Anyone ever gone parasailing?

I know a lot of people believe that anyone who frequents this site has no life or interests besides rollercoasters & obviously that's not the case. For example I like to do a little fishing & enjoy hauling *ss on my ATV. I would try golfing, but don't really want to destroy a golf course all that much.

I do like to try new things though & one thing I have considered is parasailing. It looks like it'd be fun & it's one of those things that not everyone will try. I like doing things that some consider adventurous or even crazy. I find it makes a good ice breaker in initiating conversations. I've gotten a lot of mileage out of my Skycoaster & bungee jumping videos even though I didn't like bungee jumping at all. The Skycoasters were cool though & I'd do another. Has anyone ever tried parsailing? What's it like?

Parasailing is something that I've always wanted to do but have never had the chance to do it. It looks so cool.

I have ridden Skycoasters and I bungee jumped off a hot air balloon before which was cool. But never have I parasailed. Maybe some day. I also hope to go sky diving soon.

I tried Parasailing this year whilst on the RCCGB USA Tour on Lake Erie when we were at Cedar Point. They had a 200ft line and 400ft line. Which is basically the same line but stop it at differant lengths I went for the 200ft option but when I was up there I was more or less on the same level as the top of Millenium Force which was an amazing view to look at and also looking over the rest of the park which was pretty awesome. It was very peacefull up there and quiet and I would certainly recommend it.

I went parasailing down in Florida and I guess you could say I stayed up for about 20min it was exhilerating at first then its actually kind of peaceful and calming until your heart starts pounding because it is time to land in that ocean and well I will leave the rest of the excitement for you

Never parasailed, but did ride in an ultralight airplane...see "powered parachute" thread above!

Never been parasailing, but it looks like fun. They do it over the harbor at Avalon (Catalina Island), and since my brother lives there, I can do it sometime during a visit.

I found this old thread and I still haven't gone parasailing.

I had a chance this past week, but skipped again. It seems to be the story of my parasailing desires.

I have tried to get into golf, and on a spectater basis I'm there, but while my chipping game is nothing short of gold, my putting and my accuracy while driving has a whole lot of work to do. I have a strong drive, but it's strongly inaccurate while my putting is struggling to get to Happy Gilmore level.

What does golf have to do with parasailing? Can someone please explain.
