Posted:i HATE where i live... im right at the top of what is considered "south florida" and there is NO ONE here who spins poi. im having SUCH trouble learning because i NEED someone who can teach me and there is no one here.

im okay, i mean i have the basics down and i think im doing good, but then i watch all the vids here of people spinning and my routine is just boring.

i cant do btb stuff, i suck at thread the needle. i need someone to teach me. im the only person i know who spins here.... it sucks!

Posted:Hey, don't get so p.o. 'bout it. I used to live in houston,texas. You'd think with that big of a city there would be alot of spinners and there are, it's just that they are so spread out across the city. For the longest time I only spun by myself. I didn't know any other spinners for likea a couple of months. then I met one here on HoP. One idea is to look in yahoo groups for a group that spins in the nearest city to you. You never know, there might be a spinner that lives close to you but not registered in the HoP data base. He or she might be in the group if there is one.

Always use "so's your face" and "only on Tuesdays" in as many conversations possible

Posted:i know what you mean dude, i live in israel, and there arent many people that do poi (there are jugglers that can do the weave and stuff, but im talking about people that do poi as their favorite prop).
i met this guy doing poi on independence day, i went over to him and showed off a bit, i told him to start coming to our juggling club in my city and he started going, and thanks to him i went to PLAY (i just mentioned it next to him and he said he wanted to go, so we went together)
ummm so anyway just try to find people to teach, and you might start a poi community in south florida.
