I strayed off the beaten path in my yoyoing somewhat. I mostly abandoned trick tutorials when I was still a relative novice. I had barely learned ladder escape when I decided to make my own tricks.
As such, my yoyoing can be weird. Nowadays, you see these kids on the competition scene, and pretty much every trick they throw is a variation on a meta element that literally everyone does. Which I get tired of sometimes, but I does score very well. So I respect the hustle.
But for better or worse, my trick set is kind the opposite of meta I guess. It’s pretty much entirely based on layers of elements that I’ve been figuring out on my own since I was 13. Unfortunately, I’ll never win any competitions with it. But it’s definitely my own.
I just whipped this one up on a study break. Looks odd, but it’s SUPER fun.
