Posted:Orbitals are the long, continuous spins. Like hyperloops on steroids. To get into a hyperloop, you basically do just turn while doing an air wrap. The timing is really obnoxious, and it's the only move where having different colored sock poi really helped me learn it. From a hyperloop you get into an orbital by pulling the cords tight.

Posted:Nick'svideo on orbitals is really really good. There's someone else's of him in a workshop that really made it click to me. Pull on the poi when they are facing straight up and down. Idk why it worked, but once I saw that it worked nearly every time.
Posted:Another thing aside from what SoD mentioned, I find that my orbitals nearly always succeed when done out of an inverted weave. That is, do an inverted 3-beat-weave, and right as the poi are crossing infront of you, tug your hands apart.
