Hey Hoopers!I got into hooping a few years ago, and in on of my YouTube surfing sessions I stumbled upon a video of somebody in a giant hoop. That began my obsession with the cyr wheel. I know there…

How did your performance at Burningman go? Do you have any video? I'd love to see. I was thinking of you that Saturday night. I bet you were amazing.

We were on a grass patch between Nathan's and Beer Beach or whatever it's called... Probably not far from you! We had fun; wish we had seen you later, though!! :)

Thanks for emailing me! Our director is loving the idea of hilighting hoopers in our next video - I'm obsessed with watching youtube videos with hoopers!

Hey Randy. I'm in a band and we're shooting a music video this Saturday. We want to feature hoopers - any chance you're in the NYC area and interested in being in a fun video for an indie band?

good eye! you are right. I do hoop to the left, and spin on my wheel to the right. I noticed it right away when spinning to the right was easier and I thought it was totally weird!

You are way ahead of me! Go Randy. Please give my regards to Chad Bennett, who hosts Wildfire. I love him and I was sad I couldn't go this time. (And kinda glad now. I am so sore! You are a superman!)

Definitely check out Brandy Hug's photo album on facebook. She got some great shots of you. I haven't found the peanut dressing recipe yet but I must confess that I'm procrastinating on the unpacking. It's out of the car and about 20% is put away. It's amazing how much stuff I take there!!! I'll find it though and share it. I ate that stuff on EVERYTHING!

A journey in the "Big Hoop"

Hey Hoopers!I got into hooping a few years ago, and in on of my YouTube surfing sessions I stumbled upon a video of somebody in a giant hoop. That began my obsession with the cyr wheel. I know there is interest in this "big hoop" among the hooping community so I thought I'd post this video of my first 100 days learning cyr wheel (totally on my own with no instruction at first).I hope you enjoy this different type of hoop journey...First 100 Days in the Cyr…See More

Randy Kato replied to the discussion 'travel hoops - which one do you recommend?'
"Well, I'm not a "lovely lady" but I'll chime in here. If it's light weight you want, polypro is pretty much the way to go. I've been hooping for a few years with polypro and have developed a segmented collapsible that…"

Randy Kato replied to the discussion 'Fueling Up Troubles'
"Another way - when there's no good spin off area/option - is to use chemical gloves to squeeze excess fuel out of the wicks. Just use one squeezing hand with a glove as you'll want to keep the other hand "clean" to handle the…"

Randy Kato replied to the discussion 'Polypro sizing'
"Are you ordering a hoop or tubing to make a hoop? The 5/8" OD is referring to the size of the tubing. It sounds like you're asking about the size/diameter of the hoop itself... that's usually measured as the outer diameter (OD), but…"

Randy Kato replied to the discussion 'Love/Hate relationship with Flexible Spines'
"Well, I do a lot of breaks too, and tosses (...drops), so I'm not sure that's necessarily it. How do you store the hoop? I pretty much always hang it up or lay it flat so the weight isn't resting on the wicks/spines."

Randy Kato replied to the discussion 'Love/Hate relationship with Flexible Spines'
