Weird trick names


#1

Hear of a weird trick name? Heres two “strawberries and mustard” And “Fridges”

What a coincidence. I youtubed “yoyo tutorials” a few days ago and Strawberries and Mustard is one of the top ones. Fun trick.

Yoyo tricks have weird names as well as Jazz songs:P

One day, one day I’ll make a tutorial for “Giraffe snake bite on a windy day in Paris”.

Seriously though, the yoyo world is blessed with many interesting and beautiful trick names. Even standard ones, like “Green Triangle” are pretty cool.

I think it was Steve Brown who cleared this up some time ago? Eli was the guy who first started popping the yoyo up off the string - apparently he was only doing small hops, nothing like the Eli Hops we know today, nonetheless, it was the birth of something new.

Eli is an Aramaic word and it means “high” or “the high one” (it has the same meaning in Arabic and Hebrew) it’s usually used as a name. so Eli hop makes sense meaning the High Hop :wink: I know because I’m fluent in the language :smiley:

Edit: I think Boomerang is a weird name for a yoyo trick! but I guess that too can make a little sense.
