Necessities for first time owner???
Any good suggestions for what I will need to buy when I get my first SeaDoo this week?
What do I need? What makes riding more enjoyable? Any suggestions for PFDs?
I need all of the help that I can get. Thanks in advance.

Install the metal SC washers ASAP if you buy one with a supercharger. Replace the tie wraps on the clear bailer tubes at the back of the ski with small hose clamps (12 on my RXT).
Check hose clamps on the exhaust system to be sure all are tight and will not blow off at WOT.
Ride it easy for several hours then bursts at max throttle up to 10 hours. Change oil and filter at 10 hours or have it done.
Then go for it. Usually takes about 30 hours for full breakin.

Wet shoes are normally a good idea.... keep your feet free of deformity....
Life vest/gloves/shoes/ and even suit can be bought at multiple locations online.... I like Denniskirk.com.... zappos.com for shoes.... but definitely shoes....

I'm surprised nobody mentioned this--- A piece of rope to tie at the dock and that is long enough to double as a tow rope. Why paddle if someone is nice enough to give you a tow? Good to have a paddle to. I have both.
Then like evey one else mentioned. Life jackets (PFDs), sunscreen. I keep a pair of sun goggles in the glove box. You slowly aquire more stuff over time. You always figure something out that you should have each time you go out.
