Welcome HaZZa..youll love the board the more your on it.I think this is why alot of people pick up the basics so fast, because when they first start, they spin for hours multiple times a week because they are so excited. As you can imagine, there have been a billion posts on all sorts of subjects. Tips, techniques, how to hold the straps, ect..Do a search on any question you have and youll hit gold with tons of info. BUT, if youre like me, you like that personal response. You can email me directly if you want, and ill help as much as i can. New spinners renew my hype for spinning. if you have single looped straps, hold up your 2 fingers like youre making a peace sign. put the loop over the 2 fingers with the string/chain hanging in front of your palm. Now pull the stringback up between your fingers. Yo can do this on your middle 2 fingers as well. I personally use the first 2, but its all up to what is comfortable for you.have funSuper'------------------"When a Man Lies He Murders Some Part of the World These Are the PaleDeaths Which Men Miscall Their Lives All this I Cannot Bear to Witness Any Longer Cannot the Kingdom of Salvation Take Me Home"

Hey Hazza...welcome.. I've only been here a little while too, and I did the same thing when I joined..have fun around here.. and DO use that search thing, people tend to get their feathers ruffled when you ask questions that have already been answered..allthough, the personal response IS nice..
