Parasailing Safety – What to look for

It is estimated that 3-5 million people go parasailing in the United States each year. While the Coast Guard does not have safety standards for these operations, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has made a video on what to look for before you go parasailing. The video covers weather, harnesses, ropes, and sails.
