A jet ski umbrella is a great way to protect yourself from the sun’s uv rays. While there are only a few umbrellas made for jet skis on the market, there are still a couple options that should get the job done. This article will cover the best for umbrellas for jet skis.
Best Jet Ski Umbrellas
The four best jet ski umbrellas are the Sea-Doo chill shade, the Ammsun umbrella, the Sport-Brella Versa-Brella, and the AosKe portable umbrella.
Sea-Doo Chill Shade
The Sea-Doo chill shade is the best jet ski umbrella if you have a sea doo gti. It perfectly connects to the two ports in the back of the jet ski, and the front pole connects to a handle in the front. This umbrella is great because it is the only jet ski umbrella that you can actually ride a jet ski with.
You can ride up to 50 mph with the sea-doo chill shade without it falling off. This makes it the perfect choice if you need some covering while you ride. Unfortunately aside from only being compatible with the sea doo gti, it has also been discontinued by sea doo. While this means you can no longer buy it on the sea doo website, there is a big resale market and plenty for sale on ebay. Even though most of them on the market are used, they will still get the job done.
While you can also try to rig this thing to a non sea doo gti, it might take some good handy work. If you want a more simple option, you should check out some of the jet ski umbrellas below.
The Ammsun Umbrella is a great jet ski umbrella if you don’t have a sea doo gti. It can rotate 180 degrees so you can tilt it to make sure it covers you while you sit on the jet ski. This umbrella also has a wide surface area of 43 inches which should be able to cover you and a passenger if you have one.
It can clamp on to any surface that has a width of 35 mm (1.4 inches) or smaller. If you don’t have a small enough surface to clamp it onto, I suggest that you clamp it onto a jet ski fishing rack. You can then tilt the umbrella to make sure it blocks the sun.
This umbrella is perfect if you want to fish from your jet ski, as it will provide shade over most of the jet ski. If you plan to fish, you should check out the best jet ski fishing accessories.
The only real downside of this jet ski umbrella is that you can’t put it up while you ride, as the wind resistance will mess it up. If you want an umbrella that can withstand the wind while you ride, you should check out the umbrella below.
The Sport-Brella Versa-Brella is another umbrella that you can clamp onto your jet ski. Due to it’s aerodynamic design, you can also cruise on your jet ski with the umbrella set up. I wouldn’t suggest going over 20 mph though. It is the cheapest jet ski umbrella on this list, and you can get it from amazon for around $20.
The clamp can open up to 1.5 inches, so you can clamp it onto a handle or a rack. What I also like about this umbrella is that it has a swivel clamp that allows you to easily adjust the position and angle of the umbrella.
The only downside about this umbrella is that it is a bit small. I definitely suggest that you get the XL size, which has dimensions of 44 x 44 inches. The small size of the umbrella does make it easy to transport.
If you are looking for a large umbrella for your jet ski, you should check out the AosKe portable umbrella. This umbrella has two strong, fiber layers which make it very durable. The umbrella frame is made from a strong carbon fiber which helps the umbrella stand up against strong winds. However, I suggest that you only put the umbrella up while the jet ski is stationary.
The pole has a 360 degree swivel rotation which allows you to adjust the position of the umbrella. Since this umbrella does not come with an attachable clamp, I suggest you fasten it into a fishing rod holder like the picture below.
While there aren’t many jet ski umbrellas on the market, there are plenty of umbrellas that can get the job done. I hope this article helped give you some ideas of what umbrellas to use for your jet ski, and how to set them up.
