How To Secure A Kayak

  1. Email or complete the enquiry form letting Nick at Vortex know the exact kayak model (& colour) you are interested in.
  2. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your email. If you are a Gmail user, my email will be in your SPAM folder!
  3. Keep an eye on the website homepage for any changes/updates to the stock arrival dates. Please don't email for updates. They will be on the website.
  4. Once I have notification that stock arrival is imminent, I'll email you requesting you make a purchase to secure your order. If you want your kayak you will need to be prompt doing this.
  5. Stock availability & shipping dates very fluid at the moment. I will do my best to secure stock for your order - but I can't guarantee any stock or any shipping dates until I have kayaks & accessories here in the UK.
Advanced Elements kayaks

Advanced Elements is imported and sold by Vortex, an independent retailer run by Nick Pipe. Vortex aims to provide the very best advice & support for what is now Advanced Elements' main UK presence.

Advanced Elements' goal is to develop new and unique paddle sports products that enhance customers' outdoor experience. Their focus is on designing and manufacturing "inflatable kayaks with cutting edge technology".

Their kayaks incorporate many different materials and components, and deliver high performance at a reasonable price. They are the makers of the AdvancedFrame inflatable kayaks, Lagoon inflatable kayaks, and StraitEdge kayaks.

The AdvancedFrame kayaks are a hybrid of a folding frame kayak, and an inflatable kayak. Its bow slices through water like a knife and rivals the tracking of hard-shell kayaks. The stern acts as a skeg increasing the tracking performance and they have built-in rigid forms that increase the performance once inflated.

You can take your Advanced Elements kayak with you anywhere in the world, and no roof rack is needed! Keep it in the boot of your car, and paddle whenever you want. You can take it to a remote wilderness area and paddle where no one has paddled before. Simply inflate with a pump and hit the water in minutes.

Vortex provides the best after sales backup & support for your Advanced Elements inflatable kayak and gives our customers a 2 year warranty against material or manufacturing defects during normal and proper use.

Note: the warranty does not cover products used for rental, for hire or in professionally guided tours and other uses not considered normal recreational purposes; and punctures, cuts and abrasions sustained in normal use; and items involved in accidents; and items damaged in white water mishaps, and other unreasonable uses or improper storage.

Note: Vortex doesn't sell through Amazon or Ebay.
