Launch it off the back of a truck into a dumpster. A terrible invention against the peace and tranquility of water users.

 

Windsurfing yes.

Yachts yes.

Fishing boats yes.

Ski boats yes.

Jet skiis no.

I believe this person is not aware of the damage it can cause.
In addition, she wants her marina at the foot of her door.
Maybe a hydrafoiler would be enough, but of course it does less to the Hawaiian Islands and the muscular, tanned guy.
And to say that some want to eliminate geckos, others cicadas and still others roosters.
They make too much noise, they pollute.

lol i should of known not to ask on a forum full of old farts unless you can answer my question go away i dont wanna hear it go cry to the guys that rent out jetskis on the beach   

I would find a firm beach adjacent to HH where you can back a  trailer into the shallows to off/on load, so a good 4x4 and a good trailer is needed. Another option  may be to come to an agreement (you pay something for the privilege) with a hotel that has a private beach, and perhaps a private slipway.  Worth trying.   I do understand that you need some kind of marine licence to operate it, so check with the Marine Department first, or you may find yourself in trouble. Last point, stay well away from the beach Thai jet ski scammers, they will not be amused at you having your own.

thanks for the info i will look in to what licence i need, i dont have a 4x4 just a car and the jet ski im looking at comes with a trailer so was looking for a concrete ramp some where, i did spot one in a fishing village just south of hua hin, but by the sounds of it im better off taking it to racer marina, as for the jet ski renter guys im not too fussed about them i wont be renting it out so its none of their business

Oh! there we are dealing with a person of class and elegance.
But, did you not know that Hua Hin was a city of old farts.
The proof is that we are building retirement homes by storm.
They will have to be filled in.
I recommend Pattaya, there are many old farts, but they are more fun and reluctant by any law.

Please do not dismiss the threat from the jet ski renter people.  They are all nasty pieces of work, often with criminal records and a violent nature. Anyone with a ramp close to HH will be influenced by who you will be pissing off, so that may well not be possible. Take the threat seriously.

This may or may not apply to jet skis, foreigners are not excluded...

 

"To drive a speedboat in Thailand, you must have a Helmsman Level 2 license issued by the Marine Office. To be issued a Helmsman Level 2 license you must pass a written test of 40 questions and pass an oral exam of five questions to prove that you understand boat operating regulations in Thailand. A copy of these regulations is available in Thai only at the Phuket Marine Office. However, the written and oral tests can be taken in Thai or English. When applying, you will need to bring to the Phuket Marine Office: • Three two-inch photos • Either your passport or your Thai ID card. If you are a foreigner, you must also bring a letter from a consulate or embassy of your home country verifying that the passport is genuine, accurate and valid. • If you are a foreigner, you must bring a letter issued by an Immigration Office confirming your address in Thailand. This letter must also be verified by a consulate or embassy of your home country. Thais must produce their house registration paper. • A medical certificate verifying that your are fit to drive a boat. • Proof that you have at least two years’ experience in basic seamanship. This requires a signed and dated letter from the owner of a boat that you have learned on. It is not neccessary to have learned on a Thai-registered boat, but the boat must have been registered somewhere for at least two years. You will need to bring a copy of the boat’s registration, signed and dated by the owner of the boat, as well as a signed and dated copy of his or her passport or Thai ID card. Please note that while Marine Office regulations do not stipulate what type or size of vessels are appropriate for you to have gained experience on, these factors will be considered in the decision whether to issue you a license. You will also need to bring one copy of all documents submitted with your application.

Kittipong Wasukri, Officer, Phuket Marine Office".

Now might be a good time to ask the young OP, "What are your pronouns?"
