Radinn Teams up With Surfgaarden to Make Waves with Veterans


The Radinn crew not only likes to go on adventures, but they also like to take adventures to others, so it was no surprise to learn of their meet up with the Surfgaarden team in Denmark. The Radinn group was there to make waves with veterans struggling with PTSD and to turn them onto the sport of jetboarding.

Surfgaarden is a rehabilitation center for veterans who are struggling with PTSD and Ocean Therapy is a main component in their rehabilitation. The center is in an area known as Cold Hawaii. It’s a great location for surfing because it picks up swells from storms out of the north. The Radinn crew brought boards and positive vibes to aid the veterans in their healing process.

Surfing requires 100% of your attention, which makes it the perfect medicine for veterans who suffer from PTSD. Riding waves is the perfect escape from a racing mind, so after a quick lesson on how to operate the Radinn Jetboards, about 15 veterans went out to ride in the inlet of Thisted. They got to forget about the bad and focus on the good.

The guys had a blast riding the Radinn Jetboards and program Manager Peter Emil said it was a dream come true for a lot of the veterans. They felt like superheroes zipping around on jetboards. He was stoked on the Radinn experience and that they are making these adventures possible for different groups of people. Check out the cool video that highlights the day of happy vets stoked on Radinn Jetboards.
