Jet surfing is an ideal option for sports and leisure enthusiasts looking for a thrill.

But how does a Jet Surf session work on one of Corsica's most beautiful beaches?


Find out everything you need to know before taking the plunge!


A unique nautical activity in Corsica

Jet surfing is a water sports activity that involves surfing on a board powered by an internal combustion engine. You can surf at speeds of up to 60 km/h, controlling your own speed and direction. Our 100% carbon boards give you manoeuvrability and responsive movement and acceleration. 


Palombaggia beach in Porto-Vecchio


In Corsica, we suggest you try this activity on the magnificent Palombaggia lagoon in Porto-Vecchio. This spot has all the qualities you need for jet surfing:

calm, flat lagoon, clear water, translucent waters. 


We look forward to seeing you at the base of our partner Botti Racing Jet Ski. It's a small wooden hut located between the Tamaricciu and Palm Beach Palombaggia restaurants. 

How to find us.


Jet Surf hire: 30 min to 1 hour

A Jet Surf session in Corsica lasts from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the package you choose. You can also book several sessions to extend your Jet Surfing experience on the water. This is an ideal activity for sports and leisure enthusiasts looking for a unique and thrilling experience on the water. Those accompanying you will be able to follow your performance from the instructor's boat.


If there are several of you who would like to take part in the activity at the same time, please let us know. We can then provide you with up to four Jet Surfers at the same time.


Safety during your Jet Surf session

Your safety on the water is our priority! We do everything we can to guarantee you fun and pleasure, without compromising your safety. 


Supervision by an instructor


An instructor is essential to guarantee your safety on the water and to help you get the most out of your Jet Surfing experience. The instructor will conduct a briefing with you on the beach to give you the safety instructions, the navigation zone and the reflexes to have in case of a fall.

During your jet surfing session, you will be accompanied by a professional instructor who will give you safety instructions and teach you the basics of jet surfing. You'll learn how to manoeuvre the board, how to take turns and how to glide through the water with ease. He'll stay with you on a boat for the duration of your activity to keep you safe and give you real-time advice via a walkie-talkie attached to your helmet. 




Before entering the water, you'll be fitted with an impact waistcoat and a helmet to ensure your safety during the session. The waistcoats and helmets are obviously adjusted according to the surfer's height and weight. 

You'll also be fitted with a walkie-talkie attached to your helmet, so you can hear the instructor's instructions in real time. 


Circuit breaker


A circuit breaker will be attached to your wrist for the duration of the session. This circuit breaker allows you to start the board when you're ready to surf, but also to stop the board immediately in the event of a fall. In the event of a fall, the bracelet attached to your wrist will disconnect, immediately stopping the board. So you can ride in complete safety. 


Water sports in Corsica accessible to children


Jet surfing is a water sports activity that can be enjoyed by children. With the guidance of a professional instructor and the appropriate safety measures, children can enjoy this exciting activity to the full and discover the thrill of gliding across the water.


Jet Surf hire from age 10


We welcome children aged 10 and over to take part in this activity. Children must be accompanied by an adult in order to complete a parental authorisation form.


Children wear a life jacket and helmet during their Jet Surf session to ensure their safety in the event of a fall. They will be accompanied by a professional instructor who will supervise and guide them during their jet surfing session. The instructors are trained to teach basic jet surfing techniques, ensure the children's safety and enable them to get the most out of their experience.


Boards bridled throughout the Jet Surf session 


Our Jet Surf boards are adjustable according to the user's height and weight. The boards can be slowed down to limit the maximum speed and guarantee the pleasure and safety of children. 


A Jet Surf session with us will be a unique experience, allowing you to discover the beauty of Corsica's lagoons in a unique way.


Whether you're a beginner or have already tried surfing or jet skiing, this water sports activity is a must try on your trip to Corsica.
