Beginner’s Guide to Jet Skiing: Tips and Tricks

Jet skiing is an exhilarating water sport that combines speed, skill, and the open water. If you’re new to jet skiing, this guide will help you get started safely and confidently. Here are some essential tips and tricks for beginners.

Safety First

Always wear a properly fitting life jacket to ensure your safety in case of an accident. Take a safety course to understand the rules of the water and how to operate a jet ski. Avoid jet skiing in poor weather conditions. Calm, clear days are ideal for beginners.

Familiarize Yourself with the Jet Ski

Read the manual to understand the controls, functions, and features of your jet ski. Practice starting, stopping, and idling the jet ski before heading into open water. Stick to the beginner areas and avoid high-traffic zones.

Proper Riding Technique

Mount the jet ski from the rear and maintain balance by keeping your weight centered. Use both hands to hold the handlebars firmly to maintain control. Lean into turns and use your body weight to help steer the jet ski.

Start Slow

Begin at a slow speed to get a feel for the jet ski’s responsiveness. Once you’re comfortable, gradually increase your speed while maintaining control.

Turning and Maneuvering

Start with wide, gentle turns and progressively move to sharper ones. Always look in the direction you want to turn, not at the handlebars or the water.
