I used to think that these water scooters were called jets, but it turns out that Jet Ski is the brand name for scooters manufactured by Kawasaki. According to Wikipedia, this type of watercraft is called personal watercraft (PWC), and it’s sometimes comically referred to as a boatercycle.
They are fun to watch because they leave an interesting trail in the water, but sometimes disturb the peace of people who are trying to relax by the water, fishermen, and seahulls. Have you ever ridden such a watercraft?

I watch them all year round. For me, this is extreme. I have no desire to try these PWC.
I agree with you, they seem extreme indeed.
I like to watch them but I wouldn’t ride. It seems too dangerous to me.
It’s the same for me. I like taking photos of them during the sunset.
I rode one of these once but did not feel safe.
They seem a bit scary. I have never tried though.
I have only watched them on movies😀
They seem fun, but also a bit scary.
Yes, it would be fun but it can disturb other peoples peace.
That’s true. There’s rarely peace in summer, haha.
I want to , i love the adventure.
Sorry, I forgot to tell you that your picture is brilliant. I love those colors.
Thank you so much! It’s great that you are not shy in front of a new adventure.
PWC is the most dangerous form of watercraft sadly.
More accidents occur because people feel like they can just step out of a car, and drive a PWC.
yes, I have ridden one (a number of times in fact)
That’s true, especially if you consider the fact that tourists on vacation aren’t always sober. I have seen children riding them too.
i won’t tell you some of the horror stories we’ve seen.
I suspect people would stop riding them, or learn how to ride them safely if they saw some of the things we’ve seen.
Sounds horrible. Unfortunately, many people don’t think twice, and even risk the health/life of those around them too.
it is horrible, i will stop there i don’t want to bring everybody down!
Well… someday I wish I could…
I hope you will be able to! I am a bit scared, haha.
That is the right name – indeed scooters are personal (lol) I have never ventured into any such sports.
Me neither, it seems a bit scary, haha.
