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 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.”

Why Didn’t I Do This Years Ago!

“I absolutely love my kayak I have taken it out on the river nearby quite a few morning before sunrise (even in winter!). It is super quick to inflate and light enough for me to pick up and carry to the water with one hand.”

GE2 Electric Pump – Must Have For Inflatable Owners

“This is a great product. I have used the GE2 Electric Pump a few times now and love the result.”

Wonderful Service, Wonderful Product

“I have taken the AdvancedFrame Kayak out several times in flat and rough conditions. It handles well with direction and speed. It is comfortable with the inflatable mat and seat although it took me a bit to adjust the seat to fit.”

The Kayak We Chose Is Excellent And Very Good Quality

“The AdvancedFrame Kayak we chose is excellent and very good quality, all delivered in good time. Highly recommend.”

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 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.”

Great Kayak

“The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak is easy to inflate and versatile for me to go it alone with two dogs or go out on the water with someone else.”

Loving My Kayak

“Absolutely loving my AdvancedFrame Kayak. Takes approximately 10mins from getting it out of the car to being on the water.”

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 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.”

Quick To Inflate and Great Fun

“Overall experience – terrific! Easy to inflate and took <10 minutes on our second attempt, a bit longer on the first as we were reading the instruction manual."

Easy To Setup & Very Stable

“Our AdvancedFrame Kayaks arrived last week and we hit the water yesterday. They are excellent quality, stable and glide through the water.”

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

Kayaking at Penguin Island

“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.”

Love My Kayak

“On the recommendation from a friend, I have bought the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak. I am loving it. It is easy to transport, quick to get on the water and so comfortable.”

“I don’t think I’ve read a bad review about this kayak (AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak) and after spending a couple hours paddling around in it, I can see why.”

“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 Bilarong Reserve

“The AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak is extremely well thought out and put together. Every aspect seems to have been catered for.”

Kayaking Easy

“10 mins to set up, 10 minutes to get back into the car. The AdvancedFrame Kayak is very stable, under normal condition on flat water you get no water inside.”

Better Than I Expected!

“My AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak arrived 2 days after I placed the order, which was amazing. Tried it out yesterday and it was even better than I’d expected.”

Great Product, Great Price & Great Service

“Solved my problem of having to juggle to squeeze my AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak into the standard bag. My new bag is well made and allows me to use as a backpack so will be a lot easier to transport.”

Kayaking at Coila Lake

“Buying my fabulous AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak has given me freedom and independence. No more stressing about moving, loading, carrying or waiting for someone to help me.”

“Emily’s support in purchasing this AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak was excellent. Informative and helpful on all counts.”

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.”

Amazing Customer Service

“The AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak, from the Family Fun Kayak Package we ordered, is amazing and the customer service is exceptional. Emily answered all our questions and made the process enjoyable. Would highly recommend this company!”

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.”

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.”

We Love Our AdvancedFrame Sport Kayaks

“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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

Great Knowledge And Well-Supported Purchase Process

“Hi Emily! Just to say that we got out in the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak now and enjoying it a lot. I had a trip back to the UK that delayed things. Really quick and easy to get ready and fast on the water. I haven’t fitted the rudder yet but will try soon. We have entered the bridge to beach paddle in Feb so a challenge lies ahead.   Photos of the canoe were taken on the beach at the Q station, our first expedition. Thanks again for your help and efficiency!”

So Easy To Carry The Boat To The Water

“Initial reaction: So easy to carry the boat to the water. The boat has excellent primary stability. Very secure feeling sitting in it. The main chambers really provide the boat with a solid feel. Paddling the boat tracked straight. No skeg or rudder.”

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…

AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak

“Straight up, this AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak was brilliant. We have never kayaked and wanted to try the experience and it was so much fun and a good exercise. To be able to take the dog with us was tremendous, she had a ball, no issues at all.”

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.”

Advancedframe Convertible Elite Inflatable Kayak – Easy to Manage

“I bought the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak earlier this year while recovering from broken ribs thinking it would be weeks before I could use it. As it turned out, I soon realised it was easy to load and unload from my Subaru Forester and I could manage it even with sore ribs so, as we […]

Outstanding Customer Service And Product

“The website is great and Emily’s customer service is outstanding. I think Emily is a better salesperson online with her advice and willingness to answer all of my questions – more than I’ve experienced in a shop in a long time.  Emily uses online capabilities to bring a very customer centred focus that is specific […]

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.

Bought 2 – Expedition & Standard Advanced Frame

“We purchased 2 Kayaks from Emily, the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Inflatable Kayak, and the AdvancedFrame Kayak. I am 6ft5 so I needed the extra legroom offered by the Expedition Elite, however my partner fits perfectly into the standard Advanced Frame model. I am very glad I went for the Expedition Elite, I can fit into the […]

AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

“As a complete beginner I had absolutely no idea of where to start when I filled in the online questionnaire. Today at lunchtime my AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak arrived and by the afternoon I was out on the water. I can’t believe it and I am so thrilled. I love the kayak and am so excited […]

Dog Lovers Package

“Easy and fast to set up. After initially wanting to swim for shore, the dogs settled and had a great first paddle. Loved that the package included everything needed and more. Our picture was taken at Walker’s Point in the Burrum River“ – Brett The Dog Lovers Kayak Package was ideal for Brett, but it might not […]

Great Fun With The AdvancedFrame Kayaks!

“I recently bought two of the AdvancedFrame Kayaks and my wife and I have been out on them almost every weekend! These kayaks exceeded my expectations and we have had a terrific time in both enclosed waters and in the ocean. They have taken us to waterways in Sydney that I would never have thought […]

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. “

Back On The Water… In The Convertible Elite

“Having previously canoed in a fibreglass ‘Canadian’ style canoe that just got too heavy to lug around when travelling, it was a pleasure to be able to get back on the water in our new AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Inflatable Kayak. No more heavy lifting! We had no problems with getting on the water… probably took us […]

Advanced Elements Elite Double x 2

“Recently purchased two AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Inflatable Kayaks from Emily. This was after months of research considering how to balance convenience, performance and stability. We live in Sydney northern beaches and have access to a range of waterways from rivers and lakes to the ocean. I have experience in paddling, less so my wife and we have […]

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 RapidUp Kayak Sail works very well, does not overwhelm the kayak and is easy to control. The prevailing winds plus your Sail will blow me back from The Inlet. The picture was taken at the Murray River North Yunderup WA” – Brian The RapidUp Kayak Sail was ideal for Brian, but it might not be the […]

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 […]

A Realistic Alternative

“Having now a few months and several outings with the AdvancedFrame Inflatable Kayak, once you’re out on the water, I don’t believe that there’s a lot of difference in speed or tracking ability between the AF models and more conventional plastic sit-in recreational kayaks, particularly once you install the backbone, which I highly recommend. Performance […]

Everything that you said about the Advancedframe Sport Inflatable Kayak is true

“Emily, Everything that you said about the Advancedframe Sport Inflatable Kayak is true. As a 65 year old grandma I can fit the deflated kayak into the back of my X-trail quickly, get to my location and easily carry it 20 metres to the shoreline. Minutes later I am away and paddling on Brisbane Waters, […]

Service and kayak first class

“Experience with Emily was great from start to finish. Had a little bump with delivery company but all was resolved promptly and well communicated. The kayak has been fantastic and I’ve used it about 10 times already since getting it. So far I’ve done ennogerra reservoir, twin waters, lake currimundi, belongil creek and its been […]

Cruising In Comfort Package Opened Up A Whole New World For Us

“This package is excellent! You know when you’re camped on a river and you think, “I wonder what’s around that bend?” Well, now we can find out for ourselves. So easy to inflate, and to pack away. It tracks straight and cuts through the water beautifully. We love it!” – ANDREW AND PETA The Cruising […]

Brilliant service, excellent Flying Solo bundle

“Thanks to the Flying Solo bundle coming with the super-efficient dual-action pump, I had the AdvancedFrame inflated for the very first time in under 5 minutes and was out on the water immediately – it’s that easy to set up. I was paddling on a tidal river and coastal waters and found the experience to […]

Advancedframe Convertible Inflatable Kayak

“I used this kayak on the Noosa River several times during my recent stay at Noosa River Caravan Park. I used it for general kayaking upstream and downstream and also for fishing. The kayak was very stable and reasonably easy to paddle with current and against current. It retained its line well with two paddlers, […]

Satisfied customer

“Emily returned my enquiry promptly and really knew her stuff. Helping me with the product that suited my needs.” – Leanne The Advancedframe Convertible Inflatable Kayak was ideal for Leanne, but it might not be the right fit for you.

Advancedframe inflatable kayak

I researched long and hard before buying this kayak – and all the positive reviews and comments have been well and truly proven by my experience. Easy and surprisingly quick to set up, wonderfully comfortable and stable on the water, and even quicker to pack away after the paddle – this is truly an excellent […]

AirFusion Elite Inflatable Kayak

AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak in South America

“Hi Emily, Earlier this year I bought an AdvancedFrame Convertible kayak from you. As planed we are now in South America in a 4×4 camper (Earth Cruiser) built in Queensland. Our kayak has been out of its locker a few times now. I am sending some photos of two places we have used the Kayak. […]

I am very impressed with the overall quality of the Speed Demon package

“Hi Emily. I have found my speed demon package very good. The kayak tracks beautifully. I am very pleased with it. It is a comfortable seat to sit and paddle. I chose an inflatable package as I am travelling in a motorhome and it suited those needs. It is compact to store  under the bed compartment. I […]

Thank You!

Hi Emily, well I am now a fit person!  We did 4 hours of sightseeing paddling over giant stingrays, loads of fish and a dolphin shot past us recently on the Wagonga Inlet at Narooma.  Then we paddled to lunch at the gorgeous Quarterdeck restaurant where the owner remarked that we were ‘living the dream’ […]

Very comfortable and quick to get in the water

After our second trip out John again said how comfortable it was. He has back trouble and our previous kayaks were not comfortable for him. We are both pleased with the time it takes to get into the water – overall much less time and less bother than putting the 2 plastic kayaks on the […]

What’s the Secret?

How did we get so many great inflatable kayak reviews?

Easy – by ensuring our customers get the right kayak.

If you want to know how to choose a kayak, start with our comprehensive list of kayak buying guides.

Click HERE to get access to our kayak buying guides

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!
