Single 20lbs electric motor is good for lake with no wind or current. Speed about 4-5mph on flat surface. Will run hours on 40Ah battery.
2x20lbs electric motors gives total of 40lbs power with speed about 7-8mph. Benefit of using smaller 20lbs motors is that they weight almost nothing and very portable. Easier to carry and handle. 2 motor connected to battery in parallel and run for about 1-1.5 hour on 35Ah battery. If you are not looking for speed, get smaller motor.

  • 2 long straps wrap around aluminum tubes of motor mount, then goes under the hull, and then secure to buckles of same straps.
  • Position frame in a center of SUP, and then pull on strap ends to insure that frame does not move from its position.
  • Make sure that rear strap goes in front of paddle board fin in order to prevent whole contraption sliding backward.
  • Front strap goes all way in a front of frame.
  • Outer edge of wooden board should be around 1" from end of paddle board.
  • Battery or battery box is placed between frame tube and secured with short strap after wires connected to terminals.
  • Attach remote power switch to beach chair or kayak seat to have it easily accessible. Avoid submerging remote switch into the water.
  • Motor throttle or speed switch set to forward and desired speed. Set it to max to go at max speed.
  • Position motor so that board can drive only forward, and then tighten knob that regulates shaft rotation tension.
  • For 55lbs motor you can extend throttle handle all the way just in case if you need to reach it to change speed.
  • Steering done with kayak paddle. Extend paddle all way to the rear on a right if you wish to turn right, or on a left, in order to turn left.
  • To make sharp turn or complete U-turn, simply turn off remote power switch, use kayak paddle to turn around and then activate power switch again.
  • Raise motor out of the water if paddling only with kayak paddles.
  • With several installation and runs, it will become much more easier and quicker to assemble complete set up.
  • Always carry Personal Flotation Device (PFD) and whistle in case of emergency.
