The Powerpods™ is a propulsion device that is used with a stand-up paddleboard. It can travel at a speed of 5-7 mph, can easily be steered, accelerated or braked while on the water, and is a fun accessory for paddleboards, kayaks, canoes and more.
The Powerpods™ is an exertion-free way to spend time on the water on a paddleboard, canoe kayak or other paddle-type vehicle. The propeller attaches to an outrigger bracket that is attached to the watercraft. Pontons may also be added for additional stability.

The Powerpods™ converts any existing stand-up paddleboard (SUP) into a steerable, variable speed, electric SUP. The device easily attaches to an outrigger bracket, and the long steering rod can be operated from a standing position. This propulsion system can also be used for kayaks, canoes and other watercraft.
The handle contains the controls for speed, forward and reverse and stop functions. It is at the top of the rod, and is easily reached. Simply squeeze the handle for selecting the preferred movement.
The device sits on the outrigger bracket, and is connected by a pin that is placed in a hole on the bracket. Turning the rod will allow steering the board, and guiding it around large rocks or other obstacles in the water. The hazards can be seen in the water due to the easy movement of the propeller, which causes little or no wake.
