Common Injuries

There are no laws or regulations for Parasailing companies, so there is an inherent risk when choosing to partake in the activity, and for this reason it is important that you do your research before choosing a company.

Most Parasailing injuries occur as a result of a fall, faulty equipment or bad weather conditions. Because a persons legs and feet are not protected when parasailing, difficult landings or strong winds could result in strains, fractures and broken bones.

When a Parasailing accident happens, the sustained injuries are usually quite severe. Luckily, accidents dont happen very often they are rather rare, in fact. If injuries are sustained, these are the most common:

To avoid Parasailing injuries, check that the company you choose has long been established and has received favourable reviews. Also check the weather forecast prior to partaking in any Parasailing.

Parasailing Equipment

Parasailing requires specific equipment. The parasail itself is what characterises the activity. This specially made parachute is aimed to be more stable and efficient in the air than a regular parachute used to jump out of airplanes. Because the Parasailer has no control over the parasail, it is essential that it remains stable. The parasail, like a regular parachute, is also developed to slow down the descent.

The Parasailer is dragged behind a vehicle and as such gets lifted into the air. That vehicle is almost always a boat, but may also be a car or other land-based vehicle.
