Some useful trivia about jet skis

There are various brands of PWCs; however, the most famous manufacturer is the Japanese company Kawasaki, which calls their version of the PWC the "jet ski".

The latter is usually the one used for performances, stunts, and competitions so it is mostly used by professionals.

In addition, jet skis come in various sizes. There are jet skis for solo riders, and there are also those that are good for two people, which makes it the perfect choice among adventurous couples. If you want to do something romantic for your honeymoon on the beach, you might want to take up a jet skiing experience.
