6 Things You NEED When Purchasing a WaveRunner

You've done your research and paid your money, now comes the FUN part! You get to hit the open water and play on your new WaveRunner! Don't get out there just yet though, you still need a few more things in order to have a fun and safe time out on the water. We have the best WaveRunners at the Lake of the Ozarks to pick from, and we want to make sure you are properly prepared before heading out. That's why we're including these six must-haves in the sale of our new 2014 WaveRunner models!


If you have the option to get a trailer, always take it. A trailer may seem optional to some, but it really is necessary. Even if you are docking your WaveRunner, you will most likely need to move it at some point. You don't want to be in a pinch for a trailer later and not be able to get one.

Life Jackets

When adventuring out on the lake, you really must have a life jacket. It is against the law to not wear your life jacket when out on your WaveRunner. Not only that, but 79% of people who were killed in boating accidents were not wearing their life jacket. You'll want to make sure that the one you wear will fit you well, so you ought to try them on to find the perfect fit. You'll also want a variety of other sizes for when you take guests out.


A cover for your WaveRunner is a necessity that you don't want to skip out on. Whether you store your WaveRunner in a building or out at the dock, you will want a cover to protect it. When making an investment like this, it is always worth it to invest just a little more to protect it from damage, dirt, and weather.


You want to be able to tie your WaveRunner at the dock when you're done, and you want to make sure and have the right ropes or dock lines to do so. Surdyke Yamaha is a great place to get your WaveRunner accessories at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have an online store where you can find accessories, or we would love for you to come visit us and let us help you find what you need.


Bumpers are a must when you are at the dock. They will protect your watercraft from getting damaged. You should really have two bumpers and 2 bumper lines to be prepared.

Fire Extinguisher

Boats and PWC can potentially be a fire hazard. The motors or the fuel systems are extremely flammable with the gasoline, oil and grease, so you'll want a fire extinguisher that can handle that possibility. Though you can't carry it with you while on your WaveRunner, you can keep it with you at your dock. You can also carry it in your vehicle as part of your lake day supply kit. Don't be caught un-prepared.
