Let me tell you why this is the best trick today


#1

Just an idea for a thread:

Post a video of whatever trick you are feeling at the moment - old trick or new trick, from a tutorial or a freestyle with the time of the trick marked - and describe why you think it kills.

For example…

Creator: Yuuki Spencer
Trick: Cowabunga
Why it’s good: Ok this is a big generalization but frontstyle yoyoing doesn’t get so much attention other than being for braintwister combos. So it’s great to see Yuuki making a frontstyle trick that is pretty fresh, but with classic elements. Great flow and sections - a bit of “rock the baby”, smooth tumbles, and a bind that fits perfectly. So dope how the “rock the baby” part ends by dropping a ton of strings and ending up in a knot mount. The whole thing is composed really well with contrasting sections that make this a very dynamic frontstyle trick. And in general, what I like about Yuuki’s style is on display here: interesting contrasts between sections.

I like the idea! Can’t wait to see where it takes us :slight_smile:

The best trick today is Mexican Duck Pond, because it’s the best trick every day.

Let’s hear a little chatter out there folks, don’t make me triple post.
Frog in a bag is the best yoyo trick today because it’s really cool, and you can do it on your ten dollar yo-yo and your friend won’t be able to do it with his new titanium mega spin 3000.

Cool frog!

Even though this trick is really basic, I love how it looks. The loops of it look so amazing flying through the air.


#7

Shoot the Moon is the best trick today because even though it has been on the basic trick ladder for as long as there has been a trick ladder, you may be the only person in a room full of yo-yo players that can do it well if you practice and get it down.
You don’t have to knock your teeth out learning it, but you might have to bleed a little…

You guys are ready for this now, Nanda Kanda!


(yoyobro!) #16

" so get into that dang mount" ^-^ lol


#17

Ha! I like your eclectic choices :slight_smile:

Part of the reason I wanted to start this thread is because I realize how easy it is to get caught up in the gear (yoyos) of yoyoing instead of the tricks. So thanks for picking up the spirit of it - to share whatever trick that inspires you to keep throwing. Cheers!

My pick is this Takahiro Iizuka trick. (with a nice tutorial!)

This trick was one of the first tricks that I saw using a cool slack element that spins around sideways and is re-caught. Of course that is more common now, but at the time it seemed pretty sick to me. I had this video bookmarked to learn and forgot about it. So now maybe I can get inspired and finally learn this.

Also, I wish Iizuka was still throwing more…well ok, maybe he is but I haven’t seen many videos with him lately. Such a cool technical style but unfortunately he didn’t seem to really nail his contest freestyles cleanly enough or keep the momentum going to stay on people’s radar.


#19

This trick is so cool. I still can’t do it, but I keep chipping away at it, and if I ever learn it, it’s going to be my best trick every day.

Another gem from the '365,  these tricks look so easy when Steve does them!
A deceptively hard trick is the best trick today.
