Parasailing

Parasailing is fun, adventurous, and a relatively cheap way of trying an air activity. Beginners don’t need any special skills to get a taste of the adventure.

Overview - Parasailing

Parasailing / Parascending is a recreational air activity where the person is towed or winched up into the air attached to a parachute.

(One, two, three, four or five people can parasail at the same time going up into the air)

The parachute’s canopy is held up to catch the wind, the tow boat moves slowly forward and the towline tightens, so the canopy lifts gently into the air - Flights end with a gentle landing.

Stand up paddle

Stand Up Paddle surfing or SUP is a new emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage.

The history of the sport says that SUP evolved from surfing, when surfers started to use paddles to help them to cover long distances. Today SUP is an independent sporting activity with its own traditions, rules and disciplines.

The main advantage of a Stand up Paddle, that anyone can do it on almost any kind of a watercourse:  sea coasts, lakes, rivers and canals. Paddlers navigate river rapids and ride standing waves as well.

Now at Crest you have an opportunity to try this new amazing sport. Nothing gives a better kick start for one’s body and mind, than a good early morning paddle session along the coast.
