I am Nemunas Pakalnis, a boomerang maker from Lithuania (in the European Union).
I have learned how to make returning wooden boomerangs from my father (Dr. Saulius Pakalnis), who has perfected the craft of boomerangs over the last 20-plus years. I remember when I was a kid how much fun it was to test my father’s new boomerangs in parks and open fields. For me, it was always surprising how a wooden stick with no modern technology could fly, make a big circle in the air and then come right back to me.
Since 2012, I have been making my own returning boomerangs. I remember the first time I made a boomerang that actually returned. That moment remains one of my fondest and most satisfying memories. Since that date, I have made more than 3,000 boomerangs.
Manufacturing a high-quality wooden boomerang is an intensive task that requires a lot of time and precision. Only the perfect balance between weight, aerodynamic airflow and rotational speed can guarantee that a boomerang will accurately come back to the thrower.
After the successful launch of my website, I started to receive great interest from international customers. Clients from all over the globe have provided me with the enthusiasm to paint the boomerangs with unique and individual art. The paintings are mostly done by professional artists. One of the main artists is my wife, so I guess boomerang manufacturing will be a family business for a long time. :)
