Tell me the Truth ... are Inflatable Kayaks any Good?

Inflatable kayaks cop a lot of flak and quite frankly, I’m sick of it.

Because, like everything in life, you get what you pay for.

The Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks are NOT the cheapest on the market, but they ARE the best.

Here’s why they are worth every penny:

Oz Inflatable Kayaks - Durable and Reliable

Imagine you’re on a multi-day kayak expedition in the middle of nowhere. You really can’t afford for something to go wrong.

Oz Inflatable Kayaks - Stable and Easy to Paddle

This is the second biggest concern people have, after durability – are inflatable kayaks any good when it comes to actually paddling them?

Most people that call me have not had a huge amount of kayaking experience. So it is not okay to sell them a kayak that goes in circles and tips them out…

Here's What Our Customers Have to Say

Review of the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak on our Alaskan Adventure

In this detailed customer review of the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite kayak, find out how the kayaks performed on a multi-day kayak expedition through the Brookes Range in Alaska.

The Best Just got Better

“I have long argued in my books and blog that the Advanced Elements double kayak is the near-perfect yacht tender and a fantastic alternative to the traditional dinghy/outboard combo. Easy to rig up, easy to drag on to the side deck at night, huge carrying capacity (we had two avocado trees in it once) and […]

Kayaking fun without needing to buy a new car

“I’ve wanted a kayak for years but could never justify a new car or the hassle of roof racks that I would need to transport a regular hard shell kayak. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t discover this earlier. I’ve been super happy with with my advanced elements convertible and it’s certainly a massive improvement […]

First time I Used It – Couldn’t Be Easier!

“We took the Kayak on a road trip and found a lovely lake to try it out for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy and quickly I inflated it and we were on the water within minutes of unpacking it. The kayak is made of a high quality and durable material […]

Love Our New Kayaks

“Bought ourselves two Advanced Frame Sport Inflatable Kayaks for Xmas and are so pleased we did. We live on Bribie Island and the kayaks are perfect for exploring Pumicestone Passage – and pulling in for a coffee stop along the way (see photo). The kayaks track really well and at 11.5 kgs are light enough for […]

Fantastic Service

“Great assistance to choose the appropriate kayaks for our needs and after sales support with any questions happily and promptly responded to.” – Ian   The Beginners Choice Kayak Package was ideal for Ian, but it might not be the right fit for you.

Great Kayaks

“Bought two Land Ahoy packages for Xmas and we have not been let down. The Kayaks are a breeze to set up, 5 mins max from taking out of the car to fully inflated and ready to go. They track well in the water and are really enjoyable and easy to use. What has been […]

Looking forward to my next outing

“Pumped up and ready to launch on the Murray River in SA in about 30 minutes. Went out in the backwaters and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxation and ease of movement through the water. Drop stitch floor was easy to install and the Kayak cart made it a breeze to get from campsite to waters edge. […]

Excellent Advice and Excellent Product

“Just wanted to say thank you for your excellent advice and excellent product. Just got back from a trial run with our new kayaks and we love them!! They are so comfy and easy to set up and pack up. Very glad we made the investment.“ – Ben and Steph   The Advancedframe Convertible Inflatable […]

Advanced Elements - The Best Inflatables on the Market!

Advanced Elements Inflatables

“What other brands do you stock?”

This is a very common question I get and people are always curious about my decision to stick with just one brand. I only stock Advanced Elements.

Why do I only stock Advanced Elements inflatables?

Basically, I don’t want to deal with returns.

That’s the truth.

With the Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks and inflatable SUPs, I might sell less than the cheap brands, but I can sleep well at night.

I know, in my heart of hearts, that I am selling the best inflatables on the market.

So What Makes Advanced Elements the Best?

They love paddling. Seriously, Advanced Elements is made up of a bunch of guys in the USA who love paddling and designing watercraft.

Sounds obvious that they would love paddling, but the cheap inflatable kayaks and SUPs are designed in factories by people who have no interest or understanding of paddling.

This means that Advanced Elements TEST and REFINE their prototypes.

Advanced Elements isn’t some giant corporation interested in cashing in on a fad. They’ve been around for a long time and take pride in creating quality inflatables.

They stand behind their 12 month manufacturer’s warranty with integrity and compassion.

They know that there are multiple elements to creating a great inflatable watercraft:

  • Durability
  • Performance on the water
  • Comfort
  • Speed of set up and pack away
  • Weight and portability
  • Versatility

And they strive for excellence in ALL those areas.
