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!

Tracks beautifully and easy to paddle

I purchased the Advanced Elements Advanced Frame Elite Convertible as a joint Christmas present for my partner and I. So far we've had it out both at the beach and on the Murray. 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. It even fits easily back into its bag with all the accessories AND the addition of a pump to make the kit complete. The only change I'd make would be to add a foot rest for the front/solo paddler similar to what the rear paddler has. Emily was very helpful with a follow up call when she realised I'd made an error in my order. I'd highly recommend both the kayak and Oz Inflatables.


Kayaking at Waiwera River

Hi Emily Last time I forgot to congratulate you on your very instructive videos on YouTube. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain everything. Since October I purchased and used the AdvancedFrame Kayak and I adore it. 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. I started with a cheap paddle and soon realised a good quality one would make a difference so I got the PackLite 4-Part Kayak Paddle (the only paddle available here) but I think I like a larger blade. So, I went back to your videos and found the one on paddles. Thanks for all the good explanations. I might just wait for my next trip to Oz and order the Touring 4-Part Kayak Paddle from you. Here are a few photos from our double kayaking outing on 31 Dec (Waiwera River, 35 km NE Auckland).

Dog friendly kayak

This is a great product. Robust, stable, reasonable pace, easy to steer, tracks well and your furry friend can go with you. Love it!


Love The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak

Dear Emily, love the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak! It is awesome. Opened it on Xmas and used it for the first time on Boxing Day. We parked out the front of the Woollahra boat club and then inflated the kayak and put it in on their boat ramp. A very quiet Sunday morning and I got a park around 10m from the boat ramp! Great spot and no sand! The water was calm and glassy. It was a magical morning. 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.

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 looked at an inflatable kayak and at first I was sceptical so I researched, researched and researched some more. Eventually we landed on the Advanced Elements Convertible Elite tandem kayak. Delivery was ridiculously quick from over east to the west. Communications with Emily was pure efficiency. But what about the kayak itself ? I could go on and get all artistic but that would eat into my time in the thing. It’s wonderful. Best kayak I’ve ever owned, it’s that simple. It unpacks in no no time at all , goes up in 10 minutes, holds a stack of gear, keeps a grin on my face for as long as I’m sat in in and when the time eventually comes it deflated in the same time as it takes to set up. It even fits back into its bag without too much pushing and pulling ;-) The oars I bought were the 4 part pack paddle and again, these are simplicity themselves and do an admirable job. Bottom line - buy yourself one, you won’t be disappointed .
