Few experiences can compare to the freedom that you feel while gliding atop the water on a jet ski rental from our friends at American Water Sports. There are, however, some rules to follow when operating powerful pieces of machinery like jet skis and boats. Today, we’ll discuss some tips to keep you and your family safe while enjoying the many splendors that come with renting a jet ski. Below are some tips for staying safe on the water from our team at Sea Gardens Beach and Tennis Resort.
Wear Appropriate Safety AttireWith all watersports, safety should be your number one priority. A life vest is required to ride our jet skis, but our team also recommends you dress in a swimsuit or clothing that is easy to swim in and easy to see in case an accidental fall occurs. This way, you are prepared to make swimming to safety both simple and smooth. And please, don’t forget sun protection! Apply and reapply sunscreen to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.
Resist the Urge to JumpIt may be enticing to jump boat wakes with your jet ski, but don’t tempt fate. Wakes can grow so large that it may be impossible to see what’s on the other side. Blindly cutting across wakes and into the air could lead to landing on a child, other jet skiers, or unseen obstacles lurking beneath the water’s surface.
Know When to Get Help
If you do encounter a dangerous situation on the water, contact emergency services immediately. Unless you are certified in CPR or other lifesaving techniques, don’t attempt a rescue or emergency medical procedure out of your skill set and end up causing even more damage. You could even end up putting yourself in a dangerous situation if you attempt a rescue out of your league, causing even more chaos to an already hectic situation.
