COMMERCIAL / PRIVATE USE PARASAIL RANGE

Waterbird® Parakites are able to offer a wide range of imaginative parasails for the
Commercial operator or private Parasailor.

The new range of Waterbird® parasails listed below have up to 35% less line pressure against
the boat size for size compared to any other parasail available around the world.

This means as a commercial operator you can fly larger diameter Waterbird parasails in the
same wind conditions during your average working day. This option to fly larger parasails
everyday allows you the operator to fly double and triple rides far easier and more often than
you ever did before. You will also have the added advantage of more stability in higher winds
due to the increased diameter.

Larger diameter parasails create more lift for the same conditions so you will also see a large
saving in your running costs for the boat as the engine would be running at a lower RPM
in all weather conditions.

Lift and drag are two entirely separate factors to each other in the design/performance of a
parasail unlike traditional drogue parachutes that are designed for their drag characteristics
only.

Available in up to 16 UV protected colours giving you an unlimited choice
of design at no extra charge.

All parasails listed are made from either one of our 2 new high tenacity
rip-stop nylon fabrics unique to Waterbird®. Specifications for our 2 new fabrics are
on our custom made page together with the full colour range available.

All models are fitted as standard with our unique Quicktrim zipper system fitted to the rear side steering venting. This system allows the operator to simply zip out any bias that may appear in the canopy over its working life. We do not recommend the adjustment to any of the 16 shroud lines for the balance of the canopy as this can be detrimental to the performance of the canopy.

All Waterbird® Parasails are on average larger in true flying
diameter than parasails indicating the same number or size by
other manufacturers. Call, use our contact form or email for
info.


COMBI HIGH WIND ZIP OPTION
All models can be fitted for a small extra charge with a pair of salt resistant 2.5 metre long high wind zippers that can be opened or closed depending on the wind conditions. These unique design zips allows the parasail to operate in around 30% higher wind speeds for their size, meaning the operator can carry on flying the same size canopy in the stronger wind days without increase in line pressure to the boat but with added stability in the canopy due to its larger diameter for the flyers.

WARNING:
High wind zippers must always be fully open or closed.
Never open only one zipper at a time.

NEW for 2011

"G STORM" ADJUSTABLE TRI VENTING


All models from the 25 to the 38 can be fitted for a small extra charge with the all new “G STORM” adjustable tri venting system that can be opened or closed individually depending on the wind conditions or weights being carried. These unique adjustable clip vents allow the operator to finely tune the parasail to suit that days working conditions. The new “G STORM” vents are different sizes and shapes to each other compared to our normal G venting system which means the operator can adjust the parasail to work to its best for that days weather as they can open all 6 vents for maximum capacity or just the rear 2 vents (the largest of the 6) or just the centre 2 (second largest of the 6) to get that perfect performance.

 

A “G STORM” parasail combined with our high wind zip option will operate in around 20% higher wind speeds size for size compared to a normal high wind parasail option meaning the operator can carry on flying the same size canopy in the stronger wind days without increase in line pressure to the boat but with added stability in the canopy due to its larger diameter for the flyers.

WARNING:
G storm venting must always be adjusted in pairs on the canopy.
Never open only one vent at a time. .
