The throwing motion is similar to throwing a football. Let the boomerang fly out of your hand. Do not try to initiate the turn of the boomerang with your throw, it will turn itself. Pick a point in the distance that is the correct angle off the wind and throw. Remember spin is king!! More spin and snap... less muscle!!
Use your good judgement as to when you should attempt a catch. If the boomerang is coming in at you, do not attempt a catch. Only go for the catch when the boomerang is hovering in towards you. Before long you will be doing trick catches every throw!
