HOWDY ALL!!
ive been doing this move and ive called it the tornado. the discription goes like this:
normal 3 beat fountain in front of you and on your right side switch it around to behind the back fountain. which then goes behind you from left to right then on your right side from behind your back to in front again.
this goes round and round and looks quite good i can imagine.
are others able to do this??? and does it have another name ??
just wondering

Umm, your description is a bit vague.
sorry, I don't understand
I don't think you mean fobut untain the same way that we normally mean fountain round here.

Can you have another go with more detail please.

Weird, I've been working a wicked set of concepts for combos called tornado's too at the moment.

cheers

it's continuous behind the back weave turn in the wall plane. no?

Tis a good move. Related is this: when you're doing the btb weave on wall plane and the poi are ni front of you, turn your body and keep the poi spinning in the same place. You can do a 360 turn with your body.

yeah howdy all ... im very new to homeofpoi ... this is my first posting im not too farmiliar with all your terms. i assume 3 beat weave is 3 beat weave everywhere. and backwards 3bw is the same but spinning backwards.
to me fountain is when you join the two together from forwards to your left into forwards to your right and back again and so forth.
the TORNADO is what i call when you do this from left to right in front of you and then from your right side you flick it behind your back. here you do another semi rotation behind your back and flick it round in front of you.
it is pretty much doing a circle of fountain around you. if only i could draw a diagram or even show you.
ive probably confused you but if you know what i mean give it a go.

poi on
