Summer is here, and it brings the perfect climate to enjoy some water sports activities. Dubai offers different water sport activities in various breathtaking locations. Now is the time to explore the sport of Jet Ski to beat the hot weather with the cool waters of Dubai.
The pandemic has ceased international travel, and many have decided to stay back rather than go on trips. Just because there is a change of plan does not mean you should give up on fun this summer. The blazing heat of Dubai can only be countered with a pleasant trip to the waters.
Jet Skiing For Two
A Jet Ski is a personal watercraft (PWC) and feels like riding a motorcycle on water. There are mainly two models, the stand-up and the sit-down. You will have to choose the sit-down model if you are riding with a partner. Share the exhilarating experience of jet skiing with a friend to make it the most memorable event this summer. Enjoy the thrill of coursing in the water with the wind on your face.
There are differences between riding a Jet Ski alone and with a partner. When there are two people on board, several factors have to be considered to ensure a safe ride. You will initially undergo training with our instructor; make sure to follow the guidelines to have a fun and safe experience.
Ensuring Passenger Comfort
It is crucial to be mindful of your friend’s comfort and discomfort. Communication is key, and the passenger will have to communicate with the driver so that the two can collectively have a wonderful experience. It is best to start slow and then pick up the pace according to the comfort of the passenger.
The driver should inform the friend before making quick turns and spins so that they aren’t caught unaware. The driver can increase the speed when the passenger is more comfortable and gets used to the experience of jet skiing.
Safety Tips When Driving With A Partner
Both the driver and the rider will have to wear the safety gear, which includes life jackets, wetsuits, and glasses. It is mandatory to wear a life jacket at all costs. Both the driver and the rider will need to be acquainted with the mechanics, and operation of the Jet Ski so that the rider can take charge if something happens to the driver.
It is vital to communicate your comforts with your friend. Inform them how to hold on to you while you are driving. The lesser experienced of the two should sit behind so that he or she gets familiarized with the whole process and enjoys the ride.
The driver should have some experience controlling and accelerating the Jet Ski. The driver also has to be aware of the water conditions and be ready to adapt according to the situation. Both driver and rider should be facing forward, and the passenger should communicate with the driver if they want to stop or slow down.
Two-seater Jet Skis should be driven on higher speeds to avoid toppling. Driving at idle and slow speeds will cause the Jet Ski to topple. To avoid this, the driver should practice driving at a higher speed and still maintain the balance. It is harder to perform the spins and turns with a passenger behind, but with due practice, you can perform these different tricks and have a thrilling experience with your friend.
