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…

Delightful to Paddle

  • Glide straight and cuts through chop with the patented AdvancedFrame design – no waggling when you paddle.
  • Built in fin to help you paddle straight.
  • Low centre of gravity and a flat hull make the AdvancedFrame Sport kayak very stable.  Save your strength and relax!

"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.

Set-up Instructions for the AdvancedFrame Sport Kayak

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


What type of conditions is the AdvancedFrame kayak suitable for?

The AdvancedFrame Sport 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 Sport 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.

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!

Great kayak

Easy to set up and pack down for one person, very happy with purchase!

The best

Easy to use, fun to use, changed my weekends!

Kerry N.

The kayak was easy and quick to set up and pump up. It was stable in the water and feel I will be able to use this well into my 70s. Love this product

Amelia M.

Great decision

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!

Advanced Frame Sport Kayak

Loving my new kayak, so great to be able to launch from almost anywhere, so portable and easy to set up. I am a 62 yr old women and can manage the set-up easily and independantly. Very comfortable to sit in, can adjust the seat for great back support and better paddling. Plenty of room for any bits and bobs I need to take along. Love it!

Rhys J.

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.

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.

Blue sky, clean water and my AdvancedFrame Sport kayak

My Advanced Frame Sport kayak was soooo easy to set up, and light to carry. At Lake Coolmunda, Qld, I paddled right out to drift quietly amongst darting swallows catching insects off the water, majestic pelicans drifting past, and a large mixed flock of several hundred little black and little pied comorants. The quietness of the kayak enabled me to get right amongst the birdlife, and left me feeling both at peace and exhilarated. Later the wind came up, and the water became choppy, but the sports kayak just paced straight through. It is a dream to paddle. This is a great little kayak, and would definitely suit an older person, but tracks straight and fast for someone more athletic. Thankyou so much to Emily for helping me pick the right kayak....holidays have never been so much fun!!

Perfect, Manageable Easy

I’m 75yo 5ft2in in old language I can easily manage the Advanced Frame Sport . I’ve only paddled hard shell but this moves through the water beautifully had plenty of interest in it , didn’t take much to inflate and install foot rest and seat I’ve ordered a trolley because I can’t get close to the water. So impressed value for money and who doesn’t love free shipping to Perth smart business move. The most remarkable aspect it fits easily back in the bag . Thanks

A New Kayak

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.

Advanced Frame Sport Kayak

We’re very happy with this kayak. It’s easy to set up, paddles & tracks well & very easy to deflate & put back into its carry bag. A great kayak to take away on trips with our caravan. We’ve decided to buy a second one!

Advanced Frame Inflatable Sports Kayak

Fantastic piece of engineering, easy to inflate and easier to paddle. would recommend this Kayak to people of all ages. I would not travel in my motorhome without my Advanced Frame Inflatable Kayak

Gianni M.

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
