A little over two years ago I learned how to make really nice hula hoops for learning to do tricks with.
These are the first two hoops I made. Both are made from 25mm IPEX pipe and a straight pipe joiner. I have also made a few hoops for other people over the last two years.
The larger one was the first one I created, and was originally wrapped in white hockey tape with writing all over it. Recently it accidentally ended up getting soaked in insecticide, so I stripped the tape off and re-wrapped it. Both hoops are wrapped in white hockey tape and painted.
I plan to make an even larger one that moves even slower to help with learning motions, moving up to smaller ones as I get the motions learned and ingrained in muscle memory.
