The worlds premiere source for parasail information
Modern Day Parasailing - The Brain Child Behind it all !
by David Carminito
Impassioned by the sport of (para-sailing) since age 15, Mark McCulloh of Miami Florida, became an accomplished parasail
inventor, motivational speaker and entrepreneur Mark is internationally recognized as the original inventor of most modern
day parasailing equipment beginning with the worlds first offshore parasail platforms which McCulloh replaced with the
legendary Winchboat tow vessel. Nothing revolutionized the sport worldwide and ensured commercial parasailing as a
viable business more than this invention.
His experience spans four decades of parasail equipment designs, innovations, and training techniques with a focus on
improving the safety of parasailing and the enjoyment of the experience.
McCulloh holds the distinction as being the most recognized parasail industry expert in the world, having testified before
both state and federal courts in every major accidental death and serious injury case in the US and surrounding territories.
Looking back McCulloh says he had little idea forty years ago of the impact his inventions would have on the commercial
aspect of the industry in general.
He is still surprised and still inventing !
