A time warp is a yoyo trick that you can do once you’ve mastered the around the world.

The time warp is basically an around the world, followed by a backwards around the world – all in one motion.

Simply throw an around the world, then whip your hand around and to a backwards around the world. Then catch the yoyo.

This video will show you how to do this trick. It’s easy. If you can do an around the world, you can do a time warp. It might take a little practice to get the backwards around the world down pat, but you should be able to do it with ease.

A lindy loop is like a double trapeze. In fact, it’s not like it, that’s exactly what it is.

When you throw a lindy loop, you’re going to start with a trapeze and then follow it with another trapeze.

This yoyo trick is not to be confused with a double or nothing. There’s no multiple wrap around motion like the one you’ll see in a double or nothing. When you throw a lindy loop, you throw a trapeze, and then flip the yoyo over again so that it’s another trapeze, then double it off the string and back to the palm of your hand.

This video will show in you in real time and then in slow motion. If you’ve got a trapeze down, throw a lindy loop, and add a little flare to your yoyoing.
