Jet Skiing

Jet skis and waverunners are fun to ride, but each year many kids get hurt while riding them.

  • You should never ride a jet ski by yourself.
  • When you’re on a jet ski or waverunner, make sure you wear a life jacket, safety glasses, a wetsuit, footwear and gloves.
  • Hold on tight when moving.
  • Never climb on a jet ski while it is tied to a dock, on the beach or on a trailer.
  • Never start a jet ski – that’s a job for an adult.
