Posted:www.bouncepage.com for all things that go boing!

www.mediacircus.biz - this is good for juggling books and videos. Bouncing in Paris is available here and is well worth buying if you interested in bouncing. I watched it and was inspired to start bouncing as a result.

I think if you go from www.jugglingdb.com try the video section - they should have some.

Also jugglewiki on the same site, has some bounce animations.

Posted:I would recomment oddballs - avaialable from the shop of the same name. they have a good bounce, last a long time and are v. cheap - i think about 3-4 per ball.

The more expensive option is to get some silicones, which are about 20-30 per ball. They have a great bounce and are very smooth to juggle but they lose their bouncy quality after a few years.

Posted:If you're too poor for silicone (I know I am) lacrosse balls are a really nice cheap option. Raquet balls do alright, but they're not as nice since they're a bit too light.

Posted:a marble slab is your ideal.



paving stones will do.



it may sound morbid but the best suggestion i've heard is to go to funeral directors and ask if they have any tombstones that they do not need (ones they have made mistakes in the engraving or have chipped etc).



and if you're bounce juggling in a kitchen, make sure all breakables are well out of the way!



and you need to get hold of this dvd (cos its just about the best juggling video ever smile): bip.

Posted:haha i had it in my hand on Tuesday but put it back. Ive seen it before and yes it is very good (will hopefully get it eventually!) Alot of people seem to rate it very highly.

Do you know of any other dvds that are a bit more basic? xxx

Posted:there's the big bouncing show made by Peapot - i've only seend half of it, but it's good. The second half of bouncing in paris has a workshoppy - type thing, which goes through loads of tricks from 3b to 7ball.

Other than that i think if you go to the bouncepage there are some videos featured there, and there *might* be a basic bouncing video in oddballs, but it *could* be very basic!!

Good luck

Posted:bip is the sh!ts i say - the second half of the dvd covers all the basics you will need shown normally and in slow-mo and the first half has inspiration pouring out.

will - i didn't appreciate the big bouncer nearly as much as bip (nor do i rate it like i do most of the other peapot vids).

still, if you're after a bouncing video collection, it should be in there i guess.

and i had a quick go last night and its suprising how much 3b active bouncing is like overhead innit - i think you're right that there's tonnes of scope there will.

maybe miss out the toss bit and do bounced tricks then big forced bounces to flash the balls up to above the head...

damn i wish i had more time.

good luck vix ::
