    Jet Ski & Jet Boat Parasailing

    Our first run was a great success. Pulled a parasail behind my RXT for 10 miles from Pine Key to downtown Tampa. More to come...

    This was on a GoPro HD. We're still using the Playsports, but not as much. They just seem to drop too many frames.

    You can find'em on Ebay every now and then...Just be careful if you tow it with a ski. Depending on the wind you might need about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile in order to turn 90 degrees without rolling the ski.

    Ha, I wish it was during the week, it'd be a nice break from the exhilarating world of software engineering. . We actually went out right at 7 AM this past Saturday and it was completely empty. I was surprised that there weren't even any campers on the island. By 9 AM it was packed as usual though. Always some interesting folks over there!

    Yes... it's a pretty interesting place for sure. They'll definitely be some campers and a lot of action going on out there this coming weekend

    The RXT pulled the parasail well... plenty of power to lift the chute without any issue. I would only suggest an experienced rider attempt this as the chute could potentially over turn the ski. The Challenger being the pig that it is didn't have this issue. I didn't notice any difference between the parasail and a slalom skier when I was pulling it.
    This thing is a blast! Many good times ahead with this thing for sure!
