Posted:There's 2 things i can think of that your doing. Depending on how you're turning 360. Either you're just turning a 4-beat windmill by spinning horizontally. Or you're adding an extra beat at the end by your windmill by spinning 360 vertically (with your back tilted somewhat). If you're doing it that way, try spinning a couple of more times and keep your hands where they are. Supposedly you can do it forever hence an infinite windmill. Though you get quite dizzy.------------------[]Dhuong-Vu Truong==== []Dhunky ====[This message has been edited by phunky (edited 31 March 2002).]

Posted:I think I get it. Are you rotating kind of like how you would turn 180 from a windmill into a reverse windmill, but instead of stopping, you keep rotating and go back into a windmill, all while behind your back? Try doing it all in the front as well. It sounds like how you would turn a weave 180 into a rev. weave and then another 180 without stopping back into a weave. Am I right? If so , it is a pretty cool move. And Phunky, I think it is technically the same thing as an infinite corkscrew, just stood upright. Of course, you have to move your wrists for it because you are spinning in a perpindicular plane. Kind of like the difference between a 3 point split time bfly or a 360 split-time bfly, where you don't technically have to move you wrists as opposed to throwing a split-time bfly behind your head or back. You have to move your wrists to get it to work because you are shifting the plane from horizontal to vertical on a move that is horizontally oriented. Did that make any sense?------------------I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.~~~Dance as if noone is watching!~~~PLUR(RE) ---J---[This message has been edited by glowshow (edited 31 March 2002).]

And I should really read the posts a little more thoroughly. Sorry Phunky.

Posted:Not just Sheffield guys... I think that aerotech products are partially to blame though. I've got a hell of a bruise on my elbow from one of those staffs. And I can't for the life of me figure out how I got it.
