Hey hoopers,If anyone is in the Maldives area, you may be interested in this request I received through my hooping website. I can't vouch for them, it was an unsolicited request, but it sounds interesting!My name is Callas from Maya Consultants Ltd. We are an event management firm which is looking for Hoola hooper for event we are holding in Maldives.Can you please give me the quotation and photos of the performance? I am looking forward to hearing you soon.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgSee More
"I would be interested in hearing whether anyone's had success with this, too. We spray painted some hoops a few years ago but because of the flexibility of the tubing, the paint cracked and didn't look very nice. I had thought of taping…"
"I haven't read the phone app thread, so excuse me if I repeat anything~
Great idea, good it be done as a "wiki" (as in open for contribution from everyone)? I'll be it would grow really, really fast!"
"Oh cool! I have a pretty big collection of christmas/holiday remixes but I hadn't seen some of these. If anyone has links to a continuous mix that's hoopfriendly definitely post it here!
The two collections I like are Verve Remixed…"
"Joining this thread a little late ~ I posted this as a new discussion but it wasn't tagged very well, so am repeating it here where it seems to belong!
Thought I'd share this Christmas mix that I put together last year for…"
Hi everyone,Thought I'd share this Christmas mix that I put together last year for our Hoop class. Some old tunes re-vamped, and some new stuff that isn't clichéd. The mix is just over an hour long (1:04) and starts with a warm-up and builds from there. Most are available on iTunes ('ve created an iMix (actually I think it's called a SportsMix) called "Hoopmix 4 Christmas" so you can find most of them together). Enjoy ~ and if anyone has other suggestions, let us know!Christmas Day ~ DidoIt…See More
"A friend of mine used spray paint and experimented... no extra weight! Doesn't last like tape (it cracks after a while) but looks really pretty. Should be good for festivals! You can tape afterwards if they get too messed up. Just be sure you…"
"Wow, great idea! I would love to participate... in the meantime, my vote for a song is: "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson... it's catchy, inspirational, and includes the lyrics "this world keeps spinnin' '" (full…"
"I know what you mean, that it dulls the metallic down a bit, but in the end it still looks metallic and since there isn't a comparison it doesn't usually present a huge problem. Otherwise metallics really chip and break down.
"Hi! You can buy clear tape at the sports store - it's used for hockey gear, I think. Sometimes there is a very 'white' looking roll, sometimes they look a little golden - maybe choose the white (very clear) but both do work. It's…"
"Hmmm not sure why you wouldn't bother measuring -- it's easy and then at least people have a reference in case they want to buy? Seems there are fairly standard sizes for small/med/large out there. And grip, for sure, makes a difference.…"
"Hi ~ I agree with both replies, it would be great to have at least three sizes (small 39-40", med. 42-43", lge 45" - 46"), because I find many people simply cannot hoop on a 40" until they get the knack of it. You could make…"
