Imagine an extreme version of skipping rocks, and you’ve got the general idea behind Waboba. The creator is Jan von Heland, who back in the 1980s envisioned a ball that could skip across the surface of water. Twenty years later, he engineered a sphere with a polymer gel center, which is what gives Waboba balls their extra bounciness, and he’s been winning over Wabobians ever since.
All you need is a little water to experience total fun. You can play catch with Waboba balls, or just enjoy skimming them across the surface of a puddle, pool or ocean. We’ve never seen anything like it. Waboba balls bounce high, rebound fast, and skip incredibly far.
Jan’s original ball, the Waboba Extreme, works great on open water, such as oceans, lakes, rivers, and even puddles.
