The breakaway is a three crack pattern that adds a horizontal sweeping crack to the end of a regular or overhead Fast Figure Eight. The breakaway has a nice even rhythm and is a great way to quickly change planes. Because the third crack in the breakaway is what makes this trick distinct, that single crack is also sometimes called the "breakaway crack."




How To

  1. Begin with a regular or overhead Fast Figure Eight
  2. After the second crack, pause momentarily and lift the whip slightly
    1. The thong should come up slightly underneath the handle
  3. Once the thong is in position, swing the whip horizontally in front of you, to execute a Sidearm Flick
