The History Of Zorbing

Aug, 03, 2022

441 Browses

If there is one thing true in human history, it is that people have always found new and interesting ways to entertain themselves. Extreme sports are just one of the different games and fun entertainments that have been invented over the years and the latest one is zorbing.

Interesting name and history

Zorbing involves people getting into a plastic zorb ball like a human hamster ball, and pushing it forward by running or walking. You may think it is weird but it is actually fun and has continued to grow in popularity over the past few years.

 

Prototype

Besides the funny name, zorbing has an interesting history, too. The event of zorbing started in the 1980s. Taking inspiration from the plastic hamster balls that have been around for years, a sports club in England has created a plastic ball that can do the same for human, but the concept was eventually scrapped.

 

Later in New Zealand, however, Dwane van der Sluis and Andrew Akers later invented a plastic ball that humans could stand on, much like a human hamster ball, and they decided to call the invention a zorb ball. Zorb balls feature one ball inside another with a layer of compressed air between them that absorbs the impact. The idea of zorbing is to roll down a gentle slope with people inside the giant plastic ball and try to keep balance while the speed increases. But then people found that it was way difficult to keep the balance when the zorb ball is rolling down. Zorb balls are also water-adapted. If sealed properly, people can literally walk on water inside the zorb ball. It became especially popular around the world.
