Boomerangs can be difficult to learn, but learning to throw safely will not only reward your experiences with more fun, but you will become better throwers too.

Safety Tips!
  Only ONE Boomerang should be thrown at a time. Make sure that anyone else standing around is at least 50 yards away in all directions and that they are paying attention while you are throwing.
  Children should only throw when there is an adult present to supervise.
  Never throw your Boomerang at or to someone.
  Always throw in large, open spaces; free of trees, buildings, cars, people, and anything else your Boomerang could hit or get stuck in. We reccommend an open area at least the size of a football field of open space in each directions (100 yards x 100 yards is ideally recommended and much more space is needed for some competition boomerangs).
  Competition level boomerangs should only be thrown by experienced throwers. They require more space to throw in as they are capable of going up to 200 yards away. They often spin faster and can be dangerous for a novice thrower.
  Never throw your boomerang in windy or gusty conditions, especially while you are trying to learn how to throw. A still, mild wind is ideal.
 
Protective Eyewear should be worn when throwing or catching boomerangs.
  Never catch your Boomerang at eye-level. Always wait until the Boomerang is below shoulder height before attempting to catch.
 
Never throw your Boomerang laid out flat like a frisbee. The Boomerang should always be held nearly vertical on release to avoid dangerous diving and swooping flights.
 
If you are just learning to throw, don't throw too hard at first. For most Boomerangs, a half-powered throw is usually enough to get the boomerang to return. As you get more experienced you can add more power to your throw to get longer flights and ranges.
