Zorbing is the latest extreme sport from New Zealand. It involves rolling around in a ball or zorb three meters in diameter. It requires no more skill than a hamster running in its wheel as centrifugal force keeps the zorbonaut pinned inside the zorb. Although zorbonauts roll downhill at speed of 50 km per hour, the air cushioning inside means they do not risk hurting themselves too seriously. Zorbing
