The by-law for the region requires your PWC to be registered for use on the lake, this can be obtained online on the Waikato regional council website here – https://www.waikatoregion.govt.nz/services/regional-services/navigation-safety/rules-and-safety/jetskis/
If your PWC is registered in another area of NZ and displaying your registration number then you do not have to register it in the Waikato region
The only exemption to getting this registration is if your ski has a current NZJSBA or Jet Ski Racing NZ registered race number on it.
Entry is $30 per ski & rider and $10 per passenger, payable on the day in cash.
As we are affiliated with the NZJSBA, all participants are required to hold either an NZJSBA race license or social license. Social licenses are valid for the current season and can be purchased on the day of the event for $20.
A ramp permit is required to use the launch ramp on Lake Taupo, these are available to purchase at local gas stations or can be purchased online here – https://ramp-permit-taupo.dia.govt.nz/
