All our hires start with a land briefing, this is where you fill out your details, sign our contract and learn all about our area and the commercial laws our skis are governed by. From here we're ready to head down to the water, we gear you up in life jackets and if you have hired a go pro we will walk you through our recommendations on how to use it. Once in the water we touch on the basics of riding, we show you the gears and then you're climbing aboard. After a quick demo around our training bubble you're heading out into our 2km square hire area.
Photos - We snap photos throughout your briefing and of you on the jetskis, they get uploaded daily to our Flickr, follow the link in the ‘Review Us’ tab to access photos from your briefing.
Our skis are commercially registered and there are laws you need to follow while hiring. One law that affects our hirers is the 200 metre distance you need to stay away from everything, this includes other jetskis, at no stage can you get close. Safety is our biggest priority and we have no tolerance on this law.
Our minimum age to be a passenger on a jetski with an adult is 6 years old. Any passenger riding with an adult can still have a drive of the ski under the adults supervision. 16 and 17 year olds can ride alone (not together) with a guardians signature however they can not carry an underage passenger with them.
*Single riding - Please note the 160kg weight restriction is for doubles, with single riders we need to take into account your ability to pull yourself up onto a ski if you were to fall in, the increased possibility of roll overs and equipment damage, as well as the weather conditions for the day you want to hire. If you weigh more than 120kg please pop into the office to book in.
*Sharing a ski - Please note our skis have a weight restriction, this is to protect you and the equipment. The maximum combined weight we will allow is 160kg however it is also subject to our approval, on days where we have a swell in the hire area we may only allow single riders and may advise against taking small children. This is always decided with your best interests at heart, we will not send you out if we believe the experience will be unenjoyable.
IMPORTANT- A thorough understanding and use of English is required. Legally we need you to understand our briefing and what our contract contains. If we can not have a conversation with you in English, you will not be allowed to ride.

Waterproof bags for you to take small personal belongings out with you (phones + cameras). There is a glove box on the jetski which is water resistant for you to place belongings in.
Watches - each ski has a watch to keep track of time.
