  • Short Summary

    Fun in the sun - paragliding, water-skiing and speed boating.

  • Description

    Colour.

    Location of events unknown.

    Man suspended from a parachute is towed through the air above the sea. He is attached to a speed boat. Title calls this "parakiting" - better known as paragliding? Quite a long sequence - eventually he comes down into the water. We see the paraglider swimming towards the speed boat. All this must be shot from the air. The water looks very green. Seascape. The parachute is loaded into the boat.

    Aerial shots of two speedboats travelling very fast through water. Camera zooms in and out. Various shots of water-skiers being towed behind speedboats. Shot from inside the speedboat of two water-skiers following behind. They hold hands. One falls into the water.
