when learn to ride a bicycle for kid, they would add 2 sets of wheels by the back wheel. So the kids would not fall off.

cause it looks like these jet skies had extra floats added to make them more stable (and look rediculas at the same time)

I believe he was referring to the added light bracket that the mounted on the jet skis, or the more floats.

Jet Skis are designed to go fast and whip around in small turns. These have "training wheels" to keep them from falling over, but they also keep them from going fast and from whipping around, just like training wheels on bicycles.

I have no doubt that they work well for their intended purpose. They just look odd.

Okey!
Then I understand what you mean. They are intended for picking up people rfom the water. People who have fell overboard is supposed to crawl up on these jet skiīs.
