Get The Most out of Your Waterfront!

Our Waterbikes are made in Long Beach California, and there’s nothing else like them in the world.  We are the only manufacturer in the world that produces a hybrid electric/manual Waterbike which is capable of withstanding the marine environment.   

I have been in the Waterbike business for 10 years, the Marine business for 35 years, and I have owned and operated every possible water bicycle craft built.  After lamenting the poor construction and design of watercraft made overseas, I decided three years ago to build a high-quality, durable hybrid electric/manual water bike that’s capable of meeting the rigors of our rental and sharing programs. Our Waterbikes can be ridden by nearly anyone, boast very few breakdowns, and they are very easy to fix.

The lack of competition on the water is worth mentioning as well.  As opposed to the wildly-successful scooter companies competing for business on land, we are the only Waterbike sharing company that operates in the water.

PROP For Marina Managers:  How It Works

Let’s explain what our smartphone-based Prop App and GPS systems will do for your marina!

  • With manager-level access, you (the marina manager), lifeguards, office staff, our main office at propeller, and anyone else you designate will be able to know where all Waterbikes are at all times.
     

  • Riders will be able to pick up your bike at designated areas and return to a different designated area. (This will be customized on the app for your specific location.)
     

  • If a customer is going towards an unauthorized area or winds up in the wrong slip, they are automatically informed via a "geofencing" capability within the Prop App.  As needed, speakers can be added to waterbikes to ensure an auditory alarm is heard.
     

  • A Prop puller will remove bikes that are improperly parked at the customer's expense.  They will be automatically charged on their credit card per the terms and conditions of the rental agreement.
     

  • Prop also offers a concierge service where the bikes are delivered to a specific location for birthday parties, holiday events, etc.
     

  • If a homeowner wants to hold a waterbike overnight to use it in the morning, that can be arranged via their Prop App.
     

  • If you have an exercise spa and customers desire to exercise on the bikes, that can be arranged.
     

  • When signing up, the customer will take a short state exam for a boat license we will cover the cost by giving them their first for free.
     

  • There will be a tutorial on how to operate the bike in a safe and correct manner.
     

  • To ensure that life jackets are always aboard the watercraft, they will have proximity-based sensors embedded in them, which will be linked to the water bike's GPS system.  Marina managers will be able to locate waterbikes and life jackets as needed, and customers will be automatically charged for missing life jackets (or other equipment) on their credit card per the terms and conditions of the rental agreement.
     

  • Much more to come!
