    I would like to purchase a boomerang for a young man as a beginner item. He lives in the US so could you recommend a make that will return, is well made and not too expensive.

    While not the topic of this page, here’s a few of the major international places to buy from. Most have been around for decades, and all offer a wide range of boomerangs by a number of manufacturers.

    All of them ship internationally, so you don’t have to be in their particular country.

    Hi Jestoni

    No, unfortunately there isn’t a boomerang group, club or association as yet in the Phillipines, but one has started in Indonesia, which is your closest neighbour.

    Try searching for Boomerang Fans Club Indonesia on Facebook for contact information.

    We do hope you get a boomerang club started in the Phillipines, and eventually compete in the biannual World Cup!

    I am wanting to purchase an Australian made boomerang to give as a gift for a 12 yr old boy from holland. Where is the best place to buy one that’s not too expensive. I live in eastern suburbs. Also do they come with instructions on how to throw them correctly so they return.
    Thanks di

    Hi Di

    There are a quite a few very good makers in Australia who run businesses and have a website. Most of them operate online, one of which is Rangs Boomerangs located in Perth, WA. Google “Boomerangs for sale” and you should come up with a list of results. They often provide you with a catalogue of kids boomerangs to select, which include pictures, like eBay. Have a browse and ensure that the boomerang comes with your preferences, that it is a returning boomerang which comes with instructions.

    Basic instructions are:

    1. Never throw a boomerang side-arm or flat like a frisbee. You must keep the edges vertical when you throw it.
    2. Throw at about 30-40 degree angle from oncoming wind with the wind coming toward you. If you are right handed, throw 30-40 degrees to the right of the wind, and if left handed, at the same angle left of the wind.
    3. Throw the boomerang directly ahead at shoulder level. Some boomerang designs like a little bit of an upwards trajectory, which means throwing slightly above shoulder level, though most designs like to be thrown straight ahead.
    4. Don’t throw boomerangs when the wind gets too strong, otherwise the boomerang gets blown away or becomes a flying missile, which can be dangerous. The best wind is between 3-5 knots. No wind at all will require a light boomerang or one with wide aerofoils for lift. Stronger winds require heavier boomerangs with thinner aerofoil sections, and you can spoil the aerofoil sections deliberately by placing rubber bands around the blades to create drag so that the boomerang stays down.

    Good luck in finding a suitable boomerang for your 12 yr old boy.

    Dear Guneet

    Come down for a throw with some of WA’s best boomerang throwers at Southern River fields, Gay Rd Gosnells each Sunday week. The boys are currently in training for the Boomerang World Cup, which will be held in Cologne, Germany July 2016. Next training session will be held Sunday 13th September.

    Just bought a boomerang from Boomerang Craftsmen Australia for a friends grandson who wanted a genuine Australian boomerang. I’m disappointed that I now have to lie to them both when I found out it was paid for in US dollars and might be made there too. Please reassure me that the item I purchased in good faith is made in Australia?

    The souvenir shops are good for finding a boomerang, but ultimately. the best place to look is online. Try Rangs Boomerangs Australia. They offer a big collection of boomerangs and all of them are guaranteed to return if thrown correctly, and come with instructions.

    We have bought authentic boomerangs in Australia. We met an Aboriginal guy in Tom Price (near Karijini NP) who makes them himself. They are beautiful. His name is Clinton and works in the social center of the town.
