Posted:It is with terrible sadness that we learned of the passing of Burning Dan on Sunday night.

There are no further details as yet.

Many people on this forum had met Dan, or spun with him at one of the many meetings all over the planet - UberPoi, UberParis, a special couple of weeks in Thailand, Nick's poi retreats, Fire Drums, Burning Man... countless others.

He was a bright light and shining soul... someone you would never forget once you had met him.

It's such a shock to think that he has gone...

Tigerbalm and watermelons...

I thought I'd open this post for anyone on these forums, who still visits, and wants to remember...

Thanks x

Posted:I've never met him either but I have indeed seen his spinning before and it seems like with that kind of style he'd rather enjoy it in the afterlife, assuming its somewhat like my dreams in which there are no limiitations.

I'll go put some tiger balm on my nipples now in commemoration of his life, which by the reaction of those who knew him appears to have been quite well spent.

Posted:Can't believe this dude has gone. I never had the pleasure of meeting the guy but whenever I watch him perform I can never help but smile whilst he spins. We'll see him again soon, but sadly just in another form but it will unmistakably be him through through without a doubt.

Never met him but the sweetness of his being reflects in the pain of his friends and acquaints.

RIP Dan - you will not be forgotten

Was this the same tigerbalm Dan that ran the stuff under his eyes?

He was like, my hero.

RIP, dude. x
