If you’re just getting into hydro flight or going to be renting out a jet ski with 130 horses will do. But if you really want to enjoy this sport you definitely need a powerful jet ski, one that can lift a rider well over 20 or more feet above water. There are many great jet skies available with horse power rating of 200+. If you are planning on purchasing a powerful jet ski for hydroflight sports, we recommend staying between 200 and 260 HP. Anything more than 260 HP is a waste of money.
