Posted:Well I finally got to spin fire and it ROCKED!!

I've had a set of Kevlar fire poi for almost 2 weeks now and haven't had the chance to light them and finally got the chance to. (read: it hasn't rained in two days)

I was not expecting the sound. I knew that they made noise but, WOW, they are loud. I did a few basic moves, I didn't want to attempt anything to drastic. All I could think of was hitting myself and totally making an ass out of myself.

I would like to say that all the advice that I have gotten from everyone here has helped immensely.

Now I'm totally hooked even more than I was before.


Blessings to all,
Peter

Posted:The sound is beautiful. I have heard it described as being cocooned. You are surrounded by this rushing crackling air.

Congratulations on your first fire experience


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Congratulations! I was the same way my first time. Just stuck to what I know and gradually working up to doing all the things I can also do unlit, lit. The sound is very cool, one of my favorite things about it.

Posted:The one thing that I was told was that I lean slightly forward when spinning and the torches come VERY close to hitting me in the head when dong a few moves. I guess it's time to relearn some moves.
Did anyone else have to change how they did things to correct mistakes in technique so that they didn't light themselves on fire?

Can't wait till this weekend to play more. I'm even more addicted now than when I first tried tennis ball poi.

Another funny thing is that I noticed is, that you can feel the heat move arround your body and it gives you a vague notice of where the poi are while your spinning.


Blessings to all,
