Bow before this stall:

His name is Nami (usefully enough) and I met him during the edinburgh festy, really nice chilled out guy. Plus he's really really good at contact and had one of the best costumes I've ever seen for a street performer. Has anyone else spotted him/met him?

Oh my god...wow... O.O

Not only is that an amazing stall, that whole composition of the shot, the make up and the costuming is mind blowing.

How can I forgot a so talented, nice guy with the same name as my cat?

Nami was incredible. I'm happy I could meet him.

I don't like the speed up... it's making him lose his style.

Wowza... Ok thats kinda sweet... and if that much control is possible there then its more worth working on then even Drew had previously made me think... LOL ok so next thing to say. Ok for those of you who do either the 1 or 2 finger stall like that does it merit dropping a size to a 3 inch or is it doable with a 4? whats better to learn with? thanks in advance =) one more thing? Fingernails? yay or nay?

I've noticed its much easier with a hollow 4" steel than my heavy 4" acyrlic. I say learn with a light ball, and then adapt to your acrylic

Fingernails equal big yay for this stall, he'd grown his middle finger nail and thumbnail for a good few years to create a stall point on each.

Pretty darned effective I reckon.
