Thank you for your ongoing support as a current member of the Australian Jet Ski Association. The Livin Pirate Day as shown in the above photo was a fantastic day showcasing the jet ski community getting behind the fantastic cause, Livin.
We’re successfully growing as your peak body for safe, best riding practices and advocate for legislation and infrastructure that enables the sport. As part of this journey into 2019 we’re pleased to launch AJSA news so our active members are across the latest updates, upcoming events and have the opportunity to be heard.
We’ve seen quite some activity on the water over the summer break. News headlines featuring jet skis are appearing more frequently associated with both incidents and rescues. Stay safe out there and remember to keep your distance off.
Association update: Discussion at the recent mgmt committee meeting included reviewing the AJSA brand, a range of exciting events for 2019, emerging safety risks ahead of summer season and we welcomed Barrie Hurst as a General Committee Member. Barrie has enjoyed a career in motorsport and seeing this transfer to the water, has passion to see a show and shine event in the AJSA calendar.
Water Safety: AJSA applauds the recent SEQ Water media campaign “Still water can still be dangerous” featuring our headline “distance off” mantra. Our advocacy with regulators focuses upon balancing rules and rights, education and enforcement.
