Posted:Hi there,Since I'm the only bodyboarder/spinner of my area I wonder if there are a lot of sufers among poiers of this BB and if you feel isolated or a lot of your fellow sufers are spining/juggling too ????In fact It seems to me that spinning and surfing mix just fine. It require the same skillz concentration-motivation-fluidity and the same kind of pleasure... a pleasure in the move. Moving for moving and the beauty of it. PLUS Spinning is a good warm-up before a good session and there's nothing better than spinning around a fire on the beach after an hardcore session

In fact I think it's a good idea for a poll to ask people of this board which "community" do they come from (excuse my english)It's seems there are a lot of- ravers- goths- pure jugglers- neo-hippies- ...etc...- surfers ????

Posted:I am a surfer. :P None of my surfer buddies are into poi though. I love spinning at the beach....one of my favorite spots. So, I also, agree that they go hand in hand. ------------------ [PLUR]-=Crazy Raver Dude=-

Posted:Nice to know there are other wave riders into POI! I'd like to give respect to the late Jay Moriarty and his family: 22yo Santa Cruz/Maverick's pro surfer who past away this weekend in a driving accident in India. Life is precious and not necessarily fair.

Posted:...and another one! I'm a long time surfer (35 yrs+????) and old-time hippie from North Beach, SI , NZ. Just discovering the wonder of fire. I've always been youthful in nature but even more so in recent years since embracing some elements of the rave culture. I turned 16 at the end of 1970 so enjoyed the early 70's as a hippie/surfer -a wonderful time in NZ! SalmonellaDub - creating the best surf music ever!!LunaSam

Posted:Crazy thought:As anyone ever try to spin while surfing ??? (on a longboard it must certainly be easier) I would love to give it a try but with my BodyBoard it seems difficult (maybe in DropKnee ???)

) and Eldar. I moderate at the forums at The Warp (www.thewarp.net) and the Bolter and Chainsword forum(http://pub7.ezboard.com/bthebolterandchainsword). You should probably stop by them, especially the B&C(A Space Marine Forum), considering you play Space Marines. My name is "Moogoo the Great" on both. Hope to see you there.

Posted:No, sorry. I'm going to the first Canadian GD though, it's not gonna be as big (only 1 day), but if you wanna come here, NY isn't so far from Toronto, and tickets are only 11 bucks Canadian. It's on August 26, I think.
