Made in the USA, the Para-Sail is a parachute that goes up! It is designed to be towed behind a boat or 4-wheel drive vehicle. The passenger snaps into the para-sail's comfortable harness, signals the driver of the tow vehicle, takes a few steps -- and soars into the air! Depending on the length of the tow rope, your para-sail can carry you hundreds of feet into the sky.
Ride the wind under the para-sail and you'll never again be happy just being a "landlubber." Grin to the thrill -- and the beauty -- of soaring hundreds of feet above your favorite lake, river or ocean. The colorful para-sail sparkles overhead while you enjoy a birds eye view in a peaceful and serene world.
The ride is breathtaking and thoroughly enjoyable. The para-sail is stable so the passenger enjoys the ride without having to steer. And landings are easy: the tow vehicle slows down and the rider is gently lowered to earth.
The para-sail has been popular at resorts for years. Now weekend sportsmen are discovering that towing the para-sail is as easy as it is exciting. Flying the para-sail is an aerial adventure that the whole family will enjoy. Get a para-sail this year!
Parasailing activity. How would it be? The crew of the boat leads you up to the launching pad. As you sit down they attach you to the line. Suddenly the boat surges forward and picks up speed and you feel the line pulling out. Then in the blink of and eye you're pulled off the back of the boat and your journey to the outer limits begins. What a feeling as you slowly climb to the full length of the line. Below you the boat churns up the blue waters and the wind flows through your hair. What a feeling, soft and quiet, with sweeping vistas of everything all around you, as you're sailing, parasailing. All of a sudden the boat appears to be getting closer and closer as each second goes by, when like a feather falling onto the floor you land up right where your adventure began. It's that easy!
Anyone can do this - the young, the old, anyone. No experience required. Once you soar above the waters you will want to fly again and again!
Good tips. Remember to wear something that you won't care if it gets wet. Sometimes the parasailing companies have a tendency to do what they call "dipping the wick", which is getting you a little wet. Well at least up to your knees at any rate. Don't be alarmed as it does feel good and the water is very warm. The parasail boats will also allow one non-flying guest aboard the boat. They offer to take your picture while you're in the air, their camera has a very good lens and they have been doing this for a while so the pictures are very good. The pictures are great!
The best times to fly are in the morning and large groups will have to be split up into different boats. You can fly either tandem or single the cost is the same and the weight restriction for a tandem is 350 pounds. A single must weight at least 120 pounds; children are required to fly with an adult.
