Steve Kipp, the owner of WSC, originally designed the watercycle in 1987. His research into human powered water vehicles was delayed by 3 wonderful children and a career in the laser printer industry. After selling his laser printer business in 2012, Steve picked up and started where he left off.
To perfect the cycle he spent 3 more years in R & D.
Our current model is a product of 18 prototypes with 250 hours of testing on flat water and an additional 60 hours in 3’-6’ waves. This rigorous testing, along with premium components has produced a durable vehicle that will last for years.
