Making sure that your children have high quality junior water skis is never as simple or as straightforward as a lot of people would have you believe.
No, it isn’t that there aren’t plenty of top-quality options out there to pick and choose from – there are plenty already and more being pumped into the market on a regular basis – it’s just that junior water skis themselves can be pretty expensive and you’ll know your kids are only going to outgrow them sooner rather than later.
Here are some tips and tricks to help you save big on these water skis without sacrificing quality or safety along the way.
Purchase junior water skis with adjustable or flexible bindings/boots
One of the smartest things you can do when purchasing junior water skis is to invest in those that offer adjustable or flexible binding and boot configurations.
This allows you to purchase water skis that are a little bit longer than you probably would have originally giving your child to grow into the skis without having to sacrifice the fit of the actual binding or the boot. You’ll be able to swap them out or adjust them as necessary to keep the perfect fit, helping them stay safe out on the water without having to buy new skis all the time.
Purchase junior water skis at the end of the season
If you can hold off on purchasing these kinds of water skis until the end of the season – or the dead of winter – you can save a mountain of money on skis before the new product line from each individual company is released in the spring or early summer. It isn’t at all uncommon to save hundred dollars or more on these kinds of skis with this approach!
Invest in quality preowned junior water skis to save a bundle
With a little bit of research, due diligence, and careful inspection you can easily purchase quality preowned junior water skis at a fraction of the price they would have cost you by purchasing them brand-new – but the research and due diligence as well as a careful personal inspection is critically important.
You don’t want to end up purchasing water skis that are in safe, have damage that could compromise their performance, or just aren’t going to provide you with the safe and stable platform you need to teach your kids how to waterski in the first place.
