AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak


Out of stock

If you want a kayak that is BOTH amazing to paddle AND lightweight and easy to handle, the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak has it all!

This popular kayak goes straight and fast like the regular AdvancedFrame, but is lighter for handling to and from the water, and has a wider cockpit for easy entry and exit.

It is comfortable and fast enough for long paddles, but also very quick to set up if you just want a little exercise.

Sport Kayak

I was nervous at first of the sequence of which compartment 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. Once a central seating position is established the kayak is easy to man over but I wish the paddle was longer.

Advancedframe Sport Kayak

I purchased the Advancedframe Sport Kayak as I missed kayaking with my daughter when she took her hard plastic sit ins north to live. She did most of the heavy work back then like loading and unloading them into the trailer. They were quite heavy and cumbersome. I spoke with Emily and she asked questions about my fitness and age and actually suggested the one I was looking at, the Advancedframe Sport Kayak. I'm in my 60's, far from fit, and I can manage to carry it to the waters edge, inflate, pack it with my little stove and esky to make a cuppa at my destination and off I go, and it fits in my car! No more trailer for me. 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. I love all the different birds, water dragons and also the peace and quiet. It takes me 10 minutes to inflate and be on my way, but at my age, I'm not trying to break Emily's record of under 5 minutes 😂 I can't recommend this kayak higher nor Emily who is the most helpful person I've come across, and I honestly mean that. Thanks again Emily.

Advanced Element Sport

I am very impressed with the performance of the sport model. I come from a Sea Kayak and wanted something that would track well and not be blown about by the wind. I needed a kayak that would fit into my mobile home so conventional kayaks were out. I have so far paddled against a strong tide and was impressed with the speed I maintained. Paddling creeks and rivers and ease of getting the kayak in and out of my vehicle this is a perfect solution for me.

We love our Advanced Frame Sport Kayaks

We purchased our kayaks 6 weeks ago and have been out in them 5 times. In that time we’ve kayaked on Sydney Harbour (Rodd Point and North Head to Manly), Pittwater, Lake Macquarie and Lake Narrabeen. The kayaks are even better than we expected, they are stable & track well, even in strong winds or a swell. We chose these kayaks because they are so light (12kgs) and as I am much heavier than my partner & want to take a dog with me at times, I also purchased the drop stitch floor. It does the job perfectly & fits easily in the kayak when packed. We did a lot of research before purchasing these kayaks and also found Emily’s personalised advice extremely helpful. The kayaks are easy & quick to inflate although we did end up purchasing the electric pump as we both have some joint issues. They pack back into their bags with ease, this really surprised me, we store the 4 piece paddle, foot rest & seat in the bag as well. We use a separate bag for the life vests and pump. 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.

So glad I bought this kayak - it is awesome!

I am absolutely thrilled with my AF 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. Yesterday I drove to Lake Buffalo with two other passengers in my Kia Cerrato and still had plenty of room for the kayak, my gear and a large esky. The kayak is so stable and easy to manoeuvre on the water and I love it when Rueben ( my dog) comes along for a paddle. I would definitely recommend talking to Emily about this product - I think you will love it too.

Here's Why I Paddle the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak:

For me, it’s the perfect combination of quick and easy set up AND a delightful paddling experience.

What makes it so good?

  • Super quick set up
  • Ultra lightweight
  • Delightful to paddle
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to get in and out of
  • Durable

Who is the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak For?

I sell this particular inflatable kayak a LOT to people who don’t want to lift a heavy kayak, but don’t want to compromise on durability and paddling performance.

It’s ideal for women, seniors and children, but the 113kg capacity means I can still sell it to big blokes who want a super-quick set up and like the look of the easy-access wide open cockpit!

Love a Quick Set Up?

Me too.

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak goes from in the bag to on the water in 4 minutes and 10 seconds.

Hi Emily, The Sport arrived a few days ago and is great, I have tested it out and it is light enough for me to handle and only takes a few minutes to inflate and be on the water.


Lightweight for Easy Handling

AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak Bag AE1007

Packs up into a bag about the size of a small suitcase and weighs only 11.5kg…

Easy to travel with, easy to store and (most importantly), easy to carry down to the water.

Wide Open Cockpit

The wide open cockpit allows you to take a dog or a small child with you.

Plus, it’s easier to get in and out of for those of us who are not super flexible…

Managed to get my girl Blue to settle on the kayak and she eventually learnt to stay still and loved it 🙂

Angela in the AdvancedFrame Sport inflatable kayak from Advanced Elements
Hi Emily, I have been kayaking every day in this brilliant kayak.

My arms are sore but I feel like I am glowing.

I can’t believe how peaceful and restful it feels just sitting on the lake watching the fog lift off the water, the birds mucking  about and the fish frolicking.

The kayak is very comfortable and moves ever so easily and quickly when I want it to.


Comfortable and Supportive

There’s nothing worse than a hard seat giving you a numb bum and an aching lower back from lack of support.

Whether you are jumping in the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak for half an hour, or paddling for the whole day, you want to be comfortable and supported. Fortunately, Advanced Elements have done a wonderful job of making the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak a delight to sit in!

  • Your back is supported by the clip-in seat so you are comfortable all day
  • Your bum is cushioned by the low pressure inflatable floor reducing the risk of numbness
  • Optional foot brace to assist paddling technique

This is me at 6 months pregnant, having a paddle with my 70+ year-old parents – talk about a comfortable and supportive seat!

Durable and Reliable

Let’s be clear – the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is a lightweight inflatable kayak, but it is NOT a pool toy!

Advanced Elements have crafted a puncture-resistant inflatable that won’t let you down.

I have been paddling the AdvancedFrame range of inflatable kayaks for over a decade now, and I have never had to do a repair.
