The sport, also known as “parakiting” was developed in the early 80’s.  The sports lover is towed into the air with a parachute attached by a rope to a motor boat. At the start of the trip, thanks to the force of the air made in the parachute, the traction allows the person to gain altitude. If the boat used is powerful enough, it is also possible to do the activity at the same time with two or three people. The height you reach when parasailing can be changed at will at any time, increasing or decreasing the distance to the water by modifying the speed of the boat. During the flight, the person has no control over the parachute. Parasailing is suitable for all ages. These sports are now widespread at the largest seaside resorts in Sicily, in particular Trapani, Palermo and Catania.
