Custom Hula Hoops

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.
