Tricks Andre invented


Not sure if i posted this in the right section, but i just wanted to know what tricks, if any, that Andre teaches in his videos that he invented himself. I read that he invented hour glass and ladder escape, i wanted to know if thats true, and if he invented any others.


Hour Glass and ladder escape are true.

He also invented And Whut if I’m not mistaken.

I believe Gyroscopic Flop is his as well.


Thumb grind and variation of it.

Nope. Doctor Popular. The one and only.


That was Jason Lee


Not contradicting anyone here, but if he invented “hour glass” why does he say in the video I think it is called hour glass because of the shape here?

It seems like he would say, I named it hour glass because…

Pretty sure he invented double suicide and grind trough green triangle.


I wondered that same thing


And whuit is jason Lee, Hour Glass is some other guys.

Plan D, and Ladder Escape I believe.


Plan D for sure, though I question ladder escape.

He invented ladder escape. He said it himself.


We need andre, the yoyoexpert himself to reply on this thread.

I mean, it is his birthday. Cut the guy a break :slight_smile:


sorry, i just realize it… ;D


It is always hard to say you ‘invented’ a trick as odds are someone else did something similar messing around at some point, etc.

With that said though I did ‘invent’ and name the following tricks on the site:
Ladder Escape
Hour Glass
Plan D

I was one of the first to be able to pull off more then 10 Gyroscopic Flops in a row but didn’t invent the trick itself - that was Doc Pop.

I popularized thumb grinds but again wasn’t necessarily the ‘first’ person to ever do them on earth. :wink:
