While paddle boarding can be a great exercise, sometimes wind might be too strong for stand up paddling or kayaking, or you might be simply feeling too lazy to paddle. That's where MotoSUP inflatable paddle board comes in. Simply attach electric motor to the back of the SUP board built-in transom, and it's ready to go in just a few minutes.
Beginning with traditional inflatable paddle boards, available in both 11- and 12-foot sizes to suit individuals of varying heights and weights, and starting at only very low prices, these MotoSUP boards incorporate a wooden transom on the back. Easy and convenient, this transom can fold down for streamlined storage when it is not in use. The transom can support electric trolling motors of up to 55 pound of thrust, delivering power and speed to your board. For a more relaxed pace, motors as small as 20 pounds of thrust can propel the SUP board nice and quite across the water.
In addition to the transom, the MotoSUP includes D-rings on the top of the board to attach the motor's battery pack. Tie-down straps keep the battery securely in place as users cruise around on the water.
Rounding out the MotoSUP's amenities are four additional D-rings on the central sides of the board. These rings enable users to attach a kayak seat for more adventurous days or a small beach chair for days when they just want to kick back, relax, and let electric motor do all the work for them. This versatility makes the MotoSUP the only paddle board users will ever need to accommodate their energy level and social plans for a particular day.
12' SUP365M paddle board 4lbs heavier than 11' SUP330M, but have more buoyancy, and best suited for heavier riders and more gear. 12' SUP360M have maximum total capacity up to 250lbs.
Electric motor installed on a transom such way that it shafts touches edge of SUP rear, pushing into it. Deep cycle battery 12V20Ah and above secured to surface D-ring with adjustable straps or bungee cords. One of electric motor wires connects to wire from optional remote foot switch for trolling motors (sold on Ebay & Amazon for $20). Then remaining wire from motor and wire from remote switch connect to positive and negative battery terminals while matching colors of motor wires. Red to red (+), black to black (-). Electric motor shaft is tightened in a strait forward position in order to prevent motor rotating left or right during operation, and motor speed throttle set to desired speed. Remote foot switch then either placed on a surface of the board for stand up operation, or attached with cable tie to beach chair or kayak seat strap. To start motor and move SUP board forward, simply engage foot switch. Release switch to stop board. To make wide turn left or right, use SUP or kayak paddle, acting as a rudder. To make sharp turn, stop motor, use paddle to make turn, and then restart motor.
