About six months ago our hot water heater flooded the garage. Everything had to be dragged out into the alley while a worker installed a new one. Then it started to pour. So everything got thrown back in all helter skelter. So the the hoops went in behind the industrial sewing machine and the work bench. Somewhere down on the floor something is sitting through the hoops. I was bummed. It was looking like not only was I not going to get to hoop on the 4th of July, but it was beginning to look like I'd miss the whole summer.
During the flood, the leftover tubing ended up on the patio. Either yesterday or at some point, I realized I could make a new hoop without too much hassle. I still had 2 connectors. I still had tape. So today I made one after watching a video by hooper Safire. Of course now it's too humid out and I'm too tired to use it but at least it's ready to use. And I love the metallic sheen of the red strapping tape.

Yesterday I noticed that Serious Juggling also carries hoops in both adults and children's sizes as well as a heavier hoop for exercising. I've bought juggling equipment from them at conventions, and I've loved everything I've gotten from them.

Hooping video. This is a trippy hooping video my boyfriend shared with me. I haven't hooped for a while but with spring just around the corner I'm starting to get in the mood. Unfortunately when our hot water heater leaked, the garage got rearranged and I can't reach my hoops right now. I'll have to empty out some things to get to them, but it will be worth it right.
