When most people think of wakeboarding, they imagine being towed behind a large powerboat. While there's no question that this is the most common form of wakeboarding, it's certainly not the only option. It's also possible to pull a wakeboard with a personal watercraft, particularly when you buy a model that has a high-horsepower motor. If you have some friends who are interested in wakeboarding, it can be fun to buy a board and a tow rope and head to a local body of water to try this activity. If you buy a two-seat watercraft, you may want to have a passenger sit behind you to monitor the person on the wakeboard while you focus on driving.
Many personal watercraft owners enjoy using this machine for fishing. The compact nature of your watercraft will allow you to get into shallow water and tight spaces, and it can be comfortable to sit while you cast your lure.

You can even carry a small anchor with you if you wish, or simply allow your machine to drift a short distance while you fish.

Provided that you keep safety in mind, there are all sorts of exciting ways that you can do this. There are a lot of watercraft enthusiasts who film their exploits with action cameras on their chests or heads.
