There are 4 differences between the AdvancedFrame Sport and the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak:

  1. The Sport Elite has a drop-stitch floor whereas the Sport has a soft floor. The drop-stitch is high pressure and greatly enhances the rigidity and therefore speed and tracking of the kayak.
  2. The seat on the Sport Elite has an inflatable lumbar cushion inside it, the Sport seat does not. The Sport Elite seat also has a raised bum pad, which gives you a bit more height in the kayak, helping with paddling technique.
  3. The Sport Elite has the Inflatable Foot Brace included, whereas you have to buy it separately for the Sport.
  4. The duffel bag for the Sport Elite has padded, adjustable, detachable backpack straps, whereas the bag for the Sport just has regular shoulder straps.

“We bought our first Adventure Elements inflatable kayak in 2008 – and we are still using it, with no problems – everything is as we bought it! We bought a second one a year later, which we gave away as a gift a few years after that (now slightly regretting our generosity). We have bought the new Sport kayak to give us flexibility as we travel around Australia, replacing a plastic roof top canoe. So far, only used twice but are completely rapt again.

AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak FAQs

Performance

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

It depends on your weight. For people under about 80kg, it’s surprisingly fast!

It’s not the fastest kayak we sell, but it’s got a wonderful ‘glide’ to it.

If you’re over 80kg, the kayak starts to lose rigidity, which impacts on it’s speed, and I would recommend the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak instead.

Even though it’s only 3.2m long, the built-in fin and the awesome AdvancedFrame hull design give you a wonderful paddling experience.

advancedframe sport kayak frances testimonial

Yes, for a shortish kayak, the tracking is impressive.

The aluminium ribs in the bow and stern stop the kayak from waggling and the fin helps it glide straight.

advancedframe sport kayak jacqueline testimonial

Not much.

All kayaks are wind affected to some degree.

You can generally predict how wind affected it’s going to be based on the ratio of kayak above the waterline to kayak below the waterline.

The AdvancedFrame Sport is a sit-in kayak, so it sits quite low in the water, especially compare to other inflatables, so it performs quite well in wind.

advancedframe sport kayak tracking

Comfort

The seat (included) has a stiff, high back, which gives you excellent support, IF you get the angle right.

We sell a compatible  inflatable foot brace that adds to your comfort by supporting your lower back as you paddle.

Inflatable Foot Brace bb

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is compatible with the inflatable foot brace. A lot of paddlers swear by foot braces for encouraging good paddling technique and for supporting the lower back.

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak has good back support – the seat back is high and stiff with adjustable straps to get the angle right. 

advancedframe sport elite kayak christine pfitzner 2

What is the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak good for?

advancedframe sport inflatable kayak marie salinger

Yes, if they are not massive.

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is not huge inside, but it has an over-sized cockpit, which means there might be enough space for both of you, depending on the size of the dog (and you).

The soft floor will need some protection from doggy claws – you can check out our Dura-Floor for this. It’s a very lightweight mat that sits over the top of the soft floor in the kayak.

The wide flat hull means the kayak is very stable so you won’t all go over board if your dog gets excited and makes a sudden move (not that they ever do that …).

Yes.

The wide flat hull means the kayak is very stable so you can focus on fishing and relaxing.

This video is from Chasing Scale who use the AdvancedFrame kayak (very similar to the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak) to make their fishing videos:

The rip-stop polyester material is extremely durable, give you the confidence that neither fish nor fishing gear will cause a puncture.

Optional kayak anchor if the fish are biting and you want to stay where you are.

230g nylon cooper anchor

Optional accessory frame if you want to attach additional rod holders, an EPERB, a fish finder, go-pro etc.

Accessory Frame System for Kayaks e1487043585802

***NOTE – to install the accessory frame on the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak, you have to cut holes in the deck and inner tube covers.

You can even put on a propeller – the ePropulsion Vaquita.

E propulsion Vaquita Propeller

Yes.

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is good for taking kids, as long as they are still small.

kayaking at hervey bay advancedframe sport kayak airvolution kayak selfie

It’s super-stable, so the kids can have a nap and muck around without tipping it over.

It’s not huge inside, but the cockpit is over-sized, so there’s enough room for both of you, as long as it’s a small child.

It’s possible to use the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak as a tender for your boat.

It’s very stable and the wide-open cockpit makes it easy to step in and out of.

It’s not our biggest kayak, but there is still quite a bit of deck space and capacity (113kg) for gear if you are using it to transport your stuff to and from shore.

**Caution – do not leave the kayak inflated on the deck of the boat. The heat will cause the pressure to rise and you could damage the kayak.

Although it performs well in chop, it is not rated for open ocean.

It’s fast and comfortable enough for anything from 1 hour to a full-day trip.

You could technically do a multi-day expedition, you just don’t have a huge amount of deck space for storage of gear.

If you have to pack a huge amount of stuff, I suggest looking at our AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite, which has a higher capacity and more storage space.

review advancedframe expedition elite AE1009 XE

No.

Although the AdvancedFrame design helps it cut through chop very well, you can NOT put on a spray skirt to keep out the waves.

The AdvancedFrame Sport is also a bit different from the AdvancedFrame kayak – it only has one main chamber in the inner tube, not two. For this reason, it is suggested you don’t go more than 50 metres from shore in this kayak.

No.

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is fine for class 1 and 2 whitewater, however it is really designed to paddle in a straight line, and therefore not recommended for rivers above class 2.

Who is the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak good for?

Yes!

This is an AWESOME kayak for beginners!

The key feature for beginners is stability and the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is wonderfully stable, so no dramas there.

The design is so good that it’s super-easy to paddle straight.

At 11.8kgs it’s light enough for most people to lift.

The wide-open cockpit makes it easy for people to get in and out.

kayaking at yacht st to broadwater parklands advancedframe sport kayak buildings in sight

Yes, it is awesome for seniors!

In my experience, seniors are looking for a lightweight kayak, and at 11.8kg, the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak definitely ticks that box.

The other key features for seniors are stability and ease of getting in and out – the AdvancedFrame Sport is extremely stable and the wide open cockpit makes it easy to get in and out of.

advancedframe sport kayak jacqueline testimonial

Yes, depending on the age and strength of the child, of course.

It’s light, stable and easily manouverable, which are the key features for kids when they are learning to paddle independently.

My very slight daughter at 6 years old can paddle it, but only just. If a strong wind came up, she would struggle.

advancedframe sport kayak david cran

The AdvancedFrame Sport is a sit-in kayak, so you do have to get your legs in and out of the cockpit.

But having said that, the cockpit is over-sized and the kayak is very stable, so it’s pretty easy.

advancedframe sport kayak peter testimonial

No.

It’s good up to about 6’2″, but beyond that, you want to consider the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite kayak.

You can adjust the seat straps to bring the seat closer to the front of the kayak, or further back in the cockpit to give you more leg room.

When I say “about 6’2″”, it’s hard to be precise. Whether you fit in the kayak is more a function of leg length, rather than overall height. It also depends on how you like to sit in the kayak – legs straight requires more space than legs bent.

advancedframe expedition elite kayak testimonial

The maximum capacity is 113kg / 250lbs.

Having said that, the rigidity of the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak starts to drop off at around 80kg, at which point you want to consider the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite kayak instead.

About the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

There are 4 differences between the AdvancedFrame Sport and the AdvancedFrame Sport Elite Kayak:

  1. The Sport Elite has a drop-stitch floor whereas the Sport has a soft floor. The drop-stitch is high pressure and greatly enhances the rigidity and therefore speed and tracking of the kayak.
  2. The seat on the Sport Elite has an inflatable lumbar cushion inside it, the Sport seat does not. The Sport Elite seat also has a raised bum pad, which gives you a bit more height in the kayak, helping with paddling technique.
  3. The Sport Elite has the Inflatable Foot Brace included, whereas you have to buy it separately for the Sport.
  4. The duffel bag for the Sport Elite has padded, adjustable, detachable backpack straps, whereas the bag for the Sport just has regular shoulder straps.

Advanced Elements have been making inflatable kayaks for well over 20 years – you don’t have to worry about quality.

All kayaks are inflated at the factory and left for 24 hours to ensure there are no slow leaks.

The main hull material used is called PVC tarpaulin and it is super thick and tough.

PVC Tarpaulin Illustration 1

The floor is PVC and has a pressure-release valve to prevent damage from over-inflation.

If you are taking dogs or going fishing, I recommend the Dura-floor to protect the inflatable floor in the kayak.

In the extremely rare case that you damage the hull, the kayak comes with a repair kit, so you can put on a patch.

It’s a sit-in kayak.

advancedframe sport kayak toni case

The cockpit is over-sized for easy entry and exit, so you can NOT put on a spray-skirt.

But in most conditions you will stay dry.

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is a solo kayak – this means it has seating for only 1 person.

Although it is spacious, you could NOT fit two adults in it.

Taking a small child with you is totally viable though.

kayaking at hervey bay advancedframe sport kayak airvolution kayak selfie

Deflated and packed dimensions are:

76cm x 43cm x 20cm

You can get the depth (20cm) down a bit by putting the seats somewhere else, but the other dimensions can’t really be altered.

The weight is 11.8kg and the kayak comes with a durable duffel bag.

advancedframe convertible inflatable kayak bag AE1007 e1515631804904

At 11.8kg, the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak is one of our lightest kayaks.

Most people can carry it down to the water by themselves.

advancedframe sport elite kayak being carried

The AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is ludicrously stable.

advancedframe sport kayak wendy testimonial

There is a fin – it is part of the hull.

advancedframe fin 1024x768 1

There is no rudder on the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak.

Although the Rudder Kit we sell is technically compatible with this kayak, you would have to be exceptionally short for that to be viable.

Note that the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak is easy to paddle, tracks very well and is not very wind affected, so you are not likely to need a rudder.

Yes, the ePropulsion Vaquita can be used with the ratchet straps (included with the propeller).

No.

The cockpit is too big and there is no inflatable coaming.

How to use the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

You can review the instruction manual here:

AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak Instruction Manual

But my strong recommendation is that you take a look at the setup video:

It should take you around 5 minutes, once you have got the hang of it.

It’s about 4 minutes, once you have got the hang of it.

You just take off the valve covers and set the valves to deflate. Walk away for a few minutes and it’s done.

You can use the deflate function of the pump if you want to, but I have never found this to be necessary.

The best thing you can do is put an old towel inside the kayak when you go paddling. This keeps the inside dry and clean.

You will almost certainly get some water on the deck and sides, but if you can keep the inside clean and dry, that makes things easier.

If it’s salt water on the outside, you may wish to use a wash cloth with clean water to pat the deck of the kayak.

Do NOT use a hose, the kayak gets way too wet that way.

The deck doesn’t take too long to dry, then you can fold the kayak up as per the instructions.

Yes, it DOES go back in the bag!

advancedframe sport kayak li lin testimonial

What to buy

• Carrying Duffel Bag

• Folding Seat

• Repair Kit

• Owner’s Manual

• Double Action Hand Pump

You need to purchase a paddle and a life jacket as the minimum.

We also recommend a dry-bag for keeping your gear dry.

Check out our Fishing Gear section if you want to do some kayak fishing.

Any double bladed kayak paddle will work, but I would strongly suggest getting a LONG one, so you can easily get over the side tubes. Ours start at 230cm.

Check out our range of collapsible kayak paddles.

Pretty well any pump on the market capable of 2 PSI will work, but I would strongly suggest you use our Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge because it has all the right adapters and comes with a 90-day warranty.

Best Thing I Have Done This Year

I love the convenience and the standard of performance of my new inflatable kayak. I keep the kayak on the back seat of my car with the accessories in the boot. Any time the weather is fine, I can go for a paddle in the local rivers or in Corio Bay. It takes me less than 10 minutes to set up and pack up. Better still, is how the kayak performs on the water. It moves along very well and is so comfortable. The craft is very sturdy and made to last. Great value for money. Lastly, there is excellent backup from the team at Oz Inflatable.

Great kayak

My new kayak is great. I'm not a very experienced at kayaking. The Advanced Frame Kayak is easy to set up, very stable and is great on the water. It steers well. It's is also very comfortable with the seat provided. I have had some lovely paddles locally and I am looking forward to using it often. It fits nicely in my car, in fact, my friend also bought the same kayak and they both fit in the back of my car. This makes it soo easy to get out and about on the water. I am over 60 and find the whole process easy and enjoyable. I'm looking forward to many adventures. The packing up is also quite easy and a simple wipe down after your paddle and let dry. I'm very happy with my purchase and I'm very impressed with all of the information from Oz Inflatable kayaks prior to my purchase.

Loving my AdvancedFrame Sport!

This kayak is easy to set up, fairly light to carry (I'm in my late 60s) and handles well in the water. I'm transitioning from a 5m hardshell ocean kayak with a rudder that's too difficult for me to lift now and was expecting a big let down, but honestly, the Sport is surprisingly good. It tracks well, goes at a reasonable speed and I'm physically able to get it in and out of the car and then in and out of the water, with no dramas. I've used it already on a lake and on the Nepean River (but it's not suitable for ocean kayaking). For me, it's a great compromise. And it DOES fit back into the bag. Just watch Emily's "how to" video a few times. 🙂

Love it!

I wish I'd bought this years ago! It's the first kayak I've owned and the lightness and ease of handling was a revelation to me after some of the heavy, clunky things I've used on holidays. At first I only took it out on very still days, but now I'm getting braver as it feels incredibly stable and handles choppier seas with ease. Set-up and pack-up are a breeze once I got into the routine. Emily was great to deal with and promptly fixed a small problem that arose a few weeks in. I'm having the time of my life and my Chihuahua, Simba, also enjoys a ride!

Really enjoying my Advanced Elements Sport, and a big thank you to the awesome Emily who talked me through the pros and cons of each model with transparent sincerity. I chose the right one, at 11kg I can lift and carry it (I’m 65) and it handles beautifully on the water. Be warned if there are people around when you land they will always stop to admire it!

Exceeded expectations

Took the kayak out for the first time and was very impressed. Only needed a few minutes to set up (it has a lot lower psi than for our sup, so much less pumping), and I could carry to water one handed. Tracks really well and got me from a to b quicker than I thought it might. Easy to deflate, fold and get back in bag for trip home. Overall, very impressed with purchase, quick delivery and quality of kayak.

Excellent: I would definitely buy from you again!

I am a very happy owner of the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak, Inflatable Foot Brace and Orbit 4-Part Kayak Paddle! After extensive research online of various inflatable kayak suppliers in Australia and product reviews, I settled on Oz Inflatable as the supplier. What drew me to this company was the comprehensive website resources of an extensive range of kayaks and supporting info (especially video!) and the product reviews. After completing the recommendation request form, I received a reply from Emily with a personalised video (!) and after a brief exchange I had made up my mind (I knew what I wanted, just needed a little more info). I was super impressed that the kayak arrived in TWO days, especially in lockdown times! I am also extremely satisfied by the prompt customer service that was provided by Emily and her despatch team. I have since paddled in an open lake with strong currents and it performs well! I am pleased with the paddle being detachable. I did have to get used to the length (adjusted to shortest) but it is OK to use now. The foot brace is also appreciated as it suits my paddling style. It was a useful tip to have a towel here, in fact I have not had to use this much as not much water enters the craft even during a paddle through a bit of choppy conditions. I use it more to wipe down after my outing! Everything packs up well into my little Suzuki Swift! The product comes with a puncture repair kit which I hope I won't need to use too soon. I am mindful of not paddling near rocks or shelled surfaces/bottoms, I can see how the skin could get compromised as it is not a thick material. The Sport Kayak suits me to a tee because of my petite and light physique, it is easy to transport and manoeuvre. I have paddled in a rigid sea kayak before so that is my reference. I love the inflatable kayak because it wins on so many counts, the technology of the inflatable kayak has vastly improved over the years. I also highly recommend getting the hand pump, I have managed to get the inflation time to 5 minutes so I can spend more time on the water. In 3 weeks I have had 4 paddle outings with the Sport, it is extremely comfortable and a breeze to paddle in � the smile is still on my face from the first time on the water! I live in an area with quite a few waterways � creeks, semi sheltered harbours and open lakes so I am looking forward to many days of exploration with the Sport. I highly recommend Oz Inflatable if anyone is looking for an inflatable kayak.

The AdvancedFrame Sport Kayaks handle really well and even I can manage to get in and out with a modem of decorum! Nothing but praise so far. They are such a no-brainer for “elderly”, but still active retirees like ourselves. Our kids and grand kids will also love the kayaks.

Worth the extra money!

I really wanted an inflatable kayak because I don't have the room to store a conventional one. First ones I found were the cheap $200 ones and they had terrible reviews. I'm so glad I decided to save up and buy an Advanced Frame Sport kayak! I've taken it out twice now and it has been exactly what I expected. Both times I've had my 2 little kids nearby and I managed to get it all pumped up and ready to go very easily, despite them chattering away in my ear the whole time! I also recommend the videos Emily has created, both for setting up and cleaning and packing away. I'm so glad this site exists because I really felt I could trust that the product would be worth the money. Thank you!

Love it!

Great service from Emily at Oz Inflatables. Really easy to get going, right out of the box! My 1st set-up was pretty seamless and fast. The large opening is great for easy entry & exit but I have made a custom splash cover to fit, as the larger opening collects more drips, splashes and rain, and the cover helps reduce sun on my legs. I live near the water in Hervey Bay, so there is a light chop and swell (up to 0.5 M) on the sheltered waters of the bay. The A/F Sport handles the bay conditions well, but I recommend fitting a "backbone" for improved tracking and rigidity in coastal conditions. I bought the inflatable foot brace option also, and I wouldn't be without it for comfort and support. This kayak has heaps of space for gear on and within the boat, and I even carry a collapsible wheel kit onboard for the run to/from the car.
