It’s well-known that any trip to Dubai is incomplete without a jet ski ride in the Emirate’s temperate waters. But what if it’s your first-time jet skiing? Can you enjoy it if you haven’t tried it before? Well, we have all been there, but surprisingly jet skiing is one of the most beginner-friendly watersports that you can actually enjoy. Here is what makes this exhilarating sport fun and enjoyable for a first-time experience.
The jet ski industry in Dubai is booming and is becoming increasingly regulated to strengthen the safety of riders. As part of these safety measures, jet ski rental companies are expected to abide by several legislations that allow beginners to have fun but in an extremely regulated environment. Jet ski rentals are also mandated to provide a list of safety equipment that are essential to ensure the safety of riders from the time they set foot on the water until they return.
Guide And Instructors
It is mandatory for jet ski rentals to provide riders with a safety guide on things to do when in waters, and how to keep themselves and the other riders safe. This allows beginners to maximize the fun time spent on the waters without safety risks or hazards.
Moreover, as doing stunts for the first time may be hard to catch up with, beginners can choose to ride with a guide or instructor. As professionals, guides can help beginners accelerate their fun experience by doing stunts and giving first-time riders the chance to watch and learn alongside them.
As jet skis mimic a bike model, it conveniently fits two riders in a sit-down model. This allows beginners to let an expert in the sport accompany them and take turns in riding.
If there is one key reason why beginners can enjoy jet skiing for the first time, it’s because of the sport’s relatively short learning curve. Many jet ski professionals say that on average a beginner can catch up with the required jet skiing skills in 10-15 minutes. Watching videos or reading materials on beginner tips before trying jet skiing for the first time can shorten this learning curve further.
The design of the jetski which closely resembles and performs like a motorbike, making it easy for beginners to learn controls and how to handle it in the water. Beginners will have no trouble figuring out how to use it and actually enjoy time while riding it and trying simple stunts.
Jet skis are available as sit-down and stand-up models. The sit-down model in specific is recommended for beginners for a fun, comfortable, and fear-free experience. Many jetski beginners are afraid of the thought of falling into the water. As a sit-down model gives more control for the rider, the probability of falling is significantly less. This is why the sit-down jet ski models are commonly used for fishing and cruising around the waters as well. It is also the only model option that accommodates two riders.
Once beginners have mastered the skills, they can try the stand-up model which is designed only for one rider, and is also much lighter than the sit-down model. The lightweight allows riders to perform tricks and stunts easily.
