    Looking for resources to level up my riding skills

    I'm looking for WORTH WHILE books/videos on PWC riding skills. I'm not a racer or a stand up guy. I also don't need entry level basics, like lean into the curves, have to give gas to steer... I don't do ocean riding, mostly inland lakes, small rivers, and the occasional irrigation ditch.

    I just learned through experience. Test the limits of what you are willing to try. Getting on all different types of water conditions. Find what works best for you.

    The best way I know of to increase your riding skill is to ride your ski. Get to know YOUR machine and how it reacts to your body position, fuel level & water conditions.

    Knowing how to overtake, meet head on, crossing situations, which is the give-way and stand-on vessel should be a part of any rider's skill set. Check out the USCG website for this and other important info.

    Good advice

    The more you ride... the braver you get. I still get surprised every now and then.

    Thanks. I still get surprised too sometimes, even after 20 years of riding these things. But there is no real way to teach better riding skills. Ride more and get to know the limits of your machine and more importantly, your limitations.
