Posted:I just nailed the reverse mexican wave last night and found out that it looks quite good if you go into it by doing the reverse butterfly (or giant) and go into it but i cannot get out of it very stylishly. I'm not the best at this yet (by far) but any advice or ideas would be most highly appreciated.
Don't eat bats.
OH yeah can anyone help me on behind the back moves as on any down stroke i just seem to clip my shoes or trouser leg and i've got a funny feeling this isn't great if i'm using fire poi. P.s I have no intentions to wear tight trousers so don't even think about suggesting it. Any other hints would be good though .

Posted:Rev. Mex. Wave I find is really pretty when you jump and spin with it, though every 180 degrees will change it forward/reverse, but it looks outstanding. Just alternate which hand is in front and back while you're airborne and it should go smoothly.
I personally love the mexican weave but I like it even more in horizontal. And you can get really stylishly out of this... I just switch into a horizontal butterfly for one beat, then wrap both chains around my neck to come in a forward butterfly, or wrap just one chain to come out in a corkscrew.
