Does anyone know how deep you go when you fall off a jet ski? I can't find this info anywhere. If the water is 6' deep is that enough to avoid injury? My gut tells me you aren't going that deep into the water when you fall off but I'd like some confirmation.:nerd:

I mean there is no standard depth that every person is going to go to when they fall off a jet ski. 6' may be cutting it a little close but you should be fine. I figure that some people can touch the bottom at that depth which makes me slightly nervous that if you fall off a leg or something could hit the bottom.

when you come off at speed you will skip across the water best thing is to curl in a ball until you stop you will not go under more than 1meter 3ft


don't ride in shallow water if you hit the bottom you will go straight over the handlebars if you hid mud or sand it is going to hurt and brake bones stay safe.

It also depends on what you're doing when fall off. I'd think that normal riding(flat water) you're going to skip like xdrian said. But if you're doing what he's doing in his avatar and either fall off somehow or have to bail, you're going go deeper I'd imagine.

I can tell you that even when the waves are pretty choppy (2-3 foot on an inland lake). You still just bounce around don't go to far down. I lost it last year going around 35 in the that chop and its just like hitting a wall. Stayed on top of the water till the very end and barely went under water. I was pretty sore after though!

Had my Spark in Probably 2-3 inches of water, skimmed bottom several times all mud and sand coming out of the Stikine River in alaska.
