Well Aprils fools or not, it is clearly working.
I doubt that one cartridge will fill the claimed no of kites though... And don't like the waisted associated with the co2 patterns.
Shocking the guy tosses the pump in the water,😱

I am sure they got the pump back...it costs 20 bucks easily. And in the US you dont litter like that anyway...easily a 500 USD fine

Hilarious. I'm curious how they managed to hide the actual inflation mechanism when the kite inflated. Great bit of "video magic". Love the comment about "when it's windy, you'll want to anchor your kite before inflating!"

no doubt it would be the best inflation pump out there!!!

just would wonder how much pressure it shoots out...if this would break the tube.

LEI kite has a few hundred liters of air inside the struts, and it is a bit pressurized. So if smallish air cartridge would liked to be used it should have very high pressure inside to get even one kite filled. It is very different to use liquid CO2, which expands a lot when vaporising and it doesn't have that high pressure.

If kiters back is too weak to pump the kite or kiter gets out of breath when pumping, it is better leave this "extreme" sport to fitter people... I wouldn't recommend even foil kites

Agree. I always love the opportunity to warm up before a kite session.
