Still on the fence about making that final purchase? Owning a Jet Ski comes with a whole host of benefits. Here are a few reasons why you should get one. What are you waiting for?

Whether you’ve got family fun or friendly rivalry on your mind, Jet Skis are a great way to bring everyone together. Provided you give a thorough safety briefing and show them how to be responsible on the waves, it’s the perfect excuse to get your favourite people out of the water and enjoying themselves. You’ll never wonder what to do with the family on the school holidays again – get those kids off the sofa and into the fresh air! Remember that under-16’s should always be supervised.

Whatever speed you’re going, Jet Skiing gives your cardiovascular system a great workout. All that action gets your heart pumping and increases blood circulation, bringing more nutrients and oxygen to your tissues. Just 30 minutes of Jet Skiing a day improves your endurance massively.

It might look easy, but riding a Jet Ski requires good balance and coordination, skills that you’ll pick up pretty quickly when doing it regularly. Crouching, steering and holding onto a moving Jet Ski is no simple thing, especially as you’re constantly altering your speed in rough waves.

Few things shake off stress as well as being out at sea with the wind in your hair. All those endorphins from the exercise clear your head, while the added adrenaline will leave you on a fresh high. Plus, you’re so busy focusing on the water that you’ll forget any worries as soon as you pull that throttle.

You might not realise it when you’re pounding those waves, but you’re actually getting in some pretty good exercise. You naturally engage your core when keeping yourself steady, which tones your abdominals, as well as building muscle in your back, arms and legs. A 30-minute session can torch around 250 calories.

Jet Skis are the perfect size to explore quiet beaches and coastline that you’d struggle to reach from swimming alone. Plus, unlike boats, they’re dead simple to turn off and leave by the shore while you have a look around.

Did you know that you could learn to race your craft? There’s a wide range of levels available to compete in and, with a little instruction, you’ll be well on your way in no time.

Let’s be honest, no one ever looked bad on Jet Ski!
