How to ride a jetsurf in the real ocean?

Chilling by the ocean and thinking why not to try your jetboard in the mighty waters? Definitely, it's a challenging experience, worth trying. But before such an exciting trip, read some useful tips that will help you to escape "reefs" and additional risks of motosurfing in the ocean.

1. Make sure you wear a life vest and a helmet

Even if you are a professional motosurfer, these things are necessary to save your life. Keep in mind that falling in water at high speed might be not only dangerous, but also pretty hurtful: water can be felt like concrete. So, a life vest is a must-have to protect your body, especially ribs, from hitting the water surface. And a helmet will shield your face from harsh water splashes.

2. Get out of the wave before it breaks

There is a big difference between riding an ordinary surfboard and a motorized board. Usually, surfers try to stay inside the wave as long as it’s possible. But it doesn’t work with the motosurfing in the same way. Jetboards almost don’t have floatation, so you cannot paddle or duck dive on such devices, unlike the “oldschool” surfboards. Trying to overcome the waves on a jetboard, you risk getting stuck in the flow.

3. Avoid big waves

Frankly speaking, motosurfing in the waves is not really enjoyable. And you can hardly find professionals who are ready to conquer the ocean with a jetboard. This is because motorized surfboards don’t use the power of the wave. Choppy waters make your jetboard stuck air inside, and even if you push the throttle, you’re not moving fast enough. That’s why the perfect conditions for a jetboard are calm waters.

4. Take an extra-gasoline tank with you

If you have a petrol surfboard, then it would be convenient to prepare a spare gasoline tank for changing the empty one on the shore without the hassle of refueling your tank in the heat.
