What are your mates into? For me, I enjoy dirt bikes more, i get over ski's very quickly, you go flat out one one and back the other, no real enjoyment for me. I guess if your mates have them and you go for trips that'd be alright. I love the rush of ripping through the bush on a bike though. But at the end of the day, it's no fun doing either if you have no one to go with.

what he said ^
plus ive always preferd bikes because you dont rely on a decent day as much as you would for a jet ski . in my opinion jetskis require to much maintanence and get boring quick

Skis are awesome to have especially if a couple of mates have them, when the days aren't so warm u can slap on a wetsuit or go to hazlewood pondage (heated lake)

Btw I'm selling a 2009 seadoo rxpx if your interested lol

Herd its not worth buying a second hand supercharged seadoo cause they cost an arm and a leg to fix if the supercharger goes?

If they're fitted with titanium washers the charger will probably outlast the motor. Mine and all my mates have the titanium washer upgrades, mine being the lowest hour of the lot having only 15 on the clock and a mates got 130-150 hours on his and not a hick up at all.

Go the bike route - you can use a bike at any time regardless of the weather and still have an absolute blast. It's just as much fun to go out solo riding as it is with a group of friends. You can also use them at heaps more places without needing a license, registration or insurance - private properties. Easier to store, transport (more options - you don't need a specific trailer like jetski's) and maintain as well!

I have always had dirt bikes and just recently had an urge to buy a jetski as well, for what it's worth I ended up buying a boat instead - can put everyone in a boat and have a ball without needing friends who also own boats.

I have owned both. Jet ski all the way! If you live where you have no waves I would go a bike but throw in wave jumping and add towing a donut into the equation = ultimate rush
Nothing like towing and hooking your mate or misses over a wave.
