1st parasail. Kawarau co-owner Russ friendly, informative. Lifted by sail while sitting on deck of jet boat. Lifted smoothly...easily. Exhilarating...soared far higher than expected. Below...boat looked like a toy. Laughed...shrieked when an unexpected gust of wind buffeted us. "Let's do it again."

Had the best time ever. Original booking time postponed due to weather. The Team @ Kjet Parasailing kept in regular contact. Then it was all on. Wow, what an experience. So glad we did not miss out. Great time, awesome Team.
