So, I'm sure this questions has been asked a gazillion times before, but... how do I get from an off-body, possibly isolated, one-handed (say that fast!) barrel roll to vertical shoulder hooping, and smoothly at that? I can do both moves, but have trouble combining them.
Are there any tutorials about it available?
I generally give the hoop a little push or paddle on the outside as I'm dropping into it to make it spin around me fast enough to start shoulder hooping. It's definitely easier to do another barrel roll right when you drop in, and you can add a few paddles if the hoop is wobbly or rotating too slowly, but it can be done.
