Posted:WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My parents we're going to get me my first set of fire poi for Christmas as a surprise, but they needed me to order it because its on my account and only I know what I need so my mom told me. I was like frozen. I have been practicing religiously for 2 months for this. I can already do all the basics, a vertical orbital, atomic weave, my 3bt btb weaves and turning between them and can almost do it on a wheel plane. Just about everything concerning flowers, all my fountains, just about the only thing that's not super advanced that I can't do to any extent is butterfly crossers. I am completely ecstatic about this and I can't wait to be surrounded by the roar of the flames. beerchug

Posted:I know, I can't believe my parents support this. Even my German exchange student that has been doing it for 4 years, his parents hate it.

Posted:Lol, my parents are so strict when it comes to me and fire since I burned my face firebreathing. Especially my dad, but it was his idea to get me these. confused And my mom said they're fine with it because they see that it's a lot more safe and controlled than firebreathing. But MY DAD?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!?!?! Holy jeebus! I just can't believe it was his idea!

Posted:Ha, I'm 16 and have been spinning religiously for 2 months. Here's what I got with double loop handles. http://www.homeofpoi.com/shop/productDetails/Pair-of-Pro-Series-Cords-with-Cathedral-Fire-Poi
br>Along with fire safety video, a dipping can, and a fuel bottle. A total of $90.48 wink
Also, I would have never expected this considering my dad is out of a job and I agreed that all I wanted was the full detailed bone necklace with the twirling design and have already ordered.

Posted:I could curb stomp out of jealousy but instead I'll just ask for a couple of vidz showing me how it's done! tongue2 Glad to hear you're taking the next step in your practice. Take care and always respect the flame. It's welcoming and smothering but not always the with the best intentions.

Become great, and inspire ^^b

Posted:How what is done? lol
And I have learned to respect the fire after burning my face tongue2
Also, thank you all for your welcoming into fire poi. I decided I'll have my first burn once the weather warms up. Oh god, I can't wait. It'll be nice that I'll have extensive practice with those heavy things before I light up. I actually had an idea that if I go to Germany again for the exchange trip, I do a fire show with my inspiration, Lukas! We are like brothers ^^, and that I surprise him by stowing away some hidden FIRE SNAKES in my bag and pull them out at the last second! Oh god that would be awesome grin

Posted:Suportive parents are good. My mum loves that I have found something I'm passionate about. She paid for over half of my fire fans for no reason other than she felt like it and gave me $200 to spend on home of poi for my 18th birthday. That $200 was on top of the $220 my friends gathered together for my present. grin Everything I ordered came in the mail two days ago. I know how I'm spending my summer holidays smile practise practise practise.

Posted:What fans did you get? The giant 5 finger ones? That's what I would get, GO BIG OR GO HOME! My mum feels the same way grin that's the only real reason they let me do it and support it. At lest I think, unless they grew a love of fire in the past month.

Posted:Hey, Spinner of Detroit! Excuse the moronic question, but are you in Detroit? I visit family there sometimes! Cool that you're sixteen, too! I just turned seventeen last month! ^^

With happiness,

Posted:I am in a suburb of Detroit really close to it. And fyi if you're from the suburb of a city then you generally say you're from that city and everyone considers themselves to be. That was for those ppl that go YOU'RE NOT FROM DETROIT STOP BEING A POSER!!! My town is called Trenton and you should definitely come here some time, when do you next come up here, or do you not have any special visiting times and its just kind of random? Either way shoot me a massage or whatever you need to do because I'm on here quite often grin I would love to have someone to spin with grin grin grin
Oh and if you wanna have a great laugh, go onto one of those websites where it tells you the sexual assault people, and type in Detroit, you can't even see the map, it's just all those colored dots XD

Posted:No I haven't I've ever heard of it. I'll have to look it up, sounds awesome, except the vegan part, I am a meat man, yummy, especially Hooters grin
Edit: I looked it up and are you sure spinners are welcome? I saw nothing about it, and do they have a place to spin? Also, you do mean with fire right??? Do you need to sign a bunch of stuff? Because I am not used to being able to do anything like this easily.
