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:BOO!

Molly's firehoop video is too large to post on HoP. I knew I should have broken it up into segments. I'll tape a shorter one on Monday. Or maybe during Uberchaos.

Oh, and I've been selling the hoops at 20 Quid which I'm somehow sure has been way less than time, effort, and original cost. But I guess I'm more in for the hoop love than the money.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Falmouth was hooptastic. ubblol

I am so addicted to hooping. I'm off down the hardware store this week to get some stuff to build a couple of hoops, one for practise and one for fire.

The contact staff/hooping video will be released soon, as soon as I've learned more than 3 tricks. biggrin

Posted:I made lots of people hoop in the dark around midnight at Womad this year. I think they just did it because they were in the tents around me and were worried that if they refused I might do something bad to them....... I got the impression they thought I was a dangerous Nutter....... I have no idea why they thought that though...... I was uber nice to everyone biggrin

Posted:Star hun when you hoop with that does the fluffy material get all twisted up or is it glued to the tube? I was thinking of doing exactly the same thing but never got around to making one or getting past where to put the seam so that it doesn't make a bump in the hoop.
