Boomerang Sport Information

World Record News!                Competitions!                   Boomerang Athletes!

 

If you are new to the sport of boomerangs we hope you find it to be a blast! Similar to a good golf swing, boomerangs require patience and practice to develop the required skill. Some boomerangs are easier to throw than others. For quick positive results, start with the easier-to-throw models, such as the Yanaki, Seagull, Phoenix, Everest and Triblader.

Sport and Recreation with Boomerangs

Today there are more than 12 countries with national boomerang teams, including the US. People are finding boomerangs to be not only a competitive sport, but also a great addition to mountain biking and backpacking, camping trips, kite flying, and just about any other outdoor activity. Boomerangs are a competitive sport with World Championship events every 2 years and a great hobby to just get some outdoor fun!

Lefty Rangs and Instructions

Instructions are written for right-handed throwers. Lefties will need to interpret them for left-handed throwing. For example, while righties throw Counterclockwise, lefties throw clockwise. Lefties must use “left-handed” boomerangs. All lefty boomerangs will have “Left-Handed” written on the back. Not all models are available left-handed.

Boomerang safety 101

Preparation: Fully read and understand the safety directions which come with your boomerang and on this website. Practice your stance and arm movements prior to your first throw. Eyewear: Always wear eye protection when throwing. Just as basketball and racquetball players need protective eyewear, so do boomerang throwers.


Space: Allow at least 70 yards in every direction and more space than that is needed for long distance MTA and other competition boomerangs. Be aware of people, even if they appear out of your throwing area. Never throw at or towards any person. Empty athletic fields are usually ideal places to let your rangs rip some quality air!!

Wind: This is a wind game, and wind conditions have an enormous effect on the flight of a boomerang. An awareness of wind direction with each throw is essential if one expects to enjoy the sport of boomerangs. If the wind gets real gusty it is best to try another day as boomerangs are extremely difficult to control in high wind situations. You need very little wind to get a boomerang to return but throwing in too much wind can be dangerous.

2 separate orders. Satisfied with shipping and the product. Might just order myself one. Very pleasant folks on the phone. Appreciated their help.

great boomerang

A really cool boomerang. I'm a total beginner and was able to get it to return to me and catch it without taking more than a couple steps within 30 minutes of throwing it for the first time.

Works great. Can be difficult to see at night at times. Lots of fun

would not return

Could not get it to return. It was for my daughter and was a first boomerang for both of us, so it could be user error, but I have not been able to get it to return.

Decent

Not great quality. I purchased 2 boomerangs and they were completely different tolerances. Definitely not worth the price. Looks cool though, so theres that.

Big Man Boomerang

Works great!

I've only been throwing boomerangs for 3 months and have used 4 different models including the Big Man which so far is my favorite. I often throw in the middle of a football field which makes it easy to judge distance and the astroturf is easy on the rangs. It often goes out 40 to 45 yards before returning with the right amount of wind. Still unable to get it to come all the way back with no wind but being a newbie, haven't figured the technique yet. Last week the wind cought it and it slammed in to the aluminum bleachers 70+ yards away with a loud "ping!" I was worried I may have broken it but upon retrieval it only had a tiny ding less than a centimeter long which hasn't affected it's performance. It helps to tune the tip of the leading wing up in no or light wind conditions.
Thinking of ordering a lefty to save my right arm as I'm already addicted to the sport!

Had

Great gift. Looked really authentic aboriginal. Hope my grandson will persevere. Takes a little time to learn. Might order one for myself!

Beautiful boomerang!

Bought this for my son's 9th birthday and he absolutely loved it! It's the perfect size/weight for him and has great control. Very easy to use and the the craftsmanship is superb. Thank you!
