Airfoil & Lift
The air travels faster across the top of the airfoil as compared to the air below because the distance is slightly greater above; this difference in air velocity and relative pressures is what causes Lift or an upward force on the boomerang wing thus enabling it to turn. Then gyroscopic precession takes over. See below.
