Actually a lot of the regular jet skiers here do abide by the rules !! (keep to designated areas and obey speed markers)
What does amaze me is the Jet Ski rentals that cater to the foreign tourist. :
I watched the other week as two young Japanese ladies were let loose in the Bay after about 2 mins instruction. Basically switch on and turn the handlebars. I think they forgot the part about needing thrust to turn as she drifted around sideways and then in a series of lurching movement(Think this ski must have had a clutch
)managed to throw her passenger off.
Seems as though they are not worried about letting beginners loose with high powered machines.
Just the rest of us have to give them a wide bearth!
Unless of course when they are cute and wearing thongs like these 2 ladies and being a gentelman ,offered assistance
