A Quick Run Down of the Rules of the Ride

Sea-Doo’s latest newsletter features a short version of what you need to know before you suit up to ride your jet ski. This is part of the BRP Responsible Rider program which focuses on safety, responsibility on the water, and keeping it green. Getting back to the rules, you must be 16 years old to drive a Sea-Doo and whatever you do, don’t drink, or do drugs and ride. You become a danger to yourself and others.

Always wear a USCG approved personal flotation device when driving and make sure your passenger wears one too. We can’t stress enough, the importance of wearing a life jacket. Sea-Doo also wants you to wear neoprene shorts or wetsuit bottoms for added protection. Also, don’t be that person riding recklessly and making everyone angry or worse, harming someone with your dangerous antics. Make sure to always have your safety lanyard attached to you and the kill switch on your ski.

Take it slow and easy when getting underway and do the same when coming in when you are close to shore. Wait for a clear area before getting on the throttle. Finally, practice etiquette on the waterways and do your best to play well with others. Don’t be that obnoxious guy who everyone dreads seeing making their way to the local sandbar or to the peaceful fishing hole.

Check out Sea-Doo’s library of videos, all things safety, and a host of useful tips and trick in the Sea-Doo Owner Zone. Have a safe and fun summer on the water and as our friend Tiko Losano used to say,” Go Play!”
