Pumps are really dangerous after use.

Postby nikalaitzian » Fri Dec 28, 2012 2:31 pm

hello guys...just started to snowkite with a LEI although I use a small pump(I pump to death with my big ones) I realize that it is too dangerous to have them in a backpack(if you fall hard probably you will hit your back).is there another way to pump the kite up there or should I reconsider the foils?i usually freeride and climbing hills and now trying my firsts glydes

You should really try the new speed 4; I was kiting yesterday in really strong wind. A friend was on a 6m Lei, another was on a sb 2012 8m and me; I was snowkiting with my Speed 4 10m. Far from being over; the kite really was rock solid.
