Ideally located on the private sandy beach "Bay Star Beach and Lounge", the nautical base of "Glisse Paradise" is indicated by a sign on the pedestrian promenade of Saint-Laurent-du-Var.
After crossing the private beach, I arrived in front of a small shed where the team of "Glisse Paradise watersport" received me with a friendly welcome.
Despite my apprehension of this activity, the fear of speed, I chose to test the jet ski without a license.
After completing a declaration prior to the use of a motorized watercraft at sea, I was given a wicker crate in which I was able to leave my belongings with confidence; these are arranged in the shed accessible only by the staff of the nautical base. During the preparation of the jet, I waited a few moments on the platform next to where tables and chairs were at my disposal.
I was then assisted by a qualified instructor. I had never done jet skiing before but I immediately felt confident. The instructor informed me about the safety instructions in a very clear way (do not accelerate before the band of 300 meters ...), gave me a lifejacket, then I set off with him, each on his jet ski.
At first, I was afraid to accelerate and make turns, then, little by little, the excitement took over the apprehension; the monitor encouraged me by making signs to tell me that my behavior was good.
I loved the feeling of freedom and lightness that this activity gave me. I recommend it without hesitation!
