Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 10.24.49 PM

During the last month of 2014, the JetSkiShop club headed out west of the Gold Coast 130kms, away from the saltwater and golden beaches. There at Moogerah Dam, 25 people found their new home for three days of everything that our jetski lifestyle could throw at us: from jet skiing, wake boarding, tubing, swimming, cliff diving, bonfires and camping.

The heat wave that caught us by surprise kept everyone in the water for the whole weekend with the temperature exceeding 44C. Although this fresh water dam is not the largest in Australia, it one of the most scenic landscapes. We had a selection of watercraft, from Yamaha, Sea-Doo, Kawasaki and Honda. With the age of skis dating back to early 2002, this really proved the point that it doesn’t matter which ski you ride as long as your out on the water.

Anyone wanting to get involved in this lifestyle should talk to James from This year we celebrate 19 years the club has been cruising the waters of southeast Queensland, Australia still with some original members.

James started with a 440 stand up at the age of 12. The addiction grew, resulting in James traveling to AMI in Daytona USA at the age of 15, completing the only watercraft technician course available in the world and earning honors. He started his own jet ski shop in 2000, growing his business from a workshop to a dealership, to largest importer of new and used watercraft in Australia. While staying true to the passion of riding jet skis, he still runs the largest jet ski club in Australia with over 1,200 members.
