Custom Kayak Propulsion Systems
Designed and assembled in Austin, Texas
Introducing a new patented propulsion system, originally designed for Hobie Outback and Pro Angler kayaks, now available for a wide range of kayak makes and models, including Jackson and Native Watercraft.
Texas Power Paddle is the industry’s first patented fully retractable, custom electric propulsion system designed exclusively for the top end kayak enthusiasts. The retractable hinged system allows the unit to stow completely into the hull cavity when being transported and automatically deployed when activated.
We love the Hobie Kayaks and their MirageDrive system but wanted a little boost when fishing on the Texas Coast and inland lakes. Using other systems we had to compromise between removing the Hobie MirageDrive and inserting a Torqeedo, Bixpy, or another electric drive unit. Both of these units are nice but don’t let us get into the shallow water and don’t let us use the Hobie Mirage pedal drives at the same time. So we invented the Texas Power Paddle © which is a fully retractable, custom electric propulsion system designed just for the top end Hobie kayaks and enthusiasts.
