Posted:I really enjoyed that, thanks for sharing smile

The video is a little dark, but the quality of the spinning and the editing of the video itself were great- you have a natural grace that suits fire spinning. I look forward to more smile

Posted:Nice spinning, enjoyable watch smile.

I fully agree with chutney about it being too dark. It's always a bit distracting when the only light is that of the poi flame. Also, on the crit level, those throws broke the flow quite a bit. The problem, I think, is that the poi flame itself didn't move much, so what I saw was the arm jerk quickly, then the poi shoot back into circular movement. Unfortunately, I can't think of much of a suggestion for a remedy at this point.

On the admiration level, I really enjoyed the long-arm spinning and that long-arm butterfly (at about 1:40) of yours caused a smile to break out on my face with an "oooh pretty smile".

Wonderful spinning, keep going and show us more!

Definition of poi- A Hawaiian food made from the tuber of the taro that is cooked, pounded to a paste, and fermented.

You have a beautiful style - a lot of the moves you do so gracefully took me YEARS to make look that pretty! ubbrollsmile I particularly like the one poi stuff at the beginning leading into the nice stalls etc........

And the soundtrack.

And the symmetry of your patterns - lovely ubblove

And the longarm stuff then stall at about 1.35 biggrin

Your isolations and stalls are sweet all the way though too.....

Throws with fire - I wish I could do those!

It's the perfect length too - shows just enough to keep you excited but not get tired of watching - excellent and wonderful.

A bit more lighting next time?

Posted:thank you all so much for watching...!!! biggrin
Thank you also for taking some time to post... i'll be more careful about the damn light next time.

Suibom -> Yes, throws are prettier with socks, i guess... then again it would maybe have been better with a little more light (would've seen the chains..)

Im very flattered to have such a good feedback from all u guys, really...
I'm off to some harsh practice wink

Thanx again, alot ubblove ubbrollsmile

yes, six months, and its insane how much you've improved since then, its exponential, its phenomenal, its not right. such progress is criminal and must be stopped, as i live in paris i will execute the executive decision to break a few fingers to give others the time to keep up wink

and happy new year
