sorry no pictures of the landing. but all you do is get the parasailer to about 15 feet above the water, and pull the throttle back to neutral and then put in reverse just briefly so you do not drag them under water.

That last picture reminded me of when we would fly our fixed wing kite. Every damned boat on the lake would follow us around to the point where you were afraid to turn around.

I got a parasail about 6 years ago, don't use it much but when we do get the chance to fly it behind our Mastercraft it is a lot of fun.

My wife and I parasailed in Jamaica while on our honeymoon. It was great! Where did you find a parasail? How do you "reel" them back in?

I start them off a beach and land them in shallow water.
