Check out the latest inflatable kayak adventures from us and our awesome customers.

Kayaking at Emerald Lakes, Carrara

“Great – I love it – I did a lot of research to decide on the best kayak and I couldn’t be happier. The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is so easy to set up and pack down.”

Kayaking at Nauru

“To say I LOVE it would be an understatement. It is simply awesome, I can not believe how stable it is and how well it tracks through the water and is really reactive.”

Kayaking at Broadbeach Waters

I love kayaking at Broadbeach Waters on the Gold Coast – it’s such a variety of sights in such a small area! I launched at the boat ramp that is just across the river from the Exhibition Centre. It has free parking for up to 3 hours (I think), and an easy boat ramp next […]

Kayaking at Lake Kurwongbah

“The AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak is easy to set up. It’s really really stable and tracks well. Great streamlined design and very bright and easily seen by other water craft including powered.”

Kayaking on Lake Parramatta

“This company deserves nothing short of 5 stars. The kayak we bought is AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak. It is fantastic.”

Kayaking on Moobool Creek, Pottsville

“We love our AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak, very stable, comfortable and easy to paddle with plenty of room. The Touring 4-Part Kayak Paddle & PackLite 4-Part Kayak Paddle are both well-balanced. The Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge works well and easy to read the pressure gauge”

Kayaking on the Hacking River

“Everything promised, this AdvancedFrame Kayak delivered in spades. Efficient – easy to paddle for long periods of time, cuts through calm and choppy water with ease.”

Kayaking on the Murray River at Moama

“I love the AdvancedFrame Kayak! Easy to transport, pump up and carry to the water and to get in. Thank you for the excellent customer service.”

Kayaking at Big Lagoon in Francois Peron National Park

“The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak performed beautifully – even on a 7km paddle back into a 20kt headwind!”

Kayaking on the Mackenzie River at Bedford Weir

“Emily is dedicated to getting you into the right kayak based on who you are and what you want to do with your Kayak and not just sell you what she is making the best profit on or what the manufacture requires her to sell.”

Kayaking on Yardie Creek, WA

“For both ease of transport and what we plan to do, inflatables seemed a good option. Emily was exceptionally helpful and once we made the decision to purchase, our StraitEdge Inflatable Kayak was on the way the next day.”

Kayaking at Port Hacking

“I really like the firm drop stitch floor which is great for our doggo’s claws. The kayak feels very sturdy and stable. Highly recommended”

Kayaking on the Canning River at Shelley Beach

“As an older, not so strong female the kayak is a bit heavier and more awkward to carry than I expected but easy to pump up with the Bellows Foot Pump. On the water it is easy to paddle and very stable and comfortable.”

Kayaking on Port Phillip Bay

“I finally got the chance to take my AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak out yesterday on Port Phillip Bay. As mentioned by many other reviewers, great customer service and attention to my concerns and to making sure I made the right choice for my needs.”

Kayaking at Paradise Waters (Surfers Paradise)

  We decided to take the kids out for some sunshine and fresh air in our AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite family kayak. We launched from Yacht St, Southport, because you can park very close to the beach there. We paddled through the canals of Paradise waters and stopped for a snack and a swim at Paradise […]

Kayaking at Queens Beach North, Scarborough

“It is incredibly stable & I do feel very safe in it which was one thing I did have some reservations with originally. Not any more though!!”

Kayaking at Clontarf Beach

“Emily was a great help when choosing a kayak. The individualised video she created for me really assisted in the selection process.”

Kayaking at Bonnet Bay

“Never paddled such a comfortable AdvancedFrame Kayak. Really easy and quick set up and pull down. Great to be back out on the water again. One super happy customer!!!”

Kayaking at Sylvan Beach

Kayaking on Clarence River

“Love how quick the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak is to set up. I am truly loving the experience, especially as nobody else is around to disturb the wildlife!”

“My first paddle and it felt so much more enjoyable than hard plastic kayaks usually available at resorts. I was totally sold.”

“The new Lumbar Seat for my AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak, that gives extra inflatable back support is very comfortable. I always have someone that is interested in my inflatable kayak where ever I go, that wants to know where they can get one.”

“I’m very happy with my AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak – great choice! It got here on Monday and I’ve been out twice already on the Swan River in the beautiful Perth winter weather.”

Kayaking at Lake Burley Griffin

“I liked the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak a lot to begin with, and the inflatable foot braces have transformed it. They’re very easy to fit as you inflate the boat, and they’re surprisingly stable in holding their position against foot pressure even when not done up very tightly.”

Kayaking at Stockton Lake

“Wow! Works a treat. The Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge pumps up my kayak so easy, I’m so impressed!”

Kayaking on Dutchmans Beach at Nelson Bay

“If you are considering the purchase of an inflatable kayak (a very convenient way to be able to enjoy waterways without having to carry on roof racks etc), I would definitely recommend talking to Emily at Oz Inflatable Kayaks.”

Kayaking at Balgowan Beach

“I was nervous at first of the sequence of which compartment of the AdvancedFrame Sport to fill first but was able to do it. Valves are good for fast inflation and deflation. All the chambers are removable for easy drying and cleaning.”

Kayaking on the Goulburn River, Eildon

“The AdvancedFrame Kayak is very easy to set-up. Paddles are remarkably straight and no lifting onto the car roof needed. I will be taking it away on our next caravan trip. It’s so easy to use. I am very happy with my kayak and the help I received from Emily.”

Kayaking on the Rocklands Reservoir

“I am very impressed with the performance of the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak.I come from a Sea Kayak and wanted something that would track well and not be blown about by the wind.”

Kayaking at Cattai Creek

“I purchased the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak as I missed kayaking with my daughter when she took her hard plastic sit-ins north to live. It’s the most comfortable kayak I’ve ever sat in and easy to paddle. I use it mainly in Cattai Creek and into the Hawkesbury River.”

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.”

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 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.”

Kayaking at Hinze Dam

“I purchased my Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak a few months ago and have been absolutely loving it! I can highly recommend this kayak to anyone who wants a high performing kayak but doesn’t have the option to store and transport a traditional kayak.”

Kayaking at Tweed Heads, NSW

“I know I left it a bit late in life to get into kayaking. Better late than never. For the first half of this year I spent most of my time at Tweed Heads helping out my sister in law, who was diagnosed with cancer. She lived across the road from the Tweed River, so it was ideal for me to go out and buy an inexpensive inflatable kayak…

Kayaking at Ewen Maddock Dam

“I appreciated being able to have my final questions/concerns answered before purchasing my kayak. Emily knows her product well, is friendly and easily accessible by phone. Payment and delivery were fast. Great service!”

Kayaking at Hindmarsh Island

“We put our AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak in at Hindmarsh Island. I haven’t done mine yet (tentative about back) but I did have a little go in Tony’s & it was fab. So comfy! It’s like sitting on a great soft lounge chair. It’s supportive of my back, very easy to paddle and getting along easily in water. Very impressed, & happy!”

Kayaking at Sportsmans Creek Near Lawrence, NSW

“We love our new kayak, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak. We can’t believe how comfortable and stable the kayak is. We have previously owned sea kayaks, but our new inflatable kayak with the hard floor is brilliant with the added bonus of being so portable. We will be kayaking a lot more now. Big thanks […]

Kayaking at Lake Conjola

“Recently used the Kayak Cart with my AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak.

Even though the kayak is easy to carry, the cart made it all much easier (especially when a hill was involved).

It is very handy if you have a bit further to walk to get to the waters edge.

Light weight and compact.

Found it quick and easy to attach and detach from the kayak.

Stowed easily on the back deck of the kayak whilst paddling.

The pictures were taken at Lake Conjola, South Coast, NSW.”

Camping and Kayaking on the Glenelg River

Heath recently shared to me via email his Glenelg River adventure together with some stunning images.
“Good afternoon Emily, we had a great trip and the AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayaks for the most part held up really well and I was very surprised about how effortless they were to paddle long distances.”

Kayaking Around Coochiemudlo Island

“We have been out in the Kayaks 4 times now, once on an inland river and the rest of the time out in the estuaries around Brisbane. Both kayaks have been fantastic, they cut through the water really well and they track very straight even when paddling hard.”

Kayaking Between Somerset Dam and Lake Wivenhoe

Our maiden voyage was kayaking between Somerset Dam and Lake Wivenhoe.

Kayaking at Millstream-Chichester National Park, WA

“The kayak, AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak,  you recommended was easily carried the 200m to the water. It was windy but the kayak tracked perfectly and we were both impressed by the kayaks performance and stability. The service from you was very speedy. “

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.

Kayaking on the Maroochy River

“Hello Emily, I trust that you are going well and business is rewarding your efforts. The attached photo isn’t particularly dramatic, but reflects another good paddle with our AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak around the mouth of the Maroochy River while holidaying at the Cotton Tree Holiday Park in March 2019; very restful.”

Kayaking on Saltwater Creek at Monterey Keys QLD

Jacob and I had a wonderful, leisurely paddle on Saltwater Creek at Monterey Keys – on the Gold Coast. I had my AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak, whereas Jacob was in one of the old Adventure kayaks. The tide had just turned and was heading in, so we went against it to start with so the paddle […]

Kayaking on Biggera Creek QLD

Jacob and I went kayaking on Biggera Creek – one of the Gold Coast’s finest waterways … lol! Actually, Biggera Creek is nice, with clear water and sandy beaches. It links into the Runaway Bay canal system, so we were able to do a loop – I LOVE finding paddling circuits in the Gold Coast […]

Camping and Kayaking on the Murrumbidgee River

Here’s some shots from my trip camping and kayaking on the Murrumbidgee River in May. It started with two daughters, six grandsons and three kayaks on Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra. Then down the river to South Australia.

Kayak Fishing on Wallis Lake at Forster Tuncurry NSW

Tom recently sent through some awesome pictures of the Angler Pro inflatable fishing kayak. He is kayak fishing on Wallis Lake at Forster Tuncurry. Funnily enough, Tom already had a hard-shell fishing kayak. BUT … he never used it. The thought of having to haul it on and off the roof racks and worrying about […]

Kayaking on Yardie Creek in Cape Range National Park, WA

Dennis and Lee (famous from the Hamersley Inlet post) are further north now, and recently went kayaking on Yardie Creek in Cape Range National Park, WA. “A fabulous paddle on calm water and late in the afternoon we saw many Black Flanked Rock Wallabies. Other people pay to do a short boat cruise up the […]

Kayaking with a Dog on the Brisbane River

John and Tania wanted to go kayaking on the Brisbane River with their dog, Ellie (a springer spaniel). They had just moved into a unit at Hamilton with a nice beach. Perfect! Well, almost …. What’s the problem with units? Space. They had an allocated car space in the shared garage, but they needed that […]

Kayaking on Hamersley Inlet in Fitzgerald River National Park WA

Dennis and his wife, Lee, love travelling around WA in their 4WD and off-road caravan. When they arrived at the Stunning Ningaloo Coast, they saw a couple kayaking on Ningaloo Reef and thought “wow, wouldn’t it be wonderful to be out on the water … but what a hassle to get roof racks and transport […]

Kayak Camping on the Shoalhaven River NSW

Mark was kind enough to share the details of his awesome trip kayak camping on the Shoalhaven river:

We drove to BENDEELA RECREATION AREA (free campsite) on Thursday night after work arriving at 9 pm. Pitched the tent and went to sleep.

Kayaking on the Murray and Darling Rivers near Mildura VIC

Late last year I sold the awesome StraitEdge Angler PRO fishing kayak to Tim. But this post is not about Tim. It’s about Tim’s wife and her AdvancedFrame Sport kayak. Tim was pretty excited about getting a good quality inflatable fishing kayak and we spent a while talking about it on the phone. Then, almost […]

Kayaking on Cudgen Creek at Kingscliff NSW

It’s been a long time since I last went for a paddle (had a baby recently), so I was very excited to go kayaking on Cudgen Creek at Kingscliff last week. Took my dad – he’s doing pretty well for a 73 year old. Doesn’t look a day over 71! I got mum and dad […]

Kayaking on the Nepean River Near Camden NSW

This picture is from Holly and her dog, Blue. They are kayaking on the Nepean River near Camden, NSW. We have a few different dog friendly kayaks for customers who want to take their dogs paddling. Apparently, the dogs love it! Usually, I recommend the AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak because it is so spacious and stable […]

Kayaking at Ellendale Pool near Geraldton WA

This stunning picture is from Leanne who went kayaking at Ellendale Pool near Geraldton WA. If you squint, you can see her cruising along in the AdvancedFrame inflatable kayak (the little red line at the bottom of the picture).   Geraldton is a town on the coast of Western Australia. It’s beautiful beaches and bays […]

Kayaking on Currumbin Creek

On this glorious Sunday, we launched the inflatable kayaks next to the swimming area on the south side of Currumbin Creek. This close to the ocean, the sand is white and the water is crystal clear blue.  Absolutely stunning. I was astonished at the number of people out having fun on kayaks and stand up […]

Kayaking With Cows on Lake Maroon

On the way home from a camping trip, we stopped at Lake Maroon (QLD) for a paddle in our inflatable kayaks. Yes, we managed to fit all our camping gear plus 2 kayaks into a Corolla hatch… Access was easy – there is a boat ramp in good condition with plenty of parking available. The […]

Kayaking on the Clarence River at Yamba NSW

We had a STUNNING weekend of paddling at Yamba. Wow. I recently got myself an AirFusion Elite inflatable kayak, which is my new love … sorry Jacob! It cuts through chop like a hot knife through butter… not that Yamba had much chop going on. Look how narrow and sleek it is … sigh… Jacob took […]

Kayaking on the Clarence River at Yamba NSW

Kayaking at Emerald Lakes on the Gold Coast, QLD

Jacob and I went kayaking at Emerald Lakes on the Gold Coast. Although it was a cloudy day, there was no wind so the water was beautifully calm – perfect for kayaking! I was paddling the AdvancedFrame Sport inflatable kayak and Jacob was paddling the AdvancedFrame Expedition inflatable kayak. We love these two kayaks because they are so quick […]

Kayaking on the Mighty Albert River QLD

On Sunday, we joined a large group of people celebrating World Rivers Day by kayaking down the mighty Albert River. Okay, mighty is a stretch, I know …. but it was very beautiful. I was in the super lightweight Packlite inflatable kayak: Which is also great for back bends: And product model poses, as it […]

Kayaking on Cascade Gardens to Mermaid Waters QLD

We launched our inflatable kayaks at the perilous Cascade Gardens unofficial boat ramp. Although the launch is scary with oysters on rocks, it is such a beautiful spot with all the tall trees hanging over the river – a lovely area to just float. Coming around the corner, the buildings at Broadbeach came into view […]

Kayaking on the Canals of Broadbeach Waters

Did a one way kayak (with the tide of course) from a friend’s place on Monaco street, through to Cascade Gardens. Had a bit of slip and slide trying to carry my Advanced Frame Inflatable Kayak down my friends very steep and very green boat ramp, but I was very soon on my way. Randomly, […]

Monterey Keys Saltwater Creek

Although clouds were threatening, the air was so calm, I couldn’t resist a quick early paddle. We put the inflatable kayaks into Saltwater Creek at the end of Condamine Cres, River Downs.  River Downs Park has a boat ramp and some car parking. Jacob had his Adventure kayak (minus the seat which was accidently left at home) […]

The Chevron Island and Paradise Waters Loop

Took Jacob out for his first spin on the old Advanced Frame Inflatable Kayak today, and boy was he blown away. After his unpleasant experience (back pain) on the hard shell kayak in Halong Bay, he thought the Advanced Frame Inflatable Kayak was luxuriously comfortable. We put the kayaks in at Austin Gilchrist Park in Chevron Island – there […]

What’s the Secret?

Why do we have so many customers having such great adventures???

Easy – by ensuring our customers get the right kayak.

Unfortunately, inflatable kayak reviews can be misleading…

It’s not that people are dishonest – far from it.  Our customers genuinely LOVE their inflatable kayaks!

The problem with reviews is that they can lead you to thinking you need something you don’t.

For example, maybe you are a beginner and you’re looking at a bunch of online reviews for the AirFusion EVO. This is our fastest kayak, but it is not our stablest. Experienced kayakers don’t really care about stability, they are interested in speed. So the kayak will have heaps of excellent reviews because it is super-fast.


If you purchased the AirFusion EVO because of all those great reviews from experienced kayakers, you would be making a mistake. As a beginner, you need to start with something more stable, such as the AdvancedFrame.

So what good are inflatable kayak reviews???

First, you need to get some advice on which kayaks are right for you. THEN, you can look at the reviews to help make a decision.

Getting advice is not a big deal – we do it all the time. Here are the factors we consider when helping you choose a kayak:

  • Your size – both length and weight
  • Your strength and physical limitations
  • The kind of water you will be paddling in – eg open ocean vs whitewater
  • How long your paddling trips will be
  • Your paddling experience
  • Anything else you want to tell me!
