How we do it

Boomerang takes its name from the idea of ‘returning investment’. Just like a boomerang, the key to business success is in the planning of the journey and Boomerang Business Solutions has captured this idea incorporating it into their training and business model; The Flight Path™.

Every boomerang, like every business, is different. For the boomerang to return to you requires skill, practice and planning. These are the fundamentals that make up our Flight Path™ model.

The secret of our success is all in the bespoke design, planning the right journey for your business, implementing the correct throw and catching the boomerang, the “return”.

How to throw a boomerang

Throwing a boomerang is easy. The hard part is making it come back.

Following the Flight Path™ model we will tell you how to throw the boomerang in just the right way to make it come back to you.

Remember, 80% of our success is in our attitude and 20% in our skill just like 80% of throwing a boomerang is in the wind.

Design

When designing a Boomerang you start from the centre and work out, this is the centre of gravity, you can put any design, shapes and colours on the Boomerang this is your vision.

After designing your Boomerang you need to find a large open space where you can safely throw your boomerang. The area should be twice the area of the boomerang’s range and be relatively clear of people.

Next choose your grip. There are two types of grip that promise the highest return rate of the boomerang; Cradle and Pinch.

Cradle

Grasp the boomerang like a tennis racquet with the flat side against your palm and your fingers wrapped around the shaped side with your thumb over them – so you’re making a fist shape. Then hold the boomerang as close to the end as possible to ensure maximum spin.

Pinch

This grip produces a better spin without losing any of your control. Firstly place the boomerang between your thumb and forefinger, making sure your thumb is on the curved surface. Next bring the boomerang back toward your wrist, around a 45 angle. Pinch tightly to ensure a cleaner release and better spin. This way also assists with the boomerang’s return.

Plan

Before throwing the boomerang you need to take account of the wind, which is a large factor affecting the proper return of a boomerang. The best flights are achieved in 0-5mph winds and it is suggested to angle the boomerang between 45 – 90 degrees to the right or left of the wind depending on which hand you use to throw with.

You can achieve the perfect angle by facing directly into the wind and then turning approximately 60 degrees to your right, if right handed, or left if left handed and throwing the boomerang in the direction you are facing.

Throw

This stage relies on elevation. You need to make sure you throw the boomerang horizontally up to 20 degrees above the horizon or by aiming for the tops of trees in the distance. Remember not to throw too high as the boomerang will naturally climb. If you throw it too high the boomerang will land behind you. However, if you throw it too low it will fly in front of you.

Return

The hardest part of the equation. If you have followed your Flight Path™ right through from the design, plan and throw stages then your boomerang should be spinning horizontally towards you. The easiest and safest way to catch the boomerang at this stage is by holding out both hands and clap them together on it.

If the boomerang doesn’t come back to you then you need to go back through the stages and evaluate what you need to do differently. Once you have perfected the Flight Path™ you can start to get adventurous and throw it between your legs or try one handed catches.

Have fun perfecting your Flight Path™ and enjoy your Boomerang journey!
