“This is a great product. I have used the GE2 Electric Pump a few times now and love the result.”
“The AdvancedFrame Kayak we chose is excellent and very good quality, all delivered in good time. Highly recommend.”
“We love our AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak, very stable, comfortable and easy to paddle with plenty of room. The Touring 4-Part Kayak Paddle & PackLite 4-Part Kayak Paddle are both well-balanced. The Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge works well and easy to read the pressure gauge”
“The AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak performed beautifully – even on a 7km paddle back into a 20kt headwind!”
“I liked the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak a lot to begin with, and the inflatable foot braces have transformed it. They’re very easy to fit as you inflate the boat, and they’re surprisingly stable in holding their position against foot pressure even when not done up very tightly.”
“The AdvancedFrame Kayak is very easy to set-up. Paddles are remarkably straight and no lifting onto the car roof needed. I will be taking it away on our next caravan trip. It’s so easy to use. I am very happy with my kayak and the help I received from Emily.”
“I purchased the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak as I missed kayaking with my daughter when she took her hard plastic sit-ins north to live. 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 purchased the Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak as a joint Christmas present for my partner and I. 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.”
“We purchased our AdvancedFrame Sport Kayaks 6 weeks ago and have been out in them 5 times. 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.”
“I am absolutely thrilled with my AdvancedFrame 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.”
“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 look at an inflatable kayak and at first I was sceptical so I researched, researched and researched some more.”
“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.”
“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!”
“Initial reaction: So easy to carry the boat to the water. The boat has excellent primary stability. Very secure feeling sitting in it. The main chambers really provide the boat with a solid feel. Paddling the boat tracked straight. No skeg or rudder.”
“I know I left it a bit late in life to get into kayaking. Better late than never. For the first half of this year I spent most of my time at Tweed Heads helping out my sister in law, who was diagnosed with cancer. She lived across the road from the Tweed River, so it was ideal for me to go out and buy an inexpensive inflatable kayak…
“Straight up, this AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak was brilliant. We have never kayaked and wanted to try the experience and it was so much fun and a good exercise. To be able to take the dog with us was tremendous, she had a ball, no issues at all.”
“We put our AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak in at Hindmarsh Island. I haven’t done mine yet (tentative about back) but I did have a little go in Tony’s & it was fab. So comfy! It’s like sitting on a great soft lounge chair. It’s supportive of my back, very easy to paddle and getting along easily in water. Very impressed, & happy!”
“Recently used the Kayak Cart with my AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak. Even though the kayak is easy to carry, the cart made it all much easier (especially when a hill was involved). It is very handy if you have a bit further to walk to get to the waters edge. Light weight and compact. Found it quick and easy to attach and detach from the kayak. Stowed easily on the back deck of the kayak whilst paddling. The pictures were taken at Lake Conjola, South Coast, NSW.”
Heath recently shared to me via email his Glenelg River adventure together with some stunning images. “Good afternoon Emily, we had a great trip and the AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayaks for the most part held up really well and I was very surprised about how effortless they were to paddle long distances.”
“I bought the AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak earlier this year while recovering from broken ribs thinking it would be weeks before I could use it.
“We have been out in the Kayaks 4 times now, once on an inland river and the rest of the time out in the estuaries around Brisbane. Both kayaks have been fantastic, they cut through the water really well and they track very straight even when paddling hard.”
“The kayak, AdvancedFrame Convertible Elite Kayak, you recommended was easily carried the 200m to the water. It was windy but the kayak tracked perfectly and we were both impressed by the kayaks performance and stability. The service from you was very speedy. “

“Hello Emily, I trust that you are going well and business is rewarding your efforts. The attached photo isn’t particularly dramatic, but reflects another good paddle with our AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak around the mouth of the Maroochy River while holidaying at the Cotton Tree Holiday Park in March 2019; very restful.”

Dennis and Lee (famous from the Hamersley Inlet post) are further north now, and recently went kayaking on Yardie Creek in Cape Range National Park,
“Emily, Everything that you said about the Advancedframe Sport Inflatable Kayak is true. As a 65 year old grandma I can fit the deflated kayak
Comparing the AdvancedFrame kayaks – now these three kayaks kind of look very similar. I mean, they’re obviously different colours, but they’re the same length, they’re the same width, and the design looks pretty well the same. So why did the Advanced Elements create three different kayaks?
Inflatable kayaks are portable, comfortable, lightweight and inexpensive… but let’s address the most important question of all – are inflatable kayaks safe? Before we get into the detail, I should point out that paddle sports can be dangerous no matter what kind of watercraft you are in. In fact, if we are getting philosophical, LIFE is dangerous.
So you’re looking for a lightweight and portable kayak, but you’re wondering, are inflatable kayaks any good? Inflatable kayaks cop a lot of flak and quite frankly, I’m sick of it. Because, like everything in life, you get what you pay for. If you only want to spend $200, then your inflatable kayak will not be any good.
“This package is excellent! You know when you’re camped on a river and you think, “I wonder what’s around that bend?” Well, now we can

I have had my Expedition for almost a year now and use it on average about once a week. It mostly gets used for flat-water
Thanks Emily, Sent you some pics of the kayak loaded up for our overnight camp. I was concerned that it would be unstable but it
