I recently came back from holidays on the Gold Coast. I hired a jet ski. (Twice, actually). I thought it was similar to motorbike riding but it's different. Look at where you want to go was probably the only main rule that applies. Maybe throttle hard whilst turn is the other one. There's no counter steering. I did a few sideways action and some near donuts but I was very much a beginner on a jet ski. I did better than some of the other "tourists", (especially those from overseas). Not sure if my bike riding experience helped. Our "observer" did say I went fast and I did OK. Well, I won't be picking this hobby up back home. It's too expensive, I have no where to store a jet ski plus I will need time to tow it, park it, etc. I guess it was my holiday fling that I'll have to forget about until my next holiday. For those who have experience in both bikes and jet skkis: what are the similarities and what are the differences?
