    I took a walk out to the beach today, and to my surprise they were having a zorb roll! For those unfamilar with what zorbing is, it is a huge inflatable beach ball, hollow in the center which is then pushed down a steep incline. This wasn't a traditional zorb, as there was no hill and the contestants had to 'leg it' to the finish line.

    This event was sponsored by Fruju, and all I have to say is Fruju Girls Rock!!! :thumbsup: :love: :cyclops:

    The last race they had the fruju girls in the zorb orb and hosed them with cold water. I can't post those pics here because they be a bit too racy (sorry mdowdy).

    Unfortunately when I asked a Fruju girl if I could zorb with her, I only got a dirty look (and not the invitational kind). *sigh* But it was heaps fun taking photos!!
