What is Parasailing or Parashedding?
Parasailing, also known as parascending, is a recreational activity in which a person is towed into the back of a vehicle jeep or (usually a boat) while attached to a specially designed parachute. This is called a Parasail. This boat then moves forward, blowing the parascending person into the air. If the boat is strong enough, two or three people can Parasail behind it at the same time. The person parascending has little or no control over the parachute. A Parasail has six parts. The harness attaches the pilot to the Parasail, which is attached to the boat or ground vehicle by a rope. This activity is primarily a recreational ride and should not be confused with the sport of paragliding. Commercial parasailing is operated around the world.
Land-based parasailing is also included in the competition sport in Europe. In a land-based parasailing competition, a Parasail is pulled behind a 4 wheeler to a maximum height and then leaves the rope and flies to a target area in precision competitions. The game was developed in the 80s and has remained a very popular game ever since. The first international competitions were held since the mid-80s and continue to this day.
