Here are the essential pieces of riding gear you’ll want to wear when riding your Sea-Doo.
1. A life jacket or Personal Flotation Device (PFD)
Vest-style jackets provide the best mix of comfort and protection, fitting securely around your torso while not interfering with your ability to control the craft. Look for labeling inside the jacket that notes Coast Guard approval, whether the jacket is meant for adult or child, and details recommended chest dimensions and weight range. As to the ideal fit, think snug yet comfortable.
2. Neoprene shorts
These are a must. Neoprene’s form-fitting protection will prevent lower body orifice injury from striking the water or exposure to thrust from the jet pump while providing a comfortable layer between body and saddle.
3. Gloves & Boots
Provide not only protection but superior grip and traction at key contact points to keep you in control of your craft.
4. Sunglasses or Googles
These will protect your eyes from wind and splashing water, maintaining clear vision when riding.
5. Weather dependent gear
This may include wetsuits or neoprene riding coats for colder conditions, and headwear for added warmth or protection from the sun.
Sea-Doo offers a full collection of choices to fit any riding condition, while ensuring you look stylish in the process. Sea-Doo gear also includes added, PWC-specific features that tailor these otherwise multi-purpose items to the watercraft lifestyle. Example? Life jackets include a handy D-ring to securely clip on the Learning Key safety lanyard.
