Tips For Riding A Jet Ski

If you’re new to the sport, then you should start out with these 10 helpful tips before riding a jet ski rental. Here are the basic jet ski riding tips you need to know.

  1. You have to know your boat-ed. In some states, you have to pass a boating safety course first before you can drive a jet ski and other personal watercraft.
  2. Climb on the jet ski and find the most comfortable sitting position.
  3. Put your hands on the bars and place your feet in the footrest.
  4. Before you turn on your water bike, you should have a lanyard around your wrist where the key in the ignition is attached. This is a setup is referred to as the kills witch cord. In short, if you fall off the jet ski, then it’ll be switched off because you’ve got the key with you.
  5. Switch on the ignition switch of the jet ski rental.
  6. Push the throttle in slowly. You can cruise around at around 10 mph offshore until you become comfortable to the throttle’s sensitivity.
  7. Once you’ve cruised to a spot that’s on a safer spot from the shore, past the heavy boat traffic and past obstacles, you can increase your speed. But you should always remain at a comfortable speed.
  8. Keep this steady and slow speed. Don’t forget to lean your water bike toward the direction where you can to turn.
  9. Don’t forget that jet skis require acceleration to turn in most cases. Keep the load centered and balanced so you can avoid capsizing.
  10. A lot of newbie jet ski riders want to stand up while riding a jet ski, but don’t be tempted to do this unless you’re already an intermediate or expert jet ski rider.
