How To Throw & Catch

Also See Instructional Video Here

 
  1. Select a large, grassy space with no trees, people or any other obstacles within a radius of 45m/50yds.
  2. Calm conditions or light breezes are best, ranging from 0-5km/hr or 0-3mph.
    Do NOT throw in strong or gusty wind!
  3. Basic Grip: Hold boomerang tightly at either end with one or two fingers and thumb (flat side with label against the palm).
  4. Tilt 10 degrees off vertical: to the right for right-handers, to the left for left-handers.
  5. Stand facing the approaching breeze & turn 45 degees: to the right for right-handers and to the left for left-handers.
  6. Before each throw check the strength and direction of the breeze because both change all day!
  7. Aim at something in the distance just above eye level and throw forward over the shoulder, spinning the boomerang fast by snapping the wrist forward - not sideways!!
  8. Practise with concentration, develop technique, apply finesse rather than power and experience magical enjoyment!

Professional Tips

    • Mark a spot on the ground and throw from there every time.
    • If the boomerang lands too far left, throw that distance farther right on your next attempt and vice versa.
    • When the breeze is greater than 5km/hr or 3mph throw at 0 degrees or vertical. When there is no breeze tilt the boomerang approximately 30 degrees to the right for RH and to the left for LH.
    • Get to know a lot of boomerangs. Test throw different shapes, sizes and weights. Flight paths, speed, range and colours in the air vary from model to model.
    • Change your thinking when you change boomerangs because all are different.
    • Focus 100% to achieve great returns!
