Jason Lee's Figure 8

I keep getting an extra loop over my throw hand after one rotation. I don’t know what I am doing wrong

I don’t know what your doing wrong exactly but i would try curling in your throw and non throwhand pointer fingers.

I am. To my knowledge I am downing everything he does in the video. I just get an extra loop

I am still getting the extra loop around my th index.

Make sure that when you do the circle, the loop of string on your TH spins freely around your finger. You just kinda use it guide the yoyo. Im not sure if that makes sense but keep at it, it’s a little weird but you’ll get it eventually

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HECPBoCW830 I made a video of me messing up the trick. If you see anything immediately wrong I would love that it be pointed out

See it kinda looks to me like you hook the string with your TH as it goes around. You dont want to do that, its gotta spin around freely. You’re just kinda slinging the yoyo with your TH in this move
