Heyla,I'm new to this forum, so I figured an introduction was a good place to start.I am Ashia BlackHawk. I belong to a group called the HFS, more specifically the San Antonio Texas chapter. Several other HFSers have started doing Poi, and as a result my mom and I have gotten into it. Any suggestions for begginers?Flames and Pyre,Burn Ever Higher.Ashia BlackHawk

Hello!I'm also a relative newbie here..all I can suggest is to do it all the time, because it's so fun, and it will only increase your skill level, which makes it even more fun!

Welcome, I am a super newbie too.I am going to the park everynight for an hour or two and practicing with my friend. Unfortunately she gets tired after 5 minutes and ends up sitting and watching me! haha.. practice, and trade tricks with people when you find them. I also bring them to every rave or festival I can, there are always loads of spinners there with different skill levels.------------------DTKB :}

I've found this site to have good instructional information. Also just watch other spinners. I've found most to be quite friendly and helpfull (they probably like to watch people spin as much as I do).All it takes is practice and hard work.
