Safety Tips

  1. Find a large and open area. You will need to find a large, open and empty space where you can safely throw your boomerang without losing it or accidentally hitting other people. In general, you will want an area where you have at least 35 meters (115 feet) of space on all sides. Football fields, soccer pitches, open park spaces and empty beach are all good options. Make sure there are not too many trees or bushes for your boomerang to get caught in.
  1. Watch out for weather conditions. Wind is one of the most important factors in the proper return of a boomerang. Ideally, you want a nice calm day, with winds between 0 to 4 m/s . Avoid throwing your boomerang in anything above a medium wind, as it will distort the path of the boomerang and throw it off course.
  1. Throw the boomerang at the appropriate Position As Specified on Step NO.3 of throwing instructions. One of the biggest mistake is to throw a boomerang tilted towards the right more then 30o or throw it like a frisbee (horizontally). In this situation boomerang can swoop straight up into the sky and dive back at you very steep & fast, which can cause serious injury to you or anyone nearby.
  2. Age Recommendation. Boomerangs are sports articles that should be used only by an adult or by youth under the supervision of an adult.
