A recent publication from the Personal Watercraft Industry Association stresses the importance of safety, education and rider responsibility in order to fully enjoy the watercraft. The piece also notes many of the improved design features, stability and engine technology on today’s personal watercraft.
The PWIA offers important safety tips, rider rules, local laws and personal watercraft etiquette for riders of every skill level. Information on instructional courses and downloadable safety materials, including a brief handbook titled “Riding Rules for Personal Watercraft and the PWC Orientation Checklist,” can be found online. Additional information can also be found through the United States Coast Guard.
