It is difficult to describe the acrobatic movements of this fun loving 'crew' at Santa Monica's beach in a still photo. I had ever seen anything like it and no wonder, this kind of equipment only exists twice, here and in Riverside Park, New York City. As far as I know, the city of Los Angeles built this one here and some very talented people turned it into an incredible sports machinery, where the 'acrobat' swings from one ring to the next while performing twists and turns that hurt your arms just by watching.
The sport is fairly new, but there are already two websites : www.swingaring.com and http://ringflyers.com
And please watch this very cool video by author rchapain !!
or simply search Traveling Rings on YouTube...
