Jet skiing is one of the most popular water sports in Ayia Napa. It’s also a brilliant thing to do on the Saturday afternoon of a stag do. Fast enough to be fun, chilled enough to be kind to lads with headaches, it’ll bring even the most hungover feller back from the dead!
The list of reasons why jet skiing is awesome goes on and on. One: when you get the hang of it, you look like James Bond. Two: girls in tiny bikinis do it. Three: it’s dead easy. Even a total no-hoper can bust out a few moves. Plus with the wind and spray in your face and the sea air in your lungs, you’ll forget all about the fact you haven’t slept since you left the UK.
Like a sports car, a jet ski is easiest to control when it’s moving faster. The steering uses water, which is sucked from front to back through the jet engine, providing both the power for forward motion and the traction you need to turn. Listen to your instructor, and you’ll learn to steer smoothly, creating massive rooster tails of spray. You’ll be turning heads in no time!
Book this in for Saturday afternoon, when the hangovers are starting to wear off and the boys need something to get their energy levels up again. 15 minutes later, you’ll be whooping and yelling as you scream along the shoreline of Nissi Beach!
