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…

Stable & Easy to Paddle

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…

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 […]

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

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 […]

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.

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.
