Austrian Whip Cracking Contest

I have no clue what they’re saying, but I like the sound they’re making!

Sure, the cracks aren’t as elaborate as in Australian style whip cracking, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I think the differences in whip cracking  between cultures are something that ought to be recognized and celebrated even though one style may be more elaborate than others.

[Edit: One of my Facebook page members posted this link for some background on what this is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aperschnalzen]


I would love to get a line up of guys like this using 12ft cow whips. The sound would be deafening!

Thanks goes out to Pete Gamble of Pic-N-Mix Circus for finding this.
