Finding the right Jet Ski for big and small waves

Whether you`re on the lake, the river or the ocean, riding a Jet Ski through the big waves can without a doubt be one of the most fun things to do in the summer time.  Jet Skis are largely popular for the fact that they are more maneuverable than a large boat, simple to operate, cost efficient, and lack external propellers.  In all regards, riding a Jet Ski is like freedom on the water. 

You can go where no one else on the water can and nearly anyone of any age can realistically learn how to operate one as well.

But as with ownership of any vehicle, great responsibilities come in properly maintaining and operating it. When purchasing a Jet Ski, you have to take strongly into account safety, maintenance costs, and engine power, among other things.  You should also know that Jet Skis are not just recreational toys, but they serve other purposes as well. Let`s take a look…

Non Recreational Use

Jet Skis are used around the world for a variety of purposes, and not just for recreational use.  Jet Skis are often used worldwide as vehicles for rescue operations, as police craft, and as surface targets by the United States military. 

Safety Comes First When Riding A Jet Ski

The first and foremost concern you must consider when purchasing a Jet Ski is safety.  While it is a privilege to be able to own and have fun with a Jet Ski, that doesn`t mean you can`t ignore safety regulations and rules. Other people share the water with you, and reckless driving can lead to either serious injuries or even death to either those other people or to yourself. 

When you are purchasing your Jet Ski, talk to the dealer or seller and learn the basics of operating a Jet Ski safety. 

Also read up on the laws and regulations relevant to your location and be sure to follow them.  And as always, when you`re out there riding on the big waves it ultimately comes down to your personal judgment. 

If you don`t feel the water is safe at the present time to ride in whether it is due to weather, a too crowded body of water, or anything, then you shouldn`t ride. Safety should always be your number one priority

Solo Jet Ski vs. Sport Jet Ski

The primary difference between a solo Jet Ski and a sport Jet Ski is that a solo is designed for one person and a sport is designed for two, three or four people.  When purchasing a jet ski, think about how you will use it for.  Are you buying one for yourself, or for the whole family or friends to share? Do you feel comfortable riding with other people on the same Jet Ski?  Does anyone else you know like to ride?  While it may ultimately come down simply to personal preference, you should consider all the factors relevant to your eventual use of the Jet Ski to determine whether a solo or a sport is a better fit for you. 

Buying a new or a used Jet Ski?

Another important question that comes up when purchasing a Jet Ski is whether to buy new or used.  If you have the money to buy a brand, spanking new Jet Ski, than by all means go for it! A brand new Jet Ski will no doubt stand out on the water and be your pride and joy to own. 

But in the event you are on a budget and forced to go used, you`ll have to be careful about the Jet Ski that you buy, but here are some steps you can take

1. Who`s selling it? 

Look into the background and reputation of the dealer or seller.  Ask around friends and family members to see if they bought a used jet ski from a particular dealer and if they would recommend that dealer. Many times a trusted friend telling you in person what dealers to go to and to avoid will be more helpful than reading online reviews.

2. Perform a thorough inspection of the Jet Ski

Just because you`re buying used doesn`t mean that you can`t buy low quality. Check for water leaks, corrosion, rust, dings or scratches on the outside, inside and below the Jet Ski. Ask the seller specific questions about the Jet Ski to find out how long they`ve had it, if it`s been properly maintained, where it came from, and what, if any, modifications have been made. You may also ask to schedule a test drive to get a first hand feel of whether the Jet Ski rides nice and seems to be in good condition.

3. Finally the price is important. Of course!

Even if a used Jet Ski is in top condition, don`t overpay.  Visit online sites such as NADA to make sure that you`re not being handed a lousy deal. Typically, new Jet Ski`s cost anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000 and used Jet Ski`s from $1,000 to $10,000.

Engine Power to ride all kind of Waves

The fastest Jet Ski`s in the world right now are capable of producing up to over 2,000cc for over 340 horse power.  If this is your first time purchasing a jet ski, that`s probably a little too much power.  For a good, fast Jet Ski that doesn`t break the limits, look at 1500cc or lower for about 200 to 250 horsepower. 

Regular Maintenence is important

You`ve just had a blast riding the big waves all summer long, but now the hot season is winding down, the winds are starting to get colder and the leaves are turning orange.  It`s time to put your Jet Ski in the garage until next year.  Before you know it, the next year`s summer has arrived!

You drive on down to the lake; launch the Jet Ski into the water…and it makes weird noises when you try to start it? If this or something similar occurs, it`s probably because the Jet Ski was not properly maintained. Here are some steps you can take to making sure your Jet Ski is kept properly maintained throughout the year:

  • Maintain Gas and Oil Levels
  • Annually switch out Oil Filter
  • Annually Grease the Seals and Bearings
  • Regularly examine the engine for any signs of damage or corrosion
  • Have checked out by an approved shop annually before use
