My Body Zorbing Experience Movie
I like making videos about all type of different things that I do. I film a lot of stuff it is my passion. I don’t usually post it on the Internet, I just keep it to myself, it’s what I do.
So one of my recent movies that I wanted to do for myself was one about body zorbing. What is body-zorbing, your ask? Well, body zorbing is this sport where you strap in a big inflatable transparent ball made of plastic, while your legs are outside. When you do this you practically become a giant inflatable ball on legs. Looked pretty funny from the outside, but from the inside it’s cool.
I’ve seen people do a lot of different types of body zorbing. Some of them do body zorbing football. Teams of 4 to 5 people get dressed in these inflatable balls, and then they started chasing this soccer ball on the football field. Many of them even forget they’re actually playing football and they forget about the objective, which would mainly be to score goals in the opponents goal. They rather just run around like fools and bump into each other’s body zorbing balls. They just fall around and roll around and tumble looking silly like turtles on their backs. They kind of remind me of that because it’s quite difficult at times to get back on your feet once you fell down while body zorbing.
Other people tried other body zorbing scenarios. Because come to think of it there are quite a few of them. One is body ZORBING sumo, where do opponents have to push each other than their inflatable balls out of a circle. Another one would be bodyzorbing bowling, where some people play the role of bowling pins and each of them takes turns in trying to push down the other bowling pins and so on. And I’ve actually also seen some people simply racing on a body zorbing track. Pushing and bumping is admitted and they try to push each other out of the race track. Course they fall but their inflatable balls keep them safe and prevent them from getting hurt.
And that’s where I got my idea for my body zorbing movie. I bought myself an inflatable ball and I would feel myself doing different stunts while inside the ball. I did so in my movie that you could do different activities such as driving while inside the body-zorbing ball. Or playing hide and seek while inside it. But then I attempted something a little bit more different. When doing body zorbing you should stick to the let’s say normal scenarios. But me I decided to show that the body zorb is so much fun that you could even use it in water. So I went to a stream that is close to my place and try to get some footage there of me floating in the water while inside the body zorb. The footage was fine, but when I tried to get out of the stream I slipped on the wet rocks and fell pretty hard. Thank God my body was inside the zorb ball and when I fell it’s totally prevented me from getting hurt. The problem is I would have fallen facedown on one of those pointy rocks and would’ve probably injured myself quite bad. But the body zorbing ball prevented that. I was actually very surprised to see that the inflatable ball was so sturdy and well-built that it didn’t even puncture on the sharp river rocks. But from now on I will just stick to to the usual body zorbing scenarios.
I advise everyone that wants to try body zorbing to do that in order to have fun and to prevent any possible harm. This sport is safe as long as you do it in a safe way. It’s all up to you. Body zorbing can be extremely fun, but it also may be not completely safe if you don’t follow common sense like I did. In conclusion, go try body zorbing at your local amusement park, you won’t be disappointed.
