Best-Selling Kayaks

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:

Durable & Reliable

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. To some people, it might seem crazy to take an inflatable kayak on a big trip like that.  And yet, I have had several customers take on some amazing adventures in their inflatable kayaks…

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

Kayaking at Lakeside Camping Ground

“I purchased the Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak as a joint Christmas present for my partner and I. It’s been easy to set up and the pumping isn’t too bad given its size. Both my partner (6’1″), and I find it comfortable and spacious in solo or tandem mode.”

QuickDraw Deck Bag

“We purchased our AdvancedFrame Sport Kayaks 6 weeks ago and have been out in them 5 times. Both kayaks fit in the back of our car, are easy to lift & carry (even easier when inflated) & are not a problem to store. I have no hesitation in recommending these kayaks to anyone who is looking for a lighter kayak, in our opinion it performs like the best of the hard shell kayaks we have used.”

Kayaking on the Noosa River

“The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is great and works well with the dog. Best option is to have her sit at the front.”

Kayaking on the Waiwera River

“The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak was on sale 30% off here in NZ just before Christmas so we got that for myself and husband (not a regular paddler). We went on our first outing yesterday and had a great time.”

Kayaking at Geographe Bay

“The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is a great product. Robust, stable, reasonable pace, easy to steer, tracks well and your furry friend can go with you. Love it!”

Kayaking at Sydney Harbour

“Dear Emily, love the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak! It is awesome. Thanks for your tips on estimating pressure within the kayak chambers – I probably under filled the main chamber a bit, but the drop stitch floor was spot on.”

Kayaking at Lake Buffalo

“I am absolutely thrilled with my  AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak and the outstanding advice and support I received from Emily when making the decision about which model kayak would suit me and my needs best. I love using the kayak and the best thing is that I can take it anywhere.”

Our Advanced Elements Experience

“We’ve had rigid kayaks before and they were good. I can’t bag them because they did the job but the whole chucking them on the roof, taking them off the roof was starting to get painful.I spoke to a friend who recommended I look at an inflatable kayak and at first I was sceptical so I researched, researched and researched some more.”

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.
