Can see a lot of Nick W's influence in there - no bad thing at all.

One piece of advice I would offer would be make sure your long-arm stuff is neater - really straighten your arms.

Overall though, I'd personally like to see more speed variation and mix the planes up a bit more - but yeah, for 10 months, damn good

Posted:Yeah thanks!
Maybe i should say that i never was on a convention or something like that. 99% of my time i had to spin alone and i never met a poi spinner who was realy experienced.
Thanks for the tips, i will respect them.

Posted:you make me look like poo. wink

Like Durbs said, there is a lot of Nicks influence present, and that is really good, he has inspired us all or most of us for so many years.

I really like your style, there was a real good mixture of more traditional (what i call it) moves, basic to intermediate type stuff mixed with all this new age fandangle influenced my Spherc Matt.. which again is not a bad thing (just not my cup of tea).

To say that you have never met any one that can do poi on a decent level in person, plus that you only started 10 months ago... you must be sore all over from 24 hour days practising, square eyes from watching so many videos to take that much inspiration to be that good in 10 months.

hug nice video (use a tripod ; next time is my advise) ) and i look forward to seeing more from you in the future.

Posted:Ok... Except speed variation and cleaning up some of the moves, you've done an outstanding job reaching this level in merely ten months. Extrodinary, actually. Judging by the music, you don't happen to be a raver are you?

I was just thinking, because somehow, your rythm to the music is spot on. However, even for me ( a raver at heart ), it becomes almost annoying to hear this tone through the entire video, and I think it's connected to your speed changes as well, so next thing you do, should be finding proper ( to you ) spinning music. I have a huge problem with this myself, but I find a few good ones, from time to time.

Keep up the excellent work, and don't forget to have fun! smile

Maybe the music does not fit entirely because i only deletet the original tone of the vid and put this song at his place. If you want so i am a raver yes, at least i love goa trance.
Thanks for all the flowers and the constructive criticism. The conditions i had for this video were really bad, it was windy, it had no time and no music. But i'm looking forward to make another one in near future. I hope you understand my english ^^

Posted:Hey man, there is nothing wrong with goa or any of the electronic music! I think it happens to go good with the poi, if you know the song and can dance to it wit hthe poi! Other than that, 10 months of spinning, pretty damn good if you ask me.
