    My Girlfriend Cracking a Whip

    It's been a while since I last logged on here (I forgot my password. haha).

    Anyway, just wanna share this video of my GF cracking a whip. We're both the main admins of a group I formed here in the Philippines called Pinoy Whip Enthusiasts. Surprisingly, we already have 300+ members. And to think, when I started whip cracking, I thought I was the only one here in my country interested in it.

    I too can crack a whip. Mine has a swivel handel. I've had it for years. I got it from my brothers friend most likely in late 1982-83 after Raiders of the Lost Ark. Mine is currently in storage (My solid metal Golden Idol prop is hidden in there too. It's not labeled on any of the boxes, so I don't know where exactly it is, but it's in one of the boxes somewhere).

    What whip do you use for your Indy get-up?

    ----------------------------------------

    Actually, I always assumed most gearheads knew how to crack a whip seeing as it is a main part of the costume. Wouldn't learning to crack the whip come naturally to anyone who dresses up as Indy?

    Is there anybody here who doesn't know how to crack a whip?

    Wow, some of those cracks were like gunshots! Your GF is quite proficient! I've never really cracked my whip, as the one I have is, while real, mainly just an accessory for my costume. I've uncoiled it and just swished it around a bit in the apartment, which is quite entertaining for my cat.

    I'm just using the whip with the swivel handle. It's not screen accurate, but when coiled up on my side, it's hard to tell it's not screen accurate for most observers. I have no idea who made it.

    JeffDJ,
    When you slow down the video the cracks really sound like gunshots, but on full-speed, they just sound lame. Hehehe.
    I know what you mean about cats... mine chases the cracker everytime!

    RCSignals,
    We'll get there... she doesn't smoke as much as me and she's making me cut down on my sticks per day.

    A little history about my GF: She's actually part of the rodeo scene here in the Philippines. She's competed a lot of times in different places before we got together. The last event she participated in was bullriding, although she just lasted 2 seconds on the bull. She was awarded the title of Rodeo Queen a couple of years back in her university rodeo event years ago... Lucky me!

    Re: My Girlfriend Cracking a Whip

    Here are a couple of pics of her cracking a whip:


    This was a photoshoot before we became a couple...




    She won 2nd place in the freestyle whip cracking event...

    The whips in those pics are basically abaca rope whips. Dunno exactly how they're made, but they're big and heavy.
