Posted:Check out the "Poi Moves" and there should be some help for that issue. If you search that forum and can't find a thread to give you some advice then feel free to make one, or post in a thread that seems kinda relevant.

There is no such thing as spinning too much...

Ever.

biggrin


After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

Try lighter poi..

Poi with tails..

Flags ubblove

Maybe even slow music..

A teacher chanting "slllooowwwww down" wink



When you said spin too much I figured there were people saying put down those poi and come back to us.. wink

Posted:I've spun too much before. When I first used my poi my fingers semi blistered it was more of a red rash on the inside of my fingers. Last night i spun for about half an hour in the cold and now i have 4 chubby fingers. Or at least they feel chubby.

Is there such a thing as spinning to much???





My uncle Trevor used to work as a cleaner of those giant high-speed centrifuges used in the chemical industry- up to the sad day when one was accidently switched on while he was still inside.

If he'd survived the incident, I'm fairly sure that he would have been of the opinion that-

yes, there is such a thing as spinning too much.

Posted:No. Not possible.
But there is hitting yourself too much (concentrate on planes and get ribbon poi..may be girly but great for practicing)

And there is DEFINITELY such a thing as being on HoP too much redface

Pounce made me do it... I swear...

I came back from travelling to find that she had like 2000 posts more than me. Which, considering she wasn't even on the boards when i left, is alarming. So, obviously, I had to get back the title....
