I think this whole art would be WAY cooler if we renamed everything after scateboarding terms.Think, which sounds cooler:I was doing a weave, then busted out a windmill, then quick switched into a reverse weave.ORI was doing a Kickflip McTwist, then busted into a Fingerflip Airwave, then quick switched into a 360 Shove-It Rewind.You KNOW I'm right

Then we could just switch into a Tony Hawk system of points scoring! (Laughing as I'm thinking of the next "Circles of Light" video with actual digital points values popping up for each trick...)

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

dont laugh NYC - I was thinking of doing this for some instructional vids I'm considering doing...not the scoring, but a read out which displays current move/combo on it...means the instructional video could be continuous movement, rather than breaking it all down and taking it out of context (ala, learning the moves, but not the dance).Josh

Points for difficulty of moves... lol, im down with that. They should make a poi videogame. Sorta like that Dance Dance revolution game but with like gloves that have sensors in them and shit. That would be quite interesting

Question: When doing the foutain, do you sort of turn to the sides when doing the chase parts or do you turn the plane of the poi and stay facing forward? I learned the former under the name of "the lunge", and the latter seems rather a lot harder.

I kinda taught myself the latter, although it can look a little uncoordinated at the moment;)

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Bumping this up purely to cause chaos.

Right?

anyone that wants to follow this, the most hackneyed of all discussions should have a quick peek here and if you really want to get into it go here and follow the links.

you'll be lucky to get glass to comment on this one on the board - i reckon its cos he doesn't really know either

i think we should change the name of this trick from fountain to the "greasy flamingo"

i waxed the weave and busted into a greasy flamingo which sent me flying.

NO!?

It will however make cats dizzy and cats throw up twice their bodyweight when dizzy.

a little birdy once told me the confusion was caused by the very same person that taught me the fountain...

bum, I was going o post a full answer to this that I'd written, but due to a crash last month I lost a lot of stuff from the last 6 months so I can't
Eeeeep
yet, I'll just go On a little recovery PM mission then get back to you in a day or 2.

In the meantime:
Originally a Fountain was: 10 little circles, 12 beats with NONE behind the head (no windmill).

So who accidently added a windmill and why? (clue: look for someone who has been around HOP a long time)

Fountain family: lots of moves
Lots of varents, to start with
add in windmill
add a watermill,
can run the big circle/great circle in the other direction !!!


Drew

And Stone, can you check your pm's. I need that phantom message back, I think its time to start that thread hey.

But does it have a waist wrap? And what the heck is a watermill?

And don't imply that I added the windmill... that was added way before I ever picked up any balls...

What were those original 10 beats?

SAVE US GLASS!

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

the original 12 beats
were ...
in order
1, then 2, 3, 4, 5,6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and finally 12 in that order.

Watermill if a windmill above your head is powered by wind,
then a watermill is. well try taking a leak while your spinning. between the legs wall plane 2 beat weave (like and inverted windmill of course.

Oh and as for lower and upper fountain, I never use the expressions my self. got a good idea, but I'm not sure. I'd go with whatever old clubswinging books say
