I bought a parachute about 6 years ago.....that thing is SO COOL!!! You have to have a ski boat to launch it.......offhshore boats are too slow off the line.

Read around ..ALOT of lakes, river and boating havens are outlawing them. Because of a few fatalities and serious accidents..no doubt on human errors, but you can't convince the law
