Posted:What move does he do with four in hand? I do the butterfly, though I haven't tried it with fire yet. Only have one set of poi.

Posted:4 poi ay ive only heard rumors of that i think it would be really cool to see and the story bout the guy doing weave with his feet on a skate board he has to be sittin down.. i just don't see that possible standing up although it would be extremely awesome.. so I'm all for HOP doing an expos on him... i also think they should update the lessons they have now..

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potato's.

Posted:er ... thanks. although i'm not on col5 yet, i have
merely sent in an entry. we don't find out for
another week or so apparantly.

as regards four poi tricks the ones that i do are
with a one-handed butterfly in both hands. then
i do tricks like the wiggle and guy's gyroscope.

and no it isn't two meteors because i'm using
poi and they are not connected. but barring throws
with just one of the poi, the tricks are pretty much
the same.

and the six poi on the skateboard involves lying down.

Posted:ah, four poi, ive seen three people doing four poi (one handed butterfly in each hand) all on one stage, pretty incredable, they were a maori dance/performance trope, very cool, they started out with just one set, got one handed butterfly going and then pulled out another set, and got one handed going with those as well, sweet! eek

if you think that our kiss was all in the lips, come on you got it all wrong man, and if you think that our dance was all in the hips then, oh well, do the twist -The White Stripes

Posted:er ... i love you to jake. but i only have the one short video
that i've done and i wasn't aware that you had a copy of it.
however, if i don't make it on to col5 the lovely people at
www.soton-firespinning.co.uk have said they will host it for
me.

and if anyone can suggest a good way of keeping the
wheels on a skateboard alight i would be very interested.
but since the board is mostly wood and plastic it might be
a bad idea.

we had two kids on stage, at camp, each doing four fire poi
which looked very cool.
