Jet skiing summer 2011 (bottom) and summer 2012 (top)
If you have ever ridden a jet ski, you know the feeling of freedom it gives you as you zip over the waves. I think I was about seven the first time I went jet skiing with my dad on vacation in St. Martin, and since then, we have done it every year. When I was fairly young, I remember my dad laughing or yelling because my hair was getting in his face or him trying to go faster and me screaming at him to slow down. Even so, I always had a great time.
Although I was pretty old, last summer was the first time I went out on the jet ski by myself. This time, I tried to go as fast as I could and the best part was feeling the jet ski jump over the waves as I increased speed. While falling off in the middle of the ocean, where potential sharks might be lurking, was at the back of my mind, I figured it was best to push it to the far back and just enjoy the experience.
This summer, I plan on going again, and I also think it would be neat to finally go around my home state as well with a few friends.
Who else has been jet skiing or has this on their bucket lists? What other water sports have you done or do you enjoy?
