What is Australyak?
Australyak is how we nicknamed the factory-direct service that we’ve been offering our Australian clients for years. Our company’s main website features several reviews contributed by Australian clients, some of which are anglers, and others are paddlers and photographers.
How does ordering a Wavewalk® kayak or car-top boat factory-direct work?
It’s fairly simple:
You contact Wavewalk by email, like any other customer does. We offer full technical and marketing support 7 days a week, all year round.
Once you know what model and accessories you want to order, you can pay by international check in US dollars, or by direct transfer (ACH) from your bank account to Wavewalk’s account.
We ship within a few days from receipt of payment.
We ship each Wavewalk® kayak and car-top boat in a custom cardboard box.
Our regular shipping destinations in Australia are the 5 main ports: Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Fremantle.
Your total additional cost for shipping the kayak from the U.S. factory to the Australian port of your choice is $210 US for a W500, and $270 for a W700. This price includes insurance.
Typical transit time from the US to Australian ports is 5 weeks.
Additional expenses in Australia:
- Duty – Our kayaks, paddles and other accessories are 100% Made in USA, and thanks to the Australia-USA Free Trade Agreement (AUSFTA) from 2004, duty is the lowest for this class of products (Canoes and kayaks).
- GST – You’d be required to pay this local tax, as you do for every other product in Australia.
- Customs clearing fees and port fees that may vary from time to time, and from one port to another.
- Other expenses may apply, such as local storage or inland shipping to your address if you don’t pickup the kayak at the port.
DISCLAIMER: The Australian business that called itself Blue Edge Sports had never been Wavewalk’s dealer or its distributor, and while it was active it was not affiliated with our company in any way. Blue Edge Sports did not purchase its stock of Wavewalk® kayaks from our company, and the Wavewalk kayaks it sold to Australian clients are not covered by our warranty. Blue Edge Sports used text and graphics in its website that mislead visitors to think that they are visiting the website of an Australian business that’s affiliated with Wavewalk, and this notion is entirely false.
