The Wakejet Cruise Jet-Powered Wakeboard Is a Water-Sport Wonder

Sweden’s Radinn—short for Radical Innovation—has introduced the Wakejet Cruise jet-powered wakeboard, which features the latest in board-sport technology. Similar to powered surfboards from Jet Surf and other companies, this board is powered by an onboard motor. The Wakejet Cruise features a jet-propulsion engine, which the user controls by wireless handheld remote. The board can travel for up to a half hour at its top speed of 25 knots or for up to a full hour at slower speeds. (The replaceable battery pack has a recharge time of only 60 minutes.) Made with military-grade carbon and Kevlar composite material, the 64-pound watercraft is equipped with magnetic safety switches that disengage the motor if the rider falls off. An onboard computer system and GPS navigation help riders traverse any ocean surf, lake, river, or urban waterway. The board would also be a perfect water toy for use on a yacht or at a seaside vacation home. Founded in 2012 by the professional wakeboarder Philip Werner, Radinn is moving full speed ahead to deliver the Wakejet Cruise—priced at approximately $16,000—in time for summer. (radinn.com)
