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 without any wind and too exhausted from the day's adventure to pedal home. 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 that there were no viable solutions on the market, he embarked on the journey to build an affordable and easy to transport electric motor for the personal watercraft market.
Today Bixpy offers the Powershroud Motor, waterproof batteries, and dozens of adapters for many different brands of personal watercraft such as kayaks and paddleboards. Their focus was to make an easy to use and powerful device that anyone can purchase. Since 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-propelling watercrafts.
