Welcome to the fold.

Why, thank you! I think I'm addicted now. :)

And by the way, your userpic inspired me to make a firespinning userpic, too!

Vey cool! Congrats on not setting yourself on fire!
I'm going to be getting a fire SWORD soon!
Nov. 8th, 2006 05:50 am (UTC)
Most excellent!

I need to try that!

Re: Wow!
Yes, you do! I'll warn you, though...it's a bit like crack. You may think you can just quit any time, but once it gets its claws into you...

Re: Wow!
Shhh.. don't tell him that until *after* this weekend, please.

Re: Wow!
I think fire spinning may be the least of the addictions I potentially have to worry about when it comes to you. ;-)

WOW! I'm so proud of you!!!

looks like quite a rush.
Nov. 8th, 2006 05:06 pm (UTC)
It IS! Even more so than it looks. Quite honestly, I got a bigger kick out of it than I did out of skydiving.
Nov. 8th, 2006 07:06 pm (UTC)
WOW!! And here I'd given up my dreams of seeing you surrounded by fire when I stopped believing in Hell! ;-)

Seriously though, that looks like a blast! What are the poi balls actually made of? How do they work? Cherie's LED poi looks like a pretty and safe way to get started.

Fire Poi: http://www.firewhip.com/ Riz is a kinky, cool pyro over in Pinellas Park. He's very friendly & excellent teacher, willing to share the knowledge

Led Poi: http://www.poipoi.info and http://www.homeofpoi.com/shop/listItems.php/55

Actually.. you'll want to get started with something even safer than the LED balls.. they HURT if when you smack yourself. And they are fragile and break easily. But they are a great step after you get to intermediate level and quit whacking yourself just doing forward spin. Fire poi are a rush to spin.. but the LED poi are great for evenings, and can be spun under more conditions, and for a longer time.

Beanbag poi are a great way to get started. The Zuni Swing Poi have been what I have been recommending to folks starting, but some of the sites mladypain linked below sell similar things as well. I do believe we will be having a poi spinning class at FPR, along with having supplies on hand. And a few of us will be spinning fire in the evenings. *bounce*

The fire poi are made of kevlar wicking, and come in various configurations. The ones Franklin and I are using right now are 2" x 2" 'cathedral' style that we got at firewhip.com. We're just spraying on some plain ole charcoal lighter fluid to light them up - as it burns pretty low and doesn't splash. We'll be moving up to kerosene soon. When we do that, we'll have fuel cans that we soak the poi in to soak up the fluid for a longer, bigger, brighter burn. *grin*

Oh how wonderful!!!

cooool. but in a fiery way.

That looks really cool and fun. Did anyone make a video of it? I'd like to see it in action.
Dec. 3rd, 2006 12:16 am (UTC)
Sadly, no, no video. Perhaps next time!
Dec. 26th, 2006 06:12 am (UTC)
that is AWESOME!
Dec. 27th, 2006 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks! It was a hell of a rush.

Now that I'm up in Atlanta, I'm told there's a very active spinning community here, though I haven't yet had tim to go check 'em out. I'm hoping to be able to post more pictures when I do. :)
Dec. 27th, 2006 03:17 pm (UTC)
I'd never believe that such a thing is possible if I'd not see these pics. It's great!!
Dec. 27th, 2006 03:52 pm (UTC)
And a lot of fun. :)
