Great little Bellows Foot Pump that is not tiring to use.

It only takes about 70 pumps to get up close to the 2 PSI I need then so that I can see the gauge correctly, I can bend over and even push it in with my hand to ensure I get the correct pressure.

The only thing that I do have a small issue is (partly due to my small fat fingers) is the other fittings getting in the way when I am trying to screw on to the inlet adapter.

I think I will make a small modification and cut off the rubber strands that hold the fittings on and use a piece of fishing line and only have the two fittings I need for my AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak.

The other good thing is that I have a small bag I put the foot pump into and it sits nicely behind my seat.

The Inline Valve Adaptor with Gauge is a great addition to my Kayak package and gives a great accurate indication so that I can consistently get the same outcome every time and ensure that I don’t over inflate and damage the Kayak.

Good size dial with easy to read numbers and colours for the details I need.”

AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak AE1017-O from Advanced Elements

The AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak is perfect for Bob because:

  • It’s a super-lightweight kayak
  • It’s nice and compact – a great kayak for travelling
  • The high-backed seat is very comfortable and supportive for his back
  • It’s very durable – he didn’t have to worry about submerged obstacles
  • It’s a delight to paddle! Cuts through the water with a wonderful glide.

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!
