Playing With Fire

05 May 2010

The local beach bars use the fire as a promotional activity, having locals flailing flaming sticks and demonstrating the different stunts before tourists generally gather the courage to give it a go. Walking along the beach after dark you can see the different bars with their fire performers out front.

James and I participated in some of the fire acts happening on the beach. First I did the limbo under a flaming pole, that was easy enough when it was high but I didn’t attempt any of the lower levels.

Next was flaming skipping where two of the bar staff control a flaming skipping rope and you jump in and skip. James and I both got minor burns from this, James’ are worse than mine. Last dare devil stunt I attempted was jumping through a flaming hoop, this was easy but good for a jump.
