MessageSujet: Greetings   Sam 18 Avr 2009 - 8:55

Hello, Jerome!

Thank you for the invitation to join this group. This group proves whip cracking is a world wide phenomenon. I look forward to reading posts and sharimg my own thoughts and experiences.

My name is Robert Dante.

I am a professional bullwhip artist in the U.S.A. I have set three Guinness World Records for most bullwhip cracks in one minute (my current record is 254). I am the 2008 recipient of the Brian Chic Whip Artistry Award, and I am author of the book, "Let's Get Cracking! The How-To Book of Bullwhip Skills."

I own numerous whips, but my favorites are my 6-footers by Mike Murphy. My website is at Whip cracking may not make me rich financially, but it has made me rich in experiences and friends.

Thank you for allowing me to be here -

Best regards,

-R Dante-

Hi Robert!!!

You are so welcome!!!

I can't believe it's true, a whipmaster on this forum....that's amazing!

Thank you so much for your kind participation!

I love the way you describe the whip on your book, the way each whipcracker must "feel" the belly inside the whip, and the essential thing (that I must always keep in my mind): "to let the whip crack" am I wrong?

Bye Master et merci à toi JB!!!

Hi Robert and welcome to this little group. It'll be nice to have someone with your experience here.

Thank you for your warm welcome.

JB, you asked about my world record. There are 8 different Guinness World Records for bullwhips and stockwhips:

Whip cracking - longest whip
Most bull whip cracks in one minute (I have broken this record 3 times)
Most stock whip cracks in one minute
Most candles extinguished by a stock whip in 30 seconds
Fastest mile spinning a whip top
Fastest whip
Most whip cracks with two whips in one minute
Most candles extinguished by a whip in one minute

It costs nothing to sign up with Guinness at You choose the record you want to break. Guinness assigns a Claim ID number to you and sends you a 14-page document which explains the proof you have to give them and the forms which should be included by witnesses. It then takes a few months for them to look at the evidence to verify you have a new record, unless you want to pay a lot of money to get an answer in 3 days.

Then - they send you the certificate which makes it official. They may or may not use your record in their annual World Record book.

I prefer to not give all my secrets away, but I will say that something that seems small may be important for a good result. For example, I found that by standing on a platform about a foot high, I could cycle the whip around quickly without dragging it through grass and losing time. I also calculated how fast I needed to go, and I made a tape of music at that speed to help me practice. When I tried for the record, I had the music in my head. Document everything, and get statements from people. Invite the media. And be prepared to be patient.

And yes, it's worth all the effort.

Best to you,

Dear Marie,

I made a mistake when I wrote the URL, because I included the final dot in the link. I should have left a space after the address, before the period. Here is the address:

(No period at the end)
