Joe Cornett & the Great Lakes Jet Ski Riders

As the Great Lakes Ski Riders continue their Florida Invasion, we want to introduce the man behind it all…Joe Cornett! He loves FLSR and like many of you, is inspired to build something more. Teamwork makes the Dream Work!

DECEMBER 2021 – As the Great Lakes Jet Ski Riders make their way through Florida into 2022, we want to take this opportunity to introduce our brothers from another mother…the Great Lakes Jet Ski Riders! They are enjoying our Florida winter with temps in the high 70’s and sunsets that take your breath away. Not to mention the crystal clear waters that we are so lucky to have! If you see these guys out this winter, be sure to stop by and tell them you saw them right here on the FLSR Website! These guys are the most down to earth genuine people and love meeting new riders…so don’t be shy!

Mighty Joe Cornett

We met Joe when he joined the Florida Ski Riders on our FACEBOOK GROUP PAGE. He was always posting interesting content about his adventures and experiences riding up north in his favorite riding area…the Great Lakes. A few conversations with him and he has us laughing so hard and inspired us to learn more. Since his crew is down here visiting Florida, we wanted to introduce Joe to the Florida Ski Riders community and welcome you to FLA!

Joe Ride Mongo. Send it Joe.

So let’s find out a little bit about Joe Cornett. He has been riding since 1991 when he decided to get his first jet ski. A 91 Seadoo XP to be exact. Like so many of us in this group, it was love at first sight and he was hooked.

Since then, Joe has hit his 50/50 milestone. He has owned 50 PWC’s since 1991. Loving both Yamaha and Seadoo makes and models. He also averages 50 hours of ride time each month! Needless to say, Joe loves to ride and be on the water!

So what’s with Mongo? Well, we were wondering the same thing. So when we asked Joe if he has named his skis throughout the years and he grinned and told us he named his ski Mongo. And Mongo sure isn’t stock! So if you hardcore Florida Ski Riders want to see what he has in Mongo…you are just going to have to go find out for yourself!

Like so many of us here at FLSR, Joe would love a chance to ride with Dwane “The Rock” Johnson. Maybe we can talk him into joining us in 2022 for a ride to make this dream come true!
