The next trick we're going to do is called black hops. This is a really cool looking trick, it's really good for a crowd, it takes a lot of practice. Let me show you what it looks like first. Black hops starts with a triple or nothing which is going three times around your finger and your hopping it up and down the string every single time like so. That's the whole trick right there, that's black hops. What you want to do, we're going to teach you the first part. The first part start with a triple or nothing like so. So instead of a double or nothing which is what we've been doing, you're actually going to go 1, 2 and 3 times around. You can do this trick actually as many times as you want. For black hops we're doing it three. So it starts with a triple or nothing, like so and what you actually do is pop the yo-yo up and land it onto the string. So watch me here, the yo-yo pops up and lands onto that string, then you're going to pop it up and land it onto a double or nothing and you're going to pop it up and land again on that top string. You pop it up on a trapeze. That's the first whole part to black hops, it's hard, it takes a lot practice, but it's not especially complicated. So it's a good one to just keep practicing, eventually your brain will just get it. So one more time you triple or nothing, you pop it up onto that string, you only want it to hit on one string too, I started hitting on two strings. Another thing that's good to do is try and space it out, you want your fingers to have a loop out here, a loop in the middle and a loop towards the front. The more spaced out you have it, the more likely you'll be able to hit it, you pop, pop, pop, pop. One more time this is part one of black hops, looks like that when you get really smooth and flowing. Practice the pops, just takes practice. One more time, that's part one to black hops.
