It is very exciting to finally get your own JetSurf and take it for the very first ride. For somebody, it can be even a little bit stressful when they realize they will have to take care about everything with no support from the JetSurf instructor.
Don’t worry though! We will help you to set everything up.
1. Oil gas mixture
JetSurf has two stroke engine so you will have to mix gas with oil. The suggested ratio is 1:40 if you have a new model and 1:50 for models with more than 10 hours of riding. You can use an oil mixing bottle for getting the right ratio of gas and oil. A simple tool but very handy.
2. How to charge JetSurf battery
Not just before your first ride but before every ride make sure your battery is fully charged. It’s always a bummer when you are standing on the beach ready to ride and you just find out the battery is death. It is not a total disaster yet because JetSurf has the car charger connector so if you have it on you, you can be back on the water in like 30 minutes.
3. How to unfold JetSurf stand
Every new JetSurf has a stand included. You can find the stand in the side pocket of the JetSurf cover bag. Allways Use the JetSurf stand only on a solid leveled ground.
What you should use JetSurf stand for:
- keeping the JetSurf above the sand surface (never let any sand to get inside of your engine department)
- servicing of your JetSurf
- washing of your JetSurf
Make sure you know how to unfold the stand before your first ride on JetSurf so you won’t waste any time with trying to figure it out on the beach.
4. How to install JetSurf fins
Installing of JetSurf fins is really easy. Just make sure you won’t loose any screws otherwise you will have to pack your stuff and go back to JetSurf service for new ones.
It is strongly recommended to use all 3 fins under all circumstances. It gives you the maximum control on the water.
Always remove all 3 fins when transporting the JetSurf. The fins are not designed to support the JetSurf’s weight and could break under its pressure.
Do not leave the screws of the side fins loose inside of the engine department, always pull them out. These screws could get in hard to reach places and even damage your engine.
5. How to connect and disconnect JetSurf fuel tank
Always disconnect the fuel tank before transporting JetSurf or working inside of the engine department (such as service or repairs).
It is also good to spray on the engine some protection from moisture and rust. We are using WD-40.
Before you get to your first ride on JetSurf you need to buy any product to protect your engine from moister and rust. We are using WD-40. If you want to take good care of your engine and have it in the best possible condition it’s necessary to spray WD-40 on the engine before and after every day on the water.
Right now we are also testing product of Jet Renu company, full name Jet Renu shield. According to the owner of Jet Renu, this product should have even better quality than WD-40 and it should be environment-friendly. Until we finish the testing we won’t be getting in any conclusions though.
