Getting Started: Jet Ski Racing

Protect Your Head: Helmet

Helmets are, of course, required by all sanctioning PWC racing associations. If you are new to the game, watercraft racing is full throttle ahead, which mean you need to protect your head.  Safety first!

Protect Your Eyes: Goggles

Do not leave home without your goggles. If you started out recreational jet skiing and having fun, we understand the lack of desire for eye protection. But if you want to have a career racing on the water, racing alongside your fiercest competition, you must wear goggles.  Not only will they help you see the course, you’ll definitely need them for that mad spray and splash from the rider in front of you. And yes, even in first place — you’ll want to have on those goggles.

Protect Your Body: Life Vest

Buckle up that vest! It’s required. No life vest. No racing. Make sure you take the time to get fitted for the proper one. You don’t want a life vest that is uncomfortable or irritating during your race. Give it the tug test, if you can’t pull it over your head, it’s a winner.

Manage the Waves: Practice Makes Perfect
