    Hello Fraser, and welcome to the hulk. I myself just started racing CC, last year and it was a blast. I was the oldest rider in my IJSBA sanctioned region @ 57 years old. But I did not let that stop me. Its addictive. I ski in the mid-west region 9, which is KS & MO. I wear a "John wet suit" that's a sleeveless style. I wear a DOT approved Moto Style helmet, I wear jet ski gloves, and jet ski boots, I wear a EVA moto neck brace. I have only fallen off my ski twice but both times were in races. I am glad to have all the protective gear on ... no injuries and really no issues with the high speed flights of fancy. Ha Ha I would be happy to converse with you as you set off on this new adventure of yours. I just love it .... I even got my son to ride in his 1st CC and he took home a 3rd place throphy ... I thing he is hooked now. Stay-n-touch, you can always PM me here on the Hulk ... with any questions you may have. Have fun, be safe and good luck

    Yes, but some helmets made for jet ski riding do not have the DOT stamp of approval. It means Dept of Transportation Approved. This is a requirement for all IJSBA sanction racers. I bought mine @ a pawn shop .... saved a fortune and got a really cool helmet that the colors went with my overall color scheme.
