Jet Ski is the brand name of personal watercraft (PWC) manufactured by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd.. The name, however, has become a genericized trademark for any type of personal watercraft. Since the riding of jet skis has evolved through the 90s, other companies like Yamaha, Bombardier and Honda have joined the sport to make it into a worldwide sport in both racing and freestyle. A Jet Ski is propelled by jets of water, not props.
To ride, attach the engine shut-off clip to your life-vest before you start your jet ski. Next, place both your hands on the handlebars and slowly squeeze the throttle with your first two fingers. While you are in close proximity to the shore or dock, keep your speed at trolling, the lowest level. Once away from the dock, have fun, but be safe. Stay inside the boeys while you ride and avoid other jet skiers and boats. Be sure to stay aware of your surroundings at all times when you are riding your jet ski.
