Jesse Tomaino - Portland, OR
Beginner TipHave fun! We all work hard trying to improve our game but make sure to take the time to enjoy being outside and watching discs fly. Learn angle control by sticking to understable discs like Hatchets and Underworlds at first. And practice putting! Even a few minutes a day can really help.
Most Memorable MomentThrowing for a CTP off of a 400 foot tall ski jump at Hilltop DGC in Anchorage, Alaska.
Disc Golf GoalsI want to help grow the Oregon disc golf community by running bigger and better events and getting more courses in the ground. Being there for my wife and teammate, Madison, while she travels to play DGPT events and runs women’s events locally. Continuing to make our brick and mortar store, All Day Disc Golf, a hub of Portland disc golf. And to grab a few wins a year against a strong local MP40 field made up of some of my best friends, who I’m stoked to play with every couple of weeks!
In The Bag
Westside Discs Tournament World
I carry Tournament and Hybrid plastic Worlds. My Worlds fly almost as far as my Graces but are more reliably overstable--they still flip to flat and glide but I can count on a strong finish at the end. I use the less stable TP World for forehands, forced anny backhands that need to fight out at the end, and max distance rollers.
Dynamic Discs Fuzion Vandal
The Vandal does a lot for me: turnovers, big hyzer flips, even rollers that need to move right in a hurry. I love getting really familiar with a beat in disc and just knowing exactly how hard I have to hit it to get it to change angle. It allows me to work it on so many different lines.
Westside Discs Tournament Stag
I carry Hybrid and Tournament Stags. By far my favorite discs to throw! If I'm in the woods trying to hit gaps I'm probably throwing Stags. I carry two or three depending on the course and with various plastics and levels of wear I have all the angles covered--especially dead straight!
Dynamic Discs Prime Moonshine Culprit (Lucid pictured)
The Culprit hits all the same lines that I threw a Harp for but it's shallower and a bit more overstable. For forehands it comes off my finger easier for a smooth release. I have also bagged the Chris Clemons premium Hybrid run and love those as well but am sticking with the base plastic through the wet PNW winter.
