Science

You turn to the left naturally riding on a bicycle if your weight is put on the left. The blade of the boomerang is twisted to the right. The air hits the blade and flows to the right side. The force to the left side is made.The boomerang is rotating, so upper blade air flow is fast and lower is slow.It means that the force of upper part is strong and the lower is weak. It makes same mechanism as the bicycle. The boomerang flies in circle and returns to you.
