Vacations and weekend excursions at the lake are meant to be fun, and nobody’s idea of a good time is spending a few hours in the emergency room. Before enjoying the exhilarating experience of gliding across the water in your Lake Tahoe Jet Ski rental, be sure to consider your safety and that of those around you. Today we have some safety tips to help make your next Lake Tahoe Jet Skiing experience as smooth, safe, and fun as possible.
Below are some valuable safety tips to consider before hitting the water with your Lake Tahoe Jet Ski rental from H2O Craft Rentals & Repair.
No Wake Jumping: Unless you’re a professional daredevil, flying through the air on a piece of powerful machinery like a motorcycle or Jet Ski shouldn’t even be on your list of vacation activities. Jumping over a wake in a boat or on a Jet Ski may look like fun, but consider that once in the air, you won’t be able to see where you’re landing. You could very well end up landing on and seriously injuring other boaters, Jet Skiers, and even children tubing for the first time. It’s also a terrible idea to do any stunt work on a rented craft.
Alcohol and Jet Skiing Do Not Mix: Driving any motorized vehicle under the influence is illegal. You want to be especially careful when operating a Jet Ski at a popular California lake like Lake Tahoe. Other vacationers may not be as refined and might be operating their watercrafts while intoxicated. Make sure that you’re keeping yourself and those around you as safe as possible by staying alert and sober at the helm.
Always Wear a PFD: You may have been a swimming star in high school, but that doesn’t make you impervious to mistakes in the water. Always wear a PFD (Personal Floatation Device) when operating powerful machinery on the open water. Being a good swimmer won’t keep you afloat if you accidentally hit your head and fall into the water unconscious.
