    Depends on the water conditions, watercraft model, speed, and how you are driving it. Fast turns, donuts and spins can create a lot of spray. Wind can be a factor.

    Straight ahead cruising on smooth water with gentle turns on a hull that deflects spray out and down can be fairly dry.

    Footwells often get wet, how much depends on the model and how you are riding.

    Ride against the wind/current on a windy day and you will not stay dry.

    Do you have a full wet suit you can use for PWC riding?

    In poor weather a good wetsuit can really reduce the discomfort. There are riders who go out in near freezing weather and can stay warm. Riding boots, gloves, head covering, riding glasses. Plus the wet suit.

    Dry suit is also an option, but not many seem to actually use them on PWC.

    We've been riding in 46 degree water since the 2nd week in April in Upstate NY, it's up to 50 degrees now but we did have some snow falling on our last ride! 5 Mill wet suit set, when worn together it's 10 mil over your core. 7 Mil boots, 5 mill gloves 1.5 mill skull cap. Totally comfortable, actually get's a little warm if your just sitting there.

    I stay completely dry on my FX in calm water if I want to. In the rough stuff and wind I was soaked, but so much fun.
