PWC Trader strives to create a lighthearted community for all personal watercraft (PWC) enthusiasts. This is a place where anyone passionate about water sports can feel welcome. Just as riders should be courteous of others in the water, we ask that all PWCTrader.com users have the same level of respect online.
No Wake Zones: Much like a no wake zone on the water, PWCTrader.com has a few safety rules and expectations for its community members. PWCTrader.com embraces a vast and wide-ranging community and we’d like you to follow these basic guidelines and treat everyone with respect. Here are a few topics to avoid that will help you stay afloat online:
Sex and Nudity
Nudity is not allowed, particularly if it is in a sexual context. Generally, if a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is not acceptable on PWCTrader.com.
Hate speech refers to content that promotes hatred against a group or person for any reason or on any basis, including (among other things) race, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity, gender identity, disability or nationality. Hate speech has no place in our PWC community and will not be tolerated on PWCTrader.com.
Shocking and Disgusting
Going full throttle on a PWC can be dangerous, and sometimes people do get hurt. However, it’s not appropriate to post violent or gory content on PWCTrader.com. Nothing on our site needs to be shocking, sensational, or disrespectful.
Dangerous or Illegal Acts
PWCTrader.com does not allow any content that is intended to incite violence or encourage dangerous illegal activities. This type of content includes, but is not limited to, instructional bomb making, assassin training, sniper attacks, or videos that train terrorists or othewise provide instruction on terrorist-related activities. Furthermore, PWCTrader.com prohibits all content that depicts or otherwise provokes illegal activities such as mistreatment of animals, drug use and abuse, underage drinking and smoking, and reckless / dangerous operation of any motor vehicles.
Videos involving children (anyone under the age of 18) are particularly sensitive. Please be cautious when posting something involving a child. Videos containing children should never be sexually suggestive or violent or otherwise inappropriate for minors. Be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and will report child exploitation of any type or nature.
As a creative community, it is essential that everyone on PWCTrader.com respects the copyrights and other ownership rights of others. If you are not sure if something will violate someone's copyright, the safest thing to do is to create something completely original. If it's entirely your creation, you never have to worry about copyright infringement or other legal issues because you own the subject matter. If you’ve recorded something from your TV screen, or downloaded a video or music track online, don’t post it unless you have permission. Read our Copyright Tips for more information.
Accounts are penalized for violating our Community Guidelines and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. If your account is terminated, you will not be allowed to create any new accounts. For more information about how the Community Guidelines are enforced and the consequences of violating them, please visit the Help Center.
Welcome to the Community: We’d like to officially welcome you to PWC Trader’s online community.

We know that you are passionate about your favorite brands, riding tricks and other topics within the PWC community. We don’t mind a little back and forth on certain discussions, as long as we remain respectful of one another. Threats, name calling, and trolling will not be tolerated on PWCTrader.com.
