The Hop the Fence Yo-Yo Trick starts with a throw down.

Hop the Fence Yo-Yo Trick

The Hop the Fence Yo-Yo Trick is similar to Loop the Loop, except that the yo-yo is directed down toward the floor rather than out in front of you.

How to Do the Hop the Fence Yo-Yo Trick:

Step 1: Start this trick with a Throw Down.

Step 2: As the yo-yo returns to your hand, don't catch it. Instead allow it to "hop" over the top of your hand. Then, with a flick of your wrist, send it back down toward the floor. Keep "hopping." With a little practice, you'll be able to "hop the fence" for as long as you want.

Walk the Tightrope is not just a flashy trick -- it's also a way to wind up your yo-yo. Find out how to do the Walk the Tightrope Yo-Yo Trick on the next page.
