Zorbing now wins more attention from different kinds of people, specially those who are enthusiastic about extreme sports. The safety of zorbing has been tested and ensured since this weird sport was invented and now most people will not consider it as an extremely dangerous sport.

 

Fun facts about zorbing

No matter whether you have tried zorbing or not, you may think that you might have known much about it, so here are some fun facts about zorbing you may not familiar with.

Its origin

The origins of this extreme sport are a bit of a toss up. Official records indicate that zorbing originated in New Zealand in 1994. Andrew Akers and Dwane van der Sluis have created transparent inflatable spheres that people can enter, which they call the zorb. With the help of two other investors, they created a company. However, there is controversy surrounding the invention of zorbing due to the existence of early prototypes. In the 1980s, a group of extreme sports enthusiasts created a giant sphere with two suspended chairs inside it. The first prototype actually dates back to the late 1970s, when the ball was created by French architect and inventor Gilles Ebersolt.

 

Guinness World Record related to zorbing

There are even Guinness World Records for zorbing and coincidentally, they all happened in New Zealand. On November 7, 2006, Keith Kolver became the fastest human hamster as he rolled down Mount Rotorua at an incredible speed of 52 kilometers per hour. Another world record was broken at Paengaroa on the same day, when Steve Kemp rolled 1,870 feet in one run. Hong Kong also set a world record for the most skipping events.

 

Although the origin of zorbing is still arousing controversy, there is no doubt that zorbing provides most of us a way to have a unique experience we never had before. If you want to pick a zorb ball for yourself, Kameymall can be your top choice as most zorb balls from it have a one-year warranty.
