When you set out on a waverunner ride, you expect to encounter some waves – after all, it’s in the name. However, if you’re a beginner, jumping the waves isn’t quite as easy as it looks on TV.

To get the most out of your waverunner rental, you can count on your friends at Atlantic Beach Clubs II of Fort Lauderdale, FL, to set you up.

How to Safely Jump Waves on a Waverunner

Start Slow

Though extremely fun, jumping waves can be unsafe for beginners. It is important to take the time to focus, especially if you are new to the jet ski world. Going full throttle and attacking large waves can leave you injured. Gain experience by taking your time and practicing on smaller waves before you challenge larger, harsher water currents.

Be Safe

Always wear a PFD (personal floatation device) and take the time to judge waves. Be aware of your surroundings and make sure your landing area is clear. Don’t try beating someone else to a wave. One wave isn’t worth crashing into someone else and injuring that person and yourself, as well as damaging your waverunner.

Learn to Land

Most beginners think that landing flatly on the water is a good idea, but unfortunately, this could damage your waverunner. A good landing starts by dipping the posterior of the vehicle into the water first to ease the impact of the landing. Riders should concentrate on making the dip one fluid motion rather than smaller steps.

Riding a waverunner and learning to jump the waves can be an unforgettable experience, but to get the most out of your rental, you must understand basic safety tips. Contact the professionals at Atlantic Beach Clubs II at (954) 543-2938 today.
