    Any hula hoopers here?

    I just got a new hoop, and as I generally go with big heavy hoops, I was really dissapointed that it was only a 1/4" tube (but the diameter was right at 40" for tricks) but WOW! The lightness really helps doing tricks, and getting it to stay in areas like chest/hips/knees. I can even do neck tricks, which had been a problem as the heavy ones hurt too much.

    If you hoop, what size do you find works best for you? I use a small (33" diameter) 1" tube for "exercise" and now I have a big hoop for tricks! What's your favorite trick? I'm learning the vortex, all I can do right now is pick up and toss back to waist.

    Cool! I hoop a bit, but I'm not nearly as into it as you appear to be, but that's awesome. I just have a hoop that my friend made for me out of PVC and colored electrical tape. It's about 37" diameter, don't know how heavy...the PVC piping it's made out of is probably 1.5 or 2 inches in diameter, can't do neck tricks at all with it. I use it mostly to keep myself moving while I watch TV or sometimes during long phone conversations with my bluetooth on. Do you think I could learn other tricks with that kind of hoop?

    Oh yeah, I would stay away from neck work, but you could do vortexs with it, and chest hooping, and arm hooping. You may be able to do knees, but it's hard with a hoop that thick. There are tons of tutorials on youtube that teach you how to do all sorts of tricks.

    Yeah, I do have a tendency to smack myself in the face every now and again, but practice makes perfect (or somewhat close to perfect)
