Firefly drive equipped boards are a joy to ride and paddle. They have the perfect combination of speed and balance that can only be achieved with our unique, forward-mounted drive. Firefly eSUP boards turn smoothly and have excellent handling characteristics on the water.
Firefly drives are fast and quiet. Cruising along at a brisk 5 mph, all you hear is water lapping off the bow. Firefly's quiet operation ensures you're not distracted from the sublime experience of standup paddle boarding.
Firefly drives are design for quick and easy rigging to get you on the water fast. Simply slide the motor shaft through the board, insert the set pin, put the battery on the Velcro strip and connect to the motor. Wa-lah, you're ready to go.
Firefly electric drives have zero emissions to the air or water. Electric is the future of clean environmentally sound water sports. Bring the future to your favorite beach with a Firefly eSUP.
