Jet ski is a brand name for the PWC, a personal watercraft which is also referred to as a water scooter where the rider is seated or standing on, instead of being inside like a boat.

It is also advised to apply sunscreen to avoid skin burns and get yourself hydrated beforehand as staying in the middle of the sea with direct sunlight can make you feel dehydrated after a while. Reassure you have worn a life jacket safely and is composed of the whistle, lanyard, and a dry bag consisting of your documentation, cash, and a GPS device.
Getting On Board
Before getting into the water, know all your controls and do not start your watercraft in less than waist-deep water. Pay attention to your environment and others and take it slow without taking off at a top speed. Start with a speed of 5mph-10mph until you are away from the shoreline.
Do not tight your hands unnecessarily on the hand bar as it will make your hands tired and pain in the shoulder. All you need to do is hold firmly, relax, make sure you are balanced and centered, and ride. Avoid looking at the hand bar and water; instead, look towards the horizon as it will help you stay in the right direction.
