Posted:I love my hoops as much as I love poi and staff and I noticed there was a few other hooping hoppers out there. So I thought HOP needed a hooping thread for us to chat about tricks and share our love for hoops. ubblove
I have been hooping for quite awhile now and have mastered quite a few tricks but I still havn't figured how to flick it up off the ground and move it up my legs. I can get it from my knees up but I saw this chic at the a circus and she had the hoops all on the ground and was bringing them up her legs one by one. It looked awesome.
I've got an idea of what I gotta do but havn't quite got it. I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips on this?
Thanks

Happy Hooping! ubbrollsmile

Posted:They are the directions i'm going to use when i attempt making a colapsable hoop but the joiners that i have found so far in shops near me are rubbish so i think i'll have to make another trek to the plumbers merchants. Multiple joiners shouldn't be a problem.

The difficulty is getting it to fit together nice and tight to hoop with but then be easy to take apart

Molly i love your avatar!

Posted:Jason (of that link fame) sands down one side of the ridged connector and has several connectors evenly spaced around the hoop. The whole thing is kept together with a bungee cord - sort of like tent poles I suppose.

I've also seen a nifty hoop with just one connector (also half sanded down) and a velcro strip to hold it together. The hoop can coil up tightly for travelling smile

The only problem is that the join can pinch a little if it comes open whilst hooping. A little bit of tape could fix that though.

Thanks star! She is a very clever mole isn't she? biggrin NYC took that picture of molly hooping. One small finger hoop for us is a great hoopyhoop for a little mole, though she did do rather well with your pink one. I think fingerhooping looks better in the dark though smile

Star if you have multiple joiners will that mess with the weighting?



For some reason, it isn't that big of a deal if ahoop is slightly misweighted. Or even radically misweighted actually. Dunno why. I certanly wouldn't worry about the weight of connectors.

i've been trying wierd things with the hoop spinning vertically whilst you lean back or forwards.

Is it possible to do this without jumping up and down stupidly!?!?!

Start leaning back. Once the hoop is spinning, turn around and lean forwards then turn around again and lean backwards again. Does that make sense?
I've managed to get it to work but its not smooth yet.
I tried doing it around my neck but that ended painfully!

True, I think there are some more bounce friendly tunes. That Reggae stuff that was playing at PLAY the first night was certainly bouncy. biggrin

Posted:Pass the Hoop NYC. I'm in work and feeling fed up and a bit of wiggling would make me feel OH so much better. I have infected my Co workers with the hoop bug though. 4 of them have bought hoops off me and they are all very excited about getting to wiggle. So much so I got told off by one of my bosses for distracting them from their work with such exciting talk ubblol

Only with the "this hoop sucks it's way to small to hoop" hoop but I suppose that is good practice for me biggrin

I was worried for a while that I'd have to pick up poi again if I wanted indoor playing eek wink

Hoop passing sounds dull.
Can't we have a fab new word like hoopassing?
Ah the all en-hoopassing love of the wiggle ubblove

Posted:I hooped in the park last night with my niece and 4 little boys came along and asked to have a go. They were quite good for ones so small. One of them had to be less than 3 foot tall and he used my big black fluffy hoop. Before Hannah and I gave up and went home for a cup of tea (about 2 hours later) we had gathered even more kids who wanted a go. I think next time I better take a few dozen spare ones ubblol

The ubblove of the wiggle is spreading. I'm infecting the young with it so they can return home and infect their parents ubblol

I'm trying to do a deal with parcel force but if that turns out too costly I'll try someone else. Other than that.. well I have no idea ubblol I will get hoops to people somehow biggrin The Love of the Hoop must be spread!

Posted:Gnor funny you should say that but... yes paypal is in the process of being set up as are my pages on www.hyperloop.co.uk The only reason mine aren't up yet is because I'm slack and my computer isn't playing fair.

I've found someone that might be able to print my Creatures onto t-shirts too.... I'm going to get him to print me some trial ones to see the quality and then if they are good I'm going to be offering those for sale too biggrin

NYC the international postal hoop love might not involve actual hoops, as the postage my come to more than the hoops are worth ubblol It might just have to be Hoop love in the form of Faery dust and pictures of people enjoying hooping biggrin

ubblove the wiggle!
