Myrtle Beach Jet Ski Rental Safety Part 1

Myrtle Beach Jet Ski Rental Safety Part 1

Welcome to what some people say is the most fun you can have on the water – riding a personal water craft.  It puts a smile on the faces of almost anyone who tries it, there is nothing like it.

 
 

Because there is nothing like it, we are going to take a few minutes to familiarize you with the operation of a personal water craft or Jet Ski. It’s all about safety, the view, and passengers and others on the water.

 
 

Who is allowed to operate a Myrtle Beach Jet Ski?

 
 

Are you old enough? 16 years old is the recommend age by the Personal Watercraft Industry Association. However, local and state laws may vary. State laws may also require operator training or a boating safety course.

 
 

Action Water Sportz requires you to be 16 years old with a valid photo ID to drive alone. Any age can ride when accompanied by an adult. Parental consent is required if under age 18.

 
 

Plan to arrive 30 minutes before your designated time for complete instructions on water safety and the operation of the Myrtle Beach Jet Ski. This time is NOT included in your paid adventure time.

 
 

Essential rules for Jet Ski safety

 
 

Know and commit to following these essential rules for safe operation of our personal watercraft. Use good judgment and put safety first.

 
 
 
    • Never ride after consuming alcohol or drugs. Local DUI laws are enforced on the waterway.
 
    • Be aware of and respect your environment. Stay away from waterfront properties, ecologically sensitive areas and endangered species. Action Water Sports offers the largest riding area on the Intercoastal’s Waterway 10-20 miles of even ocean riding. We will instruct you are areas where you need to be cautious of your environment.
 
    • Respect everyone on the water. There are lots of people sharing the waterway – boaters, skiers, surfers and swimmers. Please respect their rights to safety, access and use of the water.
 
    • Adhere to all no-wake zones. There are areas on the waterway where you need to slow down and not cause a wake or wave. These areas are clearly marked and need to be observed.
 
 
 

What to wear when you ride

 
 

Anyone who operates or is a passenger on a jet ski must by law wear a US Coast Guard Approved life jacket suitable for personal watercraft use. An Action Water Sportz operator will assist you with properly fitting your lifejacket.

 
 

neoprene materialIn addition to a safety jacket, you should wear protective wetsuit bottoms or clothing that offers equivalent protection such as shorts made from neoprene material. Regular swimwear won’t protect you from the possibility of water being forced into body cavities. If you fall into the water and come near a jet nozzle, regular swimwear will not adequately protect against forceful water entry into the rectum or vagina.

 
 

Footwear, gloves and eye protection are also recommended for your safety

 
 

Action Water Sportz wants you to enjoy your ride and come back safely. By following a few rules, you and your family can have a great outing and enjoy a summer vacation treat. Watch the video below for a recap of these rules. We will be posting more in the next few days.
