jet ski

jet skiMy favorite way to enjoy my holidays at the stunning Myrtle Beach vacation resort is climbing a jet ski and going on an adrenaline-filled excursion along the Atlantic Coast. Jet skiing enables me to enjoy all the beauty that this South Carolina coastline has to offer while enjoying my favorite activity at the same time.

Any time summer approaches, my mind switches to anticipating another fun-filled summer. However, even for a serial jet skier like myself, there is always a bit of preparation for the expedition. Whether you are renting a jet ski in Myrtle Beach or you own one, you need to put it through a number of checks before you hit the waters.

The following are some of the checks that you need to confirm before you start jet skiing:

(1) Gas tank

At Action Water Sportz, the staff always ensures that the fuel in the gas tank is fresh and that no areas of the tank are clogged. However if you plan on using your own watercraft, chances are that it may be a while since you last checked the fuel tank. You might have to empty the old fuel in the tank and add fresh fuel. Fresh fuel helps unclog any clogged areas in the tank.

(2)What to wear

You are definitely going to get wet. This means that you may need to wear a swimsuit and also carry a towel. The open ocean makes the sun’s rays more powerful. This calls for sunglasses, sunscreen and probably a hat. If you intend to capture images of this beautiful holiday spot, you will need a camera that is waterproof.

(3)Where to jet ski

Personally, I recommend Myrtle Beach. If you are looking to let loose completely, this calm and expansive holiday resort is the ideal place. You will also get to take advantage of the help offered by the friendly staff at Action Water Sportz.

(4)Learn then ride

If you are going to Jet Ski for the first time, you are going to have to learn how to operate a jet ski. Fortunately most jet ski rental companies give jet skiing lessons for those who are new to it. Once you get accustomed to the Jet Ski, you can then enjoy your ride while taking care not to get into any mishaps with other holiday goers.

(5)Spark plugs

Jet Ski spark plugs are always vulnerable to moisture. If the jet ski has not been used for a while, chances are that this area may have developed rust. To be on the safe side, check to confirm that this has not happened.

(6)Start early

Beginning your excursion early in the day gives you an opportunity to ride in calmer wave conditions. Morning hours are the most conducive for riding a jet ski rental in Myrtle Beach. You also get to ride more freely before the water is filled with crowds of people.


Remember to look out for obstacles. These include swimmers, sea wildlife and other watercraft. At the same time, remember that a jet ski is a powerful vehicle and a high speed crash may cause serious injury. Also remember you can enjoy a jet ski, even with its engine off. If you are looking for interesting sea wildlife, turn the engine off to avoid scaring the animals away.
