What is Australyak?
Australyak is how we nicknamed the factory-direct service that we’ve been offering our Australian clients since 2009. Our company’s main website features several reviews contributed by Australian clients, some of which are anglers, and others are paddlers and photographers.
Ordering a Wavewalk kayak factory direct
You contact Wavewalk by email, like any other customer does. We offer full technical and marketing support 7 days a week, all year round. If you want, we’ll call you and discuss with you all the questions you have about our products.
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 in a custom cardboard box, for best protection.
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, $270 US for a W700, and $310 for an S4. This pricing 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 for this class of products (Canoes and kayaks) is negligible.
- 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 inland shipping to your address if you don’t pickup the kayak at the port.
