How To Do Eli Hops

  1. Always touching the string
    • You’ll start with Trapeze. Then when you perform the hops, you want to make sure your non-throw hand index finger is always touching the string.
  2. Control the height
    • As you hop the yoyo off the string, you can control the height of each hop with your non-throw hand, guiding it along the string. And the closer your hands are together with each hop, the higher it will be.
  3. Repeat and bind
    • Repeat the hops as many times as you like, then do the Sidestyle bind to get the yoyo back to your hand.


  • Shoot the yoyo up with non throw hand
  • Move hands together to maximise the height
  • Your hands should touch
  • Land the yoyo back by pulling hands apart
  • Push on a string with your non throw hand to bring yoyo back on Trapeze

Most Common Mistakes

  • Not moving your hands together
  • Yoyo moving only few centimeters up
  • Yoyo does not land on Trapeze but falls down
