THE THROW

NEVER LAID OVER FLAT      the throw

NEVER LAID OVER FLAT

The boomerang should be thrown about 10 degrees off the vertical.

Throw it forwards and upwards like a DART towards the horizon, using a fast spinning vertical motion.

Use a snap of the wrist, spin counts more than power!!

THE CATCH

Thown correctly, the boomerang will return to the thrower from the left side (for right handed boomerangs) or right side (for left handed boomerangs). Aiming for the middle as it hovers down, clap hands together catching the boomerang!
