Kayaking on the Rocklands Reservoir

“I am very impressed with the performance of the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak.

I come from a Sea Kayak and wanted something that would track well and not be blown about by the wind.

I needed a kayak that would fit into my mobile home so conventional kayaks were out.

I have so far paddled against a strong tide and was impressed with the speed I maintained.

Paddling creeks and rivers and ease of getting the kayak in and out of my vehicle; this is a perfect solution for me.

I have an AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak which I purchased in October last year.

It was great for me but my husband was too heavy for it so we purchased an AdvancedFrame Kayak for him.

He was happier with that one but was still getting wet, it was suggested to us by a kayaking teacher that we needed to increase the air pressure in our floors.

As we thought we’d pumped them to capacity we decided to try the Drop-Stitch Floor for AdvancedFrame Kayaks  instead, this worked much better and we are now enjoying our kayaks much more.

We are both novices and look extremely awkward getting in and out of our kayaks but looking better on the water thanks to the drop stitch floors.

We did need to buy a 12v pump to inflate the floors, our foot pump from our kayaks was not able to inflate the floors.

We have not had a problem packing them back into their respective bags with the new floors, which we thought we may have.

Hope this review helps in some way if you the reader are considering purchasing any of these products.

Kayaking on the Rocklands Reservoir

If you want to go kayaking on the Rocklands Reservoir, here are the details from Frances:

Kayaking on the Rocklands Reservoir - AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak & AdvancedFrame Kayak
We were kayaking on the reservoir in Rocklands State Park, which is near the Grampians in Victoria and the photo was taken as we were coming in to get out of the kayaks, which is also where we got in them. There was a small section of sand just outside of the photos perimeter.

The AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak is perfect for Frances 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 her back
  • It’s very durable – she 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!
