I wish I could give credit (or blame) to whomever turned me on to my newest addiction. Sometime in the last couple of weeks I read one of your blogs about “hooping” and since I didn’t understand the reference I Googled the term and “VOILA” my new passion ! Hoop dancing! Unfortunately I got so wrapped up in all the YouTube videos I forgot to make note of whom to thank! So whoever you are, I want you to know I am so excited and pleased to be hooping up a storm! THANK YOU!
I wanted to buy one but these danged things aren’t cheap. Lucky for me someone posted a video on how to make a hula hoop. The ones most of us think of when we think of Hula Hoops are the old-fashioned ones for children. Those don’t work nearly so well as these. The new versions are far bigger and heavier and thus much easier for adults to use.
I went to Home Depot and got everything I needed: 160 psi irrigation tubing, couplers, a ratcheting PVC cutter, and some colored electrical tape and colored Duct tape. I spent about $75 total BUT I can make at least a dozen hoops from this. All my friends will be receiving hoops and I expect them to USE THEM!!
Here are the results of my first three tries:
Not too shabby!!
If I ever get to be half as good as the girls at Hoopnotica then maybe, just maybe I’ll post a video of me hoopdancing but that will probably be a looong time coming.
