Speedcubing advice - a blog by Feliks Zemdegs

2016 Blog 2 - Lots of things!

Posted by Feliks Zemdegs on

Hi all, I thought I’d make a post and give a bit of an update, as over a third of 2016 has already passed us by, and plenty is going on. On the speedcube.com.au side, the team has developed speedcube lube – a variety of different lubricants, which I’ve had the opportunity to test out. They’re absolutely great, and I’ll have either a video or text review of them out shortly. They’ve also opened up a retail store in Blackburn North – with opening hours from 10am-2pm on weekdays. This is a huge step for an online store which was...

2016 Blog 1 - Mexico Trip

Posted by Feliks Zemdegs on

It seems like this is slowly transforming from a speedcubing blog into a travel blog. Nevertheless, let’s get to it. This chapter in the ongoing story of travelling and competing is about my trip to Mexico. I was contacted by three students from the Irapuato campus of the Tec de Monterrey, about 6 months ago, and they were interested in inviting me to speak at their school, as part of a project for their student group. Fernando, Vicente, and Emiliano turned what was a small idea into a massive congregation of Mexican speedcubers at their school, titled, “Live Your Dream...

December 2015 - Looking to 2016

Posted by Feliks Zemdegs on

Hi guys, For the final blog this year, I thought I’d write about what I’m looking forward to in 2016 in cubing. Just a heads up, I won't be doing the monthly blog on here next year, but don't worry! There'll be other content up here from time to time, and I intend to continue the personal-type blogs in some capacity.   The “majors” I’m an avid follower of golf, and also follow tennis a little bit, and so I see the structure of speedcubing tournaments as somewhat similar, in that there are many competitions throughout each year, but there are...

November 2015 - How to start speedcubing?

Posted by Feliks Zemdegs on

So you've got a Rubik's cube, and you've either learned how to solve it, or want to learn. Speedcubing is a great hobby for anyone, it is challenging, interesting, and the great thing about it is that you can literally take a cube anywhere you like and it will be a constant source of entertainment. It can be pretty addicting though - don't say I didn’t warn you. And despite what you may think, it’s a very accessible hobby as well, you don’t have to be a genius to be able to solve the cube, you just need good instruction,...

October 2015 - China!

Posted by Feliks Zemdegs on

As most of you probably know by now, I went to China for 10 days to compete in the Chinese Championship, along with a little bit of tourism. Having never been to China before, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. If the procedure for getting a visa was anything to go by, I expected it to be somewhat intimidating. Hence, I was very surprised at being able to breeze through immigration on arrival in Guangzhou, and generally how safe I felt throughout the entire trip. We were picked up at the airport on Friday the 25th of September by...
