Posted:I've seen the dip-staff-light-spin-and-chuck-in-the-air-to-make-a-big-flare trick and was wondering if there was anything similar with poi.

In an effort not to get Durbs'd to death I did actually search for ' "spin off" poi ' but that just bought up various random unrelated threads. biggrin

Posted:If you spin around and drag your poi along the floor in a big circle, you get streaks of fire and if you're on the right ground it'll sometimes leave a ring of fire around you whilst you spin.

Of course, dragging your poi along concrete is not very advisable.

Posted:yeah circle burnoffs are better, I tend to get bits of burning parrafin in the eye when i do the whip one.

watch what sort of gtound your on tho, wet concrete and parrafin make for a very slippery combination.

Posted:I tried the ground one on grass. Put my poi out frown but then, it had been burning for a bit so most of the excess had probably already gone

Posted:my favorite poi burn off is as follows: with very wet poi start doing a butterfly infront of you, add in a few quick mexican waves, transition to a 3bt weave, and after a few beats stall the poi so they hit the ground.

huge ring of fire *poof*

and now you're in a reverse 5bt weave or something ;]

i've seen people do sidewalks by just spinning in plane and walking backwards before they let the coleman's go pooof, and these look great too.

basically, just drip fuel onto the ground and light it. =]


Lights dancing off my skin as chains wrap round it.
Pain is in a little box and I'm so glad I found it.

Posted:Can you point me to a (small, I have a crappy connection) video of this one please? Do you do all this and then light and stall or do you do all that lit? I take it this wont work on grass?

Posted:hey Dom, swing round sometime and we can go through a few burn offs if you want? Haven't you seen us do them before? I wouldn't recommend the ground circle one on grass, especially if it's wet. Only if it's short and dry but then again how often is that in the UK?! umm

If you pop round we'll put COL5 on, there's a burn off in virtually every other clip on there and one really nice one where a guy ( can't remember which) makes a fire circle and then carves a straight oad through the middle of it, looks awesome biggrin

Posted:spinning the poi backwards, lift you foot of the ground and just gently clip the poi as it passes on the bottom of you r shoe... instant fire ball as the poi spins off in circle, then swap feet and side and do the same ... its hard to get every one or other one consistanly and it makes you shoes slippery... great on sand or dusty stuff though and you get great burn offssssss ............

circles on the ground and dry grass is excelent... although it can be an eye brow singer if your too close...

its all about the fun fun fun fun and more fun...

Posted:Bumping this.

I've tried a few of these and I've not had much luck with the fuel I'm using, what's everyone else got?

And of course, if anyone else has any ideas...
