“The AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak is extremely well thought out and put together.

Every aspect seems to have been catered for.

My first experience on the water in the Expedition Elite was very memoriable and 6 hours of paddling seemed to pass in the blink of an eye.

I have found that the Expedition Elite simple to set up and can be done in under 10 minutes quite comfortably.

On the water the kayak is very stable and tracks well, but in a strong current and or wind can be a little cumbersone.

I feel the addition of the AdvancedTrak Kayak Rudder Kit would aid in rectifying this problem.

When the conditions are calm it is a breeze to paddle and I have no difficulty in keeping up with friends on hard shelled kayaks.

Being an inflatable kayak it folds down to a suitcase size (83cm x 52cm x 26cm) so is very easy to store when not in use and can be carried in the back of a car without the worry of roof racks.

If storage and transport is a problem for you I would highly recommend the Advanceframe Expedition Elite Kayak and would highly recommend purchasing from oz inflatable kayaks as Emily was wonderful to deal with and was very knowledgeable and answered every question I threw at her and the service was second to none.

Kayaking at Bilarong Reserve

If you want to go kayaking at Bilarong Reserve, here’s where Max launched his kayak:

Kayaking at Bilarong Reserve

I took the kayak out on Narrabeen lakes yesterday and the weather was stunning.  What started as a couple of hours paddling ended up being 6 hours. Hence the sunset shots.

I launch is Bilarong Reserve off Wakehurst Parkway, North Narrabeen. Another launching spot, is Lakeside Park off Lake Park Road. There is great paddling and exploring up Deep Creek, Middle Creek, and South Creek.

The AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Kayak is perfect for Max because:

  • It’s fast and glides smoothly through the water
  • It has a huge capacity of 204kg so he was able to load up the kayak with gear and even more
  • The inflatable lumbar seat is very comfortable and supportive for his back
  • It’s very durable – he didn’t have to worry about submerged obstacles
  • It packs into a bag so it’s easy to store and transport

BUT, it might not be the right kayak for you.

It’s a lot of money down the drain if you get the wrong model, so it’s worth asking for my advice!

About Oz Inflatable Kayaks

Inflatable Kayak Seaworld Lagoon Emily

Hi, my name is Emily and over a decade ago I thought to myself “gee, I would really love to go kayaking … if only I had a big strong butler to help me get a kayak on and off roof racks. Oh, and several thousand dollars for the kayak and the roof racks (not to mention the cost of the butler)”.

To find a way to go paddling without a heavy hard-shell kayak, I started looking into inflatable kayaks. But I did NOT want a pool toy.

The Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks really blew me away (excuse the terrible pun).

I realised that the quality was not just about durability, it also meant that the kayaks were comfortable and easy to paddle straight and fast.

It just so happens that I was also looking for a business opportunity at the same time…

Nowadays I specialise (and delight) in selling Advanced Elements inflatables to all kinds of people in Australia.

I know the range so well that I do personalised recommendation videos to help people choose the right kayak.

It’s a no-obligation service that I enjoy doing AND it helps me in the long run because my customers that get a recommendation get the right kayak, first time. They are HAPPY customers!

So if you are even vaguely thinking about kayaking, get in touch or get your FREE personalised kayak recommendation now.

Kayaking on the Murray River Albury NSW

“I have always loved paddling on the river and on still water but it was impossible for me to do it independently. You can’t stop me now. In less than 10 minutes after pulling up I’m on the water.”
