A Hoop Jam in Costa Rica

hooping costa rica Everyone is smiling, laughing and having a great time spinning it up at this hoop jam in Costa Rica. This short but sweet little video from Hoopnosis Costa Rica does a great job of capturing the fun spirit of a hooptastic get-together, and one hooper’s fantastic rainbow hoop fits right in as he rocks some on-body hooping. It all happens in San Jose, Costa Rica, and the soundtrack for this is “Atrevete Te Te” by Calle 13, and you can snag a copy for yourself over on iTunes.

Hooping Tutorials: The Energy Ball

Ron Starr One thing that the Internet provides us with these days is a plethora of hooping tutorials, some are quick fix lessons while others require quite a bit of digesting before it all sinks, which can sometimes end up being quite frustrating as it can be hard finding that technique that is simple to learn, effective and open to further possibilities. What Ron Starr of TrinityStarr Hoops has given us here is just that. A cool, easy to learn technique for a move he calls “The Energy Ball” which he very ably demonstrates along with some super cool variations. Ron lives in Santa Clara, California, USA, and the soundtrack accompanying him is “Dope Slide” by SHDWPLAY which is available on on iTunes.

Music, laughter and bright colors filled the air at Orchard City Green in Campbell, California, earlier this week. The South Bay Hoopers, the local hoop community for those from throughout Silicon Valley who want to get together and hoop it up, flocked to the green between Campbell City Hall and the Campbell Library to spin things up and have a good time. Crissy Gugler of the The Infinite Hoop, founder and organizer of the event, told the Campbell Patch that the weekly hoop jams are taking place every Tuesday night from 7-9 p.m. The get-togethers are free and open to anyone who wants to join them, but the group doesn’t do much for publicity. “If they’re interested, they’ll find us,” Gugler said. The group’s favorite spot is Pioneer Park in Mountain View, but it also frequents Ortega Park in Sunnyvale, Municipal Rose Garden in San Jose and the Orchard City Green in Campbell. Daniel Odulo explained, “It’s cool people doing cool stuff.” Video Here.
