Posted:Ok so I've got my fire poi, fuel, dip can, dump rag, fire exstinguisher, and first aid kit. I've talked a friend into acting as safety and filming the event. Studyied up on first aid for burns and fire safety. I feel confident and ready to spin fire poi for the first time. So does anyone have any tips for me for my first fire spin?

Posted:make sure you're safety isn't holding the camera, so that if you catch fire, ;they go 'awesome, wait, stop screaming, let me get a good angle..'

Posted:Dig out the tripod then, got it.

Knowing my friends it would be more like " No don't put it out yet this is the best part!". Wouldn't be the first video of me on fire though.

Posted:the main thing is to keep it simple. do what you feel confident doing. my first burn consisted of a 3bt weave and a few butterfly moves. spinning with fire is soo different from spinning dry. even if you spin your fire poi unlit, they will feel completely different once you light them up! have fun though!

Posted:Make sure, once the burn is over and flames are out, that your filmer stops taping immediately to avoid any embarassing moments such as my ten minute tirade of "It's so hot!"

On a serious note: Check, check, and recheck everything. Get you and your safety on the same page. Do some warm up spinning to make sure you're on your game and your muscles are warmed up. And stay well within your comfort zone (as soon as something feels even the slightest bit off, back away from it).

Posted:I would start with just one poi, get comfortable, then light up two.

Make sure you spin off properly too...

Have fun!
