“Everything promised, this AdvancedFrame Kayak delivered in spades.
Efficient – easy to paddle for long periods of time, cuts through calm and choppy water with ease.
Sturdy – surprised how strong the materials are and how well it has been put together.
Stable – the inflated cells sitting with side of my thighs make this kayak the most stable i have ever paddled (sure it’s wider and I lose straight line speed – but Im not going out in it for racing).
Comfortable – I’m sitting on an inflatable floor between inflatable bouyancy chambers, all floating on water – think about it, nothing could be more comfortable.
The seat back with infinite support adjustment gives me so many seating options.
Not having to lift a kayak up onto rook racks anymore (with sore and worn-out shoulders) has allowed me to easily get onto the water again.
I can’t fault my purchase in any way.
Been used to the “old fashioned” type of life jacket, which I had paddled in for many years.
This new style Crewfit 165N Sport Inflatable Lifejacket is so low profile and easy to paddle in.
Fortunately, I haven’t used it inflated yet so I can’t vouch for that component.
The Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge makes inflation and deflation so easy and simple.
Very quick with the dual action pumping.
When paddling you would never know the Touring 4-Part Kayak Paddle was in four pieces – so sturdy.
Very light too so it doesn’t bother my bad shoulder on long paddles.
Can be straight OR offset for left or right handers too (I’m a left hander).
Really is so easy to store and use.
QuickDraw Deck Bag, the name is perfect -“quick”.
So easy to access frequently used items eg phone, GoPro and the like.
Easy to fit and remove.
No more reaching into the large storage compartment behind my kayak seat.”
Kayaking on the Hacking River
If you want to go kayaking on the Hacking River, here’s a map of the route that Mark took:
My mate, Bob, and I paddled from Swallow Rock Reserve (Grays Point) up to Audley Weir last Friday – lost count of the number of people asking about our kayaks.
The AdvancedFrame Kayak is perfect for Mark because:
- It’s fast and glides straight and fast through the water
- It’s lightweight with a weight of 16.3kg
- The clip-in seat is very comfortable and supportive for his back
- It’s very durable and reliable – 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!Click HERE to get your FREE personalised kayak recommendation
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
