    Haha but perhaps think about sourcing a little bit of paint so you FEEL less camp?

    Hi All.

    Thinking of buying a Jet ski for the summer and wondering if anyone knows where I can take it and wake board behind it?

    thanks

    Somewhere with water, as we are an island that should be easy enough to accomplish.

    May be more useful to state where you live?

    Bedfordshire.

    I’m just not sure if you can go on any lakes as most of them state you can only have certain boats and says nothing about towing behind a jet ski. Just though looking here for some advice would be better. Clearly doesn’t seem like it.

    Nothing like signing up to a computer forum, posting in the car section, asking for advice on a jetski on an 11 year old post.

    Speed restrictions, towing and wash all considerations. Are you getting a wake specific one? tiny wakes on standard pwc.

    O don't know specific lakes in Bedfordshire by the way.

    Anywhere really. Don’t have to be lakes. Even flat ish lagoon or bay. Any pointers to areas would be appreciated.

    You would be surprised how little info there is on this topic. Scoured good old google all day. Just want to know if it is possible and where to go if at all before forming out for a decent enough ski to wakeboard behind.

    No idea on specifics. I wakeboard either on the med or at JBski. If your focus is wakeboarding you would be better off paying for boat tows (or get a boat if you have the resources). If you just want to have fun and own a jet ski, fill your boots.

    I have a Jetski. No way could you wake board behind it. They produce hardly any wake. Get a wakeboat

    You can get wake specific ones that kick up a bit more but much like the first post he's being just a tad vague about his plan. I used to wakeboard behind an old wave runner I had and it was a laugh but not good compared to boat of course.
