Posted: i have no idea how to do the windmill...ive tried so many times to get into it and i always mess up!!! if anyone could help me that would be great...please be patient..i have only been spinning for a month.........thanx
1) go from forwards weave to reverse weave using a 180 degree turn. As you go to turn back into the forwards weave stop after 90 degrees and raise your hands around your head/shoulders and you're there
2)try a giant windmill first to get the feeling of having the poi 180 degrees apart when they're above you
3)if you can do a simple corkscrew (2 beat methinks) gradually stand upright and the poi will be doing a windmill.
On the other hand you could look: here perhaps.... or maybe here....
this one might help
Or you could do a search - it's been talked about quite a lot. but once you get it you won't be able to understand how you couldn't do it
Posted: I usually pick up new moves quick, but this one was hard for me too. I just got it last night. It was helpful for me to go back and forth between forward and reverse weave, and try to throw them behind my head instead of transitioning into reverse. DOes that make sense? Hope so. I suddenly realized last night it was 3 a.m. and I'd been practicing for about 1.5 hours ... so I'm tired today. Good luck! laterz, -Todd
Posted: and once you can do the windmill both directions you can turn it Start in a forward windmill and turn 180 degres so it becomes a reverse.
I'd post how, but I'm not quite sure how I do it. Um, think split time chasing the sun, only turned 90 degres. *confused* If that don't work, and anyone is actually interested in trying this, let me know and I'll try to put together something more cohesive.
The world is not out to get you but if you fight it you will be eaten alive
Posted: i actually learned it now.... i was doing the weave, then in the middle of the weave on my right side i put it over my head then i was doing it...was easy as pie...and was kinda an accedent learning it...lol
Posted: When I joined this site, I didn't know the names of any of the moves that I could do. As of yesterday I figured out the names for all of them except one...THE WINDMILL! Thanks...now I know the proper name...you know, rather than calling it "over the head thingy".
If you have one for the road, I'll provide the chaser.
Posted: I have the windmill down fine forwards and reverse but i'm wondering how to add extra beats onto the windmill i'm guessing it's just like a weave over your head but i just keep burning my face so if anyone has any suggestions it would be really helpful thankx

Posted: yep I know oh too well! and have plenty of burn marks/singed hair to prove it
Also another alternative that looks quite nice with the windmill is putting in a giant windmill, it took a little while to learn exactly where to be extending my arms and feels a little weird at first but once you have learnt it, it runs quite smoothly.
Posted: It gonna sound strange. What I did was when the poi moved to my back I tried to graze it across my head. It hurts a little bit but it helps teach you what your hands are doing when you cant see them EDITED_BY: Astephy (1303340328)
