Parakiting (Hawaii) for WPC New
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.
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.
