I had a fantastic experience. The instructor was great. Felt so very very confident with him. Even falling down , I had no fear. But, when they sail from a boat, you don't need to run taking off and landing. Is it possible to stand on something like wheeled platform and land on a moving platform so that people like me who can't manage such balancing are benefitted? This is only a suggestion and not a complaint. The instructor was brilliant. Thank you for making my birthday, 56th birthday a memorable one!

Hi Lochana, We are glad you had a fantastic Parasailing experience on your 56th birthday. Vikings Aerosports wishes you a belated Happy birthday...!! You are right, when you are Parasailing from a boat you don,t have to run for take-off as there is lot of breeze in the sea, the parachute is already inflated and ready to take-off. All you need to do is to strap yourself to the parachute and enjoy the parasail. But unfortunately on a land based parasailing, we have to inflate the parachute against the direction of wind by running 4-5 steps until you are in the air. Also we have to keep in mind that we do not have lots of open space in Bangalore, and the available runway in Jakkur Aerodrome in just 1 KM. And the idea of wheeled platform should totally be ruled out as it going to imbalance you even more.

Thank you for the feedback Rupal. Duration of Parasailing is totally dependent on your body weight and the wind speed & density as a combined factor. So that is how some times we have seen people up in the air for 5 minutes and few people for 2 minutes as well. But hope you liked the feeling of flying for that little time you were up in the air. Please feel free to call our helpline anytime for any conference. Helpline (Mob): 7259502343

About Parasailing

Also known as Paracending or Parakiting, this is one fun activity that every adventure junkie would love to experience. This fun sport activity involves a person with a parasail wing attached to them, towed behind a boat in most cases or even a moving car or a truck. Unlike paragliding, parasailing is a light sport that gets the person to have a fun experience. The boat acts as an anchor and the person who is parasailing drifts with the wind behind the moving vehicle.

The activity can be as fun, having more than just one person anchored to the same vehicle. There are also land-based parasailing where the anchor is a moving truck or a car. This fun activity has received quite an appreciation abroad that they have competitive parasailing games while still enjoying the fun!

As opposed to a water based parasailing, in a land-based activity, the parasail is made sure to be at its maximum height and then the tow line is released. The parasailer flies at an accurate speed trying to hit the target on the ground. This form of sport from the 80's is one of the popular sport forms that attracted a lot of attention at the first International competitions that were held in the 80's.

Recently there have been quite a few parasailing operations in India, that is seeing a rising interest and attention from a lot of adventure junkies and even people who are constantly looking for some new, fun sport things to do and to be able to do it differently.


Origin Of Parasailing

The first ascending and easy gliding kind of parachute was done by Pierre-Marcel Lemoigne in 1962. The ascending-gliding parachute was trade-named as parasail when Jaques-Andre bought the licence to manufacture more of those in 1963.

 1974 saw Mark McCulloh's launch of a self-contained Parasail along with a recovery vessel. This improvised version turned out to be the 'winchboat', setting a standard model for a Parasail Wing. Later, Brian Gaskin in 1976, created and tested a wide-winged canopy and named it 'Waterbird'. This design of Parasail, however, made better sense as it had facilities to harness a tow that can act as an anchor when the parasailer is sporting over the water. It was also in terms of safety measures that most parasailers shifted to the 'Waterbird'. In April 2013, the first ASTM parasail weather standard was approved.


Know-How's of Parasailing

Before you  get on with your fun adventure of attempting a Parasailing Activity, as a true sport, here are a few things to consider.

1. Just like every other fun activity that involves being up in the air, parasailing has it's own tricky business too. It is good to have a check on the surrounding areas where the activity is taking place.

2. The Parasailer needs to be familiar with handling the parasailing wing, especially with being able to control it and to be able to balance while they are up in the air.

3. It is totally a light-hearted, fun activity. However, avoiding alcohol before attempting the sport would help one have a clearer picture of being in right senses while still enjoying the sport.

4. While there is no exact age limit for Parasailing, usually, the activity takes the body weight under consideration. You might want to check with the respective sport organiser regarding the details on the weight limit. 

5. As a fun sport, kids will love being up in the air and gliding down too. But it is always necessary that an adult accompanies them on the activity, considering their safety. 

While all this is necessary, an experience of prior parasailing isn't necessary! You can either choose to touch the water while parasailing or not. Either ways it is a fun sport that you wouldn't want to miss out on, if you are the kind of curious sport, always on the lookout to try something new!
