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.
