Chris Abbott

Chris Abbott is our Founder/ President and heads up our design team. Chris’ experience dates back over 4 decades with its origins in the UK with Waterbird and Paracraft Winch boats. Chris redesigned the original 16-panel chute in the late nineties and is improving this product to this day to become the most popular worldwide.

With regard to winch systems, Chris was the original designer of the system in the Paracraft winch boat in Europe and his experience has aided the development of parasail winch and launching in the parasail industry; many will remember the old hand launching on Premiums and the mast launch on Nordics. His experience has been of value to the industry and he will not sacrifice quality for price. All materials for the parasailing equipment and winch systems are manufactured in the USA.

Chris first moved to the US with Deborah in August 1995 to set up parasail/winch boat manufacturing for a Texas based parasail company before moving to Florida in February 1998 to start Custom Chutes, Inc. and has never looked back.
