What's the Secret?

How did we get so many great inflatable kayak reviews?

Easy – by ensuring our customers get the right kayak.

If you want to know how to choose a kayak, start with our comprehensive list of kayak buying guides.

Unfortunately, inflatable kayak reviews can be misleading…

It’s not that people are dishonest – far from it.  Our customers genuinely LOVE their inflatable kayaks!

The problem with reviews is that they can lead you to thinking you need something you don’t.

For example, maybe you are a beginner and you’re looking at a bunch of online reviews for the AirFusion EVO. This is our fastest kayak, but it is not our stablest. Experienced kayakers don’t really care about stability, they are interested in speed. So the kayak will have heaps of excellent reviews because it is super-fast.

BUT …

If you purchased the AirFusion EVO because of all those great reviews from experienced kayakers, you would be making a mistake. As a beginner, you need to start with something more stable, such as the AdvancedFrame.

So what good are inflatable kayak reviews???

First, you need to get some advice on which kayaks are right for you. THEN, you can look at the reviews to help make a decision.

Getting advice is not a big deal – we do it all the time. Here are the factors we consider when helping you choose a kayak:

  • Your size – both length and weight
  • Your strength and physical limitations
  • The kind of water you will be paddling in – eg open ocean vs whitewater
  • How long your paddling trips will be
  • Your paddling experience
  • Anything else you want to tell me!
