Aubr3ylee has a tutorial of this trick on youtube and man its a bitch! I have all planes of vertical and the timing down but perhaps not the shoulder placment/movement? I make note of craning my neck out of the hoop so that my shoulder doesn't follow my head turn but about 70% of the time i feel the hoop fly off. Ducking out vertically on my left shoulder (i hoop counterclockwise) is a piece of cake but for some reason the right shoulder into a continuous roll is giving me hell. I've put in the time and more than willing to put in more but does anyone have any extra pointers to send me off into the land of continous shoulder rolls vertical styyyyle?? Tis a badass trick my friends.
Mad thanks y'all-Dani D
sure can lady..here she be..
try sticking your arm up in the space when you duck your neck out instead of keeping it down. it'll give you a feel for where your shoulder needs to be while providing more stability (preventing fly-offs). it really does make the duckout without the shoulder easier to do, and after a while just try ducking your arm out and keeping it in place. also, when you start taking your arm out, keep your shoulder cramped up like you're trying to rest your head on your shoulder. but, of course, your head will be tilted towards the other shoulder.
i've definitely gotten a bloody nose learning this trick..ha, i bled all over another girl's hoop…the next day she was like, "you can have it…" hahaha (: good luck!
mmyyyeess i definitely find that sometimes one must train their body a certian stance or way to move so that the trick may be achieved to its full and total awesomeness. I think perhaps my problemo is that I am not used to having my shoulder so close to my collerbone-ish area and then kept at that cramped area as I swing my noggin away to the opposite side. Also momentum in the upward swing after the first duckout is key to continuing this bad boy! I have only now after about 4 months of hooping begun to record my progress and I must say that watching practice videos when just learning a trick is AAAWWEEESOME! For seeing what you are doing wrong, yes, but mostly because its like americans funniest home videos. Hoop flying across the room as you hear far off distant breakage of something you hope to god wasn't expensive or sentimental.....watching hhiiiilllarious facial expressions in slow mo until I nearly wet myself...ahh cheap thrills I tell you, they are most excellent. Though of course all part of the kick aaaasss process! I will keep going with the body placement and hang in until I conquer the shit outta this thing!!! So far this has been my biggest challenge...I find it so fascinating what comes easily to me and what is challenging. Even more interesting is how everyone is so different in that respect. What may be a breeze to me is a challenge for others, and vise versa. Just goes to show how unique each person really is in life and with hooping. Thanks for the extra in put yo! Much appreciated
and thats fucking hilarious about you bleeding all over that chick's hoop...the visual I must say made my day... subtle disgusted look on her face as she casually re-gifts the blood ridden hoop...mahahah...yes
That looks gorgeous. I love it.
