    just a question, maybe because we have no regulations in the caribbean, we tend to race without helmets, but the helmets for jetskis I would imagine are different than what are worn for motorbikes, and also if you were to fall at high speed with a helmet, is it possible for the water to rush in and possibly break your neck...
    The reason I am asking these questions is because we are in the planning stages of having jetski racing in Antigua, but I would love to get some regulations in an official event so we can plan with safety being priority!!

    Thanks,
    JC

    All riders MUST wear full safety gear to participate in the race. This will
    include:
    o


    Sea worthy watercraft (800cc & up) with numbers on both sides
    o


    Numbers must be visible from 30 feet away.
    o


    Wet suit shorts, or half body suits
    o


    Numbered life jacket
    o


    Eye Protection
    o


    Gloves

    Monster Media strongly recommends the use of helmets. Helmets are,
    however, not mandatory. They are optional.

    JC, My preface, is I'm no expert, or no pro. In my limited experience of ocean riding, I've personally hitten my helmet face on the bars 20+ times. Without a helmet, umm, my face/teeth would be pretty messed up! I've fallen off of my ski IN THE OCEAN WOT, Never! I think I worry much more of my face hitting the bars, rather than bucketing effect if I fall off. I have control of the gas, if I'm in trouble, let up! I donít have control of my body slamming unexpectanly hitting the bars. This weekend, WOT run I hit my face at least 4 times on the bars. Hell, even scratched my GPS with my helmet I hit so hard.
    I use an MX helmet, most guys also use MX helmets, I donít believe they make PWC specific helmets, I could be wrong though. I think safety first, get them guys to wear helmets if you can. Going to the dentest, and doctor is gonna cost more than getting a $99 helmet.
    Oh, and to answer your main question, about breaking a neck, anything is possible. Work on hand strength, and get lifter wedges, your more apt to stay on your ski. Or just slow down.
