You’ve just purchased your new jet ski or got your jet ski rental. Now you want to do some of the fun things you can. Perhaps you are still researching.
This guide will help you in any way that I can. Let me show you how to get the most from your time out there.
These are some ways to have fun when jet skiing: Jump Waves
You’re right, it’s true. It’s a lot of fun! There are two ways to jump waves on a jet ski.
To get deep water waves at low speed, head to a quiet beach.
Big cruising vessels should leave behind a high but deep wave. These vessels leave an incredible wake, which I love to explore.
Pro tip: It’s dangerous to go out alone. When riding waves, you should also wear your safety gear such as a helmet and gloves.
Jet Ski Rental and Fishing
Riding jet ski rentals North Myrtle Beach SC has become very popular in recent years. Sea-Doo has created a unique model for those who use their skis to drop lines in the water.
Jet ski fishing is a solo activity. It’s still a lot of fun. We have a detailed guide and a list with fishing accessories.
Tow Tubes and Waterskiers
Here is where the real excitement begins! You will need a stronger ski (i.e. You can tow tubes with a more powerful ski (NOT a Sea-Doo Spark). The Spark can tow tubes but only at very low speeds. It’s also quite draining on the slow engine. Because there’s less drag in the water, they can easily tow skis and wakeboarders.
There are many tubes that you can tow. Maximum 2 people per tube for 3 children. There is not much room on a jet ski for rescuers. Legally, you can only have three people at once.
Race Your Buddies
Your buddy will probably get a jet ski next week, so if you have one, your buddy will likely get one. Although it’s addictive, it can also be quite expensive. You can find true fuel by racing appropriately and tackling obstacles. ????
You should look for areas that don’t limit your speed. Even if there are no other people, some waterways can reach speeds of 25 to 40 knots. Keep it friendly, and keep it a safe distance from you both. Jet skis with no brake lights so it is difficult to see when a ski is slowing down after a wake.
Go Camping with Your Jet Ski
You can take your camping gear with you on your jet ski, and go on an overnight or multi-night adventure. This is a trend that’s growing in popularity. I look forward to it next weekend.
You can find a detailed guide here on how to do it.
It’s great fun to island hop with your jet ski in salt or freshwater environments. The low draft means you can get right up on the beach and anchor in place.
Here is where you can store your flip-flops and sandals. Use the front locker, and remember to bring your keys along with you when you travel inland.
Recently, I discovered that jet skis are used by some men to hunt. These vessels are very mobile and allow you to hunt deer, pigs, and goats in remote areas. It’s a good idea to pack boots for cross-country hiking.
Tow Surfers into Waves
You can find friends who are willing to go out and have fun if you feel bored. Jet skis are not allowed to tow big wave surfers in some states or jurisdictions. It is best to verify before you go. Some restrict their use to competition only, while others allow them to be used for any purpose.
Head Out Whale Watching
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on a whale-watching tour. Instead, you can use your skis and go out on the water to get as close as possible. It’s a game of persistence and patience that I have found. You might not see whales for days, but they may surface every 10 minutes at other times. Be careful and bring the DLSR camera.
We have it! There are many creative and fun ways to have more fun on your jet ski than just riding it along the waterways. The multi-functionality of the jet ski is amazing. However, it’s also a vehicle that can be used for other purposes.
