Photos: Zorbing rolls onto Burnham-On-Sea beach for the first
were the unusual scenes on Burnham-On-Sea beach over the weekend
when the sport of zorbing came to the town for the first time.
Zorbing, also known as globe-riding or orbing, is the recreation
of rolling inside a giant ball made of transparent plastic.
A steady stream of willing 'riders' jumped inside the orbs and
were then able to propel themselves along the sands between the
jetty and Pavilion.
The spectacle was watched by families from the sea wall steps.
The attraction was supported by the Town Council and was run as
part of Burnham's celebrations for the Queen's 90th birthday.
