In this article I will try to present you with some advices on how to ride a jet ski. Although, riding a jet ski is easy, what you need to know well in advance are some of the situations that you might encounter on your trip to the Elaphiti Islands.
Before you start riding this “cool” thing called jet ski we will have to brief you on several important information and rules. The first rule is to be cautious at all times. It is very important to keep that in mind and not to get carried away just by the thrill of the ride and forget that there are other drivers and riders on the sea also. The second rule would be to bring with you everything that you might need. Imagine yourself going mountain hiking. What you would do for this trip is prepare a bag with all the accessories that you might need, you would bring with yourself good shoes, probably a long stick to support your weight on your way to the peak of the mountain, maybe a hat also. The same this is with a jet ski ride. If you decide to go on a longer trip, for example, several days with jet skis then you must take a bag full of accessories, and sunscreen is a must. We would also advise you to bring glasses or goggles for your jet ski rides. One big rule also is not to drive at night. Therefore, good planning of your trip is a must. We will help you with this. We have successfully planned hundreds of trips and to have a good plan is also very important. This plan also must include the time of your departure and arrival to a desired point. The reason for this, again is safety. You don’t want to drive a jet ski at night. One of the most important things when driving a jet ski is to create awareness for various situations. For example, you might want to pass around a fishing boat because it is on your way or it is simply going slow. What you must do in this situation is to use your best judgment and common sense to be at a far away distance from the boat not to cause a threatening situation. You also must be aware of the sea boating rules, but just to be aware of it. Just like in regular car traffic, there are also rules on the sea. We will tell you the most important things to keep in mind which of course you will easily remember. Now you see, that although virtually anyone can learn to drive a jet ski because it is so easy, unfortunately, small kids are prohibited from this activity simply because they do not have the motor skills developed which are necessary to make decisions for a serious activity such as riding a jet ski. One more thing, it is also good to bring your deck shoes with you because when the water is splashing it will help you have your legs much firmer attached to a jet ski.
