I'm sure this isn't new, so who do I attribute this to?

That's a good question.  In Miracle Card Changes Marlo dribbles the deck onto the table holding back a double but he does it with a break.

Good catch, Bulla - I don't use a break. I've just learned over the years to do a single, double, or triple lift while dribbling the cards.

I know Gregory Wilson does this, and it's on Double Take, but for the life of me I can't remember if he takes credit for it or just teaches it.

I have no exact reference for you-- but I know the move has been common for decades.
I know that because I've seen people do it and I was doing something similar in the 1980's.

I know I've seen something similar in The Card Magic of LePaul called The Snap-Over Double Lift (p.73) although it's more of a side dribble.

Nice, Sam!

A cursory search of Magicpedia and the Genii archives produced no quick answers as to origin or credit. I first saw the technique demonstrated by Paul Diamond back in the mid-80s, but it has no doubt been around even longer.
