Either way you need your kill cord on and I suggest some training from RYA or similar.

Thanks for this. I've had a number of years experience with PWC/jet skis and completed RYA courses in PWC handling as well as Safety Boats when supporting dinghy sailing competitions. My lack of experience is more to do with venturing out further from jet skis.
