Photo detail

The Steamboat-based footbag company, World Footbag Association, designs footbags and tries to raise awareness for the sport. Its office in west Steamboat features some of the first footbags ever stitched together. Often times, they were produced with little more than sand and some fabric from the back of a couch. Today, the company builds footbags with more than 100 different panels and packs them with everything from plastic pellets to steel ball bearings.
