It’s time to have fun again, and that’s mean…
We are back to Marriott Phuket! :D
There are plenty of activities that can be done in the resort.
One of the activities is Water Zorbing!

Here is how it looks like…

First, the person enter this huge transparent plastic ball while air being pumped inside till it formed full solid sphere.

Then the sphere with the person inside slowly pushed to the swimming pool.

This is where the fun begin!

Balancing the position inside the Zorb Ball can be quite tricky, especially when it placed on the water surface.

So many of them fell head over heels trying. The key to maintain the posture is to spread your legs and arms wide while moving inside the ball (Water Zorbing).

As you can see, this game is not only for kids but can fit adult as well.

Looks like being adult has its advantage. They learnt faster and able to spread wider to maintain their balance.

These are the correct posture inside the Zorb ball.

At first I was tempted to try this as well, here are five top reason I am have not tried it:

  1. I was alone.
  2. I was with my monstrous camera (70-200mm f2.8 lens mind you). Leaving it unguarded would be unwise.
  3. That made me the only photographer capable to capture this moment.
  4. I can’t get rid the though of  how much similarity I will be inside the sphere compared to some rodent family inside the pet shop. (Ratty, this might be the answer for your water phobia :P)
  5. I love you guys too much to missed a chance of sharing this awesome Zorb ball game. Would you agree with me? Please? :)
