Do you want excellent performance on the water with minimal set-up time?

The Drop-stitch Kayak Package is like combining a rigid inflatable stand-up paddle board with the already amazing AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak – a match made in heaven!

You get a kayak that glides super straight and fast and is quick and easy to set up.

The basis of this package is the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak – the best when it comes to paddling performance.

*** Note: Kayak Cart is currently out of stock. Due back in-stock mid-March 2020. Package will STILL BE SHIPPED but the Kayak Cart would be to follow. ***

Here is what makes the Drop-Stitch Kayak Package from Advanced Elements the best when it comes to paddling performance:

  • Speed – the DS floor has very little drag in the water, so you can go faster than the regular floor allows. With two people paddling in sync, this kayak really flies!
  • Straight Tracking – the hard DS floor creates corners on the hull of the kayak, which help the kayak to glide straight in the water.
  • Spacious – there is plenty of room for dogs, children, camping gear, fishing gear and unlike most tandem kayaks where you are squished in like sardines, there is plenty of room for two people to paddle independently.
  • Versatile – you can paddle with a wide open cockpit or fully enclosed with spray skirts if you are in cold weather or open ocean.
  • Stable – the wide flat hull allows you to relax when you are paddling and the rigid floor is easy to step in and out of.
  • Durable – not only are the inner tubes thoroughly protected by several layers of extremely durable materials, the DS Floor is also very durable and can easily handle dogs and fishing gear.
  • Convertible – the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite is designed to be paddled solo or tandem.


And check out these hand-picked accessories:

Drop-Stitch Floor (comes as standard with the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite kayak) – This high-pressure rigid floor gives you amazing performance on the water. Unlike the Backbone which has to be installed and removed each time you paddle, the DS Floor can be deflated and folded up inside your kayak when you are done, so it sitting there ready to be inflated for next time.

Touring Spray Skirts   – One of the great features of the AdvancedFrame Convertible is how well it handles chop in open ocean and bay water. The touring spray skirts allow you to enjoy open water kayaking and winter kayaking whilst staying dry and warm.

Double and Single Deck Conversions – the decks allow you to ‘convert’ the Convertible from a tandem to a solo kayak when your paddling partner is out of action. The inflatable coaming on the decks allow you to attack the Touring Spray Skirt for protection from cold weather and/or cold water.

Kayak Cart – Simply place the bow of your inflated kayak on the cart and then pick up the stern to wheel it down to the water. This is a back-saver when you are going solo!

Touring 4-part paddles – these paddles are durable and light, with a snug fit between the parts. Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge – this pump offer quick inflation and helps you get the kayak to the right pressure so you get more time on the water and the best performance from your kayak. It is also suitable for the DS Floor.

Dry Bag Set – Keys, phone, towel, spare clothes, snacks, camera, swimmers, whatever you think you might need, it’s always a good idea to put it into a dry bag and secure it to the kayak.

All products are covered by a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty.

Are you worried about buying sight unseen?

It’s a big purchase when you don’t really know what you are getting, isn’t it?

To make this a no-brainer for you, I want you to try out the kayak or SUP, on the water.

That’s right – I want you to actually take it for a paddle.

If you don’t like it, you can send it back for a FULL REFUND.

Most retailers will let you return a product, but it has to be in new condition – what’s the point of that? You need to be able to paddle the thing before you really know if it is right for you!

So order the kayak or SUP, take it out for a paddle and then decide if you want to keep it. You’ve got a full 30 days from delivery to make that decision, so plenty of time to do a test paddle.


Yes, that’s right, you get free shipping on this product, no matter where you live in Australia.

We use a range of couriers for shipping including Star Track Express, Couriers Please or Fastway.

They often want a signature on delivery, so have a think about whether someone will be at home (and you know Murphy’s law – if you pop out for 5 minutes, that’s when they will come!).

If it’s safe, the best option is to give Authority to Leave (ATL), which means the courier can leave it at your front door (or wherever you specify).

12-Month Manufacturer’s Warranty

Advanced Elements are pretty serious about quality.

They offer a 12 month warranty on all their products, and I can tell you with confidence that they are great about it. Although I don’t get many warranty claims, I have never had any issues getting help, parts or replacements from Advanced Elements.
