How many times have you been out to the lake or the ocean and seen many people jogging on a jet ski and enjoying their lives and wishing you were out with them? They are very fast and maneuverable, and there is always plenty of splash to keep you cool on a hot day! They are probably the number one serious beach rental toy in most resorts around the world, and for good reason. Driving them is fun!

There are different types and models of jet skiing (also called waverunner), some of which I am going to review. Personally, I have had a Sea-Doo GTX for several years and I may be a bit biased, but I consider them the best and most popular brands. The company definitely knows how to market and today they have a large share of sales. Sea-Doo has been around for a long time and they are very famous for their ease of use in the industry and they are also very easy to care for and maintain. Any Sea-Doo-related problems are often relatively minor and usually cheap. Of course, there are always exceptions to any big machine, and you want to treat it as much as you can so you can enjoy the benefits of being out in the water for years to come. Seriously, I’ve seen people go out and split a new wave, just because they want to make it as fun as possible every time they try to have fun. These are people who will probably sell the same waverunner in a year or two because they have abused it and it does not work well. So when buying a second hand jet ski it is best to really learn everything you can about its history.

Speed ​​and maneuverability are not the only reasons to buy a jet ski. Larger models are also great for long trips or day trips. They are extremely durable and some have plenty of dry storage space for picnics, clothes or other items you may need when you stop. This has become one of my favorite reasons to have a GTX right now, it is that I can get off the ground and see where your day is, knowing that you have saved everything for any eventuality! In the first few years I used jet skiing, I used it a lot in the Gulf of Mexico and brackish water, and I can not tell you what I have seen and what I have experienced with that jet ski! Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. How many times has this happened to me, and it’s just one of the most memorable moments I can say I had with a jet ski in salt water. Recently, I have used my Sea-Doo mainly in the freshwater lakes around Atlanta, and I can tell you that although some of the lakes get very crowded over the weekend, it is a very enjoyable experience! On a hot summer day, there is nothing better than going to the lake with your jet ski to cool off and swim. I have found that one major difference with crowded lakes compared to open oceans is that you have to keep your head on the swing to avoid collisions with boats or other people. On a busy day, there are many waves created by boats and other skiers and you should be careful.

The difference between salt water and freshwater jet skiing can also be found in ship maintenance, and salt can really ruin any piece of metal in danger, especially in your trailer! As you might expect, every time you put your jet ski in the water, you completely immerse your trailer in salt water, so after each use, you should wash both your Warner and the trailer thoroughly to try it. Do. Reduce salt as much as possible, even though you will still have a lot of rust on the trailer, but do not worry. Just do your homework after each use, and it will take care of you for years to come. Remember to lubricate the ball bearings on the wheels every year or two (any reputable store can do this for you), as frequent immersion in salt water can remove the fat over time. Destroy. If you use your jet ski mainly in fresh water, much less maintenance will be done. The repair shop I use suggests washing it once or twice a year and not worrying about hose it after each trip, unless it is really dirty. Fresh water no longer causes it to rust, but bearing lubrication at least twice a year is still recommended. If you live in a winter area and can’t use your jet ski all year round (anywhere in Florida!), You’ll probably need to recharge your battery in the spring. Because if not used, it will lose its charge within a few months unless it is constantly plugged in.

Other popular jet ski brands include Kawasaki, Yamaha, Honda and Polaris. Polaris is probably the smallest company in this category, and you will only rarely see these cars there. Yamaha is a very popular rental jet ski and you will often see these jet skis in lakes and bays. Many people will have their first experience with a waverunner from a rental company, whether a nearby lake or a week-long trip to exotic areas. This is a great way to “wet your feet”, but know that these rental companies always have a controlled version of the jet ski to slow down so that no one hurts themselves or others. Maximum speed in the rental industry rarely exceeds 35 or 40 miles per hour, and Sea-Doo even has two key owners for this reason. They have a “learning key” with a top speed of about 35 mph for beginners and rental companies. Once the owner has mastered this speed, he can progress to the usual key with a maximum speed of up to 70 miles per hour or in some cases even more! However, anything above 60 mph can be a really crazy ride and you do not want to fall off the jet ski or jump off the jet ski at this speed! Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. So be warned!

As long as you take care of your brand new jet ski and maintain it properly, there is no reason why it will not provide you and your family with years of fun and enjoyment. By buying a new jet ski, you at least know what you are getting as a good device. There is a factory warranty and sometimes you can buy a good extended warranty and you will probably not have any initial problems with it. However, with a working model you do not really know what you are getting and you want to do your homework to make sure it is not being abused or damaged in any way by the owner. There are many opportunities for car damage on waterways, including underwater trapping, working in very shallow water, hitting rocks just below the surface, colliding with boats or other people, or even road accidents. It may be a good idea to look at a qualified marine mechanic before you buy to make sure. However, there is a huge price difference between second-hand and new, so if you can find a used car with a great shape, you will save a lot of money between buying a new machine.

I hope I have provided some useful information for those of you who are interested in buying your first jet ski and maybe I have given you some tips to think about to make sure you choose the right jet ski. Also, to be able to consider general maintenance and avoid and regret many urban myths about how having a jet ski is a bad idea. I love every minute of my Sea-Doo and look at shopping as an impulsive purchase, but a great idea to enjoy for years, past and future! So let everyone have fun, and I see you in the lakes and roads of the world!
