A few starting tips -
1- Look for an open space to practice. Boomerangs are sensitive to wind, style of throw and can land unexpectedly and can hurt.
2- Each boomerang has one side curved and finished surface and the other is flat surface. When throwing a boomerang, the curved surface should be towards your face as boomerang will turn in the direction of curved surface. Please ascertain if the boomerang you have is meant for right handed or left handed throw.
3- Never throw a boomerang horizontally like the regular Frisbee. A boomerang is held vertically with a slight tilt away from your face. You can get the prefect angle of tilt by practice. The general thumb rule is that boomerang should tilt 10-15 degrees from the vertical.
4- A well designed boomerang will follow the returning trajectory when thrown with right degree of tilt and rotation. You must practice with slow throw and get the right amount of rotation by flicking wrist to add rotation to the device.
5- It is very tempting to try to catch the returning boomerangs, but be extra careful as boomerangs are known to land with unexpected pace and path. If at all, you must catch the boomerang by sandwiching the boomerang between your palms.
