Great kayak

Easy to inflate and versatile for me to go it alone with two dogs or go out on the water with someone else. Being a tandem, it’s easier to have someone else to help lug it in and out of the car, but excellent quality and service.

Great kayak!

Easy to inflate, deflate and pack up. We can get it on the water in about 15 minutes. Very stable in the water and lots of room for two paddlers. Took it on a recent trip to Katarapko Creek and it was perfect. Emily's support in purchasing this Kayak was excellent. Informative and helpful on all counts.

New Advanced Frame Convertible Kayak

Excellent, we had our maiden voyage last weekend @ Caloundra & were really impressed with the kayak. It was comfortable, tracked beautifully, & was effortless to paddle. The wind got up quite strongly while we were out on the water but it still cut really well through the water while battling the tide & wind. We are extremely happy with our choice, thanks to Emily's informative advice.

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).

Paddle the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Solo or Tandem:

AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak leg room

Unlike most tandem kayaks, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak has plenty of leg room for BOTH paddlers, which means less arguments!

Most kayaks over 4m are classed as 3-seaters, but Advanced Elements have kept this one as a spacious tandem kayak.

The solo seating position means you are perfectly balanced in the kayak – no drag and no wag.

Changing between tandem and solo is simply a matter of where you clip the seats in – super easy!


AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak AE1007-E Advanced Elements

At 4.6m, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite is one of the longest, and therefore fastest inflatable kayaks on the market.

It also has a capacity of 249kg, so you can really load it up with gear.

With the inflatable lumbar cushion in the seat supporting your back, you can paddle for hours.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite has a low centre of gravity and a flat hull for effortless stability. This saves your strength and allows you to relax and enjoy the ride.

The optional Advanced Elements Double Deck Conversion and Single Deck Conversion allow you to stay dry with the inflatable coaming and optional skirt.

Spray Skirt Advanced Elements

The spray skirt is great news for those adventurous souls who want to paddle the open ocean.

It is also a great accessory for paddling in winter.

Quality Design & Manufacturing

Advanced Elements have designed the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite to be wonderfully durable and safe.

With multiple air chambers, multiple layers covering the main chambers and the extra-tough PVC tarpaulin on the hull, you don’t really have to worry about punctures.

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!
