Walking On Water – The Aqua Zorbing Sport

Since the classic zorbing craze began, several variations and inventions have been developed which incorporate the basic concept of the activity. One of the variations is known as aqua zorbing. The options for this type of zorbing are endless if it involves water. You can do water zorbing, which is done by adding water to the inside of the orb. Another extremely popular method includes floating in the orb on the surface of water. The trend has been taken to pools, oceans, lakes, ponds, theme parks and some malls even insert a pool of water for this purpose.

There are several types of orbs or spheres used for this kind of zorbing experience besides the standard land zorbing one, which is also known as the classic dual layered zorb ball. There is a ball made of a single layer of PVC or TPU, both best suited for aqua zorbing. The third type of orb is a cylinder-shaped device with two layers of plastic, just like the classic zorb. In addition to the normal aqua activity, the zorb can also be pulled by a jet ski or a boat for a heightened adventure experience.

Many people, especially those who don’t like swimming, will appreciate the fact that they can avoid getting wet during the experience as no water is able to enter the orb. It has all the enjoyment of walking on water without any of the wetness. What more could you want from aqua activities?

Amusing Sports – Playing Soccer In A Zorb Ball

When you hear the term “zorb football/soccer”, you might picture a group of people running around and kicking or pushing a giant orb around with someone inside it. While that would be a hilarious sight, it is surprisingly not what this term means. Instead, it is an entertaining game where the players’ upper bodies are dressed in a zorb suit (think Bubble Boy) while they run around after a soccer ball.

The game is more casual than a serious sport, allowing the players to collide and bounce against each other while attempting to steal the ball. It is not only heaps of fun, but also hilarious to watch or participate in. Zorb soccer does not require professional soccer abilities, only a zest for fun and a group of friends. This is a favorite for events like birthday parties, team building functions, outings with friends or a family gathering. What makes this activity more exciting is that it does not require a zorb park or company providing a service for you to join in on the fun. Anyone can purchase zorb balls for private use whether at home, on a sporting field, at a party or function venues.
