This is the most basic mount in frontstyle and probably the first a new player ever learns. It is the basis of tricks such as Braintwister and Skin the Cat.


A great way to practice the Over Mount and Under Mount is the trick Over and Under.

Instructions

TIOverAndUnder1

Step 1: Throw a Sleeper. Let the yo-yo swing towards you...

TIOverAndUnder2

Step 2: ...against your free hand index finger...

TIOverAndUnder3

Step 3: ...swinging around it...

TIOverAndUnder4

Step 4: ...and up into...

TIOverAndUnder5

Step 5: ...the string. Now give a lttle slack with your throw hand, allowing the yo-yo to pull the string with it and...

TIOverAndUnder6

Step 6: ...hang in the resulting loop.

TIOverAndUnder7

Step 7: Cushion the swing...

TIOverAndUnder8

Step 8: ...and you are in the Under Mount.

TIOverAndUnder9

Step 9: To dismount, swing the yo-yo away from you, while pulling up the string with your throw hand...

TIOverAndUnder10

Step 10: ...catapulting the yo-yo out of the string loop...

TIOverAndUnder11

Step 11: ...and, rounding your index finger, to the front.

Possible continuations are to have the yo-yo return like from a normal Sleeper, do a Ferris Wheel Dismount (see below), or continue into an Over Mount.


Ferris Wheel Dismount

TIFerrisWheel1

Step 1: If you have a responsive yo-yo, this is a very flashy way to dismount. Coming out of the Under Mount...

TIFerrisWheel2

Step 2: ...pull the string upwards...

TIFerrisWheel3

Step 3: ...to catapult the yo-yo out of the string. The yo-yo has to gather a lot of momentum to...

TIFerrisWheel4

Step 4: ...continue downwards...

TIFerrisWheel5

Step 5: ...away from you,...

TIFerrisWheel6

Step 6: ...and upwards. Unlike a Forward Pass, the yo-yo is rotating clockwise.

TIFerrisWheel7

Step 7: Bring it back by tugging on the string...

TIFerrisWheel8

Step 8: ...and sling it...

TIFerrisWheel9

Step 9: ...over...

TIFerrisWheel10

Step 10: ...and around your wrist.

TIFerrisWheel11

Step 11: Unlike Loop the Loop, the yo-yo does not flip around here, but starts spinning counter-clockwise.

TIFerrisWheel12

Step 12: From here on the dismount works like a Forward Pass,...

TIFerrisWheel13

Step 13: ...with the yo-yo going forward,...

TIFerrisWheel14

Step 14: ...up,...

TIFerrisWheel15

Step 15: ...and returning...

TIFerrisWheel16

Step 16: ...to be caught from below.

Alternatively, you can add a few Loop the Loops before catching the yo-yo.
