AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

If you want a kayak that is BOTH amazing to paddle AND lightweight and easy to handle, the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak has it all! This popular kayak goes straight and fast like the regular AdvancedFrame, but is lighter for handling to and from the water, and has a wider cockpit for easy entry and exit. It is comfortable and fast enough for long paddles, but also very quick to set up if you just want a little exercise.

Here’s Why I Paddle the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak:

What makes it so good?

For me, it’s the perfect combination of quick and easy set up AND a delightful paddling experience.

  • Super quick set up
  • Ultra lightweight
  • Delightful to paddle
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to get in and out of
  • Durable

Who is the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak For?

I sell this particular inflatable kayak a LOT to people who don’t want to lift a heavy kayak, but don’t want to compromise on durability and paddling performance.

It’s ideal for women, seniors and children, but the 113kg capacity means I can still sell it to big blokes who want a super-quick set up and like the look of the easy-access wide open cockpit!

Love a Quick Set Up?

Me too. The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak goes from in the bag to on the water in 4 minutes and 10 seconds.

"Hi Emily, The Sport arrived a few days ago and is great, I have tested it out and it is light enough for me to handle and only takes a few minutes to inflate and be on the water."

Lightweight for Easy Handling

Packs up into a bag about the size of a small suitcase and weighs only 11.5kg…

Easy to travel with, easy to store and (most importantly), easy to carry down to the water.

Wide Open Cockpit

The wide open cockpit allows you to take a dog or a small child with you.

Plus, it’s easier to get in and out of for those of us who are not super flexible…

"Hi Emily, I have been kayaking every day in this brilliant kayak. My arms are sore but I feel like I am glowing.

I can’t believe how peaceful and restful it feels just sitting on the lake watching the fog lift off the water, the birds mucking about and the fish frolicking.

The kayak is very comfortable and moves ever so easily and quickly when I want it to."

Comfortable and Supportive

There’s nothing worse than a hard seat giving you a numb bum and an aching lower back from lack of support.

Whether you are jumping in the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak for half an hour, or paddling for the whole day, you want to be comfortable and supported. Fortunately, Advanced Elements have done a wonderful job of making the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak a delight to sit in!

  • Your back is supported by the clip-in seat so you are comfortable all day
  • Your bum is cushioned by the low pressure inflatable floor reducing the risk of numbness
  • Optional foot brace to assist paddling technique

This is me at 6 months pregnant, having a paddle with my 70+ year-old parents – talk about a comfortable and supportive seat!

Durable and Reliable

Let’s be clear – the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is a lightweight inflatable kayak, but it is NOT a pool toy!

Advanced Elements have crafted a puncture-resistant inflatable that won’t let you down.

I have been paddling the AdvancedFrame range of inflatable kayaks for over a decade now, and I have never had to do a repair.

What’s the Difference?

The AdvancedFrame, the AdvancedFrame Sport and the AdvancedFrame Ultralite inflatable kayaks are all the same length width and look like the same design… so why did Advanced Elements create three of them??

Set-up Instructions for the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

Click here for the AdvancedFrame Sport Inflatable Kayak AE1017 Instruction Manual from Advanced Elements.

 

What type of conditions is the AdvancedFrame kayak suitable for?

The AdvancedFrame is designed to be a day touring type boat, for flat or open water. The bow and stern have a rigid semi-frame that gives it a hard edge. This greatly improves the tracking over traditional inflatables. The AdvancedFrame is fine for class 1 and 2 rivers, and durable enough for class 3, however it is really designed to paddle in a straight line, and therefore not recommended for rivers above class 3. When choosing a kayak for class 3 whitewater or greater, you really want a boat with a very rounded hull that will not grip on to the current, especially in eddys, like our Attack Whitewater Kayak. Unfortunately kayaks with very rounded hulls will not paddle very straight on flat water.

AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

Have used it once since purchasing it. Practised inflating it at home before taking it to the water. I am impressed at the quality of the kayak, its portability and ease of inflating it. My first and only paddle to date was a success. The one matter that I had to adjust a few times to get it right was the positioning of the seat. Now that we are entering warmer weather I intend using the kayak on a regular basis.

Quick and easy set up

Given lockdown, I've only been out once but that once was so relaxing and peaceful. The kayak was very stable and I thought I'd need to buy the lumbar seat but my back feels supported. The set up and pack up is so easy and I love the room in the bag to fit the paddle and pump too. My chronic health issues meant that lifting a kayak onto the roof of a car etc was a barrier and now I have the a ability to get out on the water and soak up nature from a different perspective.

Why didn’t I do this years ago!

I absolutely love my AdvancedFrame Sport kayak from Emily. From the first email enquiry to delivery a few weeks later, Emily was thoughtful, professional and especially patient with all my questions! The bespoke video recommendations are fantastic - straight to the point, informative and entertaining! The options Emily offered were appropriate for me - and helped me make an informed decision. I absolutely love my kayak I have taken it out on the river nearby quite a few morning before sunrise (even in winter!). It is super quick to inflate and light enough for me to pick up and carry to the water with one hand. It is very comfortable (like sitting on a marshmallow according to Emily!) even after three hours paddling - and I am very grateful for the back rest. I have taken my kayak up creeks, down rivers, and recently paddled across Jervis Bay where I was joined by a huge pod of leaping dolphins! Magic! The only delay I have had in getting into the water has been the result of talking to interested onlookers (and hard shell kayakers) who have been fascinated by how light and manoeuverable the boat is! I would definitely recommend Emily and Oz Inflatable Kayaks and can honestly say you will not regret buying an AdvancedFrame Sports kayak!

All good.

My kayak arrived promptly and in less than ten minutes from unpacking was ready to go, wasn't at all sure about which kayak to purchase as I wanted to take another old codger along for the ride as well (my husky dog Bosun). Emily suggested the sport, excellent choice, we both fit in comfortably with our kit /lunch ,very stable and fast kayak for beginners and the more experienced. Thanks Emily we both love this kayak.

Fantastic Service - Fantastic Product

I’m getting on in age but still want to keep active. I’ve hard hard shell kayaks in the past, but not for a lot of years. The lightweight inflatable was incredibly quick and easy to both inflate - than 10 minutes from in the bag to paddling - and pack away. Fits on the backseat of my car, so no roof racks required and easily carried to the water’s edge either inflated or in its bag. It is super comfortable. I was very surprised just how stable it is and how well it tracks. Am I happy with it?…… super happy.... I should have bought one years ago!

Advanced frame sports kayak - lots of fun

I’m having a great time with my kayak on the rivers in Perth. It’s very stable and my young granddaughter took her small dog for a paddle in it easily. I am taken with how transportable it is - I’ll be taking it with me on the plane next time I travel. A few early hiccups (operator error) which Emily quickly sorted for me. Loved going out on the Canning River with friends and paddling up to the coffee shop. Definitely having the most delightful time - thank you Emily for helping me choose this kayak which is perfect for me

Loving my Kayak

On the recommendation from a friend, I have bought the Advanced Frame Sport Kayak. I am loving it. It is easy to transport, quick to get on the water and so comfortable. Not having to put a heavy kayak on my car roof means that I go out much more often. We try and go out twice a week weather permitting. A wonderful way to get out during these Covid-19 times. I would highly recommend this kayak. Thank you Emily and your team. I also bought the drop stitch floor so I can take my 1 year old dog out but haven't used it yet. I've taken her out once and she was so excited she fell in. We will wait until she is a bit older and more sensible.

Ok, I'm impressed.

I don't think I've read a bad review about this kayak (advanced frame sport) and after spending a couple hours paddling around in it, I can see why. Nice and easy to inflate and set up - it is as easy as the videos claim it is which is not always the case with products. Easy to cart around in it's bag and seems even lighter once inflated. Very stable, super comfortable and easy to maneuver. Seems to track as well as any flatwater kayak I have owned except maybe my sea kayak but for a short-ish boat, it tracks really well and I don't find myself spending any energy in trying to keep it going straight. Quality seems excellent as was the service from Ozinflatablekayaks - posted Monday arvo and received in Central Victoria Thursday arvo. It really was relaxing and a joy to paddle and knowing I didn't have to hoist 25kg of rotomoulded boat back onto my roof at the end was a huge bonus. Perhaps the only thing to keep in mind with these boats is for long term storage - make sure they're dry when you pack them away. Mine's spending the night inflated in the warm house to make sure it doesn't get put away with any damp bits. I'm putting a video review up on youtube under 'quedecree' - please feel free to have a stickybeak. 10 out of 10 from me!

I was nervous at first of the sequence of which compartment to fill first but was able to do it. Valves are good for fast inflation and deflation. All the Chambers are removable for easy drying and cleaning. Once a central seating position is established the kayak is easy to man over but I wish the paddle was longer.

Advancedframe Sport Kayak

I purchased the Advancedframe Sport Kayak as I missed kayaking with my daughter when she took her hard plastic sit ins north to live. She did most of the heavy work back then like loading and unloading them into the trailer. They were quite heavy and cumbersome. I spoke with Emily and she asked questions about my fitness and age and actually suggested the one I was looking at, the Advancedframe Sport Kayak. I'm in my 60's, far from fit, and I can manage to carry it to the waters edge, inflate, pack it with my little stove and esky to make a cuppa at my destination and off I go, and it fits in my car! No more trailer for me. It's the most comfortable kayak I've ever sat in and easy to paddle. I use it mainly in Cattai Creek and into the Hawkesbury River. I love all the different birds, water dragons and also the peace and quiet. It takes me 10 minutes to inflate and be on my way, but at my age, I'm not trying to break Emily's record of under 5 minutes 😂 I can't recommend this kayak higher nor Emily who is the most helpful person I've come across, and I honestly mean that. Thanks again Emily.

Advanced Element Sport

I am very impressed with the performance of the sport model. 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.

We love our Advanced Frame Sport Kayaks

We purchased our kayaks 6 weeks ago and have been out in them 5 times. In that time we’ve kayaked on Sydney Harbour (Rodd Point and North Head to Manly), Pittwater, Lake Macquarie and Lake Narrabeen. The kayaks are even better than we expected, they are stable & track well, even in strong winds or a swell. We chose these kayaks because they are so light (12kgs) and as I am much heavier than my partner & want to take a dog with me at times, I also purchased the drop stitch floor. It does the job perfectly & fits easily in the kayak when packed. We did a lot of research before purchasing these kayaks and also found Emily’s personalised advice extremely helpful. The kayaks are easy & quick to inflate although we did end up purchasing the electric pump as we both have some joint issues. They pack back into their bags with ease, this really surprised me, we store the 4 piece paddle, foot rest & seat in the bag as well. We use a separate bag for the life vests and pump. Both kayaks fit in the back of our car, are easy to lift & carry (even easier when inflated) & are not a problem to store. I have no hesitation in recommending these kayaks to anyone who is looking for a lighter kayak, in our opinion it performs like the best of the hard shell kayaks we have used.

So glad I bought this kayak - it is awesome!

I am absolutely thrilled with my AF Sport Kayak and the outstanding advice and support I received from Emily when making the decision about which model kayak would suit me and my needs best. I love using the kayak and the best thing is that I can take it anywhere. Yesterday I drove to Lake Buffalo with two other passengers in my Kia Cerrato and still had plenty of room for the kayak, my gear and a large esky. The kayak is so stable and easy to manoeuvre on the water and I love it when Rueben ( my dog) comes along for a paddle. I would definitely recommend talking to Emily about this product - I think you will love it too.

Kayaking at Tweed Heads, NSW

I know I left it a bit late in life to get into kayaking. Better late than never. For the first half of this year I spent most of my time at Tweed Heads helping out my sister in law, who was diagnosed with cancer. She lived across the road from the Tweed River, so it was ideal for me to go out and buy an inexpensive inflatable kayak with which I had lots of early morning paddles. Until a leak developed in a faulty seam. I took the faulty product back and replaced it with a hard shell kayak and got strap on soft roof racks to get it home to my sister in law's unit. This served me well for the time I remained, but I had no intention of carrying it back to Sydney on my car roof. Before we left Tweed Heads I was so keen to continue with the kayaking that I researched and went out and bought an AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak. When I easily got this home I had many great paddles on the Nepean River near Camden, but also occasionally near Menangle. This venue involves going down and up a fairly steep bank. For a 78 year old with heart problems the return journey up the bank with 11Kgs on my shoulder was a bit daunting. So I got my AdvancedFrame Ultralite Kayak. Both kayaks are comfortable and a delight to paddle. I can wholeheartedly recommend either of these.

Absolutely Awesome!

Very easy to set up and take down, and I am short and not particularly strong. Setup in only a few minutes, then a beautiful smooth ride! Easy to paddle and navigate, and room for my beloved pup! Emily super helpful in choosing the right one for me. Overall, so glad I did it!

Love our new kayaks

Bought ourselves two Advanced frame sport inflatable kayaks for xmas and are so pleased we did. We live on Bribie Island and the kayaks are perfect for exploring Pumicestone Passage - and pulling in for a coffee stop along the way (see photo). The kayaks track really well and at 11.5 kgs are light enough for us to put on top of the car (we are two women in our 60’s). The only thing missing is somewhere to put the coffee mug! Emily was great to deal with and made this purchase very straight forward. Would highly recommend.

Everything that you said about the Advancedframe Sport Inflatable Kayak is true

Emily, Everything that you said about the Advancedframe Sport Inflatable Kayak is true. As a 65 year old grandma I can fit the deflated kayak into the back of my X-trail quickly, get to my location and easily carry it 20 metres to the shoreline. Minutes later I am away and paddling on Brisbane Waters, Gosford, it is so easy (after learning the setup, initially). Love, love it after 10 years of struggling to lift hobbies etc, this is so easy, BUT the best is when I get back to shore, deflate the kayak and I am on the way home in ten minutes, others with their fibreglass kayaks are still trying to unstrap and pack onto utes, trails and rooftops, I am on the way home to a nice cup of tea. Thanks Christine
