Boomerang Fan, a French company based in Vendée (western France), distributes a series of boomerangs mainly made of aircraft plywood.
Boomerang Fan is a major player in the history of French boomerang. In 2000, Michel Barré, then Manager of Boomerang Fan, called on one of the best French designers and throwers, Stéphane Hubert, to redesign the whole range of boomerang Fan.
The previous range was becoming old-fashioned ; so, it was urgent to update the whole collection.
Target reached ! This new collection of boomerangs is suitable for both beginners and experienced throwers.
Boomerang Fan uses up-to-date technological machinery, such as a 5-axis milling machine allowing them to make boomerangs digitally and thus, with great accuracy.
The original motif is printed on the boomerang and the finish is always perfect.
Stéphane Hubert also designed 2 pp boomerangs : X-Fly and Zebra 3, which allowed Boomerang Fan to widen its range.
Jean-François Barré is now in charge of Boomerang Fan.
Stéphane Marguerite's passion for boomerangs began in 1981 in his hometown, Laval in Mayenne, France, while attending a show organized by the local club. He has produced boomerangs ever since.
He first participated in a tournament in 1984 and later on, he became captain of the French team and the Canadian team, which has given him the opportunity to take part in many national and international competitions for the past 30 years.
In 1993, he flew to Montreal, Canada, where he created Wallaby Boomerangs, an eco-citizen workshop which makes handmade boomerangs from renewable natural resources like wood and bioplastics ; its aim is to make boomerang throwing popular.
In 2005, he came back to France and settled down in a craft village called Sallertaine (western France), now labeled "art craft town", and opened a new workshop. Its goal was to combine the practice of a healthy physical activity with design and traditional know-how, and thus promote eco-friendly consumption. Still, he never shut down his Canadian workshop where he stays and works from October to March every year.
The experience he gained in Europe as well as his taking part in many international competitions enabled him to develop a recognized expertise to design reliable and effective products. He constantly pushes the limits of design to meet customers' expectations, whatever their level may be. His boomerangs are approved worldwide and famous for their style and innovative design.
He commits himself:
- to guarantee high-quality products and to enhance the know-how of a French craftsman.
- to contribute to environmental protection by favoring natural resources and improving continually the ecological quality of boomerangs.
- to make consumers aware of the benefits of regular physical activity with an artless and simple thing.
- to make consumers aware of the benefits of regular physical activity with an artless and simple thing.
Peter created Loops boomerangs ; he comes from eastern European countries.
Peter is no expert at throwing, but he is an outstanding designer.
He is the one who designed the flagship of our indoor boomerangs : The roomloop.
Before the roomloop was created, there were other indoor boomerangs, but none of them were tuned/profiled and a minimum of aerodynamic knowledge (dihedral and angle of attack) was necessary to make them fly correctly.
The roomloop is a world innovation in indoor boomerangs for it requires no adjustment beforehand.
Peter travelled the length and breadth of Europe's greatest shows to sell his fabulous Roomloop, also available as an outdoor item in denser foam for small wind ; its name is the beach loop.
Peter is constantly brainstorming in order to create new original products ; he confided to me that his next innovation would be a folding boomerang.
For the moment, Boomerang Evolution is the exclusive French dealer for Loops Boomerangs.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
It started very early and very frustrating:
At the age of 12, 1962, I saw in a store a boomerang for 5,99 DM That was a lot of money and for
me the pocket money of nearly 2 weeks. I happily went to the field and spent a whole afternoon
trying to throw the thing 30 meters to run, throw, 30 m to walk to ......
I was met with the typical "Fakerang" of wood. Supposedly produced by the Finnish world
champion boomerang throwing (that never was).
So the boomerang came into obscurity for many years.
About 24 years later (I was already happily married with adult and 36 years for a year and a proud
father of a son), I worked at a youth center in Geesthacht as youth workers. Workshop focus was
working with young unemployed in a professionally equipped woodworking shop.
One afternoon came bursting in five Turks. In the hand, the magazine "GEO Australia Special." It
was all about Australia and of course an article about boomerangs was also there.
The boys were all excited, talking at once and I understood only as something like, "Hey, cool,
look, boomerangs! - Let us build some boomerangs! ".
I said, "Such a thing I bought as I where a child many years ago. - This does not function anyway! "
The guys did not give up, showed me a photo of a boomerang and so I sent for photocopying. They
should zoom the photo, so we had a presentation at large.
On the magnification was then to recognize that the piece of wood had a wing profile that the elbow
was limited. - Puzzle! - Therefore the thing you bought was not working as a child – it had no
airfoil, so could not produce a lift and logically neither fly nor fly back.
We built the thing done quickly, went behind the Youth Centre on the grass and I threw that thing
away hopeful. Crap! The boomerang flew straight for about 15 meters, and then chop with a little
twist to the right into the ground. After two more attempts, I gave up and wanted to throw the piece
of wood in the garbage.
Then the little seven year old sister of a Turk came and said: "If you want to throw away, you can
also give it to me, which looks so beautiful!" - Sure, I gave her the boomerang. The small girl took
it and just threw it.
I could not believe my eyes: The boomerang flew a beautiful circle clockwise and landed at our
feet. I was completely taken aback and asked the girl to throw again. And again it worked. At the
3rd throw I realized the crucial: The Small threw left! - We had copied an Australian left-handed
boomerang. An aboriginal boomerang!
Now it was easy. I built the thing just once, but reversed and a week later it was in Geesthacht its
integrity no longer safe, as many as boomerangs flew through the air.
Two years later I worked in Hamburg in a self-help project for unemployed youth and young adults.
The boomerang was at the workbench and here is my medium.
It was in this facility to bring the boys and girls to regular work.
It should not be a "game mode" and the young people should also be able to earn real money.
So I commercialized the boomerang. What I was in my first training (before I graduated and social
workers was) trained merchant?
This worked wonderfully and our initiative was called "The Boomerang project" because it
concerned project work in youth work.
This worked so well that it was the carrier scary because it supplanted all others in work and
Therefore, the sponsoring organization to scale back the project to amateur level decided - almost
into a craft course for those interested it.
Since I was not willing to play along and founded with three of the boys, the company "The
Boomerang project". The boomerangs we built initially at the weekend in the basement of my
Continuously grew sales until the weekend it was no longer sufficient. I went into my uphill on a
part-time position to operate the company further. - To live content not yet reached it.
That went so two years in which much happened: I "lost" one of my employee after another,
because they all came in under woodworking occupations. I was very happy because on the one
hand it was good for the boys to learn a trade and finally a permanent job with a fixed income to
On the other hand, it was also good because my company itself could not feed 4 people today.
On the other hand, it was very difficult for me. I was left with only the decision: boomerangs or
social work. I opted for the boomerangs and I've still never have to regret.
Today I along with my wife a house with a super great workshop in the basement and I can
boomerangs actually deny my livelihood.
Was very important for me that I did when I made the decision: had to make "boomerangs or social
work", Jörg Schlegel met. I thought I was a lunatic boomerang, but Jörg showed me that there's still
Jörg also encouraged me to step into self-employment. In the first year he has even worked on
weekends in the workshop - in addition to his job. I owe a lot to him and he became my best friend
and the most important.
From him I learned a lot back then and we were annoyed about that top throwers such as Volker
Behrens then made a secret of the profile of their boomerangs.
That was the birth of a new generation of construction plans, as they did not exist until then, the
Jörg and I on the former North German Championship individually sold to get money for further
investment in the workshop equipment.
And ... the birth of the two boomerang tree tapping "THE BAUMAPPE" and "THE BAUMAPPE
2", which dealt primarily with the wide aviation.
Public, we found through the "boomerang world" and the friendly, paternal support by Wilhelm
Bretfeld. - The me "crazy" the idea took to transfer the principle of the flight of maple seeds on
Boomerangs - especially in terms of MTAs.
It came then - after initial success - into oblivion, and after William's untimely death, I no longer
liked me deal with it. And quite honestly, I'm never the MTA thrower was.
Now, after 27 years I'm getting known all Boomerang interested in the world, in Germany the last
"dinosaurs," the boomerang produced on a large scale / can produce and have amassed over the
decades a vast knowledge of boomerangs that I like free and share with everyone.
The most important thing however is that the thing still gives me hell of a lot of fun!
Stéphane Hubert was born in Nantes , north-western France
In 1988, Stéphane started throwing boomerangs after watching "Bagdad Café", now a legendary film in the world of boomerang, in which we can see beautiful throws into the sunset.
This film came as a complete revelation to him and he started designing and making his first boomerangs.
Little by little, he improved, especially thanks to the local club's advice: Top boomerang.
Then Stéphane took part in his first competitions and he got positive results because, in 1990, he ranked 9th in the French tournament, which allowed him to enter the boomerang world cup in Perth, Australia : It was a crowning glory ! There he ranked 17th.
In 1992, Stéphane Hubert got good results in a row, as he won the French team cup and the French record of Aussie Round with 82 points.
Again, the same year, Stéphane created the now-famous Triboul, an exceptional boomerang the best world throwers will use in competitions.
It is a versatile and evolving item, beautifully shaped, which helps you go from beginner to experienced thrower.
Stéphane only used this boomerang, with subtle adjustments to the dihedral angle and the angle of attack, to compete.
In 1993, Stéphane Hubert became president of Top Boomerang, the club in which he started out.
From 1993 onwards, he ran many competitions and welcomed the best national throwers.
In 2000, Stéphane became Boomerang Fan's official designer, whose range was definitely old-fashioned.
This big project had Stéphane to redesign about 20 models meant for children and adults.
Stéphane also created 2 brand-new plastic boomerangs called XFly and Zebra 3.
For a long time, Stéphane dedicated himself to boomerangs and so he turned his passion into a full-time job by going from one market to another, along the west coast of France, to sell his production.
With his works of art and career, he remains a role model for any good thrower.
Though he is now doing another type of work, he still sells a few boomerangs during Christmas season.
My name is Thomas Patzer. I am from Germany and a teacher of sports and technology. Actually the best conditions to build and throw boomerangs.
My boomerang career began in 1985 with the construction of a wooden boomerang from a book by Günter Veit, who was so fascinated for me, that I immediately sat down with the German Boomerang Club in conjunction.
In 1987, I went for the first time on a boomerang competition, the German Championships. Then followed many years with many competitions such as Europe and world championships. A highlight was certainly the world championships in Hamburg in 1992. My team placed 3rd Place.
There have also been some German Championship titles in the disciplines Fast Catch, Endurance or CC and MTA in the years 1989 - 1995.
At that time, I built many wooden boomerangs to finance the many journeys through Europe. But everything needed much time and so I came up with the idea to produce a plastic mold.
After a year of development and many ideas the FUN was born in 1993. A beginner boomerang, which is easy to throw and catch. Also the price of the boomerang should be in the lower segment . From 1993 to 1995, I delivered the FUN in large numbers even to Australia. The then owner of the company "RANGS" Sam Blight had no Three-winger in the sortiment. In Australia, the FUN was named HELIRANG.
1997 followed the WAVE. Here I wanted to build a form which are made from all plastic molds on the market stands out. This is also done. Many people can not be classified as a boomerang to WAVE. Only when he flies and just comes back!
Incidentally, FUN and WAVE are identical to those of her arms, when placed together. The WAVE needed by its large triangular hole a bit more throwing power as the FUN, but it is a little more stable in wind. But that is quite as planned. The WAVE can also be used in competitions.
In 2006, I met the JBA members (Japan Boomerang Association) while competing in the world cup in Japan.
The JBA tries to encourage the development of boomerang throwing, in any kind of way ; for that, they have an exceptional tool at their disposal ; it is called the Skyrun.
Sports wise, the Japanese have improved considerably over the past few years and I am sure they will soon be standing on the podium at the next world cups.
Mark Legg started throwing boomerangs in 1983, at the age of 10. In April, the same year, he treated himself to a boomerang at the local art festival in Delaware, Ohio. After a few trials and errors, the first return flight was a magic moment... Mark has not stopped throwing since!
Thus, from the beginning, Mark was surrounded by the best world throwers (to those who do not know him, Chet is 12 times a national champion and 3 times a world champion and Gregg is twice a national champion and indoor world champion).
Chet often organized competitions and classes for local children to learn how to make boomerangs. Mark attended each event and soon, he started making and throwing his own boomerangs and, at the age of 13, he began to travel to take part in competitions with Chet and Gregg Snouffer.
After completing his studies, Mark left the world of boomerang for a few years and eventually returned to it permanently. From 1991 to 1996, this sport changed dramatically . Before 1991, competition boomerangs were mainly v-shaped and made of wood. From 1996 onwards, three-blade boomerangs appeared and performance improved considerably. Throwers used models made of bakelite, plastic, fibreglass or carbon fibres.
As years went by, Mark gathered information and greatly improved his knowledge of these new materials. He now masters the best techniques of the manufacturing process both for wooden and composite boomerangs. Since then, Mark gained a reputation as an art craftsman. He is now a member of the American boomerang team, 8th in world ranking, and the champion of the America's Cup, won in Ito, Brazil in 2005.
Mark created Leggacy Boomerang, which sells leisure boomerangs and, what is very rare, a range of high-performance competition boomerangs approved by the best world throwers.
