"I feel your pain. I am humbled by my hoop every time I try my reverse current (left). I can only waist hoop to the left for about 2-3 minutes right now before it falls. Persistence! We'll get there :)"

Hi! How are you? How's your hooping journey going? I'm know I'm so late but, Happy late Thanksgiving. I had an awesome Thanksgiving. I did finally cut my polypro down about 2inches I figured I'd cut it down as I feel the need. Well, hope to hear from you soon. HHJ
