How to Avoid Buying a Dodgy Inflatable Kayak


The 7 Key Features you MUST check before buying an inflatable kayak

Just a quick email to say thank you for your professional recommendations to assist me in choosing the best inflatable kayak for my needs.

I have had the kayak out on beautiful Port Stephens waters a couple of times now and it is everything I hoped it would be. Being a novice I find the craft to be very stable allowing me to concentrate on the correct paddling style.

The kayak fits my 6 foot 3 inch frame perfectly and its ease of setup and take down makes this a winner for my needs.

Here’s why you need this checklist:

  • Your safety is at risk – don’t forget that when you go kayaking, you are effectively going boating. Would you go out in a dodgy boat???
  • Some big chain stores sell tens of thousands of products. The staff don’t have the product knowledge to guide you through a purchase – it is up to you to do your research.
  • Kayaking should be FUN! Not hard work and frustrating.
  • Spend a few hours in a dodgy inflatable kayak and you will understand the importance of comfort for your bum and support for your back.
  • You get what you pay for – like so many things in life, it is worth paying a bit more to check off all 7 items on the checklist. If you get a cheap inflatable kayak, you may as well set your money on fire, because you won’t end up using it.

About Oz Inflatable Kayaks

Inflatable Kayak Seaworld Lagoon Emily

Hi! My name’s Emily.

I started Oz Inflatable Kayaks over a decade ago because I wanted a lightweight, high quality inflatable kayak, and I wanted to be able to buy it in Australia, from an Australian company.

I discovered the Advanced Elements brand and was absolutely amazed by their kayaks!

Nowadays, I have 9 inflatable kayaks of my own. I love helping customers choose the right kayak, so that they can have a wonderful paddling experience.

Feeling overwhelmed?

If you’re buying a kayak but you’re not sure which model is right for you, DON’T GUESS!

I have over 10 years experience selling these kayaks and I would be delighted to help you.

In fact, I do personalised kayak recommendations all the time for people.
