sea kayak for use in open ocean:

Stable

AdvancedFrame Expedition Kayak Review

In open ocean, the water is moving a lot more than in flat water and it moves your kayak around under you. If you are in a very narrow kayak, it can take a lot of concentration, core strength and energy just to prevent capsizing. For most people, this just isn’t a lot of fun! A stable kayak will allow you to sit back and relax from time to time, and to concentrate on your paddle stroke, rather than on staying upright.

Dry

The AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak is an enclosed sit-in kayak, rather than an exposed sit-on-top kayak. The cockpit is narrow with inflatable coaming, so you get quite a bit of protection

from splash. If you want even more protection, you can attach the skirt to the coaming to keep the water out and the warmth in. This gives you the freedom to go kayaking even in choppy or very cold water.

Fast and Straight

Advancedframe Expedition vs Expedition Elite Inflatable Kayak Paddling

If you are the ambitious type and want to cover long distances, the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak is fast and tracks very straight.

Cuts through Chop

The patented AdvancedFrame bow and stern cut through chop easily.

Comfortable

AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Inflatable Kayak

Often when you are sea kayaking, you are on the water for long stretches without a break on dry land to stretch your legs. It is therefore SUPER important that you are comfortable. The AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak has an adjustable foot rest and a high back seat with adjustable lumbar support – magic for your back!

Gear

There is heaps of deck space, heaps of D-rings and bungee lacing and a huge weight capacity, so if you are thinking of gearing up for a multi-day expedition, load ‘em up!

Attachments

Reviews

Kayaking at Hinze Dam

“I purchased my Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak a few months ago and have been absolutely loving it! I can highly recommend this kayak to anyone who wants a high performing kayak but doesn’t have the option to store and transport a traditional kayak.”

Bought 2 – Expedition & Standard Advanced Frame

“We purchased 2 Kayaks from Emily, the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Inflatable Kayak, and the AdvancedFrame Kayak.
