how do you made up tricks?


#1

Hey, so I do have a combo, but I dont like the ending… I do like three flips and drop a finger and that sets me up for a bind. But I dont know what else to do! Its a random string configuration, it looks like, it isn’t, but kinda looks like a backwards 1.5 mount… What do you do in these situations?

Hit ALL THE STRINGS.

Get into a mount. Then do something you haven’t done from that mount before and see if that gets you somewhere… 1/2 mount is a great place to start :slight_smile:

Try to make knots.
The things that become knots and get undone is a flowlike manner, are your new tricks.

This video gives you a bunch of foundation work on how to build a combo

And the others on this page give you ideas from starting mounts.

Mocking yoyofactoryben? lol

Don’t talk about him.

I’m talking about mocking him. Not him as a person. I’m so mean… But really, the resemblance to the other picture was uncanny.


#11

In no way would I ever put those two things together. I like yyf, and Ben. And I made this picture 1+ years ago (before I knew anything about yoyo teams and whatnot). Plus I’ve only seen that picture one other time, and I forgot I had until now. And do they even resemble each other?


#12

I usually start by making an announcement such as “MAKE TRICK!” Really, any assortment of alphanumerical digits will suffice. The point is gusto. Now go forth and tear that trick a new knot like Jayyo says!


#13

mess around with different mounts and things you’ve never tried before.


(SR) #14

Just do it.

Maybe you can pick one specific trick element, like chopsticks, and try and make a combo centered around chopstick mounts, boings, and dismounts.
