Mexican Duck Pond Yoyo Trick
In this video, I am going to teach you how to do the trick Mexican Duck Pond. It looks like this:

Before you learn this trick, you want to make sure that you know how to do your basic Chopstick, and also that you know how to do a Gyroscopic Flop. Both of those tricks are essential to learning this trick. To start off, what we are going to do is we are going to do a double or nothing around our wrist. So you throw it around your wrist. That second pass goes over your index finger like normal. You are just in a double or nothing but with the string around our wrist. What I like to do is take my throwhand and actually hook my index finger around the string. That gives me a little more control over the string and adjusting its length helps with landing the chopstick mount. What we are going to do from here is stick out our middle finger on our opposite hand, unmount the yoyo so the string is over that, and if you stick your thumb out, you will notice that there is an area that you can mount a chopstick right over. If you look at it, you will find that you are in a chopstick mount underneath a double or nothing. I will show you that one more time, a little bit from the side. So we go over our wrist, we dismount, do our chopstick, and from here what we are going to do is we are actually going to take our middle finger on our opposite hand we are going to let the string off of it. Take our index finger and stick it in front of that string, into the loop, just like this. Then we are going to roll the yoyo towards ourself, missing all of the strings, just like that. Then from here, what we are going to do is, we are going to stick our fingers in, and if you tighten the string, it will cause it to gyroscope. From there you can let all your fingers out except for your index finger. Take your throwhand, let the string off. Unroll the yoyo away from you two times. That sets you up to be able to bind. Once you put it all together, that is how you do the Mexican Duck Pond.

So, once you have got this trick down, you will find that you can actually perform the Gyroscopic Flop from a few other types of mounts. For example, you could do it from a Houdini Mount. Once you get into that chopstick mount there, rotate it around, perform the gyroscope. In this case you only have to flip out one time and bring the yoyo back to your hand. There are other mounts that you can experiment with, as long as you can get into that chopstick formation, you will find that you will be able to do the gyroscope. So practice it, get it down, experiment with different mounts, and that is Mexican Duck Pond.
