Island Inflatable introducing the ePropulsion Lagoon Featured
Garry is in the marine industry in Australia and likes to be on the cutting edge of new marine products. He is a qualified outboard and so has a good feel on mechanics in a saltwater environment. Powered surfboards are a passion, he owns and have ridden jetboards of various brands and models for 4 years now and (like many of us) really been looking at finding a product that would be user friendly, commercially viable, AND reliable with low maintenance.
He found this electric powered motor for SUP’s, Kayak’s and canoes and decided to knock at our door to introduce the ePropulsion Lagoon that maxes out at about 6 knots ... "not fast, but you don’t need to go fast on a SUP or kayak. It’s purely a recreational fun product, user friendly, ready to go and anyone can use it"

Products Features :
Currently 3 of their major products are available on the market: The lagoon, Spirit 1 and Navy 6 motors. No need to go into a manufacturing run, to preorder and wait, products are ready to go.
The motor module of this electric propulsion system can be adapted to any existing small-sized watercraft such as standup paddle boards (SUPs), canoes, kayaks, dinghies, etc.. Lagoon motor module fits into two major standard fin boxes - US fin box and inflatable SUP fin box. If there isn’t a suitable fin-mounting system or if users want to keep the fin attached to the fin box while travelling, ePropulsion universal adapter helps mount the Lagoon.
Battery Pack : “small but mighty”
This 300wh lithium-ion battery weighs 2.5kg, having an energy density of 120wh/kg. The battery can even be placed on your palm without much effort. Small and light, it supports 1.1-hour operation at full-speed of around 8km/h.
Wearable Remote Controller
The remote controller enables both stepless forward speed control and emergency stop via wireless signal. Slide the bar slowly forward to achieve stepless speedup. In case of emergency, press the stop button and the motor will stop at once. The watch-like controller can be either worn on wrist or attached to paddle for easy access.
