Advanced Elements Inflatable Kayaks with structural support & Tracking Capabilities! At last, kayaks for condos! Do you live in a condo or apartment, yet crave owning your very own high performance, light weight kayak? We have the solution, in stock & ready to carry home in its own duffle bag. The answer is Advanced Elements inflatable kayaks, which are really a hybrid of an inflatable kayak and a folding frame kayak. The bow of these durable kayaks slices through the water like a knife, and they rival the tracking capabilities of a hard hull kayak. You can take these inflatables anywhere in the world & some models can even handle whitewater, due to the fact that they become self-bailing by uncapping some drain holes. There are sit-on-top, as well as cockpitted models. Of course, we can get all the models, as we are an Advanced Elements dealer.
Aquabound Paddles. It is no accident that Aquabound has been named a top paddle sport’s manufacturer for the last 5 years or so! Theses are top quality paddles that will bring you years of performance and high durability. The Manta Ray is great for aggressive, high angle paddling, while the Sting Ray is an all-purpose, very smooth in the water, highly efficient paddle. Aquabound has even found a way to make all carbon fiber paddles affordable. Visit Aquabound at http://www.aquabound.com/
