Watersports are fun and challenging but involve inherent risks of injury or death. To increase your enjoyment of the sport and to reduce your risks, use common sense and follow these guidelines: Familiarize yourself with all applicable federal, state and local laws, the risks inherent in the sport and the proper use of equipment. Know the waterways and always have a person other than the boat driver as an observer. The rider, observer and driver should agree on hand signals. Never start out until the rider signals that they are ready. Always use caution and common sense.
REGARDING EQUIPMENT AND TOWROPE:
Always wear a U.S. Coast Guard Type III (PFD) vest. Inspect all equipment prior to use. Check board, fins, and flotation device prior to each use and DO NOT USE if damaged. Use proper tow rope for the activity. Ensure rope is free from all body parts prior to starting out or during use. Keep persons and ropes away from propeller when engine is running, even if in neutral. Should rope become entangled in propeller, SHUT OFF ENGINE AND REMOVE IGNITION KEY BEFORE RETRIEVING ROPE. Propellers are very sharp and can cut wet skin easily.

HOW TO TREAT YOUR BOARD:
It is generally better to keep your board out of the sun for longer periods of time. Buy a protective bag for your board, it helps keep it from being scratched, protects it from the sun and may protect the boat as well. Inspect your board for damage every time you ride. Check the fins to make sure they are tight. Fins do not float. All fins are included with original packaging. Do NOT start from swim platform. Gasoline, oils, and most other petroleum products are bad for your board, so do not let your board come in contact with any of these chemicals. These products can attack some types of plastics and epoxies causing structural failure.
