Seattle Company Creates Electric Powered SUP Fin
Seattle based company, Current Drives LLC, has created the first universal electric motor kit for standup paddleboards, longboards, and kayaks, called the ElectraFin, which can transform a normal board or kayak into an electric powered one, and is now available on their Indiegogo page for purchase.
Last week, Current Drives LLC launched the ElectraFin and their inflatable paddleboard for pre-purchase orders. The 60-day Indiegogo campaign is offering up to $600 off retail prices for the ElectraFin and inflatable standup paddleboards to early supporters.
President of Current Drives LLC and inventor of the ElectraFin, Michael Radenbaugh, developed the electric powered fin after he saw a gap in the market for an affordable electric conversion kit for standup paddleboards and kayaks.
“I wanted to build a low cost and universal electric conversion kit to make any personal watercraft into an electric vehicle,” said Radenbaugh.
The ElectraFin installs in under one minute on most boards and kayaks, and is controlled with a wireless remote connected to user’s wrist or paddle. The high-efficiency electric motor propels kayakers and paddlers for six hours on a single charge, allowing users to go further, explore more, fight against the current and wind, or bring a friend along for the ride.
Current Drives is offering a unique crowdfunding perk for outdoor recreation equipment shops that want to retail their new product once it releases in Summer 2014. By pre-purchasing on the Current Drives’ Indiegogo campaign here will be able to lock in their exclusive sales territories.
