How to Get Started With Jet Skiing 0

Posted on November 17, 2020 by Martin Banks

Trying something new is exciting, but it’s essential to still prioritize safety. If Jet Skiing is something you’ve dreamt of trying, then seize the moment and start learning. Jet Skiing is a great activity to enjoy on a hot summer day. Just be aware that once you start, you might choose to make it a full-time hobby!

Here are five things to consider when getting started with Jet Skiing:

1. Prioritize Safety

Whether you are an avid Jet Skier or this is your first time out, you should always prioritize safety. Start by always wearing a life jacket when you ride. Passengers should also wear life jackets, and you should be careful not to go over the weight limit.

Remember to follow the safety instructions provided by the agency or tour group you are renting from. Pay attention to your surroundings and be mindful of other people in the area.

2. Learn the Controls

Every Jet Ski is different, so you must take the time to learn the controls. Find the throttle, practice steering and locate the emergency shut-off. Check to see if your model has a braking system. If so, familiarize yourself with it before starting.

Though at the time of his retirement many expected Pearson to easily breeze into the Hall of Fame, his enshrinement was derailed by changes to the game which artificially inflated receiver stats and made the numbers he produced during a time when wide receivers weren’t catching 100 passes a season seem inferior.
