How is zorbing invented?

Zorbing was born in New Zealand in the mid-1990s and appeared on the extreme sports scene in 1998. Right now it has become a worldwide phenomenon, and the players just need to simple ride inside a giant plastic ball on a grassy or snowy slope.

Who invented zorbing?

For Dwayne van der Sluis and Andrew Akers, the idea of walking on water was fascinating. That’s why the two friends set out to develop a zorbing ball that would keep standing people afloat. At the time, such balls were already in production, but had to be inflated and deflated as passengers entered and exited, which required time. Van der Sluis and Akers thought they could find how to solve this problem and that was design a ball within a ball.

 

The development of zorb balls

The idea of the double ball is to make the air remain between the inner and outer balls, and the rider will crawl into the inner ball. In this way, the ball is always inflated. Van der Sluis and Akers built a prototype, patented it and registered it as zorb balls. As they hoped, the ball enables passengers to walk on water.

 

But there are other defects. In open water, the rider inside a lightweight ball, one has little control over the movement or direction of the ball. So they decided to do it with plastic balls, strapping someone in there and rolling it down the hill. The inventors of zorb balls believed that the zorb ball could gain more attention because New Zealand is known for the development of extreme sports like bungee jumping. Akers and van der Sluis found two more partners and a business of zorbing was born.
