The body harness we manufacture is very comfortable for the flyer to ride in, yet very durable. We manufacture several sizes: small, regular, XL and XXL. Other custom sizes can be built to fit any body size. Usually the regular sized harness will fit about 75-80% of the population. The body harness is a “seat” type and is much like a swing in a playground. The flyer sits in a comfortable sitting position enabling him to hold onto the parasail risers. The webbed straps which attach to the chute and the stainless steel clips are a triple reinforced. The seat webbing is 6” wide and is high test sling webbing. The seat is padded for extra comfort. Wear points on the harness are reinforced for extra strength and life. The waist strap should fit snuggly around the flyers waist and is adjustable to fit most everyone. The body harness should be fitted first around the flyer with the life jacket over it. Never fly without a harness and always use a USCG approved life jacket.
USCG approved 3-buckle nylon shell with insulate fill. Life Jackets are available in several sizes, child, small, medium, large, x large, xx large. Always use life jacket while parasailing or water sledding. Parasail harness should be fitted snuggly first with life jacket over harness.
Passenger Tow Bars
Our Passenger Tow Bars are anodized aluminum padded bars with clips allowing two riders to sit side-by-side while in flight, rather than front to back. The bar is limitedly adjustable for different weights of flyers and very well built for durability and long life. The clips we use are all stainless and suitable for salt water application. It is easy to install and very user friendly. Not for recreational use.
Commercial Parasail Tow Line
We offer 3/8” and 7/16” double braided, coated nylon towline called, “Flightline”. The coated version is for all types of winch systems: line guides and pulley blocks in high and low usage/wear applications. 600' and 800' towline lengths are available. We do not sell Spectra Rope which is not recommended for parasail applications. Our Flightline has an excellent track record and has been on the market since the early 90’s. Not for recreational use.
Recreational Parasail Tow Line
Three-strand, twisted, ½ inch polypropylene rope. It floats and is bright yellow for added visibility in the water. It is available in any length with 200, 300, 400 or 600 foot lengths most popular for leisure use. New chutes come packaged with 300 feet and 600 feet in the recommended maximum. If you think you may want more towline now or later, let us know, as we can recommend towline lengths so you can have a choice. Shallow waters may need longer towline. With smaller boats and days with 10-15 MPH winds, use 200 or 300 feet. On great days (winds under 10 MPH) or if you want to add an optional quick release, you may want a 600’ line. Use only a bowline knot to secure the towline to the boat and the chute with no metal hardware attached to the line, chute or boat. Use only recommended towline as the towline break strengths can vary when purchased over the counter at hardware stores. Not for commercial use.
Recreational Tow Bridle
For use with the parasail or the inflatables. The tow bridle is a webbed polypropylene strap with stainless steel rings and attaches the boat to the towline. Make sure this is attached with a bowline knot when tying the rope onto the tow bridle. This tow bridle floats and is stronger than a conventional ski tow bridle. Ski tow bridles are not recommended due to insufficient break strengths. Boats with outboard motors must purchase this tow bridle to be able to fly the chute as the tow bridle attaches to each side of the transom (goes around the engine) and pulls equally from each side. Not for commercial use.
Parasail Quick Release for Leisure Use Only
It's reversible. You can attach at either the chute end or boat end. It allows quick disconnection of towline from chute or towline from the boat. A quick release is recommended at the boat end for those just learning the sport as it allows for immediate release of the towline. It acts as brakes for the boat as it immediately stops the tow, if flyer stumbles on take-off, thus reducing the chance of dragging the flyer on the ground. Once experience is gained, it can be moved to the flyers end to allow disconnection over water so the flyer can float freely down - “skydiver” style. Two quick releases can be used simultaneously if desired. The quick release should be removed or disabled from the chute if inexperienced flyers are riding. The quick release is not intended for chute end use by inexperienced flyers. Also, the quick release should never be used in a situation which would allow the flyer to free fall onto any obstacle or land. Extreme care and caution must be exercised when using the quick release and the quick release should never be released with tension on the towline due to possible whiplash of the line. All tension must be off the towline before release to reduce the chance of personal injury. If released under tension, potentially damaging recoil could occur and might harm the flyer.
Wind Speed Indicators
Wind speed indicators are highly advised to check wind speeds before flying. Several different models at different pricing points are offered. The Turbo Meter is very accurate. Wind speed indicators are very accurate, electronic wind speed indicator with 4 scales MPH, knots, feet per minute, meters per second. When held into the wind, the turbine spins on a sapphire jewel bearing and rotations are read by an infrared light beam for accurate friction-less readings. Lighted LSI (Large Scale Integrated) display accurately reports wind readings to .10 accuracy every 1 ½ to 2 seconds. Easily held in your palm and includes wrist lanyard and carrying case. Responds to lightest winds and reports gusts accurately as other higher priced wind indicators, three to four times the cost. Requires 3 AAA batteries and has pocket sized convenience. This is the most accurate hand held wind meter offered. Includes: Instruction manual, protective case, wrist lanyard Features: Exceptional accuracy, responds to lightest wind, weather and shock resistant, easy to operate 3 ranges: Miles per hour (0-99.9), Knots (0-87.9), Feet per minute (0-8790), Meters per second (0-44.8)
