Our journey from student project to a cutting-edge tech start-up.

How did the idea to make an electric watercraft turn into the world’s best jetboard company? All it took was a little radical innovation. 

Student project

A group of students at Sweden’s Lund University pioneer an electric jet-powered surfboard as part of their school project.

The Wakejet Cruise

Radinn releases its first generation of jetboard crafted from off-the-shelf materials and built by hand by a small team of engineers.


Design modularity and an IoT platform are introduced. Radinn establishes industrial manufacturing, becoming the world’s first mass-produced jetboard.

G3 Carve + Freeride

Two new hull styles—the Radinn Carve and the Radinn Freeride—are added, complete with under-the-hood improvements and enhanced performance features.

The X-Sport

Radinn’s Rentals + Lessons Program makes its debut alongside the launch of a new, ultra-durable jetboard. Radinn kicks off its Surf.Club concept in Stockholm and Höllviken.
