Parasailing is an aquatic activity that is also called parasailing, or even parascending or parakiting, although the latter two terms are less common. It is not a sport as such, since skydivers have practically no control over the movements to be performed, so good physical shape is not required to carry out this activity.
Its operation is simple: one or two people equipped with a single parachute are towed by a speedboat, to which the parachute is attached by means of a winch and a large cable. In this way, the speed reached by the boat causes the parachute to rise a few meters as if it were taking off, and the people attached to the parachute do the same.
