The instructors at Cleveland Stand Up Jet Ski meet aspiring wave riders at five locations around the city to acquaint them with the stand-up riding style on Kawasaki 800 SXR jet skis. The company eschews the typical ride-on-top jet ski for the more difficult to operate—but also more exhilarating—jet ski riding style that solo riders control from their knees or standing up. Novices are led through the process while the instructor oversees, guiding them from motoring slowly in the knee position to standing tall atop the powerful machine and reaching speeds up to 55 miles per hour. Two-hour lessons also equip riders with a Go Pro camera, which captures all the water-spraying action and high-fives with flying fish in 1080p high definition.
