Watching the parasailing (parakiting) to get ready and fly up, up, and away was fun. It was a new experience of capturing the parasailing actions on a boat using my new lens.

Notes:

  • Parascending or parakiting is a recreational kiting activity where a person is towed behind a vehicle (usually a boat) while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that reminds one of a parachute, known as a parasail wing.

  • The manned kite’s moving anchor may be a car, truck, or boat. The harness attaches the pilot to the parasail, which is connected to the boat, or land vehicle, by the tow rope.

  • The vehicle then drives off, carrying the parascender (or wing) and person into the air. The parascender has little or no control over the parachute.
