“The AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak is easy to set up.
It’s really really stable and tracks well.
Great streamlined design and very bright and easily seen by other water craft including powered.
I’m very disabled with ME/CFS so fatigue and other physical impairments make doing any activity difficult.
This makes it much easier and if you have a fatigue- based disease or ongoing fatigue of any sort I can also recommend getting the GE2 Electric Pump to conserve your energy to enjoy being out on the water…
One of my concerns about gearing up to paddle was the need for a PFD.
Those puffy life jackets are absolutely unsuitable and impossible to make paddling anything but arduous.
I’ve put up with them in commercial ventures but for my own, if you’re a woman who has any semblance of a bust and wears a bra, stay clear of the puffy vest PFDs and DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR and get the CrewFit 165N Sport Inflatable Lifejacket.
It’s not in the way when I’m using the paddle and out on the water.
You want to be able to move your arms very freely.
The CrewFit gives you that freedom plus the peace of mind should you ever find yourself in the water inadvertently.
It’s well priced and a quality product.
It is light and easy to paddle with..
Thoroughly recommended for women and the other advantage is that in warmer climates and weather your clothes can breathe and you’re not sweating unnecessarily.“
Kayaking at Lake Kurwongbah
If you want to go kayaking at Lake Kurwongbah, here is the map:
“Lake Kurwongbah in North Brisbane (Moreton Region), has great parking, shade, ideal for paddlers.
When the power boats towing skiiers are not there, it’s very tranquil and enjoyable out on the water.
Close car parking to launch site distance.
Great for those who are disabled kayakers and famiilies with good facilities close by and nice grass on the shores for people to watch.” – Tricia
The AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak is perfect for Tricia because:
- It’s a super-lightweight kayak, weighs only 8kg
- It tracks straight and is a delight to paddle
- Packs away into a duffel bag the size of a small suitcase
- Her back is supported by the clip-in seat so she was comfortable all day
- The foot brace (included) supported her back as well while she was paddling
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
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!Click HERE to get your FREE personalised kayak recommendation
