About Us

Welcome to Air Kayaks Direct! An Australian owned and operated business run by a team of dedicated watercraft experts making water sport fun for everyone!

Who We Are

Air Kayaks Direct is a local business dedicated to providing exceptional watercraft products based in Tyabb on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. We're right in the middle of two of Victoria's most vast and beautiful waterways - Port Phillip Bay and Westernport Bay.

Our business is based on the simple concept of taking care of our customers by providing the best products & experience possible when buying inflatable kayaks, SUPs and boats online.

Our History

The business was founded in 2016 by a passionate Aussie who had a love for kayaking and water sports after noting the lack of a central online store for inflatable watercraft in Australia

In early 2019, the business was purchased by Matt Scott who is just as passionate about water sports and saw great potential in Air Kayaks Direct.

We're Australia's #1 Source for Inflatable Kayaks, SUPs and Boats

At Air Kayaks Direct, we’re proud to be known as Australia's largest and best inflatable kayak, SUP and boat retailer. Whatever inflatable you need we're sure to have it!

This is what sets us apart from our competition and the mega-stores who sell everything and anything.

Instead of trying to be experts of hundreds of different products or activities like camping, 4x4 or skiing, we're committed to kayaks, SUPs and boats which we know inside-out.

By focusing on inflatable watercraft we've developed expertise that has helped us to bring together an amazing range of high-quality products such as inflatable kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, dinghies, sails, docks, lounges, platforms, towables and boating accessories to make your shopping experience as easy as possible.

The Benefit of Shopping With Air Kayaks Direct

Here at Air Kayaks Direct, we keep low overhead cost by focusing on selling products online unlike traditional brick-and-mortar stores who often have huge overhead costs that are passed onto the customer. 

This means that for many of the products we offer we ship directly from the manufacturer straight to your door which enables to pass on the savings to our customers by offering our products at the best prices possible.

For local Victorian customers who prefer to get an up-close view before purchasing we do offer a selection of products in our Tyabb showroom by appointment.
