  • JSW Powers Away With Business Award

    July 1, 2019

    Arundel-headquartered marine sports dealer JSW Powersports has been honoured for its international achievements.

    The company, which has been jet ski manufacturer Sea Doo Watercrafts's number one dealer in the world for the past five years, has been recognised in the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards after sweeping the Retail, Wholesale and Distribution category for June.

    The company was presented with the award at a ceremony held at KPMG this week.
    Owner Jeff McNiven launched the business in 1998 as a small mechanical workshop servicing personal watercraft.

    Marketing Manager Oliver Bennett said the company had grown significantly during the past 19 years and now employed more than 40 people.
    “We started selling all brands of personal watercraft under the name Jet Ski Warehouse in 2001,” said Mr Bennett.
    “The business grew in leaps and bounds and we soon outgrew our premises forcing us to move in 2011 to Ereton Drive in Arundel.
    “Along with this move we became JSW Powersports, the Sea-Doo dealer on the Gold Coast and are now the number one Sea-Doo dealer in the world.”

    JSW Powersports is also the Australian distributor of Sea Fox Boats as well as Malibu and Axis boat dealers for wakeboarding and water-skiing towboats. The company’s offerings also include Can-Am all-terrain and on-road vehicles.

    The awards, now in their 24th year, aim to foster pride in the city’s business community and highlight its important as a business hub. Some of the city’s best-known companies can claim to have been winners.

  • Fun on the Horizon: Gold Coast raft-up hits the water

    November 5, 2018

    Trial run of a lifestyle-based social event for Horizon yacht owners makes waves
    The Australian arm of luxury Taiwanese motor yacht brand Horizon has trialled a water toy-fuelled raft-up ahead of plans to hold a much bigger event for owners in December.
    The weekend’s event combined the brand’s yachts with smaller craft to demonstrate how the boats can double as lifestyle magnets for owners.
    An all-new Horizon V81 and a Horizon E73 served as sports yacht-based motherships for the day. Tagging along were a Malibu 23 LSV Wakesetter wakeboarding boat and a couple of jet skis from nearby JSW Powersports.


    About 20 guests, including Jack Springer, the US-based chief executive of lifestyle boating brand Malibu, and the chief executive of the Australian boat-making division of Malibu, Price Taylor, hit the water for the day. Joining them were Horizon Yacht Australia represenatives, managing director Mark Western, and Erica Redman.

    “It was a tough day in the office,” Horizon Yacht Australia national sales manager Tony Jones, who organised the event, said. “Everyone had a go at wakeboarding, and on the jet skis,” he said.
    The success of the day has Jones starting to think about holding a similar event again soon.

    Bigger event planned

    Horizon is also planning to hold a raft-up day for all Horizon owners as many of the brand’s boats that have wintered up north around Hamilton Island head back down to Sydney for summer.
    “On December 14, we’re opening the doors again on the Gold Coast for all Horizon owners,” Jones said.

    “Events we’ve held in the past, people look at the photos and say ‘wow, I would really like to be part of that’,” he said. “We’ve been inundated with people saying they want to be involved.”

  • Sea-Doo SPARK – A Watercraft Dream Come True

    August 13, 2018


    It was small. It was nimble. It was colorful. It was surprisingly affordable. And it was so bold, it stirred up a revolution that sent a seismic wave through the personal watercraft (PWC) market and reinvigorated a sluggish PWC industry.  The way we would all look at personal watercraft would forever be changed by a watercraft that was half the size, and nearly half the price of a regular PWC that was available on the market at the time. This industry-innovating watercraft designed by BRP Sea-Doo was aptly named SPARK and spark a new way to play on the water, that was accessible to so many, was born. 

    The 2014 Sea-Doo SPARK – infusing the personal watercraft market with vibrant style and its lightweight design adapted to the rider’s  every move.

    The Sea-Doo SPARK made its pop-color inspired debut, during the September 2013 CLUB BRP dealer tradeshow, to thunderous applause and international acclaim. That was SPARK’s momentous, star moment. But the SPARK story began eight years prior, when President and Chief Executive Officer José Boisjoli tasked the Sea-Doo innovation team to find a way to make “2 for 1” a reality. Boisjoli’s concept was to bring to market two watercraft at the price it normally would have cost for one and to create a product that would bust through the barriers that, at that time, made it challenging for consumers to buy personal watercraft. Those barriers included consumer sentiment such as: PWCs are too expensive, difficult to store, hard to tow and tough to maintain.

    The Sea-Doo innovation team was up for the challenge and under the leadership of Denys Lapointe, then Executive Vice-President of Design and Innovation, they came up with an ingenious design and engineering solution by looking back to Sea-Doo’s heritage and looking toward the future guided by what became the codename for the project: CAFE. CAFE meant that the new Sea-Doo watercraft must be Clean, Affordable, Fun and Easy to operate. In the video below, Denys and the innovation team talk about the SPARK design process.

    The Sea-Doo SPARK agilely plowed through all the old notions about personal watercraft. SPARK was affordable. It was customizable and offered fun personalization options. It was easy to store. It was a dream to tow – even behind a small car. And maintenance was nearly effortless.

    Water lovers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world finally had a fun, nimble PWC that offered so much for so little. All thanks to a leader with a great vision and a team of innovators who wouldn’t accept the status quo and were willing to rethink what was possible.

    The 2016 Sea-Doo SPARK lineup offered a new color range.  By 2016, SPARK’s explosive growth driven by consumer demand for a fun and affordable personal watercraft contributed to a major resurgence in what only a few years back had been a lagging and declining PWC industry.


    Innovation never rests at Sea-Doo, and to prove that point in August of 2016 the world was introduced to the playful, stunt master the SPARK TRIXX during a live Facebook broadcast. Once again, Sea-Doo revolutionized the PWC industry with a watercraft that changed the perception of what a personal watercraft should be. Let’s look back with the world-debut video of the SPARK TRIXX.

    On-water tricks were so easy to do, and so much fun that Cycle World declared it “a dirt bike for the water.”  Watch their video review below.

    The 2018 Sea-Doo SPARK brought back all the fun of the 2017 model with room for three riders and in a refreshing orange colour scheme.

    The great news for Malibu/Axis buyers is that a massive 70% of our customers rated their experience with their dealer as 5 out of 5!  We all know what hard markers Australians are, so that is a huge vote of confidence for our dealers, who together have more than 95 years’ experience in supporting Malibu/Axis owners through the lifetime of their boat ownership.

  • #FINKE18

    June 15, 2018

    Can-Am has walked away with the top 15 positions in the SXS Turbo class at round two of the CAMS Australian Off-Road Championship and the biggest Off-Road race in Australia, the Finke Desert Race.

    Lasting over three days and spanning across 500km of the Northern Territory Desert, Finke is the most physically and mentally gruelling race in the Off-Road racing calendar. It challenges both driver and machine, and to be successful both must be equally as tough.

    Solid results at #Finke18 with the JSW X-team competing in the SXS Turbo class.

    Driver Jeff McNiven + Navigator Andrew Reid placing 5th in class and 20th outright.
    With 67 cars in total crossing the finish line including 26 Can-Am Mavericks.

    Words from Jeff McNiven “We lost a bunch of time with a tyre change, but I feel like we had podium speed this weekend.”

    Backing up their win in round one, Toby Whatley alongside co-driver Simon Herrmann are now Finke desert race champions for 2018. Following in second place was 2017 winners Nathan Chivers with Scott O'Connor and in third place Mick Crossland and Steve Wood.

    Can-Am accounted for 39 of the total 130 car entrants this year, it was clear Can-Am was the machine of choice “it’s just amazing what these cars can do, I just love it” – Nathan Chivers.

    2017 saw Can-Am Maverick X3 drivers finish with the top 13 positions in class and Chivers placing

    20th outright. This year saw Whatley dominate the SXS turbo class as well as pushing his Maverick

    X3 into 15th place outright and overall five Can-Am finishers in the top 20 outright.

    With only one round remaining of the CAMS Australian Off-Road Championship left, the Rainbow Desert Enduro held on the 10th of August in Victoria we are excited to see Can-Am further showcase its dominance over the competition.

    Until next year Finke...

  • Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV 2018 Review | Boat Sales

    June 15, 2018


    Not content to rest on its laurels, Malibu Boats has redesigned its award winning Wakesetter 23 LSV to make the world's all-time best selling tow-boat even better

    Tow-boat giant, Malibu Boats, has upgraded its most popular and best selling Wakesetter 23 LSV. For 2018 this pro level wakesurfing and wakeboarding craft is equipped with a deeper hull for more internal storage space and ballast, along with a redesigned interior with the optional new WakeView pull-out bench seat. With these additions and a raft of other improvements, the new Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV is set to retain its position as the world's number one selling performance tow-boat.



    In the world of professional tow sport boats there is no bigger name than Malibu. For decades Malibu has been at the fore-front in the design and production of tow boats for pro level wakeboarding, surfing and skiing.

    Founded in California in 1982 by a group of water-skiing enthusiasts, Malibu Boats' attention to detail (and dedication to innovation) set it on a path to become the world's top tow-boat manufacturer. Along the way, Malibu has pioneered a range of innovations (the most notable being the Power Wedge hydrofoil and the patented Surf Gate wave maker) to create the ideal wake for boarding and perfect wave for surfing.

    The Power Wedge, now in its Mk 2 configuration, is a transom mounted hydrofoil which, when fully deployed, can create up to 450kg of wake creating water displacement. When combined with the water ballast contained in a series of underfloor and stern tanks, the Malibu hull is able generate a big, high volume wake that is ‘tunable’ in size, length and shape from a touch screen display on the dash.

    The Surf Gate is a more recent innovation (introduced in 2012) which integrates with the Power Wedge to create a clean, crisp, unbroken wave behind the boat.

    With Surf Gate there is a hydraulic trim tab or plate on each side of the Malibu transom. Actuating or deploying one of these tabs creates a large and long wave in the wake on the opposite side of the boat. Cleverly, it does so without upsetting the lateral trim or balance of the boat.

    As noted, the size, shape and length of the wave generated can be controlled from the driver's seat. Or the surfer or wake boarder can dial up the perfect wave while on it using the optional Surf Band wrist remote - which for 2018 can also be used to adjust wake tower stereo speaker volume.


    Malibu Boats is head-quartered in Louden, Tennessee (USA), but has additional manufacturing plants in Merced, California and Albury in NSW, Australia.

    The Australia operation was founded in 1994 with the boats initially being produced under licence from Malibu USA. Today, all models sold locally are made in the Albury manufacturing facility by Malibu Boats Australia.

    Malibu Boats has dominated the tow-boat sales charts for many years. The company has been successful with a variety of different models, but the clear bestseller, and the world's favourite tow-boat, is the Wakesetter 23 LSV.

    There are eight models in the Malibu Wakesetter range, five of which are manufactured locally. The 23 LSV is the most popular on the world stage due to its convenient, not-too-big, not-too-small size and the excellent size and shape of its wake.

    The Wakesetter 23 LSV has been in production in Australia since 2008. Along the way it has seen several revisions and upgrades. For 2018, Malibu's bestseller has been tweaked for better performance and a more user-friendly interior layout.


    The Malibu 23 LSV is loaded with standard features and equipment straight out of the box — more than we can list here. Key features include the G3.5 wake tower with board racks and quick release latching system, as well as luxuriously upholstered bow and stern seating areas, an abundance of storage lockers, soft-grip rubber flooring throughout, and a no-rot all-fibreglass construction system.

    New 2018 features include a deeper cockpit and transom storage compartments, larger aft facing boarding platform seats, a deeper gear storage tray under the engine cover, transom walk-over pads (to avoid stepping on upholstery) and new L-shaped ballast tanks at the stern to compliment the centre and bow (optional) sub-floor ballast tanks.

    The new MaxBallast L-shaped tank system can also be optioned with additional plug and play saddle bag tanks to add ballast weight for increased hull displacement and, ultimately, a bigger wake.

    Importantly, ballast tank levels are accurately monitored via Malibu Viper 2 IPS 12" touch screen dash display - which also displays engine data and controls the Power Wedge hydrofoil, Surf Gate, navigation, individual rider pre-sets, and many other of boats systems.

    Mechanically, the Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV comes standard with a Ford based 350hp Indmar Monsoon 410 EFI V8 inboard engine coupled with a V-drive propulsion system.

    Packaged with this entry engine and a tandem axle painted 3000kg rated trailer with electric-hydraulic break-away brakes, the Gold Coast's JSW Powersports has the Wakesetter 23 LSV priced from $122K.

    Our test boat was set-up with most of the options available for the Wakesetter 23 LSV to showcase and demonstrate its full capabilities. These included the aforementioned Power Wedge, Surf Gate and the WakeView pull-out observer seat.

    Helm and command centre options included the heated, power-lift helm chair, rear view mirror, Wideview rear facing camera, Sport Dash analogue rotary joystick control (with phone holder) and the Command Steering Wheel -- both of which can be used to control the Power Wedge, Surf Gate, boat speed and stereo systems.

    More general options and additions include the transom saddle bag ballast tanks, surf bimini (above the Illusion G3.5 wake tower), hot water shower, stereo and speaker upgrades, heater, upgraded clamping tower board racks, multiple metallic gelcoat hull colours, dual batteries, underwater, tower and deck LED lighting, saltwater anodes, trailer upgrades and more.

    The test boat was also fitted with the second of two additional engine options, the more powerful 400hp Indmar Monsoon 450 EFI V8 inboard engine with the ‘salt pack’ for use in coastal waters. It also featured a stainless steel exhaust surf pipe (to quieten exhaust noise at low surfing speeds) and a high torque propeller to cater for surfing and wakeboarding with a full load onboard.

    While the fuel-injected V8 models are more than sufficient for most applications, for ultimate power and performance some buyers might consider the premium 530hp Indmar Monsoon 575 supercharged V8 inboard engine.

    As it stood, our Monsoon 450 engined and fully optioned 23 LSV test boat package was priced at just over $200,000 (see below).


    The Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV is a big, wide beam (2.6m) bowrider trailerboat with sleek external styling and a spacious, luxuriously appointed interior which, Malibu says, can accommodate up to 15 people. Accordingly, the boat has lots of well upholstered seats and deep storage areas.

    Starting at the bow, there is a large sun-pad/seating compartment which can cater for two or three adults or even a bunch of kids.

    The test boat's dual batteries were situated beneath the lift-out bow centre seat cushion, along with the bow ballast tank which stretches forward to the stem.

    Moving aft there is a centre opening, walk-through windscreen with wind shelter board, driver's command centre with tilt-adjust steering wheel, side-mount throttle lever, and touch screen multi-function dash displays.

    The heated, electrically height adjustable (optional) driver's seat is very comfortable and it slides fore and aft so you can position yourself perfectly before the steering wheel and controls.

    Visibility forward is very good and the dash displays are easy to read and use in direct sun light.

    From the helm the primary Viper 2 IPS touch screen display is a short stretch away so you can easily deploy and control the Power Wedge and Surf Gate. The 12-inch display also allows you to monitor speed, RPM, oil pressure, engine temperature and fuel capacity.

    These functions can also be controlled by the optional Sport Dash analogue rotary joystick control and from the buttons in the centre of the Command Steering wheel.

    Do you need these latter two options? Probably not as you can control all the functions and boat operating systems using the primary Viper display in conjunction with the smaller 7" Touch Command auxiliary display, which sits alongside it to the right of the steering wheel.

    Having noted the above, when the boat is underway with a surfer or boarder out back it is easier to switch the Surf Gate from one side to the other, and to make small, incremental changes to boat speed and to the Power Wedge, by using the optional rotary joystick control.

    So to answer our own question, we would tick the option box for the joystick control, but forego the Command Steering wheel.

    The rear of the Wakesetter 23 LSV is set-up for maximum crew and passenger comfort. Prominent features include the soft-grip rubber flooring, aft sun-pad over the engine well and the full wrap-around perimeter seating - which includes the optional new transom pull-out WakeView observer seat.

    Other features include the under-seat storage areas, a lift-out ice cooler, multiple cup/drink holders, rear boarding platform and more.


    The Malibu Wakesetter 23 LSV is available with two different hull configurations: the Wake Plus hull; and the Diamond hull. The latter is for cross-over tow sport applications encompassing a mix of slalom water skiing, wake boarding and surfing.

    In contrast, the Wake Plus hull is specifically designed for wake and wave creation. You can trim the hull and the wake out nicely for social skiing (and run to a top speed of 32kt/59km/h with the Monsoon 450 V8) but for tournament level skiing there are better options within the Malibu range.

    For large, customisable waves and wakes for surfing and wakeboarding, however, the Wakesetter 23 LSV coupled with the Wake Plus hull is the weapon of choice. It is bettered only by the larger 25 LSV.

    The Wake Plus hull has a sharp entry shape at the bow moderating to a shallow vee angle aft for stability. Dual Gorilla fins amidships assist with straight line tracking and cornering, while short, subtle shaped chines at the transom allow for increased hull displacement for a larger wake.

    To demonstrate the Wakesetter 23 LSV's wave surfing and wakeboarding capabilities, we were joined on our boat test by competitive wakeboarder and Malibu's Marketing and Special Events Co-ordinator, Thorry Heaney.

    Thorry's preferred boat speed, ballast level, and Power Wedge angle had already been input into the Viper 2 touch screen display so readying the boat up for Thorry's perfect wave height, angle and length required just one touch of the pre-set button.

    With the boat now squatting down nicely at the stern and ticking along at around 10kt, Thorry stepped out off the rear boarding platform and spent the next few minutes carving up the stunning looking wave created on the left hand wake.

    After a few minutes, we switched the created wave over to the other side by deploying the port side Surf Gate tab before retracting the Surf Gate all together (it operates only in a speed window between 6-11.2kt) and setting the boat up for a few wakeboarding runs with Thorry performing a series of high flying tricks at a pre-set boat speed of 19kt.

    Throughout all of these manoeuvres, the Wakesetter 23 LSV sat rock solid in the water, pumping out large, customisable waves and wakes at the touch of a few buttons.

    Finally, it was time to retract all the wave-making gear and head back to the boat ramp.

    To do this you can simply press the "Go Home" tab on the Viper 2 display and then let the boat's electronic systems do their thing - simultaneously retracting the Power Wedge and Surf Gate (if deployed) and emptying the water ballast tanks.

    The whole process takes just a few moments. It doesn't get any easier than that.


    With its all encompassing boat range there is a Malibu model to suit every pro and recreational tow sports activity. For wakeboarding and surfing, the pick of the Malibu range is the Wakesetter 23 LSV.

    There is a reason the 23 LSV is the world's best selling tow boat. At 7.0m in length it is manageable in size for towing, stowing and launching, and yet it is easily set up to create big wakes and waves tailored to suit beginners through to pro level wakeboarders and surfers.

  • Toby Price Partners with Can-Am.

    May 22, 2018

    2016 Dakar Rally winner and five-time Finke champion Toby Price has partnered with ATV and side-by-side vehicle manufacturer BRP as the official Can-Am Off-Road ambassador for Australia and NZ.

    Price is now the proud new owner of a Can-Am Maverick X3 and will make his first official appearance as a Can-Am ambassador at round two of the CAMS Off-Road Championships, The Finke Desert Race, where he will be racing in both the Car & Bike categories for the ‘Finke Double’.

    With the latest upgrade to enhance its power to 172 horsepower and zero-to-100 KPH in under 5 seconds, the Can-Am Maverick X3 is the best vehicle in its category. 2017 saw the Can-Am Maverick X3 prove its dominance and performance by walking away with the first 13 finishes at The Finke Desert Race.

    “Really stoked to have BRP come onboard with the Can-Am for Finke, it’s a really great tool for us to be able to do a bit of extra pre-running in the desert. It’s an amazing thing, I called into the JWS Powersports the other day and picked up the X3 and I’m really looking forward to being able to get it out for my first run. It will be a great partnership and I can’t wait to see what the X3 is capable of!”

    Sam Heyes, Director of Key Accounts and Strategic Priorities at BRP, is ecstatic to have the Off-Road Rally racer join the Can-Am team and for Toby to get behind the Maverick X3 wheel in Alice Springs early next month when he tests his Trophy Truck for the Finke Desert Race.

    “BRP is delighted to be associated with Toby and to have him as a brand ambassador for Can-Am and we think he fits the profile of our products extremely well.”

    Price is now preparing for the Finke Desert Race 8-11 June.

  • 5 Important Tips for Proper Jet Ski Maintenance

    April 13, 2018

    Buying a jet ski is a significant investment, and your planned budget may be blown out long-term without the right attitude toward preventative care.

    Jet ski maintenance is an ongoing responsibility, with regular and semi-regular checks of certain components necessary to keep your craft in optimal condition. We’ve listed five important considerations you must make to keep your jet ski running smoothly.

    Carefully Read Your Manual

    It’s especially important for first-time jet ski owners to refer to their manual as often as possible. Modern manuals carry details on every component of your PWC, allowing you to better understand how everything works. Never attempt any DIY repairs on your jet ski without knowing exactly what you’re doing, as you can cause more harm than good.

    Flush the Engine

    Regardless of whether you ride in fresh or salt water, your PWC should be flushed after every single ride. Flushing removes salt, sand, algae, weeds, and shells (etcetera) from the engine and prevents damage and corrosion.

    Modern jet skis are fitted with a hose connector for interior cleaning. Simply attach a hose to the connector (hose MUST be turned off) before starting your engine. Once the engine is running, turn the hose on and keep it on for approximately two minutes. Allow your PWC to keep running for a few seconds after turning the hose off, and give the throttle a few twists to drain water from the exhaust. Remember to keep your engine running at all times when adding water to the interior.

    Wash It down After Saltwater Riding

    Modern jet skis are designed to last, but saltwater is corrosive to fiberglass and can lead to problems down the line. First rinse your jet ski, before using warm soapy water and a sponge to thoroughly remove all salt residue. Set your hose to a low pressure when rinsing the soap off.

    Jet ski covers are a wise investment for those who want to keep their craft clean and dry between adventures.

    Conduct Regular Inspections

    Jet skis are resilient and built to absorb minor damage, but will show signs of mechanical wear over time in the same way that cars do. Cracks or fissures in the fiberglass of your jet ski need to be checked by a professional as soon as possible, as hull damage can expose interior components to significant damage.

    It pays to check the components of your jet ski after prolonged use. Once you know where everything is, you’ll be able to confidently check hoses, clamps, wiring, throttle cables and other components to ensure everything is in good working order.

    Book a Service

    Certain checks and replacements should only be made by fully qualified technicians. They’ll be able to take care of the time-consuming jobs that are required semi-regularly.

    You can expect technicians to change your engine oil and filter, lubricate bearing fittings and seals, replace pump oil and generally ensure everything is as it should be.

  • The BEAST Is Here.

    March 22, 2018

    The all new 2018 Can-Am Maverick X3 X rc is now available in Australia.

    It's time to put test your mettle and finally conquer the last mile: the Maverick X3 X rc Turbo R is the latest rock-crawling side-by-side vehicle with the performance and control to crawl over obstacles and leave rivals at the bottom of the heap.

    72" width of ultimate performance

    How far will our engineers push the envelope? At 72-inches of width, the X3 X rc Turbo R maximizes its race-winning geometry with high-performance suspension, wheels, and tires chosen to deliver complete control. If you’re craving a blast across wide-open terrain and routinely put stability to the test, this is the setup for you.

    Industry leading 172 hp turbocharged and intercooled Rotax® ACE engine

    Meet the king of side-by-side engines, the precision-engineered, industry-leading triple-cylinder Rotax ACE engine. Its 172 horsepower* at 7,250 RPM and 124 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 RPM give searing speed, no matter the terrain. Tell your friends: 0-60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds*.
    *Based on BRP internal testing.

    Lockable front differential
    Smart-Lok technology

    For next-level traction to conquer the roughest terrain, Can-Am-exclusive Smart-Lok™* technology is the new benchmark. A true full lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically-controlled automatic modes, or with the simple press of a button that offers preset, intelligent calibrations for your type of riding. Using multiple input sources, "Smart mode” will instantaneously engage locking with the right load at the right moment. Never before have riders been given maximum traction while retaining low-speed maneuverability, allowing optimal placement and a feeling of confidence that allows for the Maverick X3 X rc Turbo R to be unleashed sooner than ever.
    *Smart-Lok was developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, a market leader in the drive train industry.

    Considering the other improvements to the Maverick, the latest 30-inch Maxxis Liberty Tires on 14-inch aluminium beadlock rims could be seen as a minor upgrade, but their aggressive tread and rugged construction are the key to pushing the X3's capabilities further than ever on very rough ground.

    With a full compliment of Heavy-Duty protection gear, from HMW skid plate to UHMW rock sliders, to differential HMW protection and HMW suspension armour, the X rc Turbo R has overbuilt HMW parts where you need them most.

    The Maverick X3 X rs is equipped with fully-adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 PHG Piggyback shocks with bypass and dual-speed compression and rebound (front), and class-leading FOX 3.0 Podium RC2 HPG shocks with remote reservoir with bypass and dual-speed compression and rebound (rear) for ultra-precise performance.

    An 4,500-lb (2,041kg) winch with synthetic rope positions on the front bumper gives the X rc the power to pull itself and your rivals out of the the tough terrain.

  • 4 PWC Riding Mistakes Beginners Often Make

    March 20, 2018

    You often see newcomers to our hobby making basic mistakes that increase their risk of injury or damage to their shiny new jet ski. There is a lot to learn early on, but one bad experience can hurt your back pocket or your future enjoyment of the open water.

    These 4 PWC riding mistakes should be avoided at all costs by beginners.

    Leaning Back Too Far

    You sometimes see jet skis surging through the air like a dolphin with the bow angled up. This can be great fun in experienced hands, but beginners need to know how to keep their PWC planted. You often see bow-rise from beginners who have accelerated too hard from a dead stop.

    To correct this PWC riding issue, you need to shift your feet toward the back of your jet ski and lean forward when accelerating to keep your ski planted.

    Spinning out or Losing Control

    One of the most common causes of PWC riding injuries is sliding or spinning out. Newer jet skis are much more controllable than their older counterparts, but the wrong handling techniques can still throw you off your PWC and put you at risk of injury.

    Modern PWCs encourage riders to lean into their turns. If you feel unsteady on your craft doing so, you need to change your foot placement for stability. Keep your foot that is on the inside section of the turn as far forward in the footwell as possible, and move your outside foot to the back of the footwell. This keeps the rear of your jet ski low and gives you the leverage you need to make a turn safely.

    Setting the Trim for Speed over Safety

    Most modern jet skis come standard with adjustable trim features that allow for a variety of riding preferences. This is achieved by adjusting the angle of the unit, which in turn lifts the nose of  your PWC out of the water or keeps it low.

    If the nose of your PWC is set high, less of the jet ski is underwater which reduces drag and increases the potential for high speed riding. The downside of this is less responsive steering and potential risk for beginner riders. Those getting used to PWC riding should keep the angle low to increase stability.

    Choosing to Sit When the Going Gets Rough

    Though it won’t put you in immediate danger, choosing to sit while riding your PWC in very choppy surf can tire you out quickly. Your spine and lower back can cop a battering from the constant impact, and you run the risk of injury if you carry on for too long.

    Standing allows you to see the conditions ahead better, and your legs do a much better job of absorbing the impacts when they do come.

    A Wide Range of Jet Skis from the World's Leading Sea-Doo Supplier

    PWC beginners are well catered for here at JSW Powersports. We offer Spark, Recreation, Tow Sports, Luxury and Performance jet skis from Sea-Doo, the best in the business.

    It’s not just jet-skis at JSW. We are suppliers of the best products from Can-Am, Malibu, Sea Fox and Evinrude. For any enquiries about our range, give us a call on (07) 5529 2616 or visit our store at 3 Ereton Drive Arundel Monday through Saturday.

  • Buying a Personal Watercraft - 6 Jet Ski Tips to Consider Before You Make a Purchase

    February 21, 2018

    6 Jet Ski Tips to Consider Before You Make a Purchase-blog

    Buying your first jet ski can be a daunting experience - there’s a huge range of options and accessories to choose from, and you don’t want to make the wrong decision on such a major investment.

    Follow these 6 jet ski tips to ensure you get a PWC that suits your needs and gives you countless hours of joy.

    Set a Realistic Budget

    There are more costs to buying a PWC than you might think. Besides the craft itself, you will have to think about a license, life jackets, a trailer for transportation and even installation of a tow bar if your car doesn’t have one. Once you factor all of this into you budget, you might not have enough left for the PWC your heart is set on.

    Consider If You Will Ever Be Taking Passengers

    There’s nothing quite like being out on the open water yourself, but newer PWC models can comfortably carry up to four people at a time. It’s worth considering if you’ll ever take passengers when planning a PWC purchase.

    If you’re unsure, we recommend sticking with a smaller PWC for personal use. Larger models can be a little harder to ride, and you might want to stick with a more controllable jet ski in the meantime.

    Do You Need a Model Capable of Towing?

    More experienced riders might want to consider a PWC capable of towing water skiiers and boarders before they make a purchase.

    JSW Powersports stock the Sea-Doo Wake Pro 230 for those after the best towing experience on the market.

    Think About Your Riding Plans

    Not all jet skis are one and the same - most dealerships will have entry-level, luxury and high performance models to choose from. Do your research online before you go instore, as you don’t want to end up with more power or maintenance costs than you can handle.

    Understand What Your Warranty Covers

    A PWC is a major investment, and new buyers should read the fine print in their warranty to fully understand their coverage. Most PWCs will come with a basic warranty that covers major components such as the engine, steering, pumps, seals and gaskets. Comprehensive warranties that cover all mechanical parts are also available. Choose a warranty level that provides you with adequate peace of mind, as you don’t want to spend your time out on the water worrying about potential damage.

    Hold Firm Regarding Accessories

    It’s easy to be swayed into buying a heap of accessories you don’t need. At JSW Powersports we can assist and help you get a feel for your craft and find your jet ski essentials. We will find the right requisite safety equipment, gear and accessories for your jet-ski adventures.

  • Can-Am Maverick X3 WINS The 2018 Dakar Rally!

    January 24, 2018

    Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicle shines in its first time participating in Dakar with a victory from Reinaldo Varela’s crew supported by South Racing Can-Am

    Valcourt, Quebec, January 22, 2018 – Pride is justifiably high at BRP (TSX:DOO) with the resounding victory of South Racing Can-Am drivers Reinaldo Varela and Gustavo Gugelmin from Brazil in the side-by-side (SxS) class of the 40th edition of the Dakar Rally in South America.

    The winners piloted the award-winning Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicle, which made a remarkable entry in the world’s toughest and biggest rally.

    “This amazing victory achieved in very difficult conditions shows how BRP’s unrelenting focus on innovation gives birth to best-in-class products,” said Anne-Marie LaBerge, senior vice-president, Global Brands and Communication. “For us, racing is an exciting testing ground to create the best possible experience for our consumers.”

    The Varela-Gugelmin crew completed the Dakar Rally in 72 hours, 44 minutes and 6 seconds, almost an hour ahead of its closest competitor. Another South Racing Can-Am crew, composed of Leonel Larrauri and Fernando Imperatrice, won the final stage Saturday in Córdoba, Argentina. Juan Carlos Uribe Ramos and Javier Uribe Godoy from the Can-Am Peru team also had a great race until they had to drop out, two days before the arrival.

    “To have the Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicle win the side-by-side class in its first ever attempt in Dakar, the world’s most difficult race, is outstanding,” noted Olivier Camus, Director of Global

    Product Strategy at Can-Am. “It’s a clear demonstration that we have an industry-leading platform that will allow consumers and racers alike conquer the most challenging terrain imaginable.”

    Introduced in August 2016, the Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicle had a stellar first year on the racing circuit, winning three major championships in North America as well as several races elsewhere in the world. Last fall, BRP once more expanded the Can-Am Maverick X3 family by introducing a value-driven model, the 900 HO, and a mud-ready package.

  • Essential Jet Ski Equipment

    January 19, 2018

    Essential Jet Ski Equipment-blog-jetski-2

    A new year is upon us, and new riders will be looking for the equipment necessary to make their PWC experience as satisfying as possible. By buying the right equipment now and using it properly, you can help protect the long-term value of your craft.

    Here is a list of jet ski essentials that will help protect both yourself and your new pride and joy.

    Waterproof Phone Case

    Most modern riders want their phone with them out on the water, but most smartphones don’t fare too well when exposed to the elements. JSW Powersports stock a range of items for water protection, ranging from aqua cases for specific iPhone models to more general storage options for your electronics.

    For the more budget conscious, a waterproof universal phone pouch such as the Overboard IP66 will keep your smartphone dry when you’re out on the water.

    Jet Ski Lock

    Your PWC is a serious investment, so it makes sense to put a few extra dollars into ensuring it doesn’t get stolen. You don’t need to spend a huge amount for peace of mind, as all-purpose locks will do the trick. JSW Powersports stock an On Guard U-Lock and an On Guard Combo DT U-Lock to protect your PWC from theft.

    Jet Ski Anchor

    If you want to stop and enjoy the conditions while out on the water, you’re going to need a jet ski anchor. There are a variety of anchors available for your PWC, but not all of them are ideal due to their size and the size of your jet ski.

    When it comes to portability and convenience, it is hard to go past folding anchors such as the Jet Pilot Complete Folding Anchor System. Sand Anchor Bags are a cheaper option but require a bit of extra preparation from the user.

    PWC Life Jacket

    No list of jet ski essentials is complete without a quality life jacket. Life jackets are compulsory for good reason - there are a number of things that can go wrong at speed out on the open water.

    We stock a wide range of life jackets suitable for men, women and children. It’s always good to have a spare on hand in case you want to take a guest out for a ride.

    Folding Paddle

    A quality folding paddle is super handy if the unexpected happens and your engine cuts out completely. It is possible for rope to get tangled around your driveshaft, causing you to lose all power. In this situation, a folding paddle will save you a fair bit of grief if you are a long way from shore.

    PWC Fenders

    Fenders make our list of jet ski essentials due to their role in protecting your PWC when it’s docked. Two well-placed fenders will defend your PWC against hull damage. We stock  inexpensive fenders that hook under the rub rail and effectively prevent against scratches.

    Visit Our Online Store for a Wide Range of Jet Ski Essentials

    A bit of preparation and diligence goes a long way as a PWC owner. Here at JSW Powersports, we run an online store that includes a huge range of powersport and jet ski essentials. We are your one-stop provider for all powersports, including everything from Sea Fox boats to side-by-side ATVs .

    To get in contact with our friendly team for more information, you can give us a call on (07) 5529 2616 or visit us Monday through Saturday at 3 Ereton Drive, Arundel.

    We have done it yet again. Five years in a row. The World's Largest Sea-Doo Dealership.

    The biggest Sea-Doo dealership in the world - JSW Powersports based on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. 11.01.2018


    Read our story -

    JSW Powersports started out in humble beginnings back in 1998 with a small workshop servicing personal watercraft's. Over the last 19 years we have grown into becoming the largest Sea-Doo dealer in Australia and have now been awarded the coveted title The Number One Sea-Doo dealer in the world. This is no small feat for a Gold Coast based business considering the worldwide scale of the personal watercraft industry today.

    We started selling all brands of PWC under the name Jet Ski Warehouse in 2001. The business grew in leaps and bounds and we soon outgrew our premises forcing us to move in 2011 to Ereton Drive in Arundel. Along with this move we became JSW Powersports the Sea-Doo dealer on the Gold Coast and are now Australia’s flagship Sea-Doo store. Our trademark ‘Great wall of Sea-Doo’ made from crates of new PWC contains stock of the full Sea-Doo range giving our customers a wider range of choice when purchasing their Sea-Doo. We believe you should be able to walk away with your purchase... At JSW Powersports you can!

    We are the Australian Distributor of Sea Fox Boats, the 6th largest boat manufacturer in the US, and carry a number of boats from the Sea Fox Range. After owning a Sea Fox himself our company owner Jeff McNiven felt that this evolving brand had to be available to the Australian market. Nearly 20 years ago, Sea Fox Boat Company began with a clear governing philosophy at heart: to develop and build quality hand-crafted saltwater boats that are durable, dependable and affordable. The outcome is a fantastic product that is rapidly taking over the Australian market.

    As of 2017 JSW was appointed as the Gold Coast's only authorised Malibu and Axis boat dealer. Known world wide as a water sports destination, the Gold Coast offers residents and visitors a paradise of long sandy beaches, amazing surfing spots and many in land canal sand waterways making Malibu and Axis Boats a perfect pair with the Gold Coast lifestyle.
    Now JSW will be able to make the boats more accessible for our customers.

    The growth and success of JSW Powersports is directly related to the passion our team shows towards the industry as well as understanding our customer’s needs.

  • JSW Powersports Case Study - By David Lockwood.

    December 20, 2017



    JSW Powersports Team


    Catering to this evolving market, JSW Powersports on the Gold Coast is quite a remarkable business. It is, in fact, the biggest dealer of Sea-Doo watercraft in the world. It also sells Sea Fox fishing boats and, a recent addition, Malibu towsports boats. Got those bases covered.

    For the fifth consecutive year, this bustling dealership in Arundel has sold more Sea-Doos than any other dealer including Riva MotorSports in Pompano Beach, Florida, where the business profile is huge and the Hispanic community loves to ride.

    Sea-Doo, the market leader in the PWC segment, includes an on-water braking device on most of its PWC's.

    Our maths reveals that JSW Powersports does more than $15m in Sea-Doo turnover annually from sales that have more than doubled in the last five years.
    Jeff McNiven, dealer principal at JSW Powersports, says last year [2016-2017], they sold more than 800 units. This figure is growing annually as the dealership grows and develops further.
    “We sell just under quarter of all Sea-Doo units nationally,” he says. “The best selling Sea-Doo on the Gold Coast is far and away the GTR-230, an aggressive muscle craft with an attractive look and affordable price point.

    Interestingly, there is no stereotypical buyer of a Sea-Doo and not one demographic as such.

    “We sell PWCs to 16 year olds right through to grey nomads that want to get out on the water and have a blast! We have a PWC to suit every age bracket,” McNiven enthuses.
    “We will also continue to hold our local Ride Day events and will start to look at new and existing routes as numbers increase after each event.”
    “Our last Ride Day we had just under 200 PWCs on the water.”
    There are owner’s information nights that explain how best to maintain your Sea-Doo and JSW Powersports has factory-trained technicians on the floor. All of the Sea-Doos [bar one model] have Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR).
    “It’s just a huge selling point. Everyone is asking for brakes these days,” McNiven told boatsales and BoatPoint.

    NEW 2018 PWC'S


    At the time of writing, the successful JSW Powersports team was heading to the Club BRP global dealer event in Dallas in September, 2017, where the new 2018 Sea-Doo models will be released.
    Yamaha’s 2018 models will come out about the same time. It’s also great to see Kawasaki returning to the PWC market in a bigger way in 2017, with its new Jet Ski SX-R stand-up offering more power from the latest four-stroke engine while adding improved handling from a bigger fibreglass V-hull.

    ST3 HULL

    With styling that’s aggressive and sporty, the new Jet Ski SX-R hopes to create a new generation of stand-up riders — the original Kawasaki Jet Ski dates back to 1976 — chasing big performance and/or a hot new platform for competitive racing.
    Certainly speed and performance are part of the appeal of the latest PWCs. But there’s also something else… price! For $10-$25k, buyers get a great ride, loads of fun, and a compact water craft they can store in the unit lock-up. Give a PWC a try.

    “We sell PWCs to 16 year olds right through to grey nomads that want to get out on the water and have a blast!”

    –Jeff McNiven,
    Dealer Principal at JSW Powersports Gold Coast.

  • 6 Jet Ski Safety Tips

    December 16, 2017

    Summer has officially arrived, and with it always comes a host of new jet ski riders. While we welcome new riders to the fold, accidents and ignorance can turn your jet ski dream into a nightmare.

    For those new to our pastime, follow these 6 tips for jet ski safety to keep the water safe for yourself and the people around you.

    1. Wear a Lifejacket

    This is a non-negotiable for jet ski safety. Maritime Safety Queensland mandates that you must wear a lifejacket when operating a PWC in any waterway. There is significant scope for injury when operating a jet ski, and lifejackets are compulsory in case you are knocked unconscious when operating your PWC.

    2. Don't Operate a PWC When Under the Influence

    Jet skiing is a fun and casual summer hobby, but many new riders do not realise exactly how dangerous it can be. Collisions are the most common accident that occurs when operating a PWC, and riding under the influence increases the risk. You are less likely to discern safety hazards, other riders and swimmers, and more likely to become distracted.

    3. Always Be Aware of Your Surroundings

    In the same way that you do when learning to drive a car or motorcycle, it is important to be fully aware of your surroundings when operating a jet ski. If you cross the wake of another boat or PWC you can impair your own vision of approaching craft, as well as making it difficult for craft heading in your direction to see you quickly enough to divert course.

    4. Keep Your Jet Ski Well-Maintained

    All PWC owners have a general safety obligation to keep their craft in good condition when in use. Oil or fuel spills can cause environmental damage, and rescuers will have to place their own lives at risk if you become stranded on a defective jet ski.

    5. Keep Your Speed Under Control

    Beginner PWC riders can put themselves and others at risk by speeding, especially as they are not fully aware of the capabilities of their jet ski. Ensure jet ski safety by keeping your speed below six knots if you are within 60 metres of people in the water or moored boats.

    Once you gain some experience and take to the open water, always remember to keep 30 metres away from other boats and PWC when travelling at speed.

    6. Take Particular Care near the Shoreline

    Maritime Safety Queensland rules state that you must travel at no faster than six knots when within 60 metres of the shoreline. This includes heading back to land after a session out on the water. Swimmers can be hard to spot in choppy swell as you return to shore, so make sure you keep your speed down and your senses alert on the way in.

  • Jet Ski Riding Tips - Get the Most out of Your PWC

    December 5, 2017


    Summer is upon us in Australia, and across the country there are people dipping their toes into the world of jet skiing. Here at JSW Powersports, we believe there is no better way to escape the everyday.

    No-one wants to look like a beginner on their PWC, so we have put together some jet ski riding tips to help you start out with confidence and save face with your mates.

    1. Board from the Back

    You’ve got your PWC in the water, now it’s time to climb aboard with grace. Resist the temptation to climb on from the side, as some skis can flip if you put all your weight on the edge. You will find a handle directly behind the seat on most skis that will help you climb on easily - if you’re riding with a passenger, make sure you climb on one at a time.

    2. Straight as an Arrow

    It’s not something that beginners think will be a problem, but keeping your ski on a constant bearing when you’re starting out is easier said than done. Beginners will often look at the handlebars or the water just in front of their craft to see if they’re going straight, but you’re better off looking towards the horizon to stay in the right direction.

    3. Keep a Finger on the Throttle for Safety

    For beginners, the instinct when approaching a dangerous situation is to stop accelerating and turn away, but this won’t help you. As steering is achieved by the movement of the jets that propel your craft, you need to keep accelerating while turning away when facing a hazard. It might feel a little unusual for those used to slowing down and braking when driving a car, but you get used to it quickly. Sea-Doo watercraft do feature Off-Throttle Assisted Steering, which allows for greater control than other PWC in off-throttle situations.

    4. Minimise Impact

    You’ve got accustomed to your ski, and now you’re seeing how fast it can go. When your ski first lifts off the water, make sure you lift your body off the seat a little before impact, because it can be jarring when you hit the water. Once you learn to prevent these impacts, you’ll get to love airborne moments.

    5. Relax, Just Not Too Much

    Hand, arm and shoulder fatigue are common complaints from riders after their first water excursion, and it can usually be attributed to being too tense and hanging on too tight when you start out. You can prevent this by leaning forward with a relaxed grip and keeping your body loose, but always be prepared for hazards that might present.

    6. Beginner and Advanced Jet Skis from JSW Powersports

    While these jet ski riding tips relate only to beginners, JSW Powersports is proud to be regarded as the leading supplier of Sea-Doo jet skis for sale, suiting riders of all skill levels.

    Our Sea-Doo range includes all industry-leading Spark, Tow Sports, Luxury, Recreation and Performance models, and we even sell pre-loved skis for those looking to make a smaller investment. We also stock a range of accessories to make your jet skiing experience safer and more enjoyable.

    To view our range, you can visit us Monday through Saturday at 3 Ereton Drive, Arundel, 4214. For any enquiries, call (07) 5529 2616 or make use of our online contact page.

  • Yet another successful RIDE DAY!

    October 16, 2017


    A good-natured and benevolent bunch of some 70 PWC riders contributed to an upbeat JSW Powersports charity PWC Ride Day last Sunday (October 8, 2017), covering around 160km round trip from Southport to Manly and back again.

    All the participating PWCs had a Red Nose sticker on their ‘bonnets’ and all the proceeds from the rider’s registrations went to the well-deserving Red Nose charity.
    The charity day started bright and early at Broadwater Parklands in Southport with some 70 PWC riders geared up and ready to ride from the beach. Prizes were given to riders who were dressed up in costumes on the day in honour of the charity theme.
    The fleet headed out after an informative rider’s briefing conducted by Australian Jet Ski Association. This covered the day’s schedule and general safety information.
    Riders of all levels were part of the fleet that headed out with expert guidance by AJSA marshals and JSW Powersports crew.
    The first stage of the ride traversed the calm waters of Broadwater, with a first stop at Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club on South Stradbroke Island for coffee and muffins and a rest. Plenty of sponsors had donated prizes which were raffled off to several lucky winners at the sunny island location.
    The next stage saw riders continue on through the beautiful waterways and islands of Moreton Bay such as Jumpinpin, North Stradbroke island, Russel Island and up past Peel island to reach the Brisbane waterfront suburb of Manly.

    The Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club at Manly put on a great feed with cold drinks and a shady relaxing break for all the PWC riders. Entertainment was provided with music and with live feeds throughout the day broadcasted via Rebel FM radio. There were more prize raffles donated by generous sponsors.
    The feedback from participants was very positive and Jeff McNiven, director of JSW Powersports, said these ride days are all about giving back to the community, the needy, customers and creating a PWC experience they may not be confident to try on their own.
    "These days PWCs are the new trailerboat that lets riders get out there to explore all the waterways and there really is a PWC for each type of rider," he said.

    For information about future Ride Days contact JSW Powersports.

  • Meet The 2018 Sea-Doo Line Up.

    September 22, 2017


    Meet the future of Sea-Doo.

    BRP introduced an ingenious new platform on select 2018 Sea-Doo models © BRP 2017

    • Added comfort, integrated audio and smarter storage on select models
    • New hull sets the industry benchmark for stability at rest and at speed
    • Sea-Doo SPARK TRIXX 3-UP added to playful Rec Lite family

    Dallas, Texas, Sept. 20, 2017 – BRP (TSX:DOO) announces an entirely new platform for select models in its 2018 Sea-Doo lineup of personal watercraft. With BRP’s obsession to provide the best consumer experience possible, this innovative platform transforms the onboard experience and extends the possibilities of activities riders can do with a Sea- Doo personal watercraft. The new platform, which sets the industry benchmark for its stability and control, is available on seven models across the Sea-Doo GTX, RXT and WAKE PRO families.

    To ensure consumers maximum comfort, the new personal watercraft has a smart reconfigurable rear seat that transforms the watercraft into an onboard living room. It changes quickly from a 3-seat configuration to a flat lounge area, where two people can face each other for a picnic lunch. When removed, the larger, flatter rear deck makes reboarding easier and more stable. Now people can enjoy more time on the water to relax and soak in the surroundings.

    Adding to the onboard experience is the industry’s first manufacturer-installed, truly waterproof, Bluetooth audio system. With a simple swipe of a finger, riders can now enjoy their favorite playlists on this powerful stereo while relaxing on their PWC rear deck, for a full experience. There is also improved storage to allow people to enjoy longer-period on the water and have a

    full day of fun. The storage includes a waterproof, shockproof compartment for a phone with USB charger, as well as direct-access front storage with no standing required.

    “This new Sea-Doo platform brings the personal watercraft to the next level,” said Bernard Guy, SVP Global Product Strategy at BRP. “Everything was ingeniously designed and built to enhance the consumer experience on water. Riding a Sea-Doo watercraft is fun, with this new platform, we extend the exhilaration.”

    The platform stability and control

    The new platform’s stability and control starts with a lower centre of gravity, which provides more confidence in rough water, at high speeds, and with three passengers*. It is also wider for easier re-boarding and movement around the watercraft. Combine those with a new, deep-V hull that increases performance in rough water and provides better control while cornering, and you’ve got the best of all worlds.

    In addition to the new platform, BRP also unveiled a Sea-Doo SPARK TRIXX 3-UP with extended seat and rear platform. It maintains the same level of fun as the hugely-successful 2-UP model launched last year, but with an additional passenger and tow sports capability. Pulling off tricks is so easy and so much fun across the entire lineup, you’ll never want the day to end. Simply put, it’s the most versatile entry-level watercraft ever built.

    There are additional enhancements across the entire 2018 Sea-Doo family, including Performance, Luxury, Tow Sports, and Recreation segments.

    With the widest selection of models in the industry, BRP offers the right Sea-Doo to fit any adventure, at a price that makes it possible**.

  • Meet The 2018 Can-Am Line Up.

    September 22, 2017



    2018 Can-Am Maverick Trail models are the first trail-specific Can-Am side-by-side vehicles. © BRP 2017

    • Can-Am enters trail segment with new Maverick Trail side-by-side vehicles
    • New technical crawling-specific Can-Am Maverick X3 X rc models
    • Three new specialized Can-Am Defender utility side-by-side vehicles

    Dallas, Texas, Sept. 20, 2017 – BRP (TSX: DOO) unveils four new 50”-wide Can-Am Maverick Trail side-by-side vehicles at its annual dealer meeting in Dallas, TX. People can now enjoy the Maverick experience while accessing trails and tucked-away locations with ease. With their innovative design and extreme agility, Maverick Trail vehicles enhance the consumer experience and allow people to explore with confidence.

    The Maverick Trail vehicle is conceived to bring one of the best experiences to people with its bold Can-Am Maverick X3 heritage and its ingenious convenience features. Every feature is purpose-built to maximize consumer comfort, vehicle stability, and handling – a must for people who are looking for a full day of adventures.

    “The Can-Am Maverick Trail lineup introduces our incredible X3 pedigree to trail exploration,” said Bernard Guy, Senior Vice President, Global Product Strategy at BRP.

    The fun doesn’t stop on the trail, though, as BRP also introduced two new technical crawling-specific models for 2018 – the 172hp Can-Am Maverick X3 X rc TURBO R and the 120hp Maverick X3 X rc TURBO. Rugged crawling is extremely popular (and growing), and BRP went to the rocks to gain real-world insight from owners before finalizing the design.

    One critical takeaway for the best possible user experience was the need for a fully-lockable front differential. In response, the Can-Am team created a technology called Smart-Lok™*,

    which is an ingenious fully-lockable on-the-fly front differential with electronically-controlled automatic modes. That smart technology enhances the riding experience and amounts to traction in extreme conditions.

    Maverick X3 X rc models are specifically designed for maximum maneuverability even at low speeds with a high ground clearance and large, specialized tires. They also come loaded with features for maximum protection including rock sliders, front and rear suspension protectors, and a front differential guard for enhanced defense against harsh terrain and rocks.

    On the utility side of the lineup, BRP introduced three new specialty packages to its Can-Am Defender model family, each purpose-built for a specific, enhanced ride experience:

    • The Defender X mr HD10 is a mud-ready vehicle that’s built to tackle grimy conditions with ease. It also has a Smart-Lok front differential, and along with other tough and clever elements, is built from the ground up so people can conquer harsh environments.
    • The Defender XT-P brings performance to the workhorse-oriented Defender XT lineup, with upgraded shocks, multiple driving modes, and more. It’s an ideal balance between performance, comfort and convenience, and is packed with a sportier look.
    • The Defender MAX LONE STAR HD10 complements the swagger and grit of the Texas rancher and outdoorsman. It’s the perfect tool for day-to-day ranching tasks while making sure people stand out from the crowd. It features painted deep metallic black coloration, Lone Star trim, and heavy-duty components such as a steel front bumper and full hard roof.

    A selection of these models will be available in Australia and New Zealand later in the year. For additional information and technical specs on these new models, as well as two all-new youth ATV models.

    * Smart-Lok™ was developed in conjunction with TEAM Industries, a market leader in the drive train industry.

  • Officially, The World's No.1 Sea-Doo Dealer!

    August 18, 2017
    Published : Thursday, 17 August 2017
    This Gold Coast dealership has sold more Sea-Doos than any other retailer in the world... and for the fifth year running!

    It’s almost hard to believe JSW Powersports in suburban Arundel, Queensland, is the biggest Sea-Doo dealer in the world. But head to the Gold Coast retailer and you can't help but notice something big is going on. There’s almost as much stock being unloaded and piled high as there are new ‘skis’ whizzing out the doors and skipping around the waterways. The numbers don’t lie.

    For the fifth consecutive year, this bustling dealership has sold more Sea-Doos than any other dealer worldwide. That includes Riva MotorSports in Pompano Beach, Florida, where the business profile is huge and the Hispanic community loves to ride. Not that JSW Powersports is flying under the radar, mind you, with the biggest Sea-Doo ride day in Australia.

    Our maths reveals that JSW Powersports does more than $15m in Sea-Doo turnover annually from sales that have more than doubled in the last five years. This tells an even bigger story globally...

    The record Sea-Doo sales at JSW Powersports year-on-year reflect the rising popularity of watercraft around the world.

    According to a recent study into US boating use by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, 142 million households went boating in America in 2016.

    It was found that first-time boaters were more likely than other active boaters to use personal watercraft (PWC), suggesting that watercraft are a gateway to boating.

    In Australia, there is an average of 15,000 new vessel registrations every year, but there are 68,000 PWCs registrations — making this the fastest-growing sector of all powered vessels.

    Jeff McNiven, dealer principal at JSW Powersports, is chuffed to win the title of biggest dealer again.

    "Last year [2016-2017], we sold more than 800 units. This figure is growing annually as our dealership grows and develops further.

    'While working closely with BRP, we sell just under quarter of all Sea-Doo units nationally," he says.

    "The best selling Sea-Doo on the Gold Coast is far and away the GTR-230, an aggressive muscle craft with an attractive look and affordable price point.

    "But there is no stereotypical buyer of a Sea-Doo and not one demographic as such.

    "We sell PWCs to 16 year olds right through to grey nomads that want to get out on the water and have a blast! We have a PWC to suit every age bracket," Jeff tells us.

    "We will also continue to hold our local Ride Day events and will start to look at new and existing routes as numbers increase after each event.

    "Our last Ride Day we had just under 200 PWCs on the water."

    With more than 1000 square metres of indoor and outdoor showroom space, JSW Powersports backs up it sales with a large range of accessories and a full service centre.

    There are owner’s information nights that explain how best to maintain your Sea-Doo and JSW Powersports has factory-trained technicians on the floor.

    "All of the Sea-Doos [bar one model] have Intelligent Brake and Reverse (iBR). It’s just a huge selling point. Everyone is asking for brakes these days," McNiven told boatsales and BoatPoint.

    At the time of writing, the successful JSW Powersports team was heading to the Club BRP global dealer event in Dallas in September, 2017, where the new 2018 Sea-Doo models will be released.

    BRP has big, industry shaping news, we’re reliably told in our media invitation, so watch this space!

    And, right now, there’s a massive sale at JSW Powersports with up to $3500 off some Sea-Doo models.

    More information at Sea-Doo and JSW Powersports.


    The success of JSW Powersports is directly related to the on going support of the local Gold Coast community.

    Thank you Gold Coast.

    The team at JSW Powersports and residents of the Gold Coast are pleased that The Spit is now secured.
    We can continue to keep our most favourite boating destination alive for future generations.

    Thank you Gold Coast.

    - Media Statement from Queensland State Government-

    The Palaszczuk Government has terminated the proposed ASF development on the Gold Coast Spit and will move forward with a community-led master plan.
    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the decision was based on ensuring the best long term solution for the Gold Coast.
    "Like many Queenslanders, I have enjoyed visiting the Spit for decades," Ms Palaszczuk said.

    "We need to ensure that character is preserved for future generations."The Spit offers great opportunities for job creation through tourism, entertainment and recreation. "What the Spit really needs now is a master plan to revitalise it and increase its benefit to the Gold Coast as a community asset."
    "To be clear, this is not a decision that rules out a future Integrated Resort Development on the Gold Coast."Deputy Premier and Minister for Infrastructure and Planning Jackie Trad said the master plan process would ensure the best outcomes for the community.

    “The masterplan that we’re committing to deliver today ensures a future for the Spit which is in accordance with Gold Coast Council’s planning scheme, including the three-storey height limit,” Ms Trad said.
    “It helps get the balance right between protecting environmental and community values and allowing appropriate commercial development." It is expected the master plan will take 18 months to complete. It will be undertaken in collaboration with Gold Coast City Council and the Gold Coast Waterways Authority.

  • The biggest Sea-Doo Ride Day in Australia

    May 18, 2017
    Almost 200 riders take to the Gold Coast waterways for the biggest JSW Powersports Ride Day ever

    The world’s biggest Sea-Doo dealer, JSW Powersport on the Gold Coast, staged a massive ride day on Sunday, May 7, with almost 200 riders hitting the local waterways under the professional guidance of expert crew.

    The popular ride day entailed 55km of 'Sea-Dooing from the boat ramp at The Spit, out the Seaway and around South Stradbroke Island, before returning to Broadwater through notorious Jumpinpin Bar.

    With its shallow waterways, sandy channels, banks and surf beaches, the Gold Coast is tailor made for exploring by nimble, shallow-draft watercraft. Every weekend, surfers score tow-ins, fishos hit the local reefs and troll for mackerel, and scores of fun-seekers can be seen just touring the clear waters.

    Under the guidance of JSW Powersports staff, both experienced and beginner riders were all able to take part in a great Gold Coast experience, while acquiring new skills and learn how to master their Sea-Doos in a variety of conditions.

    Sunny skies and calm weather added to the upbeat tmosphere as did the beautiful setting of Tipplers Resort café, which was a designated stopover for a waterside breakfast and relax. The Sea-FM team staged live crosses and giveaways.

    Jeff McNiven, Principal of JSW Powersports, didn’t hold back in covering his massive ride day. He had a photographer in a helicopter taking some great shots, a Sea Fox 288 Commander chase boat put to sea, and a JSW demo Malibu 21 VLX on the Broadwater route with wakeboarders on board.

    "Our well-managed events give riders of all levels more confidence and skills so they can experience a PWC ride that they may not otherwise try on their own.

    "The feedback from our loyal customers and local riders has been fantastic and we will continue to organise more of these events in the future," McNiven said.

    Can-Am shook the performance SSV world in August 2016 with the release of the game changing Maverick X3. Continuing the innovation that drives BRP, the engineers at Can-Am set about re-thinking the SSV, seeking inspiration from outside the industry to push performance to the next level. Taking trophy truck inspired suspension, paired with a built from the ground up chassis and powered by a 154hp Rotax Triple cylinder power plant the Maverick X3 is truly revolutionary.



    Low seats, bold stance: The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle has a low seating position that encapsulates both driver and passenger so they feel at one with the vehicle and connected to its every move. This bold configuration allows drivers to quickly interpret vehicle attitude and react to maximize performance.

    Ergoprint seats: The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle features driver-focused, rally car-like seating for optimal positioning and ergonomics. Its unique ErgoPrint seat shape is ideal for support and weight distribution, providing excellent comfort and bump absorption. The one-piece molded seats are four-way adjustable –5.1 cm in height and 15.2 cm in forward-rearward slide. They sit on mud-proof supports and have removable cushions for easy cleaning.

    Easy to accessorise: The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle is extremely easy to accessorize. For example, it is 4-point or 5-point harness ready, there are available door fillers, roof installation is quick and doesn’t require tools, and there is an integrated wiring channel and ground post for easy electronics installation.



    New TTX rear suspension: The Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R side-by-side vehicle features an industry-leading 24 inches (61 cm) of suspension travel. BRP developed an allnew four-link TTX suspension, which features a trophy truck-like trailing arm and three links that control wheel toe for optimal geometry during extra high wheel travel. Components are perfectly matched for unparalleled power transfer to the wheels with virtually no bump steer. The suspension system also offers precision control, traction and more confidence at higher speeds.  The Maverick X3 X ds Turbo R vehicle has a very comfortable and capable 20 inches (50.8 cm) of rear suspension travel to enhance the off-road riding experience.

    New front A-arm suspension: The Can-Am Maverick X3 X rs Turbo R has a trophy-truck inspired front architecture with an arched double tubular A-Arm and sway bar. The setup  significantly increases ground clearance (total of up to 15 inches) and approach angle capacity and also supplies 22 inches (55.9 cm) of travel. The Maverick X3 X ds Turbo R packages has 20 inches (50.8 cm) of travel up front.

    State of the art fox shocks: The Maverick X3 X ds features fully-adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 HPG Piggyback shock with front and rear dual-speed compression and rebound adjustments, as well as rear bottom-out control to give the driver flexibility to fit the terrain and preferred driving style. The top-of-the-line Maverick X3 X rs package features fully-adjustable FOX 2.5 Podium RC2 PHG Piggyback shocks with bypass and dual-speed compression and rebound (front), and class-leading FOX 3.0 Podium RC2 HPG shocks with remote reservoir and bypass, paired with dual-speed compression and rebound adjustments (rear) for ultra-precise performance.

    Ultra-light and rigid chassis: The Can-Am Maverick X3 features an ultralight, rigid chassis made of state-of-the-art Dual-Phase 980 steel, which is lighter than traditional steel. This allows the chassis to deliver 53% better torsional stiffness while being 20% lighter than its closest competitor. The Can-Am Maverick X3 cage is made of state-of-the-art Dual-Phase 980 steel, which is extremely light and rigid. It is a 4.7 cm tubular, fully welded design – no bolts, no extra pieces – with dedicated servicing zones in case of repair or replacement. It is fully ROHVA compliant and creates a protective barrier around both driver and passenger.

    Extraordinary braking power: The Can-Am Maverick X3 vehicles all have the same braking package for superior stopping performance. The vehicle includes large, twin piston calipers and 262 mm discs up front, and twin piston calipers and 248 mm discs at the rear. Each has high-performance brake pads for superior control. Also beneficial is the master cylinder being located inside the cockpit for better protection.



    Industry leading performance: The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle has 154 hp at 7,500 RPM and 113 lb-ft of torque at 7,000 RPM and has the ability to go from 0-60 MPH in 4.9 seconds. Power comes from an inline triple-cylinder, turbocharged and intercooled Rotax ACE 900cc engine. The hearty power plant is located in the rear of the chassis, resulting in lower cockpit noise, vibration and heat. It also has iridium spark plugs, which provide improved combustion, longer life and lower maintenance.

    High response QRS-X CVT: The Can-Am Maverick X3 side-by-side vehicle has a high performance QRS-X CVT transmission in a compact gearbox that’s optimized to work in combination with the turbo to virtually eliminate turbo lag and enhance throttle response without torque interruption. It has a smooth and predictable engagement, and stays at an optimal RPM so the focus can be on driving and overall performance instead of shifting, even in the most severe conditions like hill climbing or muddy terrain.

    All this combines to create a Defiant, Precise and Powerful SSV that is sure to take the Australian SSV market by storm.

  • Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) demonstrates BRP Can-Am & Sea-Doo reliability through 2015/2016 Season.

    March 23, 2016

    As the end of another highly successful Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) season comes to an end, 71 days of gruelling patrols were made all the more easy with legendary performance and durably of Can-Am side-by-side commander 800, Sea-Doo GTI 130hp and Evinrude E-TEC 25HP.

    “BRP products are powerful lifesaving tools. They enable surf lifesavers and lifeguards to move around the beach and water quickly. This means patrolling and rescues can be performed with greater efficiency and rapid response to saving lives.” said SLSA CEO, Melissa King.

    With the average yearly patrol season lasting 10 hours a day over 71 days, Can-Am vehicles will have clocked up 319,000 kilometres this year alone, of hard sand work. Sea-Doo watercraft and Evinrude outboards will have passed 51,120 hours of on water patrolling for the 2015/2016 season.

    These numbers are testament to the decision SLSA took back in 2009 to acquire BRP services with Can-Am, Sea-Doo and Evinrude E-TEC to help protect Australian beach goers.

    BRP products are currently being used across SLSA clubs around Australia and include the;

    • Can-Am Commander side-by-side with its innovative Can-Am Learning Key that limits speed for beginners and allows surf clubs to safely train the next generation of lifesavers;
    • Sea-Doo personal watercraft with on-water braking system (the first of its kind) which enhances safety and manoeuvrability making BRP products the best suited to SLSA standards;
    • Evinrude E-TEC engines with emission complied 2 stroke fuel injected outboards that use up to 50% less fuel with 30% more torque than current engines.


    “As the largest volunteer movement of its kind in Australia, there is no more worthy organisation for BRP to support than Surf Life Saving Australia. Our products offer the best performance and reliability under demanding rescue conditions and are the most sensitive to the environment in the industry”, said Vice President, General Manager for BRP Asia Pacific, Gregoire Dupont.


    BRP (TSX: DOO) is a global leader in the design, development, manufacturing, distribution and marketing of powersports vehicles and propulsion systems. Its portfolio includes Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles, Sea-Doo watercraft, Can-Am all-terrain and side-by-side vehicles, Can-Am Spyder roadsters, Evinrude and Rotax marine propulsion systems as well as Rotax engines for karts, motorcycles and recreational aircraft. BRP supports its line of products with a dedicated parts, accessories and clothing business. With annual sales of over CA$3 billion from 105 countries, the Company employs approximately 7,100 people worldwide.

  • PWC Owners Night

    The team here at JSW Powersports would like to thank everyone who attended our PWC Owners night, especially the industry professionals who made it all happen!  The night was a huge success thanks to our guest speakers and the feedback we have had from the attendees has been fantastic.  The night started with some wise words from Senior Constable Adam Howe from the Queensland Water Police resulting in an in-depth Q & A between him and the attendees.  This was a great way to start the night, covering many topics people have been misinformed on, or have been a grey area in the past.   One main topic was the question of PWC riding at night, is it legal and if so what are the rules?

    Thankfully Adam set the record straight informing the group that it is perfectly legal as long as you are equipped with the correct navigation lights.  To make it clear, you must have both a red - port (left) and green - starboard (right) light at the helm of your PWC as well as a white stern light elevated 1 metre above these in order to meet night riding requirements.   When anchored you must show your all-round white light.  Adam also made us aware of an app called 'Emergency +' .  'Emergency +' is a national app developed by Australia's emergency services and their Government and industry partners, helping people to call the right number at the right time, anywhere in Australia. The app uses a mobile phone's GPS functionality so callers can provide emergency call-takers with their location information as determined by their smart phone. ‘Emergency+’ also includes SES and Police Assistance Line numbers as options, so non-emergency calls are made to the most appropriate number.


    Following Adam we heard from Corey from Club Marine.  JSW Powersports are a Platinum partner with Club Marine providing our customers with both insurance and extension of warranty.  Corey discussed the importance of keeping your PWC stored safely due to the unfortunate high levels of PWC theft.  He also touched on the significance of maintaining the manufacturers service schedule, as well as the use of genuine parts to ensure insurance and warranty obligations are met. 

    We were then lucky enough to hear from Shane Riley and Luke Stratton.  Shane is from Broadwater Boat and Jet Ski Licencing and has been in the industry for nearly 20 years.  He gave advise on off shore safety equipment and what is required for a PWC.  If you are planning on travelling beyond smooth and partially smooth waters you are required to carry a minimum of an EPIRB (406 MHz), Safety V-Sheet and Flares and you must be wearing a PFD2 (L50) life vest.  For all information on what safety equipment you need and where, refer to page 25 of the BoatSafe workbook.  We also had Luke Stratton from Gold Coast Boat and Jet Ski Licensing advise us that you must remember, different rules apply in different states so make sure you do your research when on the water elsewhere in Australia.  


    Shane also advised us to use an app called Navionics.  A favourite among cruisers, sailors, fishermen and divers it has the same detailed charts as on the best GPS plotters.  It includes features such as dock-to-dock Autorouting, a unique breakthrough in boating navigation which quickly creates detailed routes even through narrow waterways and channels, based on chart data and navigation aids. It also shows information on points of interest near the destination such as the harbour master, marinas and moorings, fuel stations, restaurants and bars, shops, taxis, launch services and more.

    Following Shane, our very own Anthony Antees and Marshall Lewis went back to basics with the features and benefits of a Sea-Doo.  They touched on riding techniques, flushing and storing, towing and how to use the features to get the most out of your Sea-Doo.  They spoke about how to increase comfort and speed whilst riding and discussed control options and fuel consumption.  Again, this resulted in an in-depth Q & A between all speakers discussing various topics related to all things PWC.  This was a great opportunity for everyone in attendance to interact with our industry professionals and have the chance to clear up any unanswered questions.


    To finish off the evening we asked Simon Kendrick from BRP to educate our guests on the development of Sea-Doo products over the years.  Simon has worked with Sea-Doo for many years and has witnessed the evolution of the Sea-Doo brand.  He introduced the new 300hp engine and provides insight as to how the product has been developed and how far they have come.  The latest 300hp is positioned as the fastest recreational PWC on the market, attaining speeds of over 120km/h.  Fortunately, Sea-Doo intelligent brake and reverse mean the 300hp beast can stop 33m shorter at 80kmph than a PWC without brakes.  As Simon said, 'BRP has a commitment to continuous research, development and product evolution'.

    Our PWC Owners night was a huge success with everyone involved learning something new about being a PWC owner.  This taught us that often the rules and regulations can be misinterpreted or misunderstood and therefore you need to make sure you do your research before heading out on the water.  Ultimately we have learnt that whilst it is important to have fun - safety is the key ingredient to PWC riding!

    When BRP engineered the Can-am Defender they pulled out all the stops. They made it tough, capable and clever to excel at everything you demand of it. You'll feel the difference as soon as you sit inside the intelligently conceived cockpit and power up the proven Rotax engine. Pull away and feel the confidence that the sure-footedness of all-terrain 4WD brings. The Defender is available in four different versions: standard, DPS, XT and XT Cab. All will be powered by BRP-developed Rotax V-Twin engines; the standard, DPS and XT available in HD8 (50 horsepower) or HD10 (72 horsepower) and the XT Cab coming only with the HD10 mill.




    Leveraging years of experience in powersports and small aircraft engine development, Can-Am introduces the new Rotax HD8 and HD10 V-Twin engine options. They took their well recognised Rotax V-Twin engine and recalibrated it for heavy-duty performance. Whether you're work-focused or trail riding, the 50-hp HD8 and 72-hp HD10 engines have proven power you can rely on.

    The Defender is particularly rife with desifn elements aimed at enticing customers looking for a solid, all-around utility side by side. Regardless of engine size, each Defender comes with a PRO-TORQ transmission system which provides significantly more torque earlier in the rev range in comparison to its competition. The PRO-TORQ transmission combines technologies like Quick Response System (QRS) providing precise engagement, larger CVT ratios with a work-specific low gear ensuring optimal torque delivery, optimized ventilation for smoother power delivery, Electronic Belt Production for enhanced durability, and integrated engine braking for smooth and predictable deceleration.


    The drivetrain on all but the standard HD8 model features a True 4 traction mode system, with choices between 2×4 open or locked rear differential and 4×4 open or locked rear differential. The standard HD8 has only selectable 2WD or 4WD options. All iterations of the Defender feature Visco-Lok QE auto-locking front differential. There’s also an Electronic Hill Descent Control system equipped on all models.

    Suspension throughout the range is double A-arm with gas charged shocks out front featuring 10 inches of travel and a Torsional Trailing A-arm set-up out back with 10 inches of travel offered by the gas charged shocks. Braking is handled by dual 220mm ventilated discs at the front and rear, pinched by twin-piston calipers fore and single-piston calipers aft.

    Other features shared by all Defender models include 40 litre fuel capacity, ROPS approved cage, 2000 pound towing capacity and 1000 pound cargo box capacity. Each model comes with Maxxis tires, the standard and DPS coming with 12-inch wheels (steel on the standard, cast aluminum on the DPS) and M923 model rubber while the XT and XT Cab feature 14-inch cast aluminum wheels and Maxxis Bighorn tires. All models come with a two year warranty.


    The Can-Am Defender has a rugged outer appearance that opens up into a world of great innovation for the multi-use consumer. Starting with the simple task of getting in and out of the vehicle, Can-Am felt it was important to taper the forward corner egress of the seating in a way that wouldn’t drag on your legs while entering the cab and would also help prevent premature wear on the seat covering. This attention to detail runs deep in the cab of this rig.


    Three people can sit on the Defender's 40/20/40 bench-type seat. Can-Am engineers took the traditional glove box and turned it into a very handy removable and water-resistant toolbox. Standing on the passenger side of the Defender you simply lift the handle and it pops right out. Under the passenger side seat there is yet another removable waterproof box. With the center seat and passenger seat lifted into their upright positions there is room for the trusty hunting dog or bags of seed that you might want to stay dry during transport.

    Available now at JSW Powersports.  For further information or if you would like to speak with one of our Can-am experts call us on 07 5529 2616.

  • Hear and Say Charity Ride

    October 19, 2015

    We would like to thank everyone who participated in our Hear and Say Charity Ride.  The day was a huge success with us all raising a whopping $3,821.15 all to be donated to the Hear and Say organisation.  The day started out a little cloudy so we were unsure how the weather would be on arrival to Peel Island.  Luckily the clouds disappeared and the sun shone, making it a glorious day for such a long ride.  Many of the riders that joined did so at The Spit Boat Ramp along with the JSW Team.  Here Anthony Antees, our most experienced rider, briefed the group on the route to Peel Island making sure everyone knew to look out for each other and watch their speed considering the number of riders in the water.






    Due to the length of the ride many joined us along the way increasing the number of PWC significantly.  In all the ride took approximately 1hr 10 minutes, with some slower paced riders arriving a little later with our safety boat.  Approximately 100 PWC joined us on the beach at Peel Island, which was a fantastic turn out.  On arrival riders could purchase raffle tickets to enter the draw to win some amazing prizes including a Sirocco inflatable boat worth over $1000!  The sausage sizzle went down a treat with all the hungry riders and everyone seemed to lap up the amazing views from the beautiful Horseshoe Bay.






    Congratulations to all that won prizes in the raffle and thank you to the very eager helpers who chose the winning tickets.  We hope that all involved enjoyed the day, the JSW team had an absolute ball!  We feel extremely humbled that so many people supported us to raise an astonishing $3,821.15 for such a great cause, thank you for your donations and for joining us on the ride.  Finally, thank you to all the JSW staff members for giving your valuable time to make such an amazing day happen!





    Published 30th September -
    Hear and Say is one of the leading paediatric Auditory-Verbal and Implantable Technologies (including cochlear implants) organisations in the world, teaching children who are deaf to hear, listen and speak since 1992. This year more than 1,500 children and young adults affected by hearing loss will benefit from our programs and services. It costs Hear and Say more than $10,000 each year for up to six years to teach one profoundly deaf child to learn to listen and speak. This means we must rely on our fundraising events and activities, and the generous support of our donors and partners.


    Hearing is the sense by which sound is perceived. Our brains differentiate between sounds by recognising differences in volume (intensity) and pitch (frequency). As we develop from infanthood, we are constantly listening to sounds and speech around us. As our brains begin to attach meaning to sound we learn to recognise sounds and voices and then learn to understand the meaning of words and speech. After much listening, we begin to learn to speak. In this way, hearing is necessary for the normal development of spoken language which is an essential part of communication. How do we hear? In order to hear normally, a complete and clear signal must be transmitted to the brain from the external environment via the outer ear, middle ear, inner ear and hearing nerve. Sound is gathered by the outer ear and sent down the ear canal to the eardrum. The sound causes the eardrum to vibrate which sets the three tiny bones in the middle ear into motion. The motion of the bones causes the fluid in the inner ear to move. The movement of the inner ear fluid causes the hair cells in the cochlea to bend. The hair cells proceed to change the movement into electrical pulses. These electrical impulses are transmitted to the hearing (auditory) nerve and up to the brain, where they are interpreted as sound.

    JSW Powersports are inviting you to join us to raise money for Hear and Say. We will be riding to the beautiful Peel Island on October 18th and we want as many people to join us as possible! To register, donate and find out more information visit our Ride Day Registration Page.

        As well as the Ride Day the JSW team will also be participating in Loud Shirt Day. Loud Shirt Day is a positive fundraising campaign – Friday 16 October 2015. It’s an excuse to wear your brightest clothes (love ‘em, hate ‘em, whatever) and raise money to help give the gift of sound and speech to deaf children. Whether you fancy stripes, florals, polka dots or paisley, as long as your clothes have colour and pizzazz, it will be perfect for Loud Shirt Day. If you want to help us to support this fantastic charity... and see our team dressed in the most ridiculous shirts please visit our Hear and Say fund raising page and make a donation.

  • JSW Powersports Birthday Party!

    October 13, 2015

    What a day we had celebrating our 4th Birthday as JSW Powersports! We are honoured that so many of you joined us to celebrate on Saturday and hope that you all enjoyed the day. In true JSW style drinks were flowing, music was pumping and Captain Jack Sparrow was here to entertain all. Starting from 12 noon we had DJ Truksta on the decks, the JSW Burger Bar in action and the very popular Race Car Simulators in full swing. Racing the Bathurst 1000 track competing for the prize of a Nilox F-60 Videocamera... the competition was fierce!


    The time finally came that everyone had been waiting for, the draw of the finalists to win the Sea-Doo Spark.  The entries had been collected through the competition period and placed into a large glass bowl.  With the assistance of some keen little helpers finally we had our 5 finalists ready to determine their fate.  We asked each finalist to pick a Spark lanyard, with only one of them programmed to start the engine.  As the first lanyard clipped onto the Spark you could hear a pin drop..... the crowd silent in anticipation.  It was not meant to be.  The next two lanyards also failed to start the Spark leaving the last two finalists head to head.  It was the fourth try that ignited the engine, the winner Tom Jenkins was absolutely delighted.  Although there was only one winner, our 4 runners up walked away with a Sea-Doo Aqua Lounge to enjoy.  Not quite a Spark but still, not a bad consolation prize!


    Overall the day was a huge success and our team enjoyed every minute of it.  Again we would like to thank everyone who came, we have never seen our showroom so full of people!  We would like to thank everyone who helped us on the day including DJ Truksta, Captain Jack Sparrow, Corrine from Colourful Creationz, The Fun Team, The Race Centre and Jaxon Evans for letting us have his Porsche GT3 on display.  Finally, congratulations again to Tom Jenkins for your big win.  We hope you enjoy your summer out on the water!

    September 23, 2015

    It is the moment that all Sea-Doo lovers have been waiting for.  The launch of the Rotax 1630ACE engine!  Our team flew over to the US last week to witness the unveiling of the 2016 Sea-Doo range and what a glorious unveiling it was!  There are a number of exciting new aspects of the Sea-Doo 2016 line up to talk about but lets face it... the new 300hp Rotax 1630 ACE is the hot topic on everyone's lips!

    The new Rotax 1630 ACE engine is bigger, more efficient and delivers more power with a boosted 300 hp, becoming the most powerful engine ever produced by Rotax. The Rotax 1630 ACE has a longer stroke compared to the Rotax 1503 and features a new supercharger with a faster spinning 32-blade wheel producing 30% more intake boost. Adding to the power producing efficiency is a re-engineered cooling system that is improved by 33% in part from an additional heat exchanger and more efficient engine oil cooler. New ignition curves have been developed to efficiently match the increased air boost with the output of the larger fuel injectors leading to a 15% increase in horsepower and the industry’s best power-to-weight ratio in the 2016 RXP-X 300 model.


    This new engine also features a new plasma coating technology for aluminum-block engines developed by a Rotax team in Gunskirchen, Austria. The plasma coating technology is a thermal spraying process that deposits a protective coating on engine cylinder liners to create a metallic layer that provides a hard and durable surface to withstand piston friction forces. It improves surface durability, while keeping the engine lighter and more compact with better heat transfer and superior performance, and reduced use of chemicals.

    The race-proven Ergolock seat is now available on all RXT models for 2016 and allows riders to hold onto the watercraft better by using their stronger leg muscles to squeeze the narrower seat, thus improving control and reducing upper body fatigue. The 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 receives the complete Ergolock system that includes the narrow Ergolock seat, the Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) handlebar and the angled footwell wedges for more rider comfort and control.


    All 2016 Sea-Doo performance models will be equipped with the second-generation iBR that improves on the industry’s first, intuitive braking system with a more responsive activation. The new iBR reduces the stopping distance by close to 48.75m  sooner than deceleration without braking. The Sea-Doo iBR system is the first and only braking system recognized by the USCG since 2009 for contributing to recreational boating safety and is now even better with a stronger gear drive motor and larger, reengineered brake gate. The iBR system adds to the rider centric design approach providing maximum control in all conditions. The 2016 Sea-Doo performance models also include race-inspired features such as high-performance Variable Trim System (VTS), increased storage capacity on RXT models, new handlebar grips with palm rest and race-inspired coloration and graphics.


    2016 SEA-DOO RXT-X 300
    The combination of the increased power and efficiency of the new ROTAX 1630 ACE engine with the advanced ergonomics of the Ergolock seat deliver a confidence inspiring ride allowing you to push your limits even further on the 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300. The 300-hp Rotax 1630 ACE engine delivers more torque providing more mid-range power to help maintain momentum when riding through heavy chop where the jet pump is continually reengaging the water. The new power package provides greater throttle response in all conditions and is the most powerful engine ever offered in a Sea-Doo watercraft.


    The RXT-X 300 model also benefits from the learning’s of the recent Sea-Doo closed course racing success as the race-proven Sea-Doo Ergolock system of the RXP-X has been adapted to this model. The system allows the rider to connect with the watercraft better and use his entire body to hold on rather than only the upper-body, thus improving confidence and reducing upper body fatigue. The narrower, body-molded seat, Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) handlebar and angled footwell wedges, have proven to benefit in aggressive cornering and are equally beneficial in connecting the watercraft in choppy, open-water, straight-line riding. The added ability for the rider to feel better connected to the RXT-X 300 delivers better control and less fatigue allowing the rider to utilize the available power more efficiently.


    The addition of the Ergolock seat also aided in a redesign that now offers added wet storage under Sea-Doo’s exclusive removable watertight storage bin for over three times more storage capacity than the previous generation with 162 liters of total storage and a larger glove box. The technical flowing edges of the RXT-X model is complimented by the functionality of the stable and predictable S3 hull with adjustable rear sponsons. The RXT-X 300 watercraft is equipped with race specific features including, digital infocenter with integrated lap timer and boost indicator and high-performance Variable Trim System (VTS). It also features the second-generation iBR adding to the level of rider control with the most intuitive operation and Intelligent Throttle Control (iTC) systems with Touring, Sport and ECO modes. The 2016 Sea-Doo RXT-X 300 model is available in muscle colors of Lava Red and the modern Monolith Black Satin or race inspired White and Dayglow Yellow.

    2016 SEA-DOO RXP-X 300
    The Sea-Doo RXP-X watercraft is the most decorated performance model in the last five years and is now powered by the new 300-horsepower Rotax 1630 ACE engine offering the industry’s best power-to-weight ratio performance. This new, stronger, bigger and more efficient engine takes the RXP-X 300 model to the next level as the industry’s undisputed king of performance fun. The Rotax 1630 ACE power package provides greater mid-range power for better cornering speed and produces over 1G during acceleration from a stop.


    The T3 hull design allows the RXP-X 300 model to aggressively lean into corners and penetrate chop better than any of its two-seater counterparts. T3 stands for “tight-turning t-hull” and uses an advanced, dual running surface hull design with a unique combination of soft and hard chines, adjustable rear sponsons and performance trim tabs. The T3 hull combined with the Ergolock system allows the rider to lean further into corners, using more of the available power, with greater confidence and less effort to turn tighter and faster.MY16_RXP-X-300_Lava-Red-Monolith-Black-Satin_side

    The Sea-Doo RXP-X 300 also receives the new handlebar grips with palm rest and intuitive second-generation iBR enhancing the level of rider control to complete the most intuitively controlled two-seater in the high-performance segment. The Sea-Doo RXP-X model has set the standard for precise handling and in 2016 is available in Lava Red and the modern Monolith Black Satin coloration or race inspired White and Dayglow Yellow.

  • Winter whale watching

    June 16, 2015

    What better reason to brave the cooler waters this winter than go whale watching.  The Gold Coast is renowned as the premier whale watching destination in South East Queensland with whales generally coming within a kilometre or two of the beach. Because of its geographical location the Gold Coast has whales passing through all season and it is one of the rare points on the East Coast of Australia where from the middle of August whale traffic heads in both directions past the Coast.  One of the most famous whales a person can spot during the whale migration season is Migaloo, the all-white humpback whale.

    Remember, if you are planning on whale watching off shore you need to ensure you have the required safety equipment for your boat or PWC.  Read our blog on PWC safety  to find out what you need for your trip.  You also need to make sure you know rules and regulations out on the water when trying to get a peek of these amazing mammals. For a whale, the no approach zone surrounds the animal for 100 metres and extends 300 metres in front of and behind the animal. You need to remember that a PWC is a 'prohibited vessel' therefore needs to stick to the 300 metre rule at all times. Those of us that live within the whale migration region are extremely lucky to be able to experience the sight of the largest living things on earth. It is important to respect the rules and give them the space they need to behave naturally.


    Remember - keep a safe distance and do not disturb!


    What is the basic rule when near whales and dolphins? Remain quiet and do not try to feed or touch them.

    • Be alert and watch for whales and dolphins at all times.
    • When in a vessel, do not approach closer than 100m to any whale or 50m to any dolphin.
    • The caution zone for vessels is the area within 300m of a whale and 150m of a dolphin. No more than three vessels are allowed within the caution zone at any one time and vessels should operate at no wake speeds within this zone.
    • Approach whales and dolphins from parallel to and slightly to the rear - not from directly behind or head-on.
    • When leaving whales or dolphins, move off at a slow (no wake) speed to the outer limit of the caution zone (300m) from the closest animal before gradually increasing speed.
    • Keep a lookout and avoid disturbance to mother whales or dolphins and their calves. Mother and calf will be close together and the calves are sometimes difficult to see.
    • If there is a sudden change in whale or dolphin behaviour, move away immediately at a slow steady pace.
    • Whales and dolphins sometimes form social groupings and may approach your vessel - if this happens place the engine in neutral and let the animal(s) come to you; or slow down and continue on course; or steer a straight course away from them.
    • Do not get into the water if you see a whale or dolphin. If you're already in the water do not disturb, chase or block the path of a whale or dolphin and if possible, return to your vessel or the shore.


    Whale Migration


    As the cold weather grows in southern waters, these warm-blooded animals find the region uncomfortable therefore migrate for the following reasons; food becomes very scarce since the fish that the whales feed on also migrate, leading to certain hunger and probable death. The warm northern waters provide the perfect breeding ground for whales and this guarantees their survival since May to September is the breeding season. Lastly, the cold waters are potentially fatal for their calves which are usually born in the warmer waters in the second half of the year.

    Most of these whales are of the humpback species and usually hurry north as early as may when the waters of Australia’s east coast are much more pleasant. They are visible from Sydney harbor where a robust whale watching culture prevails at this time of the year. Humpback adults range in length from 12–16 meters and weigh about 80,000 pounds. Their name derives from their very long pectoral fins and knobby head that make them look like they have a hump.

    Also available in the whale horde that heads north are the southern right whales that use the same route to escape the winter. These latter tend to be more comfortable around people and boats despite their low numbers in the east coast of Australia. This journey often leads the whales towards the Great Barrier Reef region where they stay throughout the winter into mid-spring (June to October).

    The northern whale migration of east coast Australia often has the water giants moving farther offshore then their southern return. This makes whale spotting from land or close to the shore much easier when they swim south on their return trip. For those who want to spot them during the northern march, remember to stick to the rules of the water ensuring not to get too close!

    The Gold Coast is becoming known as the one of the premier whale watching locations in Australia with whales generally coming within a kilometre or two of the beach off the shore, and because of its geographical location, the Gold Coast has whales passing through all season and it is one of the rare points on the East Coast where, from the middle of August, whale traffic heads in both directions.

    We would love for you to share your experiences with these amazing mammals.  If you manage to get a glimpse this winter send us your pictures to [email protected]

  • PWC Safety

    May 16, 2015

    We are often asked questions about what safety equipment is required when out on the water.  Cruising, wave jumping, surf-riding and skiing are just a few fun ways to enjoy your personal watercraft (PWC). Whatever the activity you choose, the smart way to enjoy your sport is safely. Whether you own or just borrow a PWC, you must know your responsibilities.

    Owners and operators have a general safety obligation to make sure their PWC is in good condition, used safely and has the correct safety equipment. To operate a PWC you must:

    When towing a skier the operator must be licensed and there must be an observer on board who is more than 12 years old and is competent to watch the skier at all times.

    A supervised unlicensed driver is not allowed to carry passengers—other than the supervising licence holder. The supervising licence holder must wear the kill switch safety lanyard while the PWC is being driven by the unlicensed driver.

    All PWCs must be registered.  As well as registration symbols, you must have a Ride Smart sticker and Capacity label attached to the PWC and visible to the operator at all times.

    The safety equipment required for your PWC depends on where you are riding.


    *Does not apply to a PWC that is operating in an approved aquatic event or within 0.5nm from land.

    Only applies when more than 2nm from land or partially smooth waters.

    PWCs travelling at night, or at times of reduced visibility, must show navigation lights (side lights and an all-round white light which is visible from 360 degrees).

    Visit our online store to stock up on the safety equipment you might need -


    PWC Rules on the water


    If you're travelling at more than 10 knots you must keep a distance of 30m from other moving boats, unless you're involved in an approved aquatic event or where doing so would endanger you or another person.

    Consider the density of waterway traffic in the area to determine a safe speed. You must stay 60m away from, or reduce your speed to 6 knots if within 60m of:

    • people in the water
    • anchored or moored boats, structures, boat ramps, jetties or pontoons
    • the shore
    • the boundary of a bathing reserve.

    Exceptions apply to the 60m from shore rule if:

    1. the waterway is less than 120m wide, and:

    o    you operate the PWC as close as practical to a straight line to transit the area

    o    you stay as close as possible to the centre of the waterway or a marked channel

    1. the PWC is being used in waterskiing or towing.

    In coastal waters, freestyling or wave jumping is restricted to:

    • beyond 200m of the shore if homes are within 100m of the shoreline, and are in the vicinity of the waters where the PWC is operating. Coastal waters do not include dams and inland waters.

  • Fiik Life!

    March 25, 2015

    Sometimes you come across a product that makes you sit back and go "FiiK". The company is called FiiK "Future Is In Knowledge", a nod to their ongoing design refinement which began over 10 years ago with a small two stroke motor strapped to a plank of wood. The product has evolved into a skateboard with a magnetic motor, a digital wireless throttle control system, ABS braking system and a ton of urban chic.




    There are a number of different Fiik boards to cater for different types of riders and terrain. The most popular board is the retro styled, red striped "Street Surfer" and its easy to see why. This board produces high speeds on the black top with a maximum speed of 37 km/h (23 mph). It has aluminium rimmed, off road pneumatic tires with plenty of grip allowing you to take the board places a traditional skateboard can only dream about, such as tearing up grassy embankments and surfing the hard packed sand at the beach.

    The board can also be equipped with super heavy duty tires – larger tires with grippy oversized tread to tackle dry dirt tracks and mulchy off road terrain. The board has an optional lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery giving you a range of around 30 km (22 miles) or 1.5 hours of runtime. A short wheelbase allows tighter turns, while the hardwood deck is concave for better traction while on board.

    FiiK manufacture a range of other boards with a variety of deck shapes and more traditional poly-urethane wheels geared towards the street and skatepark. These boards have smaller and lighter battery packs with a short wheelbase for manoeuvrability. Others have a long wheelbase giving a surfing or snowboarding sensation with a deeper concave deck to give greater control while carving up the road. There is also a range for younger children, light enough to carry on public transport and to use as a regular skateboard if the battery runs flat.



    The electric skateboards are all controlled by a handgun like device using digital wireless technology. There are 3 speed settings to allow for all skill levels, and the ability to limit the top speed for novice riders. Incorporating a stepless throttle control, the rider pulls the trigger towards them to start moving and away from them to slow down and stop. All the FiiK boards have an ABS braking system to allow the rider to slow down without the wheels locking and potentially throwing the rider off.



    The FiiK electric skateboards have a sealed lead acid battery as standard that can be upgraded to a more expensive lithium iron phosphate pack. Sealed lead acid batteries are a cost effective solution that can deliver great acceleration and torque when fully charged but they do have limitations compared to LiFePO4. There are large differences in weight and size – in regards to the FiiK lithium batteries, 3.8 kg (8.4 lb) compared to 13 kg (28.6 lb) and the lithium batteries are over four times smaller.

    Other benefits are an extended run time, more torque, faster acceleration and a longer lifespan – 2,000 recharges compared to 500 with no charge memory problems. There is a quick charger in development that promises to drop the charging time from flat currently at 5 to 6 hours down to under 2 hours.

  • 2015 Performance

    March 11, 2015

    From power to ergonomics and style, Sea-Doo has set the standard for performance watercraft. The Sea-Doo brand was the first to produce a performance watercraft when the 1991 Sea-Doo XP was launched, creating an entirely new segment in the watercraft industry. In 2015 BRP continues to lead the performance watercraft segment with three models (Australia only), making it easier to find the right model for every type of rider to deliver the exact adrenaline pumping experience they’re looking for.  Because maximum thrills on the open water come from every last ounce of capability you can squeeze from a watercraft, these are rides that redefine performance through exclusive hull designs, ergonomics and technologies, and include features that make handling intuitive, comfortable and responsive.  All this creates advantages you can use to finish ahead of the rest.  Whether its open water or navigating buoys, these watercraft let you harness superior performance. But, finding the right watercraft can lead to questions. If you’re thinking performance, keep reading as we will you help find the model that deliver the experience you’re looking for.


    Strong and powerful yet more forgiving, this watercraft is one of the easiest way to get into the musclecraft scene.  Its the best value of any performance watercraft package and it comes with a supercharged engine that offers more power and acceleration than the competition.  The GTR 215 model also gives you better handling and versatility because it can be tuned easily with aftermarket accessories.  You'll also stay dryer under moderate chop than on other models thanks to the anti-splash design in its hull.  For the performance enthusiast who wants a performance Sea-Doo model without the performance cost the Sea-Doo GTR 215 is the perfect fit. Good at everything, the GTR 215 is Sea-Doo’s entry-level “musclecraft,” and when it accelerates to 30 mph in just 2.3 seconds, riders agree its deserving of performance circles respect. Based on the GTI hull, this machine features fun, nimble and predictable handling. The 3-seater offers more lateral stability, something that is appreciated when you’ve got a couple of passengers behind you. And if you’re cruising along in Touring mode, they’ll still feel the power, but with less of a punch. Pull the throttle in Sport mode, and the supercharged Rotax 4-TEC marine engine delivers a mean response with its superior power to weight ratio. The GTR 215 comes with some of Sea-Doo’s best innovations including the iTC and iBR system and includes an integrated infocentre, VTS, and 30.5 gallons (116 litres) of storage capacity.




    Large bodies of water won't know what hit them with the RXT-X 260.  These  muscular performance watercraft deliver size, speed, strength and stability in rougher conditions.  The stepped S3 Hull means you'll stay glued to the water and it's calibrated for pure performance riding.  Power your way through even the roughest conditions with superior features like Adjustable Rear Sponsons that improve lateral stability, and a High-Output Engine that gives you the rush you crave.  The RXT-X 260 thrusts its riders from point A to point B accelerating to 50mph in less than 3 seconds. This non-suspended model integrates the Shull with rear sponsons and to carves corners better than any competitive 3 seat watercraft. By adjusting the VTS and the A.E.S. steering, any rider can customize their preferences for enhanced performance. The RXT-X also features the digital info center, iBR, and iTC along with ECO mode and quick-set Sport/Touring modes.

    The riders who travels large lakes or long rivers and accepts the friendly wager to see who can get to the other side first is the rider who should look at the RXT-X 260. The RXT-X 260 is a perfect combination of race/touring and is equipped with race inspired features including the special X-TEAM seat design that is perfect for those high RPM runs with passengers. If you are in need of a performance machine that has the race look and feel and you wan tot do it with a passenger, the Sea-Doo RXT-X 260 should be at the top of your list.



    The RXP-X 260 pushes the limits of what's possible in race riding through agility, power, sharp handling, precise cornering and innovative design. Experience a feeling of complete control with the T³ Hull, that allows for more precise cornering, enhanced lean-in, and a more responsive ride when out for a friendly race. Its exclusive Ergolock system reduces fatigue and keeps you upper body more relaxed because you can 'lock' your legs into the narrow seat so you become one with your watercraft so it can fulfill its main purpose: giving you every possible advantage.

    Engineered for maximum riding potential, the Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 has claimed more world championships than any other runabout model over a 4-year span. The T3 hull (tight-turning t-hull) and ergonomics are ideal for closed course racers allowing the model to aggressively lean into corners and penetrate chop better than any of its two-seater rivals. The RXP-X 260 uses an unmatched advanced, dual surface hull design with a combination of soft and hard chines, dual axis adjustable rear sponsons and performance trim tabs. Riders lock into the machine with the narrow, body-molded racing seat, Adjustable Ergonomic Steering (A.E.S.) and angled footwell wedges. In the middle of a race, riders can take tighter, faster turns using more of the available power leaning further into corners.

    The Sea-Doo RXP-X 260 becomes an extension of the rider with a perfect upper and lower body connection. This watercraft is designed to be noticed on the water and off with a very technical design using a detailed flowing facet design philosophy that provides a ominous appearance demanding respect. You will find in 2015 as the RXP-X 260 is happiest when leaned over and pushing up walls of water in tight turns. If you want to unveil the Pro rider in you every weekend the RXP-X 260 is your Sea-Doo.

  • What we love about the ZUP!

    March 10, 2015

    ZUP. is a fresh easy way to have fun with all of your family & friends out on the water. What do we love about this board?  You can lay, kneel, stand, surf, rest, ride backwards, be creative! With this buoyant, durable, moulded board, everyone getZUP! What's more you can pull it behind any boat or PWC! The one of a kind Zup board has hit Australia by storm, designed for all riders from your  young first timers up to old age pensioner adrenaline junkies.  As they say in their marketing campaign - If nobody is left out, then everyone is invited!



    At first glance, the ZUP resembles a kneeboard…on steroids. It’s made from rotomolded plastic and features a kneeboard’s familiar oval shape and soft EVA top pad. But rather than a knee strap, the ZUP features dual foot straps. Their thick, cushiony surface works as an elbow rest when starting out laying on your stomach, a kneepad when the board is ridden like a kneeboard, and skier-like foot straps when a rider progresses to the standing position. Perhaps the board’s coolest feature, however, is the integrated tow-handle hook at the bow. Combined with moulded-in side handles, it lets riders eliminate one of the most challenging elements for beginners — holding on to the towrope — by hooking the tow handle to the board and removing nearly all that stress from the upper body.


    Once underway, riders can leave the handle tethered, or unhook and hang on in traditional skiing style. Locking in the tow handle, and using the side grab handles, greatly simplifies pulling yourself up to your knees. Leaving that towrope tethered also makes it far easier to get to your feet.   At every step of the way the board’s buoyant design and 27” width offers great stability.  At a price point of AU$579 it is the perfect boat or PWC accessory suitable for all the family combining kneeboarding, wakeboarding and water-skiing.

    That pretty much, sums up what we love about the ZUP. Conceivably almost anyone can find a way to have fun on it…and nobody is left on the sidelines.  Here is a short film showing you just how versatile the ZUP board is and how easy it is to ride.


    If you think the ZUP is for you -  visit us in store or online.   The specially designed handle and tow rope is also a great feature to add to your purchase ensuring you can take full advantage of the tow hook allowing you to be towed hands free!

    Perth, Western Australia, January 31-February 1, 2015
    Australia’s most prestigious PWC racing series, the Yamaha Australian Jetcross Championships, kicked off on the weekend at the Burswood Water Sports Complex in Perth, Western Australia. Sea-Doo riders James Masterton and Anthony Antees make the epic journey across Australia from East to West to contest the Pro-Am Open Runabout Class, one of the most highly competitive classes on the tour. After being completely let down by their transport company, Antees and fellow JSW Powersports rider Jeff McNiven were forced to borrow stock standard Sea-Doo watercraft’s from fellow competitor Corey Styles and local Perth dealership Sea-Doo Sport and Leisure tocompete in round 1 on Saturday. It turned out however that the standard Sea-Doo RXP-X turned a few heads, carrying Antees to a comfortable 3rd place and 48 series points, amongst a field of heavily modified PWC’s, including fellow Sea-Doo rider Masterton who took out the top podium spot and the associated 60 series points. Antees was heard to comment “we just stuck fuel in it and rode it’s legs off. I assume it had an air filter on it, did anyone check”? With their race Sea-Doo PWC’s hitting the water just 5 minutes before the start of race 1 on Sunday morning (round 2 of the series) the JWS Powersports boys had no time to test and tune after the long journey across the country. It was fuel up and hit the gas as the flag dropped, with Antees blitzing the field of Australia’s best, taking a clean sweep of 3 for 3. Antees won the round with a perfect 60 series points, while Masterton, also having a great run on his Sea-Doo RXP-X, took out not only second place and 53 series points, but also a series lead of 5 points over fellow Sea-Doo pilot Antees. The 2015 Yamaha Australian Jetcross Championships now head East for rounds 3 and 4, to be held at Redcliffe in Queensland on February 21-22. Stay tuned for more Sea-Doo domination to follow.

  • JSW Christmas Ride Day

    December 9, 2014

    It was touch and go as to whether or not we would be able to go ahead with our ride day plans.  In the lead up to the day South East Queensland experienced heavy rainfall and storms.. not ideal weather for a round trip of South Stradbroke Island on a PWC!  Luckily for us by Sunday morning most of the rain had cleared leaving us with grey and dreary but almost dry weather conditions.  The arrival of 150 riders showed that rain or shine.. we were going to complete this ride!



    Due to the bad weather and windy conditions we split the ride into two groups taking the beginners up inside the Broadwater to meet the off shore group  just inside Jumpinpin.  The beginners left first, ensuring there was little chop and that the ride was as smooth as possible.  One thing we couldn't control was a huge rain cloud we hit half way.  Despite the bad visibility and  wet conditions the group arrived at Jumpinpin just in time to see the other riders come through the bar, and the sun shone!!

    Images-2As we merged the two groups it became clear that the rain cloud had traveled over South Stradbroke Island and hit the off shore group too.. there wasn't a dry rider in sight.  The energy that exhumed the group of riders created an awesome atmosphere and many stayed at the pin to take the opportunity to test ride some of the Sea-Doo models we had out on the water.   After some sun baking to dry off we ventured to Tipplers Cafe for a hot drink, some grub and to top it off a Christmas raffle of Sea-Doo goodies.


    JSW Powersports would like to thank everyone who joined us, our team really enjoyed the day.... despite the unpredictable weather!  If any of you have any pictures you would like to share please do so by emailing them to [email protected]

    Thank you Deavon Clayton for the below pics from Sunday!!

  • BRP Support Surf Life Saving Australia

    October 7, 2014

    BRP has continued to further cement its support and partnership with Surf Life Saving (SLS). In a collaborative effort to improve emergency response capability at notorious 'Black Spot' locations on Australia's coastline, BRP has recently provided SLS with state-of-the-art Sea-Doo personal watercraft, Can-Am off road vehicles and Evinrude outboard engines.  The BRP Powercraft Equipment Grant, part of Surf Life Saving Australia’s national partnership with Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), has delivered $1.26 million worth of essential lifesaving equipment to over 160 Surf Life Saving clubs and services around Australia since its beginning in 2009, meaning more surf lifesavers and lifeguards* are rescue-ready to save lives on Australia’s coastline.


    'Black Spots' are locations SLS has specifically identified with having a high concentration of coastal incidents and a high risk of ongoing reoccurrence. SLS has targeted the most treacherous locations, and part of the strategy to help reduce drownings at coastal danger spots is to ensure lifeguards at these locations have the latest technology in rescue craft at their disposal.  In 2014 alone, the subsidy based grant which was launched in January, has allocated $360,000 worth of powercraft equipment including the Can-Am Commander 800 all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and the Sea-Doo GTI 155 rescue water craft (RWC). Surf Life Saving is Australia’s major water safety, drowning prevention and rescue authority. It is also one of the largest volunteer movement of its kind in Australia, and a not-for-profit entity that exists only through community donations, government funding, fundraising and corporate sponsorship from companies such as BRP.

    Surf Life Saving Australia Coastal Safety Manager Anthony Bradstreet said the grant has allowed clubs and services to better safeguard the public.  “All-terrain vehicles and jet skis are powerful lifesaving tools. They enable surf lifesavers and lifeguards to move around the beach and water quickly. This means patrolling and rescues can be performed with greater efficiency and there’s better chances of saving lives on the coast.  It’s important to remember that Surf Life Saving is a charity and relies on the community to save lives. BRP assists the SLS movement on a grassroots level. They understand our core business of saving lives and help us in our delivery of this emergency response community service at an operational level,” he said.


    In reference to the SLS and BRP partnership, Kym Pardey (Marketing Manager, BRP Australia) explains the reasoning behind BRP's support of SLS; "There is fantastic alignment with our brands including Sea-Doo and Evinrude with SLS's rescue equipment needs. We can see no better way in which our company can support the community than by providing SLS lifesavers and lifeguards with products that will help save lives on Australian beaches". Pardey further commented, "The Page partnership also enables us to showcase how our products offer fantastic performance yet are sensitive to the environment; for example our Sea-Doo PWC's are exceptionally quiet, provide industry leading fuel eficiency, and offer innovative technology such as our unique on-water braking system that delivers real safety benefits. More than just a great rescue craft, Sea-Doo PWC's offer families the freedom to have a
    fun and safe time on our amazing waterways".

    Vice President and Regional General Manager - BRP Asia-Pacific, Gregoire Dupont, is pleased to see that the BRP Grant plays a role in assisting Surf Life Saving.

    “BRP is proud to extend its support in our sixth year of the Grant.  We see no better way for BRP to promote its brands such as Sea-Doo and Can-Am, than by having our product in the community and assisting the many dedicated SLS members perform their important patrol duties,” said Mr Dupont.

    BRP is a national sponsor of Surf Life Saving Australia and its official powercraft partner.

    The BRP Equipment Grant was established in 2009 as part of their commitment to Surf Life Saving in assisting with the delivery of lifesaving equipment; including Can-Am ATV’s, Sea-Doo Rescue Water Craft (RWC) and Evinrude outboard motors. Beyond this, BRP provides ongoing maintenance to clubs and services around Australia.  We here at JSW Powersports are proud to work with Surf Life Saving Queensland providing them with both Sea-Doo watercraft and Can-Am Off-Road vehicles. Not only do our watercraft deliver the performance and reliability required to help save lives on Australian beaches but with our low emissions they are also helping keep Australian beaches and waterways clean.

  • RXT-X or RXP-X?

    September 25, 2014

    The Sea-Doo customer is loyal to the BRP brand but it doesn’t end there!  After the huge response we had following a social media post on our customer’s choice between the RXP-X 260 and RXT-X 260 we felt that we had to explore the subject further.  The main difference between these two performance models is the seating capacity and hull design.  The RXT-X features the S3 hull designed to be stable and predictable with great rough water penetration, comfortable for cruising and riding 2-or 3up.  The RXP-X however, features the T3 hull, a configuration Sea-Doo named T3, for tight-turning.



    RXT-X 260                                                                                              RXP-X 260


    Following the launch of the RXT-X 260 back in 2010 we saw, perhaps for the first time, the impressive manoeuvrability of the S3 hull design.  It features a deep V to cleave through chop and produce a softer ride, as well as a step to aid in top speed. Perhaps its greatest strength is its ability to satisfy in nearly all water conditions. Head offshore and you’ll appreciate the soft and stable response and big-wave ability. Find a calm spot and you’ll marvel at the high-speed turns carving an aggressively sharp corner almost as quick and confident as a full-fledged race boat.

    In comparison the RXP-X 260 is the epitome of high-performance on the water.  The most innovative design element is the one you can’t see when on the water, the T3 hull. The T3 hull stands for tight-turning and outstanding tracking through chop. The hull provides a very different handling experience that calls for a different manner for the rider to connect to the watercraft and this is why the Ergolock system was developed in unison.  This concept moves the rider forward allowing a narrower seat to be utilised, which creates a locked-in feel. This means you can confidently lean the boat into high-speed corners without fear of ejection which provides handling closer to a high performance street bike than a traditional watercraft.




        S3 Hull® (Stepped, Stable and Strong)                                                               T3 Hull™ (Tight-Turning T Hull)


    Of course, part of snapping off those precise turns has to do with horsepower.  What makes this comparison interesting is that both watercraft have the same 1494cc Rotax 4-TEC engine topped off with a supercharger and intercooler to extract an added dose of performance but deliver a very different experience.  Ultimately the level of power is the same but each watercraft has been designed to utilize this in very different ways.

    We all have our personal preferences and it often comes down to this, do you want a boys toy that you just want to turn and burn or something just as powerful and a practical all rounder   Let us know what you choose and why!

    Being out on the water is the ultimate summer activity. Designed with this in mind the Sea-Doo Spark comes with a collection of accessories allowing you to customize your personal watercraft as you need it.

    Keeping family life in mind one of our bestsellers is the front storage bin, big enough to fit your sunscreen, tow rope and much more. It has a maximum storage capacity of the bin is 7.4 gallons (28 liters) and although it is not waterproof the soft sided polyurethane made bin protects your valuables from rough water. At a cost of just $128.14 the storage bin is convenient and a great accessory option your your Sea-Doo Spark.  When using your Spark for watersports it can be rather awkward when boarding from the water without a reboarding step. The Sea-Doo step can hold up to 250lbs (113kgs) and stows upright when in motion. This convenient step features a knee friendly surface for deep water boarding. It can be easily installed and for just $149.09 this Spark accessory is a must have!


    Sea-Doo have a reputation of thinking outside the box and the Spark chill shade is a perfect example of this. Again with the family in mind, you can spend hours out on the water safely protected from the sun. The innovative design means it can be used both on the water attached to your Spark and on the beach. It can be used at speeds up to 35mph (56km/h)and also comes with 2 pouches that can be used as sand anchors for protection on the beach.


    The PWC industry has been calling for a fender especially designed to protect your watercraft. Sea-Doo have come up with the answer. Originally designed especially for the Spark the highly visible snap in fenders can be mounted in pre-molded holes front and rear on the Spark models. At $155.09 for the pair these are a must for protecting your Sea-Doo.

    The new Sea-Doo Spark makes your family’s dream of great days on the water possible right now. The Sea-Doo Spark is playful and easy-to-ride. It boasts the most fuel-efficient engine available and is light enough for many popular compact sedans to tow. Plus, with so many colour and customization options, creating the perfect watercraft for your family is now easier than ever.

  • Sea-Doo TLC

    August 15, 2014

    Show how much your Sea-Doo means to you with a bit of TLC!  To get the best from your PWC you must make sure it is well maintained and looked after.  There are some simple steps you can take to prevent unwanted issues caused by salt water.  You must flush, rinse, wash and then wipe down your watercraft after use removing any salt residue from the body of your Watercraft.

    FLUSHING - Connect your garden hose to the specified connector at the rear of the PWC with the hose TURNED OFF!  Connect the lanyard and start the PWC then with the engine running turn the hose on.  Allow the engine to idle with the water flowing through for roughly 2 minutes.  Turn the hose off allowing it to idle for a further 3-5 seconds then briefly blip the throttle 2-3 times to allow the excess water to drain from the exhaust and turn off the engine.

    After being ridden in salt water the salt residue will dry and set into the body and the engine compartment of the PWC. Once the flushing procedure is complete you may commence the washing process.

    WASHING-  Rinse the surface of the PWC with your garden hose to remove / loosen the majority of the salt residue. Using warm soapy water and a sponge thoroughly wash the entire surface of the PWC paying extra attention to any chrome or painted areas. Remove the seats and open any storage compartments as well as the bungs. Making sure the engine is cool, wash down the internals of the PWC using your garden hose on low pressure.  Using the warm soapy water and sponge thoroughly wash the internals of the engine bay removing any salt residue from the engine bay components. Elevate the front of the trailer and using the low pressure garden hose rinse the soap and excess water from the engine compartment. Elevating the front of the trailer allows all the water to drain from the engine compartment out of the bung assemblies. Once you have completely washed the internals of the engine compartment use the Sea-Doo anti-corrosive lubricant spray on all the metal components you can see in your engine compartment including bolts and hose clamps.  We recommend that you always store your PWC with the seats open or removed to allow water to drain and to allow the engine compartment to breathe/vent when not in use.  A Sea-Doo cover to protect it from the elements is also a very wise investment.

    Your owner’s manual is filled with valuable information on everything from features/benefits to controls and component locations, from pre-operation checks to post-operating instructions, routine maintenance and special procedures.  We recommend that you have a good read before venturing out on the water!

  • Broadwater Marine Project

    August 13, 2014

    JSW Powersports have been closely following both the planning for the Broadwater cruise ship development and the general management of our waterways.  The Gold Coast Waterways Authority (GCWA) called for community feedback on its speed limit review and have had a number of responses come through, many from residents pushing for its recommendation to extend slow speed zones across the Broadwater and Nerang River even pushing for a blanket six knot zone throughout our waterways. If this consideration is put into place the detrimental affect it would have on the community, local businesses and tourism is endless.  Not only will it affect every commercial vessel on the water but the recreational use of the water which is a part of the Gold Coast lifestyle we all love. This along with what the council calls a Broadwater Marine Project means we could see the end of recreational and commercial use of our waterways.  This proposal is the result of a joint initiative of the Queensland Government and City of Gold Coast to seek private sector investment to deliver a cruise ship terminal and multi-billion dollar integrated tourism project. It represents potentially the largest piece of integrated tourism infrastructure in Queensland’s history.  Not only would this be highly detrimental  to the marine industry on the Gold Coast but offers only negative outcomes for boating, fishing, diving and surfing - all the things that people come to the Gold Coast to experience.

    Concept: Cruise Ship Terminal Located on the Waterfront of Doug Jennings Park


    The Marine Action Group Inc feel that ‘A cruise ship terminal in the Broadwater does not pass the common sense test’ and have looked into the effects that it would have on Gold Coast Residents. ‘The marine industry is a vital part of the Gold Coast economy and surveys that have been carried out over the loss of access to important boating destinations such as The Seaway, Marine Stadium and Wavebreak Island have recorded clear opposition by boaties to what has been dubiously dubbed by Council as "The Broadwater Marine Project". The potential for flood issues or the loss of fishing or boating amenity all represent potential negative impacts on our lifestyle and a risk to our property investments so there are good reasons to have a clear understanding of the risks posed by this proposal.’

    Concept: Cruise Ship Consortium propose light rail route circling Main Beach, the Spit and linking Labrador


    Some of the concerns that have been flagged during this debate are:

    - potential for damage to revetment walls of waterfont properties

    - potential for higher flood levels

    - possible that Jumpinpin bar will close with irreversible habitat impacts

    - loss of seagrass beds that are listed as significant (fish breeding nurseries)

    - loss of migratory bird feeding and roosting areas

    - loss of the only city dive attraction in Australia

    - marine safety concerns when Seaway closed - entry/departure of cruise boats

    - closure of fishing and diving activities - entry/departure of cruise boats

    - an extreme flood risk in the event of a marine accident

    Studies carried out for the State in 2003 included an Offshore Terminal in its analysis. An ocean terminal is the only solution that does not cause negative impacts on the environment, surfing, diving or boating safety while still maintaining the right of passage through the Seaway for all boat owners.


    In addition, the flood risks associated with changing the Broadwater hydrology are avoided. An ocean terminal also delivers more - it can accommodate two super liners (not just 1 boutique ship) with a greatly reduced risk of marine accident or adverse environmental or flood impacts. It can also become the biggest artificial reef as part of an offshore diving experience and could even be designed to produce the best surf breaks. It can be a destination itself with marine education center, underwater observatory etc. The construction of an offshore cruise ship terminal can also be integrated with the work needed to the waste water discharge pipes and upgrading of the sand pumping station.   This seems to be the proposal that passes the common sense test, but what will be the fate of our Broadwater?
