Rumble This hilarious footage shows us just how challenging it is to successfully pull off a powered parasailing session. Footage shows the unfortunate moment when a man trying parasailing for the first time fails to relax, resulting in one disastrous takeoff. This parasailing student should take several more classes before he makes for one successful takeoff!

Footage shows a man standing on a beach, all geared up and seemingly ready to takeoff, having the parasail parachute behind him. As the man is preparing to takeoff, he instantly loses courage and fails to relax, hence stopping the process and ending his parasailing session with an epic fail!

Apparently, this unfortunate guy got more than he bargained for when he signed up for a parasailing experience. This hilarious video was captured on camera for us to share a good laugh and reconsider before we engage in this extreme sport!

Many times, parasailing is mistaken for paragliding. The main difference between paragliding and parasailing is that parasailers are attached to a vehicle, usually a motor boat, that generates enough momentum and connects the parasailers to safety, while paragliding is a flying sport using a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft called paraglider.

In parasailing, the person is towed behind a vehicle, usually a boat, while attached to a specially designed parachute called parasail. There are two types of parasailing: aquatic, performed over water using a motorboat, and terrestrial, performed over land using a jeep to tow the parasail.

Unfortunately, in this video, the man fails to run efficiently and gain extra jolt of speed, therefore he slips and fails to takeoff. Instead, the man falls in the water and his adventure ends up in complete fail!
