Boomerang


Request for Details


It’s fun to throw a Boomerang, just like Mowgli did. The unique body and curves of a Boomerang make it the only projectile that can fly parallel to the ground and defy gravity. In this Boomerang making and testing workshop, we teach you everything you want to know about boomerangs. Participate in this workshop to know about the physics, manufacturing techniques and throwing tricks of a Boomerang. It’s easy, it’s fun and rest assured you will have the time of your life while playing with it!
