There are Now 24 Guinness World Records for Whips - (and April Choi is Getting Great Press)

. Guinness has added to its already impressive list of whip-related records, bring the total to a mind-boggling 24.
. April Choi has been racking up the records lately, getting a lot of well-deserved exposure for her achievements.
. April now holds the record for Most Newspapers Split using a Bullwhip (22) with Bethany Byrnes, Most Stock Whip Cracks on a Slackline in One Minute (127), and Most Jenga Blocks Removed with a Whip in One Minute (4).
. . April's feats have been highlighted by appearances on ABC's Gong Show, interviews on NBC, Huffington Post, Univision, and The Today Show, among others.
. As complete as I can make it, a list of GWR titles is at
www.Bullwhip.Net .
. (My only regret is that I was in Alaska while April was at the Meta Con comic convention in Minneapolis - picture above. Had it been otherwise, I would have been sitting on the front row to cheer her on!)

Sylvia Rosat Shows Us How
On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Silver Whips' Sylvia Rosat recently posted this marvelous trailer for her new whip cracking video. Enjoy!

Blake Bruning of Trinity Whips recently put out a short video in which he compares a Target bullwhip with a classic Indy-style bullwhip. He demonstrates the differences with a series of cracks and volleys. Interesting! (Thanks, Blake!)
Robert Dante Reads      I love the way the gods play with me. I am an unabashed  fan of April Choi, who was in Minneapolis on Sept. 2 when she set a new world record at a comic convention. 
       I live 17 miles from Minneapolis, but on that day I was 3,165 miles away - in Alaska, cracking whips, giving lessons, enjoying some of the best sushi in the world, and meeting great folks.
       My Mary got out with her camera and caught photos of brown bears, black bears, roaring crystal-clear waterfalls - enough, in fact, to make me want to go back soon! (My special thanks to Sarha and Martin, who made this a wonderful 6-day adventure.)
       Post-op rehab on left elbow is going well, and I am almost a two-handed whip cracker again. I was really Jonesing there for a while!
       I'd like to remind you about the Bullwhip Accessories Shop at Bullwhip.Net - we've got great products for you there at fair prices, and we're always keeping our eyes open for new quality items. (Believe me, everything I sell has been field tested!)
      The day after tomorrow, I head off to Melbourne, Australia to give whip demos, lessons, and performances at an adult event (details at my adult-only site). I'll be there for 10 days, and who knows what I will see! I intend to make a video of the experience for my own fans and friends (is there a difference?).
       See you in October. Until then, have fun, be safe, and don't forget to "Relax Your Ass!"
