Caitlin Hofer: Autumn Ducksauce

Caitlin Hofer The Earth orbits the sun elliptically while spinning on its own axis that is tilted relative to its plane of orbit, exposing different hemispheres to the heat of the sun in varying degrees which leads to the changing of the seasons. The passing of each season brings about remarkable changes in the environment surrounding us, leaving Caitlin Hofer aka isopuppy, last year’s Newbie Hooper of the Year award winner, hooping like it’s nobody’s business in her ode to autumn/goodbye to summer video. We’re not sure about the “Ducksauce,” but there are a lot of ducks in this too. She lives in Santa Cruz, California, USA, and the soundtrack for this gem is “Summertime Sadness” by Lana Del Rey and it’s available for you to download on iTunes.

Caitlin Hofer: Geeked Out Hoopgirl

Caitlin Hofer: Geeked Out HoopgirlOxford dictionary defines the word geek as “a knowledgeable and obsessive enthusiast”, a term which pretty much sums up the video star you are about to see. In honour of YouTube’s “Geek Week,” Caitlin Hofer aka isopuppy geeks out with her hoop in absolutely fine fashion in the most appropriate location known to Geek-kind, the public library, complete with approved apparel and regulation backpack. She explained, “I decided to infiltrate my local public library for a little study session on flow science.” Looking at the sweet tricks she busts out in this, I think we can safely say she’s well on her way to a degree in Hoop Geekology.
