6 Best Jet Ski Tubes That Last Beyond This Summer

Jet Ski Towing Tube

Being pulled behind a jet ski is a seriously fun experience that leaves you wanting more! And if you’ve got young kids, they’ll be thrilled this summer to be skirting around corners and getting some airtime with the waves.

Jet skis have more agility and as a result, are much more fun for those on the tubes. Just ensure you buy the right jet ski for tow sports since an underpowered jet ski will struggle in choppy conditions.

So without further ado, here are the best tubes for jet ski owners:

1. Airhead Super Mable

For those with a powerful jet ski, the Airhead Super Mable is my best recommendation. You can fit up to three children and the rear and side lower back support will stop your kids from accidentally falling off when turning corners. While it can fit up to 3 children, it’s only possible to have 2 adults on this one given the size and weight restrictions.

2. World of Watersports Thriller Deck

I highly recommend this jet ski tube for those who have owned one prior and are looking to upgrade to a more robust product. The Thriller Deck is designed to be more aggressive while being towed and allows for greater speeds and some wave riding. At the same time, I wouldn’t recommend it for younger children as it tends to ‘skirt’ all over the place.

3. Airhead G-Force Towable Tube

If you want 3 kids (or even adults!) to be laying down while being towed, then the Airhead G-Force towable tube is the best option. I’ve even seen 4 people on these at once! It’s a heck of a lot of fun with plenty of handles to hang on to. Note: If you want to order the 4-person model, it’s a bit more expensive.

4. SportsStuff Stars & Stripes

Nothing says ‘Merica like a towing a tube behind a jet ski this 4th of July, and you know the best part? This is also the most affordable on this list. Its quality isn’t as high as the Airhead models on this list but that doesn’t stop the fun!

5. Airhead Super Slice

The Airhead Super Slice is highly regarded as the perfect all-around choice if you’re into tow sports. It packs up small while also allowing up to 4 riders to experience the thrills on the waterways. It’s quite basic and isn’t designed for speed or thrills, but rather being rigid and helping young riders ease their way into the experience.

6. Airhead Rebel

I’ve actually left one of the best tubes until last! This is only designed for 1 person to ride at a time, but is considered to be one of the most puncture-proof tubes in existence. It has 4 handles and a 12-volt pump included. Keep in mind that it can be a little rough going.

FAQs

Many people have contacted Jet Ski Advice during the past few years seeking advice about towing jet ski tubes. Here are the most common questions received:

Do I need to wear a PFD while riding on a tube?

Yes. While a tube is a flotation device by nature, you’ll be 100 feet or further away once you fall off and the jet ski slows down to retrieve you. It’s a legal requirement in almost every state and jurisdiction to wear a life jacket when riding a tube.

Most towable tubes here are Airhead. Do they sponsor you?

No. While Airhead has definitely been featured most extensively on this list (4 out of 6 options), they coincidently manufacture the best towable tubes on the market for jet skis and ski boats. I would estimate that they ‘own’ 70% of the market and they have been in the industry for decades.

How old does a child need to be to ride a tube?

5 years old is the youngest that a child would be confident to ride a towable tube in calm conditions, but 7 years old is when you can provide them with some reasonable speed above 20-knots.

What is the biggest tube that a jet ski can tow?

You’ll be surprised by how much a supercharged jet ski can tow, easily around 300kgs or 1,000 pounds. Likewise, you’ll be surprised by how big of a tube one can handle:

That jet ski owner above has balls! I wouldn’t recommend non-supercharged jet skis tow a lot of passengers or opt for a larger tube. Always consult your owner’s manual otherwise you may void your warranty.

In Summary

There we have it! 6 epic towable tubes that work best with jet skis. Sure – there are dozens of others out there on the market, but these were handpicked as they can be towed more easily.

Now – don’t waste another day of summer. We’ll catch you out there on the waterways!

9 Things To (Absolutely) Wear When Riding a Jet Ski

Jet Ski Gear

So you’re heading out on your first jet ski riding experience but you’re a little bit unsure what to wear. Fortunately – I’ve got you covered!

Here is what you need to wear when riding a jet ski:

1. CG-Approved Life Jacket

It goes without saying that you’ll need to wear a life jacket, but which type? We’ve done an in-depth guide on the best life jackets but we would say it’s most common that you’ll get a life jacket which is similar to a wakeboarding life jacket designed for calm waterways.

If you’re hiring a jet ski, it’s 99.9% guaranteed that the rental business will provide these to you in your sizing. These may not be so comfortable so you may wish to bring your own.

2. T-Shirt and Shorts

You can’t ride with just a bikini, so you’ll need a t-shirt (preferably long-sleeved) and shorts. Those who ride much faster will need a full-length wetsuit in 2/3mm to protect against skin injuries when crashing at high speeds.

Your shorts should come down to the knees when you’re standing straight, much like typical hiking shorts. This is because they’ll be pushed up the thigh when you’re riding due to the wind draft.

3. Water-Resistent Sunscreen

While I know many riders don’t opt for it, I do recommend sunscreen…even if you’re riding for just an hour. This will mean that you are less likely to get burnt and won’t spoil what will otherwise be a great day on the water.

Look for SPF 30+ sunscreen which is water repellent and aim to reapply every 2 hours. Pay close attention to the back of your neck and your arms which bear the brunt of the sun’s rays.

4. Polarized Sunglasses

Sunglasses are highly recommended when riding to help you see more clearly and avoid squinting while you’re riding. Polarized sunglasses are a step beyond and you can find a good set for under $50 in most outdoor stores.

Avoid the gas station sunglasses which are often labelled as polarized but often aren’t, or just don’t provide the level of protection as the big brands. You’ll also need to buy a strap in case they fall off. My best recommendation is sunglasses for runners as these have more tightness on the face. As an alternative, dirt bike goggles work very well but will be warmer and may fog up.

5. Lip Balm

In addition to sunscreen and sunglasses, lip balm will help your lips stay protected. It’s not just the sun that’ll lead to cracked lips but the dryness of the saltwater and sandy beaches too.

Again, you’ll want to look for something SPF 30+ and take some with you in your pocket. It’s very inexpensive and available in many outdoors stores, pharmacies and gas stations.

6. Hydration Backpack

Depending on your life vest, you may not be able to wear a hydration backpack while riding a jet ski. However, they’re so malleable that you can fit one into the front storage locker of your jet ski.

I recommend leaving these in the freezer the night before and only taking it out when you’re ready to leave home. There is nothing more refreshing than cold water while riding out there on a hot day!

7. Thin Riding Gloves

If you’re participating in a jet ski tour or hiring privately, it’s unlikely that they will supply you with gloves due to hygiene reasons. For less than $20 you can find some good gloves that will save you from chaffing.

There are several types of PWC gloves you could buy that work for the marine industry. My personal favourite is road bicycling gloves as they’re very thin but with some padding in the right spots. After all, those guys have been holding on to the handlebars for decades. Avoid motorcycling gloves as these can get hot, provide limited functions and won’t drain your wet fingers easily.

8. Wide-Brimmed Hat

Following along with our SunSmart initiative on JetSkiAdvice, a wide-brimmed hat will do wonders to keep you cool while riding. You’ll need to make sure it has a string/strap to avoid flying away at high speeds.

You may find it leads to very mild strangulation at high speeds as the hat string pulls on your neck. In this instance, swap the string for a wide dirt bike goggle strap that spreads the load. You can find these replacement straps online for less than $10.

9. Smart Phone or EPIRB

Our last and final recommendation for something to wear is one that could potentially save your life. If you crash suddenly or get knocked out, then having your smartphone with you or an EPIRB could assist in getting authorities to you as quickly as possible.

My cheap recommendation is the SPOT Tracker as it’s not only very cost-effective but easy to clip onto your life jacket. If you’re into jet ski fishing, then go for a GPS with an EPIRB built-in. Your smartphone is the last resort as it may not survive being dunked in saltwater, and nor can you depend on phone service in some riding areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Now that you’ve seen what you should wear, let’s cover some common questions that people have asked me over the years.

Do I Need To Wear a Helmet on a Jet Ski?

No. Helmets are only recommended for those who are riding jet skis very fast (above 40-knots) as well as those riding in hazardous conditions. They are only compulsory in some competitive events such as racing and stuntwork.

Can I Use My Jet Ski Life Jacket For Other Activities?

Absolutely! Jet ski life jackets are well suited to water skiing and wakeboarding as well as canyoning with life rafts or kayaks. Keep in mind that this may wear them out faster.

Do I Need Everything On This List?

In many cases, you only need to wear a PFD approved in your state, territory or jurisdiction. All other items mentioned on this list are optional yet highly recommended.

Where Can I Buy My Gear Cheaper?

Facebook groups are often the best place to find used jet ski gear from last season. Often there is nothing wrong with these items but the individual has moved on to other sports. You might also want to keep an eye on eBay.

In Summary

There we have it! 9 things you really should be wearing while riding a jet ski. Some of these may have been common sense but we know that people get nervous when riding a jet ski for the first time and need some guidelines.

We hope you have an epic time riding out there! Better yet – we hope this propels you forward into full-time jet ski ownership, and if it does, JetSkiAdvice will be here with all the advice to see you safe out there!

5 Best Fish Finders For Jet Skis (Salt and Fresh Waterways)

Best Jet Ski Fish Finders And Sonars List

So you’re looking to get a fish finder for your jet ski after choosing the right fishing jet ski for your weekend adventures. Luckily, you’re in the right place, my friend!

It’s taken me 25 hours of research through personal trial and error, as well as asking for recommendations in some local Facebook groups for PWC riders. From this, I’ve created this list of the best fish finders that you can use on your jet ski that won’t cost a fortune. For those short on time, my #1 recommendation is the Garmin Striker 4.

For those that need a full round-up review, here are the best fish finders for jet ski fishing:

1. Garmin Striker 4

The Garmin Striker 4 is my #1 go-to fish finder for both salt and freshwater environments. It has an easy to use interface and its small design means you can store it easily in the front storage compartment of your PWC. The 4-inch version was enough for me personally, but you can get it in 4, 5, 7 and 9-inch versions for those who want more screen space.

2. Lowrance Hook Reveal 5

The runner-up in this list is the Lowrance Hook Reveal 5. Unlike the Garmin, it’s better for those who want to mount a fish-finder permanently on the dash of their jet ski. There are numerous options you can get with pre-packed maps and even one which has a Chartplotter for avoiding shallow reef sections.

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Asin=B083Pvq356&Format= Sl160 &Id=Asinimage&Marketplace=Us&Serviceversion=20070822&Ws=1&Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Language=En Us&L=Li2&O=1&A=B083Pvq356

3. ReelSonar Bluetooth Fish Finder For Smart Phones

The cheapest fish finder you can get for your personal watercraft is the iBobber. This is a floating sonar system designed to sync up with your smartphone using Bluetooth. Given that you’re going to already take your phone out there on the water, this option makes the most amount of sense. There is a free app you can download for both Android and iOS and the battery will last for up to 10 hours. Just pack a battery pack for your iPhone as running the Bluetooth system tends to run that flat much faster.

4. Humminbird 410150-1 PIRANHAMAX 4

Imagine a marriage between the Lowrance Hook Reveal 5 and the Garmin Striker 4, and you’ve got yourself the Humminbird 410150-1 PIRANHAMAX 4. This monster has a pretty strong sonar designed to pick up fish from more than 100 metres away! You can buy multiple clamps so you can remove this and use it on your boat, canoe or simply jetty fishing too!

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Asin=B01Mdp3Dpb&Format= Sl160 &Id=Asinimage&Marketplace=Us&Serviceversion=20070822&Ws=1&Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Language=En Us&L=Li2&O=1&A=B01Mdp3Dpb

5. Venterior Portable Rechargeable Fish Finder

There is a rise of cheap options with no-name brands coming out of China recently. Now, there is a reason why this is last on this list…and not because I’ve saved the best until last. It’s cheap, it does the job but misses out on the strength and dependability of other well-known brands in the market. Fortunately, there is a 2-year warranty on this in case anything goes wrong.

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Asin=B07Wvqykz9&Format= Sl160 &Id=Asinimage&Marketplace=Us&Serviceversion=20070822&Ws=1&Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Language=En Us&L=Li2&O=1&A=B07Wvqykz9

Buying Guide

Now that you’ve seen my handpicked best options for keen fishermen, it’s time to quickly go through some things you should look for before making that purchase.

Portability

You’ll notice that I’ve only included 1 full-size boat-style fish finder on this list. That’s because a jet ski obviously has much less room to cater for on the dash and most riders aren’t keen to drill holes all over the place. For that reason, portability is my #1 factor as I want something that is handheld where I could even just strap it to my wrist.

Cost

Most big boat fish finders are around the $300 to $500 mark but if you go for portability in mind, then you can get one for much less. Also, consider that you’ll find these for sale 2nd hand on Gumtree and Facebook Marketplace too, often for less than half the price of a new one.

Battery Life

All of the fish finders listed here have at least 6 hours of battery life which is good for most guys and gals on the waterways. Should you need more life, consider taking a charger with you if your jet ski has a charging point on board. Likewise, you can simply take a 12v battery pack just in case.

Waterproofness

It goes without saying that waterproofness is very important. IPV6 is highly recommended at a minimum and I’d even go a step further to fit it inside a waterproof plastic cover. Once saltwater finds its way inside, it’s pretty hard for the electronics to really recover.

7 Best GoPro Jet Ski Mounts For Capturing The Best Films

Jet Ski Gopro Jet Ski Advice

If the sun’s out, then it’s time to grab the GoPro and jump on the jet ski for an epic day out there on the water.

But there’s just one problem…how do you mount it? And where do you mount it? And most importantly….how do you know it aint going to fall off when you’re blasting along in heavy chop?

A conundrum that’s been puzzling PWC owners for years now. Fortunately, I’ve done the research to find you some reliable solutions.

These are the best jet ski mounts for a GoPro:

1. GoPro Handlebar Mount For Jet Ski

Depending on the make/model of your jet ski, you may be able to mount your GoPro right there on your handlebar. It’s really down to your handlebar type and typically it’s the rec-lite or performance jet skis which allow you to mount straight onto the handlebars.

2. GoPro Suction Cup Mount

To save the plastics on your jet ski for a better resale value, you’ll want to go with a suction cup mount. Some of the cheaper ones on Amazon are just flimsy and fall off easily, but the proper mounts from GoPro are awesome. That is – if you mount them on a flat part on the front of your jet ski.

3. Floating Suction GoPro Mount

Now I’ve had a few GoPro mounts over the years and my biggest fear was having the mount fall off into the water. That’s why I never leave the boat ramp without a floating GoPro mount. In fact, I’ve got 2 of these with the other in the front storage locker for my car keys.

4. RAM Mount For Jet Skis

On days when I don’t feel like riding my jet ski, I opt for the canoe or head out on the boat. And this is where I always have a RAM mount fitted for my GoPro and my cell phone.

These are made in America and are just brilliant as a product. If you don’t like the cheap Chinese stuff like myself, then you’ll feel more confident with one of these mounts on your jet ski…though they are quite pricey too. And yes, you’ll need to drill some holes so don’t drill this into a PWC that you’re planning to sell your machine anytime soon.

5. GoPro Flexible Clamp

This is my least favourite on this list. The flexibility of this GoPro mount means that there is too much bounce or flex when you’re riding at high speeds.

On the upside, you can clip this to the front of your PWC where the front locker is. I’ve known of guys who have removed the front lid so they can get a firm clip inside.

6. Headstrap Camera Mount

Again, another way to avoid drilling a GoPro mount onto your jet ski handlebar is to use a head strap. You’ll get the highest possible view where you can film the front of your jet ski hull. Better yet – your viewers will be able to see side by side as you look…while coincidently providing you with some creative sun protection!

What I love about this option is that you can use this for far more than just jet ski riding. If you’re into tow sports, then a head strap mount is perfect. The chest mount below would get in the way due to the tow rope often being held at chest height.

7. GoPro Chest Harness

I’ve left the best until last. One of the biggest problems with mounting your GoPro on the front of your jet ski is the constant bouncing of the hull on a choppy day. Even a calm day can see the video footage being too ‘bumpty’ to ever make it to YouTube standards.

If you mount your GoPro to your chest, you’ll find the video footage to be more stabilised. This is because your body is absorbing a lot of the shocks when you’re blasting across the water at more than 40 knots. I find this a better option personally than a head strap mount as there is less lean-over in the corners.

The best part? They can see the speedometer and handlebar controls. I find that the YouTube audience enjoys that view as much as the scenery as you’re riding along.

Getting Started

There you go! That’s 7 secure GoPro mounts to capture those epic moments out there on the waterways. From there, spend some quality time editing and get that footage up on YouTube! We’d love to feature it right here on Jet Ski Advice and get you some extra views.

12 Popular Sea-Doo Spark Accessories + Upgrades Worth Considering

Best Sea Doo Spark Accessories

Right – you’ve just come home from the dealership with a brand-spanking-new Sea-Doo Spark and are wanting to make it even better. By better…I mean faster.

Or perhaps you’ve been out a few times and just wish it could be a little more…everything.

Disappointments aside, you’re probably not at the stage just yet that you’re listing her for sale in lieu of a more powerful jet ski. So in this guide, I wanted to show you some affordable accessories you can add to your Sea-Doo Spark so you can have more fun out there on the waterways.

Let’s begin!

Best Sea-Doo Spark Accessories and Upgrades

I did a lot of hunting around to make this super easy for you. After all, the Spark has the potential to be a better ski but at this price-point, Sea-Doo does have to cut some corners.

These Sea-Doo Spark accessories are the most popular:

1. Swimming Platform Reboarding Step

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B00Stprpc4&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B00Stprpc4

One of the best investments you’ll ever make into your new jet ski is a reboarding step. It affixes on to the ride side of the transom and has some grip so your knee doesn’t slide off. Pretty easy to install this one yourself or likewise you can take it down to the dealership if needed. Often this is an upgrade that they recommend when you’re buying the jet ski in the showroom.

2. Sea-Doo Spark Fenders

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B00Jlbdcfo&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B00Jlbdcfo

These snap-in finders which mount along your hull without any tools or drilling are a must if you dock often. After all, you want to protect your hull from damage for a decent resale value. They’re also bright red and the benefit is that they’re easy to see at nighttime launching/retrieving at the boat ramp or in setting or rising sun where glare can hamper your vision.

3. Manual Mechanical Reverse Kit

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B00I9Gpat8&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B00I9Gpat8

One of the biggest drawbacks of the Sea-Doo Spark is that they don’t come with iBR and it isn’t something to expect at this price point. Then again, the Spark isn’t designed as a speed demon but if you did want to install a reverse system on a Sea-Doo Spark, then this is the perfect upgrade.

4. Knee Pads

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B07Ynydcrh&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B07Ynydcrh

Going back to the cheap nature of the Spark, it doesn’t come with the hull cushioning that other luxury or performance-orientated jet skis have. Plus the null is quite narrow so you do have space to let your legs sit out wider, but it’s nice to have some knee pads so you can rest comfortably.

5. Storage Cover

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B07Jnz5P2N&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B07Jnz5P2N

If you’re going to winterize your Sea-Doo Spark, one of the key accessories is having a cover. This way you can avoid dust, critters and mould from building up over the winter months. While you can get cheaper covers on Amazon, I do advocate that you spend that extra coin on proper Sea-Doo covers as they fit like a glove.

6. Front Deflector and Cargo Bin Compartment

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B07Jwgy57M&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B07Jwgy57M

If you want your Sea-Doo Spark to not only look a little different but have some storage for a towel and water bottle, then this is what you need. I was blown away by how easy this is to install (about 10 minutes) and the drain holes at the bottom meant that any water that got in didn’t hang around. It’s not water-proof but if you’re just coasting around then you won’t have much to worry about.

7. LinQ Base Kit

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B07Jq34Lnj&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B07Jq34Lnj

You might think this small little attachment plate doesn’t fit this list so well, but it does! By installing the LinQ Base Kit you’ll actually open up a whole world of options including being able to mount an extra gas can, a fishing rod system or a cooler on the back of your Sea-Doo Spark. Well worth it for the minimal price you’ll pay for this.

8. Handle Grips

Q? Encoding=Utf8&Amp;Asin=B07B8D23Lb&Amp;Format= Sl250 &Amp;Id=Asinimage&Amp;Marketplace=Us&Amp;Serviceversion=20070822&Amp;Ws=1&Amp;Tag=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En UsIr?T=Jnt Jetskiadvice 20&Amp;Language=En Us&Amp;L=Li3&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B07B8D23Lb

The stock Sea-Doo Spark grips are pretty ordinary so a great upgrade is installing some more ergonomic grips to hang on to. I recommend these which you’ll typically see on performance and luxury jet skis and they’re designed for larger hands.

What is this weird contraption you might ask? Well, it’s designed to make your docking so much better. Essentially, it’s a retractable tie down line for use at the boat ramp and the dock. It’s not cheap but if you struggle with this part of your day and messing around with ropes, then it’s well worth it. To install, I recommend checking out some YouTube videos as Sea-Doo themselves are a bit vague with their instruction manual.

10. Spark Rear Deck Grip Floor Mat Gripper

Once the rear of your Sea-Doo Spark gets wet, things can get a little slippery, unfortunately. This is why I’m always recommending new owners to get some gripper foam. While you can get some cheap materials from the hardware store used on RVs, Sea-Doo has its own proper floor mats which will make getting back onboard so much easier and safer!

11. Tow Pro Ski Pylon Spotter and Wake Board Rack

While I don’t advocate that you use the Sea-Doo Spark for tow sports, some people do use it for taking the kids around the lake at slow speeds. If that’s you, then getting the ski pylon is a must as it’ll stop the rope from potentially getting wrapped in the impeller.

12. Spark PWC Extended Range Variable Trim System (VTS)

The Variable Trim System upgrade for the Sea-Doo Spark is one of the better accessories to invest in, provided you’ll keep your PWC for the long term. In simple terms, the VTS on a Sea-Doo Spark adjusts your angle on the water so you can tilt down slightly, tilt up slightly or stay perfectly flat. It all depends on the conditions at the time and if you’re doing jumps or towing others. Certainly one great feature to have which you’ll find on many luxury jet skis!

In Summary

There we have it! 12 awesome accessories and upgrades that you probably didn’t know about. I hope these can help you enjoy a better day out there on the waterways without breaking the bank. Most of these you can fit yourself too!

Also…unlucky 13 would be a pair of Sea-Doo Spark mirrors. Generally, I don’t recommend these as you can’t rely on them in the same way that you rely on car mirrors, but for a beginner, they do give some peace of mind.

If you’re wanting to use your Spark for fishing, then start with the very low-cost LinQ attachment I featured above. This will open up more possibilities including the Sea-Doo cooler which does fit the Spark easily.
