Posted:Having been dragged down to the beach last weekend, I had no idea that It would be such a laugh. I took my poi and just spent the day messing about. I don't know quite what makes sipnning on the beach such fun, but it sure beats spinning at home! I also learnt loads of new moves. Wahey!

Posted:I like spinning on a beach...with no shoes on (thats me with no shoes on, not the beach), spinning fire especially ...feeling the sand squidge between your toes (then realising that sand shouldnt squidge, looking down and realising you stepped bare footed in dog shit...bloody british beaches!)

Posted:Some of the most fun I've had spinning ever has been on beaches. Preferably empty, sandy beaches for running around on, and at low tide so there's lots of lovely wet sand, and sunset for best light and temperature. CD player set so I can hear the music and the waves. And in New Zealand.

Posted:pebble beaches are good - they don't hide in your shoes and emerge in vast volume when you take your shoes off at home like sand...

i think it's a space thing as to why beaches are good

much like why all the space on the common is good, that and the rustling of trees and life around you (much as the beach has the waves)


I can SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Posted:Yay! just got my pics developed of me spinning on the beach under the full moon! One of the reasons it's good to spin on the beach is that should you catch fire you're right next to a shedload of ocean to extinguish any naughty flames!

Posted:Shibaki, go spin on some kind of pavement. Youll learn to spin with shoes real fast, or your fit will be in a fine mess.

Ive never spun at the beach before but it sounds like something that I need to do.

Posted:*narrows eyes* did someone put down pebble beaches! i love living near it! no sand in your pants, no sand in your shoes,you can make a vaugley sturdy standing point and best of all when it all gets too much you can pick em up and spin them accross the waves. im not putting down sandy beaches mind... its just all in the moment.

Posted:i spin almost every night, if i can, usually after work at 3am-5am, but i go to a festival called " LUCY IN THE SKY, ON THE 4TH OF JULY " and i spin on a pond beach, on top of a mountain in NY. also, i go to maine for 2 weeks every year, and we got a cabin on another pond, and we got a raft about 6' X 6', and i go out there at night, and everyone says that the reflection of the fire poi in the water, with the fire poi on top, is the kewlest they have seen, but i never get to see it because i am doing it, and i am the only one in my family, and friends that can do it, but i now have video footage, so, i guess the point is, it don't matter where poi, just poi!

ps: i do so love the sand tho

Posted:I fell in love with firedancing on the beach in costa rica
i had the most freedom there
dancing naked, half in the ocean with phosphoresect bacteria on the waves, a full open beach stage and the stars overhead
now that is paradise

now back home in toronto
I spin on the shores at out door music festivals and various beach gatherings
great freedom and that is what it is all about for me!!
try it naked on the beach and you will feel it too
