeping a bend in the elbows for a little give.
2. Catch the frisbee by clapping your palms together on either side of the disc.
Toss, catch, leap, repeat.
