In the summer of 2014, Bixpy got its start when Founder Houman Nikmanesh was stuck about 5 miles off the coast of San Diego in a Hobie Island sailboat too tired from the day's adventure to pedal home as the tide is coming in and with no wind. When he finally got home he began researching for a way to place a motor on his Hobie Island sailboat to make upcoming trips easier and safer. Finding no viable solutions on the market he embarked on the journey to build an affordable easily transportable electric motor for the personal watercraft market.
Today Bixpy offers the Powershroud Motor, waterproof and immersible batteries, and dozens of adapters for various brands of personal watercraft such as kayaks and paddleboards. Their focus to make easy to use and powerful devices that anyone can purchase. Since late 2017, Bixpy has created thousands of motors for kayaks paddleboards, divers, snorkelers, and avid water sports pioneering the way for a new industry of personal self-propelled watercraft.
