Modern models are capable of hitting 70mph at full throttle, making them an incredibly fun machine.
They can be dangerous if they are not ridden properly or with care. We’ll show you how to ride a jet ski rental in Myrtle Beach, always keeping your safety at the forefront.
Guide To Riding A Jet Ski Rental
Wearing a flexible swimsuit and a life jacket is the first step to keeping you safe. you could fall into the water, you should be wearing a life jacket and flexible clothing that you can swim in.
The next thing you will need is a cord or kill switch. The cord loops around the wrist and is connected to the ignition. The kill switch is pulled if you fall off the ski. This ‘kills’ the engine and brings the jet ski to a complete halt.
When renting a Jet Ski, make sure to get a complete safety briefing. This will help you remember what you need to do.
Jet Ski Driving Instructions
Relax and sit slightly forward as you ride your jet ski. You can do this to allow yourself some slack when riding through the waves.
Your shoulders will also be more stable, and you won’t have to worry about them being jerked from the controls.
You should start at a slow speed until you feel comfortable with the controls. Don’t use full throttle before you are far enough away from shores, boats, and other watercraft.
Remember that the stopping distances can be long on water. Always leave plenty of space for this.
Keep an eye out for hazards
Personal watercraft and boats can be dangerous, especially if they are moving fast. Respect their space, and don’t get too close.
Remember that if you are anywhere near a buoy, it will have ropes attached. These may be connected to another buoy via a chain at the surface. If you suspect this, slow down and take a careful look at the situation.
Find another route if the water is murky or you cannot see a rope.
Never try to reach a beach any other way than the designated watercraft lane.
Docking Your Boat
Reduce your speed as you approach the shore. As you get closer, cut the throttle completely. When it is safe, coast in and then hop off.
