    About time people realise it’s not a fun fare the sea and jet skis are dangerous if not handled correctly and with competent swimmers I’ve often watched the craziness the near misses and the people hiring them out no backups nothing crazy crazy .

      This was not a man who didn’t know how to operate a jet ski. He may have been a “visitor” to the island but this island was and is his family’s home. This is my friend’s son, she has not even laid him to rest yet. Please have some respect.
