Whether it be by randomly picking up a hoop, or having it introduced by a friend, how did you get into hooping?
For me, it was all by chance. A group of friends and I met up one night, just to hang out. One of my girlfriends brought two hoops with her. This was a couple months ago, and it was the first time I picked up a hoop since childhood. I had totally forgot about them! Watching my friend hoop was amazing. The flow of it is what really caught me. I believe everything in life has a flow. The universe flows, and so do I.
I picked up the hoop that night, and couldn't put it down! I can't even really do any tricks, but, just the motion and the feeling it brings is what I love. Not to mention the health benefits!
I saw that friend again a few weeks ago. I had a beach day with her and her family. Her mom was constantly hooping, laughing and just having fun. She would get excited whenever she could do a trick perfectly, and I couldn't help but be attracted to it. There was even a small hooping group right on the beach, and I saw the way they would interact with each other, and my friend's family. They treated each other with respect, and came over to talk with us, before going off again to their group. It was beautiful.
Well, anyway, enough about me! What about you?
What was your call?

hooping is my life. never realized something could produce such happiness as a hoop! but i am in love and will never go back to be a non hooper :D
For me it was randomly in the parking lot of a mall. Me and a few friends were waiting on others to show so my friend took her hoop out her trunk and just got jiggy right there!
It was magical. A month later I went to Kansas City Hoop Day in the Park, the first ever one, and got taught the Warrior and reverse warrior. I was always pretty good at hooping even as a kid I could walk with it and knee hoop, but ut was soooo much fun and intriguing. Though I had NO clue how to even begin to get one myself, So I started off with a $7 CVS hoop. Lighter than air and I learned the vortex and step through. Took a few hours.
Now, I finally got my first LED hoop and still progressing each day.
