Report: St. Lawrence River, New York State - Located between the United States and Canada, the St. Lawrence River along Jefferson County in New York State has some of the greatest jet-sking waters in the state. There is both smooth water for the speed enthusiast along with rough water for the wave jumper. Though the best riding is when huge tanker ships, that can be seen daily going up and down the river, have full loads of cargo. The ships can throw 10-20 feet wakes behind them and the jumping is unreal. There are 3 villages along the river in Jefferson County, Alexandria Bay, Clayton and Cape Vincent that provide all necessities for the pwc rider. Restaurants, marinas, and places of interest down the shores for miles. If you prefer, you can ride into Canadian waters and visit a foreign country. There are numerous launch sites along the St. Lawrence in Jefferson County. The best are the State Parks. It will cost you $5.00 a day to launch or you can buy an "Empire Pass" for $49.00 a year, which will give you access to any New York State Park with no additional costs. You can use the pass as many times as you desire.
Report: It's awsome in Greenwood Lake, New York which is on the New York/ New Jersey state line half the lake is NJ and the other half NY. There are countless places to launch but most have a 5-10 Dollar charge but the lake is awsome and somewhat wavy.
Also Lake George, NY is awsome. The lake is enormous and is awsome to ride in. The lake is about 2 1/2 hours north of NY City and you have to get a permit to ride. It has lots of camping grounds and hotels to stay in and is well worth the trip.

Oyster Bay, NY:
This is a great spot for beginners, intermediate and advanced riders.
Oyster Bay harbor has great calm waters close to land to really top out
your jet and see what it can do, or just cruise around and enjoy the
scenery. You can get some mediocre swells to get a little air as well.
If you want to get some big air action work your way toward Long Island
Big swells from the sound coming into the harbor gives you huge air, be
careful though, I'm talking really big. This is only for the more
adventurous. Once you get out into the sound its pretty much just you
and the swells of LI sound which can really take a toll on your body. I
just cruise back into Oyster Bay harbor, take a break at one of the couple
clam bars, get a cool drink and go out for more.
