Know Your Ropes Flyer

A series of parasail incidents from 2006-2013 inspired the U.S. Coast Guard to identify common factors and help prevent future incidents and casualties. Most fatalities and injuries are due to rope failure. WSIA members can download this flyer to help remind your staff of proper rope management techniques.

Member Stickers & Certificate

Flaunt your WSIA status with stickers and certificate of your WSIA membership provided annually.

Parasail Operators Symposium

Hosted by the WSIA, this annual gathering educates operators on safety guidelines and best practices regarding weather, equipment, insurance and other risk management considerations. Now in its sixth year, this event is the only one of its kind and is supported by all the major manufacturers as well as the U.S. Coast Guard, FWC, NASBLA, NOAA, NTSB, FAA and ASTM.

Marine Safety Alert

This document serves as a reminder to owners, operators and crew members working on all parasail vessels to review equipment instructions and usage limitations.
