Trick-a-Week 2024—#16 Waya combo

I got it down, but it still feels weird to me. It is the first arm trick I learned, and after landing it, I got motivated to check out this other easy one I saw recently (Slingshot GT)

Been working on flow boaty a little. I got it just gotta smooth it out better. That last part where you gotta catch it in your arm is awkward at first. I haven’t learned many tricks like this and the turtle trick. Good picks.

Ooo yah that last outside wrist part it’s definitely funky at first! I was struggling tbh until I realized I can kinda move the string to catch the Yoyo instead of trying to land the Yoyo on the string. Idk why but when I started thinking about it like that, my consistency went up! Maybe that helps! Idk good luck! Glad you’re enjoying learning the tricks! :call_me_hand:

I think I know what you mean. The issue I have been having is staying consistent with landing it in one fluid motion. Sometimes I will sometimes I won’t. Hoping the more I do it the more comfortable it will come. It’s such an awkward position to have your arm contorted in.

Agreed… it makes me feel like I have little T-Rex arms…

Yeah… this one is being tricky (no pun intended).
Plus pretty busy week at work, but will try harder next week! :love_you_gesture:t3:

Week 5 — Ian Loh’s Pacman

This weeks trick is a little shorter but very very cool! This is totally not necessary but feel free to work it into a combo of other elements if you want! Have fun and good luck!

Edit: Also this month is fixed axle February and if y’all feel like ditching the bearings, check out this awesome event hosted by the boomer club!

Filming this really underlined how much I need to work on keeping tricks in front of me. I got there in the end, though.

#4. I think my boaty has a hole. Not very flowy.

Late again :face_with_diagonal_mouth::face_with_diagonal_mouth:

Turtle trick: I love this! I messed up a little, and the bind at the end I failed too, but they failed it in the video too… :upside_down_face:

Dust bunnies: this one’s fun too
