Parasailing is a type of active recreation and fascinating entertainment. This "attraction" is extremely popular. The famous resort of Montenegro Budva is no exception.

Brief description

The parachute is attached to the water vehicle: it can be a boat or jet ski. Due to the fact that the transport is moving, the parachute floats in the air.

The height of the parachute will depend on several points: the weight of the “passenger”, the presence of wind, the power of the boat. An important factor is the length of the rope, with which the parachute is towed. It is considered optimal to climb to a height of 60 m, while the length of the rope is about 120 m. Please note that it is not recommended to rise to heights above 150 m.

A boat or water scooter must be quite powerful and able to reach speeds in the range of 50-60 km / h.

Extreme entertainment lasts an average of 5 minutes. It combines a walk, and free flight in the sky, and a surge of adrenaline. For the first time this kind of extreme was proposed in the 60s of the last century.

Usually the start occurs from a boat with a gradual unwinding of the towing cable. Lifting of this kind is much safer than starting from land when a boat moves against the wind with a cable completely unwound.

Parasailing advantages

If you are new to parachuting, then parasailing will be an excellent option for training. And this is an air walk, which allows the tourist to get acquainted with the sights of the resort from a bird's eye view.

For this kind of sport you do not need to go through a special long training. But for the safety of the participants, the organizers explain the basic requirements and rules of behavior in the air.

Requirements, restrictions and safety

There are restrictions on weight and age on the rise of a parachute. Some organizers have modern equipment that can lift one person or a group of people with a total weight of not more than 200 kg. But in most cases the weight limit is 110 kg. The number of "passengers" involved in the flight, should be no more than three.

There are also contraindications for such a flight:

  • pregnancy;
  • alcohol intoxication;
  • epilepsy;
  • disorders of the musculoskeletal system;
  • cardiovascular diseases;
  • respiratory diseases;
  • hypertension.

It is strictly forbidden to take a parachute into the air with a strong wind, because the parachute moves against it. Rush should not exceed 8 m / s. With a stronger wind there is a high probability of injury. It is necessary to fly in clear sunny weather.

To ensure that the ascent and descent were as safe as possible, there should not be any obstacles on the water surface and the land surface.

Parasailing equipment and equipment must be of high quality, have the appropriate certificates and licenses, and be constantly checked. This is the only way to ensure the safety of people in the air, as well as reduce the likelihood of injury in the process of ascent or descent to zero.
