Hi I'm new to spintops. I was wondering if there are any trick tutorials on the web, at the moment I know the spinner and boomerang and am trying to learn the trapeze ( so much easier on a yoyo).

Welcome to the sport and the forum, Alexandar.

Unfortunately,there are not yet many tutorials for beginners on the net.

Of the tutorials on my site, probably only corkscrew could be something for a beginner to attempt. It is here:

Pulp used to have several video tutorials for beginners (explanations in Spanish) but now I cannot find them. You may still want to look at his short demonstration of how to correct precession:

The Spintastics site has many spintop videos showing all the basic tricks, although they are not tutorials. But if you ask about a specific one we can try to help you:

Something I recommend if you are just going to learn (vertical) trapeze is to raise the hand and just let the top fall and unwind by itself. When it is about to reach the end of the string pop it in the air and try to land it on the string. After you can do that, slowly increase the downward push until you get a strong trapeze. (If the string is too long for your height to do a vertical trapeze, you will have to do a side mount).
