How to Do the Double Around the World Yo-Yo Trick

Learn how to do the Double Around the World yo-yo trick from 4-time US National Yo-Yo champ and 2006 World Yo-Yo champ Paul Yath in this Howcast video.


For this trick, I'm going to teach you guys how to do Double Around the World. I taught you before how to do around the world with one hand, but now I'm going to teach you how to do it with both hands, and different variations from it.

So, first you've got to master the basic Around the World. Going backwards and forwards with both hands, left and right. You want to practice going inside and outside, with both hands. And once you get that down you want to throw two Around the Worlds at the same time. And just concentrate on the motion, going around and trying to catch them. Once you get that down, you want to try to practice criss-crossing variations.

This one's a little more difficult, and takes a little hand eye coordination to time it right. So start with your left and go over your right hand. Left, go right over, left over. From Around the Worlds you can regenerate to a Reverse Around the World. You can also do pirouettes, turning your body. And there is also a very difficult trick called a Tangler you can do from Around the World. This one's pretty difficult, as if you mess up it will tangle. So that's Double Around the World.
