Question pump

Postby Dams1 » Sat May 02, 2020 3:43 pm

Hy everyone, new sjr the forum, but not in kite, I take advantage of the confinement to ask 1 question.
1 of the spots where I ride, I only have access to the water by 1 pontoon, no beach, but less than 1 meter of water for a very long time. I am looking for 1 idea to inflate mkn kite, and will leave my pump in 1 waterproof bag with 1 anchor.
Do you have any suggestions?
I moved there not long, great spot, but difficult launch

Thank you

No, no joke. If you add a net, and an anchor, you have real cheap floating storage space.

Sure, I guess that worst- worst come to worst you lose a pump. However- be aware that one day you will not be able to kite back to the pontoon- the wind will die, or a line will break, or a bladder will lose air, or something. Make sure you have a plan in place for that day- can you safely get to land downwind from you? where, exactly, are you going to wash ashore? How will you get back to the boat? If you don't have good answers for those, it isn't a kiting spot.

He said 1 of the spots...

Sounds like an option for a foil kite? So no pump.

Thank you for the response.
I already ride this spot, it is sure that it is not ideal, but the wind is very stable, and I ride alone only in light winds, to avoid problems.
The foil kite, type flysurfer soul, is a Good idéa but it s more expensive at the moment.
